The Philips Lumea IPL hair removal system is a hand-held device that works with an innovative light-based technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), commonly found in professional, salon-based hair removal treatments. You can now use this technology in the comfort of your own home to inhibit the reappearance of hair and enjoy smooth skin everyday.
The Philips Lumea is a cost-effective alternative to salon-based laser hair removal treatments. Based on 2011 UK average prices, by choosing Philips Lumea over salon hair removal treatments you could save on average over £2000!*

The Philips Lumea IPL hair removal system is an easy-to-use, handheld device that doesn't just remove hair; it prevents it from reappearing so you can enjoy smooth skin every day. Philips Lumea and Philips Lumea Precision work by applying gentle pulses of light to the hair, which are absorbed by the hair's melanin. An internal optical filter ensures no UV light reaches the skin and leaves it unharmed. This light energy stimulates the hair root to go into a resting phase. In the following days the hair will shed naturally and hair growth is inhibited.
Optimal results can be seen within four to five treatments and regular use offers long-lasting smooth skin results.
Philips Lumea IPL hair removal system is a clinically proven and safe hair removal device. It has been developed with leading dermatologists and clinically tested on over 2,000 women.
Philips Lumea IPL products can be used with confidence to remove hair on body parts including legs, underarms, bikini area, arms, stomach and face (Lumea Precision). Philips Lumea Precision is specially designed for use on even the most sensitive skin and is the only at home IPL device with extra protection for the face. Philips Lumea Precision includes a precision attachment with an additional UV light filter providing extra protection for treating delicate areas.
The device also features five adjustable light-intensity settings to ensure that the treatment is safe and gentle for a range of hair colours and skin tones.
When tested*, 82% of women preferred Philips Lumea's IPL hair removal system to conventional methods, including waxing, shaving and epilation.
