Rio Intense Pulsed Light Hair Remover
This at-home IPL Hair Remover uses Intense Pulsed Light 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 disable the hair root without affecting the surrounding area. The at-home 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 Remover is ideal for fast and efficient long term hair removal, for use on the legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, chest and certain areas of the face, leaving your skin beautifully smooth and without a hair in sight.

How to use
Step 1: 24 hours before you begin treatment check for any reaction by testing a small area of your skin, this patch test will confirm the maximum power level for your skin type.
Step 2: When you are ready, shave the area to be treated, this ensures that the light energy goes directly to the hair root and avoids hair burning on the surface.
Step 3: Turn the unit on, enter the security code, press the enable button then place the wand over the area you wish to treat. Ensuring the skin sensors are in contact with the skin press and hold the treatment button on the wand, this initiates the treatment flash.
Step 4: After the treatment flash the unit will self-check, move the wand to the next area to be treated and repeat the process. When you have finished your treatment, turn the unit off and store in a safe place away from children.
The timing for follow on treatments is not critical. We recommend treatments at 2 week intervals, although some people like to treat the area every week and others just once a month depending on personal preference and on where the treatment area is. As long as the hair follicle or surrounding skin is not red, sore or inflamed, treatment can be repeated after a minimum of 48 hours.
