The TRIA System was developed by the team of scientists that invented the professional technology, the TRIA System is the first safe, FDA-cleared laser hair removal device available for home use. The
TRIA Laser Hair Removal System is an easy, safe and effective way for suitable candidates to obtain clinically proven laser hair reduction in the privacy, comfort, and convenience of their home. The system delivers lasting results, eliminating the need for endless shaving, painful waxing and inconvenient appointments. It leaves skin looking beautiful and sleek, as if the hair was never there!

The TRIA laser works on the principles of selective photothermolysis: beams of laser energy are absorbed by the dark pigment in hair and converted into heat which disables the hair follicle, preventing it from growing new hair. This process is most effective on hairs during the growth stage (anagen phase). Since most hairs cycle through the anagen (active), catagen (transitional) and telogen (resting) phases over a six month period, one treatment a month for 6-8 months is required to achieve complete results.

The TRIA Laser Hair Removal System is available at Nordstrom, leading aesthetic physicians' offices, Bergdorf Goodman, The Studio at Fred Segal, Bliss World, select spas and TRIA Beauty.

Based on national averages, a woman can expect to spend between $3,000 to $10,000 to remove unwanted hair from underarms, bikini line and legs over a 10 year period by using various methods.

The average physician's fee for a series of 3-8 laser treatments can range between $1,050 and $2,800 for each body area. The TRIA Laser Hair Removal System is priced at $795.

IMPORTANT: If your skin is medium brown, dark brown or your hair color is light brown; light, medium or dark blond; red or gray, at this time the TRIA System is not right for you. Lastly, regardless of skin tone, DO NOT use the TRIA System if you are African American, East Indian, Native American or Pacific Islander as skin damage may occur. Because TRIA's laser is activated by darker shades of melanin (color) levels in the hair, lighter hair colors such as light brown; light, medium, or dark blond; red or gray will not absorb enough of the laser's energy to disable the hair follicle.

Currently, the TRIA Laser Hair Removal System is not cleared for use on the face, head, ears or neck, but TRIA Beauty is hard at work for additional research to safely treat these areas - backed by FDA clearance, of course.
