Permanent Hair Removal with the LHE Light Based System


Imagine never having to worry about hair removal again. Imagine never having to buy another razor. Imagine what you can do with the time you used to spend removing that hair.


After one treatment you'll see immediate results. What have you got to lose other than that annoying hair?

For many men and women, unwanted hair can be a nightmare.


Until now the only options for removing unwanted hair were smelly hair removal creams, sharp razors, stinging wax, or painful electrolysis needles.


Light & Heat Working in Harmony


The LHE Hair Removal System is an advanced approach to beautiful skin and provides the ultimate solution.







Now, men and women alike will be pleased with the results made possible by our Laser Hair Removal process.


LHE targets the melanin in the hair shaft, and then converts light to heat inside the follicle. The heat damages the bulge and the root, inhibiting and often preventing future hair growth.


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 or causing discomfort to the surrounding tissue.


Remember that removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker or quicker. In fact, the opposite is usually true. LHE treatments may cause the hair to come back slower and thinner.


Just about any area of the face or body can be treated. The most popular treatments are:

For Women


  • Upper Lip
  • Underarms
  • Bikini Area
  • Legs

For Men


  • Back and Chest
  • Nape of Neck
  • Sideburns
  • Hands

How long does it last?


The most common question asked about hair removal is: "Is it permanent?" The answer to that is "yes". But to fully answer the question, there must be an understanding of the hair growth cycle and its location on the body. Most clients require four to eight treatments to achieve nearly complete, permanent hair reduction. This patented technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long lasting results. LHE's wide beam allows treatment to the back, shoulders, underarms, legs, face and bikini areas quickly and effectively. Even sensitive areas such as the lip and the nipples can be safely treated.


How does LHE Light Based Hair Removal work?


The theory is simple. A flash of a specific band of light over the treatment area targets the melanin in the hair shaft and is converted to heat. The heat and light travel down the hair shaft and disable the hair follicle so that it is no longer able to produce hair. Once a hair follicle is disabled-it will never produce hair again!

Each treatment is relatively quick, depending on the size of the area to be treated. For example, the upper lip takes less than 2 minutes with the LHE System.


Do I need more than one treatment?


Yes. Whether you have treatments with lasers, intense pulsed light devices or the LHE System, more than one treatment will always be needed. This is because hair has a growth cycle with three phases, and it is only possible to disable hair growth during the active (anagen) growth phase. Different areas of the body have different growth cycles, so varying amounts of hair will be in the anagen phase at any one time. During your consultation, we will tell you when your return visit(s) should be I order to eliminate the greatest amount of hair in the next anagen phase. For this reason, most people need between 4-8 treatments for optimal hair removal results.


After one treatment you'll see immediate results. What have you got to lose other than that annoying hair? Does the LHE Hair Removal System work for blond or gray hairs? What about for darker skinned individuals who desire permanent hair removal?


It is true that the LHE Hair Removal System, like virtually every other hair removal system on the market, works best for darker hairs. Treatment of blond and gray hairs are admittedly more challenging. Therefore, for anyone who is considering this procedure, we advise treatment before the hairs turn gray. However, the great news is that recent advances in the LHE Hair Removal System technology now allows treatment of darker skinned individuals with outstanding results comparable to those formerly achieved only in lighter skin types.
