A Braun shaver foil and cutter should last up to 18 months, depending on: your shaving method, your beard type, good cleaning, and maintenance of the foil/cutter cassette.
Generally, the battery in a Braun shaver should last between 3 to 5 years if you use and care for the shaver properly.
We recommend that any battery replacement be performed at one of our Authorized Service Centers to ensure that your shaver is returned to its optimal shaving performance by a qualified technician. Visit www.service.braun.com to find details of your closest Braun Authorized Service Center.
All Braun shavers are watertight which means the shaver head can be rinsed under running water for easy cleaning. However, ONLY Braun shavers that are specifically designated as Wet & Dry (W&D) models can be used in the shower or bath. The Wet & Dry models have an automatic shut-off mechanism to ensure the appliance works only when the cord is not plugged in, meaning there is no risk of electric shock. Seeing is believing right? Check out this video to see how seriously our engineers take their testing! VIDEO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WUVb2DkDk8
• “cc” models indicate that the shaver comes with a Clean & Charge station. • “s” or solo models indicate the shaver comes with a charger only and does not include the Clean & Charge station. • “Wet & Dry” is indicated on some models and it means the shaver can be used in the shower. • "cs" models indicate that the shaver comes with a charging stand.
Here are some simple steps on how to use Braun Silk-expert Pro: Step 1: Remove all visible hair in the area you wish to treat with your preferred hair removal method. If desired, the Braun Silk-expert Pro includes a Venus razor for easy surface hair removal. Ensure there is no hair remaining above the surface of the skin. Then pat your skin dry. Step 2: select the standard head or the precision head depending on the size of the area you wish to treat. Plug in the Braun Silk-expert Pro. Step 3: Put the nozzle in full contact with the skin to make sure the product works correctly. If the light flashes white, a valid skin tone is detected. If not in proper contact with the skin, the device will not flash. In the case of a red light, there is not full contact or it is an invalid skin tone. Step 4: For larger body areas use gliding mode: hold down the treatment button and glide along your skin. For smaller areas, press and release the treatment button. For sensitive areas or if it’s your first time, you can use the gentle or extra gentle mode. Step 5: It is important to wipe clean the nozzle after every use. Step 6: In the first phase of your treatment, treat once a week for 4 - 12 weeks. Then adjust to your needs (i.e. every 1-2 months).
IPL is not suitable for everyone. It is most effective on light to medium skin tones with hair ranging from natural blonde to dark brown or black. The device is not effective on very blonde, red, grey, or white hair where the smaller amount of melanin would not absorb the light energy. Here is a chart to help with skin tones and body hair type:
If your skin tone got darker due to artificial or natural tanning and your skin does not suffer from any irritation, the Braun Silk-expert Pro device can be used as it will automatically adjust the energy level to the safest and most efficient level, and will also tell you should your skin have become too dark for treatment.
Men can use the Braun Silk-expert Pro IPL from the shoulders down (chest, back, arms, stomach, legs). It should not be used on the face, neck, or genital area. Use on male beards or facial hair may lead to uneven results.
IPL is safe for use on the bikini line, but it isn’t suitable for the genital area where the skin may have a darker color and where there is a greater hair density, which would absorb more light energy and may cause discomfort.
Braun Silk-expert Pro is safe for use on the face below the cheekbones. It shouldn’t be used near the eyes and along the forehead. It works effectively on the upper lip, chin, and jawline. We recommend doing a patch test before use.
We recommend a start-up phase of 4-12 weekly treatments to achieve optimum results. If you no longer see hair growing, you do not need to complete the full 12 weekly treatments. You can switch to maintenance treatments. The typical hair growth cycle varies between individuals and could take up to 18-24 months, depending on body area (underarm, lower leg and bikini area can take the most time). Since only hairs in their growing phase are susceptible to treatment with light, it is important to do multiple treatments to achieve continuously smooth skin.
We recommend avoiding exposure to artificial light sources, such as tanning booths or solariums. Avoid any activity or skin products that may irritate your skin for 24 hours after treatment. This includes using hot tubs or saunas, wearing tight- fitting clothing, using bleaching creams, perfumed products or peeling products.
After treatment, we recommend using sunscreen SPF 15 whenever treated areas may be exposed to the sun.
Braun Silk-expert Pro works without the need of additional lotions or gels and there is no need to purchase replacement lamps.
The Silk-expert Pro is perfectly safe. There is no need to wear goggles when using the device. The skin contact sensors ensure that the device can only be triggered when in contact with the skin.
The Braun Clean & Renew container (cartridge) is not recyclable; it can be placed out for regular garbage/rubbish pick-up. The cleaning fluid is safe for the environment when disposed of.

The Braun Skin iExpert IPL connects to the iExpert app via Bluetooth/Wi-Fi technology. Once connected, the app guides you step by step through the hair removal process, including assessing your hair and skin needs, so that you can achieve up to 1 year of smooth skin.Key Benefits: • Smart-head recognition guides you along the way to ensure best results and provide real-time coverage tracking and feedback. • The IPL recognizes your skin tone and automatically optimizes the power to strike the right balance between effective and safe treatment. • It creates a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs. • You can schedule reminders, so you don't miss a session.
