In the following we would like to familiarise you with the appliance and provide some useful information about epilation. Please read the use instructions carefully and thoroughly before using the appliance.

Braun Silk·épil EverSoft Body System has been designed to make the removal of unwanted hair as efficient, gentle and easy as possible. Its proven epilation system removes your hair at the root, leaving your skin smooth for weeks.

The high-precisionepilation head2 with its unique arrangement of tweezers and the integratedfeed-ingeometry ensures an efficient epilation and removes even hair as short as 0.5 mm at the root. As the hair that regrows is fine and soft, there will be no more stubble.

The EverSoft attachment makes the epilation ultra gentle. With its pulsating movement it stimulates and relaxes the skin, thus masking the pulling sensation.

The shaver head provides a fast and close shave for a quick retouch of personal body parts.

Important

This appliance must never be used near water (e.g. a filled wash basin, bathtub or shower).

Keep the appliance out of the reach of children.

When switched on, the appliance must never come in contact with the hair on your head, eyelashes, ribbons, etc. to prevent any danger of injury as well as to prevent blockage or damage to the appliance.

Before use, check whether your voltage corresponds to the voltage printed on the transformer. Always use the country-specific12 V transformer plug supplied with the product (USA/ CDN: type

PI-41-77D-1,Mexico:PI-41-77AR).

General information on epilation

Silk·épil is designed to remove hair on legs, but it can also be used on all sensitive areas like forearms, the underarm or the bikini line.

All methods of hair removal at the root can lead to in-growinghair and irritation (e.g. itching, discomfort or reddening of the skin), depending on the condition of the skin and hair.

This is a normal reaction and should quickly disappear, but may be stronger when you are removing hair at the root for the first few times or if you have sensitive skin.

If, after 36 hours, the skin still shows irritation, we recommend that you contact your physician.

In general, the skin reaction and the sensation of pain tend to diminish considerably with the repeated use of Silk·épil.

In some cases inflammation of the skin could occur when bacteria penetrate the skin (e.g. when sliding the appliance over the skin). Thorough cleaning of the epilation head before each use will minimise the risk of infection.

If you have any doubts about using this appliance, please consult your physician. In the following cases, this appliance should only be used after prior consultation with a physician:

eczema, wounds, inflamed skin reactions such as folliculitis (purulent hair follicles) and varicose veins

around moles

reduced immunity of the skin, e.g. diabetes mellitus, during pregnancy, Raynaud’s disease

haemophilia or immune deficiency.

Some useful tips

Epilation is easier and more comfortable when the hair is at the optimum length of 2–5mm(0.08–0.2in.) If hairs are longer, we recommend topre-cutto this length using the shaver head with the OptiTrim attachmentH.

When epilating for the first time, it is advisable to epilate in the evening, so that any possible reddening can disappear overnight. To relax the skin we recommend applying a moisture cream after epilation. Fine hair which re-growsmight not grow up to the skin surface. The regular use of massage sponges (e.g. after showering) or exfoliation peelings helps to prevent ingrowing hair as the gentle scrubbing action removes the upper skin layer and fine hair can get through to the skin surface.

A How to epilate

Your skin must be dry and free from grease or cream.

Before starting, thoroughly clean the epilation head 2.

Put on the epilation head and make

sure that the EverSoft attachment 1 is in place.

Plug the cord connector 6into the socket5and plug the transformer plug7into an electrical outlet.

1To turn on the appliance, slide switch 4to setting «2»

(«2»= normal speed, «1» = reduced speed).

2Rub your skin to lift short hairs. For optimal performance, hold the

appliance at a right angle (90°) against your skin and guide it without pressure against the hair growth, in the direction of the switch. Both rolls of the EverSoft attachment should always be kept in contact with the skin, allowing the pulsating movements to stimulate and relax the skin for a gentler epilation.

3Leg epilation

Epilate your legs from the lower leg in an upward direction. When epilating behind the knee, keep the leg stretched out straight.

4Underarm and bikini line epilation

Use tests monitored by dermatologists have revealed that you can also epilate the underarm and the bikini line. Please be aware that these areas are particularly sensitive to pain. With repeated usage the pain sensation will diminish.

Before epilating, thoroughly clean the respective area to remove residue (like deodorant). Then carefully dab dry with a towel. When epilating the underarm, keep your arm raised up and guide the appliance in different directions.

Cleaning the epilation head

5After epilating, unplug the appliance and clean the epilation head:

First take off the EverSoft attachment 1and brush out the rolls.

6Thoroughly clean the tweezer element with the cleaning brush and also with alcohol. While cleaning, you can turn the tweezer element manually. To

remove the epilation head, press the release buttons 3on the left and right and pull it off.

7Give the top of the housing a quick clean with the brush. Replace the epilation head and the EverSoft attachment.

B Shaving

1Remove the OptiTrim attachment H. Put on the shaver head by clicking it in (the long hair trimmer should be in front).

2When using the shaver head, always slide switch up to setting «2».

3For best results, guide the shaving system in a way that about half of the shaving foil and the trimmer are in contact with your skin. Always guide the appliance in the direction of the trimmer. The trimmer first raises all

long hairs and cuts them off. Then the flexible foil follows to smooth away any stubble.

Pre-cuttinghair for epilation

4When using the shaver head to pre-cutyour hair to the ideal length for epilation, put on the OptiTrim attachment.

5Hold the appliance with the OptiTrim attachment ensuring that the surface of the comb is lying flat on the skin.

Guide the appliance with the comb tips against the hair growth as shown

in illustration B5.

Important: As hair does not always grow in the same direction, it may be difficult to cut. In which case, guide the appliance slightly diagonally or in different directions.

Cleaning the shaver head

6 After shaving, unplug the appliance and, if necessary, remove the OptiTrim attachment.

7 Clean the OptiTrim attachment with the brush.

8 In order to clean the shaver head, remove the shaving foil frame.

To do so, press the release bars on the front and back and pull it off.

9 Carefully tap the shaving foil frame on a flat surface.

10 Brush out the cutter block as well as the area below the cutter block.

11 Caution: The shaving foil is a very delicate part that must not be cleaned with the brush.

12We recommend that you oil the trimmer every 3 months with a drop of sewing machine oil.

13Put the shaving foil frame back on and snap it into place.

14Replace the OptiTrim attachment because it also serves as a protective

cap.

Caution: Do not use the shaver head with a damaged shaving foil.

Replacing the shaving parts

The shaving foil and the cutter block are precision parts that wear out with the time. Have the shaving foil frame and the cutter block replaced when you notice a reduced shaving performance.

Subject to change without notice.
