HOW DOES IPL WORK
SMOOTHSKIN GOLD is designed to help break the cycle of hair growth. Light energy is transferred through the skin’s surface and is absorbed by melanin present in the hair shaft. The absorbed light energy is converted to heat energy (below the surface of the skin), which disables the hair follicle preventing further growth. Treated hairs naturally fall out over the course of a few days to 1-2 weeks.
Hair growth is cyclical and follows 3 distinct and consecutive phases. IPL treatment is only effective when hairs are in a particular phase (the Anagen – growth phase). Not all hairs are in the same phase at any one time. This is why you should follow the recommended treatment regimen of 12 weekly treatments.
IPL treatment relies on melanin in the hair absorbing the light energy. Treatment is most effective on dark hair. SMOOTHSKIN GOLD is not effective on very light, red or grey coloured hair.
WHAT TO EXPECT
IMMEDIATELY POST TREATMENT
You should not see any significant side effects from treatment (Refer to section 5.2 for more information on side effects)
In the first few weeks following the initial treatments, you will still see some hairs growing. These are likely to be hairs that were missed during treatment i.e. they were lying dormant and not in their growth phase (Anagen) during treatment; when IPL is most effective.
6 WEEKS INTO THE 12 WEEK PROGRAMME
You should see a reduction in hair growth. However, many hairs may still not have been treated in their growth phase. It is important to continue the weekly treatments.
AFTER THE 12 WEEK PROGRAMME
Immediately after you have completed the 12 week programme you should see a significant reduction in hairs within the treated area. Any remaining hairs should be finer and lighter in colour. Continued monthly treatments, or treatments as required, should keep your skin permanently hair-free.
1. INTELLIGENT SKIN SENSORS
Detect & Set
SMOOTHSKIN GOLD has 2 unique, sophisticated Skin Tone Sensors located either side of the Treatment Window.
During a treatment, the sensors are continuously active, searching for a valid skin tone.
If both the Skin Tone Sensors DO NOT detect a valid skin tone, then the handset cannot be activated.
The handset will only detect the correct Skin Tone when both Skin Tone Sensors (either side of the Treatment Window) are pressed against the skin.
The status of the Skin Tone Sensors can be seen on the Power Bars located on both sides of the handset. If a valid skin tone is detected, the Power Bars will illuminate white. The number of lights illuminated will be dependent upon your exact skin tone.
Optimal Power Settings have been carefully selected to ensure maximum safety and efficacy. This unique feature ensures you get a personalised treatment every time you use SMOOTHSKIN GOLD.
