Frequently asked questions

Not only are SmoothSkin the experts of IPL, it’s all we do. No toasters. No TVs. No toothbrushes.

With our own team of industry experts in research, product development and clinical studies based right here at SmoothSkin HQ, we dedicate 100% of our time and resources to researching, designing, engineering, producing and even testing our state of the art IPL technology.

From studying the interaction of light, skin and hair at a cellular level; through to investigating the most effective pre- and post- treatment care, we’re constantly testing and learning to make sure that you get the best possible results from your SmoothSkin products.

All of SmoothSkin’s products are manufactured right here in the UK.

Way back in 1979, a scientist called Marc Clement stumbled across the basis of IPL technology – the technology that SmoothSkin uses to this day – when he accidentally ran a laser beam across his forearm and was surprised to spot that the hair didn’t grow back. Professor Clement went on to develop the world’s first hair removal lasers, and in 2002, he joined forces with three other local entrepreneurs (a scientist, an engineer and a businessman, to be precise) to create Cyden – the brains behind the SmoothSkin brand. In fact, two founding members still work for Cyden today, Professor Clement included.

With more than 30 years’ experience, SmoothSkin are the pros of the IPL hair removal world.  Not only do we design and make our products all here in the UK, but we also carry out our own research and even run our own clinical trials, all from our HQ in Swansea, South Wales, UK.
