The Silk'n hair-removal system is now available from Home Skinovations (Yokneam, Israel). The system recently gained FDA clearance for home-based removal of unwanted hair under the direction of a physician. It is powered by proprietary pulsed light technology and clinically tested for safe, quick, and effective removal of hair by patients in their homes.
The efficacy and safety of Silk'n was tested in a multi-center clinical study involving 4 medical centers in North America and Israel over the last 12 months. A total of 150 patients self treated with Silk'n in physicians' offices as part of the study, and the initial hair count as well as the post-treatment hair count of these patients was monitored by the investigating physicians. An average reduction of 50% in the hair count was monitored three months post three bi-weekly treatment sessions. No adverse effects were noted in the course of the study.
