One of the best products I’ve bought.
I am so happy I’ve bought this machine instead of waisting more time and money at beauty salons.
At salons you need to wait 6-8 weeks in between appointments and they can be very costly. Using this machine at home means you can use it every 2-3 night meaning you get really fast results and this product works so good. I’m really happy with my purchase.
Purchased in November 2020 for $350.00.

A worthwhile investment
I have one regret about this purchase and it’s that I didn’t invest in the Philips Lumea Prestige sooner.
My first impression of this device was that it is so quiet you could do it in the lounge room while you watch a movie with your family and not disturb anyone.
It’s the most ergonomic IPL design available on the market so you won’t end up with RSI after using it. It’s unbelievably fast and even on the highest setting it is very comfortable to use and has not caused me irritation.
I previously owned the E-one ($3k) and also the VISS unit (...
Purchased in August 2020 at Myer for $799.00.
I’ve been using this for 8 months and I can honestly say, it has significantly reduced hair on my body. The stragglers that grow back are finer. I’m using every month now for maintenance and even then, I am asking myself if I should stretch the duration between treatment. So easy, quick and convenient.
I have concerns on battery life when used as a cordless as I’ve read the batteries can NOT be replaced so I plug into the wall every time and works well because its quicker between zaps.
I dropped the setting down a level on sensitive areas and even then seem to be effective.
I have dark hair and olive skin.

Significant reduction in hair growth
I have used the Phillips IPL Prestige on my legs and on my arms. I made sure I have completed the recommended four sessions with two weeks gap in between the sessions. I must say my hair growth has reduced almost by 80% after the first four sessions. I have been irregular in the last 3-4 months. However, I am impressed to see that the hair hasn’t grown back much. I’m very happy with the purchase. This can be used plugged in or without connecting to the power source. Noticed that it’s quicker to use when plugged in.
Purchased in February 2019 at Shaver Shop Online store for $500.00.
Absolutely love it!
This model came with 3 extra heads and can be used corded or with battery power.
I waited until this model because my previous expensive laser (!) device from the US stopped working when the rechargeable battery became worn out.
Being able to use this IPL device while connected makes it also faster than using it with battery power. I use the glide method to cover larger areas while plugged in. Faster and no need to constantly press the button to fire.
While the laser had only a tiny head, this model can cover legs so much faster!

This is perfect, can't live without it
Loved using this product! The attachments are great to help hair loss across different parts of the body. The Lumea Prestige detects your skin tone and works its magic! So quick and easy to use.
Questions & Answers
Hi! I bought my machine in February 2021, I used the machine twice and there were marks on the machine's glass window. And I don't know if I should continue using it, if the machine has any problems?
Thank you for submitting a review. We always recommend cleaning properly after use. This meaning: (1) unplugging and letting the device cool down, (2) removing the attachment of your IPL, (3) with a damp cloth cleaning through both the attachment and the light exit screen, and (4) storing device and attachment in a dust free place after the parts are dry.
If there are other particular worries as to the nature of these marks, we'd like to refer you to our product team for more information. You can reach them directly on 1300 363 391 (Australia), or 0800 658 224 (New Zealand) from Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST. They'll be happy to help.

Philips advertises the Lumea Prestige as its most effective IPL machine, offering effective and gentle hair removal.
This premium model certainly has a high number of features, including options for either corded and portable use, Sense IQ technology, a Smart Skin sensor to detect skin tone, and four precision attachments designed with tailored programs for underarms, face (chin, upper lip and jawline), bikini and body (arms, legs and face).
There are even pictures of the corresponding body area on the attachment caps for convenience. You can also manage your treatments using the Philips Lumea IPL app.
Philips recommends, according to its website, that you ‘carry out the first four treatments every two weeks, and the next eight treatments every four weeks. After 12 treatments you can enjoy six months of hair-free smooth skin.’
Of interest, the Prestige Lumea has also been awarded 5/5 stars by beautyheaven.com.au.
