Silk'n Clinical Studies

Silk’n devices have been put through their paces by our team of clinical testing experts experienced in conducting clinical testing for cosmetic devices. This clinical testing plays a key role in substantiating our product claims that you’ll see throughout the site, as well as what’s used on product packaging while also ensuring our products are safe consumer use. Product claims must be supported by data gathered during these and other medical studies. This evidence is required both for advertising authorities as well as today’s web-savvy consumers who demand hard data that the devices they are considering buying actually perform as advertised and of course are safe to use.

In this section we’re working to provide clinical papers on Silk’n hair removal, anti-aging and acne devices, conducted by experienced physicians that are highly specialized in cosmetic treatments and have a great deal of knowledge of how the various Silk’n devices work.
