As with all light based treatments, IPL works by emitting a wavelength into the skin, which in the case of hair removal targets pigment. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. It quickly turns to heat which then kills the growing cells that make the hair.
There have been many clinical studies conducted that demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular option for safe and effective method of hair removal at home and in clinics.
Due to the nature of IPL relying on melanin to target the hair follicle, it is not effective on very light blonde, red, or grey coloured hair. For blonde hair the treatment may take longer to take effect but will work with time and consistency, any shade darker will work perfectly!

No, it isn't necessary to wear eye protection while using our handset. Our handsets are fitted with a sensor and will not pulse and light unless the entire window is pressed against your skin. That being said you should never try and look directly into the light as it flashes.
We recommend waiting 2 weeks before using your handset if you have recently tanned. Also, you should wait 48 hours to tan after using your handset. This is because your skin may be more sensitive to burns directly after IPL treatment. Any form of artificial tan should not be on your skin while using your handset.

painful experience with RoseSkinCo IPL Handset:
- You have recently
been exposed to the sun. We recommend staying out of strong sun exposure for 2
weeks before using our Handset.
- Your skin tone is
darker than the recommended tones. Please check the skin tone chart on our
website or in your user guide.
- You are using it
at an intensity level that is too high for your skin. We always recommend
starting with level 1 intensity to see how your skin reacts, after 2 sessions
you can gradually increase the level each couple of sessions if you feel discomfort go back to a lower intensity.
- You have not
shaved first. We always recommend shaving first because the IPL Handset may
burn long hairs and it won't be effective to target the hair root if the hair
is too long.
- You are not
lifting the Handset after each flash. Doing this could harm the device and
yourself. We recommend slightly lifting the Handset after each flash to allow
for cool air to cool down the quartz bulb.
- You are using the
device on the same spot multiple times per session. We recommend only one pass
over each spot then moving to a new spot, otherwise you could be harming your
skin and the device.
- You applied a
cooling gel, lotion or any other type of applicant before treatment. We don't
recommend using any lotion or ointment before treatment, our device is meant to
be used without one.

Petal is great for treating acne prone skin! Since the RoseSkinCo Petal gives you such a deep clean it can truly help target the underlying issues that cause acne and slowly can help give clearer and softer skin!
The Petal is not meant for make up removal, it is meant for a deep clean. The pulsing function is used to push your cleanser deep into your skin to clean out your pores and massage your face. Using it with makeup on will only push the make up into your pores and possibly cause breakouts as the make up will be pushed deep into your skin.
