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.
