The Rio Professional Intense Pulsed Light hair remover uses the latest Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to give long term hair removal. Placed gently against the skin, pulses of intense light from the long life quartz bulb are delivered directly to the hair follicle with enough energy to destroy the root without affecting the surrounding area. The treatment is very quick, for example it only takes a couple of minutes to treat the underarm area. Periodic treatments every four to six weeks are required to ensure that there is no hair regrowth. IPL hair removal is ideal for fast and efficient long term results, for use on the legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, chest and certain areas of the face within the area illustrated by the white dotted line (below right), leaving your skin beautifully smooth and without a hair in sight. The Rio Professional IPL hair remover should not be used around the eyes or on the lips.
