It is a well-known fact that if you want to get rid of excess body or facial hair, the best permanent solution is laser hair removal. Although it has been proven both safe and effective, there are still many people who have yet to take advantage of it due to the cost involved with multiple sessions or simply the embarrassment involved with letting a laser technician see parts of your body that are seldom exposed. For those of you who want to do away with unwanted hair once and for all, a personal laser hair removal system might just be the answer you've been looking for.

Review of the Tria Laser Hair Removal System

Home systems can offer some significant advantages over going to a clinic for your hair removal services. With a device designed for home use, you can do treatments on your own schedule and at your own pace. While there are several different systems on the market for home use, there is only one that is FDA cleared.

What it Costs

It is a handheld medical grade system called the Tria laser and it carries a suggested retail price of $995. Before you write it off as being too expensive, you should note that many online retailers sell the device for under $600. When you compare that to the cost of up to a dozen clinical sessions per body part at an average cost of $150 per session, you can easily see how a home system can save you a considerable amount of money over the long-term. It is even more economical if you split the cost of the device with another person.

How it Works

The Tria system provides long-term hair removal just like a traditional full size system. It's very easy to use, even if you've never used anything like it before. It comes with detailed instructions that will get you up and running in no time at all. The device has five built-in comfort settings which offer a painless and effective way to get the results you are looking for. For many people, fear of pain is the biggest obstacle preventing them from having the silky smooth body they are after. This feature eliminates that concern and still gets the job done safely and effectively.

Just like a standard laser, you will need to do about 6 to 10 sessions per body area over the course of several months to target hair in each phase of the growth cycle. The personal system does have a smaller treatment head than what you would find in a commercial medical spa so it does take a bit longer to complete each session than it would in a clinical setting.

The upside to this in my experience is that you are zapping less hair follicles with each pulse so it is much less painful as well. The biggest and really the only drawback for me was that the battery life wasn't long enough to complete a full treatment session on a large area such as my legs. This wasn't really a big deal for me as I was ready for a break after finishing one leg and charging the device gave me an opportunity to take one.

How Does it Perform?

When you use the device properly and carefully follow the instructions, it performs very well and in my opinion; the results are equal to what I have seen from having my treatments done at a clinic. If you are thinking about buying a Tria personal laser hair remover, I do strongly believe that this product is an excellent choice. All in all, the Tria laser system exceeded my expectations and has saved me a significant amount of money.

While it is a bit expensive to buy the device, overall I thought it was well worth the money for the privacy, convenience, and ability to do as many treatments as I wanted. I would definitely recommend the system to anyone planning to permanently remove hair from multiple areas as it has been a reliable device and offers an opportunity to save a significant amount of money in the long run.
