Philips Lumea uses a light-based technology called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), derived from the technology used in professional beauty salons. Philips has adapted this technology for safe and effective use in the comfort of your own home. Philips worked closely with skin care experts to develop this technology, carrying out extensive consumer research on IPL technology with over 2,000 women.
Five Light Energy Settings
Philips Lumea has five adjustable light energy settings to ensure gentle but effective treatment. Used correctly, Philips Lumea's IPL treatment is safe and gentle to use even on sensitive skin and sensitive body areas.
Cordless Convenience With No rReplacement Parts Needed
Lumea's cordless design is ideal for treating the areas you want, when you want. Philips Lumea is a complete solution that comes ready to work right out of the box. More importantly, it does not require any replacement lamps or gels.
Fast treatment on Legs with Slide and Flash Mode
Lumea SC2006 has a wide treatment area with its body attachment that has a 4 cm window. This enables fast treatment on large areas like legs, with treatment on one lower leg now taking just eight minutes. Main application mode enables sliding motion for a more convenient and continuous application.
No Replacement Parts Needed
Philips Lumea is a complete solution that comes ready to work straight out of the box. More importantly, it does not require any replacement lamps or gels.
Lumea is equipped with an integrated UV filter to protect your skin from UV light. It also has an integrated safety system to prevent unintentional flashing. Lumea SC2006 has a lifetime of 100,000 flashes, for endless use.
How does Philips Lumea Prevent Hair Growth?
Gentle pulses of light are applied directly to the hair. The melanin in the hair and hair root absorbs the light pulses. This process results in the follicle going into a resting phase. The hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited. A simple and gentle treatment once every two to four weeks will prevent hair roots from becoming active again and prevent new hair from growing back.
Five Steps to Everlasting Smoothness:
1. Pre-shave the treatment area to ensure the light energy is channeled in the most efficient way to the follicle. This is only required for the first few treatments.
2. Consult the skin and hair type matrix and select the light intensity suitable for your skin tone and body hair colour.
3. Apply gentle pulses of light to the hair. The light produces heat in the hair, which is transferred to the hair follicle. This stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase.
4. As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is inhibited.
5. To prevent hairs from growing back, the treatment must be repeated every two weeks (or every month for legs) which will progressively reduce hair regrowth to a minimum.
Is Lumea Right For Me?
Philips Lumea works effectively on (naturally) dark-blonde, brown and black hair. As with other light-based treatments, it is not suitable for (naturally) red, grey and light blonde hair or for very dark skin types. Please consult the comparison table to determine which light intensities are most suitable for your skin and body hair colour and to check if this method is suitable for you at all (if it is not, this is indicated with an x).
Unfortunately, Philips Lumea is not designed for everyone. If any of the following is true for you, then this appliance is not suitable for you to use.
- If your natural hair colour in the treatment areas is light blonde, white, grey or red.
- If you have naturally dark brown or very dark brown skin, you rarely or never get sunburnt and you tan very darkly. In this case you run a high risk of developing skin reactions such as strong redness, burns or discolouration when you use Philips Lumea.
- Philips Lumea has been optimised for use by women but recent research showed that it can be used by men on most areas of the body, except the beard and scrotum.
- There are medications and health conditions that may lead to adverse reactions when you use Philips Lumea.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
before i bought this machine I paid a fortune for a full back professional laser treatment in a high street saloon. took me a year to complete the treatment as i tan very easy and the technician would refuse to treat me. well, the treatment worked somehow, my hair is thinner but didn't vanish completely.
so i decided to buy this Philips machine. IT WAS CHANGED MY LIFE !! I done it myself on my chest, belly and upper arms. wow, I am buzzing in confidence. i take my top at the beach, swimming pool, etc...
I also asked someone to use my Phillips to go over my back again and the results are visible (or no hair visible rather)
I am writing this review because I know there is other men in my situation and are sceptic to buy this machine for their skin to be brown as mine. yes, it will feel like burning when on high level but it target the black hair and it will work. I use aloe Vera after every session and my skin is back to normal in minutes.
Has been around 2 years since I bought this machine. I still have to treat my chest now and then. maybe once every 3 month and that's all it's needed to keep a smooth chest and upper arms and shoulders.
I have noticed a huge difference to my legs straight away. Huge patches where nothing grows for ages. Really impressed with how quickly you see effects.
I would agree with the people who say that different areas seem to work faster/slower than others. It definitely appears the darker/courser areas are taking longer to see the effects. Also, it seems that the machine prevents the hairs from growing back so quickly rather than stopping them altogether. I am hoping that it will begin stopping after more uses.
A few minor negative things. The machine doesn't come with eye protection. The laser is very bright and I felt uncomfortable using it without goggles as felt blinded with each zap.
The bag it comes in isn't very protective and as some people have said a hard case would be better for a machine which is so pricey.
Quite time consuming zapping and I would recommend buying the white pencil to mark where you have zapped.
However, even though I have had it over a year I have only used the machine a handful of times and am impressed. May change my review to 5 stars if after more uses I see even more effects.
I shave and use the Philips Lumea all over, and by all over, I literally mean all over (except for head and eyebrows! now that would just be weird). I use the device every two weeks as recommended and have been doing so for almost 4 months. the areas of my body that have had around 8 treatments, hair no longer grows. at least I don't see any growing. the areas that had around 4 treatments, hair is growing incredibly slowly. I'm only shaving these parts of my body approximately once every 6 weeks or so. theres one area of my body that I never had professional laser treatment done on. my pubic area. I started using the Philips Lumea on this area and after 4 treatments the hair grows back very sparingly! on areas such as my pubic region, underarms and upper lip, I use the device once every week.
I'm amazed! I intend to use this device for a year every one/two weeks. at the rate this is going, I'll have a hairless body by the end of the year!!
have around 6 sessions of professional laser treatment on most of your body before using this device. it will work out cheaper than solely having professional treatment and quicker than just using this device alone.
When doing my face, you see the bright light on your eyes, even though you don't use the thing near your eyes. I'm really disappointed with this hyped up item. Waste of money. Will now be getting my eyes checked.
I would not recommend it, dont feel it is safe to use And I would never buy this or anything like it again.
Don't believe the hype.
