Welcome to part one of my three-part series on Tria!

Let’s kick off the series with an introduction to Tria, what it does, who can use it, and more!

What is Tria?

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.

My need for Tria

You know about my mustache, I talk about it all the time. My mustache and I have a very poor relationship. For as long as I could remember, I’ve had a little fuzz above my lip, but over the years, the hair has gotten darker and more prominent. I have done everything in my power to take care of my facial hair issues without taking drastic measures:

  • I tried Jolen cream bleach, it made my facial hair orange which didn’t blend very well with my skin
  • I tried Nair, it burned my skin
  • Razors leave behind bumps and sometimes, I knick myself
  • Plucking is painful
  • Waxing leaves so many hairs behind

So, I decided to give Tria a test run over an 8 week period.

In this series, I will cover 8 weeks of use, with the third and final post covering results. After 8 weeks, I will continue to update on Snapchat and Twitter, so make sure you are following me (@glitteryglossy) !

What’s in the box?

Tria has two different packages available for purchase,  Hair Removal Laser 4x ($449) and Hair Removal Laser 4x Deluxe Kit ($475). Tria Hair Removal Laser 4x comes with the laser and a battery charger. The Deluxe Kit includes the laser, battery charger, and SmoothStart Calming Gel.

Tria vs Laser

There are many pro’s to purchasing Tria. The most obvious factor is price. Tria retails $449. Now, let’s check out the averages for professional laser treatments shall we?

  • Chin, $100 per treatment
  • Full face, $250 per treatment
  • Upper lip, $100 per treatment
  • Regular bikini, $150 per treatment
  • Half legs, $250 per treatment

(source)

On average, you need 8 sessions per year for leg hair, so professional laser treatments will be expensive. Tria will pay for itself after just a few uses.

Tria can be done in the comfort of your home. No appointments or trips to the esthetician. Tria also comes with a 90-day money back guarantee.

Who can’t use Tria?

Sadly everyone is not able to use Tria:

Tria

Do not use the Tria if your skin tone matches one listed as ‘not safe’. This includes anyone medium brown or darker. The way Tria works, it emits a pulse of laser light which heats up the dark pigment inside the hair follicles. If you are medium brown or deeper, the skin could absorb too much laser light and be burned, discolored or scarred.

Do not use if you have lighter hair color (blonde, red, white or grey). Tria only works on brown or black hair. Lighter hair pigments will not absorb enough of the laser’s energy to disable the hair follicle.

Do not use if you are under 18. The use of Tria in people younger than 18 has not been studied and could result in injury.

Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Do not use on damaged skin.

 

Stay tuned for part two, which will cover how to get started using Tria, and my personal experience.

    Loving your reviews on this! I my mustache too. And I’m worried now that my hairs are going to get darker as well. I’m not sure if I will be able to use this but I know someone who would love this instead of having to get a wax or plucking.

    I did not know you need 8 professional laser treatment sessions per year for leg hair – that would really add up!

    I’ve had a lot of the same problem as you. I’ve tried nair and shaving leaves sore, ingrown hairs and bumps. Tria seems like a great option.

    Am almost 81 years old . Having a terrible time with my face and neck .Been plucking for 50 years. Now it’s almost uncontrollable. Hair was dark when I was young. It’s grey now. On SS but would still invest if it would work. Can anyone advise me?

      The Tria does not work on grey hair. I’m sorry.
