U.S. Medical, Inc.
U.S. Medical Inc. is a Denver-based company which distributes medical equipment to health-care practitioners.
A company called International Hair Removal Systems (IHRS) has listed U.S. Medical as a distributor on IHRS websites and printed materials promoting their SuperPhaser Gold "transcutaneous electrolysis" device.
Treatment with the SuperPhaser Gold or other IHRS devices should be avoided by all consumers. There is no published data showing it can remove hair permanently.
Reputable companies usually do not associate themselves with these devices.
According to a former employee, this company is no longer in business. On 20 November 2002, I received the following note from R.H., who was listed by Rejuvenu as the US Medical distributor for Super Phaser Gold (SPG):
First I would like to say, excellent job on your info web site!! I love what you are doing for the public (including professionals such as physicians).
Can ask a favor of you? I noticed that you have my name associated with U.S. Medical and selling the Super Phaser Gold. I do not work with US Medical anymore and in fact US Medical is no longer in existence. They went out of business earlier this year. At the time of my employment with USM I was in charge of the Aesthetic Sales Department. The company was starting to sell the SPG and shortly after the company started selling it they received tremendous negative feedback from customers. USM stopped selling the product for fear that it was a product that could not be reliable for effective results (as advertised by Lee Cole). It was a large mistake on USM’s part. I would like you to take my name of your website, please! I do not associate myself with USM or SPG and I would like to put that period of my life behind me, I was told to do my job and unfortunately for a time it was to try and sell the SPG (you know what they say about hindsight).
