Our products are engineered to meet the
highest standards of quality, functionality
and design. We hope you thoroughly
enjoy using your Braun Silk·épil 5.
Please read the use instructions carefully
and thoroughly before using the
appliance.
Braun Silk·épil 5 has been designed to
make the removal of unwanted hair as
efficient, gentle and easy as possible. Its
proven epilation system removes hair at
the root, leaving your skin smooth for
weeks. As the hair that re-grows is fine
and soft, there will be no more stubble.
Warning
For hygienic reasons, do not share this
appliance with other people.
Keep the appliance dry.
This appliance is not intended for use
by children or persons with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities,
unless they are given supervision by a
person responsible for their safety. In
general, we recommend that you keep
the appliance out of 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.
This appliance is provided with an
integrated Safety Extra Low Voltage
power supply. Do not exchange or
manipulate any part of it. Otherwise
there is risk of electric shock. For
electric specifications, please see type
plate on the special cord set. The
special cord set automatically adapts
to any worldwide AC voltage.
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
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.
Fine hair which re-grows might 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.

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
immediately.
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
disturbances, when suffering from
cardiac diseases or arterial circulatory
disorders.
Before starting
Your skin must be dry and free from
grease or cream.
Before starting, thoroughly clean the
epilation head.
To remove the epilation head, press
the release buttons 3 on the left and
right and pull it off.
How to epilate
The epilation head 2 features
40 tweezers that are uniquely arranged to
remove more 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 signifi-
cantly reduce the pain sensation.

a The flexible 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.
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
helpful to guide the appliance in dif-
ferent directions to achieve optimum
results.
The massaging rollers 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
For this specific application, the
underarm cap 8 has been developed
as an optional attachment to be
placed on the epilation head 2.
Please be aware that especially at the
beginning these areas are particularly
sensitive to pain. Therefore, we
recommend that you select speed
setting «soft» for the first few epilation
processes. 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.
Subject to change without notice.
