Hello Andrea (or anyone else with info on this),
On another site I came across this study and found the following excerpt:
[b]Pulsed, noncoherent broadband light sources
An intense pulsed, nonlaser light source, eg, EpiLight (formerly ESC, now Lumenis; Santa Clara, Calif), emitting noncoherent, multiwavelength light has recently been approved by the FDA for the claim of permanent hair removal. By placing appropriate filters on the light source, wavelengths ranging from 590-1200 nm can be generated. Cut-off filters are used to eliminate short wavelengths so that only the longer, more deeply penetrating wavelengths are emitted. The cut-off filters provided are 590, 615, 640, and 690 nm. Pulse durations vary from 2.5-7 milliseconds. A single- or multiple-pulse mode (2-5) with various pulse-delay intervals can be chosen. The fluence range is 30-65 J/cm2, and the quartz light guide has spot sizes of 8 X 35 mm or 10 X 45 mm. [/b]

If anyone has heard of this or has info on it I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
