After you have read the user manual and checked that the Philips Lumea is suitable for you, you are ready for the Initial Test.
Different body parts require different settings, so you must perform a separate test for each area to be treated, following the four steps below.
1.Pre-shave the treatment area to ensure the light energy is channelled to the follicle in the most efficient and gentle way. This is only required for the first few treatments, while you are experiencing hair regrowth.
2.Select the light intensity according to 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 re-growth is inhibited.
*Clinical studies show best results after four or five bi-weekly treatments. For smooth, hair free skin every day, simply repeat treatment every four to six weeks. Time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth.
On average, it will take approximately 1.5 minutes to treat each underarm, 5 minutes to treat the entire bikini area and 1 minute to treat the upper lip / chin / sideburns while it takes around 20 minutes to treat one full leg.
