Jenna the Aurora permanent hair removal specialist here to continue discussing the Mouzon v. Radiancy, Inc. lawsuit.
One of the studies in question mentioned in the lawsuit is titled “Clinical Evaluation of Handheld Self-Treatment Device for Hair Removal” by James M. Spencer. This study was funded by Radiancy, Inc., and Dr. Spencer was a member of Radiancy, Inc.’s scientific advisory board. This doesn’t exactly impart confidence as to the non-biased nature of this study.
Another reason the study didn’t hold up so well was because Dr. Spencer only used twelve participants. There was no control group, which is a huge problem in scientific studies. You can’t prove much without a control group! The study only ran for 12 weeks, which isn’t nearly enough time to make any statements about permanent hair removal.
The lawsuit is still ongoing as of August 2016. The last filing I was able to find was an order allowing the case to be dismissed against the CEO, but refusing to allow the case to be dismissed against the company. I’m very curious to see how this lawsuit will end; who knows how long it will go on for?
