Laser Hair Removal with IPL and LHE

Radiancy LHE and Ellman IPL

Radiancy LHE - uses a pulsating beam of light and heat to remove unwanted hair and inhibit future growth. It is especially effective for people who have light skin and dark hair. Light targets melanin in the hair shaft, and then converts light to heat inside the follicle. The additional heat further elevates the temperature to reach coagulation temperature at a much lower fluence than conventional IPL devices. Future hair growth is inhibited and often prevented.

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.

Ellman IPL - my newest addition at Lisa G's Skincare! This machine is similar to LHE in that it is an IPl device using the full spectrum of light. Although your skin will feel some heat it does not utilize the heat to destroy the hair follicle. Eye wear is required. You will feel less discomfort as it is equipped with a cooling system to defer the heated feeling on the skin. The Ellman is a more powerful and versatile system. Some of the other treatments are photofacials, active acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea and redness.

During your consultation we will determine which systems is best suited to your individual needs.

I will do everything I can to give you the best results possible as I treat your unwanted hair.  On the average it takes 6 to 12 treatments to clear an area.  Some people will experience a faster clearing based on hair color, area, genetics and hormonal status.  Others may be harder to clear for all of the same reasons.   

 

FAQ

what is the difference between laser, IPL and LHE?

Laser is one wavelength with a very small spot size, about the size of a dime. IPL and LHE use a wide area of wavelengths, which when released comes out of a large spot size (about 2in wide by 1in high) spreading out the energy. Laser requires a cooling system to cut off the heat. LHE uses lower power than laser & IPL while utilizing the heat that is generated. The way of delivering the heat and light is different, yet equal the energy of laser and IPL.

what is the advantage of LHE?

Less expensive than laser or IPL, LHE raises the temp of the hair follicle enough to damage the root and thus works on fine dark hair. Laser does not treat fine hair with pigment. LHE works well on darker skin types unlike other IPL and laser technology. Unlike laser, LHE ia approved as an FDA eye safe device. Eye protection is not required during the procedure.

how often, or how long will I have to do LHE?

Typically body areas will be treated 8-10 weeks apart for 6-12 treatments with maintenance a few times a year. Facial hair may need more frequent treatment depending on the method you have been using prior.

does LHE hurt?

For some people, the treatment may be slightly uncomfortable. Some areas are more sensitive than others. This can be minimized with pure aloe gel, or topical numbing cream that can be prescribed by your physician. The treatment is quick and the feeling of discomfort is brief.

