About the Brand

Everybody knows Braun and Braun knows everybody. These guys are industry leaders in small home appliances and specifically create their products to be technologically advanced but still affordable.

When we found out they’d created a permanent results IPL device – well, we were pretty excited.

Curved and comfortable to hold, Braun’s new IPL Body and Face system is faster and better than ever.

What makes it different from its competitors and predecessors?

Permanent: This Braun IPL device claims to give permanent results but they’re very careful about how they word this. What they really say is, ‘permanent visible results’.

What does this mean?

It means that within just 4 weeks, hair will be so dramatically reduced that no one will be able to see the little growth there still is. With continued maintenance treatments every month or two, treated areas will be utterly hair free.

What if you stop using it: Braun says it delivers permanent visible hair removal and so, if you stop after the recommended treatments, you will no longer have visible hair in treated areas.

Super Fast Treatments: While the Philips Lumea claims a full leg can be done in 15 minutes, the Braun BD5009 can complete a leg in just 8 minutes.

Safety First: With Braun’s Intelligent SenseoAdapt, this Silk-Expert doesn’t just take a skin colour reading when you turn it on, it takes one after every flash.

Why is that awesome?

Because we often have uneven skin tone or tanned areas that effect the safety and efficacy of the device. By taking continuous readings, the IPL machine can change its intensity settings for perfect effect on different skin areas.

Flexible use: You can use this Braun BD5009 anywhere on your body and face. That means one device for everything! And the best part…

Years of use: This device will between 6 and 15 years depending on how much you use it.

How does it work?

IPL works by destroying the hair follicle under the skin using intense light. However, not all hair follicles are active at once, and it only works on active follicles.

This is why you need to do weekly treatments for the first 4-12 weeks. To catch all the follicles in their active stage!

Get a Free Sonic SkinSpa Exfoliator

This Braun comes with a free Sonic SkinSpa Exfoliator, which is pricey by itself, making it a total bargain with this IPL device.

With massaging vibrations, dead skin is removed quickly and easily. This improves the health and look of skin as well as preparing it in the best possible way for an IPL treatment.
