Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Low-energy intense pulsed light for hair removal at home was evaluated in this clinical trial. Twenty-two female patients were enrolled into an institutional review board-approved clinical trial. Patients received six biweekly treatments with the device, and clinical results with hair counts and pictures were performed at four weeks and three months following the last treatment. Ninety-five percent of the patients noted hair count reduction at the end of this clinical trial. Overall hair reduction was 78 percent at the one-month follow up and 72 percent at the three-month follow up. No serious adverse events were noted. This clinical trial confirmed the safety and efficacy of this device for hair removal at home.
