Moving on from the helpful advice others have supplied me about laser and electrolysis, I came across the oddly-named no!no! hair removal devices that use heat - see https://www.officialnono.co.uk/

I know nothing about this device. Has anyone used it?

@airlane1979  From the amazon reviews it sounds like it struggles with leg hairs, but the fact it doesn't require dark hair is a + compared to IPL & Laser

No!No! Rebecca...I have just looked it up, I have done most things: creams, inhibitors, razors, epilators, salon laser, electrolysis, IPL laser and home IPL laser (a lot) but not seen this. The reviews I'm sure you have seen.

I expect like most of these it is geared to finer women's hair?

I went to the No-No website and read the 'How it works' section.  There's an accurate description of the hair growth cycle.  There is a statement that it uses 'heat-based' technology and is virtually pain free.  It's basically marketing fluff.

They do not describe their technology at all.  But they do say their technology sets them 'apart' from IPL and laser.  That is misleading. 

IPL and laser are also 'heat based'.  With both of those technologies, intense light energy (broad spectrum or a single wavelength) is used to overheat hair follicles and cause hair death.  Darker hair absorbs light energy more efficiently than light hair.  That's how laser and IPL work. 

It's unclear how No-No achieves similar results.  I'm skeptical of this product.

I used a Philips Lumea Prestige IPL to finish my hair removal program after COVID closed my dermatology clinic.  It was much slower than the lasers my clinic used, but it was effective.  After six months of regular use, I had results that were essentially the same as if I'd used laser.  It just took longer.

@emilyalt Many thanks for that. I too was sceptical, as the marketing materials are so vague. I'll take another look at the Philips range.

I bought mine from Current Body in the UK.  But it looks like they no longer carry the Philips brand.  However, they do have a new home laser unit that looks better than the other ones I've seen.  It's not cheap.  £579.00

Hi,

I have used the No!No! and basically it's supposed to heat up a filament inside the device and the heat is transferred through the hair to the follicle where it stops the follicle from growing. It isn't a bad product, but it takes quite a while to see any results. I would suggest using the silken Glow Hair Removal instead. It maybe a bit more expensive, but the results are much better as I have used it on my legs and gotten good results so far.

@inuyasha ah, a user review - interesting! How long have the results lasted with the Silken Glow device? Is it only for legs?

OMG, is this thing still floating around out there. As the name implies, NO NO. All it is, is a fine filament that burns the hair off, it does not remove the root. The filament eventually wears out. It’s junk at its finest. Get a good epilator instead. I have been using epilators for years now. I only have to shave about every four weeks now. All my dark hairs have quit growing for the most part after about five years. It doesn’t hurt any more. Some people like me swear by epilators, some don’t like them as for some, epilating leaves ingrown hairs because they break off the hair instead of pulling out the complete hair and root. I like the Remington products best.

Interesting Jill! I have one other option (though I am a total epilator girl...I have 3) is the Sonique Ultra.
That is a rare bird. I have never used it haha. It is a high frequency ultra sonic hair remover...works on all hairs!

I should do an article on all these and my experiences .

@alexl Yes! Please do. I'm sure pretty much everyone here wants to know what works.

Yeah I’ve tried various products from messy creams to chainsaws I think. lol the only thing I find works for me is the epilator. It gets the root out. As you probably already know, hair grows in three phases. Hugs, Jillleanne

@jillleanne Does it work on facial hair?

@airlane1979 Facial hair? You might want to down a quart of Crown Royal before attempting the face. Having said that, some epilators do come with a facial attachment but it’s only for fine hairs, not a beard. Think of epilating your face like this: imagine stretching your lower lip over your head and sneezing.

@jillleanne Thankyou for that graphic description! I know nothing of these devices so I'm getting educated here.

@airlane1979 Just a note on another method, hair creams. If you decide to try creams like Nair, just be careful as they will burn the skin if left on too long and will leave scaring if left too long.

@jillleanne It's no fun, but I removed my entire beard, neck and top lip hair with an epilator...all 25,000hairs!...and not just once...I'd say every hair at least 5 times. For me it was the option, after other options failed.
I'm not saying I recommend it...but it worked for me, 99% of all hair gone.

@alexl I think I'll stick with my electric shaver and disposable razors.

Just thought I'd add...that I've had excellent results with IPL (but only on legs and torso, not on the face...as this modality only works on dark hairs). ...and the price was under $200 (American). At this point, those areas (sans groin) are about 99% hairless...and nicely smooth (based on HRT too). I'd be interested in something (inexpensive) for the face. I'm TRULY tired of shaving that area!!

@judith Thank you, I'll look into that solution. I'm tired of shaving all over. Any reduction would be welcome.
