Seems like everyone is having a difficult time finding out information for this product, so…being that I used to work for the manufacturer (emphasis on “used to work for”), I will go ahead and post a link to the white paper.
I found out about the deal between Radiancy and Sephora just last week from another former rep, and I was definitely shocked (I’m a bit behind on the laser/IPL scene since my focus has shifted). So I went ahead and did my google search on “sephora no! no!” and ended up at the “Can’t believe Sephora is marketing No!No! now” post on this website.
So what is my opinion? I suppose I haven’t really come up with one quite yet. However, I do think it’s silly to purchase this device if you want to remove hair on a larger area like your legs or arms. I know that if I purchased this device for myself, it would end up in the back of my closet after a month or so since I get really lazy about that kind of stuff…I even own a professional system and stopped using it after 2 treatments. Now I have what I would call little “islands” of no hair under my arms. Looks a bit goofy, but oh well. I’ll get back to it eventually.
By the way, I think it’s great that there is a website like this out there for those considering laser hair removal. However, I do think it also creates a bit of confusion since everyone has their own opinions and experience. Like lefty2g indicates, there has never been one method or one system that works for everyone. There will and always will be many people who never realize any type of success after undergoing a series of treatments.
The problem lies in the fact that we are all different. It’s just like prescription medication. Some people respond well and benefit, while others don’t. It also depends on who delivers the treatment. Sometimes they aren’t trained properly, do not use the correct power settings, do not space the treatments apart correctly, etc. It all just “depends”.
I suppose the best way to look at it is that you are taking a gamble if you decide to go ahead and move forward with trying it out.
As for me, I’ll just keep on shaving for now…
