HOW TO USE YOUR IPL HANDSET FOR HAIR REMOVAL
IPL hair removal can be used on almost any body part (for external use only).
It is critical to do a patch test before using IPL in a new location. Its purpose is to determine whether or not you are hypersensitive (allergic) to the light produced by the device, especially if you have sensitive skin.
How to do a patch test:
Select a small area of skin on the inside of the upper arm. From the lowest to highest level, use the IPL handset 1~2 times at the same location.
Wait 2 hours and observe if you have redness, burns, pain or other symptoms. These are common side effects that will fade after a day or less. If any of these side effects last longer than 2 days, do not continue IPL use.
On slight discomfort, use the product again on a lower intensity setting, however if discomfort continues, consult a doctor before further use.
To Use an IPL Hair Removal Device:
1. Take a photo of the target areas before treatment
2. Plug your device into a power source
3. Select your intensity level
4. Place the window/flash port of the IPL on the target area
5. Click the flash button
6. Move to the next area
You should feel a warm sensation as the light is absorbed into the hair follicles. After treatment, apply a cooling gel or lotion to soothe the skin if needed.
IPL treatments are typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart in a professional, but this can vary depending on the area being treated and your individual hair growth.
Given that at-home IPL hair removal devices are less concentrated than laser or professional IPL hair removal treatments, you should use your device once a week (for the first 12 weeks)to get the best and most rapid results possible.
IPL DEVICE TREATMENT MODES.
Most IPL device comes with two treatment modes.
1. Manual mode
2. Automatic mode
The manual mode is just that; you manually click the button for each flash, while the automatic flash mode allows for an almost hands-free treatment.
Each IPL device is different, so it won't do you any good to leave instructions on accessing these functions here.
However, if you are using or planning to use either of our IPL handsets, then you can find more information on how to use the devices by accessing the online KetchBeauty IPL user manual
