    Wow! If this works, it would be great! Do you have to protect your eyes like you do in a professional spa? I could imagine it would be hard to treat your skin while your eyes are covered.

    I just used mine for the first time. You don’t have to cover your eyes because the laser window has to be in full, complete contact with your skin to activate the laser. I started with low, but bumped it up to medium. I used it under my arms, bikini line and stomach. Very minimum discomfort. I can’t even call it pain. We’ll see what happens!

    Please keep me posted. I just bought the TRIA too after 12 sessions over the last 3 years at med-spas, which never got rid everything. So am looking forward to the same benefits that you mentioned. I’m starting my first one tonight.

    I just got mine yesterday from QVC I got it because it will be billed to me in 5 easy payments of 166.15 over a 5 month period and thats why I got it.But I had a few treatments done before and it was expensive to say the lease so I hope this works for me.

    I also got mine at QVC. I had professional laser hair removal a few years ago. Worked great but it does start to grow back over time. Having a hand held personal unit is wonderful – especially since I can treat new areas that would simply have been too expensive before. Of course it is only a good value if it works. I received it this week and used it several times in different areas so far. My skin is light and my hair is dark and often coarse. I have only used level 3 and there is a sharp twinge at times but it is momentary and not intolerable at all. I find it feels a lot like my memory of the professional treatments. I am looking forward to the one month update from Kate!!

    Seriously considering buying this. Have been all over the net looking for long term reviews/results. I have had treatments at a spa and am happy with results. Would like to spot treat and do other areas at home “if this works”. So far reviews are sounding pretty good. Look forward to reading all of your results/reviews.

    Will this work okay on the face??? Have Hirsuitism and it’s embarrasing!!!

    Marti – this is the answer from the TRIA website:

    Can the TRIA Laser Hair Removal System be used on the face, head or neck?

    No. It is intended for use below the neck: on the legs, underarms, bikini line, back, chest, stomach, arms, hands, or feet. It has not yet been cleared in the U.S. for use on the face, head or neck.

      It was not approved by the FDAfor face, because Tria never asked it to be. So of course they will say not to sue on face, head or neck However, I bought it to use on my facial hair and I am happy to sayafter a month I am seeing less hair. It is a godsent for people with Hirsuitism.

    @Giana: Lazar? Really? Even though the words “Laser” is clearly labelled throughout the article, you said “Lazar”? Do you go to school? Because if you can’t copy word spelling I doubt you can safely use a laser. I expect you may try to use it on your eye or the cat.

      @ Mochu, wow you’re crazy rude.  She is obviously a kid, asking if it’s “save to use” on a 14 year old.  Get over it!  Would you want people going off on your children like this? Think before you post.

    I have the Tria and LOVE it. I purchased it at 795. it is now 495. Buy it. You have to be consistent and use it as they say. I would say my hair on legs, bikini and underarms is 85%+ less. My legs feel softer and I shave so much less. When I do shave it takes a few minutes to do all. I had profession treatment on lip and underarms. I finished treating my underarms at home. I have used this on my upper lip with no problem. The laser has a battery life so many charges so I hope I can remove all the hair before the thing dies. I highly recommend it. I have documented every time I used it with the intent to blog it but havn’t. I would suggest to buy it, use and be hair free. Wish I had done this a long time ago (just like lasik). Some of the best money I have spent.

    I’ve only really heard good things about the system…and at the price it seems like such a bargain compared to what I paid to have a professional treatment (which I still want to upkeep anyhow!). I think it would be a wise investment for anyone.

    I bought Tria about a month and a half ago, which means I’ve only used it three times. I think I’m seeing some change, but I’m not sure. Three questions: does it work better if I use it more often the every two weeks as told by Tria? Also, once I shave I don’t know where to go, as I can’t see the hairs! What’s the trick? Lastly, how do I know I’ve gotten everywhere? There’s a lot of leg to cover! Even my bikini line, I don’t know if I got it all.
    Thanks for any help and suggestions

    Linda – it doesn’t help to do it more often. You’re trying to work with the growth cycle of the hair. So once you’ve zapped a particular hair, you need to wait for the hair follicle to try to regrow it again before using the TRIA again will be useful.
    My trick for trying to cover an area completely? White eyeliner pencil – though any color would work. I divide my leg into sections – once in half, then each of those into half, both front and back. Go up and down in rows within each section. Hope this helps!

    At home laser treatment is cheap and effective and has worked wonders for my hairy back. Beats paying thousands for professional treatment and and is much less painful than waxing. Home laser treatment all the way.

    i would love to know if it is OK to use the laser on the sensitive places between both bikini lines the private place pubic hair and even the lips and if we can use it around the nipples ? or its not safe

    And yet, at the expense of TRIA, advise to use only on the largest (fifth) setting. Although it is a bit painful (especially bikinis) but I think the effect is better. I have so far, the best result is a bikini and underarms, mostly bald spots with very rare zones of hair and that hair that has not yet fallen grow very slowly for two weeks can not shave (those that remain). Where the hair is too bright I’m doing fine, 2-3 flash in a row on the same place, between the flashes passes 3.5 seconds (lamp being charged) and then heats the hair stronger and the effect is much greater. Where the hair is quite dark enough a flash.
