Amazing product but be cautiousI have first done the treatment last year in may and repeated it after two weeks. After the first treatment, I didn't show any reactions. But after the second treatment, I had a severe reaction with rash and itching. Parts of my legs inflated and it didn't heal for three weeks. After that I was scared to use the device but I tried it again two weeks ago. Again, after the first treatment, the results were promising. Hair was falling out in some places and there was no signs of skin reactions. I repeated the treatment again yesterday. My legs have swollen again and the rash is back. I am using an antibiotic cream to help them. I think the two week span is extremely short. Even in professional salons, they wait for a month between each treatment. Please be cautious.

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!My husband purchased this for both my daughters and I for Xmas. Unfortunatley my younger daughter is quite hairy and is naturally very self conscious about it, so we were extremely keen to try this out. As instructed we were to zap ourselves every 2 weeks initially after shaving. We are now at the end of January and have zapped twice. We noticed a difference in the re-growth after the first use and a significant difference in re-growth and thickness after the second use. My younger daughter used it on her arms which is an area she is very conscious of as they're exposed the most often and it has been great so far. All I can conclude is that it's obviously just going to get better and better as long as we keep up the regular use as instructed. I would say that my daughter found it slightly painful at times on the tops of her legs and underarms but I just turned down the setting a notch and it was fine. I only found it nippy under my arms but as it's such a small area it was manageable. "No pain no gain as they say". It could also depend on where you are in your cycle as to how painful it is. We've started this early too as hoping when the summer comes we'll be hair free and no need for further waxing. I can't recommend this product enough as although it is an extremely expensive item it outweighs the cost of IPL treatment at the salon.

Brilliant productI've had this product for three monts now and i finished the first 5 sessions. It works wonders. The hair on my legs, armpits, belly, grows so slow and a lot thinner than before. I have fair skin and dark body hair and so much of it. I used to shave every day and you could still see the black roots, it was such a pain. Now i only have a few hairs here and there, you can barely see them. I can go weeks with no shaving at all and that's such a confidence boost. I use it on the highest intensity and it's extremely easy to use. Very practical design, and not heavy. My advices would be: avoid the moles and freckles; whenever you feel pain reduce the intensity til there's no pain; always remember to swap the heads for face, body and bikini areas because it's easy to forget; charge it after you finished with it, you'll thank yourself next time; and be patient, it takes time to see the results. After the first two sessions i've only seen a very slight result, you get the feeling that it doesn't work for you. I've started to see a bigger improvement after a week and a half after my third session. I've never seen a change right after the first 3 sessions, the hair grows back as before, only about a week later after every session i noticed i have less hair. I could see hairs from my armpits on my stick deodorant, so it does fall naturally, just not straight away. After the 4th session i only had about 10% hair left. After the 5th, i'd say about 2-3%. Results are long lasting, and i'm extremely satisfied with it. Although it's a bit on the expensive side, it's well worth the money.

Very Impressed!I was very sceptical about this product especially as I am dark skinned (Indian). I usually go to salons but I decided to try this and I am very impressed. I have completed 4 treatments on my leg and have begun to notice patches of smooth hair free skin. I have been using this on my face too and I am slowly seeing results.

Simply amazingI have spent years hating my body hair, it is dark, thick and relentless. I have previously shaved, epillated, waxed and used hair removal creams all of which caused me ingrown hairs, rashes and discomfort. I was unsure about how well lumea could help me but I was so fed up of removing hair everyday I decided to take the plunge. The machine is easy to use, lightweight enough to reach awkward areas and stylish looking. I'm nearly due to do my 4th two weekly starting treatment and I can already see a massive difference. My hair is growing back very slowly, thinner and patchy which is amazing I haven't had a single ingrown hair since my second use! Treatment doesn't take long and I can do it while I'm watching tv. I have found the machine to be pretty much painless I have experienced the odd ping from it in certain areas but I wouldn't say it hurt and its gone in an instant. I use my machine on the highest setting and have so far used it on my bikini area, armpits, face and belly I already no longer have to be ashamed of having a spotty, hairy snail trail. I can't wait to see how the next few treatments go. This is the best thing I have ever bought! Thank you Philips!

Life saver!After having my baby, I didn't find time every 2 weeks to wax and feel pretty, and I'm one of those people who prefer to wax themselves instead of going to a beauty clinic so I bought Lumea. My Husband was very dubious about this product especially he was concerned about the health related risks but I wanted to give it a try.
After purchasing it, I was a little nervous to use it for the first time and took a good couple of weeks reading the manual and understood everything.
I'm a fair skinned Asian woman with black/dark brown hair. I chose to stat with my legs first as I had very thick hair on my legs. For the first few times, the results weren't very obvious but after 4th treatment, my legs showed a very good response. I couldn't believe it. Then I had to go to a holiday for about a month so I didn't pack my Lumea and was scared about damaging it in some way. After missing 1-2 treatments, my hair started to grow back but were definitely thinner. Now I have finished my legs treatment and the results are amazing. I only have to do the treatment once every 8 weeks and my legs stay hair free. Very happy Customer.

Brilliant!I have this product or as I call it my assistant Elmo for just over 3 months and passed the first 4 treatments already. At first I was super worried whether it will harm or irritate my skin as I have very sensitive and gentle skin but after I saw that everything was fine after the initial test (and a few snaps I did in the air just to get comfortable with the light ) I was a bit calmer. After the first two sessions my hair reduced to under 30 % and after the 4th use I had no hair at all. I use the product for my legs, arms, belly, armpits and uper lip and the result is fantastic! It takes me around an hour / hourand a half to get it all done but I read or watch something while I am doing it so time flys. I can do that because there is no pain or noise (which were the two main reasons I couldn't stand epilating anymore ). The only disadvantaged I think theproduct has is that I find it a bit heavy and have to stop a bit for my hand to rest (or switch handswhich I rather not risk as my left hand is a bit useless! ). I have recommended the product to everyone I know because it is brilliant! Thank you guys :)

Still working on it!I have medium tone skin (indian asian - I'm on the fair side for indian skin), i have used this only on my face so far - i didn't want to waste my time doing all areas and after 2 months find it hasn't removed any hair!
but from testing on the sides of my face and upper lip its doing its job quite well. its been about 7 weeks on my upper lip - i do get a few patches of hair but definitely a reduction, i don't shave those patches i just use the lumea which zaps the hair off right away.
i use setting 5 comfortably on my face. it works for me. i have been on the lumea coach programme so learned a lot on how to use and maintain this product and truly believe it helps a lot!
