Tria Age-Defying Laser Review and a Giveaway!

Tria Age-Defying Laser Review and a Giveaway!

Many of you have been following along with my progress while using the Tria Age-Defying Laser. It’s been a few months since I first told you about my initial Tria experience back in March, just a few weeks into the 12-week treatment, with this post. A few weeks later, I followed up with a Q & A post at the 8-week mark.

Tria Age-Defying Laser

I have since completed the 12-week Tria Age-Defying Laser treatment and am taking a four-week break before restarting another 12-week round.

Now that I have been through the program, I want to share my final Tria Age-Defying Laser review with you and include user tips, a personal video and a fantastic giveaway!

First, a few tips for using Tria Age-Defying Laser:

~ Don’t use multiple skincare products at once.

Choose one cleanser, one toner (if you use one, I don’t), one moisturizer and one sunscreen. I made the mistake of continuously grabbing whatever product was handy and my skin reacted adversely. Very adversely. I had a terrible cluster of red bumps on my left cheek and had to stop using my Tria Age-Defying Laser until it cleared up. Using the Tria while my skin was still angry just made the situation worse. I committed to only three products: Tria Priming Cleanser, Tria Finishing Serum and my old standby sunscreen, Vanicream. That seemed to do the trick. Once my skin cleared up, I resumed using the laser five nights a week with no issues.

~ Keep the laser clean.

I noticed a few days into level three that the intensity of the laser was not as strong as it had been in the beginning. At first I thought it was because I was getting used to it. Then I read in the manual that the laser light can get dirty from debris (skin cells, dust, oils, etc.). I cleaned it gently with the cloth that I use to clean my sunglasses and it worked like a charm!

~ Use your Tria Age-Defying Laser immediately after you cleanse and dry your skin.

I tried using my Tria on my clean skin a few hours after I had washed it and it didn’t glide easily across my face the way it should because oils had already moistened my face too much, thereby making it difficult to sweep across my face.

~ Keep it charged.

Once you get to level three (which is where you will spend most of your treatment time) you will need to pay more attention to battery life. On more than one occasion, my Tria would conk out on me midway through my treatment because I had not charged it. Level three is a 10-minute treatment. Make sure you power up beforehand!

~ Use a quality moisturizer that soothes.

After your treatment, be sure to smooth on a quality moisturizer or serum. Sometimes, especially at level three, you will feel like you have a mild sunburn right after treatment. I usually apply two layers of Tria Finishing Serum before bed. That will normally take care of any redness I have after the treatment.

My overall experience with Tria Age-Defying Laser has been very positive. I would recommend this product to anyone who would like to have the benefits of laser light treatment without the hassle and cost of invasive lasers offered at dermatologists’ and plastic surgeons’ offices. It’s 1/3 of the cost of just one treatment and you can treat your skin in the privacy of your own home.

I created a video – my first ever on the blog – to show you how I use the Tria, tell you more about my experience with it, and show my progression photos since the start, up to a current photo from last Saturday, June 14th.

I am thrilled to tell you that Tria has agreed to give away a Tria Age-Defying Laser, valued at $495.00 USD, to one lucky reader!

This giveaway is open to U.S. addresses only.

The winner will be chosen at random on June 29th, which just happens to be the four-year anniversary of The Rich Life on a Budget.

What a great way to celebrate a blog birthday!

    Since I turned 31 I noticed a few wrinkles on my forehead and a few by my eyes. I also noticed my skin is not as radiant as it use to be. My skin appears to have more blemishes and dark spots as well. So winning this Tria Laser would mean the world to me.
