Many people dream of removing unwanted hair and people use all types of hair removal methods in order to achieve permanently hair free skin. So, what methods offer permanent hair removal? Well, Intense Pulsed Light devices, such as our SmoothSkin Gold, are designed to offer a long term hair free solution.
However, there are always those questions that creep into our thoughts:
Does IPL really work and is it permanent?
The answer is YES. Our clinical trials prove we can give both men and women safe permanent hair removal. Some people are still uncertain whether we are up to the challenge, but we have impressive results and individual testimonials that state hair reduction after just 3 treatments.
So if you are like us and want to know the technicalities that support our permanent hair removal then here is a taster of our clinical studies.
What: One of our clinical studies includes 50 healthy female volunteers aged between 18 and 45 years old with skin tone levels 1-5.
Why: The aim of the study was to see if SmoothSkin Gold delivered long term permanent hair reduction.
How long: The study lasts for 61 weeks (20 visits) and has so far given us valuable and excellent data.
*The diagrams above show the median value for the bikini line and the lower leg after 4 treatments
*The diagrams above show the median value for the bikini line and the lower leg 1 week after the 12 weekly treatments.
Our trials proved that by following our 12 week regime, volunteers have experienced noticeable hair reduction after just 4 weeks. The study shows the volunteers noticed 50% hair reduction on their bikini line and 67% hair reduction on the lower leg after the 4th week of treatment. The exceptional results continued with volunteers noticing 72% hair reduction on their bikini line and 83% hair reduction on their lower leg 1 week after completing the initial 12 week treatment regime.
This study shows that by following our treatment regime, users experienced significant hair reduction.
100% less hair on the treated area (lower leg and bikini area)*
94% experienced noticeable/ visible permanent hair reduction*
96% would recommend to a friend*

Long Term results
Of course we understand that IPL may not offer 100% permanent hair removal, however, we know we can permanently reduce the amount of hair growth significantly which can make such a big difference to a person’s life and confidence. We also understand that beauty therapy takes time so we recommend an initial 12 week regime to reduce the hairs in the treated area significantly and then to treat once a month as required to be continuously hair free.
What to expect from the regime: We advise a treatment schedule of once a week for 12 weeks followed by monthly maintenance treatments as required. Sticking to the regime can be difficult, but we offer plenty of help and support during the whole process. The reason we suggest a 12 week regime is because hair grows in cycles and can only be successfully treated during the growth phase.
How it works
People have different hair colour, texture and thickness and so results will vary. Everybody is different so do not worry, just focus on your treatments and follow our hints and tips to make sure you get the best results possible.*

*The SmoothSkin Gold is intended for use on naturally black or brown hair. It is not as effective on white, grey, blonde, or red hair. The SmoothSkin Gold incorporates two Skin Tone Sensors that measure the colour of your skin and will prevent use if your skin is too dark.
Our bodies are changing all the time which makes our mission of permanent hair reduction even harder. We may not be able to guarantee 100% permanent hair removal, but don’t stress about those unwanted hairs, we’ll do our very best in helping you get that silky smooth skin you desire.
