How do I get the best results with my Philips Lumea?
You can see significant hair reduction results after four to five biweekly treatments with your Philips Lumea. To find out how to get these results, follow our instructions below.
Follow the treatment schedule
We recommend using Philips Lumea once every two weeks for the first four to five treatments to achieve significant hair reduction results. To maintain these results, simply repeat the treatments when needed every four to eight weeks. Treatment intervals may vary based on your individual hair growth.
Start by removing the hair from your skin
Start your treatment by first removing all hair from your skin. You can choose to shave, epilate or wax the areas you intend to treat. If you choose to wax, we recommend that you wait at least 24 hours before using Philips Lumea.
Select the right settings
Before starting your Philips Lumea treatment, make sure that you select the recommended intensity suitable for your skin and hair colour. Always check the skin tone/hair colour table in the user manual.
Some Philips Lumea models (BRI862, BRI863, BRI864 and BRI95* series) are equipped with a SmartSkin Sensor. The sensor recommends the setting which was comfortable for most women with a skin tone similar to yours. If a treatment feels uncomfortable with these settings you can always lower them manually.
Treat all areas evenly
For Philips Lumea to work effectively it is important that you use it evenly all over your skin and do not miss any spots. However, make sure you do not flash the same area more than once, as this can result in skin reactions.
