Rowenta - LISSEA SKIN RESPECT frequently asked questions

Référence : RF3210F0


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.
No, we do not recommend you use the shaver on the face or on damaged skin; also avoid sensitive areas such as varicose veins, beauty spots or birth marks.
If used whilst showering, you will achieve a gentler shave with soap or shaving cream.
Wait 24 hours before applying deodorant or perfume to the underarms.
With a rechargeable model, you must charge the battery for at least eight hours before the first use. Ensure that your skin is perfectly clean before beginning to shave. For this reason, we recommend that you avoid applying cream or moisturising lotion before shaving.
Absolutely not! This would irritate your skin and make it more sensitive, even before beginning to shave. Exfoliate to free the hairs, then begin to shave.
Yes, you can use it on the entire leg, but it is preferable that you avoid shaving above the knee, i.e. the thighs. As the hairs are finer, it is better to avoid starting to shave, instead opting for other removal methods.
It is better to avoid exposure to the sun or UV light, as well as sea bathing, immediately after epilating, because the skin is sensitised.
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, instead, take it to an approved repair centre
Do not use your appliance. To avoid any danger, have it replaced by an approved repair centre.
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.
Your appliance contains valuable materials which can be recovered or recycled. Leave it at a local civic waste collection point.
