Before you go to Syneron for info, make sure that you check this other post string right here on this site. Aurora = ELOS (Electro-Optical Synergy) which is an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)device.
You might also like to know that our new member Blaze is playing her own game of semantics here. The FDA gave clearance to market, not a blessing to call this process PERMANENT Hair Removal. Notice that Blaze never said permanent in her post although the word choice would lead some to jump to that conclusion.
But don’t believe me, here is what Syneron has to say about this from one of their press releases:
“July 16, 2002) – Syneron Medical Ltd. and its North American subsidiary Syneron Inc., today announced that Syneron has received US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) clearance to market the Aurora DS™ system for non-invasive hair removal…The combination of both radio-frequency and optical energy in the Syneron system, known as ELOS technology, is an innovative and exciting development in the treatment of hair removal,” commented Dr. Jerome Garden. “With this approach, one may achieve hair reduction while minimizing the applied light energy and its associated undesired side effects. There is the potential to more safely treat a broader range of hair and skin colors. This technology should also have application for other skin processes that have previously benefited from laser and pulsed light systems.”
So even THE COMPANY THAT MAKES THIS SYSTEM says that what you will be getting is short term hair removal with long term reduction as their promised result.
