How It Works
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) technology is a more affordable and less painful hair removal method than laser hair removal treatments at the clinic. It emits wavelengths that target the pigment in hair called melanin. The pigment helps the hair absorb the light emitted from the flashes, and weakens the hair follicle preventing hair growth. This leaves you with smooth, hair-free skin.
Steps to Prepare & Use:
- Shave only, the area to remove the hair. Do not wax or epilate.
- Turn on the NKDGlow device.
- Select the intensity for your skin tone. We recommend start with Intensity 1 and work your way up to what is suitable and comfortable for your skin.
- Press the ‘flash’ button.
- Move to the next spot!
Note: Device will not flash if it is not touching the skin. We have embedded a sensor to only flash when in contact with skin.
To see positive results from the get-go, use it once every week for the first four treatments. After that, you should only need to do minor touch ups every 4-8 weeks.
Manual and Auto Mode
Manual Mode: For smaller areas, click the “flash” button, one at a time.
Auto Mode: For larger areas, Hold down the flash button and glide over skin, the device will flash automatically as long as it is touching the skin.
Hair Color Chart
The IPL light is absorbed by melanin which is present in light brown to black hair color. There is little to no melanin in grey, blond or red hair, which is why it would not be effective on those hair colors.
Skin Color Chart
This device can be used on all skin tones except deep skin tones due to the nature of the light targeting the melanin. Melanin is present in the skin as well and the light is absorbed by the melanin. This may cause irritation on the skin instead of targeting the hair.
