Singeing, an ancient technique of hair removal, may have merits. After all, thermal destruction is what laser and microwave electrolysis are all about. The question is, does enough thermal energy pass to the root to destroy (or damage) the follicle?
The nono device looks rather intriguing, but due to the companies "unique" marketing practices and very high prices, I'm wary.
If you do a Google search for "nono" (with or without quotes, you will find page after page of "forums", where the nono marketing machine has placed apparently phony testimonials, usually titled something like "Is nono a scam?". Many of these sites have domain names that are various versions of the word nono, nono and hair, etc. In other words, all of these sites were created by Radiancy. Some examples are, "www.my-no-no.com", www.nonohairremoval.org
, www.nonohairremovalreview.com, and others. Then, they've flooded "spamvertising" / blog-looking sites with "unbiased reviews" that they have obviously planted.
All of this phony advertising is a very successful ploy to pollute search results with their own content. In other words, if you try to find anything related to nono being a scam, you will very reliably only find Radiancy's websites, and sites that they have paid to host their misleading content - at least on the first several pages of search results. Genius!
Anyway, I would really like to see if anyone has any real experiences (not someone that is paid by Radiancy either) with either the nono product or any other type of singeing. As I said, singeing seems to be promising as a permanent solution.
