Clean your skin and make sure it is hair-free, entirely dry and
free from oily substances (e.g. present in cosmetic products like
deodorants, lotions, perfumes, tanning creams and sunscreens).
Check the appliance, especially the light exit window and attachment,
for trapped hair, dust and fibres. If you see any contamination, clean
the appliance according to the instructions in chapter 'Cleaning and
If shaving causes wounds or lesions, your skin may be more sensitive
and the light treatment may sometimes feel uncomfortable.
Once the hairs stop growing back, which usually happens after
4-5 treatments, you no longer have to shave before you use the appliance.

Setting the light intensity

Philips Lumea Precision Plus is an appliance developed for consumer
use at home and therefore not comparable with professional light-based
appliances with respect to pain sensation. The pulses of light delivered
by Philips Lumea Precision Plus are gentler than those from professional
appliances and therefore you can expect a convenient and effective
treatment. You have to adjust the light intensity to your skin and body
hair colour and to a level you find comfortable. The recommended light
intensities table below helps you to establish the right light intensity
Consult the table below to determine which light intensities are most
suitable for your skin and body hair colour and to check if this method
is suitable for you (if it is not, this is indicated with x in the table).
Each body area and possibly even parts of a body area may require a
separate appropriate light intensity according to the recommended
light intensities table below. The method is more effective at higher
intensities, but you should reduce the light intensity if you experience
any pain or discomfort.
Note: The required light intensity for different body areas may vary due to
different skin colours. For example, the skin of the lower legs can be darker
than the skin of the underarms due to more sun exposure.
Persons with darker skin run a higher risk of skin irritation because their
skin absorbs more light. Therefore lower intensities are recommended
for persons with darker skin.
The light pulse can feel warm or hot on the skin but should never be
painful. To prevent skin reactions, see chapter 'Using the appliance',
section 'Possible side effects and skin reactions'.

Recommended light intensities (1-5)

In the table below, 'x'means that the appliance is not suitable for you.
