Braun introduces Silk-épil 9, the new standard of epilation excellence with a wide epilation head for faster results and breakthrough MicroGrip tweezer technology.

With a 40% wider head, the new Silk-épil 9 covers more area and removes more hair in one stroke for faster epilation. The MicroGrip tweezer technology introduces Braun's most innovative tweezers with an improved geometry to increase the plucking and feeding performance and gently remove more hairs in one stroke. The combination of these two features results in faster hair removal, even on the shortest hairs (0.5mm) that wax cannot catch, for up to 4 weeks of smooth skin.

Product Features

  • Wet and Dry - Works in the bath or shower for a more comfortable epilation. Moreover, epilation is virtually painless with regular use.
  • Pulsating Vibration - Pulsating active vibrations for an extra gentle sensation.
  • Pivoting Head - The pivoting head smoothly adapts to body contours for more comfort and efficiency.
  • Smartlight - The smartlight reveals even the finest hair for extra thorough hair removal.
  • Removes More Hair in One Stroke for Up to 4 Weeks of Smooth Skin - The 40 per cent wider head ensures even more hairs are captured and removed in one stroke, while the revolutionary MicroGrip tweezer technology with wider, longer and deeper tweezers increases epilation performance – removing hair 4x shorter than wax.
  • Discover Precise Facial Epilation Too - if you want to remove hair on your chin, upper lip and forehead or maintain your eyebrows? On these most delicate areas, precision is key. The sleek and compact design of Braun face lets you handle it like mascara for absolute control and precision. It precisely removes facial hair from the root for up to 4 weeks of hair free skin. And with 200 plucking motions per second it is much more thorough and considerably faster than a manual tweezer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to use the Braun Silk-épil 9 and 7 in the shower and bath?

Braun Silk-epil 9 is 100% waterproof hence safe for in or out of the shower and bath use. The product features an automatic shut off mechanism that ensures the appliance only operates once the cord is removed from the mains power and recharger dock

Will more hair grow back if I epilate?

No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair re-growth, making them lighter, softer and fine, with a semi-permanent effect. Say goodbye to stubble that’s rough and hard and hello to 4 weeks of smoothness.

How can I avoid ingrown hairs? 

An ingrown hair has curled backwards growing towards the follicle, often creating a small bump (also known as a razor bump). Ingrown hairs are often a result of too-close shaving. To avoid ingrown hairs, try exfoliating regularly (approx. once a week) to remove dead skin cells and “clear the path” so hair grows in the direction it’s supposed to. 

How do I go about exfoliation?

You shouldn’t exfoliate intensively immediately before or after epilating as it may leave your skin feeling delicate. 

What are the benefits of the Silk-epil 9 MicroGrip tweezer technology? 

The breakthrough MicroGrip tweezer structure introduces a new wider epilation head and longer, deeper tweezers to increase the plucking efficiency and remove even the shortest hairs that usual waxing cannot catch.

A new geometry also allows for closer skin contact. These improved features combined with the 40% wider epilation head make Silk-epil 9 the fastest and most precise epilator ever designed by Braun.
