What is IPL?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a modern type of laser hair removal used for permanent/long-term hair removal.
How does IPL work?
Light energy from IPL is absorbed by the melanin in the hair, which then turns to heat and destroys the hair cells.
Is it safe?
There have been numerous worldwide studies that demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular, safe and effective method of hair removal at home and in clinics.
Does it hurt?
One of the biggest advantages of IPL over other types of laser is that it is far less painful. Most customers explain the feeling as a warm sensation on the skin.
Do I need to wear eye protection?
No, it isn't necessary to wear eye protection while using our handset. Our handsets are fitted with a sensor and will not pulse and light unless the entire window is pressed against your skin. That being said you should never look directly into the light as it flashes.
How long will it take before I start seeing results?
Most customers begin to notice a reduction of hair after just 3-4 treatments, with complete results after 12 treatments. However, results vary from person to person.
How often do I need to use it?
We recommend using your handset once a week for the first 12 weeks. After this period use your handset once a month, for 3 months or until satisfied. To maintain hairless smooth skin, use your handset once every 2 to 3 months, or as needed.
How many years will this product last?
Our handsets have 500,000 flashes, which will last well over 20 years if used as directed.
How strong is this product and what is the energy output?
Our handsets have an energy output of 3.9J/cm2 which means it is ideal for hair removal and is also approved for safe and effective at-home use.
Which areas of my body can I use this on?
You can use your handset on your entire body, including your Brazilian and face (just be sure to not get too close to your eyes).
Do I need to shave before using this product?
Yes, you should shave the desired areas before using your handset.
Which hair removal methods can I use between treatments?
Between treatments you should only shave when required. You should never wax, pluck, or epilate as these hair removal methods removes the entire root, which is what absorbs the light during the treatment.
Is there a how-to video?
Are there any reoccurring costs?

Is it safe to IPL over freckles or moles?
You should not IPL over very dark freckles or moles, however light freckles are fine.
Is it safe to IPL over tattoos?

If you have recently been tanning, we recommend waiting 2 weeks before using your handset. You should wait 48 hours to tan after using your handset. Artificial tan should not be on your skin while using your handset.
How is the handset powered?
Our handsets are not cordless, and will need to be plugged into the power supply at all times of use. Our handsets come with a 12v power supply.
Does the handset come with a warranty?
Should your handset no longer perform the way it is intended to due to manufacturing issues, then your product will be replaced under your 1 year warranty.
Does this remove hair permanently?
You actually have to be careful when anyone claims ‘permanent’ hair removal as all forms of IPL/Laser hair removal require some maintenance, or eventually the hair will start growing back. After completing your initial sessions with our handsets you will only have to use your handset once every 3 months to maintain smooth, hairless skin.
What modes does the handset have?
Our handsets have 2 modes you can use it on. Manual mode, where the handset will flash as you press the trigger button. Auto mode, where the handset will flash on its own (when ready), without you pressing any buttons at all. To activate this mode, hold down the trigger button for 3 seconds.
Can I share my handset with someone else?
Yes, you can. This may decrease the lifetime of the handset per user. You should also always thoroughly clean the handset after each use.
Is this suitable for men?
Definitely! Our handsets are suitable for both men and women.
Does IPL work on all hair colours?
IPL relies on melanin in the hair absorbing the light energy, and therefore IPL is not effective on very light blonde, red, or grey coloured hair.
