Checking In with the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X

The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X is the first (and only, right now) FDA-cleared laser available for home use. It’s also very easy to use. I’ve now been using the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X for several months. As you probably know, I have very fair skin and very dark hair naturally. I’m not very hairy, as the dark hair on my body is limited to my bikini zone, underarms, and from the knees down on my legs. The hair on my arms is very light and the hair on my upper thighs is blonde.

From my understanding of how the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X works, the higher the contrast between your hair and skin, the better the laser will be able to reduce the hair. However, keep in mind that laser hair removal is not permanent. It should provide up with a reduction of up to 70% of the hair. Tria’s website says that if your body hair is blonde, white, grey or red, this laser is not for you. It also says if you have a darker skintone, this laser is not safe for your skin. Darker skintones run a higher risk of skin injury.

The way I use it is by putting the bottom of the device against my leg to allow it to get a reading of my skintone. Then I proceed to use it on the area that I want to see the hair reduced. As I mentioned, I’ve been targeting my underarms and the strays on my boobs. You need to do quite a lot of pulses per area of skin – about 200 pulses under each arm, for each treatment. And it does help to overlap where the laser is pointed on your skin. I also think I wasn’t overlapping it enough the first few times that I used it. Depending on how distracted I am, this takes me about 15-20 minutes, so it’s not much of a time commitment.

I have seen a reduction in the hair under my arms, as well as in the few strays on my boobs that I have. It seems like my hair is growing back more sparsely. However, I’m still stuck using level 1 because my skin is too sensitive to go up to level 2. So I’m going to be using this for a few more months until I get to the desired amount of hair reduction. I wish that I could use the higher levels, because I think I’d see better, faster results. Check out my friend Miranda’s experience with using the laser on her legs!

Overall, I think if you like the idea of using a laser at home and your skin type and hair type is compatible, you will get good results with the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X. You just need to be willing to put the time into using it and follow the instructions. It also helps if you can use the higher settings, which I can’t.

  • These things are always intriguing me… I might have to add this to my list of gift ideas for myself! 😉

    • This is the type of thing that I would buy during a Friends & Family Sale at Nordstrom or Sephora or somewhere where you’re going to get to use a 20% off coupon. That’s how I typically do large purchases.

  • I’ve done laser hair removal at a med spa place, for about 2 years, going once every 2 months. I’m still not completely hair free, but it’s definitely in the 70% range. If I kept going, I think it would be even higher than that. I did underarms, lower legs, and brazilian (talk about an awkward place to to have done! But it makes everything so much easier.). I’m tempted to get this and just be able to do it at home. It would be MUCH cheaper (I spent 3500 on all of the above areas, paid out over the two years at no interest). Does it need to be “recharged” or anything like that?

    One thing I would highly recommend you try is using VERY cold ice packs on the areas you’re going to treat, for at least 5 minutes before you zap, and then for at least a few minutes after you zap. Then apply some aloe gel. I have pretty sensitive skin (but also a high pain tolerance), and though the cold is also slightly uncomfortable, it helped greatly with the stinging sensation during the treatment and the slight swelling afterwards. It ends up almost looking like razor burn on me, when they’re done. Over the next 2 weeks or so, after a treatment, I could almost always detect a difference in the amount of hair that grew back.

    ETA: The underarm area is actually closer to 90%. That area seemed to “take” the best on me.

  • I think I seriously need this. I am a bit scared since I think I also have sensitive skin when it comes to things like lasers, but i totally WANT this!!!! I am super stoked that you are seeing results for sure, anything to make hair grow back less sparse I am instantly in lust with. Thanks for sharing!! xx0

  • How neat! Although, I feel like this is one of those things that I would LOVE to try but then it would sit in my cabinet for MONTHS before I actually had time to try it!
