Product Information

Philips Lumea Advanced IPL SC1999/00

Range: Philips

Philips Lumea Advanced works wonders to prevent the reappearance of hair on body and face. Gentle pulses of light, applied regularly, keep skin silky-smooth every day.


IPL technology - Philips Lumea uses an innovative 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 leading dermatologists to develop our breakthrough hair removal system. For more than 10 years we carried out extensive consumer research with more than 2000 volunteers.

Enjoy smooth skin every day - Philips Lumea applies gentle pulses of light to the hair root. As a consequence, the amount of hair your body grows gradually decreases. Repeating the treatment leaves your skin beautifully hair free and touchably smooth. Effortlessly effective.

Suitable hair and skin types - 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. This product is also NOT suitable for dark skin.

Application areas - Use with confidence to remove hair on face (upper lip, chin and sideburns) and body parts including legs, underarm, bikini area, belly and arms.
Fast treatment on legs
Big treatment window for fast application on large areas like legs.
Extra safety for the face
With the additional integrated light filter, it can be used for safe treatment of facial hair on the upper lip, chin, cheeks and other sensitive areas.
Bikini area attachment - Bikini area attachment for effective treatment of bikini hair. Hair in this area tends to be typically stronger and thicker than leg hair.


Gentle, long-term hair reduction

How to Use

Product Uses

Before you use Lumea, you should pretreat your skin by removing hairs on the surface of your skin. This allows the light to be absorbed by the hair parts below the skin surface to ensure effective treatment. You can either shave, short-trim, epilate or wax. Do not use depilatory creams, as chemicals may cause skin reactions. For extra safety the integrated skin tone sensor measures the skin tone at the beginning of each session and occasionally during the session. If it detects a skin tone that is too dark for treatment with Lumea, the device automatically disables to prevent you from developing skin reactions. This means that it does not emit pulses when you press the flash button. Lumea provides 5 different light intensities. Depending on your skin type and light intensity level you find comfortable, you can select the right light intensity setting. Lumea provides 5 different light intensities. Press the device firmly onto your skin to ensure proper skin contact. The device then automatically performs a skin tone analysis and the ‘ready to flash light’ lights up white to indicate that you can proceed with the treatment. Press the flash button to release the flash.

Tips & Advice

What to expect
Immediately after the 1st treatment - After the first treatment, it can take 1 to 2 weeks for the hairs to fall out. In the first weeks following the initial treatments, you still see some hairs growing. These are likely to be hairs that were not in their growing phase during the first treatments.

After 2-3 treatments - After 2-3 treatments, you should see a noticeable reduction in hair growth. However, to effectively treat all hairs, it is important to keep on treating according to the recommended treatment schedule.

After 4-5 treatments - After 4-5 treatments, you should see a significant reduction of hair growth in the areas that you treated with Lumea. A reduction of hair density should be visible as well. Keep on treating with frequent touch-ups (every 4-8 weeks) to maintain the result.

Tanning advice Tanning with natural or artificial sunlight Intentionally exposing your skin to natural or artificial sunlight with the aim of developing a tan influences the sensitivity and color of your skin. Therefore the following is important:
- After each treatment, wait at least 48 hours before tanning. Even after 48 hours, make sure that the treated skin does not show any redness from the treatment anymore.
- In case of exposing your skin to the sun (without tanning intentionally) in the 48 hours after treatment, use a sunblock SPF 50+ on the treated areas. After this period, you can use a sunblock SPF 30+ for two weeks.
- After tanning, wait at least 2 weeks before you use Lumea. Perform a skin test to determine the appropriate light intensity setting.
- Do not use Lumea on sunburned body areas. Note: Occasional and indirect sun exposure does not qualify as tanning.
