Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is it painful to use GlowSkin?

A: Nope! You may experience a warming sensation, but IPL hair removal is a pain- free process!

Q: Can I use GlowSkin anywhere on my body?

A: Yes, GlowSkin is safe to use anywhere on the body including the sensitive bikini area and face. We do advise users to be extra cautious when using the product around their eyes.

Q: Will my results be permanent?

A: We will get you as close as we can, but unfortunately not even professionally administered treatments are really permanent. After your initial 6-12 week period using GlowSkin once a week, we recommend using the handset once every 3 months or so to maintain your results. 

Q: How long before will it take to see a difference?

A: Depending on which handset you buy and your hair growth it typically will take our clients 2-3 uses. On average you will see full results after 8-9 uses, but again this will vary from person to person. 

Q: Should I shave before using GlowSkin?

A: Yes, for better results we do recommend shaving the area you plan to use your handset before beginning your session. 

Q: Does GlowSkin work on all skin tones?

A: Unfortunately, GlowSkin's IPL technology has only been proven effective on fair to moderately dark skin tones. 

Q: Does GlowSkin work on all hair colors and types?

A: Yup! However it's important to note that if you have lighter hair you may require a few extra sessions to see full results. 

Q: Is it safe to use GlowSkin on my freckles or tattoos?

A: It is not recommended that you use GlowSkin on any dark freckles, moles, or tattoos. It is okay to use GlowSkin if you have lighter freckles or if you are working around a tattoo. 

Q: Is it safe to use GlowSkin before or after tanning?

A: Please allow for 2 weeks to pass after tanning to use your GlowSkin handset. If you used your handset recently, we recommend waiting at least 48 hours before tanning. 

Q: Can I use GlowSkin if I am pregnant or nursing?

A: Because there is no research to determine if using your handset while pregnant or nursing, we do not recommend using your GlowSkin handset during this time.

Q: Should I use eye protection while I use GlowSkin?

A: Eye protection is not necessary while using your GlowSkin handset, however, it is important that you do not look directly into the light as it flashes.
