Tria Eye Care Kit

Introducing the new Eye Care Kit from Tria

If you’re noticing your skin under the eyes doesn’t have the smoothness that it used to back in your twenties, you’re in for a real treat! Unfortunately, for most of us in our late 30s and early 40s, we start to notice fine lines and a loss of elasticity under the eye area. There are several reasons for this, and I’ll outline a few below:

  • Lack of sleep, bad diet, stress. We all know beauty sleep is essential, especially for the eyes. Stress can cause lack of sleep, therefore, resulting in dark circles, puffiness, and lines.

  • Loss of collagen. The skin around the eyes is very thin, and when we lose collagen (Starting in your late 20’s, you lose up to 1.5% of collagen every year) the eyes start to look hollowed out.

  • Bad circulation. A buildup of fluid under the eyes can cause them to look darker and puffier. 

To combat these signs of aging under the eyes, Tria has launched the Eye Care Kit! This powerful anti-aging trio combines laser technology with Tria’s youth-boosting copper eye mask and Nourishing Eye Renewal Cream. This kit helps you start rebuilding your collagen naturally, and you’ll start seeing results in as little as two weeks with the Tria SmoothBeauty™ Eye Wrinkle Laser, when used at least five days per week. The Nourishing Eye Renewal Cream soothes skin following laser treatment while replenishing moisture and reducing the appearance of puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles. Top that off with the copper-infused Beauty Boosting Eye Mask that will work while you sleep to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in as little as four weeks. 

If you’re wondering how this small, pocket-sized laser works, keep reading! Clinically proven to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, Tria’s Non-Ablative Fractional Laser stimulates collagen production deep within the skin by sending targeted beams of light where collagen and elastin form. The SmoothBeauty™ Eye Wrinkle Laser is also FDA-cleared, for peace of mind!

Start using the Eye Care Kit, and you’ll start noticing your concealer going on smoother, eyes looking brighter and younger after each use. To see more about this kit, please visit the Eye Care Kit product page for detailed information.

PCOS in women hair growth

PCOS and facial hair growth in women — can it be controlled with laser hair removal?

If you’re like me, you’ve woken up and faced the mirror, only to discover some new facial hair growth on your chin. For women, this can be a moment never to forget, and honestly, quite horrifying. Most of the women that I know who’ve experienced hirsutism, excessive facial hair growth caused by excess male hormones, have resorted to shaving daily, which can be time-consuming, irritating to the skin, and just downright depressing. 

WHAT CAUSES FACIAL HAIR GROWTH IN WOMEN?

Many women with facial hair growth have been diagnosed (or undiagnosed) with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome 1), which affects one out of ten women, according to womenshealth.gov. In short, women with PCOS can experience multiple bubble-like cysts that form on the surface of one or both ovaries. These cysts are eggs that are partially mature but do not release and remain in their follicles. The unfortunate result of this means that the egg cannot become fertilized, making PCOS one of the leading causes of infertility in women. Some of the other PCOS symptoms include infrequent or irregular periods, acne due to excess male hormones, and 50% will develop Type 2 Diabetes before the age of 40. 

CAN YOU TREAT EXCESSIVE HAIR GROWTH WITH LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

The good news is that Tria Beauty’s line of hair removal lasers can help reduce hair growth in women with excess (or unwanted) hair. As we see in the video (posted below) that guest stars customer Amruta Ray from pcos_made_me_do_it on Instagram, she can control the excess hair growth on her chin area with regular use of the Tria 4X Hair Removal Laser. Amruta uses the laser once every two weeks on hair growth areas and has noticed a considerable difference in about five treatments or 2.5 months. Less hair on the chin has made Amruta very happy and more confident in her appearance! 

The 4X laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, just like professional lasers in a clinical setting. The disabled hair begins to fall out, leaving behind more touchable, softer skin. Over time, the laser permanently disables the hair follicles’ ability to regrow hair. It is important to note that women with PCOS will most likely not experience permanent hair loss with the laser due to the excess male hormones in the body. The laser can help manage the hair growth, and the facial areas will need to be treated on an ongoing basis. 

