I was so excited when I was recently asked to review the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X! I have been wanting to try this cool device for years. I have light skin and dark hair, so my body hair is fairly noticeable. I get so tired of shaving every day and thought it would be amazing not to have to worry about unwanted hair.
What is the Tria Laser? From the website:
The first and only FDA-cleared hair removal laser available for home use, the Tria Laser 4X uses the same diode laser technology preferred by dermatologists. The Tria Laser 4X targets and permanently disables the hair follicle to stop hair growth on the face and body for permanent results.
I received the device in Lavender and a tube of Smoothstart Calming Gel. The gel is to apply on clean, dry and shaven skin right before using the laser. “Featuring an Indian plant extract with anti-inflammatory properties, SmoothStart Calming Gel may help diminish the sensation of the laser treatment on higher levels for best results.”
I first tried the Tria on my chin. I have some facial hair and have been wanting to remove it. The Tria has 5 energy levels. I tried it on the lowest level on my chin. It stung at first, but the more I used it the less I felt. I then tried it on my right forearm and couldn’t feel the heat at all. The next time I do my arm (you treat an every two weeks), I will try a higher setting. I am only doing one arm in hopes that I will see a difference in the hair on my arms in time.
I am going to post again in a few days to tell you how the hair is growing back on my chin and arm. I am also going to treat my underarms and will let you know what that is like!
You can purchase the Tria Laser 4X at http://www.triabeauty.com. The device is normally $449, but is selling now at a Black Friday price of $427 for the laser and 2 oz. of the SmoothStart Calming Gel.
Leave a message if you have tried Tria and let me know how it worked for you!
