Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X

9 reasons why your Tria 4X Hair Removal Laser doesn’t work

Did you know that your hair has to be in a specific growth stage in order for laser hair removal to work? There are several reasons why you could be seeing hair growth after using the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X, and I will break down those reasons for you below! Scroll down a bit to watch the full video.

#1: Your body hair color is too light

The hair removal laser’s heat source is attracted to the pigment in the hair. The hair that you want to remove has to be dark enough for the laser to find your hair’s pigment and will work on light brown to black hair. Unfortunately, Blonde, red, white, and grey hair does not have enough pigment to attract the laser’s heat. If your device unlocks, but you do not feel the heat on level 5 treatments, your hair may be too light for the device.

#2: The laser’s treatment window is dirty

If your treatment window is not cleaned after every use, it can build up a film on the surface of oil, skin cells, or treatment gels. If your window has a build-up of gunk, the laser cannot effectively penetrate through the window. Use an alcohol wipe before every use to make sure the laser can sufficiently penetrate through the treatment window.

#3: Your treatment power level is too low

The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X is effective at all treatment levels. The five settings (or three settings if you are using the Precision Laser) are five different levels of intensity. Using a lower intensity means that the treatment will work slower, but may be more comfortable to some users.

We recommend that you start at a low treatment level (1 or 2) and then increase by one treatment level at a time until you’ve reached the highest treatment level comfortable to you. The higher the treatment level, the faster the results.

#4: You are not overlapping your treatment pattern

By overlapping your pattern while treating with the laser, you are making sure to treat every hair, during every treatment. If you move the laser over an inch at a time, you are missing hairs during your treatments.

#5: You are not shaving before treatments

It is very important that you shave your treatment area the night before or a few hours before treating with the hair removal laser. Use a fresh razor to ensure the hair is flat on the surface of the skin. Do not wax or pluck the hairs, do not use an epilator or hair removal creams as the hair will not be flat at the surface of the skin.

#6: You’re skipping treatments

In order for laser hair removal to work, you need to treat at a specific hair growth cycle called Anagen, known as the growth phase. Each hair on your body is at a different growth stage, so it will take at least 6-8 treatments in order to catch all of the hairs in the Anagen phase. Since you do not know what cycle you’re in at the time of treatment, you will have to make sure not to skip ANY treatments. You have to treat your skin with your laser once every two weeks. Mark your calendars!

#7: You are not giving the hair removal process enough time

As I stated in #5, you will need to treat all of the hairs during the Anagen hair growth phase for laser hair removal to be effective. This process can take up to six months for some people. You will also need to be prepared do to touch-ups as some hairs may have been skipped during treatments. Some customers report to me that they see results after three treatments, and some say it takes 8-9 sessions. Patience is key!

#8: You may have biological factors that influence your results

If you have PCOS (in women only) or other hormonal imbalances, there is a chance that this is the reason why you are not seeing permanent results. We have many customers with PCOS that tell me that the 4X is a godsend in controlling facial hair, but it will not be permanent. Menopause can also cause a hormonal imbalance, and it is safe to treat during this stage in life, but we do not recommend our laser for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

#9: Your device needs troubleshooting

If you are seeing an error message or your device isn’t turning on, you will need to turn to page 21 in your Tria 4X manual for help. If the tips in the manual are not helping you troubleshoot your device, be sure to have your serial number ready (on the bottom of your device) and your order information.

If you’ve stored your device away for a long period of time, which we do NOT recommend, you may need to try the reset method to start up your device. Be sure to charge your device at least once every three months to avoid battery drainage. This method is not guaranteed to work, but it has worked fantastic for many customers.

To reset your device:

1. Plug your device in for 24 hours.
2. Take the cord, while leaving the device plugged in the wall, and plug it in and out 5 times in a row, without turning the device on.
3. After the 5th time turn on your device, then put it right back on the charger for 2 hours. After charging for 2 hours turn on the device and see if it works normally.

If you still need assistance, you can contact our Customer Care team and they will be happy to walk you through your issues.

Best legs of your life

How to get the smoothest legs of your life

With summer on the horizon, we’re sure you’ve thought about how you will be shifting your seasonal wardrobe to accommodate for warmer weather. Of course, this means showing more skin! Showing more skin also means, for some of us, shaving daily–and that can be quite tedious especially if you are on vacation. What if you didn’t have to worry about touching another razor again? Wouldn’t that be liberating? Having the freedom to bare our legs without the worry of razor burn or ingrown hairs sounds like paradise! We’re going to show you a couple of products that will make this summer’s legs the best of your life!

