About this product
Enjoy up to 8 weeks* of naturally smooth, hair free skin, as chosen by over one million women. If you are looking for a safe, fast and painless solution to unwanted hair with lasting results, Philips Lumea is the ultimate choice. *after 4-5 initial treatments.

Philips ipl has been developed with leading dermatologists. Gentle pulses of light are applied that put the hair into the resting phase. These hairs naturally shed in the 1-2 weeks post treatment and further regrowth is inhibited, leaving you with silky smooth skin.
The bri861 comes with 1 specially designed attachment for the body. It also features two treatment modes; slide and flash is ideal for treatment of larger areas - simply glide the device over the skin. To treat curvy areas or target zones choose the step and flash mode.
This lumea is designed for corded use - just plug the device into the mains and start using.
Model number: bri861/00.
Apply gentle pulses of light to the hair: the light produces heat in the hair, which is transferred to the hair follicle. This stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase. Apply lumea every 2 weeks for the initial 4-5 treatments. In between treatments, hair falls out naturally and regrowth is inhibited. For best results, we recommend an 8 week schedule, followed by touch ups every 2-4 weeks.

Impossible to tell yet
It takes a few months at the earliest to notice a difference but as for the device itself, it works right out of the box and has a good length cable
No improvement and stopped working
I'm very disappointed with this product. I've been using it for about a month now, followed exactly what the instructions said and I haven't seen any improvement. I've taken very good care of it putting back in the box after every use and now the laser had stopped working, it turns on but nothing happens when I press the button. What a waste of money.
good product but only time will tell
I purchased this for doing my wife's legs and face. So far it is easy to use but could do with an adapter to make it easier to use on the face around the chin area. After using it now for a few times there seems to be a bit of a difference but only time will tell how good it is at reducing the hair growth completely
Hi Kali, good question! I wouldn't recommend using Lumea next to salon IPL treatments. Using IPL more often than recommended will not speed up the hair removal process and might even cause some skin irritation. I hope this was helpful. Feel free to reach out to me via Facebook (philips.to/UKFBMessenger), Twitter (philips.to/UKCareTwitter) or phone (philips.to/UKContact) should you have any additional questions. Me and my colleagues are always happy to help.

Hey Sally, thanks for asking! The BRI861 emits a maximum optical energy 5.7 - 12.8J. This is not on every cm2, but that's the optical energy over complete light. Cheers, Remco
