Partner Devon Bruce Files Class Action Over Tattoo Removal Machine
Attorney Devon Bruce of Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. has filed a class action lawsuit that accuses Cynosure of false advertising relating to its purported tattoo removal machine Picosure. Cynosure sold the machines to dermatology and tattoo removal practices across the country beginning in 2012 when it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The complaint alleges that although the company advertises that the machine removes tattoos and shows pictorial results, the machine does not do so. Allegedly, Cynosure published marketing materials that described Picosure as “the world’s first and only picosecond laser for tattoo removal,” showing before-and-after images where tattoo ink had been completely removed.
Dermatology and tattoo removal practices purchased the Picosure device under the belief that it would remove tattoos as advertised. When they began to raise questions regarding the efficacy and safety of the product, says the complaint, Cynosure continued to make misrepresentations regarding its product and did not allow companies to return the product for a refund.
This action is currently pending in the Northern District of Illinois Federal Court.
