Acne begins when a buildup of oil occurs in the hair follicle. This forms a plug that traps oil and dead cells under the surface of the skin. P.acnes bacteria, the leading cause of acne, thrive in this oxygen free environment. Targeting the pore with light stimulates a chemical reaction and creates an oxygen rich environment that destroys the P.acnes.
Using a unique 3-prong approach of green light, red light and heat, LHE optimizes the oxygen effect and quickly destroys the P.acnes. Green and red light reach deep into the pore and the heat intensifies the process and gently opens the pores to release the clog and soothe the inflammation.
An acne treatment plan will be customized to your specific needs and may combine LHE treatments with home care and bi-weekly peels. LHE treatments require a minimum of 8 visits over 4 weeks .
