How does the SmartSkin sensor work for Philips Lumea Prestige?

Published on 30 January 2023

The SmartSkin sensor on your Philips Lumea Prestige recommends the setting which was comfortable for most women with a skin tone similar to yours. If the treatment feels uncomfortable with these settings you can always lower them manually. 

How do I use the SmartSkin sensor?

• Press the SmartSkin sensor (the magnifying glass icon) and put your Philips Lumea prestige on your skin. The sensor will scan your skin and the suggested light intensity that you could use will blink white. This indicates the highest setting that might still feels comfortable and does not give side effect.

• Press the confirmation button (V) to confirm that you want to use the suggested setting advice.

Note: We advise you to use the SmartSkin sensor on different areas of your body. This is because skin color and sensitivity may vary in different body areas. We advise choosing the setting that you feel comfortable with per body area.

Yes, you can also set the light intensity manually. To do so you can consult the skin tone/hair color table in the user manual, which will advise you on the recommended intensity settings.
