Hi Everyone,
I too am a long term viewer but new time contributer to this site but am also holding out hope for a 'permenant' hair removal solution that works on fine blonde hair.

I think PDT sounds promising and after alot of surfing the net I have found a company called Lasemar 800 who are already using pdt for hair removal.

Has anybody heard of this and what country is it avaliable in?

Lasermar 800 is a machine according to that link and it uses a 808nm wavelength which is exactly what the Lightsheer uses. The Soprano uses 810nm.

I don't understand what suppose to be special in this machine but if it actually use 808nm for hair removal then they might be in trouble because Lumenis own the rights on that wavelength.

Hello all,

I have emailed Quest Pharmatech and they basically said that they have to conduct many more trails before consumer launch as SLO17 has been classified as a drug by the FDA.

I got no impression of when they are hoping to acheive this by but really hope they hurry up (although I really dont think we will see anything in the next couple of years). Has anyone else heard anything?

Thanks for following the SL017 trail and coming back to update. I hope they are in good financial standing so they can continue their work.

The Pharmatech page on the SL017 is still up, but I think they've discontinued the research. The page is an old template compared to the updated site. You can't get to the page from the current site links anymore. The old page describes their focus as pursuing developments for dermatological conditions and prostate cancer therapy. The new page describes their focus as the treatment of cancer by combining immunotherapeutic antibodies with chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy, radioimmunotherapy or immunoadjuvants.
