No flexibility to edit dates makes it hard to follow treatment plan
Lumea is great, but the app itself is soo frustrating to use. Even though you can now “backdate” the most recent treatment, you still can’t edit any previous entries, even if they are wrong! This means that all future dates get moved and I’m less likely to stick to my schedule, since the day I’m now supposed to touch up is not convenient i.e. not on the weekend when I have time. And it baffles me why changing the treatment window can only be applied after you finish the NEXT treatment? This is very unhelpful as sometimes I can see hairs already growing back and want to shorten the window, or conversely that hairs are slower to regrow and therefore can go longer between touch ups.
In all, the lack of flexibility editing dates in the app mean that it’s not useful for sustaining a effective treatment plan. It’s a shame as I really liked having all my dates/reminders in one place and found filtering by body part helpful too. But if you need a plan you can manually adjust then you’re better off using calendar reminders. Hopefully Philips can address these issues in future.
I’ve had a Lumea for over 5 years but only recently started using the app when my old device became faulty and was replaced by Philips.
The reminders and having a treatment schedule prepared are very useful features, but that’s where it ends. Running through the tutorial each treatment is tiresome.
My main complaint is that you can’t manually adjust when you’ve recorded a treatment. Realistically I’m never going to have the app open and record as I go, and I’m likely to record the treatment a day or two later when I remember. Because you can only record a treatment on the current date, if you forget and go back in a day later, the app will record the treatment as being carried out a day late and push back the treatment schedule a day. So now even though I know my next treatment is in 13 days, the app won’t let me record another for 14 days. I either have to keep remembering it’s a day off, or change my treatment day (which isn’t convenient, I chose a day of the week when I’d have time for treatments).
So it looks like I’m back to setting up my own calendar reminder like I used to before the app in the end.
I’d like to see two new features -
- a “when did you do your treatment” option. Even if this was set to go back a day or two it would be useful.
- the ability to turn off the tutorial when recording a treatment and basically just record when you did it, what setting was used and how it felt.

Due to popular request, we’ve added a long-awaited new feature. Now you can report completed treatments retrospectively. So, if you forget to mark it done on the day of treatment you can also do it later. Don’t miss out! Download the latest version now.
The Ipl machine itself is great. This app needs work. I know there was an update to let you put retrospectively that you did a treatment but either I’m mistaken and this feature is too difficult to find, or it only comes up as an option if it’s the first treatment you’ve done. I did my third treatment last week and forgot to put in the app that I’d done it at the time, and now I can’t put it in on the correct date.
Also the app needs to have a feature to delete treatments - I’ve accidentally put that I’ve done treatments on certain days just to test out how to use the app and then couldn’t delete them afterwards.
Finally, the app needs to ask you ‘what setting did you use’ and ‘how did it feel’ after every treatment, and then at the next treatment it should repeat this info to you again!! I can’t remember what setting I use for every part of my body. I’m just using my calendar instead of this app at the moment tbh because it’s way less hassle and more accurate than using this app.

Hello there, thanks for your message and for sharing the valuable feedback. We’ve forwarded this to our developers to make sure they are aware. Additional, it’s now also possible to add treatments retrospectively when you the “I’ve done my treatment” button. If there is anything else, feel free send us a message on Facebook or Twitter@philipscare
