Braun Silk·épil 5 has been designed
to make the removal of unwanted hair
efficient, gentle and easy. Its epilation
system removes hair at the root, leaving
your skin smooth for about 19 days.
The epilation head 2 features
40 tweezers that are uniquely arranged
to remove hair in a single stroke, for
unprecedented efficiency. The SoftLift®
tips integrated in the epilation head make
sure that even short hairs (0.5 mm) and
flat lying hairs are removed thoroughly at
the root.
It comes with two different attachments:
A The Dual Massage System gently
stimulates the skin before and soothes
it after the hair is pulled out to
significantly reduce the pain sensation.
a The EfficiencyPro cap easily fits your
body curves for a fast and pleasant
epilation session. It ensures maximum
skin contact at the optimum usage
position thus enabling more effective
hair removal.
The «smartlight» incorporated in the
switch reproduces an almost daylight
condition, thus revealing even the finest
hair and giving you a better control for
improved epilation efficiency.
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.
General information on epilation
All methods of hair removal at the root
can lead to ingrowing hair and irritation
(e.g. itching, discomfort and 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 mini-
mise 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 consul-
tation 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
2–5 mm (0.08–0.2 in.) If hairs are longer,
we recommend that you either shave first
99683011_SE5180-5280_NA_S6-.indd 8

and epilate the shorter re-growing hairs
after 1 or 2 weeks.
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 recom-
mend applying a moisture cream after
epilation.
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.

9 Ice glove
Optional skin cooling
For the first few epilations or if you have
sensitive skin, you can use the ice glove
9, recommended by dermatologists to
help reduce possible skin irritation.
• Ensure that the gel pack has been in
the deep freezer (***) for at least
2 hours (for convenience you can store
the gel packs in the freezer).
• Insert the gel pack underneath the
glove‘s transparent foil. Use only with
glove.
• Put transparent (cool) side of the glove
on your leg.
• Start cooling for approx. 1/2 minute,
longer if needed.
• Epilate the cooled skin area immedi-
ately.
• Repeat cooling and epilating until
completion.
• While epilating, please ensure your
skin is dry.
Important: Apply the ice glove to the
same area for no longer than 2 minutes.
Keep away from sunlight. Do not use
gel pack when damaged. Dispose of in
household waste. Do not use if you are
hypersensitive, allergic to the cold, or if
your skin suffers from sensory disturb-
ances, when suffering from cardiac
diseases or arterial circulatory disorders.
Before starting
• Your skin must be dry and free from
grease or cream.
• Plug the cord connector 6 into the
socket 5 and plug the special cord
set 7 into an electrical outlet.
A How to epilate
1 Make sure one of the attachments A
or a is attached to the epilation head.
To turn on the appliance, slide switch
4 to the «optimal» setting. For reduced
speed, choose the «soft» setting. The
«smartlight» illuminates as long as the
appliance is switched on.
2 Rub your skin to lift short hairs.
For optimum performance hold the
appliance at a right angle (90°) against
your skin. Guide it in a slow, contin-
uous movement without pressure
against the hair growth, in the direction
of the switch. As hair can grow in
different directions, it may also be
99683011_SE5180-5280_NA_S6-.indd 9

helpful to guide the appliance in
different directions to achieve optimum
results.
The Dual Massage System A should
always be kept in contact with the
skin, allowing the pulsating movements
to stimulate and relax the skin for a
gentler epilation. If you are used to
epilation and look for a faster way
to efficiently remove hair, attach the
EfficiencyPro cap a. It allows maxi-
mum skin contact and ensures an
optimum usage position.
3 Leg epilation
Epilate your legs from the lower leg
in an upward direction. When epilating
behind the knee, keep the leg stretch-
ed out straight.
4 Underarm and bikini line epilation
Please be aware that especially at the
beginning these areas are particularly
sensitive. With repeated usage the
pain sensation will diminish. For more
comfort, ensure that the hair is at the
optimum length of 2–5 mm.
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 so
that the skin is stretched and guide the
appliance in different directions.
As skin may be more sensitive directly
after epilation, avoid using irritating
substances such as deodorants with
alcohol.
Cleaning the epilation head
5 After epilating, unplug the appliance
and clean the epilation head.
If you have used one of the attach-
ments A or a, first remove it and
clean it with the brush.
6 To clean the tweezer element, use the
cleaning brush dipped into alcohol.
Clean the tweezers with the brush from
the rear side of the epilation head while
turning the barrel manually.
After cleaning, place your preferred
attachment back on the epilation head.

Shaving
1. Remove the OptiTrim attachment (a).
Put on the shaver head by clicking it
in (the long hair trimmer should be in
front).
2. When using the shaver head, always
slide switch up to setting «optimal».
3. For 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.
Important: Always stretch your skin when
shaving.
Pre-cutting hair for epilation
4. When using the shaver head to
pre-cut your hair to the ideal length
for epilation, put on the OptiTrim
attachment.
5. Hold 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.
12. We recommend that you oil the
trimmer every 3 months with a drop
of sewing machine oil.
13. Put the shaving foil frame back on
and snap it into place.
14. Replace 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.