PCOS AWARENESS MONTH IS IN SEPTEMBER

September is PCOS Awareness Month, and we would like to invite women that have had success with our Precision or 4X Laser to talk about your experiences on Instagram Live. Watch our video below to learn more about Amruta’s experience with laser hair removal. 

50% of women go undiagnosed with PCOS, according to US News. If you experience any of the symptoms we mentioned above, consult your gynecologist to request testing.

Tria SmoothBeauty Eye Wrinkle Laser

Anti-aging skincare routine for under eye wrinkles

We all age differently–some of us see the first signs of aging around our mouth or eyes, and some of us seem to wake up suddenly with a face full of lines. I definitely started seeing my first signs of aging under my eyes when I turned 40, and I knew that the car of eye cream I had been using for over 10 years wasn’t going to perform a miracle. I needed something more! When I discovered the SmoothBeauty Eye Wrinkle Laser combined with good skincare products, I noticed those pesky lines that bothered me are now a thing of the past!

Let’s dive into this effective skincare routine that is customized just for the under-eye area!

How does non-ablative laser work under the eyes?

Tria’s Eye Wrinkle Laser uses non-ablative laser technology to help promote collagen production, which aids in smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles (yes, crow’s feet!) under the eyes. This small and mighty laser works by delivering a beam of light that promotes cellular renewal. The laser sensation does feel like a bit of heat and a slight vibration. I prefer to use my laser at night due to the redness that may occur after the treatment. I do treatments for 8 weeks (at least 5 days per week) and then take a 4-week break and do another 8 weeks (then repeat the process).

Within a 2-week period, I noticed the fine lines on the outside of my eye area were basically gone! The smoother area under my eye creates the perfect canvas for applying my concealer and powder, without creasing up or settling in the lines.

The above image is an actual photo from one of Tria’s clinical studies. Clearly, you can see a brighter under eye area with visibly fewer lines and folds under the eye. With the help of the laser, the collagen production that results will fill in the lines and smooth out the area without the use of fillers or Botox, and without making appointments at a clinic.

Skincare routine

To calm redness and to relieve any dryness that may occur after laser treatments under the eyes, Tria has specially formulated skincare products to not only calm and soothe the skin, but to help you maintain your daily anti-aging routine.

Immediately following your nightly laser treatment, our Nourishing Eye Renewal Cream will soothe redness and cool down the area before you sleep. This cream replenishes moisture and reduces the appearance of puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles. It is specially formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Ginger Extract to help soothe and hydrate laser-treated skin, along with Retinol to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Bonus: the metal applicator helps calm and cool skin after laser treatment.

To really rake in the benefits of your laser, the use of our Nuvesse Tired Eyes, Puffiness and Dark Circles Regimen Kit will give your eyes an extra boost of anti-aging power if used once per week. This eye mask kit also contains a serum roller that you may use daily under your eye cream treatment. The eye masks contain vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and camellia seed oil significantly increase hydration brightening the look of dark circles and diminishing the look of fine lines and puffy eyes. These work great right before a special event and help concealer look smoother.

Simple steps to dazzling eyes

To recap the steps to amazing, younger-looking eyes here are the three steps you need to take!

  1. Use the SmoothBeauty Eye Wrinkle Laser at night on clean and dry skin.
  2. Apply the Tria Nourishing Eye Renewal Cream following the treatment.
  3. In the AM, apply the Nuvesse serum roller under the eyes and pat your eye cream on top. Be sure to use the Nuvesse eye masks once per week and use the serum in the AM daily!

How to get the most from your Tria 4X Hair Removal Laser

Hearing about an at-home hair removal laser for the first time could sound too good to be true. With so many beauty devices claiming to do everything from plumping your lips to reducing cellulite, it’s hard to decide where to direct your attention! If you’re in the market for a laser hair removal device at the fraction of the cost at a clinic, then you’ve come to the right place. Tria has done extensive clinical research on their hair removal laser devices like the 4X and Precision lasers, and they are all FDA-cleared.

Sound good so far? Keep reading to find out how to take care of your hair removal laser once you’ve made the purchase.

Keep it clean

The laser window of your Tria laser needs to be cleaned before every use with an alcohol wipe or alcohol on a cotton round. Oils from the body or residue from our Phytograph Soothing Gel can block the laser light from penetrating through the glass if the window is dirty.

