Trying out a Tria

Trying out a Tria

Postby Piceous.Hazel » Fri Feb 27, 2009 3:52 pm

Got the new model of the tria and have been testing it out today. I'll try to post about results over the next few months. As to first impressions: The product arrives lightning fast, as if expedited shipping was included into the cost. Pretty cool. Also they upgraded me to the newest model for less cost then the older one. So good customer service.

As to the laser itself, it is really easy to use. It zaps quickly, is easy to turn on, and (at least the new model) is far quieter than a shaver or a blow dryer. I'm uncertain about the charging issues that have been mentioned by others because----- lasering hair is Painful!!!

The real challenge with the device is that while an individual zap isn't rough (a bit like touching a match quickly), the accumulation of this small nettles is intense. The body reacts, wanting you to stop: It was designed to avoid this sort of thing and it's going to put on a fight! It's exhausting on the nervous system. Concentrating on breathing I might pull of a run of six zaps before my hand just won't willingly go on. Then I sit there, listening to music, waiting for the aching (again like you touched a hot pot with a finger and now, despite the cold water, its letting you know its been wronged) to pass. This is with 800mg of Ibuprofen. So unless you are stalwart, or a viking, you may have to break up larger areas over several sessions (i.e. guys and their torsos). But then, the device is yours, easy to use at home, so you can take all the time you need. This is a long term project.

Please let us know how it goes. I've been very interested in that. As for the pain, isn't there anything you can do to numb it? When I had laser hair removal in an office, she put a cold gel on that really helped numb the pain. I only felt little stings. Hope it gets better.

I've been using the Tria for three months and so far have about 50% hair reduction on my bikini line, legs, underarms and even on my chin and upper lip. I've actaully had about 80% reduction on my chin and upper lip. They don't recommend using the Tria on the face but I've had no issues using it there. I personally would not use it near my eyes but for chin and upper lip hair it works great!! This machine is well worth the price. I can't wait to see how much more hair will be permanently removed after a few more treatments!!

So, so interested in this. Have been searching about it, but have only seen posts about short-term effects. Can you let us know how it's going? Are results lasting? Thanks for sharing.
