Affordable The Philips Lumea is a cost-effective alternative to salon-based laser hair removal treatments. How does Philips Lumea work? 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.
Three phases of hair growth To properly understand how intense pulsed light works, you first need to understand the three hair growth phases. Active phase: The hair begins its growth from the root, and gradually extends further above the skin.
In this phase, the substance melanin (which gives hair its colour) is at its highest. The more melanin in the hair root the darker the colour of the hair. The Philips Lumea SC2001/00's intense pulsed light (IPL) technology works best on dark hair as it attaches itself to the pigment. Regression phase: Hair stops growing and the root starts to shrink in preparation to shed the hair. Resting phase: The old hair detaches from the root and is slowly forced out by the new hair, which is growing underneath.
The root remains at rest until the body tells it to re-enter the active phase. How does Philips Lumea prevent hair growth? The Philips Lumea SC2001/00 intense pulsed light (IPL) works by heating up the hair and the root beneath the skin, using gentle pulses of light absorbed by the hairs melanin. An internal optical filter ensures no UV light reaches the skin and leaves it unharmed.
This light energy stimulates the hair root to go into a resting phase. In the following days the hair will shed naturally and hair growth is inhibited. It may take several weeks before the root becomes active again to grow a new hair. Used every two weeks you will enjoy the confidence of silky smooth skin forever. Philips Lumea works even on sensitive body areas Philips Lumea has been developed in close cooperation with leading dermatologists with five adjustable light intensity settings for a safe, effective and gentle treatment, even on sensitive areas.
Five steps to everlasting smoothness: 1 - Pre-shave the treatment area Pre-shave the treatment area to ensure the light energy is channelled in the most efficient way to the follicle. This is only required for the first few treatments. 2 - Select the correct light intensity Consult the skin and hair type matrix and select the light intensity suitable for your skin tone and body hair color. 3 - Apply pulses of light to the hair 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 - Effective hair regrowth prevention As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is inhibited. 5 - Repeat the treatment every two to four weeks 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.

Survey 2009 When tested, 82% of women preferred Philips Lumeas IPL hair removal system to conventional methods, including waxing, shaving and epilation. Based on 315 Lumea users in Spain (MetrixLab, 2009) Can I expect light-based hair removal results to last forever? Neither professional nor at-home light-based hair removal treatments can deliver permanent hair removal.Due to the hair growth cycle, light-based treatments are usually done in a series of sessions. Hairs that may have been dormant during your previous treatment may now be in the growth phase. With both professional and at-home treatments, hairs usually reappear after time, typically with a reduced amount or finer version. For professional treatment, maintenance sessions once or twice a year are often recommended. Philips Lumea uses a lower intensity than the professional treatments, but using it more regularly gives you breakthrough results at home. Some competitors claim permanent hair reduction. According to the FDA (Richard Felten, FDA regulator responsible for light-based epilation) Permanent hair reduction is defined as the long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing after a treatment regime. Permanent hair reduction does not necessarily imply the elimination of all hairs in the treatment area. Unfortunately, most consumers mistake permanent hair reduction (which can mean only 40% reduction, which would be an unsatisfactory result) for permanent hair removal, which is a myth.
