Philips SC1981/50 Lumea Comfort IPL Hair Removal System
Prevents Hair Regrowth with Professional Results at Home
Enjoy silky-smooth skin every day with the Philips Lumea Comfort IPL Hair Removal System. Gentle and effective even on the most sensitive areas of the body, this light-based system uses IPL technology derived from professional salons to deliver up to 75% hair reduction after only four treatments or two months (when used bi-weekly on lower legs). It includes a skin tone sensor to ensure your skin and hair tone are suitable, as well as five adjustable light energy settings to ensure gentle but effective treatment. The Philips Lumea Comfort is intended for use on light to medium skin tones and on naturally dark blond, brown, and black hair. Unlike other brands, Philips Lumea Comfort does not require any replacement parts. The device provides six years of full body treatments with no replacement lamps.
How IPL Technology on Philips Lumea Works
Philips, a leader in healthcare and lighting with more than 100 year of experience, has adapted the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology used in professional salons for effective use at home. Philips Lumea Comfort IPL technology has been developed with dermatologists for optimal results, and has been clinically proven and tested in over 2000 women. The IPL technology used in Philips Lumea applies gentle pulses of light to the hair. The light produces heat, which is transferred to the hair follicle and triggers it to go into a resting phase. As a result, the hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited. Applied regularly, these light pulses keep your skin smooth and hair-free. Clinical studies have shown up to 75% hair reduction after only four treatments (when used bi-weekly on lower legs).
How to Use Philips Lumea to Achieve Optimal Results
Shave the skin before treatment. Select your preferred energy setting and place the skin contact surface on your skin. The skin tone sensor automatically senses if the hair and skin tone are suitable and ensures device only activates if IPL will work on your skin tone. The ready warning light will start blinking. You can then press the flash bottom and use the slide and flash motion for continuous application. Apply Lumea Comfort every two weeks for the initial four to five treatments. In between treatments, hair sheds naturally and growth is inhibited. Repeat the treatment when needed (time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth). When following this treatment regimen you may experience up to 75% hair reduction after only four treatments (or two months)* resulting in smooth hair-free skin.
Treatment Areas and Suitable Hair and Skin Tones
Philips Lumea Comfort is gentle enough to use all over your body including most sensitive areas. Treatment areas include legs, armpits, bikini area, stomach, and arms. Application times range from 1-1.5 minutes for armpits and bikini lines to 11 minutes for the lower leg area. The Philips Lumea Comfort IPL Hair Removal System is suitable for different hair and skin tones and works effectively on naturally dark blond, brown, and black hair. As with other light-based treatments, it is not effective on red, light blond, white, or gray hair. The skin tone sensor measures your skin complexion at the beginning of each session and occasionally during the session. If it detects a skin tone that is too dark, it will automatically stop emitting pulses.