Tria 4X Hair Removal Laser

Juice the battery

There is an internal lithium battery housed inside of both the Precision and 4X hair removal lasers. This means there are no cords plugged into the wall while you are using the device, but you will need to charge it up when the battery gets low. Make sure you fully charge your Tria laser before using it to make sure you have enough power to get through your session. Also, it is very important that you do not store your Tria laser away in the closet for a few years. The battery will drain, and you might not be able to turn it on again! Make sure you charge your devices at least once every three months to keep that battery active!

Watch customer and influencer reviews on the Tria 4X on YouTube!

Overlapping pattern

A useful tip when using your device is to make sure you get EVERY hair follicle. An easy way to do that is to overlap your treatment pattern. As you lift your device to move onto the next treatment area, don’t jump far ahead. Move it very slightly into the next direction, overlapping the section you just treated. This will ensure you don’t miss any spots!

Soothing gel

If you feel that your treatments are a little too “zappy”, you can use the Phytograph Soothing Gel to help soothe the treatment areas beforehand. You will have to purchase this gel at the same time that you buy your laser, so keep that in mind!

Don’t miss a treatment

Consistency is key when using your hair removal laser. Tria recommends using the laser once every two weeks until the hair has stopped growing. Some customers have reported hair loss after three treatments, some take twelve. Don’t waste your time doing treatments more frequently than every two weeks; your hair growth cycle will affect each hair on your body, and every hair is in a different phase! You’ll notice that there are hairs that will not grow back, but others will still persist after treatments. Those growing hairs will eventually cease to grow back, but they possibly will keep popping up until they are treated during a certain growth phase. Set a calendar reminder so that you won’t miss a treatment!

Laser hair removal summer safety tips

Laser Hair Removal Summer Tips

Waiting all year for the glory of the summer sun is definitely a highlight for those finally coming out of quarantine. While some of us are still waiting for our community pools and beaches to open, there are a lot of people wondering how to tame hair growth before stepping out in their short shorts. There are many customers coming to us saying they’ve been waiting forever to get into a laser hair removal clinic, and turned to Tria Beauty for their at-home hair removal needs while on lockdown. (Thank you!) Now that the sun has made its appearance, there are a few tidbits you should know about before starting your laser hair removal journey for the summer.

We’ve wrangled some handy guidelines from our wonderful customer care team here at Tria as well as tips from the experts at Boomboombrowbar.com.

TIP #1 – Minimize or avoid sun exposure

As we all know, sun exposure makes your skin more sensitive, especially during the summer months. When you are frolicking about on the beaches in Hawaii, your skin will become more sensitive to heat than ever–think about that time when you had a sunburn and took a hot shower–ouch!! Since hair removal lasers use heat, the treatment will not only sting, but it may cause burns and even scarring. Not worth the risk! Avoid the sun at least 24 to 48 hours before and after sun exposure, and definitely do not treat any areas with a sunburn.

Keep in mind that the areas that could be the most sensitive to the sun are the face, arms, hands, feet, and legs. For men that worship the sun, that could possibly be the chest and back area.

To help minimize sun exposure, always wear sunscreen! Use a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen that shields you from both UVB and UVA rays. To keep your skin hydrated while using your laser, use the pre-treatment Soothing Gel, available in the 4X and Precision Laser Deluxe Kits.

TIP #2 – Avoid tanning

In order to effectively use our at-home hair removal lasers, there needs to be contrast between your skin tone and the body hair in order for the laser to target the melanin in the hair. Tanning the skin, whether you are doing sunless self-tanner, spray tanning, tanning beds, or tanning with the natural sun, your skin tone may become darker than your body hair color.

To find see if you are a candidate for at-home laser hair removal with Tria, you can scroll down on this page to see our skin tone and body hair color chart.

TIP #3 – Use caution when exfoliating

Because laser hair removal will cause your pores to open, you want to let your skin heal for at least 48 hours. Try to avoid the sauna, jacuzzi, swimming pool, or ocean swimming. You also want to avoid exfoliating your skin for about 5 days following your treatment. No loofah or scrubby sponges, salt or sugar scrubs for at least 5 days.
