Everyday Use Questions

How do I do a no!no!treatment?
Glide the no!no! Hair at a steady pace across your skin in a smooth steady motion without stopping. Glide it towards your body and/or against hair growth. The blue light should remain steady. This lets you know you are gliding at the proper pace for the best results. Do not go backwards while using the no!no! Hair. Only glide in one direction. When you finish each section, use the buffer to exfoliate your skin and remove treated hair to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. Buff in a firm circular motion the areas that you have just treated.
What preparation is necessary before I use no!no!Hair?
Just make sure your skin is completely clean and dry before you begin treatment. Do not use a cream or lotion before treating with your no!no! Hair.
When should I charge my no!no!Hair?
Charge your no!no! Hair completely (4-6 hours or overnight) before your initial treatment. Check your status screen. Recharging is necessary when the empty battery icon is visible and/or the red signal light flickers.
Can I use no!no!Hair while it is charging?
After the initial charge, you may use no!no! Hair while it is plugged in.
Why do i need to Buff?
Buffing is an essential part of the no!no! treatment. It exfoliates the skin and removes crystallized, treated hair for a smooth finish. Without proper buffing, skin may feel rough and stubbly.
Can i use it everyday?
We do not recommend using no!no! Hair every day. Hair regrowth will not be sufficient for a successful treatment (1mm minimum length). You will only use up your Thermicon tips and have to replace them more often. We recommend you wait for at least stubble length hair to show before doing a no!no! treatment.
Why does it smell?
We do not recommend using no!no! Hair every day. Hair regrowth will not be sufficient for a successful treatment (1mm minimum length). You will only use up your Thermicon tips and have to replace them more often. We recommend you wait for at least stubble length hair to show before doing a no!no! treatment.
What can i do about the smell?
Although the smell of a no!no! treatment is not pleasant, it is a sign that it is working properly! Try aromatic candles or potpourri to help cover the smell.
Why can't I use no!no!Hair with the narrow Thermicon tips on the genitals or breasts?
These areas of the body are either curvy and/or have delicate skin, making it difficult to use no!no! Hair100% safely. We do not recommend using no!no! Hair in these areas because we consider your safety to be a first priority.
How long should hair be for a no!no!treatment?
For best results, hair should be between 1-3mm long (stubble length).
How do I know which Thermicon Tip should I use?
Use the standard Thermicon Tips that come with your no!no! for large, flat areas like the legs, arms, back and chest. Use the wide Thermicon tips that come with your no!no! Hair for large, flat areas like the legs, arms, back and chest. Use the narrow Thermicon tips for small, sensitive areas (compatible only with the no!no! Hair, no!no! PRO, and no!no! MICRO devices) for treating curved and sensitive areas, like the face, underarms, knees, and bikini line.
How do i know which Treatment Level should I use?
Always start with the lowest treatment level, treat a small section and wait a few minutes to see how your skin will react. Adjust the treatment level until it is comfortable for you.
How do i treat curved areas like the elbows, knees and underarms?
When you glide over those areas, follow the natural curve of the body. You might need to hold the area tight to make sure the Thermicon wire is in contact with your hair.
Not all of my hair is treated after one pass, what should I do?
You may need to go over certain areas a few times to catch every hair. But don't overdo it. After 3-4 passes, take a break and work somewhere else. After your skin has had a few minutes to rest, return to that area to finish the job.
Why don't I see less hair after using it for a week or two?
Hair does not all grow in the same place at the same time and everyone is different. no!no! Hair takes time and patience.
What is the best way to treat facial hair?
Hold the area tight to make sure no!no! Hair is in contact with your skin. Press lightly against the skin. Avoid excess pressure. Glide the no!no! Hair in one smooth motion following the natural curve of your face, making sure to keep the blue light steady. If it flickers, adjust your speed.
How should i buff my face?
Use the small, enclosed buffer. Make sure to use a clean, fresh buffer. Buff lightly against the skin. Avoid excess pressure.
I would prefer not to use the buffer on my face, what can i use instead?
If you choose not to use the buffer, use an exfoliating cream to remove crystallized hair.
Is it okay to use lotion directly after a no!no!treatment, or should I wait?
It is highly recommended to use an alcohol-free, moisturizing lotion directly after treatment. We recommend using a cream such as no!no! Smooth After Treatment.
What do i do if the red light turns on during treatment?
The red light will turn on if you are not gliding properly or if you need to replace your tip. Turn the unit off and then back on, or replace your tip. Now, begin treatment again, making sure you glide in one smooth, non-stop motion.
What do I do if no!no!Hair does not start when I glide it on my skin?
Reset the unit by turning it OFF and then ON. You may need to hold the button down for a few seconds. Now, begin treatment again, making sure that when you glide, the Blue Light is continuously ON and does not flicker. If it is turned on properly and still does not start, check the Thermicon tip status from the Status Screen. You may need to replace the Thermicon tip.
