The time can vary depending on the area of the body being treated. A full body treatment (legs, arms, armpits, bikini zone and face below the cheekbones) takes approximately 26 minutes.

4. Is the beurer SalonPro System safe?
The beurer SalonPro System was developed with a strong focus on your safety and employs clinically tested technology. However, this device – like any other product or electronic device intended for application on the skin – must be used in accordance with the instructions for use and the safety notes for users.
5. Is using the beurer SalonPro System painful?
When used correctly, most users of the beurer SalonPro System report a slight warm feeling when the light pulse is issued. Users with thicker and darker hair could feel slightly more discomfort, but this should subside once the hair removal session is finished. The beurer SalonPro System features six energy level settings that you can select according to your sensitivity.
6. How often should I use the beurer SalonPro System?
In the case of body hair treatment with the beurer SalonPro System, the first four sessions should be performed two weeks apart. The fifth to seventh sessions inclusive can be performed four weeks apart. Any further sessions should be performed if the hair has grown back until the desired results have been achieved.
In the case of treatment of hair on the face below the cheekbones, the first six sessions should be performed two weeks apart. The seventh to twelfth sessions can be performed four weeks apart. Any further sessions should be performed if the hair has grown back until the desired results have been achieved.
7. Is the beurer SalonPro System effective on white, grey or blond hair?
The beurer SalonPro System works best on dark hair types and on hair with a high melanin content. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair and skin its colour and absorbs light energy. Black and dark brown hair shows the best response. Brown and light brown hair also responds to treatment, but it usually requires more hair removal sessions. A limited effect can be seen on red hair. White, grey or blond hair does not usually respond to the beurer SalonPro System, although several users have noticed results after multiple hair removal sessions.
8. Can I use the beurer SalonPro System on brown or black skin?
Do not use the beurer SalonPro System on naturally dark skin! It does not work! The beurer SalonPro System is a light-based device that removes undesired hair by means of the selective treatment of the hair pigment. A different amount of pigment is present in the surrounding skin tis-
sue. The amount of pigment in the skin of any given person – which can be seen by the colour of the skin – determines the degree of risk that the person is exposed to when using the beurer SalonPro System. Treating dark skin with a light-based hair removal procedure can have adverse consequences, such as burns, blisters or discolouration of the skin (hyper- or hypopigmentation). The beurer SalonPro System features an integrated skin colour sensor, which measures the colour of the treated skin at the beginning of every treatment session and occasionally during the session itself. The skin colour sensor prevents the beurer SalonPro System from issuing further pulses if it detects that the device is being used on darker skin tones.
9. When will I see the results of the beurer SalonPro System?
As with all other hair removal devices that are based on light or lasers, the results cannot be seen immediately and you could even think that nothing has happened at all. After a hair removal session, the hair sometimes appears to grow back, but normally, the majority of these hairs will simply fall out after two weeks. Additionally, hair grows in three different stages and the beurer SalonPro System only has an effect on the hairs in the active growth phase. This is one of the main reasons why multiple sessions are necessary to achieve the desired result.
10. Can men use the beurer SalonPro System?
Although the beurer SalonPro System was developed for women, the device is also suitable for use by men. However, men's hair – typically on the chest – will require more hair removal sessions than women do to achieve the desired result.
