Laser Hair Removal/Photoepilation
One of the problems with hair is—it doesn’t always grow in places where you want it to grow. So what do you do about unwanted hair?
There are two general categories of treatments for unwanted hair:
- Temporary—Shaving, plucking, waxing, bleaching, and removal of hair with a chemical depilating agent.
- Long-term or permanent—Laser Hair removal
Both men and womenhave found benefit from laser hair removal. Women most commonly seek hair removal in facial areas, and on the legs or arms. Men have increasingly found laser hair removal beneficial for excessive hair on the chest, shoulders and back.
Lasers are well adaptedto treating large surface areas, making laser treatment an excellent and more permanent alternative to waxing and other conventional removal methods.

Light & Heat Working in Harmony
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.
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 Photoepilation Works
The principle of laser hair removal is photothermolysis—using laser energy to generate heat inside a hair follicle to destroy its ability to grow new hair. Two responses are believed to occur in the hair follicle after a laser treatment:(1) immediate inhibition in growth of hair that is in active growth phase, and (2) long-term inhibition of new hair growth.