EXFOLIATE YOUR LEGS

Cactus Brush from The Body Shop
We wish we would have learned of this product earlier! The Body Shop’s Cactus Long Handle Body Brush ($15) can be used to dry brush the body or use wet with your favorite shower gel. Using this brush is invigorating and exfoliating, and it also unclogs pores! If the brush seems too harsh, The Body Shop also offers many other exfoliating options: The Body Polisher nylon towel ($5) and the 100% Hemp Body Mitt ($10) is just a few more options.

If you are not into exfoliating accessories, or you have sensitive skin, you might love a fruit enzyme peel. The Bliss Jelly Glow Peel ($12) is a non-abrasive exfoliator that uses plant-based fibers to roll off dead skin. You can see the unwanted skin gently roll off your legs–without scrubbing or using any force. It’s perfect on the face, too!

PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL

Tria 4X Hair Removal Laser
Next, let’s worry about getting rid of your cactus legs–for good! Laser hair removal can cost several thousands of dollars if you opt to have it done at a laser clinic. If you’re a celebrity, disposable income might not be an issue for you, but if you are like the rest of us, we yearn for some affordable options. Thankfully, Tria Beauty’s Hair Removal Laser 4X ($449) is just the thing to evict those unwanted hairs from the legs and body. At a fraction of the cost that a clinic charges for hair removal, the 4X is the first and only FDA-approved device for use at home, and is backed by a 60-day money back guarantee.

In a recent article from Marie Claire, Rachel Nazarian, M.D., a dermatologist at the Schweiger Dermatology Group, gives us a valuable preparation tip before using the Tria 4X: “As with all laser hair removal devices, I recommend working with clean, freshly shaven skin. Make sure that you aren’t able to see hair above skin level,” Dr. Nazarian says. Yes! It is completely important to start off will clean, freshly shaven legs before performing your laser treatments. Also, make sure the treatment window is free of any debris that would block the laser light. You can clean the window with an alcohol-based wipe to ensure it’s ready for use.

BEST SELF TANNERS FOR THE LEGS

Best Self Tanners of 2019
Showing off your legs like the beach babe that you are is beautiful–but some of us need a little assistance with our summer glow. A self-tanner can give the legs a nice bronze slimming effect without harmful UV rays and sun damage. You do need to try a spot test to make sure that the color you choose is right for your skin tone, and that you don’t end up an unsightly shade of orange.

The St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Mousse ($42 for 8 oz.) paired with an applicator mitt is your best bet for a long-lasting tan that doesn’t have that weird self-tanner smell. The tinted mousse is definitely not streaky, so you can confidently apply a few moments before heading out.

For tanning on-the-go, Dr. Dennis Gross delivers self-tanning power to the palm of your hand with the Alpha Beta Glow Peel Self-Tanner for the Body ($45). This tan towel firms and exfoliates the skin as you wear it–a total added bonus to the amazing tan you will get!

If you don’t want to go the gradual self-tanner route, there are several “one night only” spray-on bronzers that will give your legs a moment to glow. To give some instant glam to your gams, the HAMPTON SUN Airbrush Bronzing Mist ($42) is a fine mist spray that you wash easily wash off with soap and water.

MOISTURIZER YOUR LEGS WILL LOVE

Bronzed Legs
It’s important to keep your skin and legs hydrated, especially if you want them looking and feeling their best. Applying these lotions to your legs will not only keep your self-tanner going strong, but will combat dry and flaky skin as well. A great overall body lotion is Hempz Original Herbal Body Moisturizer ($11 for 17 oz.) with a delicious banana scent to boot! It nourishes dry, scaly legs with shea butter and ginseng, along with crucial antioxidants vitamins A, C, and E.

To benefit from wonderful ingredients like Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí Oil and anti-aging Coconut Oil, and a bit of shimmer, you need the Sol De Janeiro Glowmotions ($35) illuminating skin oil. The shimmer oil will give your legs a slimming effect if concentrated on the middle bone area with an added bonus of luxurious moisture.

To moisturize without a slick feeling on your body, the Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer ($7) is an awesome drugstore find that is formulated for use right after you step out of the shower. This product ranks high on Amazon.com and has received multiple Allure Best of Beauty Awards. There are five different formulas to choose from, depending on what type of skin issue you need to address.

Hopefully, you’ve learned a lot from this guide all about beautifying your legs for the summer! Stay tuned this season for more summer beauty tips!
