Tria Beauty Next Generation 4X Laser Hair Removal for Face & Body
Really Does Work
I've had this item for about a year now and it truly does work. It takes several treatments to start seeing the results, and you have to do maintenance treatments about once a month or so, but this absolutely, positively works. Ever since I was 16, I've struggled with shaving, plucking, waxing, creaming, electrolysis, and even in-office laser treatments to reduce facial hair growth and nothing ever worked until this. I wonder how different my life would've been if I'd had access to the Tria laser 25 years ago. This is an amazing product, and one that I am so grateful for.
I am disappointed that I spent so much money and still shave, would have returned it but kept hoping
Spokesperson Is Not From Tria!
I was not impressed with results. In hopes this would give great results for my honeymoon but it was a no go. Qvc has a wonderful return policy so I returned it, no problem. But after seeing the QVC Tria spokesperson on other infomercials, I was shocked! I felt dooped! Ereka Vetrini is not from the Tria company nor a Tria expert. Bummer QVC.
WORST PURCHASE EVER !
I purchased when TSV, should have returned. I kept thinking I had not given it enough time. It is sitting on my closet shelf. Expensive mistake. It was also painful and time consuming. Should have gone for the epilator. Less expense, less time and less pain Better results!
Ok so I have a lighter medium olive skin with dark brown hair so it would work for me.
I did this one 1x a week for 7 weeks on upper lip, arms, under arms and lets. DID not see any differnce in upper lip or under arms which I think is the most important. Did leave some spotty patches of no hair on legs and arms. Returend item becuase #1 area I wanted it for was upper lip and it did not work at all!!!
DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!!
I've owned this device for less than 20 months the it will no longer work. I contacted Tria and they offered for me to buy a refurbished device $129, after I've already spent over $400 on the original. I've rarely used this device as you can only use it on certain areas 1x a week. I own a Clarisonic which I've owned for 4 years and use 3x a week and it works perfectly.
Poor customer service, poor results of the device.
A must buy!!
I have suffered with facial hair due to polycystic ovaries for the past 18 years. I have to shave every morning in the shower and by the afternoon I have the five o'clock shadow under my neck. It has been humiliating at times for me. This product has been my absolute saving grace for my facial hair problem. I had to use it daily on a setting of 4 for the first week. Then I used it every other day for the second week on level 4. I now use it once a week on level 4 and my facial hair is almost completely gone. I had black course hair. Anyone who has polycystic ovaries and suffers the unwanted facial hair then this is the product for you. It does hurt when you use it but I put an ice pack on the area I wanted to do first and that helped a lot. To me it is worth the pain for all the years of having unwanted facial hair!!
Gave up after 18 months
I've had this laser for a year and a half. I have the right skin and hair combination... white skin, dark hair. I thought at first it was going to work. The hair grew back quite slowly, that's about the only positive thing I can say about it. But after weekly treatments (I only missed 3 in a year and a half) all my hair grew back. Even the one spot of hair near a freckle that I concentrated extra treatments on, it all grew back. There doesn't seem to be any truth behind the theory to "keep treating the same area over and over to get the NEW CROP of hair". Every hair grows back eventually. Perhaps slower, but it grows back.
PATIENCE & DEDICATION - IT WORKS!!
Thrilled with the results! Use ice to numb the skin & don't bother using a setting below 5. The laser light must be absorbed into the follicle root to kill the hair root, so you want the strongest setting. And the hair MUST BE dark hair. Also, the light doesnt travel far, so hair needs to be right at skin level = freshly shaven. (I did a lot of research on laser hair removal.)
Within a month my underarm hair was dramatically reduced. Honestly too, I used the laser more than they recommend, like every other night. I did that for a month. It's been 2 1/2 months now as I'm writing this review, and I no longer have to shave my underarms. Thrilled!!
I'd also started doing my upper legs, and am just as thrilled with the results. Yes, it takes time, but so what; it's time well spent! It's just a ritual now in the evening; I sit down in front of the TV with a bowl of ice, a towel & my Trivia. (Numb area with ice then quickly towel dry. I do this everytime the ice wears off & I begin to feel the zap.) I pick an area on my body, & go over it & over it. I alternate body areas every evening. Scheduling appts at a salon & the time spent there - so time consuming. I did the professional salon treatments for my bikini area, and after 4 appts and over $500 spent with still more to go, I just lost hope & motivation.
Definitely one of my best beauty purchases EVER!!! Just remember: patience, dedication and ice, ice, baby!!!
Stop using retinol / retin-a so it can work
I was getting great results & then suddenly the hair started growing back - it was truly bizarre! And then I realized I had changed moisturizers. I researched the active ingredients in my new moisturizer & found that retinol & retin-a repair damaged hair follicles & is even used in hair growth serums/creams for the scalp. Once I stopped using that moisturizer the tria started being effective again, thank heavens!
I have seen no improvement whatsoever. Very disappointed.
I was extremely disappointed with the Tria 4x. I have been using this for facial hair and I really had my hopes up. It is extremely painful, definitely more than a pinch like the rubber band feeling described. I have been in tears every time I have used this piece of equipment. I have dealt with facial hair issues since I have been 14 years old and now at 37 years of age, I realize this is something that I will continue to have to deal with. I would not recommend this device. The cooling gel did absolutely nothing. I even used numbing agent gel that had 4% lidocaine and the pain is way to extreme.