Testimonials

  • I love her set up that she has going on. She's always so nice and things are not overpriced like other places. I go there for laser hair removal. I had it done at another business and it didn't really do anything. Lisa's machine must be newer or something, because it is working much more efficiently than the other place I went to. I live pretty far away from her office, I drive all the way past other places just to utilize her skills. -Troy C.
  • Lisa provides an excellent facial experience. She took the time to choose products for my finicky skin. The room is quiet & relaxing and the bed is warm & comfortable. Lisa is the best! -Priscilla D.
  • Just spent a very relaxing hour-plus having a facial at Lisa G's Skincare located upstairs at Colour on Burnside. 35+ years of spa experiences from San Francisco to Paris and I can honestly say you can't do any better, or meet a nicer person. She is the BEST! -Diane C.
  • Wonderful, relaxing facial with Lisa! I would highly recommend to anyone. -Rob D.
  • When I had my facial with Lisa I not only looked great when I was done I felt so relaxed. Her facial massages are amazing. I am getting the facial peel next because I have seen the after effect of others who have experienced Lisa's peels and they look wonderful. - Roxanne
  • Lisa works with a high degree of professionalism and friendliness. She stays current on latest trends for her industry and is always warm and welcoming in her appointments. She customized a treatment that was specific for my skin, she was very engaging in her conversation and she followed up with me after the visit to see how I was doing. As someone who doesn’t necessarily stay up to date on her industry I appreciate how elementary she explained what she was doing and why during the treatments. I will continue to see her anytime I need to feel completely relaxed! -David P.
  • Lisa is a natural at skincare. She has taught me so much about how to take care of my skin to fight aging and sun damage. She has given me facials and chemical peels. Lisa definitely has a magic touch! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to look and feel years younger and wants a little pampering! -Lorelei M.
  • Lisa is the best esthetician that I have ever had. I had never had a peel-- only facials and I was a little nervous. Lisa made me feel relaxed, at ease and safe. She goes above and beyond for her clients. She has a sharp mind and knows exactly what your skin needs! The difference in my skin as when I first went to Lisa is noticeable. I get compliments frequently. And I love the PCASkin products she uses. I can't wait to go back. If you are thinking of going--go. You will have a wonderful relaxing experience in a cozy comfortable salon. -Maureen M.
  • Lisa's attention to detail is unparalleled! She bases your experience on the results YOU desire. Give her a try, you'll be hooked! -Diane F.
  • Lisa is wonderful! she is very knowledgeable, listens to your concerns about your skin, and gives great skin advice. I have had amazing results with her peels and microdermabrasion. -Leah G
  • Big shout-out to Lisa Gruis for doing an outstanding job on my makeup for the New Year's Eve gig at the Waterfront Marriott! I've always shied away from having someone do makeup because i am a "slatherer", trying to cover up the "old" in me and it's hard to communicate the look I'm going for...Lisa has a sixth sense with her clients and is very gentle...she doesn't judge, she's gentle and she brings out a beauty with her colors and depths that you don't even realize you have! Really looking forward to getting a whole skin care regimen going with her and a whole lot of makeup tips! THANK YOU LISA!!! - Debbie Earnhart
  • Lisa is awesome! I was looking for someone to perform a peel for a special event that was coming up and I'm so glad I found her! She was really kind and patient with me, the peel was very relaxing and my skin is soooo much softer, I will be coming back soon. Thanks Lisa! - Beiky R
  • Wonderful, relaxing facial with Lisa! I would highly recommend to anyone. If you're anything like me, you spent the better part of an evening researching various chemical peel types, and scoured the internet for pictures of people who have done them. Having never done a peel before, I was VERY nervous that I was going to have to hide from my friends and blame my skin peeling on a freak sunburn I somehow managed to get with our Portland sun. When I went to see Lisa G, I let her know this and she recommended the Sensi peel, as it has very little down time (if any) and would be a good way for her to gauge what my skin can handle. She explained everything so well and really made me feel very comfortable with the whole experience. The peel itself was really easy, it was I think 3 applications with little breaks in between to let the 'Spicy' calm down. She can fan your face, but I didn't need it as it really just tingled. She then put a bunch of serums and moisturizer things on and I was good to go!
  • I was worried that I would have to cancel my dinner plans (I had a 5:30 appt and dinner reservations at 7). But after I got home, my face looked just brighter and maybe a little red, but certainly no reason to hide out. Anyways, over the next few days I didn't have any peeling, but my skin was somewhat flaky. The results are amazing! The texture of my skin is so much softer, and it just absorbs my lotion more easily. The overall tone is much more even, and while some old scars are still there from picking, they are lighter. I just feel more comfortable in skin! The best part? My boyfriend told me I was *glowing* the week after. Score!
  • Oh the other great thing is that Lisa emailed me just to check in and see how I was doing after the peel. How nice is that?! I think I'll get another one done that's stronger, based on the results of this one. If you're on the edge about getting it done, I would highly recommend the Sensi peel. I never once felt like I needed to change my plans, and every day I woke up in the morning excited to see how my skin was changing for the better. Do it!! - Carmen G
  • Lisa is a great! I went in for a back waxing and I was still relaxed when I left. If you are a guy I want a low key comfortable place Lisa is the one to see. Ladies I hear her facials are amazing! The room has a great atmosphere for both men and women. Lisa is relaxed but professional and knows what she is doing. I would recommend her highly to both men and women! The only complaint is my appointment wasn't longer! It was a great experience! - Stephen
  • Lisa gave me my 1st chemical peel. She is very sweet & explained thoroughly what she was doing step by step during the peel process. Her prices are great, the location is easy to find & she is extremely knowledgeable about skincare! I have another peel appointment soon with her & I can hardly wait! - Erin B
