Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X Review

You know that unsightly hair on your legs and upper lip? How’d you like to obliterate it forever? Now you can with the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X, an FDA-approved device that has been clinically proven to safely eliminate hair on both the face and body, and the only laser hair removal device that has been approved for home-use. Read my review to find out more about how this technology works.

How It Works

The Tria Laser 4X uses diode laser technology to remove hair on the upper lip and face, arms and legs, underarms, and bikini area. In fact, this is the same professional-strength technology that dermatologists use.  The laser removes hair by targeting the pigment within the hair follicles, permanently disabling them, which ultimately stops hair growth.

If you’ve ever had laser hair removal treatments at a spa or other location, you know they’re not cheap. Most people need at least a dozen treatments to see lasting results, which can run you hundreds of dollars. And keep in mind, that’s just for one area. Do the math and you can see what it would cost for multiple areas.

How To Use The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X

The Tria hair removal laser is a handheld device that’s straightforward to use, and includes a user-manual with detailed instructions. There are five control levels. It’s recommended to start with the lowest setting to get a feel for how the device works, and to note your individual pain tolerance. Best results will be achieved by using the highest setting.

Choose an area on your body you’d like to work on. It’s recommended to shave the area before treating, but it doesn’t have to be a close shave. Interestingly, some users stated that leaving a little hair growth yielded better results. Apply a numbing gel or use coconut oil. When you turn on the device, you’ll see a red sensor on the bottom. Place that against your targeted area.

Select a setting. Remember to be cautious in the beginning, gradually increasing the setting until you reach the highest level. Do not use the laser on tattoos or moles. Place the tip of the laser against your skin. Wait until you hear two beeps. Lift the laser and repeat the process in 1/4″ increments, overlapping areas of treatment to ensure the entire area has been covered.

Pulse Counter And Charging

The Tria has a pulse counter, along with a chart that tells how many pulses are needed for specific treatment areas. If you use the highest setting, you can plan on getting approximately 600-700 pulses in a 30 to 40 minute time frame. The Tria has over three times more hair-removing energy than any other IPL hair removal device, delivering more energy to disable follicles.

It also differs from other IPL devices in that it is powered internally by a battery, compared to other devices that require a cord while using. Cordless devices are easier to maneuver into hard-to-reach areas, and are far more convenient to use. IPL devices emit bursts of bright light, whereas, the light emission form the Tria is less intense, making it easier on the eyes.

When you’ve completed your treatment, turn off the laser by holding down the power button. Charge the device so it will be ready to go for your next treatment. Charging takes about two hours, with the charge lasting approximately 30 minutes. The degree of pain you feel will depend on your particular pain tolerance. Don’t forget to take advantage of numbing gels. Use the lower settings for more delicate areas.

In the beginning, you’ll want to use the laser a couple of times a week. Once you’re happy with the way things are looking, you can maintain your results by using the laser twice a month. Plan on spending 15 to 20 minutes each session. Larger areas will obviously take more time. Using a home hair removal device will yield faster results than professional treatments because typically a three to four week wait period is required between sessions.

Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X - Buy Vitamin C BannerKey Points

The Tria Laser 4X is kind of like a mini weapon that blasts hair at the follicle. The device is pricey, but when you compare the dollar amount to what you’d pay at a spa, it’s actually a steal.

For a one-time investment, you can use the laser time and again in the convenience of your own home. If you’re self-conscious about hair growing in places you don’t want it to, the Tria may be for you.

It’s purported to work best on light brown to black hair, but light-haired people have also gotten good results. Most less-than favorable reviews mentioned that the customer service could be better, along with complaints about Amazon only offering a 30-day money-back guarantee, whereas, the company itself offers a 60-day return.

Other users stated that the device had changed their lives… What are your thoughts on the Tria Laser? Is it something you’d like to try? Let me know in the comments:)

  1. Hi! Thank you for this review about Tria Laser. Although it seems a bit pricey at first glance (it did to me, I must admit), I actually went and did the math and it’s nothing compared to how much it would cost me if I had the same treatment at my local spa. After doing the math, it’s a no brainer.

    • Hi Henry,

      Yes, the device is pricey, but when you put it into perspective, in terms of what it would cost you for a series of spa treatments, it’s really affordable. I would rather pay a one-time free than recurring fees over time. Plus, you don’t have the required waiting period before treatments. Thanks so much for reading!

  2. Wow, this is a lovely post, it’s full of interesting content and useful tips. The Tria Laser 4X is really nice and I think it’s gonna be the very best option for a friend of mine, Fred, he’s so hairy and he doesn’t like it. He’s already tried many products. all to no avail. 

    I’ll send this post to him and I’m very sure it’ll be of great help to him because this article has explained in detail what The Tria Laser 4X does and how it works. Thanks for posting this article, I really love it.

  3. This is really cool to learn about. I have heard people talk about having a laser hair removal treatment, but I never thought it could be this interesting to learn about. Unlike so many other devices, this device seems really easy to use at home. 

     I would love to get one for myself. How much does it cost? 

    • Hi Dane,

      Thanks for reading my post. I remember years ago when my mom got electrolysis. She did it for what seemed like years. Maybe it wasn’t that long, but I know she did it for quite some time. I would much rather take matters into my own hands and buy a device that I can use from home on my own time schedule. Please check the price on Amazon. I appreciate your comment!

  4. While reading this, I remembered in my early years, my sister and mother made me use an epilator on my feet. I didn’t know what it did and was curious, so I tried it, and it was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. It was very painful, and after the process, the pain was intense. I did it for two hours. This is a laser so it must be better in any way? I hope 😉

    • Hi Stefan,

      I’m sorry to hear about your painful experience. I’m not familiar with the epilator you used, but doing anything for two hours seems extreme. Tria sessions last about 20 minutes and you can start with the lowest setting and gradually build up. It will most definitely be a better experience for you. Thanks for your comment!

  5. Wow, I’ve never heard of such a device, although, I have seen other similar devices for removing unwanted hair. This is the best I’ve heard about and the device itself is beautiful. I like the size, and that’s it’s cordless. 

    Such great qualities all in one device. It’s something everyone should have!

    • Hi Chloe,

      Yes, I agree, everyone should own a Tria. Wouldn’t that be awesome?! It’s got some pretty amazing features, and the fact that it’s cordless is one of the top ones! Thanks so much for reading and commenting!
