    Default Has anyone tried the NoNo hair removal device?

    I'm ippnterested in buying one if it really does work. A couple of years ago, my husband and I went in for laser hair removal for about a year or so ( facial hair for both, the usual women's stuff for me, and my husband wanted to see if it would help him so he didn't have to shave so often ). It didn't really seem to help, plus we had other issues with the place we were going for the treatments, so we stopped going. I'm noticing more hair growth on my chin area, so I'm wondering if the NoNo will help.

    I was just thinking about starting a similar thread. I'm really curious about this too.

    Ditto here too. I'm way too hairy, but can't afford laser treatments. I wonder how well it works.

    I think there's already a thread floating around in here.

    I'll let you read user reviews as found in Amazon website and you can judge for yourself

    Can't say you weren't warned.

    I looked into it earlier this year but all the reviews were terrible. I'll just stick with my Epilady and Notweeze wax tin.

    I use wax for non-shaving areas. I tried epilady for a while, and while it was the smoothest and longest lasting feeling by far, that MFer hurt too much for me to continue.

    I actually went ahead an googled "NoNo reviews", and most are pretty negative. A lot of them say the device burns the hair and leaves black stubble, and can even burn the skin. Also, that it only works on light, thin hair; not so much on darker hair. I think I'll pass...

    I thought I heard that some people here had tried the laser treatments before. Anyone who's had it care to share results or cost?

    My husband and I both tried the laser treatments for about a year, and neither one of us noticed much of a difference. At one visit, the nurse who was doing the treatments that day failed to "overlap" when she pased the laser wand over his face , and his facial stubble started growing out in a striped pattern, so he had to shave practically morning and night to avoid a striped 5 o'clock shadow.

    ETA: because my 2 SIL's were already going to this place, and had become somewhat friendly with the owner, they were charging us $50 each per visit.

    Damn. So there really is no hope.

    Well, my husband is a pretty hirsute guy (hair on his chest, lots on his legs, he has a thick mustache, and if he wanted to have a smooth face, he would have to shave non-stop, LOL). I have hair on my arms, and would have to shave my legs daily if I wanted them to feel smooth, so maybe we were more difficult to treat. I think at one point they did tell us that certain ethnicities are more difficult to treat than others.

    That's me. Five minutes out of the shower and shaving is ruined. I tend to bleach my arm hair because it's so dark. I would love to not to have to deal with that more than anything.
