Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, 04/25/2012
Thaysen–Petersen D et al. – Available evidence from prospective, uncontrolled clinical trials indicates short–term hair removal efficacy of currently available home–use light–based hair removal devices. Additional controlled trials will be helpful to substantiate the efficacy and to better predict the incidence of adverse events associated with optical home–use hair removal.
