Innovation Site Eindhoven, collaboration Peter Bjerring, 2002. IPL Technology Philips Lumea uses a 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 skin care experts to develop this technology, carrying out extensive consumer research on IPL technology with over 2000 women.

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. How to Use - Five steps to everlasting smoothness: 1. Pre-shave the treatment area to ensure the light energy is channeled in the most efficient way to the follicle. This is only required for the first few treatments.Consult the skin and hair type matrix and select the light intensity suitable for your skin tone and body hair colour. 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. As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is inhibited. 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.
