Does this work on light hair?

We're adding this to your basket.
Be prepared to change your hair removal rituals forever with the SmoothSkin Bare.
Bold and bright, the new Summer Collection is a limited range of colours for the SmoothSkin Bare, so there's never been a better time to say goodbye to razors or waxing appointments.
Thanks to its ultrafast flash, treating your face and body is easy and effortless. It flashes every 0.6 seconds. Compact and easy to hold, the device is ideal for using at home or on the go.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
The SmoothSkin Bare works by transferring light energy through the skin's surface with 100 flashes per minute. The melanin in the hair shaft absorbs the light energy, and this same light energy converts to heat energy below the skin's surface. This stops hairs from growing back.
Who Can Use SmoothSkin?
SmoothSkin is suitable for those with skin type I to IV according to the Fitzpatrick Scale. It is not suitable for use on blonde, white, grey or red hair.
Since light blonde, grey and white hair do not contain enough or any melanin, IPL treatment will never work on these hair colours. Red hair contains a different type of melanin, which is also not responsive to IPL.
SmoothSkin is also not suitable for dark skin tones, as it can cause skin damage such as burns, blisters or discolouring.
