Tria Hair Removal Laser Review
The Tria Hair Removal Laser is an at-home, handheld laser. It costs $395 if bought directly from the company. Treatments are supposed to be done every other week for 8 months or until hair is gone. The laser is cordless and only needs to be plugged in to charge. One charge lasts about the length of "zapping" both legs. Then, another charge will be needed. Currently, according to reviews on the Tria website, the ratings are 3.8/5 stars. Below are personal opinions from my own experiences.

I bought the Tria Laser Hair Remover in February of 2012 and used the Tria exactly as it said to in the directions provided. I missed just one treatment in the month of July. According to the website, I have the ideal hair/skin tone for the product, which is dark hair and light skin. I used it on my underarms, bikini line, and legs. I have used it for a total of 7 months thus far.
- It is very easy to hold. It's not heavy or awkward at all. It has a nice grip to it, as well.
- Cordless! After having an epilator that always needed to be plugged in, this was quite a relief.
- Not as painful as epilating or waxing. (But still a little pain involved).
- A quick beep tells you the laser went off and you can move to the next patch of skin. The laser is very fast, so you can really get into a rhythm and move up and down the legs quickly.
- There are five levels of intensity that are very handy for varying types of skin on the body.
- The price (although still expensive) is much cheaper than a salon trip for hair removal.
- The head of the laser is relatively small. You could laser an area even faster with a larger laser.
- The warranty is three months. If the products takes eight months or more to complete than I feel that the warranty should be slightly longer.
The biggest con: It doesn't seem to be working very well. Read on...
As stated above, I've been using the Tria Laser Hair Removal system for about seven months. Unfortunately, I have yet to see strong evidence of hair reduction. My underarms have had zero reduction or thinning of hair. My bikini area HAS had some noticeable reduction, but the hair is not gone yet. The hair on my legs is hard to tell, but I'd say it borders on no hair reduction. I don't understand why only some hair is removed, but I will continue for a few more months to see what happens. Overall, I probably wouldn't recommend this product to others, but if all the reviews on the Tria website are true, then I must be in the minority. Most people allegedly do find success with it. If you decide to buy it, I hope you have success with it as well.
