If you are tired of shaving every few days, or done with the pain of waxing, maybe it is time to try an at-home laser hair removal device. At-home hair removal lasers can provide professional results in the comfort of your own home. One of the most popular options is the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X. Billed as one of the most powerful at-home laser removal device on the market, this laser hair remover offers customizable treatment levels and quick results.
Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X review
The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X uses the same laser technology as many dermatologist offices, not Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment – like most at-home laser hair removal devices. IPL technology uses flashes of light to reduce hair regrowth, while the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X uses more powerful laser technology that delivers four times the amount of energy (hence the name). This device offers significantly more energy than most other at-home laser devices, outperforming others like the Silk’n Infinity, Philips Lumea, and Braun Silk.
Using Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X
An LED display informs you of battery level, treatment intensity and pulse count, so you are always getting the most out of every treatment. The rechargeable battery not only makes sure you have enough charge for a complete body treatment, but it also uses a plug-in charger, so you never have a cord in your way while performing a treatment. The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X has five different treatment intensities, allowing you to customize your treatment to fit your skin needs and tolerance. Tria suggests you start at the lowest setting and work your way up, to reduce the likelihood of irritation. The built-in pulse counter helps you track the number of pulses in your current treatment, so you can ensure your treatment has even coverage and you can more carefully manage the intensity of treatment for different body areas.
The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X has been tested by dermatologists and has been licensed by Health Canada. It is a great option for not only addressing leg hair, but also for unwanted hair along the bikini line or on the face. While it may not completely get rid of hair in the treated areas, it is likely it will reduce regrowth. All laser hair removal treatments can be time consuming, that is why the Tria has an ergonomic design – so you can comfortably complete even full body sessions. The smaller, targeted laser design of the Tria also makes it a great choice for those tough to reach areas, like the bikini line, as it can easily manage those areas.
Can I burn myself?
As lasers can be quite dangerous, the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X has skin sensors that ensure your device never activates unless it is in contact with skin. Laser treatments are, unfortunately, not equally effective when used to treat all complexions and hair types. Laser hair removal works best on dark, coarse hair, although those with lighter or fine hair may still achieve results. The device will be less effective against red, grey or blonde hair. The laser is also not safe for those with darker complexions, as medium and dark skin tones could be damaged by the laser. As with any new device, always do a test patch to test for sensitivity and irritation before completing a full treatment.
Is Tria Laser worth it?
While the upfront cost can be daunting at $599USD, the results may be worth the splurge. The overall cost is less than in-office treatments, and the device comes with a sixty day money-back guarantee. Available in three colors (pink, green, and grey), the device also comes with a one year warranty.
