      I am a believer!

      By K the Less Hairy Female

      Comments about Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X:

      I splurged on this and was very skeptical as to whether it would really work. It actually does! I have the "ideal" skin and hair color that they recommend, fast growing course hair-so this may contribute to the success of this gadget. After one treatment I had noticed significant changes, and after second treatment even more! Just a side note: If you are not the type that can inflict a tad bit of pain upon yourself...repeatedly...then this may not be for you. I have a very high pain tolerance and kinda scoffed at the idea that it would bother me. Legs and face are not so horrible, armpits and bikini line-wowza! Even I, tough as nails usually, had to resort to icing and Advil before and during treatment. Granted, those are sensitive areas anyways, but yikes. Is it worth it? Yes! From my brief experience, if you feel it or if it hurts, that just means it's working. The good news? The first time is a little rough, but later treatments do not seem as bad. The pain is likened to a rubber band snap on this and other sites, and while I feel it is a bit more than that at times, I can't think of anything else to compare it to. Grab some wine, some ice packs, numbing gel, and set aside a good chunk of time and go nuts!

      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 have been getting laser hair removal done at a plastic surgeon's office for years, with great success, but it is very slow and pricey, so I thought I would try the Tria. I followed the instructions but after about 5 minutes of the Tria running, the tip got insanely hot and would burn my skin. I kept trying, using it within the first few minutes, on particular dark hairs I wanted gone. Well, these hairs didn't budge at all, and I repeated the process daily for weeks. Again, ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGE AT ALL. I returned the Tria and would never recommend this to anyone.

                                    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 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.

                                              The Tria Laser 4X works only on brown or black body hair. Only Tria Laser 4X uses the same diode laser technology preferred by dermatologists to deliver permanent results at home.

                                              The laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair, so the longer the hair, the more pigment that will absorb the laser, which will result in a stronger sensation. You do not have to shave prior to using the laser to achieve results. However, to minimize the sensation felt while treating, we recommend people shave first. If people are concerned about shaving their face, we recommend using small scissors and trimming the hair as short as possible.

                                              The charger supply has universal input 100-240V and should operate normally with 240V AC input. You can just get a simple adapter to plug in the power socket.

                                              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 works only on brown or black body hair.
