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.

Does this work as good and give the same results as the Flash&Go Permanent Hair Removal device with the purple top?
I'm planning on buying one and I was wanting to know if they worked the same or if one was the better buy?

Hi, thanks for your question!
The Flash&Go Freedom and the Flash&Go both use the same award winning HPL technology, providing the same great results!
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

No it is not compatible with the original flash and go.
Ive not purchased it, but ive done some research on the internet.
This is very unfortunate, because i do not know where i can purchase the original cartridges, it seems like sephora discontinued them :(

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!

Color of the Laser
I was looking to know the color of the rays the laser emits. I am looking to use eye protection while using this and the glasses differ by what color light you are trying to block. Thank you!

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.

It's not easy to look at the light so I can't be 100% sure of the color but it could be green or yellow.

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)

Hi, thanks for your question!
Our Flash&Go Freedom users have experienced excellent results treating facial areas from the cheekbones down. Please note when treating with the Freedom Flash&Go, it is important to wear high SPF sunscreen. The Flash&Go freedom targets pigment in the hair follicle, so it will be successful in targeting light brown to dark hair.
You mentioned medium skin tone, if you are unsure whether your skin tone falls within the suitable range, please refer to your manual or call a Sephora customer service rep for more information.

It works better the lighter the skin and darker the hair. I do believe it will work for you at a medium setting

Hi, thanks for your question.
The Flash&Go Freedom comes with an extra-long life lamp cartridge. Depending on which area you are treating, you should be able to fully complete your treatments. Many users enjoy sharing their devices and will purchase additional cartridges that are available on-line and in selected stores.
