first epilator with integrated blade designed
to be used in water with shave gel or foam.
Please read the use instructions carefully
before using the appliance and keep them
for future reference.
Braun Silk·épil 7 Dual Epilator has been
designed to give you longlasting smooth skin
in one stroke thanks to its dual technology.
First, it gently epilates the hair from the
root, then the integrated blade follows to
smoothen the skin.
•	 For hygienic reasons, do not share this
appliance with other persons.
•	 This appliance is provided with a special
cord set with an integrated Safety Extra
Low Voltage power supply. Do not

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.
•	 Never use the epilation head without a cap.
•	 Be careful when guiding the Smoothing
cap (2) over bony areas like the ankles.
The integrated blade is very sharp and
might cause injuries.
•	 For safety reasons, stop using the

General information
All methods of hair removal at the root
can lead to skin irritations (e.g. itching,
discomfort and reddening) 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
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,
92126888_SE_7891-7871_WE_S6-76.indd 12 29.11.11 15:42
Page: 12
during pregnancy, Raynaud’s disease,
haemophilia, candida or immune deficiency.
Some useful tips:  
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 time for your
skin to adapt to epilation. The discomfort
experienced in the beginning will decrease
considerably with repeated use as the skin
adapts to the process.
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.
Epilation is easier and more comfortable
when the hair is at the optimum length of
2-5 mm. If hairs are longer, we recommend
that you shave first and epilate the shorter,
re-growing hairs several days later.
If you have used an epilator before, keep
in mind that you do not need to go over
the same area repeatedly thanks to the
one-stroke efficiency of the Dual Epilator
technology. This will reduce the epilation
time significantly. Carefully guide the Dual
Epilator over your legs and take special care
on bony, uneven skin areas in order to avoid
injuries caused by the blade.

•	 Before use, charge the appliance. For
best performance, we recommend that
you always use a fully charged appliance.
Place the appliance (switched off) in the
charging stand or connect it directly to an
electrical outlet via the special cord set.
Charging time is approximately 1 hour.
•	 The green charging light (6a) flashes to
show that the shaver is being charged.
When the battery is fully charged, the
charging light shines permanently. Once
fully charged, use the appliance without
•	 A full charge provides up to 30 minutes
of effective usage time.
•	 When the red low-charge light (6b)
flashes, reconnect the appliance to an
electrical outlet to recharge.
•	 After each use, recharge the appliance
either directly via the special cord set or by
placing it onto the charging stand.
•	 The best environmental temperature for
charging, using and storing the appliance
is between 15 °C and 35 °C. In case the
temperature is beyond this range, the
charging time might be longer whereas the
cordless operation time might be reduced.
Turning on
•	 Press one of the lock keys (5a) and turn
the switch clockwise to select your
preferred speed setting:

