Spectrum Brands Holdings' Remington personal care division received U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance to market its i-Light Pro, a light-based hair removal system.

Remington describes the ProPulse technology as using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) for hair removal results similar to laser hair removal or IPL in-office treatments. Clinical testing reported that, on average, participants had 47.8% fewer hairs six months after three treatments, similar to results observed from professional hair removal systems.

Remington developed the personal care appliance with Shaser BioScience, Inc., maker of energy-based aesthetic dermatology devices for home use.

Dr. Jeffrey Dover, a Board Certified Dermatologist as well as Shaser co-founder and medical director, said the technology, "Closely matches the key light output characteristics of the best clinical hair removal devices by delivering long 110 millisecond pulses at wavelengths above 650 nanometers."

The technology works similar to laser hair removal devices by disabling growth of the hair follicle with a laser-like flash of light that targets only the unwanted hair, while helping to keep surrounding skin cool.

Remington estimates the global retail hair removal market at approximately $16.5 billion annually - including blades, razors, and other depilatories used in homes - but added that these over-the-counter solutions generally deliver temporary results.
