The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use is a handheld device that uses IPL (intense pulse light) to destroy hair at the root for long-lasting or even permanent hair removal. The unit provides the same technology utilized by doctors and aestheticians, but users can now achieve hair removal results in the comfort and privacy of their own home. This provides a significant cost and time savings to the user.
By using the Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use over multiple sessions, the hair is eventually prevented from growing back. While at least four or five treatment sessions are recommended before results are typically seen, permanent hair loss can be achieved, even in stubborn growth areas, resulting in smooth, hair-free skin.
The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use is designed for use on multiple body parts, including the underarms, legs, arms, back, chest, and bikini line. The small treatment head area makes the device particularly well suited for limited areas difficult to treat with larger devices, such as the underarms and bikini line.

How to Use
The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use is easy for anyone to use:
1. Shave the area to be treated.
2. Put on safety goggles (included).
3. Turn on the unit power.
4. Set the level of intensity for intense pulsed light therapy based on user comfort and stubbornness of the hair to be removed (may need to be adjusted for different areas of the body).
5. Depress the trigger. The unit will flash as it works.
6. Use the built-in display to see how many flashes remain (80,000 flashes total are available with the device).
6. Slide the unit along the skin, making sure the unit completes one area before moving to the next.
7. Apply the unit in a methodical way, such as following a grid pattern, so as not to miss any areas.
8. Repeat as needed to treat all hairs in the treatment area throughout the entire growth cycle.
Duration of Treatment
The duration of treatment with the Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use depends on the individual’s hair color, the part of the body being treated, and the stubbornness of the hair being removed.
The manufacturer reports most users see results in four or five treatments, with permanent results sometimes taking longer. All hairs during the entire growth cycle must be treated for complete permanent hair removal. Many users report softer, finer hair growing in after a few sessions. Some users see progressively longer periods of time between growth cycles, while others eventually see permanent hair loss.
Who Can Use
The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use can be used by both men and women, as well as by teenagers when supervised by an adult. IPL technology works best with dark hair and lighter complexions. It will not work well on darker skin tones or very tanned skin, nor will it work on red, blond, grey, or white hair.

Parts of the Body

The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use comes with safety goggles to protect the eyes during use.
The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use is designed to provide painless hair removal. Some users report a slight stinging sensation when the unit is activated, but it is typically reported as a rubber band slapping against the skin. This sensation is completely normal.
Different areas of the body may tolerate different levels of intense pulsed light. Users should reduce the intensity level using the unit controls if they experience discomfort at any time with the device.
The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use does not offer any replacement parts. The unit is designed to provide 80,000 flashes before it must be replaced. However, this is enough treatments to perform a complete hair removal treatment of the entire body.
The Ivation Pro Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System for Home Use uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to provide long-lasting or permanent hair removal on multiple body areas. IPL emits short bursts of monochromatic light that target the pigmented cells in hair follicles. The light causes a reaction at the hair root and destroys it beneath the level of the skin. This is why it works on stubborn growth areas over time with multiple sessions. Intense pulsed light therapy is different than laser therapy and is a treatment modality frequently used in spas, salons, and dermatologists’ offices. Given ample time, IPL can provide long-lasting or permanent results and hair-free areas for users.
