I've also noticed that my legs don't have a problem but my underarms and bikini line tend to get really irritated if I shave too often. So those are two of the places I'm most excited to try this on and where I decided to use the device first. In addition to the irritation, I am half Italian so even when I shave certain places, you can still see the dark hair under the skin. So I'm hoping that this will also help with that.
How does it work? The Tria Laser uses FDA cleared, professional strength diode laser technology to target pigment in the hair follicle. (For this reason it is only recommended for use on women and men with with light to medium skin tones and brown to black hair.) The laser disables the hair follicle's ability to regrow hair. For optimum results, they recommend that you use it once every other week for three months.
I understand that $449 is a lot of money for some people. However, it is just a fraction of the price compared to professional laser hair removal (and you get to do it in the privacy and convenience of your home). Let me break it down for you:

So far I have used the device once. I'll be updating you as I go through the process with the results I'm seeing, but for now I will just give you my initial thoughts on the process. When you first turn the device on it is locked and you place the sensor located on the bottom of the device on the area you want to treat. If the device is safe to use on your skin/hair combination then the device will unlock for you. You then select which setting you would like to use. There are five different settings going from lowest to the highest. It just depends what setting is comfortable for you. You place the tip where you would like to start treating and the device delivers a single laser pulse. You then move the device overlapping the area you just did and go along like this until you have finished. For me, it felt like a hot prickling sensation similar to if you ever had grease splattering on you while you're cooking. It hurt, but was definitely tolerable. I was also sent a tube of the Hair Removal Laser SmoothStart Calming Gel. Just to see a difference, I didn't use it on my underarms and used it on my bikini area and I really do think it helped make the process more comfortable. I can't wait to start seeing results and then move on to other areas.
