Questions and Answers
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.
Does it hurts?
One of the many advantages of our Handset over other types of laser is that it is pain-free. Most customers explain the feeling as a warm sensation on the skin.
It is 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.
Do I need to wear 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.
How long would it take before I start seen 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.
How often do I need to use it ?
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.
How many years will this product last?

Which areas of my body can I use it on?
You can use your handset on your whole body, including your brazilian and face (just be sure to not get too close to your eyes).
Do I need to shave before using your handset?
Yes, we recommend shaving the areas you wish to target before using your handset.
Which hair removal methods can I use between treatments?
Between your treatments you should only shave when required. We recommend never waxing, plucking, or epilating as these hair removal methods removes the entire root, which is what absorbs our handset's light during the treatment.
Is there a how-to-video?
We are currently working on a demonstration video which isn't far away!
Are there any reoccurring costs?
