January 07, 2015 - Remington’s i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz Offers Sufferers of PCOS an FDA-cleared and Clinically Proven Innovation for Fast, Gentle, and Easy-to-Use Permanent Hair Removal at Home

Boston, MA (January 7, 2015) – As many as 10% of women of childbearing age are affected by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).* Also referred to as “The Silent Killer,” PCOS is one of the most common hormonal endocrine disorders in women.  Symptoms can include: weight gain or obesity, cysts on ovaries, insulin resistance and higher testosterone levels leading to Hirsutism (excessive body hair growth).

Women suffering with Hirsutism often share feelings of humiliation, rejection, and depression on PCOS support sites.  They connect to address loss of self-confidence and to discover solutions for eliminating embarrassing body hair. Thanks to Remington’s breakthrough i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz, women everywhere have a real solution for eliminating unwanted body hair and improving self-confidence with this fast, gentle and easy-to-use technology.  The i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz provides permanent results, comparable to professional hair removal treatments, but in the comfort of home.

Living with Hirsutism can mean growing an excessive amount of stiff and pigmented hair on a woman’s body in areas where men typically grow hair, including the face, chest and back.  This hair growth occurrence can even be seen in girls as young as eleven years old. In the past, those affected by PCOS would need to undergo expensive professional and sometimes painful hair removal treatments.  On average, a person undergoing professional laser hair removal will require three to five costly and inconvenient visits to a medical spa, spending between $1500.00 and $3000.00. The i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz retails for just $399.99 and uses the same technology as dermatologists, is FDA-cleared for the body and is proven by clinical trials. In clinical testing, on average, participants had 66% fewer hairs 12 months after just three treatments similar to results observed from professional hair removal devices. It incorporates similar IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology found in professional medical spas and salons and used by dermatologists.

The i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz is one of the most effective IPL hair removal devices on the market today and is changing the way millions of people around the world quickly, safely, and cost effectively eliminate undesirable body hair. It is a breakthrough Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology developed with Jeffrey S. Dover, MD, FRCPC, one of the nation's leading dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons.  Dr. Dover is past president of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, president-elect of the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery and past president of the New England Dermatological Society.

"The reality of having to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to undergo time-consuming, often uncomfortable and embarrassing treatments in a spa or medical office can be a big turnoff," according to Eduard Roosli, General Manager of Shaser Bioscience (Shaser Bioscience is co-developer of i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz).  "People everywhere will want to have this valuable innovation all to themselves to remove unwanted hair like the professionals do, but in the privacy of their own homes."  

The i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz is FDA-cleared for the body. It is an over-the-counter IPL device intended for women and men and is equipped with a built-in skin tone sensor designed to help prevent flashing on skin tones that are too dark for treatment. This technology works best on darker, thicker hair and lighter skin tones. Darker skin may absorb too much light energy, making it unsuitable for use with the i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz.
