Boots Smooth Skin hair removal system: what is it and how does it work?
Published September 2009
When used correctly, the Boots Smooth Skin provides long-lasting permanent hair reduction and offers you the flexibility to use it whenever and wherever you like. In trials, we found it takes approximately 10 minutes to treat underarm hair or the bikini line and an hour for the legs. Boots Smooth Skin is convenient and can be used from the comfort of your own home. Using the system for a typical 6 to 12 treatments will give the best results and help to achieve permanent hair reduction.
IPL is the most advanced form of light-based beauty therapies, which began with laser treatments more than a decade ago. iPulse technology uses less energy than conventional IPLs whilst providing the highest clinical performance.
Using the power of light to remove hair was originally discovered by accident. In 1979 the University of Wales' laser physicist, Professor Marc Clement, inadvertently exposed his forearm to a laser beam and discovered that his hair no longer grew in the exposed area. Professor Clement went on to develop the world's first hair removal lasers based on his discovery and became an established manufacturer of medical lasers. Recently, Professor Clement has joined forces with several world leaders in light sciences to create their company CyDen which developed iPulse technology.
