I have been using this for a year at the maximum power. I have fair skin and dark hair in the area I was aiming at. The system allows you to choose from power 1 to 5. Power 5 is the most effective but rather painful. I decided that I wanted to test it for the maximum result it can give me. I have to admit I am rather disappointed. It is effective but it takes a lot more applications than a professional service. More applications mean more pain. You can reduce the pain by applying the Tria smooth start calming gel. It helps A LOT. Still hurts though and if you want results you will have to apply the maximum power. Overall I have to say that for me it is not worth the pain and the fuss. I will start my professional laser service again which is more effective in less time.
However, if you have time to spend, if you can bare the pain, if you are fair with dark hair you will see a hair reduction. So it does work but not as effectively as other methods and takes longer with more pain involved.
It is not recommended for dark skin.
I received this for Christmas and I can already see awesome results. After 5 weeks of use, the hair on my legs and underarms has drastically reduced. I am looking forward to a hair free summer.
I purchased the Tria 4x laser hair remover after months and months of research. I have a problem with unwanted facial hair that I find very embarrassing. I have paid for numerous laser treatments at salons that have cost me well over $1000 in the end. For roughly $515, I am able to use the Tria in the comfort of my own home and see results similar to what I would pay for at a salon.
The one aspect of the Tria laser that really had me feeling confident in its hair removing ability is how it feels when the laser actually zaps the hair follicle. Having experienced the "pain" of laser hair removal before (feels like a zapping or "sizzling" under the skin... some areas are more painful than others), I actually took comfort in the same zapping feeling that the Tria gave. I have been using the Tria 4x for about 3 months now and I have noticed a significant reduction in hair growth! I even use it on my husband's back, he loves it!
For the price, I think it is well worth the purchase! I can't wait to continue my journey to becoming (unwanted) hair-free!
I think this product is dependent on what type of hair you have. I have thick black hair on my legs, under arms etc....and found this product to be a waste of time and money. And yes it HURTS a lot!
TRIA LASER HAIR REMOVAL;
After trying everything out there, all these lasers, yes they may work temporary but your best suggesstion and only option is go to a professional certified laser clinic.
After 5 sessions you will be completely hair free, free of growth!
These are a waste of money, time, and effort
I bought this unit about 7 months ago. I was very skeptical at first because I have tried almost everything to remove unwanted hair.
First let me say that this product is AMAZING!! In the seven months that I have had it, almost all my unwanted hair on my face, underarms and feet are GONE , and not just for a week but permanently!!
I use it on the highest setting which is 5 , I will be completely honest and tell you that it HURTS! Like being snapped by an elastic over and over agin; but if you want quick and fabulous results this is the setting that you should use... If you want to take more time and endure less pain use it on 2-3 and it will work just the same but take a few months longer.
The instructions say use it one a week or once every two weeks but I used it every other day and the results are outstanding!!
I would recommend this product To ANYONE who has unwanted hair and doesn't want to spend thousands of dollars in a clinic, or has any medical condition that hiders them from having someone else do it for them!!
Very good home removal n easy to use
I bought the Tria 4X in November off of TSC, and researched it for quite awhile before shelling out over $500. TSC had a 20% sale so I thought, well they offer a 90 day money back guarantee so why not give it a shot. I only have done my bottom half of legs and have only done about 3 treatments and well, I took my razor to Mexico last week (just in case) and just did it to smooth things out but truly hardly any hair has grown back. I think with one more treatment, possibly two, I will be hair free with maybe a touch-up down the road. You must shave before doing a treatment or it will sting a bit and I used the strongest setting (there are 5 settings). I plan on doing more hair removal on upper legs, bikini and armpits, especially now that I know it works so great. I will also get my 3 teenage girls going on it, as we spend a fortune in our house using wax and buying razors. A treatment does take awhile (about 20 min/bottom half of one leg) and unit needs to recharge after about 1/2 hour, so patience is a must but if one was purchased now for hopes of a hair free summer, it would be no problem. The only thing I wish the Tria had besides lower cost, is that you can't use the laser while charging and it would definitely speed up the process.
This is a great investment if considering doing salon laser hair removal or if you are a regular waxer or shaver.
Don't waste your money. I used this for 3 months doing exactly what the directions said and saw no result, it almost seemed as if my hair got darker/coarser if anything. They don't recommend using this if you have light hair and I have dark so that was not a factor. Very upsetting as I was hoping this would solve my hariness woes. I must also mention it's uncomfortable as it feels like someone is snapping you with hot rubber bands.
I tried this product as directed, my skin and hair are ideal for it to work, but I did not see any results aft 120 days. Would not recommend.
