The skin tone sensor may not immediately block the treatment on the darker body area. - Hair removal by intense pulsed light sources can cause increased hair growth in some individuals. Based upon currently available data, the highest risk groups for this response are females of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and South Asian heritage treated on the face and neck. - Adapter, light exit window and the filter of the attachments can become very hot after usage. Do not touch the adapter, inner part of the light exit window and the filter or the inner part of the attachments without having these cool down. - This device has a detachable power adapter.

Page: 10
- Tanning with natural or artificial sunlight might influence the sensitivity and color of your skin. Perform a skin test to determine the appropriate light intensity setting. - Before you use Lumea, you should clean your skin and make sure it is hair-free, entirely dry and free from oily substances. - Do not treat the same skin area more than once during a session. This does not improve the effectiveness of the treatment, but increases the risk of skin reactions. - Lumea should never be painful. If you experience discomfort, reduce the light intensity setting. Electromagnetic fields (EMF) This Philips device complies with all applicable standards and regulations regarding exposure to electromagnetic fields. How IPL works 1 With Intense Pulsed Light technology, gentle pulses of light are applied to the skin and absorbed by the hair root. The lighter the skin and the darker the hair, the better the pulses of light are absorbed. 2 The pulses of light stimulate the hair follicle to go into a resting phase. As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is prevented. 15 English
Page: 11
3 The cycle of hair growth consists of different phases. IPL technology is only effective when the hair is in its growing phase. Not all hairs are in the growing phase at the same time. This is why we recommend you to follow the initial treatment phase (4-5 treatments, every treatment 2 weeks apart) and then the follow-up treatment phase (touch-ups every 4-8 weeks) to make sure all hairs are effectively treated in the growing phase. Tip: To assure long lasting hair removal, touch-ups every 4 weeks are recommended. Note: Treatment with Lumea is not effective if you have light blond, grey, red or white hairs as light hairs do not absorb enough light. Below you can see the hair colors for which Lumea is suitable and effective. Suitable body hair colors Note: To check if your body hair color allows usage of the device, consult the hair color table with number 3 on the foldout page. Recommended treatment schedule Initial phase 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 For the first 4 to 5 treatments, we advise you to use Lumea Prestige once every two weeks to ensure that all hairs are treated. Note: Replacing one of the IPL treatments with another hair removal method (waxing, epilating, etc.) will not help to reach the desired hair reduction. Note: If you want to remove hairs in between the Lumea treatments, you can use your normal hair removal method. Touch-up phase 20 20 12 After the initial treatment phase (4-5 treatments), we recommend touch-ups every 4-8 weeks, when you see hairs growing back. This to maintain results and enjoy smooth skin for months. The time between treatments may vary based on your individual hair regrowth and also across different body areas. Tip: You can write the treatment schedule in your agenda to remind yourself of the treatments so you will not forget. Note: Using the device more often does not enhance the effectiveness. 16 English

Treatment time per area 2 1 4 1 1 1 3 1.5 min. 2 min. 1 2 3 4 6.5 min. 4.5 min. 1.5 min. What to expect After initial treatment phase - After the first treatment, it can take 1 to 2 weeks for the hairs to fall out. In the first weeks following the initial treatments, you still see some hairs growing. These are likely to be hairs that were not in their growing phase during the first treatments. - After 2-3 treatments, you should see a noticeable reduction in hair growth. However, to effectively treat all hairs, it is important to keep on treating according to the recommended treatment schedule. 17 English
Page: 13
- After 4-5 treatments, you should see a significant reduction of hair growth in the areas that you treated with Lumea. A reduction of hair density should be visible as well. During touch-up treatment phase - Keep on treating with frequent touch-ups (every 4-8 weeks) to maintain the result. Using your Lumea Prestige before and after tanning Tanning with natural or artificial sunlight Intentionally exposing your skin to natural or artificial sunlight with the aim of developing a tan influences the sensitivity and color of your skin. Therefore the following is important: - After each treatment, wait at least 48 hours before tanning. Even after 48 hours, make sure that the treated skin does not show any redness from the treatment anymore. - In case of exposing your skin to the sun (without tanning intentionally) in the 48 hours after treatment, use a sunblock SPF 50+ on the treated areas. After this period, you can use a sunblock SPF 30+ for two weeks. - After tanning, wait at least 2 weeks before you use Lumea. - After recent tanning, perform a skin test to determine the appropriate light intensity setting. For instructions see chapter 'Skin test'. - Do not use Lumea on sunburned body areas. Note: Occasional and indirect sun exposure does not qualify as tanning. Tanning with creams If you have used an artificial tanning lotion, wait until the artificial tan has disappeared completely before you use the device. Before you use your Lumea Prestige Pretreating your skin Before you use Lumea, you should pretreat your skin by removing hairs on the surface of your skin. This allows the light to be absorbed by the hair parts below the skin surface to ensure effective treatment. You can either shave, short-trim, epilate or wax. Do not use depilatory creams, as chemicals may cause skin reactions. 18 English
Page: 14
