So hair removal is never going to be a glamorous or fun past time, but Tria is making it a whole lot more bearable with their new hair removal laser.
Basically, Tria make the only cordless clinically-proven hair removal laser you can buy without some sort of medical license, which means over a few treatments, you can permanently remove hair, which means no shaving, threading, sugaring or waxing in the rather near future!
The only drawback is that, like in a dermatologist clinic, not every skintone is appropriate for the laser – those with darker tones cannot use the laser. If you’re light-toned like me, however, you’re in luck. What I love about the laser is that you can use it everywhere apart from your eyebrows! I received the Deluxe Kit which also contains a calming gel to help ease any pain!
To start using the Tria, you first have to register it online – it won’t even start without this, but it’s a super easy process which took all of five minutes. Once I had registered it popped on instantly and was fully-charged and ready to go! To start using the laser you first need to unlock it by placing the bottom of the device on your skin – this means you can’t use it if your skin is too dark – super annoying, but props for the safety element! The laser is also cordless, which means there is no faffing around trying to find a plug near you – it also means I can sneak into the bathroom to use this completely privately.
The laser works best on freshly shaved skin, so after I hopped into the shower and got down to business I simply switched on the Tria and got it going. There are 5 separate settings of intensity, and I went straight into the highest setting for my legs – I’ve read a few people who have described the laser feeling like an elastic band snapping, but I didn’t feel a thing. As you work along your area, the machine beeps when you’ve buzzed properly and you just inch the laser making sure you don’t go over the same area twice.
The laser is a little time consuming to use, but since you are using it on dry skin, you can buzz your hair away whilst watching tv or movies, helping to pass the time. The laser also tells you how many times you’ve buzzed an area, and Tria gives a recommended number, so you can gauge how you’re doing. I’ve used the laser twice now, and I can’t wait to start seeing the results! What I love as well, is that Tria emails you to remind you to use the laser, thereby making sure you get your desired results! Tria recommends that using the laser consistently over a 3-month period to achieve maximum results, and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing!
Since this is a cumulative-use product I will be doing a couple of more posts detailing how I’m getting on with the laser.
The Tria is priced at £375 or £392 (as part of the deluxe kit which I have) and you can get a whole range of gorgeous colours too! The laser is available here.
