IPL Hair Removal Handset

Frequently Asked Questions

What is IPL

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and has gained widespread popularity for the many benefits it affords the user. This modern technology aims to remove unwanted hair, slow the aging process by reducing wrinkles and perfect the skin tone by treating blemishes. Multiple uses of IPL also increase collagen production in the skin, leaving you glowing from the inside out! Due to IPL’s diverse range of uses and proven results, IPL is a must for anyone wanting to look and feel their best.

How To

Before Starting:
It is very important to shave any visible hair before use.

Ensure your skin is completely clean and dry (don’t use any gels or

creams with your handset).

Instructions:

1) Plug the handset in and click the green button on the back to turn it on.

 

2) The green button is also used to switch through the intensity levels  (1 for low – 5 for high). 

 

The blue lights on the front will indicate the intensity level.

 

3) Make sure your intensity level is set to 1 if it is your first session. 

 

For the best results, you should use your handset on the highest possible intensity level that isn’t painful. We recommend gradually increasing the intensity level after each session if the experience was not painful.

 

4) To use, ensure that the light window is completely flat against the skin. The pink light will begin to blink once you’ve placed the light window onto your skin. This indicates that the handset is ready to be used.

 

The handset has a sensor and will not flash unless the light window is in direct contact with your skin. If it is not in direct contact with your skin, the pink light will stay illuminated and the handset will not flash.

5) Click the Pulse button. Continue this over multiple areas until finished. Lift the head slightly after each pulse to avoid overheating.

 

For stubborn areas, we recommend that you treat the area up to 2 times per week and to try a higher intensity. 

 

6) Press and hold the green button on the back to turn it off. Always disconnect device from the electricity supply when finished.

We recommend using your handset once a week for the first 12 weeks. You can also use it twice per week for faster results. After this period, use the handset once a month for 3 months or until satisfied. To maintain hairless smooth skin after that, you may need to use the handset once every 2 to 3 months or as needed.

It is not necessary to treat the area more than once a week. This is because IPL is most effective in the hair growth phase, and some hairs may be dormant during treatment. This is why it is recommended to do 12 consecutive weeks of treatment.

If you are struggling to see results, try a higher intensity and use your handset 2 times per week (never more). Do this until you see some results, then you can reduce your frequency back to once per week.

You can use your handset on any part of your body, including your Brazilian (Bikini area) and face. But please do not use around the eyes (use only below cheekbones)

Yes, we recommend that you shave the desired areas between treatments and before using your handset. Shaving takes the hair down to the appropriate length whereas not to cause any burns during treatment but also allowing the hair root to get targeted effectively. Other forms of hair removal including waxing and tweezing will remove the hair root entirely. Which won’t allow the IPL to target the root. That being said if you run your hand over the area and cannot feel any hair at all, then there is no need to shave. In regards to peach fuzz on the face, we recommend derma planning to remove those hairs prior to treatment.

 

Our IPL handset works by emitting a wavelength which targets pigment in the hair. As the light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair it turns to heat which then kills the hair growth cells. Hair will grow back more sparse and slower after each treatment, reducing hair growth permanently overtime.

We recommend starting at the lowest intensity and working your way up each session, if you get uncomfortable and/or get marks that last longer than a couple days it means that intensity is too high for you and the one below it should work best.

Three Modes Explained:

We realize that not all body parts are created equal, so we created three separate modes that will make your IPL hair removal journey that much simpler. #BeautyMadeSimple is our motto after all.

Stamp Mode:

With Stamp Mode each individual click of the pulse button causes a flash.

This is the default mode on your Handset, it is perfect for precision areas like the underarms, bikini area and face. 

Glide Mode:

Hold down the pulse button and glide the handset across your body your handset will automatically flash every half second. Please lift handset after each flash to cool the bulb. 

Perfect to quickly and precisely treat areas such as your arms and torso.

Auto Mode:

Hold down the pulse button away from your skin until all indicator lights are blinking. This will make the handset flash every half second it is in contact with your skin, without clicking anything. Please lift handset after each flash to cool the bulb. To disable, hold down the pulse button until the lights stop blinking. 

Perfect to quickly and effortlessly treat your legs.

To clean handset, disconnect the device from the electricity supply. Wipe with a clean, dry cloth and 70% alcohol. Never use acetone or other abrasive fluids, because they will damage your device. Then use a wipe to dry the device.

Never immerse your handset or any of its parts in water.
