What is it?
Using the latest in design technology, the Silk’n Jewel 250K has an entirely different design to competitor HPL permanent hair laser removal products on the market today. Using only one button to switch the device on and off and to change the power level, means your home hair removal sessions can now be done in a blink of an eye!
The patented Touch & Glide Technology allows for an automated process. By simply putting the tip of the device in contact with your skin, the Silk’n Jewel 250K automatically emits a light pulse. By lifting the device, the light pulse stops emitting allowing you complete control of your treatment at all times.
Thanks to the versatility of the design, one can choose to focus on a small area by moving the device from one spot to the next (Touch Technology), or alternatively on a larger area by allowing the device to glide (Glide Technology).
And given that Silk’n uses HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light) technology means that you can be guaranteed of getting the most advanced and safe method of in-home hair removal compared to permanent hair laser removal methods used in salons. All in the privacy of your own home!
As HPL technology uses much less energy with high peak power and very short pulse duration as compared with hair laser or IPL means that this form of hair removal treatment is painless, less harmful, and does not require the application of any cooling gels, meaning that the Silk’n Jewel 250K will leave you feeling silky smooth and soft all over!
Who can use it?
The Silk’n Jewel 250K is suitable for use by both men and women thanks to the patented ‘Touch & Glide’ Technology and one button automated process. This allows people with darker skin tones to use the hair removal device safely and painlessly in the comfort of their own home and with no risk or harmful complications.
With the addition of the Skin Colour Sensor, the Jewel 250K is able to ensure complete safety at all times. However, for good results and for your own safety, it is always important to read the instructions for optimal use.

Skin Colour Sensor to Protect Your Skin
Using the latest in HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light) technology, safety comes first with the Silk'n Jewel 250K. As our skin tones vary through pigmentation and tanning, the Jewel has a built-in Skin Colour Sensor that measures complexion and skin tones by preventing the device from emitting a light pulse at higher power levels. By switching to a lower setting, you can continue your at home hair removal session, reducing the risk of potential complications.
In addition, the Silk’n Jewel has a safety mechanism that automatically protects your eyes. The device will only emit a light flash if it's applicator is in direct contact with your skin, not when it is aimed in the air.
Before and after
Get an in-depth look into the Silk’n Jewel hair removal device by reading through our frequently asked questions.
Yes, this product will give you the same results you would get from a professional device. In physician-led clinical trials, the Silk’n Jewel demonstrated excellent hair removal results. The Silk’n Jewel, like all of Silkn’s hair removal devices, is FDA cleared and Health Canada approved for removing unwanted hair in men and women. The FDA does not require any other products or accessories to be used in conjunction with the Silk’n Jewel to achieve desired results.
The amount of time for each hair removal session will differ depending on which part of the body you are treating. But, the Silk’n Jewel does not require batteries, so it can be used for any amount of time. Don’t feel rushed to treat your desired area – take the time you need.
As with all our Silk’n hair removal devices, you should space your treatments two weeks apart for the first three to four sessions you use it. From there, you should resume treatment if hair has grown back and continue to treat until you achieve your desired result. Each person will have a different total number of sessions, but most individuals will notice results after four treatments. After six treatments, most people notice excellent results. Typically, a woman will require eight full sessions in total, while men may require 10 to 12, because their hair is often more deeply rooted and stubborn.
For a detailed look at the Silk’n Jewel hair removal device schedule, see our How to Use page.
In order for our HPL treatment to work effectively, you must remove hair from the surface of your skin before you start your Silk’n Jewel hair removal treatment – while still keeping the root of the hair intact.
That’s why we recommend shaving the hair, never waxing or tweezing it, or using depilatory hair-removal creams. These products remove the hair follicle, which can compromise your final results. If you have been waxing, plucking or using depilatory creams, give your hair two weeks to grow before you shave the treatment area and begin using your Silk’n Jewel hair removal device.
If you don’t shave the hair before you begin treatment with your Silk’n Jewel, the device will only remove the hair from the surface of your skin and not have a chance to reach the follicle. This may not lead to desired results. So, we always recommend using the Silk’n Jewel on freshly shaven skin. If you don’t feel comfortable shaving certain areas of your body (such as your face or other sensitive areas) we recommend clipping or trimming the hair as close to the skin as possible to prepare it for treatment. To do this, you can try using cosmetic scissors or an electric trimmer.
Like most at-home light-based or laser hair removal product, results won’t be immediate. In fact, it may not look like anything has even happened! But, be patient. After about four treatments (or two months) most users begin to see noticeable reduction in unwanted hair. Also be sure to treat consistently. Every time you start a new treatment, you will notice an increase in the device’s energy level.
