WHAT IS IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) stunts the hair cycle and reduces hair regrowth. It works by transferring light energy through the skin’s surface, this light energy is then absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. The light energy is then converted into heat energy, which destroys the hair follicle.
SmoothSkin Pure uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to stunt hair regrowth. The device uses a 20W energy output, meaning you’ll see results quickly and after your initial treatment period, you’ll need less regular top ups.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
You should use SmoothSkin Pure once a week for the first 12 weeks, to ensure all of the hair follicles are treated. As hair grows in different phases, it’s important to continue your weekly treatments to ensure the chosen area has been thoroughly treated. With regular and consistent treatments, you'll notice fewer hairs growing back. Any hair that does grow back will be finer, lighter in colour and will grow much more slowly.
After 12 weeks, you’ll only need to complete top-up treatments as and when they are required. This is usually only once every 4-8 weeks, which is hugely different to shaving 2-5 times a week. Everyone’s treatment regimen will differ, as it can entirely depend on your skin, hair type and even lifestyle. However as time goes on, you should be able to replace your shaving routine completely.
TAILOR YOUR TREATMENT
With 3 treatment modes you can really tailor your permanent hair reduction treatment. The Power Mode is the highest intensity setting, perfect for stubborn hairs around your bikini line and underarms. Select the Speed Mode to quickly complete treatments on larger surface areas like the arms and legs. Or if your skin is prone to sensitivity in some areas, the Gentle Mode delivers an effective treatment at a lower energy output, making the whole process much more comfortable.
When in any of the 3 modes, you can use the Glide or Stamp Method. The Stamp Method is best for smaller areas such as the underarm and bikini line. It allows you to be more precise with the treatment in harder to reach areas. The Glide Method allows you to move the device at a steady speed across larger surface areas, to give full coverage at a quicker pace.
Who Can Use SmoothSkin?
The chart shows the skin tones that are suitable for IPL treatment, these are skin tones I to V on the Fitzpatrick Scale. IPL is not suitable for skin tone VI, so you should not use the device on very dark skin tones as this may cause damage to the skin.
IPL is effective on naturally black, brown and darker blonde hair colours, but may not be as effective on red, white, grey or very light blonde hair. White and grey hair does not contain enough melanin to absorb the light energy. Red hair contains a different type of melanin which is not responsive to IPL.
How to use:
1. Prep the area by completing a patch test and wax or epilate to ensure the skin is hair-free.
2. After 24 hours, make sure the skin is clean and dry.
3. Use SmoothSkin Pure to steadily glide over the treatment area for even coverage.
4. For best results, we recommend using every week for 12 weeks, with maintenance top-ups every 4 to 8 weeks after that.
