I’m all about the DIY beauty and skincare treatments at home. I recreate a serene spa-like atmosphere in my bathtub almost every night, and religiously give myself manicures every Sunday. So naturally, I’m very excited to try laser hair removal at home as well. This “medi-spa” twist to my at-home beauty routine is courtesy of TRIA, the only FDA-cleared laser hair removal system that delivers permanent results at home.
The TRIA Hair Removal Laser is designed to work on medium to dark body hair and fair to medium skin tones. This describes me to a T, so I’m hoping for good results! I totally get a 5 o’clock shadow in my underarm area and it’s a serious annoyance, especially in the summer. So that is where I will be starting with the TRIA. I can’t even imagine a morning (and sometimes an evening) without shaving my underarms, so I am thrilled at the thought. Important to note, the TRIA is only intended for use below the neck — so absolutely no zapping away at any rogue facial hairs.
In order to see results, the TRIA must be used every other week for six months. I am going to be your guinea pig with this process, and chronicle my experience with the TRIA from now until next April. To keep myself on track with the bi-weekly treatments, I’ve already set up calendar reminders. Wish me luck…and stay tuned!
