How To Prepare For Your First At-Home Laser Hair Removal Session
If you have just purchased our Ice Cool IPL At Home Laser Hair Removal Device then - Congratulations! You have just taken your first step towards happy and hair free skin.
Listed below are the key steps for you to follow to make the most of the at home sessions.
You must complete a spot test for each area you wish to treat at least 48 hours before your session. A spot test will help you determine skin suitability and the intensity level/gears to use during your sessions.
(Please read the user manual for the operation, use and storage instructions)
1. Shave The Area(s) You Wish To Treat
Before you begin your session, wash the surface of your skin and carefully shave off all the hair using a razor. (Do not wax or use hair removal creams. The IPL must be able to detect hair follicles). Keep the surface of the skin dry and free from any oily substances such as body creams, body oils, etc. Do not apply condenser or aloe gel before using this IPL Handset.
2. Use The Protective Glasses
Wear your cool blue protective glasses provided in the box. These glasses are calibrated to match the wavelength of the Flash.
3. Prepare the Device
Plug in the device to the outlet and long press the Power button. Select your flash intensity and modes.
4. Get Flashing
Place the light window at a 90° angle to make sure that the skin is in full contact and flash away. One hair removal course on a specific part of your body is usually lasered over three times. For example, when using the IPL on your arm, first start by flashing the instrument once, part by part, all over your arm – then repeat this process for the second time and then again for the third time.
5. Stay Consistent
We recommend the following schedule for the best results:
- First 4 Weeks – 2 to 3 times a week
- 5th & 6th Week – Twice a week
- 7th & 8th Week – Once a week
- 8th week onward – 1-2 times a week as needed.