If you choose to wax, please wait 24 hours before using Lumea to let your skin rest. We recommend that you take a shower before the treatment to ensure that all possible residue of wax has been removed from your skin. 1 Pretreat the areas you intend to treat with Lumea. 2 Clean your skin and make sure it is hair-free, entirely dry and free from oily substances. Note: if shaving causes skin irritation, we advise you not to use the device until skin irritation is resolved. Skin test When you use Lumea Prestige for the first time or after recent tanning, perform a skin test on each area to be treated. The skin test is necessary to check your skin's reaction to the treatment and to determine the correct light intensity setting for each body area. 1 Attach the right attachment for the area you want to treat. See chapter: 'Attachments'. Note: do not try the device on difficult or sensitive areas (ankle and bony area). 2 Turn on the device. Make sure that you select setting 1. 3 Place the device at a 90° angle on the skin so that the integrated safety system is in contact with your skin. The integrated safety system prevents unintentional flashing without skin contact. 4 Press the flash button to release a flash. 5 Slide the device over the skin to the next area to be treated. 6 Increase the setting by one level, apply a flash and slide the device to the next area. Repeat this for all levels, as long as each level still feels comfortable. See the table in: 'Selecting the right light intensity'. 7 After the skin test, wait 24 hours and check your skin for any reaction. If your skin shows reactions, choose the highest setting that did not result in any skin reaction for subsequent use. Using your Lumea Prestige Skin tone sensor The Lumea Prestige has integrated skin tone sensor which measures the skin tone at the beginning of each session and occasionally during the session. If it detects a skin tone that is too dark for treatment with Lumea, the 'ready to flash' light starts blinking orange and the device automatically disables to prevent you from developing skin reactions. This means that it does not flash when you press the flash button. 19 English

Attachments For optimal results and safety it is important to change attachments per body area. Lumea Prestige offers full body specific treatment having up to four different tailored attachments. To place the attachment, simply snap it onto the light exit window. To remove the attachment, pull it off the light exit window. Note: The device might not work any more and show an error when there is dirt on the attachment connector. Clean the contact leads when this occurs. Body Attachment The body attachment has the largest treatment window and a curved-in design to cover effectively and treat areas below the neckline. Especially large areas such as legs, arms and stomach. Facial Attachment The facial attachment has a precise flat design with extra integrated filter for safe and precise treatment on the sensitive skin on upper lip, chin and sideburns. Note: - Do not treat your eyebrows with Lumea. - When you treat the area above your upper lip, be careful that you do not flash on the lip. Armpit attachment The armpit attachment has a specifically curved-out design to treat hard to reach armpit hairs. 20 English
Page: 16
Bikini attachment The bikini attachment has a specialized design for effective treatment of bikini areas. It has a curved-out design with transparent bikini filter. Hair in this area tends to be typically thicker and stronger than leg hair, therefore the bikini area attachment has a special filter for treating the coarser hair in the bikini area. Selecting the right light intensity Lumea provides 5 different light intensities and advises you on the right setting you should use based on your skin tone. You will always be able to change to a light intensity setting you find comfortable. 1 Press the on/off button to turn on the device. The device starts to operate at light intensity setting 1. Note: To adjust the light intensity setting manually without using the skin advice, use the toggle button until you have reached the required setting. The corresponding intensity light level lights up white. 2 Press the SmartSkin sensor ( ) and put the device to your skin. 3 After the device scanned your skin, the suggested intensity lights will blink white to indicate which intensities you can use based on your skin tone. 4 Press the confirmation button ( ) to confirm that you want to use the suggested setting advice to start using the device. Philips Lumea will automatically use the highest suggested intensity, indicated by a continuous lighting led indicator. Lumea gives you the freedom to select the light intensity that you find most comfortable. If you want to set the light intensity setting manually, please consult the table below. This table shows settings that for the majority of users provides a comfortable, but still effective setting. 5 Using Lumea should never be painful. If you experience discomfort, reduce the light intensity setting. You can do this by using the up-down buttons. Note: The device automatically disables when your skin tone is too dark (skin type VI), to prevent you from developing skin reactions. The ‘ready to flash’ light will blink orange to indicate if the skin tone is too dark. 6 After moving to another body area or recent tanning, perform a skin test to determine the right light intensity setting. To re-activate the setting advice feature, press the magnifying glass symbol. Note: Since body areas might differ in skin color, you need to select the right setting for each body area separately. 21 English
Page: 17
Skin type Skin tone Light intensity setting I White: you always sunburn, never tan. 4/5 II Beige: you easily sunburn, tan minimally. 4/5 III Light brown: you sunburn easily, tan slowly to light brown. 4/5 IV Mid brown: you rarely sunburn, tan easily. 3/4 V Dark brown: you rarely sunburn, tan very easily. 1/2/3 VI Brownish black or darker: you rarely or never sunburn, very dark tanning. You cannot use the device Note: To check if your skin type allows usage of the device, consult the skin tone table with number 2 on the foldout page. Note: Your skin may react differently on different days/occasions for a number of reasons. Handling the device 1 Before use, clean the attachment and the light exit window. 2 Put the small plug in the device and put the adapter in the wall socket. 3 Switch on the device and select the right light intensity for your skin tone. For selecting the right skin tone, you can make use of the setting advice, see chapter: 'Selecting the right light intensity'. 4 Place the device at a 90° angle on the skin so that the integrated safety system is in contact with your skin. The integrated safety system prevents unintentional flashing without skin contact. 22 English
