Does the "no! no! really work?
In June, 2013, the Department of Ophthalmology, Dermatology, Otolaryngology, Nashville Centre for Laser and Facial Surgery, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN published an abstract on the results of their study of the effacy of the "no! no!" device. Their abstract was published in the American Society For Laser Medical & Surgery's official journal, Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, by Wiley Periodicals, Inc..

Does the no! no! device really work?

It describes a blinded, controlled, prospective clinical study of a hot-wire device promoted for hair removal and the reduction or delay of hair regrowth (no!no!, Radiancy, Inc., Orangeburg, NY) compared to a shaving control. In summary, it concludes that the no! no! device did not produce lessened hair density, decreased hair re-growth rate, greater duration or effect, nor induce changes in hair thickness and color. They concluded that the hot-wire device does not offer any benefit as compared to shaving.
