Very Happy with Product
Mine has worked perfectly for about 2 years and I have been really happy with it.
I used it a lot - both on myself and my husband. I was very skeptical when I bought it, but I have done my legs, underarms, bikini line, even my arms and none of the hair has grown back and I don't have to do any hair removal at all anymore. You do have to use it a few times on each area but you will notice the difference after 3rd - 4th time. Even after the 1st time, the hair is a lot slower in growing back. The hair does have to be quite dark (I was a per...fect candidate with pale skin and black hair - and my legs were really hairy for a female). My husband is Italian and has olive skin and it didn't work as well. Some parts where he is very tanned, it didn't work at all and others, it slowed the growth quite a lot but I think it did eventually grow back (but he didn't use it as many times as I did though). Negatives - it does start to get quite hot after a while - the part that you press on your skin, so I always did the sensitive areas first otherwise it was fine on my legs even when it was hot. The charger lasted probably enough almost do one full leg but as it does get quite hot, I think it is better to let it cool down after a while anyway. Positives - I have had my bikini line and underarms lasered once by a professional and it really hurt - like a burn. The Phillips Lumea doesn't hurt anywhere near as much - barely hurts at all, you may have to do it a few more times than if you got it done professionally but it will work out a lot cheaper and a lot more convenient - I used to do it while watching tv.
Battery died after 15 months
As above - have contacted place of purchase who are only replacing but I want a refund so I am now speaking to the ACCC as it is a known fault; is major and I certainly would not have purchased the product f I had known the high chance of the battery failing. I think Phillips is being irresponsible for continuing to sell this product with the faulty battery and especially when it is so exspensive!

Questions & Answers
Unfortunately hair grew back after 9 month of usage.
I never missed a treatment i'm following all the application's instructions and i have a white skin with black hair.
I was super happy with the results until this month i noticed hair growing back on my legs, underarms and some of the facial hairs as well.
Im not sure but i thought this devise's results last!
is this device permanent treatment? do i have to use it forever? it just delays the period of hair growing? I shaved for my treatment two weeks ago and now i got hair all over my legs again? is that normal?
I use the same device and I had very hairy legs for a female including my bikini line and underarms and my hair has not grown back in any areas and it has been well over a year now that I haven't had to barely use it at all or do any hair removal so it is permanent but you do need to use it a few times initially and it will just get less and less. I probably get a stray hair here and there but otherwise, I am completely hair free . Keep using it, I can't remember how many times I had to use it to completely get rid of my hair but it is worth it and certainly a lot cheaper than going to a professional. I also didn't bother shaving beforehand (once my hair was a lot less - I certainly had to shave at the start as it could burn if you didn't), so maybe once you have a lot less hair, don't shave before you use it - it is still just as effective and at least then you can see the areas you need to do.
Thanks for reaching out to us. We're sorry to hear you're not quite happy with the results of your Lumea Prestige. However, 100% permanent hair removal is highly unlikely, Regardless of whether IPL is used at home or at a salon, regular maintenance will always be required to keep the skin fully hair-free. The Lumea is thus intended to use on a regular basis (i.e. according to the schedule provided). To maintain hair-free skin, we recommend repeating the Lumea treatment every four to eight weeks. For more information, we'd like to refer you to the FAQ page of the Lumea: https://www.philips.com.au/c-p/SC2009_00/lumea-ipl-hair-removal-device/support. You can always also reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter. We hope this is helpful. Should you have any further questions, just let us know.

Hi!I heard that sc2007 is discontinued by Philips,if yes why is it so? Because I was to about buy sc2007
Thanks for the interest in the SC2007. How odd to hear that your heard that this model was being discontinued, because our website shows a retailer where it still can be purchased: https://www.philips.com.au/c-p/SC2007_00/lumea-ipl-hair-removal-device. At the moment, it is out of stock, though, so we advise you to get in touch with the retailer and ask them when it should be back in. Hope this helps!

Hello, I purchased lumia prestige
I bought it few months ago and today was my first use for the device
It worked just fine and I had to charge it again, after charging and starting my laser session again it worked for awhile then suddenly in the middle of the session the green light ( ready light )stopped working
The device is still running and I can hear the sound but no ready sign so I’m unable to use it again
I live in the Middle East but I need to know what’s the possible cause of the problem and what should I do?
Thanks for reaching out about this. Concerning this situation we would certainly recommend to get in touch with a local product expert, as they might be able to help you best. You could find the appropriate contact through http://philips.com/support/, but you're also welcome to reach out to us on social media. We'll gladly get you in touch with the Middle Eastern team over there as well.
In any case, we hope to talk to you soon to figure this out.
