So you’ve just purchased our RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Handset – congrats!

Our best-selling product was designed to be used in the comfort of your own home, so you can get salon results without even leaving your bathroom. Using light hair removal technology, we created this IPL device for long lasting results with minimal effort.

We’ll breakdown how to use your brand new RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Handset, so you can enjoy long lasting, smooth, and silky skin in just 12 weeks.

In this quick guide we’ll give you a run down on how the device works and how to use it with detailed instructions, so you can add it own at home beauty routine.

What Exactly Is The RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Device? 

At a glance, this easy-to-use technology is an innovative IPL device that provides salon quality laser hair removal without the actual salon. Designed to fit perfectly in your hand, the RoseSkinCo IPL device offers the latest in at-home long-term hair removal. No gimmicks - just smooth fresh hairless skin without the need to leave your own home.

IPL works by sending out wavelengths of light energy to target pigments in the skin (in this case, the dark hair follicle). This creates a heating sensation which eliminates hair follicles, to prevent further hair growth production. 

For technology like this, many people would need multiple times to achieve the same results. But we know it’s not a convenient option for everyone, especially if you don’t live in area with a laser hair removal treatment facility. Plus – we know it can be super awkward to strip down in front of stranger!

With the RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Device you can use it any time at home and have full control of when and where you want to top up your laser hair removal treatment.

Many of our customers use their device before or after their regular skincare regimen, using the IPL laser over their targeted area before they run out the door or before they go to the bed for the night.

It’s all in your hands.

How To Use Your IPL At Home Using The RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Handset

Have your pristine RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Handset in your hands? Or curious how easy it is to use? 

Here’s where we break the how-tos down. 

So, you have your brand new RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Handset ready to be used. Now that you know how the technology works, we’ll be breaking down how to actually use the device.

Starting With A Shave

Don’t do away with your razor just yet. In fact, it’s actually a stellar sidekick when it comes to getting the best results out of your IPL treatment.

Shaving the hair protects your body from potential irritation. This is because the longer the hair the more opportunity to flare up when the IPL device flashes

The short follicle will also mean it’ll absorb the light more effectively so the closer the shave the better the results. Also, be sure to check that your skin is completely dry and free from gels or moisturizer.

And finally, make sure you read through all the enclosed safety precautions prior to using the handset.

Getting Comfortable Holding The Handset

Your RoseSkinCo IPL Hair Removal Handset has been ergonomically designed in order to fit snugly into the palm of either hand. 

You might want to adjust your grip and swap hands depending on whether you’d like to target your legs, arms, or bikini line. In which case it’s simply a matter of personal choice. The only requirement is that the light window must be on direct contact with the skin in order to flash.

Activating Your Handset 

Find a comfortable position near an electrical outlet and plug your device in. The green light indicates that it is ready to be turned on.

Click on the light to select a level that suits your tolerance level. If it’s your first time using an IPL treatment, we suggest starting on the lowest setting and increasing the intensity once per week.

Don’t worry, the treatment isn’t painful, although the flash heat from the IPL does deliver a tingling sensation that some might like to get used to first.

If you’ve used IPL before and feel confident using the highest setting then we recommend doing so.

Just remember to always stick to a level that feels comfortable for you.

Using Your Handset 

All you need to do is place the light window flat against the part of your you want to treat. The pink light will blink indicating that the IPL device is ready for you. Then place the light window flat against the part of your body you want to treat.

Once you’re in position, tap the ‘pulse’ button. You’ll notice a slight flash, indicating that the area has been treated.

From there you simply lift the handset and apply it further down on the areas you want to treat, however try not to go over the same area twice in a single session to avoid irritation. 

Some stronger hair follicles can be stubborn, in which case, we recommend showing them who’s boss and using a higher intensity level or using your handset twice per week over these areas.

Turning Off & Cleaning Your Handset

Finished covering your treated area? Tap and hold the green light to turn the device off and store it securely in a cool dry area away.

You may want to wipe your handset clean, in which case, use a dry cloth and 70% alcohol (not acetone or abrasive fluids). 

And you’re all done! It’s just that easy!


How Often You Should Use Your IPL Hair Removal Handset?

