Please read the use instructions carefully
and thoroughly before using the
Braun Silk·épil SoftPerfection has been
designed to make the removal of un-
wanted hair as efficient, gentle and easy
as possible. Its proven epilation system
removes hair at the root, leaving your skin
smooth for weeks. With the innovative
tips and the unique arrangement
of tweezers it provides an extra close
epilation for perfectly smooth skin, allow-
ing to remove hairs as short as 0.5 mm
as well as flat lying hairs. As the hair that
re-grows is fine and soft, there will be no
more stubble.
The massaging rollers clip makes the
epilation ultra gentle. Its pulsating
movement stimulates and relaxes the skin
to offset the pulling sensation.
The narrow epilation head is per-
fectly suited to follow the contours of
delicate body parts such as under the
arms and the bikini lines. A reduced num-
ber of tweezers and the narrow design,
specifically adapted to these body areas,
improve the handling and ensure a partic-
ularly gentle epilation in these areas.

General information on epilation
Silk·épil is designed to epilate hair on legs,
but use tests monitored by dermatologists
have revealed that you can also epilate the
underarm and the bikini line.
All methods of hair removal at the root can
lead to in-growing 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
If, after 36 hours, the skin still shows
irritation, we recommend that you contact
your physician.
In general, the skin reaction and the sen-
sation of pain tend to diminish consider-
ably 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 epila-
tion 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 consulta-
tion 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
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
in-growing hair as the gentle scrubbing
action removes the upper skin layer and
fine hair can get through to the skin

«1» = reduced speed).
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, continuous
movement without pressure against
the hair growth, in the direction of the
switch. The SoftLift®
tips will make sure
that even flat lying hair is lifted and
removed thoroughly at the root.
As hair can grow in different directions,
it may also be helpful to guide the
appliance in different directions to
achieve optimum results.
The massaging rollers should always
be kept in contact with the skin in order
to stimulate and relax the skin for a
gentler epilation.

to the contours of these areas, it pro-
vides a gentle and thorough epilation.

more comfort, ensure that the hair is at
