Unique attachments designed for optimal results.Underarms, bikini area, body, face With unique curved attachments With SmartSkin sensor Both cordless and corded use. Derived from professional IPL, developed with dermatologists Philips Lumea uses an innovative light-based technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to break the cycle of hair regrowth. Gentle pulses of light are applied at the root and, after several treatments, hair is prevented from growing back.
IPL technology has been available in specialist salons since 1997. Philips Lumea, derived from this professional IPL technology, makes it possible for you to treat hair easily and effectively at home. Philips Lumea Prestige is the culmination of 14 years of research and development in collaboration with leading dermatologists. Objective studies show significant hair reduction after as few as 3 to 4 bi-weekly treatments, resulting in smooth, hair-free skin. To maintain results, touch up every 4 to 8 weeks.
Suitable for a wide variety of hair and skin types Philips Lumea Prestige works effectively, easily and safely on a wide variety of hair and skin types. It works on naturally dark blonde, brown and black hair and on skin tones from very white to dark brown. As with other IPL-based treatments, Philips Lumea cannot be used to treat white/grey, light blonde or red hair and is not suitable for very dark skin. This is due to the high contrast required between the pigment in the hair colour and the pigment in the skin tone.

The SmartSkin sensor advises the best setting for your skin tone, any time you want. Both cordless and corded functionality. Philips Lumea Prestige is the IPL device that can be used with or without a cord for complete convenience. Use cordless for full freedom of movement and plug in when needed for treatment with NO interruptions. No replacement parts, no hidden costs Philips Lumea is a complete solution that comes ready to work, straight out of the box. No refill cartridges or gels needed.
With Intense Pulsed Light technology, gentle pulses of light are applied to the skin and absorbed by the hair root. The lighter the skin and the darker the hair, the better the pulses of light are absorbed. The cycle of hair growth consists of different phases. IPL technology is only effective when the hair is in its growing phase. Not all hairs are in the growing phase at the same time.
This is why we recommend you to follow the initial treatment phase (4-5 treatments, every treatment 2 weeks apart) and then the follow-up treatment phase (touch-ups every 4-8 weeks) to make sure all hairs are effectively treated in the growing phase. Selecting the right light intensity. Lumea provides 5 different light intensities and advises you on the right setting you should use based on your skin tone.

After the device scanned your skin, the suggested intensity lights will blink white to indicate which intensities you can use based on your skin tone.

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 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.Can Philips Lumea be used by men too? Philips Lumea has been optimised for use by women, but can be used by men as well. Does the Philips Lumea treatment hurt? In the extensive amount of (clinical) research carried out into the Lumea, no women rated the experience as painful, providing that correct settings, according to skin tone and hair colour, were used. Why do I need to remove hair before a Lumea treatment? To ensure that the light energy is channelled to the hair root in the most efficient way and not lost in the hairs above the skin's surface, body hair has to be removed. However, pre-treatment is only necessary while hair is still visibly growing back.
What is the difference between Slide & Flash and Step & Flash mode? To make the application as easy and comfortable as possible, Philips Lumea offers two different application modes. This mode is to treat large areas e. You do not need to lift the Lumea between flashes.
Instead you just slide it over the skin while holding the flash button pressed throughout the application it will flash as you go. This makes the treatment of large areas easier and faster.Step & Flash/Stamp & Flash. This mode is for small and bony areas that are more difficult to treat e. Place your Lumea on the skin, release a flash, lift it off from the skin and move on to the next area. How does the SmartSkin sensor feature work for Lumea Prestige?
The SmartSkin sensor helps you choose the right setting. Since body areas might differ in skin colour, please consult the SmartSkin sensor for each body area separately in order to use the right setting.
