I’ve had this for years, and it does work. In my mid-30s I began to notice my hair getting thinner but extra hair sprouting everywhere else. I hated the shadow above my lip. I used the Tria to combat this hair in particular, and while the results aren’t super dramatic, there is a noticeable difference. (Also I could be way better at keeping up with my sessions.)
- By and large, it doesn’t feel like much, if anything. You need to use that conductive gel that it comes with, of course. I feel no pain when doing my upper lip*. Most underarm zaps weren’t painful. Some parts of my leg were more sensitive than others.
- It definitely creates a noticeable difference in amount and thickness of hair growth.
- You can do this AT HOME.
- You pay for it once.
The bad stuff:
- You can’t use it on dark skin (or tan skin). There’s a sensor that’s supposed to keep the laser from firing if your skin is too dark.
- You have to be disciplined. Set reminders on your phone for every session. You need to keep up with it or you can’t complain about lackluster results!
- Can’t get a whole leg done on one charge.
- The treatment window is so tiny. I imagine there’s good reason for that, but man… to be able to cover two or three times as much surface per zap would be awesome.
The Tria is a revelation, and I am really happy to own it. I think it’s an important addition to any DIY beauty enthusiast’s toolkit.

*I noticed that when I was doing my upper lip, the laser would send shock waves through the nerves of the teeth behind my lip. A truly horrendous feeling. I prevent this by holding my thumb under my lip and in front of my teeth like a shield. It makes all the difference!
