Light Heat Energy (LHE): What Is It and How Can It Benefit Me?

We invest a lot of money into eliminating unwanted hair. Whether it is by shaving, waxing, or threading- beauty standards make it essential that we control where hair grows through regular maintenance.

The problem with this need is not just the money invested but the time that we spend regularly to keep up the desired look.

In fact, according to Look Young Atlanta, on average we can spend over 100,000 minutes shaving in a lifetime! Also, hair removal must be done frequently, often interrupting schedules and becoming a nuisance.

Laser Hair Removal!

With hair removal being such a time-consuming investment, it is no wonder that people have been seeking permanent hair removal solutions. Laser Hair Removal is a viable method, but the burns and recovery time that are associated with them can interrupt daily life.

There is also the ongoing quest to keep a clear, glowing complexion. Though high-quality skin care products do a great deal to keep our skin clear and hydrated, the natural aging process and sun damage create sun spots and wrinkles over time.

The good news is that there is now an alternative to laser hair removal called Light Heat Energy (LHE), which can provide long-term hair removal results and skin rejuvenation.

LHE is also more affordable and gentler on the skin compared to Laser Hair Removal. There are no burning or scarring involved that are usually associated with other laser treatments. Also, since there is no recovery time, you are back to your normal life right after the procedure.

In this blog post, we’ll take a deep look at what LHE is and more on how it can benefit you.

What is LHE?

LHE is a hair removal and skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a combination of light and thermal energy to halt hair growth and stimulate collagen production. LHE involves transfers light and thermal energy to your hair follicles through convection to produce the desired results.

It is one of the safest hair removal treatments that is less intense than other long-term solutions.

With LHE, the light is less intense compared to other treatments, making the patient comfortable and able to walk out after a treatment session without any need for recovery. LHE emits thermal energy that targets your hair follicles, not the skin, meaning that your skin isn't burned in the process while hair is being removed. It works great for all skin pigments and hair types.

LHE sends pulses of light and heat energy into your hair follicles. The colored pigment in your hair absorbs this energy which in turn disables the cells that make up your hair's pigmentation.

This process ultimately removes the hairs that are targeted. Each treatment session can be as quick as 10 minutes per session but can last as long as 40 minutes, depending on the patient's needs and the size of the area that requires treatment.

How does LHE benefit my look?

LHE will create a more youthful look to your skin by stimulating collagen production in a process called skin rejuvenation. It will also stop unwanted hair from growing, freeing up your schedule to worry about more important things.

Many people suffer from excess facial hair like sideburns or upper lip hair that must constantly be waxed or threaded, but LHE can be a viable long-term solution to the tediousness of regular upkeep.

LHE For Hair Removal

LHE uses low-level light and heat in carefully controlled bursts. The treatment is usually complete after several sessions- resulting in smooth, beautiful skin that doesn't require constant shaving, waxing, or threading. It is perfect for big jobs like legs and arms or also great for smaller, more tedious areas like recurring facial hair.

Imagine not having to remember to buy razors or make that bi-weekly trip to the salon for a facial wax treatment. With LHE, or Light heat energy, you can get lasting results that are gentle on your skin, unlike other hair removal treatments.

LHE Hair Removal Side Effects

LHE is extremely safe and side effects are very rare. Some experience blistering, crusting and scarring of the skin texture. However, these are in extremely rare circumstances.

LHE For Skin Rejuvenation

In spa treatments, skin rejuvenation is the process of improving the overall appearance of your skin by targeting several imperfections. The goal is to tone, tighten, and plump up your skin to make it more youthful.

It takes several visits for the results to become visible, but this non-invasive treatment is the gentlest on your skin.

Common Skin Issues that LHE Can Treat

LHE is perfect for addressing these common skin issues:

  • Dark spots
  • Vascular lesions
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Collagen deficit

Through the thermal and light energy, LHE beautifies your skin by stimulating collagen growth. New collagen on your dermal layer replenishes your skin, making it tighter and more youthful looking.

This process also targets the pigment melanin which helps the skin become more even in tone, fighting sun spots, moles, freckles, and vascular lesions that come with aging and sun damage.

LHE is a gentle alternative to improve your look.

Daily life can be stressful and damage to our skin can come from many sources like the sun, environment, or the fast-paced nature of life. LHE can be a quick, convenient, and noninvasive way to rejuvenate your appearance while also giving you more time by not having to get repetitive waxing or shaving done.
