Palomar receives FDA approval for wrinkle treatment


BURLINGTON, Mass. Palomar Medical Technologies on Friday announced that it received a 510(k) over-the-counter clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for a patented, home-use laser device indicated for the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes.

“This FDA clearance for a laser to treat wrinkles in the home opens up a tremendous opportunity to tap into the multi-billion dollar consumer skin care market with our patented technology,” stated Joseph Caruso, Palomar CEO. “The professional treatment of fine lines and wrinkles using lasers has been well established and proven to be safe and effective for years in the doctors’ office using large and expensive lasers. With this breakthrough, consumers will be able to use similar technology in the privacy of their own home for a fraction of the cost.

The device was developed by Palomar and completed together with Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies under a previously announced agreement to develop light-based anti-aging devices.
