Using Advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL), Lumea offers one solution to replace conventional hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, creams, gels and epilators. As well as being effective for legs, arms, back and tummy, Lumea comes with a specially designed precision attachment for use on the face. Lumea's SC1997 corded design is suitable for treating the areas you want, when you want.

To maintain these results, simply repeat treatment every four to six weeks. Time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth.*

IPL Technology

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 2000 women.

Customised Treatment

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.

No Replacement Parts Needed

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.
