1. Photoepilation at home is painfula?

When the indications of Masderm RF Photoepilation Device are followed, the treatment is completely painless. When the area is more sensitive or pigmented, it is possible to notice a slight stinging sensation or slight prickling, in this case you should lower the intensity when you apply the device in these areas.

2. The RF Photoepilation Device is suitable for my skin type and for my hairo?

Studies show that the device is very effective on most skin types, but when the skin tone is very dark it is not effective and we recommend not using it.

On the other hand, the RF Photoepilation Device uses the melanin of the hair to direct the energy of the pulsed light, for this reason it is not effective when the hair is light blonde, gray or red.

3. I can apply it on face and bodyo?

RF Photeepilation Device painlessly and effectively removes hair from the upper lip, groin, legs, arms and armpits (even back).

For more sensitive or pigmented areas such as the areolas or gaps in the pubic area, we recommend using the lowest intensity to avoid the stinging sensation.

We do not recommend using it in the area around the eye, that is, it is not suitable for plucking eyebrows.

Yes, you must shave with a razor before applying the device and now I'll explain why. RF Photoepilation works because the pulsed light (IPL) reaches the root of the hair. If we previously remove the hair, we facilitate the action of the device and the results arrive faster. Although any hair removal method is suitable, we recommend using the blade because the hair shaft is below the blade and facilitates the action of the pulsed light.

7. How should I prepare the skin before photoepilation?n?
