What will professional hair removal cost you?
in the comfort of your home
LUMI+ incorporates the latest generation of IPL technology, which has been tested according to the highest safety standards and has been proven as a reliable technology for hair reduction by dermatologists and medical scientists. Many aesthetic clinics use similar methods for hair removal but LUMI+ offers a more convenient solution that is suitable for home use.
IPL works with a bright flash of light that is attracted and absorbed by the natural dark pigment of hair, called melanin. The pigment absorbs the light pulses emitted by LUMI+ and turns that energy into heat. This heat then acts as a conductor that directs the energy towards the root of the hair and prevents it from growing back. This process gradually disables the hair follicle leaving you with smoother skin overtime.

Hair growth cycle
Every hair goes through three distinct phases that are part of the hair growth cycle and which play a role in determining hair reduction. Anagen is the phase in which the hair grows, whereas Catagen and Telogen are resting phases. A full hair growth cycle can take 18-24 months and the length of the growth cycle depends on the location of the hair and varies with each individual. For optimal long-term results with IPL technology, multiple treatment sessions are necessary in order to target all the hairs in a given area.
In this phase, the hair is growing. At this point in the growth cycle, the hair is attached to the root and is considered to be ‘alive’. This phase in the hair growth cycle lasts anywhere from 4 months to 8 years.
Intense Pulsed Light only works on hair that is in the Anagen phase.
This secondary phase is commonly referred to as the transitional phase in which the hair stops growing and the body prepares to eject it. In this phase, hair is considered dead, as cellular multiplication stops, and all growth ceases. The Catagen phase usually lasts for 2 to 4 weeks.
Telogen is the final stage of the hair growth cycle, commonly referred to as the resting phase. The body will discard dead hair in order to make room for the growth of new hair. As the old hair is naturally shed from the body, new hair starts to form and the cycle begins again with the hair follicle returning to the Anagen phase. This phase may last for 2 to 9 months.
The following information outlines what you should expect when using LUMI+ for the first time. Even if you have previously used an IPL device, we suggest you read the following guidelines.
Before using LUMI+
LUMI+ is convenient and easy to use. You first need to ensure that your skin and hair type is compatible with our device by consulting our Skin Tone Chart to determine if LUMI+ is right for you. In addition, it is important to read the entire User Manual before beginning your LUMI+ treatment.
Beautiful skin starts with healthy skin. EvoDerma highly suggests that you avoid sun exposure and adequately protect your skin from the sun (using SPF 50 or higher) at least 4 weeks before and after any treatment.
Shave, clean and dry the area(s) to be treated. Be sure to remove all makeup, creams, deodorants, perfumes and any other products from your skin before beginning.
The following areas are treated effectively with LUMI+:
- underarms and arms
- bikini line
- legs and feet
- back and shoulders
Please note, LUMI+ should not be used on the head, face or anywhere above the neckline.
Personalize your LUMI+ treatment by selecting the intensity level (between 1-5) that you feel comfortable with by briefly pressing the On/Off button. It is recommended to start with the lowest level and gradually increase as treatment progresses. Next, apply the treatment window evenly against your skin and press the pulse button to begin. Repeat this step with slightly overlapping pulses until the desired area(s) has been treated.
After a LUMI+ treatment session, you will see hair fall out for a period of up to two weeks. This is the body's normal response as it discharges dead hair. For optimal results, hydrate with a moisturizing lotion after using LUMI+, and then start to enjoy your smooth skin!
Plan your treatments to achieve the best results
During the length of a full growth cycle, multiple LUMI+ treatment sessions may be required for long-term hair reduction. IPL hair removal results differ from one person to another and your individual physical make-up will impact the number of treatments required for you to attain optimal results.
Example of a treatment plan over the course of a full growth cycle:
This is the plan we recommend since it is the one that has been proven to provide the best results. You may schedule your use of EvoDerma LUMI+ differently and it could also lead to satisfactory results.
NOTE: Do not use LUMI+ on the same part of your body more often than it is recommended (twice a week); it will not lead to faster or better results.
