Why struggle with old-fashioned hair removal processes like shaving, plucking or waxing? Or pay premium prices for out-of-home salon treatments? Put the power of the most advanced home hair removal technology right in the palm of your hand.
With the introduction of the Infinity, we’ve improved upon our world-renowned Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology to make it even more effective and convenient, while still delivering the long-term at-home hair removal results that have made us famous around the globe.
In addition to optical light energy found in HPL, our new eHPL technology uses galvanic energy to open your pores, allowing the Infinity to treat thick, stubborn hairs right at their root even more effectively. With its quartz bulb, the device is able to reload faster than other technologies, allowing for more pulses in a shorter amount of time for speedy treatment that fits your schedule.
This gentle but effective treatment stops the growth of undesired hair without the stubble, ingrown hairs or redness of usual hair removal home treatments. In fact, thanks to the Infinity’s unique technology, galvanic energy stimulates the skin to rejuvenate it and allow for optimal absorption of moisturizer, so your skin is left feeling smoother and more supple.
With its compact, versatile design, and options to pulse or glide, you can customize your treatment for the most effective hair removal. Also, with a lifetime of pulses in one device, you will never have to worry about replacing your cartridge.

Silk’n hair removal devices are based on HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light) technology, which is a proprietary and patented technology we use to give you lasting hair removal results.
HPL™ is safe and effective for long-term hair removal because it uses optical light energy.
A quartz bulb delivers the optical light pulse, which is directed into the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft and is transformed into heat. This heat destroys the hair so it won’t grow back, while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The result is an effective, and virtually painless, treatment.
With the Infinity, we’ve improved on this technology by adding the power of galvanic energy for an even more powerful treatment, destroying deeply rooted, stubborn hair and stimulating your skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Galvanic energy is delivered through an electrode plate located at the rear of the Infinity device, near the treatment area. When the electrode touches the skin, the skin pores open, allowing optical energy to reach deeply to the root of the hair follicle, giving it access to even the most coarse, stubborn hairs. This energy also stimulates your skin to improve circulation and tone, while allowing for optimal absorption of post-treatment lotion -- perfect for those who struggle with dry, irritated skin.
After every treatment, the number of hairs is reduced, resulting in beautiful, smooth results for life.
The Silk’n Infinity is designed to facilitate the long-term reduction of hair growth. This means, with regular use as directed, you can expect to see fewer and fewer unwanted hairs grow back, ultimately leading to hair-free skin for life.
The Silk’n hair removal device is safe and effective for women and men. It is designed for use on the face (cheekbones down), legs, arms, underarms, bikini lines, and other areas of the body where unwanted hair grows.
Our patented HPL technology is best suited for lighter skin tones and darker hair. Our built-in skin color sensor prevents the device from turning on if the skin tone is too dark to treat. That means if your skin is too dark for the level you’ve chosen, there’s an automatic failsafe built in to prevent any damage to your skin.
This beauty tool is ideal for use with lighter skin tones (I to V on the Fitzpatrick Skin Tone Classification Scale, see diagram) and brown-to black hair and may work on blonde, grey or red hair if there is enough pigment. With five available energy levels, you can choose the level you’re most comfortable with. We recommend starting at level one just until your body gets used to using this type of system.
Note: The galvanic treatment works to enlarge your pores for a better application of the treatment. If you do not make hand contact with the base electrode, no galvanic treatment circulation will be emitted.
A typical full hair growth cycle may take 18 to 24 months. During this time, multiple hair removal sessions will be required in order to achieve long-lasting hair removal.
The efficiency of hair removal varies from person to person according to body area, hair color and how the device is used.
Here’s what a typical hair removal plan should look like during a full hair growth cycle:
Treatments 1 to 4: Two weeks apart.
Treatments 5 to 7: Four weeks apart.
Treatments 8+: Treat as needed, until desired hair removal results are achieved.
The device has five levels of energy from 1 (the lowest) to 5 (the highest), represented by five energy level indicator lights. The energy level you use controls the intensity of the light pulse projected on your skin during hair removal treatments, from the lowest level to the highest level. As the energy level increases, so do hair removal results, as well as the risk of possible side effects and complications. Please read your product manual thoroughly to understand these potential impacts. Also remember to always start treatments at the lowest energy level and increase it gradually as your personal comfort allows.
When the device is turned on, the energy level is automatically set to level 1 automatically. Only one energy level indicator light will be on. To change the energy level, press the control button repeatedly to button again to reduce the energy level from 5 back to 1.
For best hair removal results, always begin your first use at the lowest energy setting.
Pulsing is the best technique for treating specific spots or small areas. It’s ideal for facial hair removal (such as upper lip hair removal), men's back hair removal and treating other targeted areas of the body.
To pulse, press the treatment surface against your skin. Work in rows either across or down the treatment area. The treatment surface creates temporary pressure marks on the treated area so you can see areas you have treated. After each pulse, move the treatment surface to the next spot. Keep doing this pulsing action for the area you are treating.
Avoid gaps or overlaps as you use the device.
Gliding is the best technique for treating larger parts of the body. This technique is perfect for leg hair removal, under arm hair removal and treating large sections of the body.
