Veet Infini’Silk Pro Review
So my Veet Infini’Silk has finally said goodbye (the original Veet that I bought, read on to find out more if you are already confused. Hint: Veet has two IPL machines). It was great that my first Veet Infini’Silk Light-Based Ipl Hair Removal System (read our original review here) served me and my two sisters before the pulses run out. We all had a great experience using it and we definitely love the changes to hair growth it has done for our bodies. But the treatments were not enough…..
From the UK? Buy Here
We did see significant results in reduced hair growth with what we call the ‘budget Veet machine‘, but there are still few hairs remaining. As a result, we planned to buy another home hair removal machine or device but considered the fact that it shouldn’t be disposable (hence, although the #1 on the market, we didn’t go for the Tria 4X Laser).
We wanted something that we can use over a long period of time for all of us, since three of us are using it. (Not to mention, the men in the house are also interested in using it too).
I told my sisters we had to stick with Veet products, we are essentially Veet lovers (we started using Veet wax many years ago, when we are younger and now have carried it through with the Veet permanent hair removal machines now, how times flies!). For me, I love everything about the Veet IPL machines.
Because we have already tried it already and can attest with its effectiveness with the Veet Infini’Silk, we know what we get, so why look for other brand? The only mistake we did, we should have bought this machine from the very start!
Cons: With the results itself, nothing. The only con that we can think of is that it’s not suitable to use for dark skin or on red, blonde, grey or white hair (Read Katie’s story)
It was actually the model I didn’t consider at first due to its higher price. But now, I realized it would be better if we bought this Veet Infini’Silk Pro (available here for purchase) from the start. If only I knew that my sisters will also be interested, I could have chosen this since it’s not disposable (i.e you can keep buying catridges and keep using the machine as opposed to the flashes running out and the ipl machine becoming useless).
Anyway, cutting the long story short, we finally ordered the Veet Infini’Silk Pro (we bought it online here) and excitedly opened it when it came (if you are confused already, Veet have manufactured two IPL machines, check out the differences between the Veet Infini’Silk and Veet Infini’Silk Pro)
Literally, this product has a team effort, Veet a reliable brand in hair removal already, backed up with Silk’n IPL technology and you have a blast of a permanent hair removal device – The Veet Infini’Silk Pro (featured in the pic above).
This product is only new but it is one of the best selling permanent hair removal machines on the market (and it sells out each week). It is literally selling like hot cakes and may be unexpected for the brand itself, it has been out of stock numerous times since it has been released.
What We love About Veet Infini’Silk Pro
The Pro has these features that really made me love it. I’ve explained more about these features below:
- It now has a handle meant for easy grip (a design that is completely different to the first Veet Infini’Silk and my sisters and I agree we like this design better).
- The Veet Infini’Silk Pro is super easy to use.
- It is NOT disposable – cartridge can be replaced.
- The package contains three different plugs/ adapters so pretty much anyone, anywhere in the world can use it.
- This is absolutely safe for home use since it is FDA approved.
- One of the cheapest when it comes to IPL hair removal.
- Results are better – cutting the treatments to about 50% (compared to the Infini’Silk).
I loved the Veet Infini’Silk, but I love the Pro more. The Pro is actually an upgraded model of the standard one Veet Infini’Silk (I know it can be confusing but there is actually two products) – not only on its outer features but on the results as well. It was really surprising that the outcome is even better, cutting the treatment to about 50% of the standard one.
Veet Infini’Silk Pro uses intense pulsed light technology to permanently remove hair from the different parts of the body including arms, underarms, bikini line, legs, back and chest (it is not safe to use it on your face, read more about how to remove facial hair here).
It can be used by both men and women but has some limitations with regards to skin tone and hair color (see below). Well, this is really not a big deal at all since almost all IPL treatments, including those in salons and clinics, require certain skin and hair color combination to work effectively.
It’s good that my sisters and I have light skin and dark brown to brown hair color. The device works at best with this skin type, having high contrast between skin tone and hair color. We consider this device as the best hair removal machine for both ladies and men.
This product is not disposable. Once the cartridge runs out of light pulses, an indicator light signal will start to blink. The light will eventually stop blinking and stay on when you need to replace the lamp cartridge. That is how easy it is to operate this product.
The cartridge is available for purchase here.
The Infini’Silk Pro has skin color sensor which ensures that the device can be used onto suitable skin tones only. It also has a built-in skin contact sensor which allows light to be emitted only onto the skin. Its five light energy levels will enable users to choose which specific power options will comfortably suit their pain tolerance.
Using the Veet Infini’Silk Pro
It’s a bit easier to hold this permanent hair removal device due to the presence of a handle. With regards to the procedure, same steps must be done in using it, just like what my sisters and I did with the standard machine.
1. First thing that you have to do is to shave, of course. Since we had several treatments before, shaving is really quick now. You can barely see hair on our body. If ever there is, it’s just a little portion and almost unnoticeable.
2. Next is to plug the device and press the “ON/STBY” button.
3. Once it is placed in your skin, there must be a light that will flash which simply indicates the device is safe to use.
For your first time: It is highly recommended to test what particular power level can your skin handle by doing a test patch. This means, do the procedure above on a small area of the body to see how your skin reacts. First do it on level 1 and proceed up to see how your skin reacts to the machine. You can increase as you feel comfortable.
That’s how easy it is! You just need to be cautious in using it because it must not hit the same portion more than twice in a session.
The hair removal device is not intended for everyday use. Usually, the first four treatments are two weeks apart. The next five to seven treatment is done with four weeks interval. The next treatments must be done as needed, usually four week apart, until you achieve your desired outcome (we use our treatments as a bonding session with my sisters and I but I’ve heard other people gather their friends and do it together..).
Does It Hurt?
Absolutely, NO. I have high tolerance with regards to pain but my sisters do not. At level 5, we can all handle the heat it produces. There may be some feeling of discomfort at first use, but when you get used to it, after using it several times, you will not mind it anymore (you can also apply numbing and calming creams if you feel any sensitivity).
Our search for reusable hair removal equipment at home had ended when we come across the Veet Infini’Silk Pro. It has helped me and my sisters get rid of our unwanted hair permanently all over our body.
Overall, I would grade this product: Excellent and 10/10.
We got what we paid for (get the latest price here)
The promise of permanent hair removal is really achievable after several sessions/treatments depending on your skin type and the body part the product is used.
I am personally recommending this product to my family and friends (and of course, all my followers here at LaserHairSite). I personally consider, based on my experience and my sister’s, that the Veet Infini’Silk Pro as the best hair removal machine for home use.
