Dry ice to remove hail dents?

Have any of you guys tried this method to remove hail dents?

Did it work?

Did you heat the metal first before applying the dry ice?

I have also seen where you can use hair dryer then canned air to pop dents?

i looked into this and thought about doing it to my truck (lets face it i cant do much to make the paint worse) ive been told its BS. still may try. i figure she will end up in a body shop either way. but if i do it now and mess the paint up, its gonna get repainted anyway.

if it works let me know. from what ive seen. dry ice, heat, dry ice, heat ......

My neighbor has done it on an old car back in the day and he said it worked pretty well for most of the dents.

I'll try both methods and see what happens. Previous owner neglected to tell me about all the body damage.
