Philips Lumea Prestige is the most effective cordless IPL solution and works wonders to prevent the reappearance of hair on face and body. Gentle pulses of light, applied regularly, keep skin silky-smooth every day.
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.
Our clinical studies have shown significant hair reduction in as little as four fortnightly treatments resulting in smooth hair free skin. To maintain these results, simply repeat the treatment when needed. Time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth.

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. 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.Press the flash button to release the flash.

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, you should see a noticeable reduction in hair growth. However, to effectively treat all hairs, it is important to keep on treatingaccording to the recommended treatment schedule.
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 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.
