Removing pubic hair with IPL

Step by step explanation

Take your time: One of the most important rules when removing hair from intimate areas with IPL is patience. A treatment at home with the Ruby Essentials IPL Genie does not take an excessively long time, but should not be carried out hastily. Thorough skin preparation is also essential to prevent skin irritation. Here are six important steps to follow for the best results when removing hair from the intimate area with IPL:

Tip: Do not use hair removal cream for this treatment as it may cause skin irritation.

Remove existing hair: Shave, pluck or wax the pubic hair first. Pubic hair removal with IPL works best when the skin is free of hair and the device can make direct contact with the skin.

Clean your skin: After removing all existing hair, cleanse the area thoroughly to remove excess natural oils and soap residue. Make sure the area is thoroughly dry.

Determine the correct setting: Use the Skin sensor of the IPL Genie to test your skin on the area to be treated the day before use. The IPL device then determines the correct light setting and intensity for your skin color.

Tip: IPL is not suitable for everyone. Make sure the product works for you before investing. IPL may not be effective for very light hair or very dark skin tones.

Choose the right attachment: The IPL Genie has six intelligent attachments that tailor their programs to each part of the body. There is also an attachment that has been specially developed for depilating the intimate zone. Consult the user manual for detailed information on which attachment to choose for which body part.

Turn on the device and place it on the skin: Follow the instructions to correctly place the IPL device on the skin. The IPL Genie will not begin treatment until there is full skin contact to avoid accidental light pulses.

Treat skin area: Continue this process on adjacent skin areas until your intimate area has been treated to your liking.
