The Veet Infini’Silk Pro IPL Hair Removal System is a light-based hair removal product that is designed to deliver affordable permanent hair removal at a fraction of the cost of professional or salon-based permanent hair removal.
The Veet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System gets rid of unwanted hair on numerous locations of the body for smooth skin and long-lasting results, with no waxing or depilatories. The device uses the same technology used in dermatology clinics and salons, but users can enjoy treatments in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. Its quiet operation, much like that of a laptop computer fan, allows users to watch television or listen to music while employing it.
The Veet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System is FDA-cleared and has many safety features. It is recommended for use with darker hair on lighter skin and can tackle difficult growth areas well. The unit is long-lasting, and its corded use is lauded by users who prefer not to have to recharge their hair removal devices frequently. The Veet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System is sold with a power adapter, in addition to travel adapters for use in many foreign countries. One light cartridge is included with purchase, as is the user’s manual.
With a large, rectangular lamp surface and a unit that is comfortable to hold and manipulate over large areas of skin, The Veet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System is easy to use thoroughly and accurately. Many users see results after four or five sessions, and most people see permanent hair loss by ten treatments. Five energy levels permit users to adjust the level of light intensity for maximum results with minimum discomfort.
How to Use
The Veet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System is simple to use at home when performing the recommended steps.
1. Shave the area to be treated first.
2. Plug in the device.
3. Press the central button to turn the device on.
4. Select the area to start treating.
5. Choose the desired energy level, with Level 1 being the lowest energy and Level 5 being the highest. (Test different energy levels to find that highest level that can be used comfortably for that treatment area.)
6. Apply the treatment surface to the skin.
7. Press the pulse trigger while sliding the device along the skin. The pulse trigger can only be pressed once every five seconds. The unit will flash automatically every few seconds, indicating that area has been treated.
Duration of Treatment
Some people start to see results in four to five treatments. The number of treatment sessions needed varies, depending on the area being treated, the color of the hair, and the user’s skin color. Most people see permanent results after ten treatments. The interval between repeat treatments varies between individuals based on the rate of hair regrowth.
Who Can Use
The Veet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System can be used by both women and men. It should only be used on people with fair skin and dark hair. The device will not be effective on users with dark or very tanned skin, nor will it work on red, white, grey, or blond hair.
The device should not be used in conjunction with any of the following conditions:
- History of skin cancer or potential skin malignancies

Parts of the Body
The device can be used on the underarms, arms, stomach, bikini line, legs, back, and chest.
(The Vleet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System should not be used on any areas of the body that have scarring or an open wound. It should also not be used over any black or brown spots, tattooing, or permanent makeup.)
The Vleet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System has a number of safety features that make it FDA-cleared and available for home use. The lamp surface is recessed, so it does not touch the skin directly. The unit also has an automatic skin surface contact sensor, as well as a skin color sensor. The latter feature allows the device to emit pulses only when users have a suitable skin tone to achieve results.
There are no reported side effects with the The Vleet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System when used correctly according to the owner’s manual. Users should adjust the energy level on the device to eliminate any discomfort caused when the unit is activated.
One of the main reasons the The Vleet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System garners high praise from users is the ability to replace the light cartridge when it is worn out. With some other products, the entire device must be disposed of once the light cartridge is no longer functioning. Each cartridge should last for approximately 5,000 pulses, and the unit alerts users when there are only 100 pulses remaining.
Replacement cartridges are also desirable when multiple members of the household are using the device, so each user can keep track of the number of pulses they have left. This is also helpful when treating multiple areas of the body simultaneously to gauge the number of sessions remaining for permanent results.
The Veet Infini’Silk Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System uses IPL (intense pulsed light) to remove hair, which is different than laser treatments that use monochromatic light. The unit emits short bursts of light aimed at pigmented cells in the hair follicles. This causes hair to be destroyed at its root level and for it to eventually cease re-growing altogether, even in areas of stubborn growth. This is the same technology that is used at beauty salons and doctors’ offices now being harnessed for home hair removal.
