Philips Lumea Advanced Review

Philips Lumea Advanced review feature

There’s something divine about smooth, hair-free skin – the clean appearance, the silky texture – but there’s nothing divine about the traditional methods of hair removal! Waxing, creams, gels, and epilators all get the job done – but they can be messy, smelly, or painful, and the results are often short-lived.

That’s why Philips designed the Laser BRI923/00 Lumea Advanced Hair Removal System. It provides safe, long-lasting, and painless results, for beautifully smooth, hairless skin. And yes, this machine can be used by men for effective hair removal on most areas of the body.

Philips Lumea Advanced BRI923/00 Overview

Advanced Hair Removal Technology

Philips is no stranger to personal care products and grooming tools – the company has a long history of design and manufacturing, and a strong reputation for quality. The Lumea Advanced utilizes Advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to remove body hair. Philips has twelve years of experience in IPL – you can trust that the Lumea System will give you the outcome you want.

Salon-Quality Results – at Home!

The IPL technology found in the Lumea Hair Removal System is based on the same type of technology used in professional salons. Philips collaborated with dermatology experts and performed thorough consumer research with over 2,000 women before tweaking the IPL system to make it safe and effective to use in a home environment. It’s possible to get salon-quality results for a fraction of the price, in the comfort of your own home.

One Device for Whole-Body Hair Removal

There’s a big difference between your bikini area and your shins. Tackling hair on such drastically different surfaces often requires more than one grooming tool – or a very steady hand. Fortunately, the Philips Lumea can remove hair from any part of your body, without the risk of cuts, tugging, or irritation.

To treat larger areas, it’s as simple as setting the device to Slide and Flash mode and gliding it over your skin. For curved or sensitive areas, use Step and Flash mode. The Lumea includes a special attachment for extra-precise hair removal.

Easy to Use Philips IPL System

Check Deals on

Most people find the Lumea easy to use. Begin by shaving the area you intend to treat. You won’t have to repeat this step more than a few times – doing so simply ensures the emitted light energy effectively reaches your hair follicles.

After selecting the appropriate light intensity, use the Lumea to gently apply pulses of light to your body hair. The light creates heat, which is transferred to the hair follicles, triggering them to go dormant and halting hair growth. Repeat the process every 2 weeks to 1 month, depending on the body part being treated.

Fast Treatment Times

You won’t need to spend hours removing your body hair – the Philips Lumea works quickly. The face and individual underarms take only 1 minute each; the entire bikini area can be treated in 8 minutes, and each leg takes between just 8 and 15 minutes. When you’ve finished, simply plug the included adapter into a mains outlet. 100 minutes of charging time provide power for 370 flashes.

Convenient, Safe and Built to Last

Consumers are tired of spending money on products that were “made to break”. There’s no need to worry about that happening with the Philips Lumea Hair Removal System – it works right out of the box, is rated for 100,000 flashes, and is a one-time purchase. Unlike other devices, there are no moving parts to replace, and the cordless design untethers you from annoying power cables, letting you remove hair anywhere, any time.

The integrated UV filter and safety system protect both the skin against ultraviolet radiation and the eyes against accidental flashes.

The Final Verdict

Philips’ Lumea Hair Removal System takes the pain out of getting smooth, touchably soft skin. It’s a beautifully designed device, and while not inexpensive, saves you a significant amount of money over the long run when compared to frequent salon visits. If you want the cleanest, most effective whole-body hair removal system for home use, look no further than the Philips Lumea BRI923/00 Advanced!

I’ll admit it… I was very sceptical that this laser hair remover would work, but the raving reviews from happy customers achieving great results with this product speak volumes for its effectiveness.
