Tria Laser Hair Removal Review

Trying Tria: The Two-Week Update

You might have heard about Tria, the at-home laser hair removal gizmo. (More on it here if you want some background.) Since Tria offered me the chance to try it out, I thought I'd give you an update now that I've been living with it for a few weeks.

Tria is much heavier than you'd imagine — not enough to be unwieldy, but solid enough to make you realize that it's a serious piece of beauty machinery. Using it is pretty simple; after unlocking it, you just turn it on and place the laser on your skin. Tria says that you may experience discomfort with each zap, much like the snapping of a rubber band. I beg to differ. Think of a quick, short pinprick and you get the idea. The process is simple, but time-consuming in the sense that you'll need to go over each square inch of skin about 50 times. (I Tria while watching The Shield.)

So far, things are going well. Little hairs are falling out here and there, so something's definitely happening. I still have at least six more treatments, so watch this space.

Any new update on this? I went ahead and bought a Tria system for myself (because I'm that desperate). I used it for the first time a couple weeks ago, and about half the hairs I zapped have fallen out. I'm pleased to see that it's working along the timeline promised in the user manual, but I'm curious to hear what some of the longer term results have been for you. Please post about your progress if you can!

Actually they're not as dangerous as people think they are. The "zap" is short, and short-range. Most laser devices require a gel applied to the skin to increase contact, too, and some even require pressure to the contact point (think how nail guns have to be pushed against wood to fire, they won't just shoot nails). Then again, of course, the closest MD to me that dispenses these is in Chicago :P

I wish it was acceptable to be a woman (or man) and have hair on their body. I also have olive skin, and would consider giving this a try if it were safe.

I don't think it's crappy at all — just waiting to see how the hair loss goes. Tatsauce, I'm pretty fair. If I were you, I'd go to one of the doctors that offers Tria (list here) and get a consultation. Depending on how dark your skin is, it may or may not work.

Hey Bellasugar, what's your skin tone, fair, medium, tan? I'm in the olive-tan range and I'm sure the results would be different for me if I were to try.

So basically what you are saying is that it's crappy?

Would love to know final results, a few years from now. Seems like a great investment! I'd zap it ALL!

I think it sounds creapy. Laser and doing it at home does not go together in my opinion.
