Before starting your Philips Lumea treatment, make sure that you select the recommended intensity suitable for your skin and hair colour. Always check the skin tone/hair colour table in the user manual.
Some Philips Lumea models (BRI862, BRI863, BRI864 and BRI95* series) are equipped with a SmartSkin Sensor. The sensor recommends the setting which was comfortable for most women with a skin tone similar to yours. If a treatment feels uncomfortable with these settings you can always lower them manually.
