2 How Does Silk·expert Work?
Silk·expert is designed to help break the cycle of hair growth. Light energy is transferred through the skin’s
surface and is absorbed by melanin present in the hair shaft. The absorbed light energy is converted to
heat energy (below the surface of the skin), which disables the hair follicle. Treated hairs naturally fall out
over the course of a few days to 1-2 weeks.
What to Expect
Immediately post treatment, you should not see any significant side effects from treatment (Refer to
section 4 for more information on side effects).
In the first few weeks following the initial treatments, you will still see some hairs growing. These are likely
to be hairs that were missed during treatment i.e. they were lying dormant and not in their growth phase
(Anagen) during treatment, when IPL is most effective.
Around 6 weeks into the 12 week treatment program you should see a reduction in hair growth. However,
many hairs may still not have been treated in their growth phase. It is important to continue the weekly
treatments.
After the 12 week program, you should see a significant reduction in hairs within the treated area. Any
remaining hairs should be finer and lighter in color. Continued monthly treatments, or treatments as
required, should maintain the reduction in unwanted hair.
3 Important Safety Information
3.1 Contraindications
DO NOT use the device if you have very dark skin. The Skin Tone sensors located near
the output window of the device will determine the tone of your skin. If the Skin Tone
sensors determine your skin is too dark for safe use, operation will be prevented.
DO NOT use the device if your skin has been artificially or naturally tanned recently
or is burned from sun overexposure. Your skin may be extra sensitive following sun
exposure and particularly susceptible to burning, blistering, discoloring or scarring
if you use the device. Wait 1 week until sunburn or tan disappears before using the
device. Treating tanned skin with IPL may result in permanent Hyper (darkening) or
Hypo (lightening) changes to the treated skin.

In a clinical trial of 50 subjects, each subject received 12 weekly treatments. The recorded effects were:
• Itchiness: Four subjects experienced mild itchiness after treatment.
• Slight Redness: This was reported by 1 subject.
• Mild Stinging Sensation: Five subjects reported mild discomfort following treatment.
• In-growing Hair: One subject reported experiencing an in-growing hair following treatment.
• Follicle Redness: One subject reported a red spot at the treatment site following treatment.
In all cases, the treated skin returned to normal within 7 days.
5 Benefits
The device is indicated for the permanent reduction of unwanted hair.
A clinical trial was performed to assess both the safety and efficacy of the device. The key features of the
clinical trial were:
• All treatments were performed by non-medically trained operators at a single location using devices
identical to the one provided in this package;
• All subjects were required to complete questionnaires related to their general health and those who
could not be treated, e.g. those who had one or more of the contraindications as listed in Section 3 of
this User Manual were excluded. In addition, all subjects were required to provide Informed Consent as
per international clinical trial requirements;
• A total of 53 female subjects, aged between 19 and 45 years old, commenced the trial;
• Three subjects left the trial during the treatment period for personal reasons. No subjects left the trial
due to problems associated with the use of the device;
• Each subject received 12 weekly treatments to their chosen body location. A typical treatment consisted
of shaving the site then applying the device following the same process as outlined in Section 7, Step 3
of this user manual;
• Hair counts were used to measure the change in the amount of hair 6 months after the last treatment
and 12 months after the last treatment. The hairs in the treatment sites were counted via high resolution
photography and the difference in hair counts was calculated as a percentage change;
• When used as directed, the clinical trial participants showed on average 44% less hair 6 months after
their last treatment and 36% less hair 12 months after their last treatment when compared to hair counts
taken before treatment (see table below). Actual results did vary from person to person.

SKIN COLOR
The device is intended for use on light, medium and dark skin tones up to and including skin tone V (see
Skin tone chart on page 3). The device incorporates two Skin Tone Sensors that measure the color of your
skin and will prevent use if your skin tone is too dark.
HAIR COLOR
The device is intended for use on naturally black or brown hair. It may not be as effective on white, grey,
blonde or red hair.
7 How To Use
WARNING: Follow each step in the treatment process ensuring you complete all aspects of each step
before progressing to the next.
Step 1: Preparing the treatment area
Remove all visible hair on the skin before using the device. You may use your preferred hair removal
method. Ensure there is no hair remaining above the surface of the skin as this can damage the removable
front (9) and may cause treatment discomfort. Remove any cosmetics, lotions and cream from the area
you wish to treat. Cleanse the treatment area and pat dry.
Step 2: Doing a Test Patch
Before your first treatment on each new body area, we RECOMMEND you test your skin (in that area) for
reactions.
The patch test area should be approximately 3 cm x 2 cm in size (equivalent to 2 flashes applied to the skin
side by side). Follow Step 3 to treat the area.
Wait 24 hours following the patch test, to ensure your skin is suitable for treatment and there is no adverse
reaction to the light energy. If there is no reaction after 24 hours, you may treat the area around the test
patch. The ‘patch tested area’ should not be re-treated for at least one week.
Step 3: Treating with Silk·expert
a) Plug the mains cord (8) into an electrical outlet. Plug the power supply (7) into the power socket (6).
The LED power bars (3) will light up once and a fan will start running. This means the device is in READY
mode. During operation, the device will heat up slightly.
b) Press the treatment window (1) firmly against the area to be treated ensuring both skin tone sensors (2)
are in contact with skin. The device will not operate if only one skin tone sensor is in contact with skin.
Once both skin tone sensors measure a valid skin tone, the pre-set output power is displayed on the
LED Power Bars (3) located on both sides of the device.
The skin tone sensors measure the color of your skin and set the correct level of output power needed.
If your skin is too dark for treatment with Silk·expert, the skin tone sensors will detect this and prevent
the unit from operating.
RED lights will be shown in the Power Bar if your skin is too dark.
If a valid skin tone is detected, the Power Bars will illuminate WHITE.

