Last month, I shared that I’m taking part in a three-month campaign where I’m testing out the Tria Age-Defying Laser so I can share it with you! I want you to know up front that I am being compensated for my time in testing out this product, but I will be candid about my experience.
It’s now been two months that I’ve been using the Tria Age-Defying Laser. At first, it was hard to remember to do it every night, and it took some time to adjust to the sensation during treatment. After two months, I am on Level 3, and it’s now a familiar part of my evening routine.
You may remember, there are three levels. I started with Training Level 1 and moved to Treatment Level 2 after I adjusted to the sensation, after about a week. The idea is to increase the intensity over time so your skin adjusts slowly. Take a look at this graphic, depicting how it works.
The stinging sensation is there, but it doesn’t bother me at all. And I have started to notice my skin tone evening out a bit. I think it’s hard when you see your own skin every day to really tell if you’re seeing results or not, but my husband even mentioned this weekend that he thought it’s working. WOOT!!
The hardest part is sticking with it for the entire 10 minutes. I am one to rush through my evening beauty routine (and my morning one, for that matter!!) I’m always tempted to shut it off early, thinking that I’ve done it long enough. Fortunately it beeps to let me know when it’s time to move it to another quadrant of the face, so that keeps me honest.
I keep telling myself it’s a lot less of a time commitment than driving to a spa and having an hour-long treatment.
I’ve started taking it into my bedroom and using it while I surf Facebook on my iPad. It’s a bit of a juggling act, but at least I have something to occupy my mind while I’m performing the treatment!
I’m also enjoying the skincare products that come along with it. The Age-Defying Skincare Priming Cleanser feels gentle and moisturizing, and the Age-Defying Skincare Finishing Serum soothes my skin and helps reduce the redness that the laser produces.
From what I’ve read, this is about the time you really start to notice a difference so I’m excited to see how my skin improves over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for before/after photos AND a video showing you exactly how the Tria Age-Defying Laser works.
