As one of the best-known names in hair removal, the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) used in a Lumea device applies gentle pulses of light to your hair root, putting the follicle into a resting phase.
As a consequence, the amount of hair your body grows gradually decreases. By following the recommended treatment plan, you can enjoy an 85% reduction in just 3 treatments.

Who Can Use Philips?
Philips is suitable for those with skin type I to IV according to the Fitzpatrick Scale. It is not suitable for use on blonde, white, grey or red hair.
Since light blonde, grey and white hair do not contain enough or any melanin, IPL treatment will never work on these hair colours. Red hair contains a different type of melanin, which is also not responsive to IPL.
Philips Lumea is also not suitable for dark skin tones, as it can cause skin damage such as burns, blisters or discolouring.
