from Burlington ON
I have completed my first 8 wk. round and 4 wk rest period.My skin is not young but the results are truly amazing. Even good topicals could not eliminate pigmentation, lines, or firm the skin.By day 4 I was using Level 3. It is not unbearable.My #11 lines are greatly reduced. Lines on sides of mouth are very soft, skin is firmer and droop line is gone. Pigmentation spots are reduced, and skin looks brighter. Marionette lines have softened a lot. All these results for only 1o min. per evening on level 3. Yes the skin gets drier during treatment and needs moisturizers, but softness returns during rest period. I love the results and I love my Tria.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

i think everything has been said already. tria is nothing short of amazing. if you use it as directed and wait out the time , you will see results. far more affordable than spa laser treatments.

I've just finished my second go-round with my Tria and am thrilled. This past 8 week cycle, I concentrated on my "smokers lines" on my mouth (I'm a non smoker) and the very deep lines in my cheeks beside my mouth. I have now seen an unbelievable improvement in my smokers lines! Nothing I've ever used has even touched these lines! I'm beyond thrilled! And this improvement on level 2..level 3 is too painful for me! I've also noticed that for me, I give my skin an 8 week rest cycle, to REALLY rebuild collagen! I can't wait to see the improvement in my 3rd go round! Too bad the previous reviewer didn't stick with it! It takes longer than 4 weeks! I'm 60 and it took longer than 4 weeks to get my wrinkles...! I just wish I could go up to level 3....can you imagine the improvement I'd see! LOVE LOVE LOVE this machine!

So Far So Good
Bottom line is that our face will age, some better than others. There are genetic factors at play; how well we treated our skin while we aged; and whether one has the money & means for intervention, all the way from facial peels, botox, and the ultimate.. surgery. But no one really escapes the inevitable. With changes in technology we now have more options to choose whether we wish to age more gracefully, and try the interventions that were once only available to the rich & famous. And as women, we go through much to keep ourselves as youthful as possible. With home devices like TRIA it gives a chance in the privacy of our home to test certain treatments at a fraction of the cost. Whether it will work for all, that is why I like to read the reviews and hope that the individual gave the product a good run, and can be specific. I have been fortunate to have had good skin through my life. No acne, or other facial problems. But I have hit the mid-age where I would like to slow down what I see as slightly larger pores; some hyper pigmentation; the marionette lines and the number 11 between the eye brows.I am watching very closely, and have not told anyone to see whether they notice any changes. And close-up pictures. I have used the TRIA now for slightly over a month. I follow instructions closely, using the Primer Face Wash. I do have sensitive skin and reading comments to the stinging; analogies like a rubber band snapped on your face, had me mentally prepared for what may come. It did sting for me on Level 1. It was not the most pleasant feeling at all. I followed the pattern of where to use it on the face. I find the forehead for me the more difficult to get the knack of. After the treatment, my face was definitely red in places, and there was a hot, stinging sensation that remained for approximately 15 minutes after putting on the TRIA soothing cream. I love that product. Then I wait afew minutes and continue with my usual nightly serum and moisturizer regime. By morning the face is completely clear. I had to stay on Level 1 for almost a month before I could tolerate Level 2. By 1 month I could see a clarity that my skin did not have before. The pore size was diminishing, and some of the hyper-pigmentation on the facial sides and above the eye brows closer to the hairline was lightening.I did not have any break-out from the TRIA products. Level 2 for me was more stinging. I made the decision to tolerate it and continued with the process. The number 11 lines have a slight reduction, as did the marionette lines.I am not expecting miracles, but I could see the change beginning. I have one friend I visit with every 4-5 weeks. The other day I could see her scanning my face more and she commented, " that I looked really good, more fresh, had I been sleeping better and getting less migraines? Level 2 stings slightly less, but the redness continues for me after each session, and I find the TRIA finishing lotion really helps. In 20 minutes or so, again the stinging dissipates along with the redness. I have noticed this week my skin was getting drier. I backed off for one evening, used a enzyme peel followed by a richer moisturizer and by morning the skin was back to its soft, smooth self. So at this point in time, I like the changes I am seeing. I will definitely continue to see where is takes me after the 1st cycle. For me the stinging reduces slightly with time, but not that significant. As I have gotten better at learning where I should be with the TRIA on my face when the beep counts the time down, I am now literally in the same spot when the TRIA shuts off. With the 90 day trial that TSC is now offering, it is definitely worth a good trial. I would recommend it.

