Philips Lumea IPL works wonders to prevent the reappearance of hair on the body and face. Gentle pulses of light, applied regularly, keep skin silky-smooth every day.
No reward points for this product because there's already a discount.
Philips Lumea applies gentle pulses of light to the hair root. This results in the hair shedding naturally and hair regrowth is inhibited. Repeating this treatment regularly will keep your skin smooth everyday.
Our clinical studies have shown significant hair reduction in as few as four bi-weekly treatments, resulting in smooth, hair-free skin. To maintain these results, simply repeat the treatment when needed. Time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth.
Big body attachment enables fast treatment on large areas like legs.
Philips Lumea works effectively on (naturally) dark blonde, brown and black hair. As with other light-based treatments, Philips Lumea is NOT effective on red, light blonde or white/grey hair. Philips Lumea is also NOT suitable for dark skin.
Main application mode enables sliding motion for more convenient and continuous application.
Philips Lumea has five adjustable light energy settings to ensure gentle but effective treatment. Used correctly, Philips Lumea's IPL treatment is safe and gentle to use even on sensitive skin and sensitive body areas.
Philips Lumea is a complete solution that comes ready to work straight out of the box. More importantly, it does not require any replacement lamps or gels.
Philips Lumea uses an innovative light-based technology called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), derived from the technology used in professional beauty salons. Philips has adapted this technology for safe and effective use in the comfort of your own home. Philips worked closely with leading dermatologists to develop our breakthrough hair removal system. For more than 10 years we carried out extensive consumer research with more than 2000 volunteers.
With the additional integrated light filter, it can be used for safe treatment of facial hair on the upper lip, chin, cheeks and other sensitive areas.
For extra safety, the integrated Skin-Tone Sensor measures the complexion of the treated skin at the beginning of each session and occasionally during the session. If it detects a skin tone that is too dark for Lumea Essential, it will automatically stop emitting pulses.
If you are looking for a safe, fast and painless solution to unwanted hair with lasting results, the Philips Lumea is a good choice.
Using Advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL), Lumea offers one solution to replace conventional hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, creams, gels and epilators. As well as being effective for legs, arms, back and tummy, Lumea comes with a specially designed precision attachment for use on the face. Lumea's SC1997 corded design is suitable for treating the areas you want, when you want.
Philips clinical studies have shown significant hair reduction in as little as two fortnightly treatments, with optimal hair-free results achieved after four to five fortnightly treatments. To maintain these results, simply repeat treatment every four to six weeks. Time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth.*

Gentle pulses of light are applied directly to the hair. The melanin in the hair and hair root absorbs the light pulses. This process results in the follicle going into a resting phase. The hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited.
A simple and gentle treatment once every two to four weeks will prevent hair roots from becoming active again and prevent hair from growing back.
Light from an IPL flash is white; white light is made up of all colours. Only orange, red and infrared light penetrate the hair follicle deep enough for effective hair reduction. Lumea’s red integrated UV filters protect your skin from UV light.
Certain Lumea models contain additional filters for body and face treatments. The facial attachment's UV filter provides extra protection and prevents skin damage to the face. The facial attachment should only be used to treat unwanted hair on cheeks, upper lip and chin, this attachment has been designed to treat the facial hair safely and effectively.
Philips Lumea works effectively on (naturally) dark-blonde, brown and black hair. It is not suitable for (naturally) red, grey and light blonde hair or for very dark skin types (skin type VI). Please consult the comparison table to determine which light intensities are most suitable for your skin and body hair colour and to check if this method is suitable for you at all (if it is not, this is indicated with an x).
Please note: Unfortunately, Philips Lumea is not designed for everyone. If any of the following is true for you, then this appliance is not suitable for you to use.
- If your natural hair colour in the treatment areas is light blonde, white, grey or red.
- If you are of skin type VI (you rarely or never get sunburnt and you tan very darkly). In this case you run a high risk of developing skin reactions such as strong redness, burns or discolouration when you use Philips Lumea.
- Philips Lumea Precision has been optimised for use by women but recent research showed that it can be used by men on most areas of the body, except the beard and scrotum.