This is entirely up to you, however we recommend using your handset once a week for the first 12 weeks. If you’re eager for faster results the device is safe to use twice per week.

The great news is following that period you should only need to use the handset once a month for 3 months or until you feel satisfied with the result.

Touch ups can also be done whenever you notice any regrowth. 

Why do I need to use at-home IPL more than a salon IPL?

This is because the IPL wavelengths used in salons is of a slightly higher frequency than what is used safely in at-home handsets. 

Fun fact - the full treatment time for at-home IPL is actually shorter than most salon schedules, because clinical treatments usually require 6-10 week intervals between visits, and approximately 6-8 treatments for a single area (that can work out to be over 10 months in many cases!). 

Just another reason why an at-home RoseSkinCo IPL Laser Hair Removal Handset is the ideal option for long term hair removal.

How smooth you’d like your skin to be is entirely up to you and your treatment preferences.

In fact, if you need a little more convincing about IPL vs other hair removal methods check out our blog on the benefits of IPL versus the routine of regular shaving.

TIP: And don’t forget to take pictures of the treatment prior to shaving. Being able to look back and see where you started is a super satisfying way to help you track your results as the weeks progress.


How To Use The 3 Different Modes On Your Device

Did you know that hair grows differently on each parts of your body? You can thank your hormones for that. For instance, thick body hair is made up of androgens, a hormone both men and women share. Men have slightly more androgens, which is why they grow hair more quickly. But everybody is different, which is why we created 3 modes to help simplify the process.

Stamp Mode

The default setting on your handset and the ideal way to treat precision areas such as under arms, bikini area and face.

With this mode, each click of the ‘pulse’ button causes flash. You then shift the handset location as you move around the treatment area.

Glide Mode

Larger areas such as the arms and the torso require a more sustained action and so we invented ‘Glide Mode’. Simply hold down the ‘pulse’ button and glide the machine slowly over the treatment area. The handset will do the rest, flashing every half second.

This is ideal for when you’re on the run but want to incorporate your hair removal process into your regular beauty routine. 

Auto Mode

Perfect for when you feel confident that you have mastered you IPL routine or when you want to quickly treat areas such as your legs and arms. 

Hold down the ‘pulse’ button away from your skin. You’ll soon notice all the indicator lights start to flash, meaning the device is in auto mode and will flash every half second that it is in contact with your skin. Remember to lift the handset after each flash to cool the bulb.

Then hold down the ‘pulse’ button again to disable auto mode. 

IPL Tips & Tricks

  • IPL is only effective when the hair follicle is in place and hasn’t been removed by waxing or epilation, so avoid undergoing these procedures prior to any IPL treatment.
  • Using a strong SPF sunscreen is always a good idea but we definitely recommend it as a precaution if you’re going into the sun after an IPL treatment.
  • If you’re using the device on a small part of your body (such as your bikini line, face or armpit) We recommend using ‘Stamp Mode’. For larger areas (such as legs, arms and torso) be sure to use the ‘Glide Mode.
  • Remember to lift the head of the device after each ‘pulse’ to avoid overheating.
  • If your skin often experiences redness and irritation after shaving, we recommend shaving the night before your IPL treatment.
  • Moisturize afterwards to maintain your skin’s hydration..      

Safety Advice

At RoseSkinCo we ensure that every one of our IPL hair remover handsets is safe to use for everyone, however there are few key tips to keep your handset in top condition and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for you.

  • Avoid using your at-home IPL device near your eyes (only below your cheekbones).
  • Do not use your IPL device in or around water.
  • Avoid using if pregnant. 
  • The device should only be use for users aged 16 and over.
  • If you have tattoos, make sure it’s securely covered with using an IPL device.               
  • Avoid using on broken or burnt skin.

 We don’t subscribe to the old aged saying of ‘too good to be true’ because we know that being good is about being true. That’s why we stand by the performance of our handset with a 90-day guarantee and full-refund if you’re not completely satisfied.

However, we fully acknowledge that the IPL isn’t ideal for every skin tone and hair colour. If you are curious if IPL is right for you we created a great skin tone and hair colour guide for IPL to help you figure out whether the RoseSkinSo IPL handset is right for you.
