For the whole body we would advise roughly 10 minutes which is the fastest treatment time on the market.

The SmoothSkin Bare has unlimited flashes so you would never need to replace a cartridge
4. What areas can I use this on?
You can use this below nose level on the face and the body. We would say do not use on the nipples, genitals or around the anus as these areas have a darker skin colour and/or greater hair density.

We would expect to see a reduction in hair growth in as little as 4 weeks but you should continue treatments for the recommended 12 week period. You will then need maintenance treatments every few weeks to keep up the results.
HOW TO USE YOUR SMOOTHSKIN BARE
The SmoothSkin Bare Hair Removal Device works by targeting your hair follicles. For successful results, you must have a significant difference between the colour of your hair and the colour of your skin.
Before using your SmoothSkin Bare, prepare the area you want to treat by making sure you have shaved. Remove all visible hair before every treatment, and use on cleaned and dried skin.
Any hairs remaining above the surface may damage the front of your device. Remember, don't use any gels or creams with this device.
Step 1. Power on your SmoothSkin Bare device. Plug the power supply in using the cable provided. The skin tone sensor on the front of the handset will illuminate blue, and the fan will start up.
Step 2. The SmoothSkin Bare has a unique skin tone sensor. During treatment, the sensor is continuously active, searching for a valid skin tone. If there is no correct skin tone, the device cannot be activated.
Step 3. Press the handset firmly against the area you want to treat. The indicators around the activation button will illuminate WHITE when the device is ready to flash. Press the activation button. The device will flash, and you will feel a warm sensation. Move the handset to the next area to be treated and continue!
To get the best results, ensure that the entire area receives treatment. For stubborn areas like underarms, treat by running your device over the same area a maximum of 3 times.
When you have finished your treatment, unplug the device from its power outlet.
You can use the Stamp or Glide method for treatment.
The Stamp method is best for small areas like your face or underarms. You place the handset on the skin, press and release the activation button. Then, remove from the skin before re-applying to the next treatment area.
The Glide method is best for larger areas such as legs. Place the handset on the skin, press and hold the activation button. Then, glide the handset along your skin between flashes. Move the device at a steady speed to ensure you get full coverage without any missed areas or overlap.