To glide, press the treatment surface firmly against your skin and slowly glide over your skin (either across or down as shown in the image). Make sure that the treatment surface is always touching your skin.
At lower energy levels, the device takes only one to 1.5 seconds to recharge between pulses. This generates a nonstop sequence of flashes. Glide at a regular speed to ensure you avoid gaps or overlaps
The Silk’n Infinity is a light-based hair removal device that uses both galvanic and optical energy to deliver the best possible hair removal results in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
This new technology not only removes stubborn unwanted hair far more efficiently than other technologies, but also revitalizes the skin at the same time, leaving it silky smooth.
The device emits both energies at the same time, but each has a different function. Galvanic energy opens your pores, ensuring that the optical energy can easily access the follicles. The optical energy is absorbed selectively in the hair shaft and removes hairs in the fastest possible way. After each treatment, hair growth is reduced. Because the skin pores are open after treatment, you can apply a body lotion for perfect skin. The result leaves you with silky smooth skin with a radiant glow. The skin pores close by themselves.
The device emits eHPL technology in the form of a light pulse, which is delivered through an electrode plate located near at the bottom of the device. To activate the eHPL technology, all you have to do is lightly touch the electrode plate with your fingers and hold the device on the desired hair removal area at the same time. Hold the device with one hand, with your fingers touching both the front (the light pulse button) and the back (the electrode plate). When you press the light pulse button, galvanic and optical energy are emitted to the treatment surface (the glass pane) in order to remove hairs. To learn more, watch a video of this process on our product page.
The Infinity is suitable for both women and men. This device is not recommended for users with certain health conditions, so please make sure that you read the contraindications found in the Infinity user manual before you start your treatments.
The body undergoes a number of hormonal changes during adolescence, so treatments may be less effective to those going through puberty. As a general guideline, we recommend individuals under the age of 16 avoid using the Infinity, or any of our HPL hair removal devices. There is no maximum age for adults who want to use the device.
The Silk'n Infinity may work on blonde, grey or red hair if there is enough pigment to attract the light. We don’t recommend you use it on white hair, as results will be minimal.
The lowest energy level (1) is designed for safe use even after sun exposure. If you use energy levels 2 to 5, avoid exposure to the sun for four weeks before and two weeks after your treatment. This applies to all skin types, even those that don't seem to tan quickly.
In general, the Infinity can be used on the body and face, except for the eye area, nipples and genitals. There are exceptions to this rule due to skin conditions and/or diseases. To learn more, please read the device manual carefully.
Yes, with Silk’n, safety always comes first. The Infinity has been put through rigorous testing to ensure safe, long-term operation. The low energy used in Silk’n hair removal devices reduces its potential to cause harm or complications and contributes to your overall safety. eHPL technology can achieve long-term hair removal results at a fraction of the energy level used in professional light-based hair removal equipment.
Most users report no pain at all; instead, most report feeling a slight sensation of heat and tingling when a light pulse is emitted. Users with thicker and darker hairs may feel slightly more, but this subsides once the hair removal session is completed. For your convenience, this device has five energy levels that can be set according to your own sensitivity and tolerance. It is important that you don't treat the same area of skin more than once per hair removal session as this increases the likelihood of adverse effects.
This is a built-in safety sensor which stops the device from emitting a light pulse if your skin tone is too dark for treatment. The sensor ensures that your skin is being protected.
The time it takes for full hair removal can vary depending on the area of the body that is treated. Do you want to remove hair quickly? Silk’n Infinity can produce individual light pulses at automatic intervals. This gliding method is unique, ultra-fast and you can simply glide the device over your skin. With this method a full-body treatment takes less than 20 minutes.
Typical hair removal plan during a full hair growth cycle:
Make sure that the treatment surface and the Skin Colour Sensor are in full contact with your skin. If the device doesn't emit a light pulse at all, please call Silk'n Customer Service at 1-877-367-4556.
It will take six to eight months for desired results, however a typical full hair growth cycle can take 18 to 24 months. During this time additional sessions may be required in order to achieve long-term hair results. The duration of hair removal sessions varies per person according to their body area, hair colour and how the device is used.
As with any light-based or laser hair removal device, results are not immediate. In fact, hair may sometimes appear to be growing back after a hair removal session, but typically after two weeks many of these hairs will simply fall out. Also, hair grows in three different stages and only hairs in an active growth stage will be affected. Thus, hairs that are not active cannot be targeted. This is one of the main reasons why multiple sessions are required to achieve the desired result.
Silk'n Infinity contains enough pulses for a lifetime of full-body treatments, so no replacement cartridges are needed! There is no need to ever purchase a refill, saving you even more money.
Yes. For better results and a better experience, we recommend you shave before and in between treatments. We do not recommend you wax, because the hair shaft will be removed and therefore cannot be treated. Also, do not pluck or tweeze the hair out.
It is quite common for hair to appear as if it is still growing up to two weeks after a hair removal session. This process is known as ejection, and after about two weeks you’ll see that these hairs simply fall out. Please do not pull out the treated hairs, just let them fall out naturally.
We recommend you don’t use this device when you’re pregnant or nursing.
