Venus Concept Inc has received FDA 510(k) clearance to market and sell the Venus Epileve laser hair removal solution, the company announces.

The Venus Epileve is a portable and versatile tabletop device that offers two modes of operation (SLIDE and PULSE) and a real-time cooling system aimed at ensuring patient safety and comfort.

Designed to be cost-effective, fast, and comfortable, it can be used on all skin types (Fitzpatrick skin types I-VI), including tanned skin. In addition, it is integrated with Internet of Things (IoT) technology that collects technical information to help providers enhance business operations and improve treatment efficiency.

“Building on our recent launch of the Venus Epileve in Europe and Canada in the second quarter, we look forward to launching the Epileve the US in the third quarter,” Domenic Serafino, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Venus Concept, says in a media release. “We have established a strong presence in the laser hair removal market with our Venus Velocity, and we leveraged that technology to develop a new hair removal solution designed specifically for customers outside of the traditional market of dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

“The Epileve is a differentiated laser hair removal solution, at a price point that customers in the non-traditional market will find attractive, which expands our addressable market opportunity,” he adds.