During the hair removal process, it may look like new hair is growing – but many of these will fall out after two weeks. The hair grows naturally in three stages, and the Silk’n Jewel only treats hairs that are in the active growth stage of their cycle. This is why multiple treatments are needed to achieve hair removal.
1. Make sure your skin is clean and freshly shaven. Please do not wax or pluck the hairs in your treatment area prior to treatment.
2. Use the low energy setting to test each area of your body that you wish to treat. Once you’ve done this, move progressively to the highest energy setting that is safe for you and feels comfortable for your skin.
3. Maintain a regular, consistent treatment schedule to ensure you are catching all the hairs in the active growth cycle phase as they emerge. Usually, individuals see results after three or four treatments. After this, you can begin to treat on a monthly basis, and eventually, as needed for maintenance.

No. We recommend you let your hairs naturally fall out on their, which should begin to happen gradually after about two weeks of treatments. Feel free to shave your hair as much as desired in between treatments.
Yes. All of Silkn’s hair removal devices are safe to use on the face, but only below the cheekbones. We do not recommend you use the Silk’n Jewel on your eyebrows or hairline. But you can feel confident using it to safely remove hair from your upper lip!
The Silk’n Jewel also provides effective hair removal results for other sensitive areas on your face (below your cheekbones), including cheeks, sideburns, chin/jawline, and neck areas. The Silk’n Jewel is also safe to use for removing back hair and bikini line hair, always being sure to follow all directions.
We remind all our users to read the device manual before using your Silk’n Jewel. This will help you familiarize yourself with the treatments and technology.
Please avoid using the device directly on your lips. The colour here is darker than the surrounding skin, which will attract more light and potentially cause unwanted side effects on your lips. For your safety, when treating this area, we recommend rolling your lips inward, or using white tape or a white cloth to cover them. This will help prevent accidental light flashes on the lips.
Many physicians and aestheticians who use light or laser devices for hair removal have encountered the phenomenon of a patient’s or client’s hair growing back lighter and finer following treatment. This is also possible with the Silk’n Jewel, but we have found, if this does occur, the hair is often just a fraction of the original amount and continuing treatment may give you the results you desire.
Silk’n hair removal devices use home pulsed light (HPL) technology, where a flash of light targets hair’s pigment and is then transformed into heat, which then destroys the follicle at its root. This light cannot tell the difference between skin and hair pigment. So, if you have dark skin, instead of being drawn to the hair, the flash of light may be drawn to your skin, which may result in adverse reactions.
To find out what level of energy is appropriate for your skin type, take a look at the Fitzpatrick scale found on our How it Works page.
Even if your type of skin fits within the safe range, we still recommend you use your hair removal device with caution. Start with a test flash on each area of skin you plan to treat, at each energy level. Then, wait 24 to 48 hours, and if there is no reaction, you can feel confident going ahead with full treatment at this area. Do this same sequence of testing and waiting, at each energy level, for each area of your body.
Of note, during the summer season, individuals of all skin types should carefully protect their treatment areas from the sun. Use sun block or cover up the areas you are treating so your skin does not darken.
Some individuals take a break from hair removal treatment during summer because their skin darkens from the sun’s rays.
Your Silk’n Jewel device manual will have more details on how both sun tanning and artificial tanning may affect your hair removal treatment.
Like all of Silkn’s HPL hair removal devices, the Silk’n Jewel is highly effective at removing both women’s and men’s hair. We do remind our users that men’s facial hair can be hard to treat, and using the Silk’n Jewel or other HPPL-based devices may not achieve the look desired. Treatment may result in an unnaturally smooth look on the face, instead of the desired “freshly shaven” look. But, we have found using the Silk’n Jewel to remove neck and back hair from men has been highly successful. Of note, face and chest hairs require a greater number of treatments in men than women for desired results.
We don’t recommend individuals under the age of 16 use the Silk’n Jewel, or any of our HPL hair removal devices. The body undergoes a number of hormonal changes during adolescence, so treatments may be less effective at this time. There is no maximum age for adults who want to use the Silk’n Jewel, but treatments tend to have less of an effect on grey hairs.
The Silk’n Jewel should not be used on tattooed skin, or on top of raised moles, freckles or beauty marks. To avoid these areas, we recommend placing white surgical tape or a white cloth over them while treating the area to help prevent accidental flashes. Please read through your Silk’n Jewel user manual for a complete list of safety recommendations for your device, or get in touch with us for support.
