Ensuring the skin sensors are in contact with the skin press and hold the treatment button on the wand, this initiates the treatment flash.nnStep 4: After the treatment flash the unit will self-check, move the wand to the next area to be treated and repeat the process. When you have finished your treatment, turn the unit off and store in a safe place away from children.nnThe timing for follow on treatments is not critical. We recommend treatments at 2 week intervals, although some people like to treat the area every week and others just once a month depending on personal preference and on where the treatment area is. As long as the hair follicle or surrounding skin is not red, sore or inflamed, treatment can be repeated after a minimum of 48 hours.
