Adapted for safe use in the comfort of your own home

Philips Lumea uses an innovative light-based technology called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), derived from the technology used in professional beauty salons. Philips has adapted this technology for safe and effective use in the comfort of your own home. Philips worked closely with leading dermatologists to develop our breakthrough hair removal system. For more than 10 years we carried out extensive consumer research with more than 2000 women.

How It Works ?

How Does Philips Lumea Prevent Hair Growth?

Philips Lumea IPL Sc1983

Gentle pulses of light are applied directly to the hair. The melanin in the hair and hair root absorbs the light pulses. This process results in the follicle going into a resting phase. The hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited. A simple and gentle treatment once every two to four weeks will prevent hair roots from becoming active again and prevent new hair from growing back.

Five Steps To Lasting Smoothness

1. Pre-shave the treatment area to ensure the light energy is channeled in the most efficient way to the follicle. This is only required for the first few treatments.
2. Consult the skin and hair type matrix and select the light intensity suitable for your skin tone and body hair colour.
3. Apply gentle pulses of light to the hair. The light produces heat in the hair, which is transferred to the hair follicle. This stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase.
4. As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is inhibited.
5. To prevent hairs from growing back, the treatment must be repeated every two weeks (or every month for legs) which will progressively reduce hair regrowth to a minimum.

Q1.What happens if I use Philips Lumea more often — will I see better/quicker results?
No. Using your Philips Lumea more often than recommended will not speed up the hair removal process due to the speed of the hair growth cycle.You should avoid treating the same area multiple times in one session since this will not improve the efficacy.It only increases the risk of skin irritations.

Q2.Can I share the device with friends and family?
We strongly recommend not sharing the device with anyone and keeping it for personal use only. Philips Lumea has been designed for one person usage. Use by more than one person can affect the lifetime of the device.We do not recommend sharing the device from a hygiene perspective as well.

Q3.Can I use the precision attachment to shape my eyebrows?
No. Do not use the device or precision attachment around the eyes or near the eyebrows to avoid the risk of eye damage.

Q4.Does the treatment hurt?
In clinical trials, no women rated the experience as painful, providing that the correct settings according to skin tone and hair color were used and the instructions were followed. Some women did describe feelings such as 'a warm sensation','prickling' or'itching,' which in most cases disappeared after between a few minutes and an hour.
To get accustomed to Philips Lumea, it is recommended that you make test flashes near the area you intend to treat, using the lowest recommended light setting. Once you are comfortable with this, you can increase the light setting, step-by-step if necessary, but it should never become uncomfortable.
