I was recently selected as a Tria Age-Defying Laser Ambassador. As part of the program, I’ve been testing the product and will be sharing my experiences over the next few months. The Tria Age-Defying Laser is an anti-aging skin care tool that helps to stimulate your body’s natural collagen renewal process resulting in less visible fine lines and wrinkles and overall smoother skin on your face.
The full treatment regimen is for 12 weeks, using the Age-Defying Laser five nights a week. Each night, I cleanse my skin with the Tria Beauty Priming Cleanser, which removes any skin impurities and prepares the skin for the anti-aging laser treatment. As part of the treatment regimen, the face is segmented into four different zones. Each cheek area (up to the temple) is a zone, as are the forehead and chin. After allowing my face to fully dry, I start using the Age-Defying Laser on the right cheek and temple area of my face (zone 1). To treat each zone, I glide the Age-Defying Laser slowly over the skin in each “zone” until the audible tone indicates that it is time to move to the next one.
The Age-Defying Laser has three different levels. Level 1 is considered the training level to get you accustomed to using the laser, as well as the heat and prickly sensation that are experienced as the anti-aging laser treats your skin. Given that I am overly ambitious (and failed to read the directions), I did the training level for two days and then went straight to Level 3. Let’s just say that there is a reason that you use the training level for a full week and then use Level 2 for two weeks. It allows the skin to become adapted to the anti-aging laser. While the anti-aging laser is not painful, there is increasing heat with each level and it can take a few moments to get adjusted to the sensation. After going back and starting on Level 2 for weeks 2 and 3 (as per the instructions), I noticed that I quickly became acclimated to the feeling of the laser. After treating my full face, I apply the Tria Beauty Finishing Serum. The serum soothes and hydrates the post-treatment skin. On Level 2 the stinging sensation (similar to the feeling of sunburn) subsided after approximately 30 minutes). After using the Age-Defying Laser for a few days, I did notice that my skin started to feel dry. Adding an extra moisturizer after the serum and also gently exfoliating in the morning quickly took care of this issue. I have also continued to use my regular sunscreen to protect my skin and the maintain the results I have achieved from using the Age-Defying Laser.
In the three weeks that I have been using the Tria Age-Defying Laser, I have already noticed some improvements in my skin. It has a smoother, more youthful appearance. Stayed tuned for future posts and photos of my results!
