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.
