How does IPL work?
The SmoothSkin Bare+ works by transferring light energy through the skin's surface with 100 flashes per minute.
The melanin in the hair shaft absorbs the light energy, and this same light energy converts to heat energy below the skin's surface. This stops hairs from growing back.
How long does it take to work?
With a 100 flashes per minute, the Bare+ is the fastest IPL device on the market and you can expect to start seeing results in as little as 4 weeks.
How to use
Step 1: Shave the treatment area.
Step 2: Place the device onto the skin ensuring full contact.
Step 3: The device will scan your skin and only emit flashes if your skin tone is suitable.
Step 4: Select the Glide Mode and move the device continuously over the treatment area.
Step 5: Use the Stamp Mode to treat smaller areas such as the underarms.
Step 6: Apply moisturiser after your treatment.
We recommend you use your SmoothSkin device just once a week for 12 weeks and then top-up every 2-4 weeks to remain hair-free.
The device emits an ultra-fast 100 flashes per minute, meaning you can treat your whole body in as little as 10 minutes:
Full legs - around 9 minutes, underarms - around 30 seconds, bikini line - around 30 seconds, upper lip - around 10 seconds.
Why we love it
SmoothSkin Bare+ has two treatment modes to make your hair removal treatments more efficient. Using the Glide Mode emits continuous flashes letting you treat larger body areas, such as the legs, quickly and easily. Stamp Mode provides a more precise treatment suitable for smaller or sensitive areas.
We also love that the device has built-in safety features to ensure each treatment is safe and pain-free. The Smart Skin Sensor to check your skin tone before each flash, and will only activate if it’s safe to do so.
The device also has a Skin Contact Sensor which ensures full contact is made with the skin before emitting a flash, along with the built-in UV filter which protects your skin from harmful light.

Who Can Use SmoothSkin?
SmoothSkin is suitable for those with skin type I to V according to the Fitzpatrick Scale. It is not suitable for use on white, grey or red hair.
Since grey and white hair do not contain enough or any melanin, IPL treatment will never work on these hair colours. Red hair contains a different type of melanin, which is also not responsive to IPL.
SmoothSkin is also not suitable for very dark skin tones (VI on the Fitzpatrick Scale), as it can cause skin damage.
Loved by Tanya Burr
We've teamed up with Youtuber Tanya Burr, to help her on her journey to hair-free skin. Here's what she has to say about the SmoothSkin Bare+ so far...
"I've been using it on my legs, it's pain free and super quick."
The Smoothskin lives up to all its promises. It is amazingly reasonably priced, easy to use and now after I have had it for 15 weeks, using it each week on my legs, they are hair free! I hadn't expected it to work so well! I am delighted with its performance and will now venture to use it on my bikini line! I did ask Current body if I had to shave before each use, and they came back really quickly and said yes. I have been impressed with the Smoothskin and Current body! I can highly recommend the Smoothskin, and although I always told my husband never give me a present with a plug, this is an exception! This and my Dyson hairdryer! And now I see it is reduced, so I would recommend it as a Christmas present, as who knows we may get away next summer, and hairless legs would be a huge bonus!!!
