Who can use SmoothSkin IPL devices?

As grey and white hair does not contain enough melanin, IPL treatments do not work on these hair colours. Additionally, red hair contains a different type of melanin, which is also not responsive to IPL treatments. Very dark skin tones with high melanin content cannot use IPL as it may cause skin damage.
