1- How does it work?
The SKINCARE PLUS Handset uses IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which is a modern type of laser hair removal treatment used for long-term, pain-free hair removal. When our Handset is used on your hair, it absorbs the IPL which then heats and destroys the targeted hair cells.
2- Is it safe?
Absolutely! There have been a number of studies around the world which prove 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.
3-Does it hurt?
One of the many advantages of our handset over other types of laser treatment is that it is pain-free. Most of the customers explain the feeling as a warm sensation on the skin.
4-Is it permanent?
Our Handset offers extremely long lasting results however no form of laser hair removal is permanent, even at the clinics. Just be careful when companies claim “permanent” hair removal, as this term technically means that there will be no regrowth of hair for 6 months. To maintain long-term results we advise using our Handset once a week for 8 weeks, then just once every few months for maintenance.
5-Do I need eye protection?
No, eye protection is not required whilst using our Handset. Our Handsets have been designed with a sensor and will not pulse a light unless the entire window is pressed against your skin. That being said, you should never try and look directly into the light as it flashes.
6-How long before I see permanent results?
Most users start to see a reduction of hair in just 2-3 treatments using our handset, with complete results after 9 treatments. However, results can vary from person to person.
7-How often should I use this device?
We recommend using your handset once a week for the first 8 weeks. After this period we recommend using your handset once a month, for 2 months or until satisfied. If you would like to maintain hairless, smooth skin, we recommend using your handset once every 2 to 3 months, or as needed.
8- Which area of the body should I use this on?
You can use your handset on your whole body, including your Bikini Area and face (just be sure to not get too close to your eyes).
