The No! No! Hair Remover uses heat, otherwise known as ‘Thermicon technology’ in marketing speak, to sizzle the hairs and make them wither on the vine. Apparently the touch of the hot wire is enough to scare the little follicles right down to their furry little boots, at which point they pack their bags and head off to cooler climes in Finland. Or something. The fact that the thing is a mere $250.00 has us enthused. After all, how could a product so incredibly well priced fail to deliver?
Thermicon works on the thermal principle of heat transference conducting a gentle pulse of heat down the hair follicle. The hair is then separated close to the skin while the signal continues to travel down into the follicle where hair growth takes place. In the follicle the Thermicon Effect is thought to disrupt the cell communication responsible for hair regrowth. The more often this happens, the more effective the treatment is.
