Dare to Bare This Summer With SmoothSkin IPL At-Home Hair Removal

Summer is approaching, and we know there’s nothing worse than stubbly legs ruining your plans to wear that summer dress. The good news is that you can say goodbye to unwanted hair forever, without the hefty price-tag of laser hair removal. With SmoothSkin’s IPL devices, you can stop hair re-growth from the comfort of your own home.

What Is IPL?

IPL is Intense Pulsed Light, and can be used to safely and effectively remove body hair. IPL works by emitting a pigment-targeting wavelength into the skin. The pigment that is in our hair absorbs the light energy, which turns into heat energy in the hair shaft. This heat then kills the growing cells that produce the hair. As IPL only works on hair that’s currently active in the growth cycle, it takes multiple sessions over 12 weeks to fully kill the hair cells. Fortunately, with an at-home IPL tool such as SmoothSkin’s Bare IPL Hair Removal Device, it’s quick and easy to complete the course.

How Does SmoothSkin Bare Work?

If you find shaving or waxing time-consuming, then you’ll love how quick and easy SmoothSkin is to use. After shaving, the device is held over the area you want to target, and once you press the button a light flashes. It takes less than a second, and then you can move onto the next area. The device can be used on legs, underarms and the bikini line and with up to 100 flashes per minute, you can easily target the hair on your whole body in around 10 minutes!

As mentioned, we recommend that the IPL device is used for 12 weeks to see full results. It should be used weekly, and once the 12 weeks is up it can then be used monthly to maintain the results.


Who Can Use SmoothSkin’s IPL Devices?

Because the light targets pigment, SmoothSkin works best on hairs with a lot of pigment, i.e. medium to dark hair. Lighter blonde, grey or red hairs are more difficult to target using IPL, so fair-haired people may not see the best results.

Similarly, SmoothSkin is intended for use on light, medium and dark skin tones. However, those with very dark skin tones are advised against using the device, because the increased melanin in their skin could be affected by the wavelength. SmoothSkin Bare actually checks your skin tone before each flash is activated, so you will only be able to use the device if it’s safe.

Once they have been heated by the wavelength, hairs will start to fall out any time from a few days to 1-2 weeks after being treated. Visible results can be seen as soon as 4 weeks after starting, with the full effects being apparent after 12 weeks of regular treatment.
