Providing convenience and professional-level results, the i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz is Remington’s breakthrough technology for permanent and cost-effective hair removal

Boston, MA (December 1, 2014) – For millions of Americans, maintaining groomed body hair is a constant and costly battle. Consumers invest billions of dollars shaving and removing excess hair – especially on their arms, legs, back, underarms, stomach, and chest. Treatments can result in excruciating discomfort via plucking and waxing, skin irritation due to shaving or expensive, time-consuming spa treatments. To address unwanted body hair, and improve self-confidence at a cost-effective price, Remington® has revolutionized permanent hair reduction with a fast, gentle and easy-to-use at home innovation called the i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz.

Substantially more comfortable and convenient than even professional laser hair removal, and dramatically less expensive than multiple in-office spa treatments, the i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz is FDA-cleared for the body as a handheld device for men and women incorporating the same IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology found in professional medical spas and salons and used by dermatologists. ProPulse® targets hair where it starts – at the root – and breaks the cycle of growth by heating the hair follicle. Treated hairs begin to fall out within one to two weeks, leaving no hair behind. The i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz is twice as powerful as other home-use IPL systems.

“Most women and men alike have hair they’d love to lose for good,” says brand spokesperson Jodi Darren. “But the reality of having to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to undergo time-consuming, often uncomfortable and even embarrassing treatments in a spa or medical office can be a big turnoff! People everywhere will want to know about the i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz and have this valuable innovation all to themselves to remove that hair like the professionals do, but in the privacy of their own homes.”
 
While professional laser hair removal at a medical spa typically ranges from $1,500 to $3,000 over three to five visits, the i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz retails for just $399.99 and uses the same technology as dermatologists.

The i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz is equipped with a built-in skin tone sensor designed to prevent flashing on skin tones that may be too dark for treatment.

It’s the invention of Jeffrey S. Dover, MD, FRCPC, one of the nation’s leading dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons, and proven by clinical trials. 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. During clinical testing, on average participants saw a 66 percent reduction in hairs 12 months after just three treatments, which is similar to results observed from professional hair removal devices.

According to Jodi, “Approximately 18 million American women are more concerned about removing excess hair than their finances, and another recent consumer study reports 69 percent of respondents admitting they feel more confident when they remove body hair.” Recognizing these trends, Dr. Dover and Shaser Bioscience, Inc., focused on perfecting a device giving consumers an alternative to traditional shaving, trimming and waxing. “The i-LIGHT™ Pro PLUS Quartz is second to none and is a real solution to getting rid of unwanted hair for good,” she explains.
