COOSEON® IPL hair removal devices come with different intensity levels, and you must choose the right one based on your skin type and hair color. Darker skin tones require lower intensity levels to avoid skin damage.
Do a Patch Test
Before using an IPL hair removal device on a large area, always do a patch test on a small area to check for any allergic reactions or skin irritation. Wait for 24 hours after the patch test to see if there are any adverse effects.
Shave the Treatment Area
Before using the IPL hair removal device, shaving the treatment area to remove any hair above the skin's surface is important. Ensures that the IPL light targets the hair follicles under the skin and not the hair above the skin, which can cause burns.
Avoid Sun Exposure
Avoid sun exposure before and after using the IPL hair removal device. DO NOT use the IPL device on sunburned skin can cause burns and other adverse effects
Use Eye Protection
IPL technology emits a bright light that can harm your eyes. Always remember the eye protection goggles that come with the device to protect your eyes during the treatment.
