Is the flashing light on my Lumea safe for my eyes?
Philips Lumea has been developed with your safety in mind and does not hurt your eyes. What differs between salon and at-home treatments?
Philips Lumea IPL technology is derived from the technology used in professional salons. We have, however, adapted the technology for safe and effective use at home. The lamp on my Philips Lumea is failing?
Philips Lumea is equipped with a high performance lamp, which does not require replacement, so that you can continuously maintain results for many years to come. Whats the difference between IPL and laser treatments? IPL and laser treatments are equally effective for hair removal.
There are, however, some differences between the two: IPL vs Laser IPL contains a broader spectrum of light (like a photo flash) while laser emits a single beam of light (like a laser pointer). As a result of the single beam of light the laser treatment might be perceived painful.Furthermore, laser treatment usually requires a longer treatment time, as the treatment window size is smaller than with IPL devices. 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 45 treatments, individual results vary). After these initial treatments, repeat the process every four to eight weeks to keep skin smooth and hair-free.
