The HPL technology in the device has been designed to capture all the clinical benefits of pulsed light for hair removal at home.A unique skin color sensor is built into the Flash&Go Freedom to measure the treated skin complexion at the beginning of each session and occasionally during the session, ensuring that pulses will only be emitted on suitable skintones. As with professional laser treatments, a series of treatments are required to clear an area of unwanted hair—the result is lasting silky-smooth skin. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know:This device covers a large treatment size of four centimeters and is designed for all body areas including delicate and sensitive areas.

The original Flash&Go (Purple device) cartridges are not compatible with the Flash&Go Freedom. But not to worry, you can still buy both refill cartridges online at Sephora.com .
Flash&Go Freedom refill cartridges are available online and in selected stores.
We hope that answers your question!

You can buy the refill cartridges for the Silk'n Flash & Go (original, purple top) at the Silk'n website - no problem. The original Flash & Go works wonderfully and has changed my life, for real. I haven't tried the new Freedom bc the original works great for me, but wanted to pass along the good word. I can wear shorts or jump in a swimsuit for a swim any time I like without any concern about hairy legs or stubble. Read the guidance - light skin with dark hair works best.

If you buy one, buy this new one. Cartridges for the original are difficult to find and perhaps on track for extinction. Don't buy the original. Also, save your reciept

Hi, Thanks for your question.
The Flash&Go Freedom and the Flash&Go both use the same award winning HPL technology, so they both will provide the same great results. The Flash&Go Freedom comes with an extra-long life lamp cartridge.
The original Flash&Go (Purple device) cartridges are not compatible with the Flash&Go Freedom. But not to worry, you can still buy both refill cartridges online at Sephora.com. Flash&Go Freedom refill cartridges are available online and in selected stores.
You treat the same way: Once every two weeks for roughly 4 to 6 treatments (although some users have found great results as quick as two). After that it becomes maintenance as needed.
Hope that answers your question!

Question
How is this one different from the other?
I bought one by the same name in January. It is the same shape and design, but not pink on top like this one. Is it just restyled, or does it operate differently? Also will these replacement cartridges work in my original?

It orange. I just received mine last week. I've used it on my boyfriends back and chest. Once I place it correctly, I shut my eyes and pull the trigger. It's super bright and hurts my eyes.

The freedom has 5,000 pulses.
I have almost finished my treatments (I did my legs, bikini, arms, under arms) and I haven't needed to replace my 1st cartridge.
I am starting to do my bf back, so maybe then I will need one more, but so far so good.

Hi, thanks for your question!
Treatments work best on dark hair types, or hair that contains more melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair and skin its color, and will absorb light energy. Black and dark brown respond the best, although light brown hairs will also respond but typically require a few extra treatments. Red may show some response. White, grey or blonde hairs usually don't respond as well to treatments, though some users have noted results after multiple treatments.
We hope that answers your question!

no. The light pulses seek out pigment, so,it will not 'see' your fair hair. Even professional treatment will not do it. If you must permanently rid of hair, professional electrolysis is the way to go. Also, over time, an epilator or waxing damages the follicle enough to prevent regrowth. (Like brow plucking)
