Hair Removal for Fair Hair: Why It Works

Hair Removal for Fair Hair: Why It Works

Summer is here which means shaving season is here! One thing we can agree on is that shaving is not one of our favorite activities…at all. As fair hair beauties, we always hear ‘“You can’t even see your hair, it’s so light!” but we still know it’s there and we still want it gone! So what do we do? We can’t just walk through the breezy summer with hairy legs!! Enter: Dual Wave Technology (also known as Intense Pulsed Light + Radio Frequency).


Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) + Radio Frequency (RF) Technology

What makes this technology different? How do iluminage devices capture this energy for effective hair removal for fair hair beauties?!

This groundbreaking technology uses two separate energies. Intense pulsed light (IPL) targets and warms the melanin in hair follicles. Once follicles are warmed up, it applies radio frequency pulses (RF). RF seeks out these warmed follicles and delivers a second round of growth reducing energy. The combination of IPL and RF can deliver permanent hair removal for the widest variety of hair colors – including light/fair – with impressive results in as little as 7 weeks.

The synergy of IPL and RF energies used together means that hair follicles get a double dose of hair removal energy. Because both of these methods are put to use simultaneously during the hair removal process, the overall energy level required is low enough to work safely and effectively for those with fair hair.

Long Lasting Hair Removal for Fair Hair

The following hair removal process will get you on the road toward trading in your fair hair for silky smooth skin. Although you may quickly notice hair reduction, it’s important to stick with the treatments in order to achieve long-term results.

In order to obtain the longest lasting and most successful results, we recommend that fair-haired individuals begin the hair removal process by first epilating or waxing the area you wish to treat. If you are an individual with fair hair, it’s important that you complete this step as it significantly increases the effectiveness hair removal treatments.

How Does the Epilation Process Work for Fair Hair Removal?

  1. Epilate or shave
  2. Power up the device and select an energy level.; it is recommended that you start out on the lowest power setting
  3. Continuously move the device over the area that you wish to remove hair from
  4. Continue for 2 to 10 minutes depending on the time span recommended for the specific area

It’s as simple as that; keep up the good work and prepare to say “Farewell ,” to your fair hair in unwanted places.Try our iluminage hair removal technologies worry free with our 60-day money back guarantee.

Hair Removal For Red Hair: Why It Works

If you have red hair, you may be a bit skeptical about the effectiveness of hair removal technologies. As a redhead, chances are you’ve endured some pain or frustration in your previous attempts at hair removal. Shaving is time consuming, and waxing can be downright painful. After all, past innovations in hair removal technology haven’t left you any closer to the smooth skin that you desire! So, why don’t most hair removal solutions work for you? Existing methods of hair removal work by targeting and warming the melanin (what gives your hair color!) found in hair follicles, but as someone with red hair, your follicles don’t contain enough melanin for most hair removal solutions to work correctly! Good news, this new innovation in hair removal is effective and safe for you to use!

How Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) + Radio Frequency (RF) Technology Works

What makes this technology different? How does iluminage capture this energy for effective hair removal for redheads?! Groundbreaking technology uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target and warm the melanin in hair follicles. Once follicles are warmed up, it applies radio frequency pulses (RF). RF seeks out these warmed follicles and delivers a second round of growth reducing energy. The combination of IPL and RF can deliver permanent hair removal for the widest variety of hair colors – including red – with impressive results in as little as 7 weeks.

The Removal Process

Permanent hair reduction for red hair can be just weeks away for you! Here’s a quick look at the simple, easy and painless removal process:

In order to achieve the best results possible, it’s recommended that you either wax or epilate the area that you wish to treat prior to using.

  1. Select an energy level
  2. Press the activation button
  3. Hold the applicator against your skin
  4. Slide the device to a new area after each visible flash of light
  5. Continue treatment for 2 to 10 minutes depending on the area of the body that you’re focusing on

The treatments are simple, and the results are safe and clinically confirmed. The nice thing about using the iluminage is that you only treat once a week for the first 7 weeks; then, typically switch to monthly maintenance after that. Plus, treatments may take as little as 2 minutes to complete! Even if you’re removing hair from multiple areas of your body, the overall time commitment is far less than shaving every couple of days – and the results last much longer.

Smooth Skin Is Always In

5 Ways to Prepare Your Skin + Body for Summer

Ladies and gents, the warm, sunny, summer season is right around the corner! It will be here before we know it…which means we need to start summer skin prep, like yesterday. Avoid the panic that sets in around early May when you realize your dry winter skin has been left to fend for itself. Take a deep breath! We’re here to help.


This summer, show off your glowing skin you wish you always had. But how?! We want you to walk, stand, dance, and live with confidence in your skin. Let’s do this.


ONE: Exfoliate

Anyone who knows anything about skin care knows that exfoliating is the holy grail for fine, smooth, happy skin. Exfoliating should be done all year round, but should especially be a part of your routine in the summer. The humidity + sweating + the heat provide the perfect ground for clogged pores, ingrown hairs, uneven tones and just overall blah-ness. Exfoliating helps with all of these by working off the layer of dry skin that builds up over the winter.  For the body, aim to find a scrub with coarse particles that will assist is sloughing off the skin. For the face, aim for a cleansing brush or a gentle micro-bead exfoliant! Either way, you’ll be feeling fresh and smooth!!


TWO: Reconsider How You’re Removing Body Hair

We STRONGLY believe in hair removal, especially because we know how annoying, tedious, and *extra* continuous shaving, waxing and plucking can be. If you are reading this then I want you to think, “Hmmm, if I shave my legs, armpits and bikini line twice per week in the summer months how many times is that”. We don’t have to be mathematicians to understand that we spend so much of our precious time shaving. Unless you want to walk out the door looking like Edward Scissorhands hands shaved your legs, then you understand that you must take.your.time. Which is great in theory but it’s 2018 and we barely have time to eat breakfast let alone shave our legs!


