Syneron lands FDA nod for "me" home-use hair removal system
Israel device maker Syneron Medical gets an FDA nod for its "me" system, the 1st home-use hair removal product cleared for all skin tones.
The "me" system, featuring Syneron's proprietary elos energy technology, is the 1st and only FDA-cleared consumer hair removal technology indicated for all skin tones, according to the company.
"Gaining FDA clearance for the' me' home-use hair removal system is a significant milestone for Syneron," CEO Louis Scafuri said in prepared remarks. "It represents the 1st home-use application of Syneron's proprietary elos technology in the U.S., where it is already broadly used in Syneron's professional aesthetic products by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and other professional providers."
