Frequently Asked Questions

How do I select the right Lumea light intensity for me?

We don’t want you to have undesired skin reactions with your Lumea. However, we do want you to see expected result. So it's important that you use the light intensity recommended for your skin and hair type.

Right skin tone and hair color

For all Lumea models, please check the skin tone/hair color chart in the user manual.
Philips Lumea Prestige series BRI95x have an additional feature that helps you in selecting the right intensity. The SmartSkin sensor with an integrated skin tone sensor reads your skin tone and advises you on the setting suitable for you. You simply confirm the recommended setting and off you go.

Additional advice

Start with the lowest recommended intensity. If all goes well, increase gradually.
If the treatment feels uncomfortable, reduce the intensity. The treatment should not feel painful at any time.
Different areas of the body can be more sensitive than others. Simply adapt the intensity if you experience any discomfort.
Skin color can differ between different body areas or become darker after tanning, so please select the right setting for each body area separately by using the SmartSkin Sensor or the skin tone / hair color chart in the user manual.
