What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses warm gentle light to break the cycle of hair regrowth and put the hair to sleep. Gentle, pain-free pulses of light are applied at the root and, after several treatments, hair is prevented from growing back for up to 6 months, leaving you feeling more confident.*

IPL - Hair Reduction

*Median hair reductions after 12 treatments: 78% on legs, 64% on bikini, 65% on armpits.

FAQs

What's the difference between laser and IPL?

Laser hair removal uses a monochromatic laser light, whereas IPL uses a broad spectrum of light. Professional laser treatment is high-energy and focuses on selected areas. Many names are given to laser hair removal, but IPL is not laser.

Is there a permanent hair removal method?

Even with laser treatment permanent hair removal cannot always be achieved. However, there are methods that can deliver long lasting results, like salon laser or at home IPL. Lumea can be used at home safely and achieves 95% hair reduction*

Does Lumea IPL hurt?

In extensive research, no women described it as painful, providing the correct skin tone and hair colour setting were used. In the tests, some women described a ‘warm sensation’ or ‘prickling’ which in most cases disappeared within a few minutes.

Is Lumea safe to use?

Philips Lumea was developed with leading dermatologists and tested with over 2000 women. Lumea IPL is derived from the technology used in professional salons but adapted to fulfil all the safety regulations for home-use appliances.

What is Buy Now Pay Later?
Buy Now Pay Later is an interest bearing option that allows you to delay payments on your purchases for up to 12 months. The delayed payment period starts from the date of order (including pre-ordered items and those not ready for immediate dispatch).

You can choose:
A delayed payment period of 12 months and then a repayment period of 104 weeks when you spend £50 or more.
A delayed payment period of 12 months and then a repayment period of 156 weeks when you spend £99 or more.

How interest is calculated?
Interest will be charged for the delayed payment period and the chosen repayment period.

Interest is calculated and compounded daily at a typical rate of 44.9% per annum for the delayed payment period and repayment period and is charged to your account at date of order as a lump sum. This calculation factors in the planned payments that are requested during the repayment period. Your interest rate is personal to you and will be detailed in checkout.

How to avoid paying interest?
You can avoid paying all interest for both periods by paying the cash price before the end of the delayed payment period. This can be done in one full payment or multiple partial payments.

Making partial payments may result in a portion of the lump sum of compound interest being refunded at the end of the delayed payment period.

Remember if you choose not to pay the full cash price before the end of the delayed payment period any outstanding balance plus the lump sum of compound interest applied at the date of order will become payable.

How do I make a Buy Now Pay Later payment?
To make a full or partial payment simply log into My Account, choose "Make a payment", select "Pay Buy Now Pay Later" and allocate your payment to the specific item(s) you wish to pay off. Alternatively, you can call us.

What happens after the delayed payment period?
If you have not made any payments towards your Buy Now Pay Later, the outstanding balance plus the lump sum of compound interest will be payable across your chosen repayment period. This will now be included in your account minimum payment request each month.

If you have made partial payments, but not cleared the full cash price before the end of the delayed payment period, the outstanding balance plus a reduced lump sum of compound interest will become payable. The repayment amount agreed for the repayment period will remain the same, meaning the repayment period may be shorter than originally agreed.
If you have paid the cash price in full before the end of the delayed payment period, you will not pay any interest.

What is excluded from Buy Now Pay Later?
The costs for delivery, installation services and any warranty and insurance products cannot be placed on Buy Now Pay Later. Buy Now Pay Later availability is subject to your credit and account status.

Do I still have to pay my minimum payment?
Yes, allocating payments to Buy Now Pay Later will not cover the minimum payment for your Littlewoods account. If you have a non-Buy Now Pay Later balance on your Littlewoods account, you will still need to make at least your minimum payment as shown on your statement.
