Discover a Lifetime of Smooth, Hair-Free Skin with BellaFlash!
Tired of razor burns, nicks, ingrown hairs, and irritated skin? BellaFlash by Silk'n brings professional hair removal results to the comfort of your home with revolutionary and award-winning Home Pulsed Light™ (HPL). This is the same light technology physicians use, to remove hair effectively over a wide range of skin tones and hair colors, without the inconvenience of travelling to the doctor's office or the expense of follow up appointments.
The BellaFlash can be used for larger areas such as legs and arms, or smaller, more delicate areas like the upper lip, underarms, or bikini line safely, effectively and painlessly. The built-in Skin Tone Sensor checks your skin before each pulse and only allows a pulse to be emitted on suitable skin tones. *

"After supporting the development of leading professional IPL and laser systems for hair removal, and using them in my clinic for many years, I introduced HPL technology to my patients. After 4 to 6 treatments with the device they were extremely satisfied to see dramatic hair reduction." – Dr. S. Mulholland
Top dermatologists and plastic surgeons have tested the BellaFlash and concluded it can be used safely, easily, and effectively in a typical home environment. It’s easy to set up and self-treatments are simple, quick, and clean. Best of all, results come with minimal discomfort compared to waxing or other laser treatments.
Your first 4 sessions should be 2 weeks apart. On average, results will start to show after 3-4 sessions. What you will see are "bald patches" in the areas you've treated. At this point, you can start treating once a month or if you see more bald spots than hair, you can start 'spot treating' the patches of hair that are surfacing.
The hair in our body goes through three phases; 2 are dormant and the hair is resting (Catagen and Telogen) and only during 1 phase is the hair actively growing (Anagen). It varies with each individual and each body part but it could take 18-24 months for hairs to go through the cycle. During this time multiple sessions may be required in order to achieve permanent hair removal. The efficiency of hair removal varies for each individual based on body area, skin tone, hair color and usage. Once you are spot treating, you will find that you can go for months without having to do a treatment and then suddenly a patch of hair will grow, at which point you shave & treat the area.
Tips for a Successful Treatment Session
Follow these easy steps to achieve hair-free results with BellaFlash:
Women will generally need six to eight treatment sessions for permanent hair removal.
Men will generally need an average of eight to ten treatment sessions.
Keep in mind that areas such as face or bikini line are tougher to treat and may require a few extra sessions.
Make sure to get a close shave before each treatment - no more waxing, plucking or tweezing which removes the root of the hair, leaving nothing for HPL to target.
Who is a Candidate?
Please Note: Avoid using on naturally dark skin complexions or recently tanned skin.
BellaFlash uses a light-based technology called HPLTM and it works by converting the flash emitted in to heat. This heat looks for the first instance of pigment (color) to direct this heat energy to. Since it cannot differentiate between skin pigmentation or hair pigmentation - if the skin is dark, the flash may immediately be drawn to it and may result in adverse reactions. For this same reason, users with lighter hair colors (white/blonde, grey, light red) in the area they wish to treat may not see results as the light is not able to detect any pigment in their hair, making the treatments ineffective.
BellaFlash™ is not designed for everyone. Please read all safety precautions and how to plan for best results in the instruction manual before using your BellaFlash.
Included in your BellaFlash box:
1 pre-installed lamp cartridge with virtually a lifetime of use!

BellaFlash Frequently Asked Questions
I just got my BellaFlash, how do I turn it on?
First you must insert the power cord and then the power button on the BellaFlash will emit a green light when you are connected to the power source. Press the power button to begin your session, you will hear a beep and now you are ready to begin your treatments.
Does it really work?
Yes; in clinical trials held by physicians, the BellaFlash was proven to safely achieve excellent long term hair removal results. BellaFlash by Silk'n has been cleared by the FDA for the removal of unwanted hair. In addition, BellaFlash is not required by the FDA to be used with other products such as cooling gels or protective eyewear.

