LaziSkin works on most hair types. IPL relies on melanin which is found within the hair pigment, absorbing the light energy. Although noticeable, it is not as effective on very light blonde hair or grey coloured hair.
IPL is suitable for all but the darkest skin tones. However, you should not use your handset over areas where there are very dark freckles or moles. But it is ok to use over light freckles. If you have skin tone brown or dark brown only use up to intensity level 3 and start by testing Laziskin on intensity level 1.
IPL is now the most effective and common method for removing hairs. All of our products have been clinically tested to meet all regulation safety standards. Because of this, IPL has become an extremely popular, safe and effective method of hair removal at home and in clinics. We recommend checking prior to purchase whether you are suitable for IPL.
No, it isn't necessary to wear any eye protection while using the LaziSkin IPL. Thanks to a sensor on the handset, unless the entire window is pressed against your skin, the handset will not pulse. But as with any light, it's not recommended to look directly into the source.
You can use your handset on your entire body, including some more sensitive areas. This includes your Brazilian/ bikini area (but not around or on the genitalia), face, arms, hands, legs, back and neck, feet... but do not point directly into your eyes.
It is only recommended to shave if you need to. You should never wax, epilate or pluck hairs as these hair removal methods removes the root, which is what absorbs the light from the LaziSkin IPL during the treatment.
It's recommended to wait 48 hours after using the IPL before tanning. If you have recently been sunbathing, it's recommend to wait 2 weeks before using your IPL handset on your skin. In addition, artificial tan (fake tan) should not be on your skin.
