Enjoy smooth skin every day

Philips Lumea applies gentle pulses of light to the hair root. As a consequence, the amount of hair your body grows gradually decreases. Repeating the treatment leaves your skin beautifully hair free and touchably smooth.
Effortlessly effective

Our clinical studies have shown significant hair reduction in as little as four bi-weekly treatments resulting in smooth hair-free skin. To maintain these results, simply repeat the treatment when needed. Time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth.
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 to Use

Step 1
Remove excess hair by shaving, epilating or waxing the area before the first treatment.

Step 2
Select the correct intensity level for your skin tone using the provided skin chart.

Step 3
Turn the unit on and press the Lumea to your skin. Wait for the flash light to turn on and press the button.

Step 4
Slowly slide the Lumea across the treatment area. Avoid flashing the same spot.

How IPL works

With IPL technology, gentle pulses of light are applied to the skin and absorbed by the hair root. The darker the hair, the better the pulses of light are absorbed.

The pulses of light stimulate the hair follicle to go into a resting phase. As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is prevented, leaving your skin continuously silky-smooth.

The cycle of hair growth consists of different phases. IPL technology is only effective when the hair is in its growing phase. Not all hairs are in the growing phase at the same time. This is why we recommend an 8-week treatment schedule followed by touch-ups to make sure all hairs are effectively treated in the growing phase.

Note: Treatment with Lumea is not effective if you have light blond, blond as light hairs do not absorb enough light. Below you can see the hair colors for which Lumea is suitable and effective.

What to expect
Immediately after the 1st treatment
After the first treatment, it can take 1 to 2 weeks for the hairs to fall out. In the first weeks following the initial treatments, you still see some hairs growing. These are likely to be hairs that were not in their growing phase during the first treatments.

After 2-3 treatments
After 2-3 treatments, you should see a noticeable reduction in hair growth. However, to effectively treat all hairs, it is important to keep on treating according to the recommended treatment schedule.

After 4-5 treatments
After 4-5 treatments, you should see a significant reduction of hair growth in the areas that you treated with Lumea. A reduction of hair density should be visible as well. Keep on treating with frequent touch-ups (every 4-8 weeks) to maintain the result.

Important Note : Result may be vary person to person depending on the skin tone, hair colour, growth and thickness of hair.

What results can I expect from my Philips Lumea?
To achieve long-lasting, smooth and hair-free skin with your Philips Lumea IPL hair removal system, it is important that you keep the following in mind:
Use Lumea once every two weeks for the first 2 months.
This results in 75% hair reduction on average (measured on legs, after initial 4–5 treatments, individual results vary). After these initial treatments, repeat the process every four to eight weeks to keep skin smooth and hair-free.

Is Philips Lumea suitable for all skin and hair types?
No, Philips Lumea is not suitable for all skin and hair types. Find out for which skin tones and hair types Philips Lumea is suitable.
Lumea Skin and hair suitability

IPL treatment works because the energy of the light is absorbed by the melanin (type of pigment) of the hair. Since blonde, grey and white hairs do not contain any or enough melanin, IPL treatment will never work on these hair colours. Red hair contains a different type of melanin which is not responsive to IPL.

Always check the skin tone/hair colour chart . Use the light intensity (setting 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5) that is recommended for you. If the treatment feels uncomfortable, reduce the intensity. The treatment should not feel painful at any time.
Different areas of the body can be more sensitive than others. Simply adapt the intensity according to the sensation you experience.

Are there warnings or cautions for using Philips Lumea?
Philips Lumea has been developed with your safety in mind. However, it is important to note that it is not suitable for certain situations and conditions.

Skin and body hair type
IPL treatment works because the energy of the light is absorbed by the melanin (type of pigment) of the hair. Since blonde, grey and white hairs do not contain any melanin, IPL treatment will never work on these hair colours. Red hair contains a different type of melanin which is not responsive to IPL.
Lumea is also not suitable for naturally dark skin tone, as it can cause skin damage, such as burns, blisters or discolouring. Check the skin types and body hair colour chart to see if Philips Lumea is suitable for you. A unique skin colour sensor is incorporated in Philips Lumea models SC1981-1985 and SC1996, SC1997, SC1999, BRI86x, which ensures that a pulse will be emitted only on suitable skin colours.
Please perform a new skin test after tanning to determine the appropriate light intensity setting.

Medical condition
Philips Lumea should not be used by women with medical conditions such as skin cancer, lesions, epilepsy, vascular disorders, immunosuppressive disorders or skin allergies to light. If you take any medications: Please check the information for your prescription to find out whether it can potentially cause photosensitivity. If it can, do not use Philips Lumea. Other medications may cause a reaction, so please consult your doctor before use.

Can I use Philips Lumea all year round?
Yes. You can use your Lumea all year round, including summer. But, if possible, start the treatment in autumn, winter or spring to enjoy a smooth and hair-free summer. There are, however, precautions to be taken before and after tanning. With tanning we mean sunbathing; it is okay to have some sunlight on your skin from being outside.
