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.

Light & Heat Working in Harmony
“I saw that the light delivery and permanence of [LHE] were equivalent to the laser systems I had investigated. In fact, the results were essentially identical. [LHE] did what the rep said it could do – it provided significant long-term hair reduction.”

Amiya Prasad, MF, Cosmetic
Surgeon - New York

“For our market, traditional laser hair removal is prohibitively expensive for most patients. At the same time, there is no system that doesn’t require multiple treatments or is guaranteed to work on all people. [LHE] has been great for us. It really allows us to offer hair reduction treatments at a reasonable price.”

Benjamin Van Raalte, M.D., Plastic Surgeon

"There’s so much awareness out there right now about hair removal that it isn’t really difficult to incorporate [LHE] in the office. Your patients already know you and want to come to you for [hair removal].

”Alan Mantell, M.D., Dermatologist California.

LHE targets melanin in the hair shaft, and then converts light to heat inside the follicle. The additional heat further elevates the temperature to reach coagulation temperature at a much lower fluence than 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.

How LHE for Hair Removal Works
Flashes of broad spectrum light and heat are applied to the target area. Light is drawn to the melanin in the hair, raising the temperature of the hair follicle. Heat energy from the lamp is conducted down the hair shaft, increasing the hair follicle temperature.
The combined energies of light and heat result in the destruction of the hair follicle. LHE, long-term hair removal for hair-free skin.
