SmoothSkin Gold is the latest IPL device for achieving a permanent reduction in unwanted hair. This fast and powerful device uses detect and set for safe and effective treatments. SmoothSkin Gold offers 120,000 flashes, enough for 15 years of treatment. Recommended by 96 percent of women who tried it (From an independently approved Clinical Study of 50 women). A 12 week regime should keep your skin continuously hair-free leaving you with flawless, silky smooth skin. Fast and Powerful with a large window and as little as 1 second between flashes, a full body treatment takes less than 20 minutes. SmoothSkin Golds light energy is transferred through the surface of the skin and is absorbed by the melanin present in the hair shaft. The absorbed light energy is converted to heat energy (below the surface of the skin), which disables the hair follicle preventing further growth. Treated hairs naturally fall out over the course of a few days to 1 to 2 weeks. Everyones hair is completely different. Different color, thickness and density means some people will see results faster than others and will experience hair removal at different stages. Depending on which areas you are treating the time can vary, but ultimately the SmoothSkin Gold is a fast and powerful home-use device giving you a unique beauty experience. The SmoothSkin Gold is intended for use on light, medium and dark skin tones up to and including skin tone 5. SmoothSkin Gold incorporates two Skin Tone Sensors that measure the color of your skin and will prevent use if your skin tone is too dark. SmoothSkin Gold is intended for use on naturally black or brown hair. It is not as effective on white, grey, blonde, or red hair. The Detect and Set feature ensures maximum safety by measuring skin tones in 10 levels.
