IPL is a form of heat and light therapy. Your skin will absorb the spectrum of light and convert it into heat. This heat stimulates cellular tissues to regenerate. IPL can penetrate into the second major layer of your skin - the dermis - without harming the first layer - epidermis - of your skin.
This is a powerful at-home IPL device that has a whopping 25 joules of strength. Use this 1-2x per week to help improve many common skin issues such as:
- Dark spots
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Hair removal or reduction
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is sometimes referred to as a laser treatment - but it is not a laser. The difference between an IPL and a laser is that a laser will only use one wavelength of light while IPL releases a variety. This makes IPL an ideal modality to choose when you want to treat more than one issue - without having to purchase multiple machines. Just select the cartridge that will treat your target.
Another benefit to using an IPL is the size of the treatment lamp. A laser has a very small head, while an IPL's is much larger. With the size of (.78" x 1.2") this machine will treat up to 220 hairs at a time.
Each wavelength will treat different skin issues.
- 400-700nm will treat Acne
- 550-900nm will rejuvenate the skin
- 640-900nm will remove hair
This unit will come to you with one cartridge selection - of your choice. Each cartridge has the potential to last about 3-4 years if you are using it 2-3x a week. The intensity of the level will have an effect on how many treatments that you will get. See the chart below to get an idea on how long you will get use of your cartridge.

Skin Rejuvenation Cartridge
VISS IPL Skin Rejuvenationtm is a great targeted treatment to address facial redness from rosacea, dark spots, melasma, pigmentation, loss of firmness, broken capillaries, large pores and mild acne. Most results can be seen within 1-2 months, but with deeper lines and long-standing issues, up to 6 months is average. We suggest that you alternate treatments with the IPL. The most powerful alternative would be a TCA chemical peel.
What to expect using VISS 2-3x per week *General guidelines. Results may vary based on skin condition.
- Visible results after a few treatments
- Skin tightening and becoming more tone
- Age spots lightening
- Surface broken capillaries fading after 3-5 treatments *deeper will be slower progression.
- Progressive improvement after completing 3 months of regular treatments
- Face - 12 weeks of treatment and then break for 4 weeks. Restart another 12 week program.

Acne Treatment Cartridge
VISS IPL Acne Treatmenttm is a great targeted treatment to address problematic acne. IPL light energy destroys acne bacteria in the pores of the skin. It also reduces the blood supply to the sebaceous gland and slows production. This is an excellent solution that can be used 2-3x per week to aid in controlling acne on the face and body. We suggest that you alternate treatments with the IPL. The most powerful alternative would be a Mandelic chemical peel.
What to expect using VISS 2-3x per week *General guidelines. Results may vary based on skin condition.
Avoid sun exposure when treating with IPL unit. Use SPF of 40-50 daily to protect skin 48 hours prior to and 24 hours after.
After treating follow with acne treatment products such as Vitamin B Complex or Nano Hyaluronic Serum. Another excellent option would be an evening application of Retinol .20 Molecular Serum to clear out the pores.
Hair Removal Cartridge
VISS IPL Hair Removaltm is a great targeted treatment to address any areas on the face or body where you have unwanted hair. IPL light energy destroys the hair follicle, and after a few months you will have visible hair growth reduction. Instead of daily shaving and waxing, this is an excellent solution that can be used 2-3x per week to aid in controlling hair growth.

At-Home IPL Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is this IPL unit suitable for me?
There are 8 intensity settings with the VISS Advanced IPL unit. This allows the majority of skin tones to be able to do procedures. All skin tones Fitzpatrick 1-5 are eligible as well as those with dark blonde to black hair for the hair removal. See our intuitive chart below for skin and hair coloring as well as our video.
2. Can men use this IPL unit as well? ... How about children?
Absolutely! We all have skin and we can all use the same treatments.
... How about children and teens?
With the younger crowd, the recommended age is those that are 14 years of age and older. Teens 15-18 can use the device with the consent or assistance of their parents/adult. Those 19 years of age and older can use the device freely.
3. Is an IPL device safe to use?
Yes, studies by the Washington Institute of Dermatological Laser Surgery have confirmed that low energy pulsed light can be applied safely and effectively for at-home hair removal in a variety of non facial locations and skin photo types (I-IV).
4. Can I use this anywhere on my body?
You can safely use the VISS IPL for hair removal anywhere below the cheekbone inclusing the arms, armpits, chest, back, bikini and legs (most common areas). Do not use this on mucus producing (intimate) areas. *See manual for full list of contraindications.
5. Will using the IPL hurt?
As long as you have selected the correct intensity setting according to your skin tone and hair color, the treatment should not be painful. You may feel a warm sensation or a light prickling. Begin using the lowest recommended setting, and when you are comfortable you may increase it. This should not be a painful experience at all.
6. Should I shave before I do the hair removal treatment?
Yes, you should always shave first. This ensures that the light follows the hair all the way down to the root. Any unshaved hair will burn. This will create an unpleasant smell and could damage your unit.
7. How often should I do my IPL treatments?
Each cartridge has its own treatment schedule to follow. Average times are:
- Hair removal - treat area 2x per week first month. Months 2-3 treat 1x every two weeks. Months 4+ treat 1-2x per month.
- Skin rejuvenation - treat area 2x per week. Months 2-3 treat 1x per week. Month 3, after 12 weeks stop using the unit for 4 weeks. You may then start 12 week program again.
- Acne treatment - treat area 1-2x per week months 1-3. You may stop using when acne is clear. Use as needed on active acne after-the-fact.
8. I used the hair removal treatment 1 week ago but my hair is still growing, why?
This is perfectly normal and is called ejection. Hair can appear to be growing for up to 2 weeks after your last treatment. At this point you will see they are actually falling out. *You may also run into hairs that were missed during your treatment. They would continue to grow as normal. Once your first hair cycle is over then your next one will begin. Keep on your treatment schedule so that you get all of the hair cycles treated.
9. Can I use this more than is suggested to get better results?
No. Using your IPL more than recommended will not speed up the efficacy and could lead to skin irritations. Remember, you own this and can use it for many years. Follow the schedule for best resuts.
10. How will I know when to replace the cartridge?
When the glass on your cartridge is getting too hot an dis causing pain/discomfort, it is time to replace it. You will get approximately 3+ years from a single cartridge if you are using this 2-3x per week on a single person.

Light based hair removal has been thoroughly reviewed and tested for over 15 years. Long-term use of light energy devices will not cause issues or side effects.
