Are you looking for a permanent solution for unwanted dark hairs on your face, neck or underarms?
Are other hair removal products just not working?
Is your skin always irritated, bumpy and prickly instead of hairless-ly silky smooth?
Then the Tria Beauty Precision Hair Removal Laser could be the perfect product for you!
The Tria Precision is affordable, compact and convenient at home laser hair removal device that is excellent at targeting small areas. Utilizing the same diode laser technology as its big sister device, the heavy duty Tria Laser 4X, the Tria Precision is half the price.
The Tria Precision is recommended by 9/10 dermatologists and if you use it as it is intended, it’s a triple threat: safe, affordable and effective.
Who is this product for?
Beauty conscious people
Who isn’t embarrassed by unwanted body hair, or botched attempts to hide it? The Tria Precision is for people with an eye for detail that want a permanent solution.
Tria devices utilize diode laser technology, targeting the melanin in a hair follicle’s root. The laser penetrates the skin and disables the root (without damaging the surrounding skin) which will later fall out for good.
People on a budget
Professional or clinical hair removal is expensive! Monthly waxing? Expensive! Exactly how much do you spend on razors, creams, waxing, etc. per month? Per year? Probably waaaaaay too much. The Tria Precision is a one-time investment that will pay for itself over and over again (check the price here).
People with light to medium skin tones
Unfortunately for some of us, the Tria laser diode technology targets the melanin in dark hairs in contrast with the skin — so if your skin and hair are close to the same color, this product isn’t safe for you.
Tria products work best on fair to medium skin tones with brown to black hair. In addition, it does not work well on blonde, grey, white or light red hair regardless of skin tone. Also, any dark skin spots, tattoos or beauty marks must also be avoided during treatment.
If you’re not sure how your skin tone falls on the Tria spectrum, check out this graph on the official Tria website or seek the advice of a licensed dermatologist.
People targeting small, delicate areas
Firstly, this product is designed to work on small areas. If you want to tackle your legs or back, you’ll have to recharge the device repeatedly and it may not be able to handle the workload.
Secondly, some men have reported that their beard hairs are too dense for the Tria Precision; although the majority of women reviewers have reported that this device is effective for treating their bikini lines.
So if you’re a man with a thick beard or have a large area you’d like treat, you may want to consider upgrading to the Tria Laser 4X, the more robust older sister of the Tria Precision.
Features and benefits
Easy to Use & Effective
This device is operated by one simple button and offers three laser energy settings.
First, simply clean, shave and dry the area you’d like to treat. Second, apply the Tria Precision device, push the button and let the Tria laser disable the hair follicle. Third, move the Tria Precision to the section small target area and repeat.
Tria recommends using the device as instructed every two weeks, so you’ll have to use the device more than once in the same area. The treated unwanted hair will thin out over time and eventually not return at all, leading to permanent hair loss. After eight treatments (16 weeks) the Tria Precision should work it’s magic, rendering your hairless in the areas you targeted.
Unlike some products, customers report that the Tria Precision is relatively painless to use. It should not irritate your skin and is gentle enough during the application for those of us particularly averse to pain.
The Tria Precision will fit in the palm of your hand. It is very light weight, portable and discreet.
This device is cordless so you can easily use it on the go or at home.
The Tria Precision is rechargeable — no AA’s needed! For every two hours’ charge, the device will work for a 15 to 20 minute treatment, depending on what laser energy strength setting you select.
What We Like
- It’s rechargeable and can be used repeatedly.
What We Don’t Like
- It’s only good for targeting small areas and doesn’t hold a charge for very long.
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Question: How long do I need to charge the device?
Answer: The Tria Precision needs to be charged for two hours before using. When fully charged, the device can be used for 15-20 minutes depending on which laser energy setting you select. Otherwise, you’ll have to recharge it to continue treatment.
Question: Do I need to use gel or lotion afterwards?
Answer: Most users reported that the Tria Precision is gentle enough that they didn’t develop a rash or any irritation. However, if your skin is very sensitive then it may be a good idea to follow up with a gel. When in doubt, please consult a dermatologist.
Question: How often will I need to use it for best results?
Answer: The Tria Precision should be used once every two weeks. If used as directed the targeted areas should no longer need treatments after about three to four months.
Question: Is this product good for people with dark skin tones?
Answer: Unfortunately, no. This product is not designed for people with dark or medium-dark skin tones. Also, if your target areas include birthmarks, moles, tattoos or dark patches, these areas are not suitable for treatment no matter what color the unwanted hair is.
Question: Will this product scar or mark my skin?
Answer: No, the Tria Precision, if used correctly, will not scar, mark or burn your skin.
In conclusion, the Tria Precision Hair Removal Laser is an affordable solution for getting rid of unwanted hair in small areas for good. It’s ideal for people with fair complexions and fine dark hair. If this describes you, then you’re in luck!
If this doesn’t describe you — keep in mind that although the Tria Precision utilizes excellent laser technology, this device is not the strongest on the market and won’t be able to handle the thickest unwanted hairs, or large areas. But don’t worry, there are lots of other options out there for you. Read about them in our 2020 Buyers Guide of the Best At-Home Laser Hair Removal Devices and find the product that’s right for you.
