Q: How does Boots Smooth Skin PLUS work?
A: The Boots Smooth Skin PLUS system uses a revolutionary technology formerly only used in salons and clinics called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). When used correctly, this will provide long-lasting hair reduction. IPL acts when a short and intense pulse of filtered light is directed into the skin. The amount of light supplied by the Boots Smooth Skin PLUS system is carefully controlled in order for the hair follicle to heat up enough to discourage it from growing again, without affecting the skin.
Q: Is it permanent?
A: Boots Smooth Skin PLUS is considered permanent hair reduction. This means that the successfully treated follicle should not produce any new hair. However, dormant follicles can produce new hair due to hormonal changes, so no IPL or laser system can claim total permanent hair removal.
Q: Why can't Boots Smooth Skin PLUS be used on darker skin tones?
A: Darker skin types have a considerable amount of pigment (melanin) and will absorb more light. This means that use of the Smooth Skin PLUS on darker skin tones may result in severe adverse reactions such as bruising, burning or blistering.
Q: Why can't Boots Smooth Skin PLUS be used after tanning?
A: Exposure to UV light increases melanin in the surface of the skin and therefore will enhance the natural colour. This sensitises the skin and allows higher absorption of the energy from Boots Smooth Skin PLUS into the skin, which could result in adverse reactions such as bruising, burning or blistering.
