Philips Introduces Lumea
With the backing of 12 years’ experience** in IPL technology, you can trust Philips Lumea to give you smooth hair free skin with lasting results.
** Innovation Site Eindhoven, collaboration Peter Bjerring, 2002
Enjoy up to 8 weeks* of beautifully smooth, hair free skin
Philips Lumea uses an innovative light-based technology called IPL, derived from the technology used in professional beauty salons. Gentle pulses of light are applied that put the hair into the resting phase. These hairs naturally shed in the one to two weeks post treatment and further regrowth is inhibited, leaving you with silky smooth skin.
Philips has worked closely with leading dermatologists and expert scientists to develop our breakthrough hair removal system, carrying out extensive consumer research with more than 2000 volunteers. These clinical studies have shown significant hair reduction in as little as two fortnightly treatments, with optimal hair free results achieved after four to five fortnightly treatments. To maintain these results, simply repeat treatment every four to six weeks. (Time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth).
*after initial 4-5 treatments
Remove excess hair by shaving, epilating or waxing the area before the first treatment.
Select the correct intensity level for your skin tone using the provided skin chart.
Turn the unit on and press the Lumea to your skin. Wait for the flash light to turn on and press the button.
Slowly slide the Lumea across the treatment area. Avoid flashing the same spot.
Who is it suitable for?
Philips Lumea works effectively on (naturally) dark blonde, brown and black hairs. As with other light-based treatments, Philips Lumea is not effective on red, light-blonde or white/grey hair. Philips Lumea is also not suitable for very dark skin.
Results that you can see
Enjoy over 75 per cent hair reduction after only four bi-weekly treatments. After these four treatments, you can enjoy the freedom of smooth skin for up to two months between treatments.
Philips Lumea has five adjustable light energy settings to ensure gentle but effective treatment. Used correctly, Philips Lumea's IPL treatment is safe and gentle to use even on sensitive skin and sensitive body areas.
