INNOVATION FOR SAFE, EFFECTIVE
AND LONG-LASTING DEPILATION

Instant Soft Compact is the smart, safe answer to semi-definitive hair removal using concentrated beams of light.

The pro-precision technology using the exclusive spacing roll ensures no area is missed and prevents flashing the same area twice, thereby greatly reducing the risk of burning. Further safety features include a skin-contact detector, which blocks the light pulse when the device is not in contact with the skin, and a smart skin-color detector, which blocks the light pulse when skin is too dark. With five different settings adapted to various shades of skin, three lamps boasting 75,000 flashes each* and compact dimensions, Instant Soft Compact is the epitome of innovative technology. The result is precise, effective depilation for smoother skin.

FAQ

The armpit is a delicate area to remove hair from, because its skin is thin and sensitive (it is common to see red spots in the area after hair removal) and not very accessible to the epilator head. Although it might be easy to guide the epilator on the leg surface, on the armpit it is much more difficult because this is a concave spot and it is sometimes necessary to press the epilator head against the skin for it to be effective. In the figures below, we show the appropriate movements to achieve armpit hair removal without any inconvenience. Please remember that the "sensitive areas" accessory which clips on to the epilator head should be used when removing hair from the armpits.
No. The appliance may not be used on the face.
You should undergo treatment every two weeks for four to six sessions (two to three months), then once a month for two to four sessions (depending on regrowth).
Maintenance sessions may then be necessary, based on hair distribution, until hair is completely gone.
Treatment should be performed on shaved skin only, not on epilated skin (no waxing or epilator use – the root must be present).
You cannot treat the same area more than once per week.
After following the instructions in the user manual for starting the appliance, make sure that your electrical socket is working by plugging another appliance. If it still does not work, do not try to dismantle or repair the appliance yourself and take it to an approved repair centre.

Check that the bulb is correctly installed in the appliance. If so, then the bulb is dead and must be replaced.
A Class I appliance must be earthed (and has only one insulation layer). A Class II appliance does not necessarily have to be earthed because it has two distinct and independent insulation layers.
It is better to avoid sun exposure and sea bathing immediately after epilating, because the skin is sensitised. And if you are planning to epilate, the same advice applies, do not expose yourself before, so as not to have a too sensitive skin.
