For the ladies among us who suffer from unsightly hairs sprouting up in unfortunate places, and are fed up of waxing and shaving, a new DIY device is now available to buy in the UK.
The Tria Hair Removal Laser device claims to permanently remove hair by using light-based laser beams, and it has been publicly endorsed by none other that reality US TV star Kim Kardashian.
Ms Kardashian, who is currently pregnant with her first child to US rapper Kanye West, has tweeted to her followers that since she had begun using the Tria product she was “loving the results so far”. The futuristic device costs around £375 but is said to get rid of hair within 12 weeks and is set to be the must have gadget for this year.
It went on sale at Harrods and Harvey Nichols this week where previously it was only available for use in selected salons. Now you can use it yourself within the comfort of your own home.
The Tria Hair Removal Laser is a cordless hair removal laser and features an upgraded digital display, which showcases Tria’s exclusive new Pulse Counter that allows you treat your face and body more confidently. This is the only device that uses the same diode laser technology preferred by dermatologists to deliver permanent results at home.
Clinical tests carried out on the Tria found it zapped away 70 per cent of body hair in just two treatments, and during the course of 12 weeks, if used once a week, it permanently removed nearly all strands of hair.
And any hairs that happened to escape the laser treatment came back much lighter and finer so that they were barely visible.
Tria’s CEO Dr Tobin Island said “The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X is the latest innovation in professional-quality, at-home solutions for our consumers. It has experienced tremendous success and vast consumer acceptance (in the US). We are extremely excited to bring it to UK consumers.”
The handheld, cordless device comes in a choice of two colours – either green or fuchsia, and is simple to use. You just cleanse, shave and towel-dry your skin to allow the laser treatment to be most effective.
Then you locate the skin sensor (red light) on the device base and hold it against the skin you wish to treat. This will ensure that it’s suitable to use on your skin tone.
There is one drawback with the Tria Hair Removal Laser however, the manufacturers state that it is only effective on light to medium skin tones, and people who have very light hair or medium to dark hair should not use it, as the skin could absorb the laser too efficiently and cause burns to the surrounding areas.
There is a test on the Tria website to see whether you are suitable candidate to use the Tria Hair Removal Device.
