Braun is more choosing to have and specialise with just one or two. With many similarities in pricing and features, how are you supposed to pick up the right one between Philips Lumea vs Gillete Venus IPL? Just leave it to us in here below.
Philips Lumea uses an innovative light-based technology called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which comes from the technology used in Beauty Salon professionals. Philips has adapted this technology for safe and effective use in the comfort of your own home. Philips works closely with skin care specialists to develop this technology, conducting extensive IPL technology consumer research with over 2000 women. Philips Lumea has five adjustable light energy settings to ensure soft but effective treatment.

Gillete Venus IPL
The Braun Silk IPL expert is a home-Use device that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to slow down and prevent hair growth. It keeps you hair free by continuing to fill up the treatments. Use on the body and face under the cheekbone (female). Design wise, building specifications and performance features set it apart as a stand-out option at mid-range affordable prices. It is highly rated by online reviewers, fast even at higher intensity levels and has advanced skin tone sensors. I think it’s especially suitable for large areas and full body treatments. Braun IPL is available initially with 120,000 flashes. Models sold today have an increased 300,000 flashes. Combined with 3 cm² of window maintenance you get a maximum treatment area of 900,000. That’s enough for about 200+ full body treatments (full feet, bikini line, armpits and face). After the initial 12-week phase, this will last more than 15 years monthly pulsanya treatment.

Top of the range Lumea systems are actually expensive, but they also last for several years, even forever. Braun’s Silk-Expert is mid-range in offered-cost but you can purchase cheaper Lumea’s if you do or really need all the attachments. For this decades long IPL investment, we recommend the Lumea systems. The reason just because they have so much flexibility in attachments, great lifespans and are just all-round easy to use. We especially like the choice between corded and cordless.
