I recently wrote a Tria Laser Hair Removal review click here to read it, and it's been getting a decent amount of traffic from potential Tria users interested in whether or not it actually works.  Even though the vast majority of the feedback I get is positive, I have had a few people contact me with some Tria Laser Hair Removal complaints that they had.  For their benefit, and for the benefit of people wondering what those complaints might be, I'd like to take a moment to address the issues at hand.

The Tria Doesn't Work For Everybody

While I think I made it pretty clear in my review that the Tria system absolutely does work, not everybody is able to use it.  If you can safely use it, the Tria will permanently remove your hair, but if you're among the people who can't use it, the device won't even function for you.  All laser treatments actually have this problem, which is why some people can't get them, even from professionals.

To understand why this is so, you need to understand how laser hair removal works.  It's very sophisticated technology, able to target and ultimately destroy your hair without damaging your skin at all.  It does this by sensing the contrast between your skin and hair; in simple terms, the laser "sees" the dark hair stand out against the lighter skin tone.

You may already see where I'm going with this.  If you have very dark brown or black skin, or very light blonde, red, or white hair, the Tria isn't going to work, because it won't be able to tell the difference between your skin and hair!  Using it might actually be dangerous, which is why the unit performs a skin test before each application.

This is easily the biggest Tria Laser Hair Removal complaint, and while most people won't have to worry about this, you still have options if you're worried the Tria might not work for you.  For one, you can always take advantage of their 90-DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE to see if it works with your skin tone and hair color.  If it doesn't, you can try the No No Hair Removal, which uses very similar technology, but since it's heat-based instead of light-based, anybody can use it click here for a great No No Hair Removal review.

It's Not Instantaneous

I've had a couple readers write in after using the Tria several times, saying it doesn't work.  My advice to them?  Keep going.  If you're following the recommended treatment schedule, you should be using it about once every 2-4 weeks to begin with.  The official line is that you can see results in as few as 3 treatments, but users seem to report that it's more like 5-8.  This means you may actually have to use the Tria for a couple months before you start seeing real results.

IF YOU START USING IT AS SOON AS YOU GET IT, YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY SEE REAL RESULTS WITHIN THE TRIAL PERIOD!

Also keep in mind that if you keep using the Tria, eventually that hair isn't going to come back at all.  Overall, the time you spend with this device is comparable or better than the time spent at a salon, and you can do it at your own pace, on your own schedule, in your own home.  Most users report treatment times of around 5 months total, though it may be a little more or less, depending on how much hair you're treating.

But It Is Permanent

A couple other readers wrote in to say hair grew back after using it for a while.  Again: keep doing the treatments!  It IS permanent, it just takes a while to get to that point.

One of the things you should know before you start using the Tria is that hair grows in cycles, with three distinct stages: the Anagen, or growth stage; the Catagen, or renewal stage; and the Telogen, or dormant phase.

You don't need to precisely understand all of this, but it's important to know that these cycles directly affect your treatment, since you can only fully destroy hair when it's the active stage.  Only a third of your hair may be in this stage at any given moment, so you'll only be able to fully treat that hair.  The Catagen stage lasts a couple of weeks, and the Telogen stage may last months, during which that hair isn't going to removed permanently.

This may sound complicated, but don't worry: the recommended treatment schedule was designed with this cyclical growth in mind.  Stick to the schedule, and you'll be HAIR-FREE IN MONTHS!

Hopefully this has cleared up any misconceptions, or shed some light on Tria Laser Hair Removal complaints.  If you've haven't already, check out my Tria Laser Review, or check out the official website if you're ready to try one out.
