Patients seeking permanent hair removal must undergo several treatments in order to see results, and packages can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 or more, depending on the amount of hair that needs to be removed.
The FDA has now cleared an at-home laser system for permanent hair reduction, and this could help thousands of women save money and treat their skin in the comforts of home. The TRIA Laser Hair Removal System helps remove unwanted hair without shaving, cream or light energy that could damage the skin. It is the only FDA-cleared laser system for permanent hair reduction, and the treatment cycle lasts only a couple of minutes.
TRIA has also developed the TRIA Skin Clarifying System, an FDA-cleard blue light device that helps to smooth out the skin, reduces acne breakouts and gives the skin a finer texture. This system was originally developed to treat adult acne, but can also help those who experience monthly breakouts, or just want to improve their skin tone.
The TRIA laser hair removal system has been modified since its inception to offer more energy options, which means that more coarse hair can be treated with each session. The at-home laser devices are designed to be just as powerful as those used in a professional setting, and can be adjusted to suit different skin types and different types of hair. With continuous use, the TRIA laser hair removal device eliminates the need to shave or wax permanently.
The system is currently available at physician’s offices, at fine retailers and online. The retail price is $595 and comes with a carrying case and charger. Most people see progressive results after two to three months of continuous use, and lasting results after eight months.
