We use the clinically proven LHE method for skin rejuvenation. Safe, immediate and low impact we have been using LHE for hair removal for over a decade and are delighted to offer it for skin treatments.
What is LHE (combined Light and Heat energies)?
LHE works on the principle of selective photothermolysis, but utilizes both light and heat to achieve maximum efficiency.
What skin issues can LHE treat?
- Treat broken veins and capillaries
- Reduce redness caused by broken capillaries and Rosacea
- Eliminate spider veins
- Treat imperfections from sun damage and photo-ageing age spots
- Even out skin colour for a more youthful rejuvenated look
- Decrease fine lines and wrinkles
What LHE machine do you use?
We use the Kona LHE (combined Light and Heat energies) machine. Kona LHE is manufactured by Radiancy a world leader in medical, aesthetic and consumer skincare and is FDA approved. For medical and aesthetic skincare LHE machines are known for their ability to deliver high demand treatments for all skin types with unmatched efficacy and safety.
How does LHE work?
LHE treatments are performed using a handpiece that delivers a broad spectrum of light and heat onto the skin’s surface. This light and heat penetrates into the skin tissue to stimulate the cells beneath the skin’s surface, and triggers the body’s response to eliminates injured tissues and dead skin cells, and promotes collagen production. In addition to improving uneven skin colour, sun damage, facial redness (Rosacea), and pigmentation, the heat energy stimulates new collagen production beneath the skin surface, firming and rejuvenating the skin. After a series of LHE treatments skin will appear more luminous, brighter and smoother.
LHE treatments are typically administered in a series of 4-6 treatments performed at intervals of a minimum of 4 weeks. Spreading the treatment over this period provides a gradual improvement of the skin, and preserves the important “no downtime” feature of the program.
Is LHE the same as Laser?
LHE technology is based on the same principle as laser but emits a broad spectrum of light and heat to reach several layers of the skin simultaneously, improving the texture, quality, colour and health of your skin. It can treat multiple conditions simultaneously; including broken veins and capillaries, redness of the skin, age spots, and pigmentation.
In addition to improving uneven skin colour, sun damage, facial redness (Rosacea), and pigmentation, the heat energy stimulates new collagen production beneath the skin surface, firming and rejuvenating the skin. After a series of LHE treatments skin will appear more luminous, brighter and smoother.
Are there any side effects?
LHE can cause slight swelling and redness in the treatment area, especially in areas where the skin is very thin or especially fragile. However, any redness or soreness typically subsides within a few hours after the procedure.
The most common side effects are as follows:
Discomfort – a hot sensation may occasionally last for up to an hour after treatment. A cold compress or ice pack may be used if desired.
Blistering – there is always a slight possibility of developing a crust or blister, this is superficial and does not result in any scarring.
Change of pigment – hypo (lighter) or hyper (darker) pigmentation occurs when there has been exposure to sunlight before or after treatment. This must be avoided 3-4 weeks before and after treatment.
Excessive swelling – immediately after treatment the skin may swell temporarily and should subside within hours but can last up to 7 days.
Fragile skin – the skin at or near the treatment site may become fragile – avoid makeup and do not rub the area.
Bruising – a bruise may appear on the treated area and can last from 5-15 days.
