    Why do I need to remove hair before a Lumea treatment?

    Removing hair from your skin before using Philips Lumea is very important if hair is still visible. You can choose to shave, epilate or wax. Read below why this is necessary.  

    Removing hair from your skin before using Philips Lumea

    IPL is successful on hair-free skin

    For the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment to be successful, the light from your Philips Lumea should reach the hair root. There it heats up the pigment (melanin) and stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase. As a result, hair starts to shed naturally and further hair growth is restricted.

    What happens if I don't remove hair before using my Philips Lumea?

    If you use Lumea while you still have hair on your skin, the light from your Lumea may burn these. This can result in an unpleasant smell and damage your Lumea.

    I don't have many hairs left on my skin. Do I still need to remove them?

    Pre-treatment (removing hair from your skin) is only necessary while you still have visible hair on your skin surface.
