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 hair from growing back. Application Areas and Treatment Time Face: 1 minute Underarms: 1 minute per side Entire bikini area: 4 minutes One lower leg: 8 minutes One full leg: 15 minutes Is Lumea Right for Me Philips Lumea works effectively on (naturally) dark-blonde, brown and black hair.

If you have naturally dark brown or very dark brown skin, you rarely or never get sunburnt and you tan very darkly. In this case you run a high risk of developing skin reactions such as strong redness, burns or discolouration when you use Philips Lumea. There are medications and health conditions that may lead to adverse reactions when you use Philips Lumea.Five Steps for Smoothness that Lasts Pre-shave the treatment area to ensure the light energy is channeled in an 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 inhibite To prevent hair 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.
