From the manufacturer
Discover Philips Lumea: the No1. Brand in IPL*
Lumea IPL technology.
Philips Lumea uses an innovative light based technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to break the cycle of hair regrowth. Gentle pulses of light are applied at the root and, after several treatments, hair is prevented from growing back.
Philips Lumea, derived from salon professional IPL technology, makes it possible to remove hair safely, effectively and easily at home. Philips Lumea Prestige is the culmination of 14 years of research and development in collaboration with some of the leading dermatologists.
IPL device with curved attachments for each body area
Inspired by the uniqueness of each body area, Philips Lumea Prestige features specifically designed attachments to best suit the needs of the different body areas. The attachments are shaped for optimal skin contact and effectiveness, with bespoke window sizes and filters for ultimate precision. The large, curved body attachment offers fast and effective treatment on larger areas (8.5 min to treat lower legs**), while the small face attachment provides gentle and precise treatment for the upper lip, chin and jawline. The bikini and underarms attachments are specially curved to match those delicate areas and ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.

Suitable Hair And Skin Types
Philips Lumea Prestige works effectively on a wide variety of hair and skin types - from naturally dark blonde, brown and black coloured hairs and on skin tones from very white to dark brown. As with other IPL based treatments, Philips Lumea cannot be used to treat white / grey, light blonde or red hair and is not suitable for very dark skin. This is due to the high contrast required between the pigment in hair colour and pigment in the skin tone.
Studies show up to 92 per cent hair reduction in just 3 treatments***, resulting in smooth, hair-free skin. To maintain results, touch-up every 4 to 8 weeks.
The SmartSkin sensor advises the best setting for your skin tone, anytime you want.

Ultimately I've found this to be an accurate description. Followed instructions to the letter regarding shaving beforehand and regular scheduling... Even downloaded the Lumea app to help keep track of the earlier treatments.
By the end of the first 6 weeks I must admit I was despondent. Hadn't seen any improvement whatsoever, despite my skin/hair colouration meaning I was applicable to safely use the highest (5) setting for the IPL bulb. I even started wondering if I would be one of the anomalies in the initial tests for Lumea who saw more hair growth or indeed seemed completely immune.
In the end, it all became a (worthwhile!) exercise in patience. Kept at it past the 6 week mark out of sheer belligerence, seeing as this item was an expensive investment, but had started falling back on my epilation routines to tide me over. Interestingly, despite having read a number of accounts from reviewers warning not to epliate or wax (anything that pulls the hairs out by the root, really) between treatments, it was only a week or so after the return of my epilating that I realised I was - finally! - getting results from the IPL.
The biggest indicator is the fact the hairs aren't growing as fast or as strongly per usual. They are starting to become very fine which has additionally made epilation much quicker and easier. My epilator, I fear, may well become defunct within a year! The hairs on all parts of the skin I've used Lumea upon are really beginning to give up. At this stage, each stretch of time before another IPL treatment and my using the epilator are becoming longer and longer. I cannot even describe how happy I am with this (long-in-the-coming!) development, as I have dabbled and struggled with pretty much every tool and method of hair-removal since early teens to my late twenties. As a time-tested enemy of body hair I give Lumea my seal of approval and would happily recommend this product to anyone willing to invest in a little more time and effort into remaining hair free.
To conclude: I'm really grateful for this product (and apologies for the massive review!)
Having had electrolosis for years I didn't have high hopes for this.....but after only 2 sessions I am almost hair free!!
I'm delighted with the results so far.
