Troubleshooting How do I get the best results with my Philips Lumea? To get the most from Lumea, remove all hair by shaving, epilating or waxing the areas you intend to treat. Make sure that you clean off any greasy or oily residue. Select recommended intensity Before starting your treatment, make sure that you select the recommended intensity for your skin and hair colour. Use Lumea once every two weeks for the first 2 months to achieve long lasting silky smooth skin. To maintain these results, simply repeat the treatments when needed for 4–8 weeks. Treatment intervals may vary based on your individual hair growth. Avoid missing any spots Move your Lumea about 1 cm down or up after each flash to avoid missing any spots The rim around the treatment window should overlap (see image).
