This is a product that claims to be the only FDA approved technology that uses the same laser energy as professional treatments. This product claims to offer long-lasting results, and it requires you to have eight treatments to completely remove hair from your body. This product hopes to provide an alternative to many customers who do not like to go to in-office to laser hair removal centers and would also like to eliminate shaving and waxing completely. This product requires you to shave and cleanse your skin completely, and then towel-dry the area that you are going to treat. The skin sensor on the device will test your skin tone, and the light will turn green if the skin is suitable to treat. The product encourages you to use the highest level available that you are comfortable with, and the levels range from 1 to 5, low to high. The product instructs you to overlap the area that you treat on your skin so that you can cover an entire section of your body without missing any hair. The customer is supposed to treat the skin every other week for up to three months, and then they will digress to once a month for five months following. Overall, this product claims that it will take 6 to 8 treatments to completely remove brown hair with a medium texture. If the hair is coarser and darker, it may take 8 to 12 treatments to remove it completely. TRIA was developed in 1993 by scientists experienced in the technology of laser hair removal, and it claims to be able to save the customer money as compared to more expensive laser hair removal treatments. However, please keep in mind that the customer is only allowed to use this product from the neck down, so for any facial areas with coarse hair, such as the chin and upper lip, the customer absolutely must see an in-office laser hair removal technician for treatment.
