Guide Review: Tria Laser Hair Removal System (with five power settings)

So I have completed eight treatments with the Tria Laser on my left underarm and I cannot tell you how excited and thrilled I am with the results!

It Takes Time

I am the type of person who wants to see immediate results. If you're like me, you might be a little frustrated, but please stick with it! I started out slow beginning the process at a power level one and eventually made it to level five. For more information about the beginnings of my venture see part 1 of my Tria Laser Review.

Finally at Power Level Five

When I made it to level five, the highest level, it was a little painful. Since it only takes me about ten minutes to complete one underarm, it's worth every second of the hot rubber band feeling I get with every zap of the laser. I think I could get through the treatment faster, but I wanted to make sure I got every inch so I would have better chances fighting off hair growth!

Virtually Hair Free

After my eight treatments, I seem to be hair free with the exception of a few that I missed. I noticed through the process that my hair began to grow very slow. Normally, I would have to shave daily, but even after the first use I began to notice I would not have to shave as often. Now I can't even see the hair.

I'm Loving...

The great thing about Tria Laser (read profile) is that even though it's expensive, I realize I will be saving money in the long run. No more monthly waxing, no more ingrown hair and no more burning underarm!

Only Two Charges

The other cool thing is that since I started this whole process, I only had to charge the system twice. I was able to travel with the unit so when I was away during the time I needed to complete a treatment, I could do it. I was pleased that I could take it with me and actually show it to people who had questions about it. It was nice to be able to share such a great device that was tangible rather than just talking about it!

Next Up: My Other Underarm and a Leg

I have been so pleased with this hand held laser that I started the other under arm and one leg! I hope to complete the process with some before and after photos to share.
