How does it work?
Braun Silk·expert Pro 3 works beneath the skin surface by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, helping
to break the cycle of hair re-growth. With continued, periodic use, the light energy helps prevent unwanted
hair from reaching the skin surface.
The intelligent SensoAdapt™ skin sensors (2) continuously read your skin tone before every flash,
automatically adapting the light intensity for best efficacy and safety. This allows treatment of appropriate
skin tones, but prevents treatment if your skin tone is too dark.
Contraindications
Do not use the device …
• if your skin is darker than skin tone V shown on the skin tone chart on page 19.
Since dark skin absorbs more light energy, treating very dark skin may cause
discomfort/pain and adverse effects (e.g., burns, blisters, discoloration or
scarring) and injure your skin.

sunburn, cuts, open wounds or active infections) in the areas you wish to treat.
• You have varicose veins in the area you wish to treat.
• You have a known sensitivity to sunlight (photosensitivity) or are taking
medication that may make the skin more sensitive (e.g. Retin A, Accutane and/or
other topical retinoids).
• You have had a professional skin peel treatment on the area you wish to treat.
• You have any of the above, this device may injure your skin or make existing
conditions worse. You may experience side effects such as burns, blisters and
skin color changes (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation) or scarring.
If you are unsure whether this device is safe for you to use, please consult your
physician or dermatologist.
If you take any kind of medication regularly and over a long period of time, please
consult your physician for any potential impact on skin sensitivity to light.
Warnings
Do not use on …
• scalp, eyebrows or anywhere near or around the eyes. Use in these areas may
permanently damage your eyes.
• a tattoo or permanent makeup in the treatment area.
• nipples, genitals or around the anus. These areas may have a darker skin color
and/or greater hair density and using the device in these areas may cause
discomfort/pain or injure your skin.
• dark brown or black spots such as freckles, birthmarks, moles or warts in the
treatment area.
• beard / facial hair for men.
Do not look directly into the glass filter (9) or attempt to activate the device toward

How to use
Preparing the treatment area
Remove any visible hair on the skin before using the device. You may use your preferred hair removal
method. To keep the treatment window clean and intact, ensure there is no hair remaining on the skin
surface. Clean the treatment area and pat it dry.
To power on the device:
Use the mains cord (8) to connect the base station to an electrical outlet. Press the gentle mode button (4)
to activate the device. The LED power bars (3) will light up once and, a fan starts running. This means the
device is in READY mode. During operation, the device will heat up slightly.
Automatic light adaptation
When both skin tone sensors (2) have skin contact, the device reads your skin tone and selects the
appropriate light intensity which is indicated by white LEDs on the Power bars (3). These confirm that the
device is ready to flash.
light skin tone U high light intensity
dark skin tone U low light intensity
no LEDs
no skin contact U device will not flash
red LED
invalid skin tone U device will not flash
Gentle mode
Push the gentle mode button (4) to reduce the light intensity. The gentle mode indicator lights up when it is
activated. To deactivate it, press the gentle mode button again.
The power bars flash to confirm a change in the light intensity setting.
When holding the gentle mode button (4) longer than 3 seconds, the device is deactivated.
After 10 minutes without use, the device is automatically deactivated.
To re-activate it, press the gentle mode button.
Patch Test
Before your first treatment, we recommend you test your skin for reaction to Braun Silk·expert on a small
area of skin of the body part you plan to treat (about 2 x 3 cm in size; equivalent to the size of two flashes,
side by side).
Perform a patch test as described below in chapter «Treatment methods», section «STAMPING».
Wait 48 hours to examine the test area. If the skin appears normal, begin your first treatment. If a skin
reaction develops, discontinue using the device and consult your physician. Do not treat the patch tested
area for at least one week after the test.

Treatment methods
The area to be treated must be hair-free, clean and dry. Before pushing the treatment button, look away
from the device to avoid the bright light.
GLIDING
for fast and efficient
treatment of large areas
(e.g. legs).
STAMPING
for treating small,
hard-to reach areas
(e.g. face for females,
bikini line, underarms,
knee, chin, ankles)
1. Place the treatment window firmly on your skin, ensuring both skin sensors have skin contact.
The 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.
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 the gliding stroke is completed, lift the
device off the treatment area. Repeat steps 1-3 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 you 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.
Treatment head(s)
While the standard head (10) can be used on all areas, it is ideal for efficiently
treating large areas, e.g. legs.
The precision head (11) (not with all models) has been specifically designed
for small, curvy, hard to reach areas, e.g. face for females, bikini line, underarms,
knee, shin, ankle. With the precision head attached, the flashing sequence is slower.
How to treat the face (females only)
• Before treating the face, make sure you have done a patch test. Remove any visible hair and cosmetics,
lotions and creams from the area you wish to treat.
• Before pressing the treatment button, close your eyes or look away to avoid the bright light. Avoid
treating the same area twice as this may increase the chance of producing adverse reactions.
• When treating the upper lip area, avoid contact with the lips and the nostrils. The central area below the
nostrils might be sensitive.
• Do not use on permanent / semi-permanent lip liner on the lip margin.
• TIP: You can press your lips together to ensure that the light does not activate on the upper lip itself.
• Hair growth under the chin can be denser and coarser. This can sometimes lead to slight skin reddening
following a treatment. This redness is temporary and should completely disappear after 24 hours.
NOTE:
• If redness or a burning sensation occurs and lasts for several minutes, apply a cool cloth/pad to soothe
the area.
• If any pigment changes in the skin, e.g., lightening or darkening, are observed, stop using the device.
Seek medical advice to determine the cause which may be due to an underlying medical condition.

Treatment plan
Start-up phase
1 treatment per week (4-12 weeks)
Maintenance treatment
continue treating to your needs, e.g.
every 1-2 months.
The typical hair growth cycle varies between individuals and could take up to 16 months depending on
body area (underarm, lower leg, bikini area). Since only hairs in their growing phase are susceptible to
treatment with light, it is important to do multiple treatments to achieve continuously smooth skin. For this
reason, we recommend a start-up phase with one treatment per week over a period of 4 -12 weeks.
In case you no longer see hair growing, you do not need to complete the full 12 weekly treatments. You can
switch to the maintenance treatments.
After treatment
Once you have completed your treatment, unplug the power supply from the electrical outlet.
After treatment, we recommend using sunscreen SPF >15 whenever treated areas may be exposed to the
sun. We recommend avoiding exposure to artificial light sources, such as tanning booths or solariums.
Avoid any activity or skin products that may irritate your skin for 24 hours after treatment. This includes
using hot tubs or saunas, wearing tight-fitting clothing, using bleaching creams, perfumed products or
exfoliation products. The above may cause irritation, such as itching and redness, in the treated areas.
Cleaning and storage
After each treatment, 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, clean them off
straight away. Do not touch or clean the glass filter (9) immediately after use to allow it to cool down.
Do not rinse or immerse the device in water or any other liquid.
To ensure maximum performance, keep the heads (10, 11) with their built-in reflectors free from dirt, hair
or other debris. Do not clean in water, but use a dry cloth for cleaning them carefully.
Store the device in a cool, dry place. Make sure the treatment window and skin sensors are protected from
damage.
