Our Kuna Handset uses IPL (Intense Pulsed Light; A modern form of light therapy) that emits a series of wavelengths within the skin. The IPL works by heating and destroying the targeted hair cells resulting in long-term hair loss.
Absolutely! There have been numerous studies worldwide that prove the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular safe and effective method of hair removal.
We always advise that you are cautious when treating yourself as not everyone is suitable for IPL treatments. Due to the level of melanin in the skin, darker skin types will not be able to use IPL. The same applies if you have a recent tan. Additionally, we advise to check with your doctor first if you are taking medication that may make your skin sensitive to light.
It isn't mandatory that you wear eye protection while using your Kuna IPL, since our handsets are fitted with a sensor and will not flash unless the entire window is pressed against your skin. That being said, each device does come with a free pair of glasses which we recommend you use since it helps prevent vision glare.
You can use your Kuna IPL almost anywhere, except: scalp, eyebrows or anywhere near or around the eyes. Use in these areas may permanently damage your eyes. Please read our SAFETY WARNING being using your device.
Between treatments you should only shave when required. You should never wax, pluck, or epilate as these hair removal methods removes the entire root, which is what absorbs the light during the treatment.
IPL is suitable for all but the darkest skin tones. This is because the light energy may be more attracted to the pigments in the skin rather than the melanin in the hair. Refer to the skin tone chart below to see whether or not IPL is suitable for you.
If you have recently been tanning, we recommend waiting 2 weeks before using your handset. You should wait 48 hours to tan after using your handset. Artificial tan should not be on your skin while using your handset.
Cleaning of the Kuna handset is advised after each use. You can use an alcohol wipe, or any antibacterial product to clean down the handset and the light window after treatment. Ensure your handset is powered off, and not plugged in before doing so. You should then store the handset in a cool, dry place after use (once the handset is completely dry).
You actually have to be careful when anyone claims ‘permanent’ hair removal as all forms of IPL/Laser hair removal require some maintenance, or eventually the hair will start growing back. After completing your initial sessions with our handsets you will only have to use your handset once every 3 months to maintain smooth, hairless skin.
