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 1-2 weeks post treatment and further regrowth is inhibited.
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. This Philips Lumea is also NOT suitable for very dark skin (please see chart).
Results that you can see
Enjoy over 75% 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. It just takes 8 minutes for a lower leg or 1 minute for the bikini area.
Lumea has 2 treatment modes; Slide and Flash is ideal for fast treatment of larger areas such as legs - you simply glide the device over the skin you want to treat, smoothly and quickly.
To treat curvy areas or targeted zones, such as bikini line, you have the option of Step & Flash mode too.
Lumea’s unique cordless design is perfect for treating the areas you want, when you want.
Specially designed attachments
The SC2009 comes with 3 specially designed attachments for different body parts - 1 for the body, 1 for the face and 1 for the bikini area.
