IPL stands for (intense pulsed light) and it is a form of light therapy, similar to laser, it is used for various dermatological procedures including hair removal.
As with all light based hair removal treatments, our IPL handset works by emitting a wavelength which targets pigment in the hair. As the light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair it turns to heat which then kills the hair growth cells. Hair will grow back more sparse and slower after each treatment, reducing hair growth overtime.
There have been many clinical studies conducted that demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular option for safe and effective method of hair removal at home and in clinics.
Our handset also ensures that all UV wavelengths are filtered by blocking wavelengths below 470 nm from the IPL spectrum. This is standard among most IPL systems. This is done to prevent the light doing damage to the outer layer of the skin, this means your handset will never cause long term complications caused by UV exposure such as skin cancer, skin aging and etc.
IPL is suitable for all but the darkest skin tones. This is because the light energy may be more attracted to the pigments in the skin rather than the melanin in the hair. Refer to the skin tone chart below to see whether or not IPL is suitable for you.
Most customers begin to see a noticeable reduction of hair growth after just 3-4 weeks, with treatments done once a week, and complete results after 12 weeks. The hair will grow back more sparse and slower after each treatment eventually turning into a permanent reduction in hair growth. To maintain hairless smooth skin after that, use the handset once every 2 to 3 months for a touch up or as needed. Results and treatment length needed may vary from person to person.
According to the FDA, permanent hair removal means the “long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing after a treatment regime.” Which is what our handset provides! But this may differ from the average interpretation of ‘permanent’. Remember even in-clinic laser is not fully permanent. In any case, if you don’t mind just one touch up every 3-4 months after the full treatment is complete, then I’d say it’s a pretty darn good deal!!
Our Handset offers extremely long lasting results however no form of laser or IPL hair removal is permanent, even at the clinics. Just be careful when companies claim “permanent” hair removal, as this term technically means that there will be no regrowth of hair for 6 months. To maintain long-term results we advise using our Handset once a week for 8 weeks, then just once every few months for maintenance.
We are currently working on a demonstration video which isn't far away!
1) Plug the handset in and click the green button on the back to turn it on.
2) The green button is also used to switch through the intensity levels (1 for low - 5 for high).
The blue lights on the front will indicate the intensity level.
3) Make sure your intensity level is set to 1 if it is your first session.
For the best results, you should use your handset on the highest possible intensity level that isn’t painful. We recommend gradually increasing the intensity level after each session if the experience was not painful.
4) To use, ensure that the light window is completely flat against the skin. The pink light will begin to blink once you’ve placed the light window onto your skin. This indicates that the handset is ready to be used.
The handset has a sensor and will not flash unless the light window is in direct contact with your skin. If it is not in direct contact with your skin, the pink light will stay illuminated and the handset will not flash.
5) Click the Pulse button. Continue this over multiple areas until finished. Lift the head slightly after each pulse to avoid overheating.
For stubborn areas, we recommend that you treat the area up to 2 times per week and to try a higher intensity.
6) Press and hold the green button on the back to turn it off. Always disconnect device from the electricity supply when finished.
We recommend using your handset once a week for the first 12 weeks. After this period use your handset once a month, for 3 months or until satisfied. To maintain hairless smooth skin, use your handset once every 2 to 3 months, or as needed. There is no need to use it more than once a week, as IPL is only effective in the growing phase of your hair cycle.
If you are struggling to see results, try a higher intensity and use your handset 2 times per week (never more). Do this until you see some results, then you can reduce your frequency back to once per week.
Yes, you should shave the desired areas before using your handset. A close to skin shave is best recommended. The goal is for the light energy to reach the hair follicle as quickly as possible, so shaving beforehand is essential to achieve the best results. The hair follicle does need to be in tact for IPL to be effective. This means no waxing, plucking, threading, epilating etc.
We recommend starting at the lowest intensity and working your way up each session, if you get uncomfortable and/or get marks that last longer than a couple days it means that intensity is too high for you and the one below it should work best.
With Stamp Mode each individual click of the pulse button causes a flash.
This is the default mode on your Handset, it is perfect for precision areas like the underarms, bikini area and face.
Hold down the pulse button and glide the handset across your body your handset will automatically flash every half second. Please lift handset after each flash to cool the bulb.
Perfect to quickly and precisely treat areas such as your arms and torso.
Hold down the pulse button away from your skin until all indicator lights are blinking. This will make the handset flash every half second it is in contact with your skin, without clicking anything. Please lift handset after each flash to cool the bulb. To disable, hold down the pulse button until the lights stop blinking.
Perfect to quickly and effortlessly treat your legs.
To clean your handset, disconnect the device from the electricity supply. Wipe with a clean, dry cloth and 70% alcohol. Never use acetone or other abrasive fluids, because they will damage your device. Then use a wipe to dry the device.
Never immerse your handset or any of its parts in water.
You should not use IPL over very dark freckles or moles, however light freckles are fine. If you have an area you wish to treat that has dark freckles or moles, it is recommended to color over them with a white pencil if possible.
No, it isn't necessary to wear eye protection while using our handset. Our handset is fitted with a sensor and will never pulse unless the entire flash window is pressed against your skin. This is to protect your eyes from the bright light produced from the handset. That being said you should never try and look directly into the light as it flashes.
We recommend waiting 2 weeks before using your handset if you have recently tanned. Also, you should wait 48 hours to tan after using your handset. This is because your skin may be more sensitive to burns directly after IPL treatment. Any form of artificial tan should not be on your skin while using your handset.
Otherwise please check this list to make sure you are using the device correctly.
Possibilities for painful experience with the SirenBeauty IPL Handset:
- You have recently been exposed to the sun. We recommend staying out of strong sun exposure for 2 weeks before using our Handset.
- Your skin tone is darker than the recommended tones. Please check the skin tone chart on our website.
- You are using it at an intensity level that is too high for your skin. We always recommend starting with level 1 intensity to see how your skin reacts, if you had no adverse reactions or discomfort, you can gradually increase the level after each week of sessions. If you feel discomfort go back to a lower intensity.
- You have not shaved first. We always recommend shaving first because the IPL Handset may burn long hairs and it won't be effective to target the hair root if the hair is too long.
- You are pressing down to hard on your skin, causing your skin to get in direct contact with the bulb.
- You are not lifting the Handset after each flash. Doing this could harm the device and yourself. We recommend slightly lifting the Handset after each flash to allow for cool air to cool down the quartz bulb.
- You are using the device on the same spot multiple times per session. We recommend only one pass over each spot then moving to a new spot, otherwise you could be harming your skin and the device.
- You applied a cooling gel, lotion or any other type of applicant before treatment. We don't recommend using any lotion or ointment before treatment, our device is meant to be used without one.
