Introducing Smoothee IR
Smoothee IR works on the same principle as the Traditional Chinese practise of cupping where a vacuum is created to draw skin up into a smooth cup producing a deep tissue massaging effect. Smoothee IR simplifies this technique by using an electronically controlled pump to create the vacuum and this is enhanced by the addition of gentle infrared (IR) heat. Applying the vacuum and infrared heat to areas of cellulite helps to loosen and disperse the fat deposits within the connective tissue layer and creates a smoother surface appearance. By using the cooling head for a few minutes after each treatment, your skin will also be left feeling beautifully soothed.

CHARGING YOUR DEVICE
- Charge your device by connecting to a USB power supply using the `USB to Type C’ lead supplied. The LEDs on the front of the product will light sequentially during charging. When all 3 LEDs are lit continuously the product is fully charged and should be disconnected from the power supply.
- A 4-hour charge* will provide up to 3 hours of cordless use.
- When switching the device on, all 3 LEDs will blink 5 times if battery is low and needs charging.
*Based on using a 1A USB power adapter (not supplied)
CLEANING & CARE
- Switch the device off and unplug the charging lead before cleaning.
- Remove the cup by twisting counter-clockwise. The cups can be washed in warm soapy water. Dry carefully before storing away.
- Wipe any residual oil from the device and from the cooling head with a slightly damp cloth and dry immediately.
- DO NOT wash or immerse the device or the cooling head.
- After 3-4 weeks of use, gently remove the felt filter with tweezers and replace with a new filter (supplied).
- Store all parts in their original box for safekeeping.
- The cups are designed to be used on lightly oiled skin. We recommend a light application of a simple baby oil, olive oil or liquid coconut oil to the skin before treatment. Please avoid perfumed oils as these can damage/discolour plastic surfaces. Do not use on un-oiled skin.
- If you know that you are prone to bruising easily, you may wish to carry out a patch test on a small area prior to full treatment to assess the effect on your skin. As with any vacuum cupping treatment, temporary bruising may occur on the treated area, but should resolve within a few days.
- Attach your chosen cup to the device by locating the lugs and twisting into position. The larger cups are generally suitable for areas such as thighs and buttocks and the smaller cups for areas such as arms and calves.
- Slip your hand under the silicon strap and press the power button. This will activate the vacuum suction and IR heat simultaneously. There are 3 levels of continuous suction and one of intermittent suction as indicated by the 3 LEDs. Press the + and buttons to change levels. Intermittent suction is the gentlest setting and is indicated by a single LED pulsing on and off. Note: there is no IR heat on this gentlest setting.
- We recommend starting with either intermittent or low continuous suction while you get used to the device. Place the device onto the skin and immediately start to move it slowly in a circular or back and forth motion across the area to be treated taking care to maintain contact between the cup and the skin. There is no need to apply pressure, but do keep the device moving at all times. If the suction feels too strong or if it’s hard to keep the device moving, press the power button to release the vacuum. Start again at a lower intensity level and/or with a larger cup. In normal use, you will see and feel the skin being drawn up into the cup and across the massage fingers.
- To stop the treatment at any time, simply press the power button to release the vacuum.
- Treatment of each area usually takes around 3-5 minutes. Treat up to 3 times a week for the first week building up to once a day if desired. Skin will typically start to appear smoother after just a few weeks.
- Never treat areas of irritated or broken skin, or over varicose veins or moles.
- If bruising occurs it is always recommended to wait for this to fade before re-treating the same area.
- Remove the cup after use by twisting counter-clockwise.
- After removing the cup from the device, attach the cooling head by locating the lugs and twisting into position.
- Press the power button to activate the cooling. The stainless-steel surface will start to cool down immediately. Use the + and buttons to adjust the cooling temperature as required to what feels comfortable for you. Level 3 (3 LEDs lit) is the coldest.
- Gently apply the cold surface onto the skin, moving slowly over the whole of the treated area. Continue with this treatment for a few minutes to help soothe and firm the skin. Press the power button to switch off.
PLEASE NOTE: Auto-switch off will occur after 10mins of cooling. If further cooling time is required the unit can be turned back on for another 10 minute session.
