Tria has 20% off.
Thinking of buying a home laser hair removal device? The two top choices are the Tria Laser and the Silk’n Flash & Go. Both are quality items that come with money back guarantees, but they have their slight differences. So, when deciding on the Tria v. Flash and Go, read below for more information!
The Tria was the first quality home laser to the market. It may be used on body hair only. I have personally tested it and achieved good results from it. It is sturdy, I have not had to replace the lamp, and I just overall love it. ($395)
The Flash and Go can be used on facial hair as well as body. It takes slightly longer per treatment, but is equally effective and is the more affordable product. It gets great reviews. It will require lamp replacement more often. ($299)
Both products are comfortable to use. The only sensation is a slight heating feeling. There is no pain at all. At the highest setting some think the heating is more intense. I have not personally had any issues at all with the Tria with that.
Keep in mind that both products, because they are lasers, cannot be used on dark skin. The best candidates for permanent hair removal are those with lighter skin and darker hair. Both products include sensors to test whether your skin tone is too dark. Both can be returned if that is the case. In fact, both come with a full money back guarantee.
It typically takes 6 months to a year of regular treatments (normally bi-weekly) to see results. It took me over 9 months. But once you have achieved hair loss it is permanent. Buy using a home device you can save thousands over the cost of having laser hair removal done in a salon.
