      Comments about Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X:

      I have owned this for a week and will update my post as I continue.
      I just wonder if anybody else broke out in hives all over after use?
      I have never broken out with an allergic reaction before but after my first use I began to see hives all over even where I didn't use the laser. In all fairness sometimes hives just show up with no cause according to my doctor but these hives didn't respond to normal treatment with just Benadryl. I had to take steroids. :(
      I am going to try to finish my other leg in a few days to see if it happens again. I hope I can update it doesn't happen again.
      Overall my 1st treatment went smoothly I used on 1 leg,, my arms, and above my lip. planned to do the other leg the next day because I ran out of time. The charge held at level 1 just fine. The "zap" here and there surprised me but wasn't horrible. I hope to post that it works. I noticed no results after 1st use of course but maybe after I get to use more. The worse part is how long it takes, cost, and maybe the surprise from the "zap". I'm sure I'll get use to it though. Will update soon.

      Comments about Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X:

      Love it! As long as you use it as instructed and have the skin/hair color combinations listed as "safe" it will work beautifully.

      Saw results within the first week - about 25% of hair follicles were deactivated with my first treatment. Few weeks in it's at 50%. Also noticed an added benefit; a few age spots / sun spots in a treatment area faded & disappeared.. The laser targets melanin pigment of a certain shade whether it's hair or sunspot - BONUS! :)
      Worth every penny knowing I will never have to wax again.

      A few pointers:

      - Tria makes a "fan noise" as it cools while you use it (especially in a warm room), and also spontaneously makes that noise while it's docked & charging (but there's a 'silent mode' to stop this, which slows the recharge time. Info about this is in Tria manual).

      - Per one full charge, I was able to treat one lower leg or one upper leg at a time, then had to wait an hour for Tria to recharge. That's 2 hours total to do both legs (plus down time to recharge between treatments).. Basically I've had to schedule a "spa day" at home twice a month to treat all areas twice per month, as instructed. Still, time well spent compared to shaving (daily 10 min shaving adds up to 5 hours total per month). Plus with Tria there's an end in sight.. It takes less and less time as hair gradually stops growing back & disappears completely.

      - Underarms take about 5-10 minutes total for both, super easy.

      - Start by testing each area you plan to treat and find the setting that feels most comfortable for that area (level depends on hair shade and thickness).

      - Going over the level you're comfortable with can give you a bit of a zing & sizzle; this is a professional grade laser and you'll feel it, so set the power level to what's comfortable - it will still work.

      - If you ice the area briefly before treating, you may get comfortable enough to go up a power level.

      - Enjoy your treatment and combine it with your fav music, a face mask, a cup of tea / latte or whatever else makes you happy to build a positive association with the laser sessions. It helped me look forward to my "spa day" and stay on schedule with the treatments.

      Hope this helps. :)

            this is the best facial hair removal system! If you want to remove large areas on your legs maybe not. But i am not sure. I got it for my face and have used it for a year. It removed my dark stubble on my chin. I am 52 and with the changes came a lovely gift of facial hair uggg!!!! Thank you tria! I have to occasionally do up keep but it sure beats the options. I have been happy and i have no burn or excessive pain i don't know how people have that problem. I do however have fair skin with dark hair.

            Works! Worth the Money!

                  Comments about Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X:

                  I wanted to use this for a few months before I posted a review. I have been using the Tria 4x for around 2 months, and have had a lot of success.
                  I have dealt with dark hair on my face since I was a teenager (I am now in my 30s). My problem areas are my cheek and chin. I have always been extremely self conscious about this and plucked multiple times a day. I researched the Tria for a long time before I purchased since it is so expensive.
                  I have treated my face weekly at full power for about 2 months. I have noticed a 90% reduction in hair on my cheek. I would say my chin is at about 80% reduction, these hairs appear to be a little more stubborn.
                  The hardest part is shaving my face in between treatments. It is not an issue shaving legs/underarms between treatments since that is an area I normall shave, but I had a hard time shaving my face.
                  It takes awhile (maybe 10 days) for the dead hairs to work their way out of the follicle. After awhile, I noticed how the 'dead' hairs looked different. I had a few that were stubborn in working their way out and helped ease them out with tweezers. If the hair is dead, it will slide right out when plucked. If you get any resistance, do not pull it.
                  I have also treated my bikini line and underarms. These areas are much more sensitive and I can't yet tolerate it on full power. I am starting to see a difference in my bikini line. My face seems to be responding more quickly (maybe because I can easily tolerate the full power on my face)?
                  One downfall I had was that my original device stopped working after a few weeks. I would get an 'error' message when I started using it. I was able to return it to Ulta in exchange for another one without any problems since it was defective. My new one has worked just fine. Looking back, the original one I ordered did not come fully charged. Your Tria should come fully charged and ready to use right after you activate it via phone or their website.
                  Some tips on saving money. Use ebates.com! I bought mine during a special promotion when I got 15% cash back! Join Ulta's rewards program. I bought the Tria during my birthday month, which gives you double points. You can use your points towards future purchases. I earned so many I ended up with lots of free makeup! Bonus!
                  I would buy this again and highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with unwanted hair, especially on the face. I have been very happy with my purchase.

