Springtime means warmer weather and more revealing clothing. From short skirts and shorts to tank tops and cut-out dresses, people everywhere will be sporting sexier looks this season by showing more skin. That means, it’s imperative to have smooth, stubble-free skin. But, why bother with razors or waxing, when you can be hair-free, permanently? That’s where the TRIA Hair Removal Laser comes in handy.
Tria Hair Removal Laser Review
Over the past few years, I had heard Kim Kardashian endorsing the at-home hair removal system and had seen a few infomercials about the product, which peaked my curiosity. So I was naturally interested in giving it a try. I figured, what did I have to lose (other than some unwanted hair)?!
The manufacturer claims that “The FDA-cleared TRIA Hair Removal Laser 4X uses the same laser technology used by professionals for in-office laser hair removal. The TRIA Laser 4X’s design, features and performance ensure that it’s convenient and easy to use in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Get the permanent results you’ve always wanted, and free yourself from the endless hassles of shaving and waxing.”
The TRIA Hair Removal Laser is an at-home permanent hair removal system that can safely be used on the legs, bikini line, underarms, feet, arms, hands, chest, back, and stomach.
With it’s light-weight, hand-held, battery-operated device, the TRIA Laser is actually quite simple and easy to use. After shaving the desired area (ex. your underarms), you simply place the laser tip on the area you want to treat. The laser emits a beeping signal (indicating that the hair has been properly treated). For each body part being treated (depending on the size of the area), it only takes about 15 minutes per treatment. You can even use the laser while watching television; its that easy!
The laser is to be used every two weeks (which allows the hair to go through different hair growth phases). After a few months, you see less hair growth in the treated area, and it takes longer for the hair to grow in. After several months, the hair is completely gone.
In addition to being used in the privacy of one’s own home, there are a few things I especially love about the TRIA Hair Removal Laser. Not only is it less costly than visiting a laser hair removal clinic (which costs thousands of dollars), it doesn’t leave the skin bumpy, red, or with ingrown hairs (like many other hair removal procedures, such as waxing and shaving, do). In addition, the system enables you to use different settings, which means you can minimize the pain felt by the laser. The lower the setting, the less pain (if any) you feel, but the longer it takes to get results. The pain is minimal (certainly less than waxing!), and feels like a slight sting when the laser hits the hair.
It’s important to note that the system is intended for people with light skin and dark hair. Since I have light skin and dark hair, I’m considered the ‘ideal’ candidate for this system. There is even a sensor that is used to detect your skin tone, to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the hair removal system. The required sensor acts as a ‘lock’ on the system. This means, if you don’t pass the skin tone test, the hair removal laser will not be activated (for use). The reason for this security feature is to prevent burns, discolorations, or scarring on skin tones that are not deemed light enough for this system. In addition, the TRIA Hair Removal Laser only works on “naturally brown or black hair (and will) not work on white, gray, blond, or red hair. These hairs do not absorb enough laser light to be effectively treated.” In addition, the Tria Hair Removal Laser is not to be used on the face, head, ears, neck, or private (sensitive) parts.
I’ve been using my TRIA Hair Removal Laser for a few months, and have been pleased with the results. It’s easy to use, cost-effective, and time-conserving. I will continue to use the system for the next several months until I achieve the results I’m seeking (permanent hair removal).
If you’re seeking permanent hair removal that doesn’t cost a fortune, the TRIA Hair Removal Laser is definitely worth considering.
