Demand for OTC Laser and Light Devices Continue to Grow

Demand for OTC Laser, light devices continue to grow.  The Dermatology Times in its August 2011 edition noted the following:
•    PaloVia, released earlier this year, is an at-home device for reducing periorbital wrinkles
•    Silk'n hair removal system has FDA clearance for at-home permanent hair reduction
•    Several low-level lasers are cleared for OTC use in the United States
Producing home devices introduces a challenging balance between efficacy and safety. Safety issues include those for the treatment area, as well as for the eyes. Some device fluences even have been changed post-introduction due to concerns over the retinal hazards.
