ICLED® is the first and only patented light guided technology for cosmetic surgery. The all-inclusive surgical system is a one-time use disposable, surgical kit that enables procedures to be performed using a less invasive approach. The LED light transillumination through the skin provides feedback to the surgeon regarding the depth and direction of travel of the illuminated Suturod® and attached suture. ImplicitCare obtained FDA clearance to market and sell the device in November of 2009.
