IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and used on skin to flash melanin in the shaft of the hair. The beam of light converts energy to heat and disables the hair follicular cells that are responsible for hair growth. IPL technology has been used as therapy to help reduce the effects of aging, wrinkles and unwanted hair leaving users with younger, healthier and glowing skin. IPL technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners is now available for you to achieve smooth, silky, and sexy skin at a fraction of the cost!
Darker hair is more easily treated as this it will contain more melanin and will absorb more light. Lighter hair contains less melanin and is harder to treat. For grey or white hair, it may not be as effective in treatment because grey/white hair has no melanin.

Yes, it is. When performed as recommended the IPL handset is a safe and effective.
It depends, but it’s usually in as little as 3-4 treatments, with complete results in 12 treatments. Individual results may vary based on skin tone, hair thickness, color, and hair growth cycles. Prepare and stick to your IPL treatment plan and before you know it - BOOM! You’re bald.
Great question! IPL is not all rainbows and butterfly kisses, but it doesn’t hurt. Most users liken the sensation to a rubber band being lightly bounced on the skin. In the most sensitive areas, it feels like a pinch. At best, it feels like barely anything at all.
It is not necessary to use eye protection while using your IPL handset. Your handset has a sensor that will not pulse unless completely pressed against your skin. With all things considered, do not directly look into the IPL handset as it flashes.
Everything. If the targeted surface can grow hair, it is fair game to IPL that region. Typical regions include legs, arms, armpits, face, upper lips, chest, back and of course your nether regions that hardly see any sunshine. Please refer to manual for full instruction.
It sounds counterintuitive but YES! You should shave before using your IPL handset.
Refrain from waxing, plucking or epilating as this will remove the root. The hair root is what absorbs the light during treatment so don’t trash your razors just yet and shave between treatments.
IPL treatment is suitable for all except for the darkest skin tones. Please refer to the skin tone chart link.
There is no scientific evidence of IPL treatment having harmful effects for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. However, babies are so precious so it's better to consider using your IPL handset after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
No, as some moles and freckles can be problematic. Please consult with your physician before usage.

12V power supply included.
12-month warranty and 500,000 flashes life. If used as recommended you can use your handset for over 12+ years!

Don't pluck, wax, epilate, tweeze or bleach any unwanted hair between or before treatment as doing so interferes with the hair follicle root. The hair follicle needs to remain intact to remove hair effectively. Shave between treatments and right before using your handset for best results.
After the procedure, you may notice some redness or swelling which will fade away quickly. Keep your skin moisturized after your treatment.
