Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use Philips Lumea all year round?

Yes. You can use your Lumea all year round, including summer. But, if possible, start the treatment in autumn, winter or spring to enjoy a smooth and hair-free summer. There are, however, precautions to be taken before and after tanning. With tanning we mean sunbathing; it is okay to have some sunlight on your skin from being outside.

Tanning before using Philips Lumea:

  • Wait at least 2 weeks after tanning before you use Philips Lumea.
  • Do not use Philips Lumea if you have sunburned skin and for as long as the sunburn persists.
  • Be aware that all types of tanning darken the skin.
  • Always check the recommended skin-hair colour table and, if appropriate, adapt the light intensity to a lower setting to avoid skin reactions and side effects.

Tanning after using Philips Lumea:

  • Your skin will be more sensitive directly after the treatment.
  • Wait at least 48 hours or until all redness has disappeared before you expose treated areas to the sun.
  • Cover treated areas when you go out into the sun or use a sunblock (*30 SPF) in the 2 weeks after treatment.
