5. How to use
5.1 Use an alcohol wipe, rag, towel, paper towel, or moist towelette to clean the glass window.
*NOTE* shave or trim the hair on the desired treatment area to skin length before using the device to reduce pain and increase effectiveness.
5.2 Plug in the power cable and press the “power button” for 2-3 seconds. The device will start (the LCD screen is bright, and you can hear the system running). *The device is not chargeable and must be plugged in.
5.3 Ice Cold Mode: Press the snowflake button to toggle the feature on and off
*Note* After powering the device, the “HR” indicator will display on the screen.
Move the flash window/port to your skin; you will see the “HR” indicator light flickering. A human body induction sensor is built into the flash window (for safety), and the sensor will sense skin when you get close to it.
The “HR” light indicator must be flickering; otherwise, the device will not work. If you find that the “HR” is not blinking, bring it closer to your skin until it does flicker.

5.4 Click the power button to select a suitable intensity level (8 levels indicated on the screen.) The diagram below shows the intensity level from low to high. You can make adjustments in the sequence shown with a power button click. If this is your first time using an IPL, start at level one (1) and do a “patch test,” then wait two (2) hours before continuing
5.5 After choosing your level, move the flash window to your desired treatment area, which can cover the flash window completely; you will see the “HR” light flickering, and then click the flash button.
5.6 Automatic flash mode: If you want to switch to automatic flash mode, press the flash button for two (2) seconds, and you’ll see “A” displayed on the bottom left of the screen. When you release the button, the flash window will light up as soon as it touches the skin. To return to manual mode, press the flash button again; the “A” should no longer be displayed on the screen.
*Note* Repeat treatments (flash/pulse) in each area 2-3 times during each weekly session for the best results. In other words: flash each area you treat up to three (3) during each session
5.7 Power off: Press the power button for two (2) seconds to shut it down
5.8 When finished using, please clean the flash window using an alcohol wipe or wet wipe (After frequent use, there will be white dew spots inside the flash lens, this is normal and will not affect device usage or effectiveness)
5.9 Your skin may lose moisture after treatments (not permanently); use a hydrating lotion or aloe vera gel to retain moisture
5.10 It takes time for the IPL to convert electric energy into light energy for hair removal. The higher the level, the slower the light output interval will be. The light output interval will be about ~ 0.8 seconds at level one (1) and ~ 2 seconds at level eight (8).
6. Hair Management Process
6.1 Test before use: You must check for adverse reactions before fully committing to this device. You can do so by conducting a skin/patch test two (2) hours before any hair removal procedure.
Test method: On a small area of skin on the inside of the upper arm, start from levels 1-3 and flash the device once (side by side). After two (2) hours, if you notice burns, sharp pain, blistering, or other unlikely severe symptoms, discontinue use and consult a doctor before using again.
Swelling and redness are common and most likely will happen depending on the level you choose due to the heat emitted by the device.
Both symptoms usually subside within a few minutes or hours. Use the cold feature to reduce the chances of these happening.

7. Device Operation Notes

7.2 After treatment, some skin redness is normal. You can cool the area with ice water or a cold, damp towel.
7.3 Ensure your skin is clean and free of all substances before using the IPL. Please do not use it with other cosmetics like water gel products.
7.4 If you have dark skin, a reaction may not be readily apparent and may be delayed; in this case, ensure the two (2) hour waiting period is followed before increasing the intensity setting.
7.5 Continue to look after your skin by moisturizing and using sunscreen.
7.6 Do not block the air inlet and the cooling outlet not to affect the device’s cooling.
7.7 Hair stuck to the device may cause some blank spots but does not affect its performance and regular use.
