From a correspondent:

I received my Cosmetic Surgery Times and there’s a large ad for the above system by Symedex. I checked the FDA 510(k) Releasable site and couldn’t find the system. Received the following: No records were found with ProductCode: GEX DeviceName: SpectraClear. Checked it out every which way, including perusing the whole FDA site.
Then I went to their website: http://www.symedex.com/index.html and couldn’t find anything about hair removal. Strange! The ad says: “In a flash…remove hair forever!” Claims SpectraClear “uses the perfect combination of Light and Heat Energy to provide dramatic and permanent hair reduction. Largest spot size, Affordable, safe and reliable.” Also … “it treats all hair colors and no messy gels or expensive cooling”
Have you heard of this device? I know the docs are not restricted and can use uncleared devices but am curious.

They do the spa, tanning salon and chiropractor circuit.