                              I've only had the product for a few weeks so I can't say if it is working yet, but I know that I can only go to level 3 because anything higher stings. I would also recommend purchasing the calming gel. But I love the fact that I can do this in the privacy of my home. I know the price seems high, but in comparison to having this done by a professional, it's a bargain!

                                          I saved up my Ulta Reward Points for almost 2-years in order to get this product and was delighted when I got the additional 20% coupon, however, when it arrived it was defective. I read the instructions and charged the unit that evening. Once fully charged the unit would not power up so I ended up having to send it back. I am still waiting for my replacement. This was a real disappointment especially since I had to go through the hassle of sending it back and could not exchange it in the store. I hope it will be worth the wait.

                                          I have used this on my underarms, bikinni & lower leg for a couple months now and it WORKS! I used to have the worst razor-burn, especially in my underarms. Now I don't and it is an amazing feeling. The hair that is growing back is much finer and slower growing. It is painful on a 5. I did my underarms on 4 and it still worked just as good as the 5 did on my legs. I saw another review where the writer says to ice the area first, I am going to try that next time. I have been taking ibuprophen 1st, but it doesnt help as much as I'd like. If your tired of razor burn & constantly shaving, this is the product to buy.

                                              You may use the Hair Removal Laser 4X on your bikini line, which is the pubic hair visible beyond the boundaries of a swimsuit. Do not use the Hair Removal Laser 4X on genitals. These areas may have more sensitive skin, a darker skin tone and/or a greater hair density. Using the Hair Removal Laser 4X in these areas may cause serious skin injury.

                                              A:

                                              After your first treatment:
                                              On occasion, some users experience mild redness that quickly dissipates within 24 hours.

                                              After your first month:
                                              Clinical studies have shown up to 70% reduction after just two treatments.

                                              After 2-3 months of treatment:
                                              Hair re-growth will begin to appear lighter and finer.
                                              You will begin to see a visible reduction in the amount of re-growth, especially in areas where hair growth tends to be dense.

                                              After 3 months of treatment:
                                              Hair follicles that have been deactivated by the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X will no longer grow hair. Continue to use the Tria Laser 4X as necessary for touch ups until your skin is smooth and you're free of the endless hassles of shaving and waxing.

                                              We recommend that you prepare your skin before each Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X treatment for best results.

                                              Follow these steps:

                                              Cleanse the treatment area thoroughly, removing all cosmetics, lotions, and creams from the area you wish to treat. (This will allow the laser treatment to easily penetrate the skin.)
                                              Shave the treatment area thoroughly using a new razor. This allows the laser treatment to be most effective because the laser works on the hair inside the follicle, under the surface of the skin.
                                              Wipe your skin with a cool, damp cloth to remove any shaving cream or soap, and then dry the area well. Please note: Waxing and plucking are not advisable any time between treatments because both remove hair from the follicle. The hair inside the follicle needs to be present for the Hair Removal Laser 4X treatments to be effective.

                                              Please note: Waxing and plucking are not advisable any time between treatments because both remove hair from the follicle. The hair inside the follicle needs to be present for the Hair Removal Laser Precision treatments to be effective.

                                            Will this product work for blonde leg hair? Another ulta product was said to only work for people with dark hair.

                                              Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X is safe for fair to light brown skin tones. People with dark skin tones have a higher risk of skin injury with the Tria Laser 4X because of higher levels of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its beautiful brown coloring.

                                              The Tria Laser 4X can be used on women's facial hair from the cheek line downward, which includes the upper lip. No barrier lotion or gel is needed. Simply cleanse, shave and towel-dry your skin to prep your skin for treatment.

                                              Yes, you can certainly wax or use a depilatory product such as Nair rather than shaving.

                                              Men should not use it on their face due to the density of facial hair. The Tria Laser 4X can be used on women's facial hair (cheek line downward).
