smoothskin pure ipl hair removal 01

Why we recommend

It works on black, brown and dark blonde hair; there isn’t enough melanin in grey, white, red or pale blonde for it to get to grips with. It suits skin tones that are pale, or olive or brown, but not deep brown or black skin.

There’s a built-in sensor to adjust the light intensity depending on your skin tone. It has a decent sized treatment head and there is a ‘glide’ motion that means you can cover your legs in about five minutes each, which is amazing. And armpits take less than a minute with the stamping motion.

Use it once a week for 12 weeks, and you will have reduced the hair growth enough that you’ll only need to use it every month or two to maintain the results.

This powerful little device enables you to zap hair on your legs, underarms, bikini line – and your face too. You can – really quickly and painlessly – permanently reduce hair growth. Intense pulsed light – usually known as IPL – is a terrific technology for permanently reducing hair growth. The pulsed light is conducted down the melanin in your hairs, into the root of the hair, and stunts its growth.


Home-use Devices

    How do I use the Smoothskin Pure?

    The device comes with a detailed user manual, but essentially, you place the device in contact with the skin, press the activation button, and the device will flash. Then, move on to the next area to be treated and repeat. It’s very important to patch test first before using the device – again, instructions for how to do this are detailed in the user manual.

    Is the Smoothskin Pure an IPL device?

    Yes. Smoothskin Pure uses the same IPL technology as in-clinic or in-salon treatments to help break the cycle of hair growth and achieve a permanent reduction in unwanted hair growth.

    What is IPL?

    IPL is a technology that uses a broad-spectrum light (a collection of different wavelengths of light) to achieve a permanent reduction in unwanted hair growth and can also be used to treat various skin concerns. IPL works similarly to lasers, but IPL devices are less complex than lasers and are also less expensive for clinics to purchase.

    How long until I can see results using the smoothskin pure?

    Depending on your own hair’s growth cycle, which is usually about six to 12 weeks, you can see visible results from Smoothskin Pure IPL in as little as four weekd. The key is to be consistent with your sessions and stick to the recommended treatment plan. Initially, the device should be used every week for 12 weeks to ensure all hair follicles are treated, as follicles can be in different phases of growth to each other at any time. Hairs need to be in the anagen (the growth phase) for the treatment to be effective.

    What skin types can use the Smoothskin Pure?

    IPL is unsuitable for deep brown or black skin tones – categorised as a Fitzpatrick skin tone VI. This is because dark skin contains a high amount of pigment (melanin) – which is what IPL targets – and so will absorb too much light. in extreme cases, this can lead to burns, discolouration or even scarring.

    Smoothskin Pure suits skin tones that are pale, olive or brown with black, brown or dark blonde hair; there isn’t enough melanin in grey, white, red or pale blonde hair for it to get to grips with. There’s a built-in skin tone sensor which measures the amount of melanin in the skin and adjust the light intensity accordingly. If your skin is too dark for treatment, the sensor will detect this and block the device from operating.
