Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to shave before a Lumea treatment?

To ensure that the light energy is channeled to the hair root in the most efficient way and not lost in hairs above the skin's surface, body hair has to be removed.

Keep your skin free of hair

If hair is left on the treatment, these can be burnt by the intense light, which causes an unpleasant smell and, if left uncleaned, could damage your Lumea


Pre-treatment is only necessary while hair is still growing back. Once you have have achieved long-lasting smoothness, you can stop shaving and only use Philips Lumea to maintain your hair-free state.
