    Real women, real IPL treatment reviews.

    1. How long-lasting is the hair removal?

    ‘Permanent’ hair removal refers to laser and IPL. If you read testimonials, you’ll quickly notice that these methods reduce hair growth long-term, but don’t completely eliminate it. For the treatment with Philips Lumea Prestige, objective studies have shown a significant hair reduction after only three to four treatments with an interval of two weeks.1

    This is what real women say when asked, “does Philips Lumea work?”:

    “I can see and feel a difference on the legs even after the first two treatments. My boyfriend, too, has noticed the difference – and he didn’t even know about the Lumea. ;-)”

    2. How easy is it to handle?

    The Philips Lumea Prestige is approximately the size of a travel-sized hair dryer. It fits comfortably in the hand and thanks to its attachments for different body parts enables an effective and quick IPL hair removal experience. It only takes 8.5 minutes for you to treat both lower legs.3

    “The Lumea Prestige comes in a medium sized package, crisply packaged and it looks exactly like the pictures suggest. It feels good in the hands, is high-end and stylish.”

    Naledi, 13.06.20182

    Profile image of reviewer, a woman wearing a wetsuit on some rocks holding a surfboard.

    “The design is really tuned to us women. White and red-gold appeal to almost any woman.”

    5. Does it hurt?

    Thanks to its light-based technology, IPL treatment with the Philips Lumea Prestige is virtually pain-free. Compared to hair removal methods such as waxing, sugaring, or epilating, the slight warm sensation that you may feel is a walk in the park.

    “The treatment does not hurt like, for example, epilating or waxing.”

    Antje85, 24.06.20182

    Profile image of reviewer, a side-profile of a woman sitting in a theatre.

    “The treatment itself for me is generally pain-free. Only on thin skin areas (for example armpits) the light impulse can sometimes be felt briefly, but is never painful, especially since the intensity can be individually adjusted.”

    Hummelkiwi, 12.06.20182 

    1 Up to 92% less hair after 3 treatments according to the treatment plan, determined on the legs. Individual resulty can vary.

    2 This review was submitted after receiving an incentive (coupon, discount, free trial, sweepstakes, raffle competition, etc.).

    3 When used corded, time for highest setting.
