“Home shopping television is an extremely important contributor to no!no!’s multi-tiered marketing platform,” said Dr. Dolev Rafaeli, CEO of PhotoMedex and President and CEO of Radiancy Inc. “We are always pleased to set new sales records for ourselves and our business partners, especially when we are beating the records we have set.
