Let There Be Light – FDA Approves First At-Home Hair Removal device - TRIA Laser

Part 2

The TRIA is clinically proven safe and effective for light to medium skin tone types and dark hair. The range of skin tones that can safely use TRIA is clearly marked in a chart and printed on the box.  After purchase, users must call a toll-free number to verify their suitability and activate the TRIA laser with a special code.  Next the user must test their skin with a proprietary skin sensor before each TRIA laser treatment to confirm that their skin tone is within safe parameters. A green light on the sensor means TRIA can be used safely and will unlock the TRIA when it is waved over the hand piece.  A red light on the sensor indicates the skin color is to dark for safe use and the user will not be able to unlock the TRIA for use.

Dark brown and black skin absorb too much of the laser energy and can cause skin damage. Additionally people with light skin tone who have a tan must wait until the tan fades before using the TRIA. The skin sensor will detect if your skin tone is too dark for safe, effective treatment and the TRIA device cannot unlock for use if this is the case.

Some people experience slight discomfort when using the device but is usually subsides once the treatment is over. Many describe the feeling like a small rubber band snap. The TRIA allows users to select one to three levels of intensity appropriate for one's particular sensitivity level. Temporary redness and minor swelling at the treated site sometimes occurs.

Clinical studies conducted clearly validate the safety and efficacy of the TRIA according to its representatives. Overall 100% of study participants rated their results as satisfactory or better after the third treatment and 70% of subjects noted that hair did that grow back was lighters and 87% felt that it was finer.

TRIA is often recommended by aesthetic physicians for at-home use and touch-ups in between office visits.

It's not particularly effective for white, gray, red, or blond hairs.

Based on national averages a woman can spend $3,000-$10,000 to remove unwanted hair from underarms, bikini lines, and legs over a 10-year period. The average physician's fee for a 3-8 treatment series can range $1,050-$2,800 for each body area. The retail price for the TRIA Laser Hair Removal System is under $995.