c) Press the treatment button (5). The device will flash and a warm sensation should be felt.
If you find the treatment uncomfortable, you may reduce the light intensity using the light intensity
button (4):
Normal setting: After plugging in, the device operates with full light intensity shown by a white
indicator light.
Gentle setting: Press button (4) in order to operate with reduced light intensity. The light
shines blue.
Extra gentle setting: Press button (4) a second time: The light flashes blue.
To return to full power, press button (4) again.
Gentle and extra gentle settings are meant for sensitive areas and first time users. With reduced light
intensity more treatments may be required to see the desired effects.
d) Move the treatment window to the next area to be treated and repeat. The device needs to recharge
between flashes. This will take between 1-2 seconds.
e) Ensure that the entire area receives treatment, but DO NOT treat an area twice (overlapping flashes).
8 Treatment Modes
Depending on the area you wish to treat you can choose between Gliding mode and Precision mode:
Gliding mode enables fast and efficient treatments and is recommended for large skin surface areas
(e.g. legs, arms, chest and back) while Precision mode is recommended for treating sensitive or small,
hard-to reach areas such as knees, shins, ankles, bikini line or underarm and face for females.
The area to be treated has to be hair-free, clean and dry. Before pressing the treatment button, look away
from the device to avoid the bright light.
Gliding mode
Precision mode
1. Place the treatment window (1) firmly on your skin, ensuring both skin sensors (2) have skin contact.
Power bars (3) show white LEDs.
2. Press and hold the treatment button (5).
The device will begin to flash.
2. Press and instantly release the treatment
button (5). The device will emit a flash.
3. Move the device slowly and continuously from the
bottom to the top of the treatment area to avoid
missing areas. Make sure to always keep full skin
contact so that the device flashes continuously.
3. Lift off the device and place it onto the next
adjacent spot to be treated. Wait for the
power bars to show white LEDs. Then press
and release the treatment button.
Once you have completed your first gliding stroke, lift
the device off the treatment area. Repeat steps 1 to
3 to treat the next adjacent area in a parallel stroke.
Continue treatment spot by spot until you have
completed the entire area you wish to treat.
Make sure to avoid missed areas by placing the treatment window directly next to the previously
treated spot without leaving any space between treated areas.
If you feel intense pain, stop treatment immediately and consult your physician before using the device again.
Standby mode
After 10 minutes of inactivity, the device will revert to standby mode (which will be indicated by one blinking
light on the power indicator bars). To return to READY mode, press any key or remove/replace the power cord.
Sleep mode
If the device is not operated (no button push) for 60 minutes, it will enter sleep mode (low power state).
The Power bar LEDs are off. To return to READY mode, press any button or remove/replace the mains

cord. On wake-up the device will follow the standard “power on” procedure (power bars will light up
completely once).
Step 4: Your Treatment Schedule
For optimal results, Silk·expert should be used once a week for 12 weeks to ensure all hair follicles are
treated.
After the initial treatment phase (12 treatments), we recommend the device is used once a month, or as
required, to maintain results.
Step 5: Switching Off the Device
When the treatment is finished, unplug the device from the power supply, and the electrical outlet. Refer to
section 9 for details of how best to look after your Silk·expert.
9 Cleaning, Maintenance and Storage
After treatment, always switch off Silk·expert by unplugging the power supply from the device and the
electrical outlet.
After use, the handset, the skin tone sensors (2) and the treatment window (1) should be inspected for
damage and wiped down with a dry, lint free cloth. If any marks or black spots are seen, then it is best to
clean them off straight away after treatment.
NEVER use water or other cleaning fluids, as these can damage the device leading to a potential safety hazard.
WARNING: The glass filter (10) can get hot during use. DO NOT touch or clean the filter for at least 5 minutes
after use to allow it to cool down.
To ensure maximum performance of your Silk·expert, it is particularly important to keep the removable
front and reflector (9) free from dirt, hair or other debris.
To aid in the cleaning of this part, the front section (9) is removable. Once removed, it can be cleaned with
a slightly damp cloth. Always ensure the removable front is completely dry before re-fitting to the device.
Grip the sides of the front section (9) and pull away from the device. Once cleaned, replace it ensuring it is
fully inserted. It will only fit one way. Do not force it.
Store the device in a cool, dry place. Make sure that the treatment window and skin tone sensors are
protected from damage.
Regularly check the device (including cords) for visible signs of damage. In case of damage or cracks,
stop using the device.
  Travelling with the Device
The power supply unit is universal and will work with all commonly encountered mains supplies. Providing
