Philips Lumea Tips & Tricks
Apply the treatment before you go to bed at night. Any slight skin irritation that may occur will fade overnight.
If you experience skin redness or itching – after use – which is normal and harmless, you can reduce the redness or itching by cooling the skin with some ice or with a towel soaked in cold water or a cooling pack.
The hair roots absorb the pulses of light more effectively when the skin is cool, so allow time after taking a sauna or bath before you start the treatment.
When treating skin on your shinbone, try pulling your skin gently away from the bony part of your leg or hold the Lumea in a vertical position when applying.
If possible, start the treatment in winter or spring. By starting in winter or spring, you can enjoy smooth skin from the start of summer.
Stretched skin enables proper skin contact and releases the flash more easily. For instance, to reach optimal results on your underarms, stretch the skin by raising your arm and placing your hand behind your neck.
