Yes, this product will give you the same results you would get from a professional device. In physician-led clinical trials, the Lucentskin device demonstrated excellent hair removal results. The Lucentskin IPL device is FDA cleared approved for removing unwanted hair in men and women. The FDA does not require any other products or accessories to be used in conjunction with the Lucentskin to achieve desired results.
The amount of time for each hair removal session will differ depending on which part of the body you are treating. But, the Lucentskin device does not require batteries, so it can be used for any amount of time. Don’t feel rushed to treat your desired area – take the time you need.
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.
In order for our IPL treatment to work effectively, you must remove hair from the surface of your skin before you start your Lucentskin hair removal treatment – while still keeping the root of the hair intact.
That’s why we recommend shaving the hair, never waxing or tweezing it, or using depilatory hair-removal creams. These products remove the hair follicle, which can compromise your final results. If you have been waxing, plucking or using depilatory creams, give your hair two weeks to grow before you shave the treatment area and begin using your Lucentskin hair removal device.
If you don’t shave the hair before you begin treatment with your Lucentskin, the device will only remove the hair from the surface of your skin and not have a chance to reach the follicle. This may not lead to desired results. So, we always recommend using the device on freshly shaven skin. If you don’t feel comfortable shaving certain areas of your body (such as your face or other sensitive areas) we recommend clipping or trimming the hair as close to the skin as possible to prepare it for treatment. To do this, you can try using cosmetic scissors or an electric trimmer.
Yes, Lucentskin is safe to use on the face, but only below the cheekbones. We do not recommend you use the device on your eyebrows or hairline. But you can feel confident using it to safely remove hair from your upper lip!
The Lucentskin device also provides effective hair removal results for other sensitive areas on your face (below your cheekbones), including cheeks, sideburns, chin/jawline, and neck areas. Lucentskin is also safe to use for removing back hair and bikini line hair, always being sure to follow all directions.
We remind all our users to read the device manual before using your device. This will help you familiarize yourself with the treatments and technology.
Please avoid using the device directly on your lips. The color here is darker than the surrounding skin, which will attract more light and potentially cause unwanted side effects on your lips. For your safety, when treating this area, we recommend rolling your lips inward, or using white tape or a white cloth to cover them. This will help prevent accidental light flashes on the lips.
We don’t recommend individuals under the age of 16 use the IPL hair removal devices. The body undergoes a number of hormonal changes during adolescence, so treatments may be less effective at this time. There is no maximum age for adults who want to use the Lucentskin IPL, but treatments tend to have less of an effect on grey hairs.
One of the biggest advantages of IPL over other types of laser is that it is far less painful. Most customers explain the feeling as a warm sensation on the skin.
When using the handset as recommended, side effects are rare. Redness and swelling is the most common side effect from IPL, which will quickly subside after treatment.
No. This product is a once-off purchase. There is absolutely no need for replacements or refills.
You actually have to be careful when anyone claims ‘permanent’ hair removal as all forms of IPL/Laser hair removal require some maintenance, or eventually the hair will start growing back. After completing your initial sessions with our handsets you will only have to use your handset once every 3 months to maintain smooth, hairless skin.
