IPL is safe for use on the bikini line, but it isn’t suitable for the genital area where the skin may have a darker colour and where there is a greater hair density, which would absorb more light energy and may cause discomfort.

M2 is safe for use on the face below the cheekbones. It shouldn’t be used near the eyes and along the forehead. It works effectively on the upper lip, chin and jawline. We recommend doing a patch test before use.

We recommend avoiding exposure to artificial light sources, such as tanning booths or solariums. Avoid any activity or skin products that may irritate your skin for 24 hours after treatment. This includesusing hot tubs or saunas, wearing tight-fitting clothing, using bleaching creams, perfumed products or peeling products. The above may cause irritation, such as itching and redness, in the treated areas.

After treatment, we recommend using sunscreen SPF 15 whenever treated areas may be exposed to the sun.

As the product has not been tested among these groups it should not be used.
Do I need to use gels or buy replacement lamps?
M2 works without the need of additional lotions or gels and there is no need to purchase replacement lamps like with other devices.
Do I need to wear goggles?
We suggest to wear goggles when using M2. Although the skin contact sensors ensure that the device can only be triggered when in contact with the skin and the light visible during treatment is perfectly safe.
