area. In this way the safety ring can be pressed more easily onto the skin,
which makes the treatment easier to perform.
Note: The reflected light does not harm your eyes. If the scattered light is
unpleasant, close your eyes when you release a flash.

Using the appliance on the face (upper lip, chin, sideburns)

Check the recommended light intensities table in chapter 'Preparing for
use', section 'Setting the light intensity' to see which settings are suitable for
your face (upper lip, chin, sideburns).
Always use only the facial attachment to treat the upper lip, chin and
sideburns. Never use the appliance around the eyes or near the eyebrows.
When you treat your upper lip, chin or sideburns, make sure you do not
expose your face to direct sunlight in the 24 hours following the treatment.
Apply a sunblock (SPF 30+) after the treatment for the next two weeks
when you expose your face to direct sunlight.
Tip: To achieve optimal results on your upper lip, chin and sideburns stand in
front of a mirror to get a good view of the area to be treated and the 'ready to
flash' light.
Tip: Apply a thick layer of white eyeliner to your lip and lip margin. This white
line ensures the energy of the flash is reflected and does not touch your lip if
you flash the lip unintentionally.
Tip: Because of the contours of the jaws, it may be difficult to bring the safety
ring into full contact with the skin and to release a flash. Put your tongue
between your teeth and upper lip or puff up your cheeks to make this easier.
Tip: The reflected light does not harm your eyes. If the scattered light is
unpleasant, close your eyes when you release a flash.

How to achieve optimal results

It is normal that hairs are still visible after the first few treatments (see
chapter 'Introduction', section 'Working principle' for more information).
To remove all hairs successfully and prevent the hair follicle from
becoming active again, the treatments have to be repeated once every
two weeks for the first two months. Your skin should be smooth by
then. Please read section 'Maintenance phase' to find out how you
can keep these results.

Maintenance phase

To ensure that your skin stays smooth, we advise you to repeat the
treatment every 4 to 8 weeks. The time between treatments may vary
based on your individual hair regrowth and also across different body
areas. If too many hairs grow back between treatments, simply shorten
the treatment interval again, but do not treat any area more often than
once every two weeks. When you use the appliance more frequently
than recommended, you do not increase the effectiveness but you do
increase the risk of skin reactions.
