The GoSmooth IPL device works most effective on naturally
brown, dark brown and dark blonde hair. However it works less effective on
light blonde, red, grey and white hair. We advise to use a higher flash
intensity for these hair types. The device is also not suitable for skin tone VI (Fitzpatrick scale) like very dark brown to black skin tones.

With just 4-5 times self-treatment sessions, you will experience visually diminished hair. After using IPL for 3-6 months, your hair is prevented from growing back. Thus achieving a long-lasting and efficient hair-removal experience.
You can use IPL on the lip area, chin, sideburns, armpits, arms, legs, tummy, bikini and also around private parts. In fact, you can use it on your whole body except the sensitive areas. Sensitive areas like eyes, on genitals, nipples and lips must be avoided.
Who can use it? Avoid using the IPL-device recently tanned skin. This beauty tool is ideal for use with lighter skin tones and brown-to-black hair. However it’s less effective to use it on white, grey, red and blond hair. Also you cannot use the device on very dark (type VI) skin tone.
Make sure to keep the power cord plugged in at all time when using the device. Do not pull the plug out when using the device. The IPL device can not be charged in advance. Just plug in the power cord and after letting it run for approximately 1 minute you can start using it.
We recommend to first try the device on intensity level 1, from there turn up the intensity after each treatment for better results.
The device emits an Intense Pulse Light into the pores which will be absorbed by the hair follicles. This absorbed light will as a result be transferred into heat and destroy the hair follicle. This way hair growth will be prevented on the skin areas you have treated with IPL.
The accepted minimum age to begin laser hair removal can be as young as 14 years old. However most experts recommend waiting until the teenager is through puberty and, if female, has begun her menstrual cycle. Females should be hormonally stable and should not have medical conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
IPL is not safe for pregnant females. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is simply visible light (like sunlight) but given at a high energy. There is no carcinogenic radiation, no ultraviolet light, and no cancer potential or potential harm to internal organs / baby. The light does not penetrate farther than the skin. We still strongly advise to not use the device if you are pregnant. This is due to no long-term research done on effects of IPL on pregnant women.

IPL hair removal is completely painless, the only thing you feel during a flash is a slightly warm feeling. This warm feeling is not painful at all and if you this feeling is too strong you can always lower the flash intensity.
