Have you heard about the laser hair remover you can use at home? I hadn't, I thought this type of hair removal could only be done professionally.
Well I got to give the Tria 4X a try myself and thought I would share with you my experience. First I would like to say do your research before you buy. The device can only be used on light and medium skintones and cannot be used on naturally blonde hair.
The Tria hair removal lasers feature the same core diode technology preferred by professional Dermatologists. This technology is proven to be more effective for permanent hair removal results compared to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. The lasers are suppose to disable the hair follicles by targeting the colour pigment at the root
How to use
PREP YOUR SKIN
Cleanse, shave and towel-dry for the most effective treatment.
SELECT A TREATMENT LEVEL
Customise to your comfort with 5 energy levels. Start on a low setting and work your way up.
CHOOSE AN AREA AND BEGIN
You’re one pulse away from smooth skin. After each pulse, lift and place the tip in an overlapping pattern.
I was surprised at how easy it was to use. I read the instructions and a couple of minutes later I was doing the patch test.
I love the fact the device is locked until it tests that your skin is a suitable shade preventing any damage being done to you skin.
Once I held the bottom of the device over my skin the device unlocked and I was ready to use. I applied the Tria Calming Gel and set the intensity setting to 3 using the button on the top and off I went.
I used on my legs and underarms as these are the bits I feel like constantly needs shaving. I couldn't feel any pain on my legs but the underarms I did feel some. It wasn't unbearable and over time this became less and less.
Now I am a natural dark blonde hair girl and didn't realise until after I used the product that it may not be suitable. So some of my hairs where too light for this to work. My leg hairs are so much lighter than my underarms and I think this is why there was no pain.
It took me about 35 mins to do both legs and my underarms so longer than shaving but if it going to stop having to shave in future months I was all for it.
So has I previously mentioned my hair is naturally a dark blonde so I wasn't expecting the best results. Having said that my legs are definitely less hairy than they were 3 months ago but I can't give up shaving just yet.
I have to say though I really impressed with the reduction of hair growth on my under arms I would say it has easily reduced by half and I think my aiming may have missed a few spots so i may be hair free in a few more months.
Because I didn't think this was a fair trial due to my hair being the wrong shade I also got my sister to try has she has naturally dark brown hair. She has only used the device 2 times on her lower legs and she too has already seen an improvement.
All in all I'm impressed with the Tria 4X and hopefully soon shaving my underarms will become a thing of the past! Damn you dark hair girls who can get totally hair free bodies without the need to shave or monthly waxing treatments as does anyone really enjoy doing this.
Ill update you in a few months time to let you know if I'm totally hair free and how my sister is reacting to it too
