Philips Lumea Advanced effectively prevents the regrowth of hair on the body. The gentle light pulses ensure silky smooth skin every day with regular use.

Here’s our Philips Lumea Advanced BRI923 Hair Removal Review.

PROS (acording to the manufacturer)

  • Professional IPL technology for the home, developed with dermatologists

    IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Philips Lumea treats the hair roots with gentle light pulses, putting the hair follicles into a resting state. Consequently, the amount of hair growth gradually decreases. With treatment repetitions, your skin remains wonderfully hair-free and noticeably smooth. The treatment for less hair growth is safe and gentle, even on sensitive areas. Philips Lumea is clinically tested and developed together with dermatologists – for an easy and effective treatment, in the comfort of your own home.

  • Integrated skin tone sensor

    The integrated sensor the skin tone of the skin to be treated at the beginning of each session and from time to time during the treatment. If a skin tone is detected that is too dark for treatment with this product, light pulses are automatically no longer emitted.

  • Very fast IPL.

    Treat both legs in less than 5 minutes at the lowest energy level. 2 times faster than the previous Silk-expert 5. The Silk’n Infinity 400,000 IPL hair remover allows a full body treatment in less than 20 minutes. And all without pain, skin irritation or ingrown hairs.

  • Suitable for all skin tones and most hair colours

    The Silk’n Infinity is suitable for all skin tones, including the darkest skin colours and almost all hair colours. That includes redheads, blondes, and greys. It also has a unique built-in Skin Colour Sensor, which stops the device from emitting a strong light pulse if your skin tone is too dark. The clever safety mechanism means that light can only emit upon contact to your skin.

  • Precision attachment for extra safety during facial treatments

With its additional, integrated light filter, the attachment is ideal for safely removing facial hair from the upper lip, chin, cheeks and other sensitive areas.

  • Special attachment for hair removal in the bikini area
Attachment for effective hair removal in the bikini area. The hair in this area is usually stronger and thicker than leg hair.
  • Special edition with Satin Compact correction trimmer
The Philips Trimmer on the go is a separate device that allows quick and easy removal of even the finest hairs on the body and face.

One disadvantage of the Philips Lumea Advanced BRI923 is that the device is tied to a cable, which slightly limits its use. It is also not suitable for people with darker skin tones and people with red, grey, white or light blonde hair.



Visible results after only a few treatments! I am thrilled with the product and would recommend it to any friend as it doesn’t take long. There is nothing more beautiful than a hair-free body. I find the choice of levels very advantageous because I can decide for myself how high it should be. I love the packaging and the design of the product!”

Simple and effective treatment. I have been toying with the Lumea Advanced for a long time, but I was somehow always sceptical about the effect. Now I have tried the device for several weeks. In the initial phase, the treatment is repeated 4 to 5 times every 2 weeks. After that, regular use every 4 to 8 weeks is enough. My hair grows very strongly, especially on my legs. When I shave, I have to do it again after two days at the latest because dark stubble is clearly visible. The Lumea Advanced is very easy and painless to use. The right light intensity level is selected using a table to determine the skin tone. Before treatment, the areas to be depilated should be shaved and cleaned. Then the device is held lightly on the areas to be treated and even light pulses are triggered by pressing the flash button. Already after the first two treatments, I could see that my hair growth was clearly reduced. The hair did not grow as fast as I was used to. I completed my initial phase with the next treatment. The package also included an extra attachment with an additional integrated light filter, which is suitable for hair removal on the upper lip, chin and cheeks. I also use this regularly and have achieved similar results with it. The attachments are easy to change. Cleaning the device is also very easy. The soft cloth provided is moistened with water and the light exit surfaces and contact surfaces are cleaned with it. I don’t like the fact that the unit is connected to a cable. Therefore, you are always tied to a socket when using it. But the cable is quite long, so you are not restricted when using the device. The Lumea Advanced absolutely convinced me of its handling and effect, although I was very sceptical at first. I would never have thought that hair removal could be so easy, painless and effective. I received the Lumea Advanced IPL hair removal device as part of a product test.”


Our Verdict:

The hair removal device convinces both visually and functionally and provides great results after just a few applications. The device is of high quality and easy to use. This way, you can remove your hairs professionally from home – and certainly for several years. The high quality and the most modern technologies promise a long durability of the device if it is well cared for and used according to the rules.