«I»  = extra gentle
«II» = extra efficient
•	 The SmartLight comes on instantly
and shines as long as the appliance is
switched on. It reproduces an almost
daylight condition, thus revealing even the
finest hair and giving you a better control
for improved epilation efficiency.
Wet usage
The Dual Epilator has been designed for wet
usage with shave gel or foam.
In order to achieve optimum gliding condi-
tions use the appliance on wet skin using
shave gel.
For optimum results, we recommend using
Gillette Satin Care* shave gel.
For improved handling under wet conditions,
you may want to attach the non-slip grip (7).
(* not available in every country)
A 	Dual Epilation with the
Smoothing cap
Hair removal with the Silk·épil 7 Dual Epilator
is a completely new approach to remove hair.
In one stroke it first gently removes the hair
from the root, followed by the blade to
smoothen the skin. The unique Dual Epilator
combines Close-Grip Technology (incl.
40 tweezers) for long-lasting results with
integrated Venus Technology for one stroke
Dual epilation with the Smoothing cap has
been designed and optimized for usage on
legs. If you want to use the Smoothing cap
for hair removal in other body areas, please
take extra care because of the sharp blades.
Skin needs to be stretched during usage.
Start-up phase
In order to allow your skin to adapt to
the new hair removal process, it is most
important that you use the appliance once a
week during the first month of usage. After
3-4 usages, with every hair being epilated
once and the hair re-growth adapted to the
new process, you will be able to enjoy long-
lasting results as with normal epilation, using
the dual epilator every 2-3 weeks.
How to use the Dual Epilator
•	 Before use, make sure that Epilation head
(3) is clean. Attach the Smoothing cap (2).
•	 Apply shave foam or gel on the wet skin.
•	 Stretching your skin, guide the appliance
in a slow, continuous movement without
pressure against the hair growth in the
direction of the switch.
•	 Make sure that the head is guided flat over
the skin. Its pivoting head perfectly adapts
to the skin contours. It first epilates and
then smoothens your skin in one stroke.
Thanks to the integrated blade, the
Smoothing cap provides increased
efficiency. You do not need to go several
times over the same area.
•	 Guide the dual epilator starting from the
lower leg in an upward direction. Keep
your leg stretched out straight when
removing hair in the area behind the knee.
Take special care to avoid injuries around
the ankles and on other bony areas.
•	 From time to time, rinse off the foam built
up on the Smoothing cap.
B	 Epilation
Remove the Smoothing cap (2) and attach
the Epilation cap (11) or the cap for sensitive
areas (12). You may epilate under wet or dry
Wet usage: 	To achieve best gliding
conditions, make sure the skin
is very moist.
Dry usage: 	 Make sure your skin is dry and
free from grease and cream.
92126888_SE_7891-7871_WE_S6-76.indd 14 29.11.11 15:42
Page: 14
Leg epilation:
•	 Stretching your skin, guide the appliance
in a slow, continuous movement without
pressure against the hair growth in the
direction of the switch.
•	 As hair grows in different directions, it
may be helpful to guide the appliance in
different directions to achieve best results.
Epilation in sensitive areas:
•	 For underarm and bikini line epilation,
attach the Epilation cap (12) which has
been specifically developed for use in
sensitive areas.
•	 Before epilating, thoroughly clean the
respective area to remove residues (like
deodorant). 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 epila-
tion, avoid using irritating substances
such as deodorants with alcohol.
•	 Please be aware that especially in the
beginning, these areas are particularly
sensitive to pain. Therefore, we recom-
mend that you select speed setting «I» for
the first few usages.
With repeated usage the pain sensation
will diminish. For more comfort, ensure
that the hair is at the optimum length of
2-5 mm.
Overheating protection
As a safety feature to avoid the unlikely
event of the appliance overheating, it may
happen that the red low charge light shines
permanently for 8 seconds and then the
appliance turns off automatically. In this
case, turn the switch back to the position «0»
and let the appliance cool down.
Keeping the appliance in top
Cleaning with water
After each wet usage, thoroughly clean the
appliance with water to ensure optimum
Remove the Smoothing cap (2) and clean it
under warm running water.
Hold the appliance with the epilation head
under running water and briefly switch it on.
Then press the release button (10) to remove
the epilation head.
Thoroughly shake both, the epilation head
and the appliance to make sure that
remaining water can drip out. Remove the
non-slip grip and leave all parts to dry.
Before reattaching, make sure all parts are
completely dry.
After reassembling the epilation head and
the Smoothing cap (2), you may attach the
protection cap (1) to protect the blade.
Cleaning with the brush
If you have used the appliance in dry
conditions, it may be sufficient to clean it
with the brush.
Thoroughly clean the tweezers from the rear
side of the Epilation head with the brush
dipped into alcohol. While doing so, turn the
tweezer element manually. This cleaning
method ensures best hygienic conditions for
the epilation head.
Replacing the Smoothing cap  
The Smoothing cap (2) is provided with a
lubrastrip (2b). It turns white over time,
which acts as an indicator when the blade is
becoming dull. This indicates that it is time to
change the Smoothing cap. As the lubrastrip
is water soluble the Smoothing cap should
be stored in a dry environment and should
never be left in the sink, face down.
92126888_SE_7891-7871_WE_S6-76.indd 15 29.11.11 15:42
Page: 15
To ensure maximum performance, replace
the Smoothing cap after 12 usages, when
the lubrastrip turns white or when the blade
shows wear or kinks. For safety reasons,
stop using the smoothing cap if it has been
dropped and replace it with a new one.
