In this section you will find all the answers to Frequently Asked Questions about IPL Pulsed Light and its use at home.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and has gained widespread popularity for the many benefits it affords the user. This modern technology aims to remove unwanted hair, slow the aging process by reducing wrinkles and perfect the skin tone by treating blemishes. Multiple uses of IPL also increase collagen production in the skin, leaving you glowing from the inside out! Due to IPL’s diverse range of uses and proven results, IPL is a must for anyone wanting to look and feel their best.
There have been numerous worldwide studies that demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular safe at home treatment.
We always advise that you exercise caution when treating yourself as not everyone is suitable for IPL treatments. Due to the level of melanin in the skin, some darker skin types will not be able to use IPL. The same applies if you have a recent tan. Additionally, we advise to check with your doctor first if you are taking medication that may make your skin sensitive to light. People with Epilepsy should not use this product as the IPL has a bright flash.
IPL Pulsed Light is 100% painless and compared to other treatments such as Laser, Waxing etc. IPL technology is much more tolerable and less invasive.
IPL is a form of light therapy. It emits a series of different wavelengths that scatter within the skin reaching various depths. Depending on its use, it will provide the user with the desired results – whether that be reduction of blemishes, pigment, wrinkles or hair! It is a very versatile technology.
IPL relies on melanin in the hair absorbing the light energy, and therefore IPL is not effective on very light blonde, red, or grey colored hair.
Most customers begin to notice a reduction of hair after just 3-4 treatments, with complete results after 12 treatments. However, results vary from person to person.
You can use your handset on your entire body, including your Brazilian and face (just be sure to not get too close to your eyes)
Nope! Inside the package you will find the 4D Shaver specifically designed to avoid cuts, burns and pain of the razor blade, which you can pass over any area interested in the treatment.
Between treatments you should only shave when required. You should never wax, pluck, or epilate as these hair removal methods removes the entire root, which is what absorbs the light during the treatment.
IPL is suitable for all but the darkest skin tones. Refer to the skin tone chart below to see whether or not IPL is suitable for you. The Emerald is suitable for skin tones fair to warm tan. If you have a skin tone of warm tan, we do advise to only use on Intensitylevel 1 and start by patch testing the Emerald on Intensity level 1. Emerald advises for everyone to start on Intensity level 1 and to always patch test before starting your treatments and when changing intensity level.
Although there is no evidence showing that IPL has negative effects on pregnant or breastfeeding women, we still don’t recommend using our handset as a precaution.