Lucky for all, there is a beautiful and effective hair removal device, designed to:


  1. Save you time
  2. Protect your skin
  3. Leave your permanently hair-free.


Yes, you read that correctly. Permanently hair-free. The Tria Beauty Hair Removal Laser 4X is the absolute best way to remove your unwanted body hair. It’s the ONLY way we remove our hair.


THREE: Always Have Safe, Effective Sunscreen

How many times have you arrived at the beach and realized you forgot your sunscreen? What happens next? You either A: Say, “Oh I should be fine without it” or B: “Can I borrow yours?” We want to avoid both of those scenarios! Firstly, you ALWAYS need sunscreen and secondly, if you’re borrowing someone’s, you can’t totally be sure what is in it. We recommend any of these for your face and these for your body to make sure you’re putting the best of the best on your bod.


FOUR: Clear Up Body Acne

We want you to have clear skin all over. After being covered up in these winter months, it’s time to shed the layers. This can be scary for some people who struggle with body acne. We’ve all be there!! For anything on your face, the Tria Positively Clear 3-Step Acne Solution is the way to go. You can even use it on areas like your shoulders that are easier to reach too! It combines blue light that feels gentle on your skin but works on your acne. For your body, look for body washes that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Avoid the washes that smell delicious — unfortunately the added fragrances can flare up body acne.


FIVE: Dont Forget About Your Precious Feet!!

Last but not least your feet! You always want to put your best foot forward 🙂 Your feet have also been covered all winter so now is the time to treat them right! If you’ve been rocking a half-decent winter pedicure, remove all the polish and let your toenails *breathe*. You’re more likely to have them covered in polish all summer long so take these next few weeks to let them go au naturale. Instead focus on your cuticles, your heels and the other delicate skin on your feet. Exfoliating your feet in the shower is a quick, easy way to remove the dead skin while your skin is moist.


Happy Skin, Happy Summer!

Best Advice We've Ever Heard!

The Best Advice We’ve Ever Heard

Celebrating Women’s History Month with The Best Female Advice We’ve Ever Heard

(And Can Actually Understand)


This month we are celebrating women everywhere. It is the month where we honor the incredible history of the millions of women who have graced this earth from the beginning. In true Tria fashion, we want to share our favorite advice from none other than our #TriaTribe of kick ass women. As human beings, we experience so much. As women, we experience so much. As mothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, bridesmaids, best friends, girlfriends and #ladybosses we take on the world with all it has to offer, and give back just as much as we get.

So, our monthly contribution this month is to share a compilation of the best advice we’ve ever heard. And because we love you all so much, we even broke it down by categories. Next time you’re feeling lost, take a quick peek back at this post to put you back on track. We wish we could expand each of these with the ever-so-insightful anecdotes from our female contributors but alss that will be saved for another post. So , without further ado…


The Best Advice We’ve Ever Heard For…Travel:

If you absolutely love the thrill & passion of adventure, pause here and read the this advice. If travel doesn’t set your soul on fire, feel free to skip ahead.


  • Always carry ginger candies, dried ginger roots, or anything ginger. Ginger is used to treat stomach aches and nausea which are common with travel, especially in foreign countries!
  • Know your airport rules. 3 – 1- 1
    • 3 oz bottles, in 1 clear bag, and only 1 clear bag per person. Airport security is the last thing you want to mess with when trying to make that flight!
  • Carry on your bag when possible; if not, bring to gate for them to check for free!
  • Always buy travel insurance. Rule of thumb: If you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel.


The Best Advice We’ve Ever Heard For…Marriage:

This one could probably be an entire book but we’ll recap for you.

  • Always answer the phone when your husband or wife is calling. Easy enough!
  • Budget time & money for one-on-one date night. This may seem like a no-brainer but you may be surprised how often date night is missed.
  • Laugh, Laugh some more, and then laugh again.
  • You are not in a competition with your spouse (no matter how competitive you are!)
  • Sung in an Aretha Franklin voice: ‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T’. You give respect, you get respect.
  • Said in a 5th grade middle school voice “Secrets secrets are no fun, unless they’re shared with everyone”. Keeping secrets is never a good thing and usually leads to more consequent bad things.


The Best Advice We’ve Ever Heard For…Life:

  • Avoid decisions when you’re angry and avoid promises when you’re happy.
  • Happiness is  a choice and everything else is a matter of perspective.
  • Choose your friends wisely. You are a direct representation of the 5 people you hang out with the most.
  • Seek to connect with others, not to impress.


The Best Advice We’ve Ever Heard For…Health/Diet:

  • Water is the most important. We should say this one again. Water is the elixir of life and even if you think you’re drinking enough, chances are you need more!
  • Nutrients vs. Calories. Seek foods that are nutritious and delicious. So often ladies are counting their calories. To put in perspective, a fruit smoothie with protein filled almond milk, nutrient dense kale, and fiber filled chia seeds could easily be 300 calories and keep you full and energized for hours. A medium french fries from McDonald’s is 380 calories.
  • Sleeping more helps you stay slim!
  • Breakfast is the most IMPORTANT meal of the day. Make it a priority to eat something other than you morning cup o’joe!


All of these tidbits are absolutely marvelous and we are thankful to be graced with this solid advice. As women we are constantly evolving and growing to be even more capable of beautifully handling everything life throws at us. At Tria, we specialize in working hard to make beautiful women look and feel their best, but it is the true support from females worldwide that make this world a better place. Cheers to Women’s History Month and our #TriaTribe!
