We don’t know about you, but we find hair removal a long and boring process. That’s why we made SmoothSkin Bare, our brand new Ultrafast Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device. With 100 flashes per minute, you can treat your whole body in less than 10 minutes – impressive stuff! And it doesn’t stop there… SmoothSkin Bare has UNLIMITED flashes – yes, you read correctly! You won’t ever have to worry about running out of flashes, so that you can look forward to silky smooth skin that lasts so long you’ll have forgotten all about stubbly legs and prickly underarms.
So how does IPL work again? Let’s run through the technical bits quickly… SmoothSkin Bare is designed to help break the hair cycle and prevent regrowth. Light energy is absorbed by the hair follicle which heats up and stops the hairs from growing back. Now you can look forward to seeing the treated hairs naturally fall out over the course of a few days to 1-2 weeks.
As for all home-use IPL or laser treatments (don’t believe anyone who would tell you otherwise), one treatment won’t last forever. You will need to keep treating the hairs every once in a while to avoid hair growth starting up again; but the great thing about SmoothSkin Bare is that it will prevent hair re-growth as long as you keep treating regularly, so if you keep it up, you will never have to experience stubbly legs or underarms again. Hoorah! It doesn’t just limit you to the usual suspect areas of unwanted hair either – oh no – you can also treat the upper lip, chin, cheek, jawline and neck.
SmoothSkin Bare checks your skin tone before each flash so that light will only be activated when safe. Although we wish SmoothSkin Bare could be suitable for all, we unfortunately don’t recommend for very dark skin, or very light body hair. This is because very dark skin has a considerable amount of pigment (melanin) and will absorb more light then the skin can handle, therefore it can potentially burn, discolour or scar your skin. Thanks to our clever sensor, Bare won’t release energy unless it’s safe to do so, but we do always recommend giving yourself a quick zap patch test first.
Used correctly, you can see up to 92% hair reduction after just 4 weeks of treatment* and what’s better is that you don’t need any gels or creams with this device – so goodbye mess! There is however, only one secret, and that’s sticking to your treatment regime. With regular use, you will see fewer and fewer hairs growing back. As time goes on, you’ll be able to replace your shaving routine forever!
