WHAT IS IPL?
IPL technology works by emitting flashes of light energy, sending these underneath the skin. This light energy is then absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft and transferred into heat energy. This kills the hair follicle at the root and stunts hair regrowth.
SmoothSkin have over 30 years experience in home-use IPL devices, expertly designing, manufacturing and testing their technology and devices at their Swansea HQ.
The brand have in-house teams of designers, engineers and clinical researchers who dedicate 100% of their time to developing the latest salon-standard technology. Read more about why SmoothSkin are the IPL device experts here.
The latest offering from SmoothSkin is the strongest, most powerful IPL device on the market. Pure emits a huge 20W of hair-stopping power, meaning you can go for longer in between your top-up treatments.
The device comes with 3 treatment modes: Power, Speed and Gentle. Select the Power Mode for treating stubborn hairs. Speed Mode is perfect for treating larger surface areas quickly, such as the legs. Use Gentle Mode on more sensitive areas of the body, such as the bikini line for a more comfortable but effective treatment.
This nifty little device can complete a full body treatment in just 10 minutes, emitting 100 flashes per minute for a speedy and super effective treatment. SmoothSkin Bare+ comes with 1 treatment mode, which makes for a simple, fuss-free permanent hair removal solution.
Who Can Use SmoothSkin?
You should refer to the Fitzpatrick Scale to see if IPL treatments are suitable for your skin tone. Those with skin tones VI on the scale should not use SmoothSkin.
Also, as red, very light blonde and grey/white hair does not contain enough melanin, IPL energy will not work on these hair colours either.
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.
