When shopping for a potentially life-altering hair removal device, it can be challenging to make the right choice for you. But, what should be suitable for everyone is a device that is easy to use and has features that make it more convenient. The Tria 4X Hair Removal Laser has unique features among all other hair removal device brands, and I am here to show you what those are! Here are the top 5 features that you need to know:
The 4X Hair Removal Laser is Cordless
One of my favorite features of the 4X is that it is cordless. It seems simple enough, but most hair removal devices on the market are corded, which means you do not have the freedom to use them wherever you want. During one of my Facebook Live events, my guest was using her Tria 4X outdoors to treat the hair on her legs, and it looked like a very relaxing experience! I have customers reporting to me that they’ve used our lasers on planes to save time! If you remember corded telephones, then you know how annoying it is to be stuck against the wall talking to your BFF. Don’t forget that because the device is cordless, the internal rechargeable battery needs some TLC to keep it running smoothly. Just be sure not to store the device in your closet for long periods and charge it once at least every three months.
The LED Screen is Your Friend
I don’t know about you, but I always prefer a screen on a device that allows me to see important information such as battery life. When you turn the 4X Laser on, you can see how much battery power is left, the power level, and how many ‘shots fired’ you have completed during your session. The latter is essential to me to track progress. For instance, if I am doing my legs and I use 300 zaps one month, and the next month I use 200, that means I have less hair to zap! This is usually a good indicator to let you know that your treatments are working!
Laser Won’t Unlock Unless it’s Safe
Safety is a priority at Tria–did you know our lasers are FDA-Cleared? In the early 2000s, Tria conducted tests to ensure that the laser was safe for use at home and which body zones were the safest to treat. A feature was introduced to ensure that the laser was safe to use on a particular area utilizing a little red light on the bottom of the device. For instance, I had a customer tell me that after a summer vacation of tanning on the beach, her Tria 4X device would not unlock. This is because if your skin tone is darker than the light brown shade shown on the left chart, the laser will not detect the hair follicle, and there is a risk of burn.
Try to remember that if you have tanned during the summer or used a self-tanner, utilize the safety unlocking feature to ensure that the areas you are treating are safe. I will simply turn off the device and back on again when moving on to another area of my body and have the device test the area I am about to treat.
Tria’s Lasers Are True Diode Lasers
Here’s one that creates mass confusion–are Tria’s lasers IPL or laser technology? There is an entire blog post about What is the difference between Laser Hair Removal and IPL? Simply said: IPL is a big, broad flash of light (hence why you need to wear annoying goggles during treatments), and it is not as targeted as a diode laser. Don’t let the word ‘laser’ fool you when you see ads on YouTube and Google when the device advertised is really just IPL. Tria’s 4X laser delivers 3 times more energy than IPL, resulting in more permanent hair removal. Facts.
Five Power Levels for Comfort
It is true that the higher the power level setting is set on the 4X, the faster the results will be. For a lot of us, we need to power down a bit in order to feel comfortable. Personally, I can handle level 3 on my face, but I can power up to 5 for other areas, such as my legs. The fact that you can choose your power level to accommodate certain body parts is wonderful! You have 5 levels to choose from on the 4X, and you can definitely use a level 1 to start out with and work your way up as you start losing hair or get used to the sensation. The denser the hair is in a particular area, the more you will feel the power! Always start out with level 1 when treating an area you haven’t treated before to see how it feels, then work your way up.
