Home Skinnovations hair removal

Executive Summary

Israeli firm's Silk'n Home Pulsed Light hair-removal technology will be available over-the-counter this spring, according to a recent release. Dispensed through physicians to date, Silk'n "emits a pulse of light energy to the hair shaft to disable growth on the legs, underarms and bikini area without damaging the surrounding tissue," Home Skinnovations explains. In clinical testing, the device achieved results comparable to in-office, professional treatments, according to the company. A doctor visit used to be necessary to ensure the device was not used by individuals with incompatible skin tones; the next-generation device features a built-in sensor that detects and assesses skin tone before it will activate. Silk'n with SensEpil will retail for $399. CLRS Technology's prescription Claro device uses intense pulsed light to treat acne. TRIA Beauty offers home hair removal in the form of its TRIA Laser Hair Removal System (1"The Rose Sheet" Feb. 9, 2009, p. 6)
