How do I select the right light intensity for me?


It is vital that you only use the light intensity (setting 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5) recommended for your skin/hair type.

To avoid undesired skin reactions, always first check the skin tone/hair colour chart (see below) and then start with the lowest recommended intensity. If all is well, increase gradually.
If the treatment feels uncomfortable, reduce the intensity. The treatment should not feel painful at any time.
Different areas of the body can be more sensitive than others. Simply adapt the intensity according to the sensation you experience.

Note: Philips Lumea is not suitable for red hair, white/grey hair or light blonde hair. Nor is it suitable for dark skin (Philips Lumea models SC1981-SC1985, SC1991-SC1999) or very dark skin (all models), as it can cause skin damage such as burns, blisters or discoloring.

Furthermore, Philips Lumea comes with a Skin tone/colour sensor (only SC1981-SC1985, SC1996, SC1997, SC1999); this sensor ensures that a pulse will be emitted only on suitable skin colours.
