Approximately 80 percent of men and women aged 16 to 60 regularly remove face and body hair. However, concerns over cost and safety of light-based hair removal treatments have discouraged many potential customers. LHE light-based hair removal answers the needs and concerns of both practitioners and their clients. Its low energy levels create an ultra-safe treatment that requires minimal if any preparation or skin cooling. The number of monthly treatments depends on the targeted area, with most areas requiring 7-12 sessions for effective and lasting hair removal.
LHE targets the melanin in the hair shaft, and then converts light to heat inside the follicle. The additional heat further elevates the temperature within the bulge and the root. They reach coagulation temperature at a much lower fluence then with conventional IPL devices. Future hair growth is inhibited and often prevented. To bring down the energy levels and increase safety, LHE relies on the synergetic relationship between Light and Heat to create an efficient photo thermal technique. With its unique light and heat combination, LHE maximizes the heat effect on the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue.