No, the app does not change any settings for the device. However, you can view the settings information from the app. Device settings must be adjusted on the IPL device itself.
The app provides you with a percentage for each session. This percent measures how many flashes were used during the session versus how many were possible based on the settings selected and how well the device covered the treatment area. If the percent is less than 100%, it does not mean the session was unsuccessful. It simply means there is opportunity to improve the coverage during your next session.
To achieve a higher percentage in your next session, we recommend moving the IPL device slower across the treatment area than in the previous session.
CAUTION: Do not immediately repeat a session on the same treatment area outside of the recommended schedule. It is important to follow usage instructions per the user manual.
Yes, if you miss a session, the app will ask whether you completed the session with the device only (i.e., without using the app). If you answer NO, then the app will automatically reprogram the whole plan adding sessions and indicating the new plan dates.
Yes, that is correct. If you want to change modes, you'll do that from the IPL device.
No, it does not.
You should get a reminder of the scheduled sessions from the app. If the reminder did not appear on mobile device, please check mobile/smart phone settings to allow reminders to pop up.
Yes, you may want to use IPL-glide mode in both directions to speed up the process if the device is not going over the same area. Use of the glide mode will not impact the IPL coverage and results.
We recommend you make sure the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth is turned on before starting a session. The app will show a warning message if there is a connectivity issue. If Bluetooth/Wi-Fi is off, that could have an impact on the correct progress indication.
You can schedule as many sessions as you want per day, if each session is for a different area of the body. We do not recommend treating the same area multiple times per day.
The IPL app will help you set up a plan for each body part you want to treat. With each session you complete, the app will update your progress and adjust the plan as needed to help you achieve smooth skin.
You may finish a session before the schedule time on the app. It does not mean the session was unsuccessful. With each session you complete, the app will update your progress and adjust the plan as needed to help you achieve smooth skin.

IPL, (Intense Pulsed Light) is a broadband pulsed light source that emits gentle pulses of light for the treatment of unwanted hair. The energy of the light and the color of your hairs and skin are all determining factors in defining how effective the IPL treatment will be. The best results are achieved on people with dark hair and fair skin, but the frequency of usage can vary between body areas and depends on your personal skin and hair conditions.
IPL only works on hair in its growing phase and regular sessions are required to achieve the desired results. The Braun IPL system provides you with a personalized plan that can forecast the best treatment schedule for you and to update the plan based off your progress. This way, you know you can achieve visible smooth skin as quickly as possible for your unique skin tone.
The skin surface needs to be hair free to make sure you avoid any discomfort during the IPL treatment because the light is targeting the hair on skin surface too which could cause some discomfort.
IPL won’t damage your skin when used appropriately, even on sensitive areas! Braun IPLs use SensoAdapt technology that automatically and continuously adjusts the flash power to your skin tone. It won’t flash if the skin tone is not suitable for IPL.
For Women: Yes, the Braun IPL is clinically proven safe to use in intimate areas. Additionally, Braun IPL is equipped with skin tone sensors which continuously reads your skin tone (80x per second) and automatically adjusts the light energy with every flash to the optimal level.
For Men: No, the Braun IPL should not be used in intimate areas.
For Women: The Braun IPL can be used on the face, below the cheekbones. It should never be used near the eyes and eyebrows. It can be used on the upper lip, chin, and jawline.
For Men: The Braun IPL should not be used on the face or neck. Using it on beards or facial hair may lead to uneven results.
Yes. There is nothing that would prevent Braun's IPL to be used by another person. However, if you plan to use the app, just know that as the treatment plans are uniquely tailored to an individual, the collected usage data may be incorrectly influenced if the device is shared across multiple users. At this time, there is no option to set up multiple users within the app.
Yes, Braun IPL devices have been built with your safety in mind. The skin contact sensors ensure that the device can only be triggered when in contact with the skin and the light you see that is visible during treatment is perfectly safe. There is no need to wear eye protection when using Braun IPL, but some people prefer to wear sunglasses during their treatments.
Men can use Braun IPL on chest, back, arms, stomach, and legs. It should not be used on the face, neck, or genital area. Use on beards or facial hair may lead to uneven results. It should not be used by pregnant women or teenagers as it has not been tested among these groups.
If your skin tone gets darker due to artificial or natural tanning and there is no skin irritation, then you can use Braun IPL! It will automatically adjust the energy level to suit your skin tone. It will also tell you if your skin has become too dark for IPL.
For 24 hours after IPL treatment, we recommend avoiding exposure to artificial light sources (tanning booth, solarium) and activities or skin products that may irritate your skin. Use sunscreen SPF15 when treated areas may be exposed to sun.
We recommend avoiding exposure to artificial light sources, such as tanning booths or solariums immediately after treatment. Avoid any activity or skin products that may irritate your skin for 24 hours after treatment. This includes using hot tubs or saunas, wearing tight-fitting clothing, using bleaching creams, perfumed products or peeling products. The above may cause irritation, such as itching and redness, in the treated areas.
You'll start to see results in as soon as 3 weeks; however, we recommend weekly treatments for 12 weeks to achieve optimal results. Once you've completed the 12 weeks, we recommend monthly maintenance treatments.
