We’ve tried everything when it comes to removing unwanted body hair: waxing, shaving, creams, threading, gels, epilators, shouting at it – everything – spending an average of £500 a year on hair removal. And nothing is as effective as the Philips Lumea Prestige IPL hair-removal system.
Using advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, the Lumea essentially puts your hair to sleep, stopping regrowth. It works by sending pulses of light to the hair follicles, which heats them up and sends hair into a ‘resting phase’ that prevents new hair from growing back. Treated hair will fall out naturally a few days later, while you continue with your busy life – smooth and hair-free.
And the best thing? It’s totally stress-free. Unlike more traditional (and often messy) hair-removal methods – where you end up balancing over the bathtub in your towel – you can use the Philips Lumea wherever and whenever. Whether that’s sitting on the sofa in front of your favourite box set, or 10 minutes in the bathroom, the Philips Lumea is cordless so you can use it where it’s convenient to you.
With five settings to ensure effective treatment across five different skintones and body hair colours (it’s not effective on red, grey or light blonde hair and not suitable for very dark skin), the Lumea comes with three attachments, specifically designed to target different areas. One for the larger areas such as your legs. Another gently tackles the coarser hair around your bikini line. And a third with an additional filter makes using the Lumea on your face and other sensitive areas safe and easy.
For totally smooth results, remove hair by shaving or epilating before turning the unit on and pressing the Lumea to your skin. Wait for the light to turn on and press the button, slowly sliding the Lumea across the treatment area. Avoid flashing the same spot. If you’re worried about pain, don’t be. The process is painless.

Clinical studies have shown significant hair reduction in as little as four to five fortnightly treatments. So after only eight to 10 weeks up to 75% of treated hair will be ‘fast asleep’. Repeat the treatment every four to six weeks, depending on your hair regrowth, and hair will be banished for ever. And because it’s a one-off purchase (with 250,000 bulb flashes to be used – six years usage), you won’t need to budget for a monthly wax.
It’s not hard to see why the Philips Lumea is already trusted by more than a million women. Philips has been researching IPL for 12 years, so they know what they’re talking about. It’s easy to use, and unlike salon treatments, it won’t leave you with a shaving rash or red patches. It’s the perfect solution for professional, smart women with no time to mess about with hair removal. Tempted to give it a shot? Click here to meet the women who did…