This does work!
from toronto ontario
I have had the Tria laser for 2 months now,and it absolutely does work.it has taken the two months to see actual results.I think that the older you are the longer it takes to repair the damage we have.In the last 2 weeks I have seen a definite filling out of my skin a definitely firmer appearance and lifting of sagging areas.The wrinkles above my lip are starting to soften and fill out and the nasal labial folds have decreased considerably.I am past boomer age and I really did not think anything would help. THIS DOES.Be patient and consistent.Terrific that they are now giving 90 days.It really gives a chance to see that it does work,when used as directed.

Nothing ventured...nothing gained.
By Beverley K
from Belleville, Ontario
I purchased this item after reading the comments in the review section and after contacting Tria directly to ask them specific questions such as "how long the battery last". The first day I used it on the lowest...two days later I used it on the 2nd level and the rest of the time I had it on high. I used it ever night and it wasn't that painful...I just knew that I had to keep moving it. I felt a lot of pressure to see results because I only had less than 4 weeks. I just returned it, last week, in plenty of time for the end of the month after not seeing any difference on my skin. I'm going to be 60 this year and have no wrinkles but I purchased this to be pro-active and to eliminate the age spots I have on my forehead...I didn't see any difference. Perhaps if I had used it longer I might have seen a difference. Now I see that the month has been increased to 90 days!!!! Why wasn't I told about this before returning my unit as I was in touch with customer service??? I would love to recommend this unit to others, however, how can I based on the short amount of time I had it?

Patience and managed expectations
By Amateur dancer
I had already been to a dermatologist using a laser for clearing up spots so I was already sold on the science of it. But I was not sure if a device designed for personal use at home would necessarily achieve the same objectives, and mine were really to clear up some longstanding sunspots. It is the most expensive purchase I have yet made on the Shopping Channel, and it was with some reluctance warring with hope that I bought this. I followed the instructions, and the device and recommended treatment were easy to follow and to use. I am now into my fourth week and only on level 2. I had to temper my expectations because the Tria does not of course have the same power as the dermatologist' laser. There is definitely improvement in my skin, much to my amazement and some astonishment (ok, I was a bit more skeptical than I had thought!) It is only when others noticed something different in my skin that I was sure I wasn't seeing things in noticing a slow fading of my sunspots, and the skin is definitely more smooth (was not my objective but what the hey.) I will continue to use as recommended and report back, but I am pleased that my expectations are being met.

Love the laser but hate the skin product
I bought this product directly from Tria as soon as it was released and it is an excellent product. Yes it does sting so if you have no pain tolerance don't buy it. The stinging subsides with more use. My skin has most certainly improved but is it a miracle device...no of course not. Don't expect to have no wrinkles as that is just not realistic but do expect to see visible results. The cleanser was fine and it did seem to cleanse really well but the other product caused me to break out so I had to discontinue use of both products in case they were both causing this issue. Thankfully they were free with my order. When I received my device it was reading an error and wouldn't work at all but I called Tria and they sent a new device once they received the return and extended the warranty period to ensure I had the full warranty on the replacement. Whenever I have called with an issue or questions they've been excellent to deal with. I rarely have time to write a review but made the time in this case as it deserves accolades for the results it delivers. I own every Tria device because they work exceptionally well.

THIS MACHINE IS THE BOMB!!!!!!
I'm just further updating my previous comments. I completed the 8th week and have gone through one week of the rest period. The lines above my lips have significantly reduced. The lines around the corners of my mouth are also significantly reduced. I still have some dryness to my skin (sandpapery) but I exfoliate every day and that is lessening. I'm so excited to see what the next 3 weeks reveal. I wish I had this machine years ago but am over-the-moon I have it now!
Great results so far
I'm into my 6th week and so far, so good. The pigmentation at the side of my face is completely gone. Because my skin is so sensitive, I haven't been able to advance to beyond level 2. But the Tria people said that there are several people in their office who can't tolerate level 3. So us "softies" will still get results, just not as quickly. I've contacted the Tria people many many times and also emailed them and they were awesome with communication. They even had a supervisor call me to address the fact that it's too painful for me to go to level 3. To be honest, I don't see a difference in the lines above my lips or the sides of my mouth but they are very deep so maybe it'll take some time and work. But I'm absolutely thrilled with my purchase and have never had a desire to return it.
