Themicon Technology Hair Removal System by Nono! and Aibi


Last month at the launch of AIbistyle’s NONO! hair removal system. I was happy to learn about the newest tech in portable hair removal systems. If you are a user of many traditional technologies such as IPL, you would know that it isn’t suitable for darker skin tones.
Here’s when techicon technology works its magic.
The Heat Advantage
Thermicon is a heat based technology, and uses no light. Lasers and IPL technologies rely on light and the heat generated by light to achieve their hair removal goals. The light used by these methods is drawn to the melanin in the hair follicle. Light, grey and white hair has no melanin and is very hard to treat with alternative technologies as it may not be affected at all by the applied light. With darker skin types, the contrast between the melanin in the skin and the melanin in the hair follicle may not be enough to safely and effectively remove hair without burning or other side-effects, like changes in the skin colour.
no!no! bypasses these problems by using ThermiconTM technology.
No radiation. No skin colour or hair type discrimination.
Read on to find out more on how it works.

 

Ok so basically your hair growth goes through a 3 distinct phases
:1. Anagen:
This is the active phase. The root is connected to the follicle and hair growth occurs.
2. Catagen:
In this transitional, the hair shaft begins to pull away from the root as hair growth begins to stop.
3. Telogen:
This is regarded as the resting phase, the hair shaft and root are completely separated and no growth occurs.
Oh the trouble is all three phases are occurring at the same time. And there is no way of knowing which hair is at which stage. For long-term hair removal to work, the only way to damage the root and inhibit hair growth is to catch it in the anagen phase, when the root is connected to the hair shaft. That’s why the longer you use no!no! the more effective it will be!
ThermiconTM technology. The development of a proprietary patented thermodynamic wire to transmit gentle heat to the hair, while including safety mechanisms has enabled Radiancy to adapt this professional technology to a home use product.

The ThermiconTM Effect

In our search for a totally safe and painless method for removing unwanted hair we decided to turn the whole concept around and develop something new and completely different – ThermiconTM technology. The development of a proprietary patented thermodynamic wire to transmit gentle heat to the hair, while including safety mechanisms has enabled Radiancy to adapt this professional technology to a home use product.
Thermicon works on the 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. The more often this happens, the more effective the treatment is.
Although they happen almost simultaneously, the Thermicon effect on the follicle can be broken down into 3 distinct processes.
First Contact
First Contact is when the thermal wire from the Hot Blade touches the hair, singeing it and removing it up to the skin. This is when the thermal signal is its strongest.
Crystallization
The thermal signal crystallizes, or turns to ash, the uppermost part of the hair in the hair follicle. Crystallization may temporarily leave coarse residual hair that can feel prickly to the touch.
Disruption
The thermal signal continues down the follicle and into the root where it is thought to disrupt cell communication considered responsible for hair growth. The greater the disruption, the longer the hair takes to grow back

 

See that thin filament there? These are the tips that work their magic on crystalizing your hair.
Yes they will need replacement after a certain amount of usage.
This is the buffer pad to remove charred hairs. :) Kinda like a scrub but much gentler of course.
Yes- here’s what my hair arms look like after some uses of the No!No!
I do not have curly hair okay hahahaha.
Those are the ‘fried’ hairs that No! No! dealt its damage to!
here’s the shot BEFORE treatment
Woe is me – I even have hair on my fingers -_-
So I tried to zap them with No!No! but due to the contours the regular sized No!no! wasn’t as effective.
Honestly, there are a few cons for some:
It’s time consuming and thus you need patience and you also need to master it. Also, the crystallized hair needs to be buffed off. On first usage of course – I’ve mastered it so I haven’t gotten super smooth results. But like anything, practice makes perfect.
There’s a smaller kit the8800 model which uses a tinier filament which you can use on your bikini line and face etc. facial hair. Perfect isn’t it?

But there’s a very big pro for some – especially those who cannot shave as they have sensitive skin susceptible to razor bumps. And for those who cannot stand the pain from waxing. The No!No! produces no skin irritation like in-grown hairs, red pimples, or rashes. There’s also no pain. (Just a smell of burnt hair at times)

In the US. No!No! Hair has won the “Most Innovative Product” Award from HSN.

NAILS: Rio Beauty – Available at Aibi stores

Last week, I attended Aibi Style’s launch of Rio Beauty, the latest beauty brand from England to hit our shores.

Rio is one exciting innovator of beauty solutions – for professional salon worthy treatments in the comfort of your home. The London based brand offers a huge array of electronic beauty products across 5 categories – hair removal, face , body, dental and nails.

Think IPL, Epilators, Electric Threading, Laser hair removal, Blue Light Teeth whitening, Face Lifting, Neck Lifting, Even airbrush tattoos and a huge range of one of my favourite things – Nail Foils and Chrome effect films. (Think Minx nails).

Here are some pictures of me testing their Professional DIY nail foils.

The first 2 were done by Lavinia from Aibi for me, and I finished the next 8 fingers myself so I could give my personal account of how it went for me.

Rio Nails offers 2 sets of Nail Foils -each with 10 rolls of foil designs per box.This is the mixed set there there are things like leopard prints, flower motifs, lace to hologram foils.

 

The other set which I didn’t use (is made up for 10 different halographic foils.) Each set comes with a step by step dvd

Step1:To begin, prep your nails with a base coat. Thereafter you can choose to apply a base color or not. You can’t apply foils on bare nails so either have a base coat ,or base color.
Step 2: Apply the nail foil adhesive once your base color/coat dries . The adhesive is whitish but turns clear once it is dry. Wait about 8mins before applying the foil.

( the longer you wait the better. perhaps 10mins).

Step 3: Once the adhesive is dry, apply the nail foil and use the rubber cuticle pusher to rub it down, especially at the edges where it seems harder to adhere.

Step 4: Remove foil and Viola pretty chrome looking nails! I LOVE the sheen.

Repeat on all nails with different foils or however you like them. You can apply the adhesive on half a nail , or in angles for different effects.

I recommend you do so one hand at a time (because from what i faced after applying the adhesive on both hands. I got slightly impaired and almost messed up when the foils were sticking to my right hand when I tried to handle them whilst applying them on the other hand. LOL.

The finished product.

The foils are pretty fragile even with a top coat on.

TIP: You can apply 2 layers :)

Or use a strong topcoat such as Seche Vite or Poshe. In addition to the one provided in the kit.

This is what the Holographic nail foils set looks like.

Retails from $75 per kit (to be reconfirmed once I’ve checked with Aibi once more) .I think it’s quite affordable going by how long this will last and how many times you can use it). Refills aren’t sold separately however.
