Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any side effects during or after treatments?

If you use your Lumea according to instructions, you should not experience any serious side effects. However, these minor skin reactions may be experienced.

Common side effects

Your skin may show slight redness and/or may prickle, tingle or feel warm. This reaction is absolutely harmless and disappears quickly. Dry skin and itching may occur due to shaving or a combination of shaving and light treatment. You can cool the area with an ice pack or a wet face cloth. If dryness persists, you can apply a non-scented moisturizer on the treated area.

Rare side effects

  • Burns, excessive redness (e.g. around hair follicles) and swelling: these reactions occur rarely. They are the result of using a light intensity that is too high for your skin tone. If these reactions do not disappear within 3 days, we advise you to consult a doctor. Wait with the next treatment until the skin has healed completely and make sure you use a lower light intensity.
  • Skin discoloration: this occurs very rarely. Skin discoloration manifests itself as either a darker patch (hyperpigmentation) or a lighter patch (hypopigmentation) than the surrounding area. This is the result of using a light intensity that is too high for your skin tone. If the discoloration does not disappear within 2 weeks, we advise you to consult a doctor. Do not treat discolored areas until the discoloration has disappeared and your skin has regained its normal skin tone.
  • Skin infection is very rare but is a possible risk following a (micro) wound, a skin burn, skin irritation etc.
  • Epidermal heating (a sharply defined brownish area which often occurs with darker skin tones and is not accompanied with skin dryness): This reaction occurs very rarely. In case this reaction does not disappear within 1 week, we advise you to consult a doctor. Wait with the next treatment until the skin has healed completely and make sure you use a lower light intensity.
  • Blistering (looks like small bubbles on the surface of the skin): this occurs very rarely. In case this reaction does not disappear within 1 month or when the skin gets infected, we advise you to consult a doctor. Wait with the next treatment until the skin has healed completely and make sure you use a lower light intensity.
  • Scarring: often the secondary effect of a burn, which can take longer than a month to heal.
  • Folliculitis (swelling around hair follicles combined with pustule formation): this reaction occurs very rarely and is the result of bacteria penetrating the damaged skin. In case this reaction occurs, we advise you to consult a doctor as folliculitis may need antibiotic ointment.
  • Excessive pain: this can occur during or after treatment if you have used the device on skin that is not hair-free, if you use the device at a light intensity that is too high for your skin tone, if you flash the same area more than once and if you use the device on open wounds, inflammations, infections, tattoos, burns, etc.
    Note: when following all instructions you may still get skin reactions. In this case stop using the device and contact the consumer care center in your country.
