Ground-breaking innovation that provides a simple solution for results that last
Flexibility and Close Contact
The Braun Silk-épil 9 Flex has been developed to enable constant contact whilst flexing to the curves of the female body. Braun partnered with Crown Office Scribe Paul Antonio to bring to life why constant contact and ease of use go hand in hand, through the art of calligraphy. Paul's work shows us the intrinsic connection between close contact, correct pressure and flexibility. For him the right technique, pressure and direction of movement are all crucial in achieving the best end results. In his calligraphy, maintaining constant contact with the surface and subtly adapting the pressure means he can be flexible within the curves he sculpts on the paper. It's why he enjoyed experimenting with the Silk-épil 9 Flex. Much like the tools he routinely use, it maintains constant contact with the surface, sits comfortably in the hand and flexes to the movement of the body.
Contours and Simplicity
The artist Alexandria Coe considers simplicity to be one of the most beautiful things in life, which is reflected in her drawing. Alexandria's work brings to life the curves and contours of the female body. Her approach to representing the female form focuses on the minimum lines needed to bring it to life, heroing simplicity over complexity. This demonstrates her knowledge of the female body and how she has mastered simplicity, both of which are qualities Braun values. Like Alexandria, Braun has long stood for the removal of the unecessary and understands that today, less matters.

Benjamin Wilson, Global Technology & Design Communications Lead: How does epilation really work?
SensoSmart™ for a more comfortable application
SensoSmart™ technology supports pressure control and ensures the device applies exactly the right pressure. The epilator can be used dry for maximum efficiency, or in the shower or bath for optimal comfort. If you find epilation uncomfortable then using it under water can help make it a more comfortable experience.
MicroGrip Tweezer Technology for longer-lasting smooth skin
The device features MicroGrip Tweezer Technology that brings you a new level of epilation precision. The tweezers catch 3x shorter hairs than wax - 0.5mm to be precise - giving you smooth skin for weeks, not days.
