Philips Lumea: Laser Hair Removal at Home Yes or No?

In March, will be released one of the novelties of Philips to the Epilator. It is of Lumea, a unit of laser hair removal. I would like to open with you a debate on this technique and its realization in the home.

Last year, it released the first version of this product, Satinlux. Few units were produced to see the reaction of clients and developed a new model with improvements, which is the current Lumea.

Sure some of you know-like hair removal home systems, such as the TRIA Beauty It uses technology laser, Unlike Lumea which is intense pulsed light (also present in the aesthetic professional).

How does Lumea intense pulsed light?

Lumea shoot this light flashes that cause heat. Hair, which we have previously shaved, acts as a driver and that heat comes up to the follicle, making the hair fall. This system makes that the hair growth go by inhibiting and each time the sessions may be more spaced out.

It is important that the hair is shaved as the device light is absorbed by the melanin. If there is much quantity of melanin (hair is long) could burn us. The same thing would happen with moles or spots, or if we are excessively tanned. In these cases, its use is discouraged, also in the face. The light intensity levels can adapt according to our skin color.

Although one might think first that it burns, actually almost do not feel anything. I have tried it in the Palm of your hand and you feel a small flash of heat, but nothing more. In areas with shaved hair feeling is a bit more intense but does not become painful.

Security in Lumea

To be a laser hair removal home device and not be managed by specialists, but people like you and me, Lumea must be incorporated certain security systems.

For example, the device You can not shoot into the air, his head has to be completely stuck to the skin to work (there is a light that lets you know when you can shoot). This makes that it’s not necessary to use special glasses to use. Also switches off automatically if the unit is overheats.

How long its effect?

The first four or five sessions have to repeat them each two weeks. The first, with shaved hair, and the following when the hair begins to grow. Later, sessions, coming to make a are spaced per month, for example, for the maintenance of the legs. In armpits and English, as hair is thicker, you can space of two to three weeks. And again, the maintenance, because as I said earlier, Lumea inhibits the growth of hair and makes you have to wax us less frequently and do not have to wait for that hair out completely, but It is not a permanent hair removal system.

The debate about laser hair removal at home

Lumea costs 499 euros and it has an approximate life of 40,000 shots, more or less 7 years (for shaving a whole leg are needed a 320-380 shots). If we divide the price between those seven years, we get an amount of almost 72 dollars. Seen thus, looks fairly profitable one of a fotodepiladora at home in comparison with the prices of cosmetic consultations.

But do you you think? You prefer to go to a specialized center of confidence or conversely see an investment to make yourselves this type of hair removal in your home? And I’m going beyond prefer traditional home hair removal methods until you have one consolidation of these new technologies?
