IPL Laser Hair Removal FAQ
What is IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light is a new method of laser hair removal to remove hair permanently or long-term.
Is IPL safe?
A: IPL is an effective and common method for hair removal. The Sleek Skin IPL product meets all safety regulations and has been clinically tested. However, we recommend that you check prior to purchasing whether you are suitable for IPL.
How does IPL work?
A: Light energy is absorbed by areas of the hair (high pigmented areas) and heats it up. The heat causes damage to the hair follicle which slows down hair growth and may even prevent it from growing again.
Can IPL be used on all hair?
IPL works on most hair types, although it may not be as effective on grey or light blonde colored hair. IPL is most effective on black or dark hair.
Can it be used on different skin types, freckles, and moles?
IPL is suitable for all but the darkest skin types. You should not use your device over very dark freckles or moles. IPL is fine to use over light freckles. All skin types should start on the lowest intensity setting.
Recommended minimum age for IPL?
We recommend customers to be 16 years or older before using our product.
How long until I see results?

Do I need eye protection?

What areas of my body can I use it on?
