How often do I have to repeat the treatments? Do I need to keep using Philips Lumea, once I am smooth?
To remove all hairs successfully and prevent the hair follicle from becoming active again, the treatments have to be repeated once every two weeks for the first two months. Your skin should be smooth and hair-free by then. Our studies have shown a significant hair reduction already after two treatments.
Optimal results were generally achieved after four to five treatments.
To maintain results and prevent the hair root from becoming active again, it is necessary to repeat treatments regularly to keep your skin smooth and hair-free. If the treatment is interrupted, the hair follicle will re-activate and hair will start to grow back. To maintain results, repeat treatments every four to eight weeks, this will ensure that the hair root stays inactive and hair regrowth is inhibited. The time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair growth.
If too many hairs grow back between treatments, simply shorten the treatment interval again, but do not treat more often than once every two weeks.
When you use the appliance more frequently than recommended, you do not increase the effectiveness but you do increase the risk of skin reactions.
