A New Era
Pills, Creams and soaps. The shelves are stocked with treatments and solutions that promise
clear, healthy skin. But for most acne suffers most of these promises are unfulfilled. Fortunately,
new developments in science and technology, especially in the area of photothermolysis have enabled
us to take a whole new look at acne, its causes and treatments.
What is Acne?
Acne begins when a build-up of oil occurs in the hair follicle, creating a plug that traps oil and
dead cells under the surface of the skin. This condition is often at its...
The clogged follicle becomes a fertile breeding ground for unwanted bacteria. This bacterium, named
P.acnes is the main cause of Acne. The P.acnes bacteria are anaerobic; this means that they thrive in
an environment where there is a lack of oxygen.
New research has shown that by targeting the pore with light at a certain frequency, it creates an
oxygen rich environment that destroys the P.acnes. Understanding the relationship between Light and
P.acnes, has led to the development of LHE Acne Phototherapy - a breakthrough treatment for acne
Using a unique three-pronged approach of green light, red light and heat, LHE optimises the oxygen
effect and quickly destroys the P.acnes. Green and red light reach deep into the pore, while the heat
intensifies the process and gently opens the pores to release the clog and soothe the inflammation.
Red Light - Stops Inflammation
Red light quickly reduces the inflammation from the base of the hair follicle.
Green Light - Goes Deep
Green light penetrates deep beneath the skin's surface to initiate the anti-bacterial reaction at
LHE's Secret of Heat
Heat speeds up the chemical process and soothes the acne lesions.
