Rated 1 out of 5 by frillydonkey Painful!
I'll give anything a try for hair removal but this is really, really painful no matter what setting I used it on. Will be sticking to waxing which is bareable! Returned for refund.

I wrote a review when I bought this and had a delay activating it. It did work on the Monday so I think the online activation may not work at weekends.
I have had weekly electrolysis on my face for over ten years. I have had a series of laser treatments in a salon twice and bought a Boots laser device in the past. In my experience all these things help reduce the thickness and darkness of hairs while you use them but when you stop the hairs just come back. I think the Tria is in a similar vein. It has reduced hairs, is painless and easy to use and it makes me feel I am doing something rather than nothing. In comparison to salon treatments it works out good value. So although I don't think this or anything else offers a miracle 'cure' I do think it is worth purchasing as it certainly helps.

I returned this item as I was afraid of missing the return deadline. I cannot honestly say it would not work with long term use but I honestly didn't see enough of a difference in the reduction of hair or the texture of the regrowth over a 10 week period to make me keep the product. I think the fact that it will eventually run out of light pulses makes it a very expensive purchase if it does achieve the desired result in the lifetime of one Tria. I think you would be on your second or third Tria before you achieved the permanent hair removal promised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chella Love it but the jury is out.
I ordered this last time it was on TSV, It arrived quickly and I was excited to get started. I have been using this on my armpits and face religiously every 2 weeks since the end of May. So far I have noticed a slight improvement on my face, the hairs are becoming lighter and I sure there are less. My armpits however seem to be taking longer, I find myself looking carefully and I think the hairs are beginning to appear finer and paler. I gave the Tria 4 stars because I'm not noticing much difference with my armpit hair, however I'm confident I will get results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Capri1 FANTASTIC!!, a hair removal product that works
I have waited until the end of the 90 day money back guarantee before making my review. Having had thick black facial hair for around the last 20 years and tried other laser products and the NoNo without any success I decided to try the Tria because it had a 90 day money back guarantee and I could return it if it didn't work. I was also desperate. The easy payments also made it possible as I could not have paid all at once.
I cannot tell you how happy I am to be able to get up every morning and not have to sand down the hairs; and cover the all day 5 o'clock shadow with make up, sometimes to no avail.
This product has truly changed my daily life and confidence, if you have read any of my previous reviews you will know I don't wax lyrical about products. On this occasion I really wanted anyone who may have similar problems to mine to know this product works, it is a considered purchase but is so worth it.
I followed the instructions, used the lower power setting (3) for several weeks only moving up to (4) and occasionally (5) at around the 6th treatment as I did find the sensation a bit uncomfortable. In the first few treatments/ weeks some of the black hairs disappeared, some came back finer and some came back thick and white. There is no need to panic as I did, I pulled them out and they didn't reappear.
Technically I could have returned this product as all of my problematic facial hairs had disappeared before the end of the 90 days. But I have not, the results were well worth the money paid; and still less than what I have spent on all of the other useless hair removal gadgets previously bought. I may now use it for my body; and if as they say hairs have different growing phases and new ones appear on my face I will not worry.
I cannot wait until QVC get the Tria Age Defying Laser, also pricy but with a decent money back guarantee (90 days hopefully) I would definitely try it. Tria has delivered on this product and would
I have no misgivings about recommending this product, it is truly magical.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Olderbutwiser Tria
I bought this about a year ago after trying every method of hair removal, from plucking to very expensive laser treatments every couple of weeks. I had dark hair growing on my chin and was getting desperate! I bought this thinking I had tried everything else without success so might as well try this! It is expensive but I am so impressed! After only a couple of sessions the hair was greatly reduced and now it is just a case of maintaining it. I get the occasional growth but nothing like what I used to get. I now don't have to talk to people with my hand over my chin as I was so embarrassed in case they could see any horrible growth!
On the highest setting it is quite painful (or maybe I am a wimp!) but I am happy to put up with it for the result!

Rated 3 out of 5 by sueellendallas The jury is out
I will review this item again when I have had it up and running for a while. This is just to give a tip to recipients. When you get the device and charge it, you are then instructed to activate it by phone or online. Mine was ready to activate on a weekend so the Tria line was closed so I did it online but the web address given defaults to a US site and it won't accept the unique code of your machine. You need to change it to the UK site! Just thought this knowledge may save others some frustration. Having done that there is supposed to be a light sensor on the base of the machine but the light on mine won't come on despite it being charged up.and following the instructions. Not sure why and can't ring the helpline until Monday so I hope I'm just doing something wrong. Hope to give a review on whether it is actually effective or not soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HappyLyn Shame about design
I purchased this item and used the complimentary 3 months to try it. Unfortunately I was disappointed with it, the main reasons being; it is quite heavy when you are holding it for long periods of time, when doing the bottom half of my legs the battery runs out and it is almost impossible to remember exactly where on your leg you have left to do without marking your leg with pen or something similar. I think this is OK for anyone just wanting to do a couple of hairs on their chin, underarms, or upper lip but the actual laser head is so small that it takes forever to do the bottom half of the leg. Even though I have used it religiously and kept increasing the number I am still getting fine hairs coming through.