Page: 18
5 Press the device firmly onto your skin to ensure proper skin contact. The ‘ready to flash light’ on the back of the device lights up white to indicate that you can proceed with the treatment. Note: When the ‘ready to flash’ light starts blinking orange, your skin is not suitable for treatment. In this case, the device automatically disables. You can try to use the device on other areas with a lighter skin tone. Note: If the ' ready to flash' light does not light up white, the device is not completely in contact with your skin. TIP: If you use Lumea on your bikini area and want to leave some hair in place, make sure that the skin tone sensor is not placed on the remaining hair during the treatment, as this can cause the device to block. 6 Press the flash button to release a flash. The devices makes a soft popping sound. You should feel a warm sensation because of the flash. Note: The scattered light produced by the device is harmless to your eyes. Do not look at the flash while using the device. It is not necessary to wear goggles during use. Use the device in a well-lit room so that the light is less glaring to your eyes. 7 Place the device on the next area to be treated. After each flash, it takes up to 2 seconds until the device is ready to flash again. You can release a flash when the 'ready to flash' light lights up white. 8 To make sure that you have treated all areas, release the flashes close to each other. Effective light only comes out of the light exit window. Part of the device that is in contact with your skin is slightly larger therefore there should be some overlap. However, make sure you flash the same area only once. Note: Flashing the same area twice does not improve the effectiveness of the treatment, but increases the risk of skin reactions. Note: Do not use any pencil or pen to mark the areas to be treated, as this may cause side effects to your skin. 9 When you have finished the treatment, press and hold the on/off button to switch off the device. Remove the adapter from the wall socket. Note: If you did not use the device for a long period of time, it is important to perform a skin test again. Two treatment modes: Stamp & Flash and Slide & Flash - Your Philips Lumea has two treatment modes for more convenient use on different body areas: - The Stamp & Flash mode is ideal to treat small or curvy areas like knees and underarms. Simply press and release the flash button to release a single flash. 23 English
Page: 19
- The Slide & Flash mode offers convenient use on larger areas like legs. Keep the flash button pressed while you slide the device over your skin to release several flashes in a row. Note: The device needs up to 2 seconds in between two flashes, so make sure that you flash on every area you wish to treat. Sliding too fast over the skin will cause missed spots. After use Common skin reactions Your skin may show slight redness and/or may prickle, tingle or feel warm. This reaction disappears quickly. Dry skin and itching may occur due to shaving or a combination of shaving and light treatment. You can cool the area with an ice pack or a wet face cloth. If dryness persists, you can apply a non-scented moisturizer on the treated area. Rare side effects - Burns, excessive redness (e.g. around hair follicles) and swelling: these reactions occur rarely. They are the result of using a light intensity that is too high for your skin tone. If these reactions do not disappear within 3 days, we advise you to consult a doctor. Wait with the next treatment until the skin has healed completely and make sure you use a lower light intensity. - Skin discoloration: this occurs very rarely. Skin discoloration manifests itself as either a darker patch (hyperpigmentation) or a lighter patch (hypopigmentation) than the surrounding area. This is the result of using a light intensity that is too high for your skin tone. If the discoloration does not disappear within 2 weeks, we advise you to consult a doctor. Do not treat discolored areas until the discoloration has disappeared and your skin has regained its normal skin tone. - Skin infection is very rare but is a possible risk following a (micro)wound, a skin burn, skin irritation etc. 24 English
Page: 20
- Epidermal heating (a sharply defined brownish area which often occurs with darker skin tones and is not accompanied with skin dryness): This reaction occurs very rarely. In case this reaction does not disappear within 1 week, we advise you to consult a doctor. Wait with the next treatment until the skin has healed completely and make sure you use a lower light intensity. - Blistering (looks like small bubbles on the surface of the skin): this occurs very rarely. In case this reaction does not disappear within 1 month or when the skin gets infected, we advise you to consult a doctor. Wait with the next treatment until the skin has healed completely and make sure you use a lower light intensity. - Scarring: often the secondary effect of a burn, which can take longer than a month to heal. - Folliculitis (swelling around hair follicles combined with pustule formation): this reaction occurs very rarely and is the result of bacteria penetrating the damaged skin. In case this reaction occurs, we advise you to consult a doctor as folliculitis may need antibiotic ointment. - Pain: this can occur during or after treatment if you have used the device on skin that is not hair-free, if you use the device at a light intensity that is too high for your skin tone, if you flash the same area more than once and if you use the device on open wounds, inflammations, infections, tattoos, burns, etc. Aftercare After use, you can safely apply lotions, creams, deodorant, moisturizer or cosmetics to the treated areas. If you experience skin irritation or skin redness after treatment, wait until it disappears before applying any product to your skin. If you experience skin irritation after applying a product to your skin, wash it off with water. Note: when following all instructions you may still get skin reactions. In this case stop using the device and contact the consumer care center in your country. 25 English
