Note: this company appears to be out of business. The information below is an archive.
On 17 March 2001, these purveyors of scams and misinformation put out a press release heralding a new product called Better Lase. They claim using this topical preparation on the arms “improves the effectiveness of laser hair removal by more than 33%.”
Given that there is no published proof of this claim and given the disreputable business practices of the key players, I would urge all consumers to avoid Better Lase until there is published clinical data to back their claims.
