Can I use Lumea in the bikini or pubic area?

Published on 2021-12-09

Lumea is safe and gentle enough to treat the pubic/bikini area. Please find advice for both females and males below.

Females

For females, Lumea is safe and gentle enough to treat the entire bikini area: the bikini line, mons pubis, labia majora, perineum. So if you want a Brazilian or a Hollywood, go right ahead!

To prevent discomfort, we advise you to treat the inner thighs and buttocks with a lower setting, as this skin can be more pigmented so might be more sensitive.
IPL is not suitable for the 'inner parts' of the bikini area, therefore you should never use Lumea on the labia minora, vagina or anus.

Males

For males, Lumea is safe to treat pubic hairs. Nevertheless, Lumea cannot be used on the whole genital area (pubic bone and scrotum) or anus.
