FDA Backs Palomar's Permanent Hair Reduction Laser System

Jun 2001
BURLINGTON, Mass., June 8 -- Palomar Medical Technologies Inc. has received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to sell and market the Palomar SLP1000 (super long-pulse) diode laser system for "permanent hair reduction" for all skin types. The FDA granted clearance for permanent hair reduction after the company submitted results of permanency from a number of clinical studies.
   The Palomar SLP1000 is a new generation diode laser system that uses technology by Palomar to remove unwanted hair from all skin types, including tanned skin. Until recently, treatment of dark skin (Asian, Latino, African American and other skin types) was marginally safe and/or ineffective. The Palomar SLP1000 previously received clearance for treating hair, vascular and pigmented lesions, facial, spider and leg veins and other dermatological conditions.
