Treatments work best on darker hair types, or hair that contains more melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair and skin its color, and will absorb light energy. Black and dark brown respond the best, and lighter brown hairs will also respond but typically require more treatments. Red, white, grey or blonde hairs may respond after multiple treatments with Silk’n, as they don’t respond as well to treatments as the darker hair. The Silk'n may not work for lighter hair on darker skin, and the Silk'n will not work if your skin is too dark.
You should know that the Groupon deal here gives you a 1500 pulse cartridge capacity which gives you enough to perform two full face and body treatments (you will either get one 1500 pulse cartridge or two 750 pulse cartridges in your order, for a total of 1500 pulses and a free $45 value). If you are going to only do certain areas like the legs, then you will be able to do numerous treatments before you need to purchase additional cartridges. You can purchase more 750 pulse cartridges on the web and on the Silk’n website for $35-$45 depending on deals offered and how many cartridges you purchase at once. Each 750 pulse cartridge enables you to have 1 full face & body treatment, or multiple treatments of individual areas of the body.
