I mentioned in my quick review in the 5 Best Home Laser and IPL Hair Removal Machines (please read as I have included my first impressions of the machine here) that the best feature about the Silk’n SN-008 Flash & Go is that it’s one of the most cost effective devices to buy.
I also need to mentioned that you get more bang for your buck when it comes to cartridges (as pictured to the right, this hair removal device requires cartridge replacement, to check the price of the cartridges, click here).
Retails anywhere between $300 – $450

From memory, in comparison of the cartridge price with other devices, I think they are cheaper than other machines, but each cartridge also lasts for more pulses per cartridge which is something to keep in mind also. For example, the Silk’n SN-008 Flash&Go cartridge lasts for approx. 2,000 flashes, whereas the Remington IPL6000USA I-Light Pro is said to pulse at 1,500 flashes per cartridge. If you are cash strapped but are still looking for an effective and safe home hair removal machine, the Silk’n Flash & Go may just be your answer.
Another point to remember here that the Silk’n home hair removal device is not actually considered a laser machine nor an IPL hair removal machine. Silk’n have invented their own HPL technology that stands for Home Pulsed LightTM (HPL) technology which is a form of IPL. It’s an effective way to remove body hair permanently, it just works slightly different that laser or ipl but has the same results.
It’s also suitable for both women and men.
What I do like about the Silk’n Flash & Go is that its head is super handy. You can get into small areas really easy as it has a really good design. Another important point to remember that it is also FDA approved and cleared.
According to the Silk’n hair removal clinical study the average hair reduction was achieved after 6 months. 150 females took part in the study and found results in these areas of the body – 54% on the legs, 52% on the arms, 41% in the underarms and 43% in the bikini area.