What is HPL technology and how does it work?
BellaFlash by Silk’n uses Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair from the body. HPL is very similar to the technology used in professional laser clinics, using light-based treatments to stop hair growth directly at the follicle, and produces the same great results without the pain and expense of visiting a physician’s office.
During treatments, the BellaFlash emits a pulse of energy (HPL) which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft or follicle. Hairs that are in the Anagen (“active”) growth cycle are targeted by the energy and disabled over a series of treatment sessions, preventing future growth. Multiple treatment sessions are required as some hairs may be in the Catagen or Telogen (“resting”) phases of the hair growth cycle and so will not be immediately affected by the HPL treatments.
Please watch the Introduction Video at the top of this page at 0:46 to learn more about how HPL works.
I have fair skin, why is the skin sensor warning light on?
Sometimes the skin sensor can be affected by the room in which you are treating. Treatments in a dark room or a room with a bright light (such as lamps and vanities) can cause the warning light to turn on. This is a result of a shadow being cast on your skin, making it appear darker than it really is. To prevent this from happening, treat in moderate lighting. If you continue to have a problem, make sure the sensor (located beside the yellow applicator light) is flush against the skin.
If neither of these solutions resolves the issue, please call our Customer Support Team at 1-877-367-4556.
Can BellaFlash be used by males?
Yes, BellaFlash may be used by men, although hairs on men - especially those on the chest - will require more treatments than those of women to get the desired results.
If the desired treatment area is the face/cheekbones, please note that the end result will be a smooth, hair-free cheek and that hair will not grow again in the future. BellaFlash should not be used to achieve a "rugged" look with stubble or if you may want to grow a beard or other facial hair at a later date.
How can I maximize my treatment results?
1. Start with clean, shaven skin - NO waxing, plucking, or tweezing!
2. Progress quickly to high energy levels - once you have tested all treatment areas on the low energy setting, we recommend you move up to higher levels.
3. Schedule your treatments in two-week intervals. Typically you will see results after the 3rd or 4th treatment, and after this, you can start treating monthly.
How long does a treatment session take?
The time can vary depending on the area of the body being treated. Two full legs take less than 30 minutes or two underarms could take just under a minute. Since the device does not require batteries, it can be used for any length of time. You should never feel rushed to complete a full treatment of the desired area.
Should I do anything before my treatments?
Before any BellaFlash treatment, it is important to avoid sun exposure on the treated area for at least four weeks. A high level UV sunscreen (SPF 50+) will help, as will clothing covering the treated area. The area to be treated should also be cleaned with mild soap and water, and the hairs shaved down to skin level. Cosmetic trimming scissors may also be used if shaving is not possilbe in the desired treatment area but be sure to trim the hairs as close as possible to the skin for best results.
When will I see results from my BellaFlash?
As with any light-based or laser hair removal device, results are not immediate. In fact you may not think anything happened all. Most users see noticeable reduction after 4 treatments. Each time you treat, you should increase the energy level. It is important to be patient and consistent during your hair removal process as hair may sometimes appear to be growing back after a treatment, but typically after two weeks, many of these hairs will simply fallout.
It is also important to understand the hair growth cycle. Hair grows in three different stages and only hairs in an active growth stage will be affected by a BellaFlash treatment. This is one of the main reasons that multiple treatments are required to achieve the desired result.
Why is my hair growing, even though I treated it a week ago?
It is quite common for hair to appear as if it is still growing up to two weeks after a treatment with BellaFlash. This process is known as “ejection” and at around two weeks, you’ll see that these hairs simply fall out or slide out with a slight tug (we don’t recommend pulling on the hairs – just let them come out naturally). It is also possible that some hairs, due to missed treatment or different stages of growth, were not affected by the BellaFlash treatment. These hairs will be treated in follow-up sessions, hence the need for multiple treatments in order to get the best results.
Is it true that some hairs grow back lighter and finer after light treatment?
This phenomenon is well documented among aestheticians and doctors using light and laser devices for hair removal. It is possible that some hairs will grow back lighter and finer after treatment. Usually, these hairs are a fraction of what was originally there, and continued treatment may have a desirable effect on them.
Are there side effects from using BellaFlash?
When used properly, most users of BellaFlash report feeling a slight sensation of heat when the pulse of light is emitted. Side effects and complications, while possible, are not common if BellaFlash is used according to the instructions and precautions included with the device. Please read these instructions before beginning treatment. In clinical studies, a small fraction of users reported some sensation of heat, redness around the hair shaft, and slight swelling. These conditions usually subsided within an hour after treatment. For more information on side effects and how to avoid them, please read the BellaFlash instruction manual.
Why can’t I treat myself if I have an “active” suntan?
Do not use the BellaFlash on tanned skin or after sun exposure! Tanned skin, particularly following sun exposure, contains large quantities of the pigment melanin. This applies to all skin types and complexions, including those who don’t seem to tan quickly. The presence of large quantities of melanin exposes the skin to higher risk of adverse effects when using BellaFlash or any other energy based treatment, including burns, blisters, and skin color changes (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation).
How long should I wait to treat with BellaFlash after unprotected exposure to the sun?
As noted in the manual, one should wait 4 weeks before treating with BellaFlash after unprotected exposure to the sun. However, if there is ever any uncertainty about sun exposure, please contact our Customer Support Team at 1-877-367-4556.
Is long-term use of BellaFlash dangerous for my skin?
The use of light and laser energy in aesthetic medicine has been well documented for over 15 years in professional peer-reviewed journals, and by well-respected institutions like the Mayo Clinic. These journals and institutions have not reported any side effects or damage from long-term use of light and laser device.
Do I need refills/replacement cartridges? Why are they not for sale?
The BellaFlash comes equipped with enough flashes for virtually a lifetime of use. It is enough to treat the entire body from start to finish. This means that a single user could be completely hair-free on their full legs, arms, face, underarms, bikini line, chest and back and still have leftover flashes!
Additional cartridges may become available in the future for those who are sharing their BellaFlash device and are therefore using more flashes. Please call our Customer Support Line at 1.877.367.4556 for the most up to date information.
