Frequently Asked Questions

Is Philips Lumea safe for me and my skin?

Yes. At Philips, your safety always comes first. Philips Lumea has been developed with leading dermatologists, and fulfills all safety regulations for home-use.

Intense Pulsed Light

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

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

Safety First

Philips Lumea ensures that flashing is only possible when in contact with the skin. The integrated UV filter ensures that the light only affects the hair and not the skin. If your skin is too dark, the skin color sensor prevents the emission of flashes. We recommend to use the Lumea in a well-lit room.

Side Effects

Side effects and complications, while possible, are very unlikely as long as Philips Lumea is used according to the instructions and precautions included in the user manual.
