Troubleshooting

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

If you would like to find out how to select the right Lumea light intensity for your skin tone please read our instructions below.

Check your skin tone and hair color

It is important to use the light intensity recommended for your skin and hair type. For your Philips Lumea model, please check the skin tone/hair color chart in the user manual.

Use the SmartSkin sensor

Some Philips Lumea models (BRI862, BRI863, BRI864, 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 the treatment feels uncomfortable with these settings you can always lower them manually.

Additional advice

To get used to Philips Lumea, we recommend that you first make test flashes near the area you are intending to treat and continue with the highest setting that still feels comfortable and does not give side effects. Different body areas may have different sensitivity and skin color. So make sure you do the skin test on every area you wish to treat and choose the settings accordingly.

If the treatment feels uncomfortable, reduce the intensity. The treatment should not feel painfull at any time.
