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 SoftPerfection 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.
If you have not used an epilator before, or if you have not epilated for a longer period of time, it may take a short while for your skin to adapt to epilation. The discomfort experienced at first is considerably reduced with repeated use as the number of hair to be removed decreases over time and as the skin adjusts to the process.
The Braun Silk·épil SoftPerfection Easy Start has been specially designed to make your start in epilation easy as it gently helps your skin in the adjustment phase.
•The starter epilation head b has been developed especially for the first few epilations, when skin is not yet used to the process and also for sensitive skin. Compared to the standard epilation head it has fewer tweezers that are
further apart, pulling out less hair simultaneously. This makes the process much gentler and helps your skin adjust to epilation, but will take a bit longer than with the standard epilation head.
•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 countryspecific 12 V transformer plug supplied with the product.
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
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
–reduced immunity of the skin, e.g. diabetes mellitus, during pregnancy, Raynaud’s disease
–haemophilia or immune deficiency.

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.
