Frequently asked questions
What’s the benefit of combining exfoliation with epilation?
Braun Silk-épil 7 epilators remove up to 90% of hair in one stroke thanks to optimally positioned tweezers. The Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa removes hair as small as a grain of sand or 0.5mm which is four times shorter than wax can do. The main benefit of epilation is long-lasting, smooth, hair-free skin for up to four weeks. To ensure your skin glows with natural radiance, it’s also important to exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hairs. Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa combines these two essential beauty treatments in one product for visibly radiant and touchably smooth skin.
According to a recent consumer test [Independent research institute, 60 females, Germany, 2012] 90% of women agreed that the Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa offers two benefits in one device for better skin results, and 93% confirmed that it is like wellness for the skin.
What are the benefits of epilating with a Wet & Dry epilator?
Warm water relaxes and soothes your skin. The warmth improves your micro-circulation, stimulates the production of pain-reducing substances and makes your skin less sensitive. This is why the tugging sensation is considerably reduced in water. This is confirmed by a study conducted by the German dermatologist Dr. med. Petra Staubach at the University of Mainz. The majority of participants felt no or only a slight tugging sensation.
Is it safe to use the Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa in the shower and bath?
Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa is 100% waterproof and is safe for usage in or out of the shower and bath. The product features an automatic shut off mechanism that ensures the appliance only operates once the cord is removed from the mains power and recharger dock.
I have never epilated before – how should I go about it?
Braun’s Silk-épil epilators are the ideal choice for first-time users. Their High Frequency Massage system softly stimulates your skin with micro-pulsations before removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. Moreover, epilating on wet skin with the Silk-épil 7 epilators is especially gentle. Still, if you are inexperienced, you may feel a little discomfort during your first epilation sessions. This will decrease with each session, as the skin adjusts to the process and the individual hairs grow back at different speeds, so that there will be less hair to remove after the first session.
How do I go about the exfoliation?
You shouldn’t exfoliate intensively directly before or after epilating as it may leave your skin feeling delicate. But it is important to exfoliate regularly (approx. 1x a week) to keep skin smooth, glowing and healthy as well as to help prevent ingrown hairs. You can also use your favourite body wash or peeling gel for best results and extra comfort. When you use the product in the bathtub, do not immerse it fully in water since this will not provide optimal exfoliation results.
Does more hair grow back if I epilate?
No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair regrowth.
Is epilation painful?
Silk-épil 7 epilators have been developed especially to minimise any discomfort and irritation. Being able to use the product in water also reduces discomfort and irritation as the warmth of the water releases endorphins – the body’s natural pain reliever.
What areas of the body can the Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa be used on?
The Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa can be used on various areas of the body depending on personal choice. The epilator is designed to remove unwanted hair from the legs but it can also be used for arms, underarms and the more delicate bikini area. There are also specific attachments available in the different Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa models for the more sensitive areas like underarm, face and bikini. The exfoliation brush attachment is designed particularly for use on the arms, décolletage and legs, but it can also be used on other body areas if the user wishes. Braun does not recommend the use of the exfoliation brush on the face.
Does the brush wear out with frequent usage?
Braun recommends replacing the brush part every 9 months, latest every 12 months, to bring back the best exfoliation experience.

Used it wet on one leg, dry on the other and to be honest the hairs on my legs were the ideal length as stated in the instructions and they were still hairy. The water made no difference, the exfoliation made no difference. I was left having to shave my legs to finish the job which felt like a waste of time; spent an hour epilating my legs and then ten minutes having to finish the job by shaving and trying to catch where it'd missed (which was everywhere) and to be honest I could have saved myself the hour and shaved my legs completely in that ten minutes. This one as with the others under the Braun range claims to pick up hairs as small as a grain of sand, but to be honest, does it buggery!Read more ›
It used to take a long time, but now it's quick and hardly painful at all (apart from 'downstairs', but it's tolerable!!). If you're struggling to do it properly because you have a lot of leg hair and it hurts and takes ages, I recommend getting a wax first, then keeping up with epilating regularly afterwards to keep it at bay. It's worth getting up a little earlier in the morning to do it - it hardly takes any time at all now. I don't bother with the attachment to exfoliate by the way, I just use an exfoliating sponge :) .
Compared to leg waxing, I take the view that this cost me about £120 when I bought it, and I used to have to wait for my legs to get embarrassingly hairy so I could get them waxed once a month...I'd travel out of my way to see a woman to have an awkward conversation for up to an hour and pay £25 for the joy of it all...and there were plenty of hairs missed. Whereas I can do this in the comfort of my own home, in the bath if I like and it's relaxing and I can do it while vaguely watching the tv, and once it's bought it doesn't cost another penny til it starts to die in 2-3 years (my last Braun Silk Epil lasted 3 years). So you can either be bothered or can't. But coming from someone with black hair on pale white legs, and who hates the stubble after shaving and the annoyingness and expense and hassle of waxing...I cannot recommend it enough! It's brilliant :)
In terms of epilating, it wasn't too painful (I was braced for some full on pain). I tried doing the legs and arms first, then as I got braver, I tried the underarms, painful, but tolerable. I started with the sensitive area head, but eventually just went with the normal massaging head. All those reviews saying you have beautiful underarms - they were right! I don't think I will go back to shaving again. My underarms were smooth and stayed hairless for a good 5 days or so.
In the next couple of days, I noticed that I didn't do a very good job of epilating, as I could see patches of hair. I decided to try and epilate dry. Again, braced for some painful times, but it was okay! I was surprised at how much hair this epilator pulled out as you could only see them accumulating once you take off the cap (which was a bit annoying to keep cleaning). I even tried the facial cap, and it does great on upper lip hair as well. What can't this thing do?
The only thing I haven't tried is trying to epilate the bikini area - but I think I will try that in the bath first.
In terms of charging, this thing is amazing because I haven't had to recharge it since that first charge! So, I'm pretty sure I've used it for more than 40min from that first charge!
I haven't had to use the shaver as it kind of defeats the purpose, but I guess it would be useful for trimming if you have hair longer than 5mm, but seeing as how well the epilator pulls the shortest hairs (0.5mm), why would you wait that long for it to grow that much anyways?Read more ›
