Getting to Know an IPL Device
How To Use An IPL Device Instructions
Please shave off the hair from the skin surface that you are planning on treating. Please do this before anything else.
Make sure your skin is clean and you don’t have products on the skin surface prior to use.
Plug in the power adapter to a powerpoint and plug the other end to your device.
On your screen, the word “OFF” will pop up, this is normal. Just push the power button down for a few seconds.
You can now click the power button once at a time to switch between intensity level 1 to 5 and back down to 1 (it is highly recommended you start off with intensity level 1 in your first treatment, and in your second treatment adjust the intensity according to your experience).
When you place the device directly flat against your skin, the ‘Number of flashes Remaining’ figure should start blinking, this is normal. You can now click the flash button to emit a flash.
For large body areas and faster treatment, you can hold down the flash button until the three diamond icon pops up on the screen. This is called the automatic mode. This means that every time you place the device directly onto your skin, it will automatically flash and you can slide down your skin for continuous automatic flashes. Hence for a faster treatment (please ensure to only use this setting for large body areas). Or hold the flash button to go back to the original manual flash mode.
You should only flash a specific area of the skin once per treatment. When your treatment is complete, press and hold the power button to switch off your device.
