What does IPL mean?
IPL – “Intense Pulsed Light” is a technology commonly used by cosmetic and medical practitioners for permanent and long-term HAIR REMOVAL. It also effectively performs various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes; including clearing dermatologic diseases such as ACNE (optional purchase); as well as revitalising SKIN REJUVENATION (Anti-aging).
What does our IPL actually do?
The Naked Skin Company IPL Hair Removal System is based on what is called “thermal damage theory”. This is where intense light energy penetrates the skin and targets the melanin in the hair follicle. The raised temperature of your melanin allows the hair cell and follicle to decompose and release your unwanted hair. Regular use of IPL will then further inhibit and prevent future hair regeneration. The ultimate solution to being rid of unwanted hair.
Is there proof that this technology works?
The efficiency and success of the therapy has been acknowledged by dermatologists extensively and has been scrutinised successfully in all clinical, scientific and medical research around the world. The safety and effectiveness of IPL treatment is backed by several worldwide studies, including Dr. David J. Goldberg's (USA) research published in 2012 in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. The Naked Skin Company handset achieves painless, faster and effective results whilst optimizing personal treatment in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

Most importantly IPL also provides a more effective and permanent solution to remove unwanted hair in comparison to other more uncomfortable methods such as shaving, plucking, epilators or waxing.
How often do I need to use it for and how soon can I expect seeing results?
You should use your handset only once a week for the first twelve (12) weeks. After this initial period, you may only need to use the treatment when you desire so as to inhibit further regeneration ie every 1-3 months / or until satisfied. Results do vary from person to person, most customers begin to see full results rapidly in the first two to three weeks.
Why Our IPL Handset lasts more years than any other device on the market?
The Naked Skin Company’s Premium IPL hand device is incomparably the best product on the market. Unlike other devices, our handsets offer a state-of-the-art new generation QUARTZ material lamp that delivers over 400,000 flashes. Nearly triple our competitors normal glass lamps and potentially provides up to 20 years of beauty care.
Most “at home’ IPLs have a limited lifespan. What happens when my Naked Skin Company IPL flashes runout?
All our lamps are replaceable giving you the ultimate cost-effective solution. Unlike other devices you can just replace the lamp when finished. So there is no need to discard your hard earned money on an expensive new device.
Why our advanced IPL “no waste” energy light technology saves you even more money?
Our CORE PATENTED “closed type” no-waste energy light technology, provides a deep flash window that not only makes our light source more concentrated but enhances the effect of hair removal. Other Low energy devices come short with shallow flash windows, easy to burn skin situations and most importantly poor hair removal that requires more flashes to see the job done.
Most “at home” IPL don’t have flash counters, does this one?
Our HIGH DEFINITION “Touch Screen LCD” display helps you count away each flash whilst effectively allowing you to count and administer each application without wasting unnecessary flashes.
Which areas of the body can I actually use my IPL handset on, and is my IPL power adjustable?
You can use the handset on most areas of your body (except for sensitive areas around your eyes). Our IPL also comes with two treatment modes (one for precision areas and the other for larger straight forward areas). Plus a unique 5 energy level gradient that allows you to adjust energy levels according to your different needs and parts of your body.
A patch test can always be applicated prior to any treatment commencing; whilst also utilising the device at its lowest energy levels. This will help give you an indication as to the likely efficacy of the IPL hair removal on any desired area.
On which part of the body should I not use my IPL on?
Do not use any IPL device on scalp, eyebrows or anywhere near or around the eyes. Using the device in these areas may damage the eyes. Never look directly at the light coming from the treatment area. Unlike other devices we provide you with salon grade custom made glasses to ensure your eyes protection.
If pigmented skin such as birthmarks, beauty spots, moles, freckles and warts, tattoos and permanent makeup are present in the area you want to treat, you can use an OPAQUE WHITE MAKEUP PENCIL to assist in covering them and then proceed to go around the areas These pencils are also available from the Naked Skin Company and are sold separately.
Ensure that you follow our safety precautions and instructions in our leaflet provided and enjoy permanent and painless hair loss and all other IPL benefits safely in the comfort of your own home.
Do I need to use any other hair removal methods before or during IPL treatments?
Immediately before treatment; we recommend that you shave any desired areas that you intend to IPL.
In between treatment periods; only shave when required.
Do not utilise methods such as plucking, epilating or waxing. Doing so would remove the entire hair root and leave your IPL device with no target or “hair root” to absorb light to and then destroy.
