Hair Removal – Do-It-Yourself vs. Professional

Laser epilationMillions of men and women struggle with unwanted body hair. Tired of shaving and other painful, ineffective methods, many have turned to laser hair removal, which offers lasting results after just a few sessions. Throughout the years, “at home hair removal devices” such as the no!no! hot wire have suggested that one can achieve successful, lasting hair removal without visiting the professionals. Is this a well-kept secret or a feeble attempt to mimic the pros?

no!no! Hair? Or no!no! Hair-Free?

To test the effectiveness of the no!no! hair removal device, researchers from the Nashville Centre for Laser and Facial Surgery and Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville studied two groups of high-resolution before-and-after photos. One group attempted hair removal via shaving, while the other group utilized the no!no! device. Both groups had their photos taken before hair removal was attempted, weekly during treatment, and each month thereafter. It turns out there was no!no! distinguishable difference between the no!no! and traditional shaving.
