    Is Philips Lumea gentle on my skin?

    Published on 2018-06-26

    Philips Lumea uses an innovative light-based technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), derived from the technology used in professional beauty salons.

    Extensive research

    Philips has adapted this technology for effective use in the comfort of your own home Philips has worked closely with skin care experts to develop this technology. For more than 12 years, Philips also carried out extensive consumer research on IPL technology with more than 2000 women.

    Is it safe?

    Philips Lumea emits flashes only if in contact with the skin. The integrated UV filter protects your skin from UV light. If your skin is too dark, the skin color sensor prevents the emission of flashes.

    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.

    We recommend that you use Lumea in a well-lit room to protect your eyes from any excessive light.
