Yes. SmoothSkin products have given excellent results on the excess hair growth caused by PCOS. We would recommend using SmoothSkin Pure, our most powerful device for long-lasting results on the most stubborn hair.
To avoid any possible interactions, skin should always be clean and dry before treatments. We would recommend an interval of at least one week between applying Odaban and using SmoothSkin products. This is because Odaban and other similar products often result in a toxic skin reaction, or inflammation. If there is inflammation in the skin at the time of IPL treatment there is a risk of skin burn.
No. To avoid any possible interactions, skin should always be clean and dry.
Yes, but only after treatment, not before.
No – Do not use SmoothSkin if you are undergoing a self-tanning regime. There may be photosensitive properties in the self-tan moisturisers that could affect your skin’s reaction to IPL.
Yes, SmoothSkin devices can be used year-round. We just ask you to be extra careful during the summer months, or if you’ve been away on holiday. There are some precautions to take before and after tanning – both via sunbeds and prolonged exposure to the sun, as this increases skin sensitivity (a little sun on your skin from being outside isn’t a problem!).
Tanning before using SmoothSkin:
Tanning after using SmoothSkin:
Most areas of the body can be treated with the exception of: mucus membranes (i.e. inside nostrils, lips of mouth, ears, inner labia), directly on the genitals (including pubis bone, perineum and scrotum), or around the vagina or anus. We don’t advise you treat the facial area above your cheekbones.
