There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Then I checked the machine. The warning light was on, and the machine stopped working. What is shocking is that, it was automatically turned to level 3, not level 1! The instruction clearly says that, for the first 50 uses, the energy will be locked on level 1. My second try is on level 3. I really suspect that this is not a new product, but a used one. Sadly I have to return it. And if you can explain how the huge sound and the automatic change of levels happen, please tell me. Thank you anyway.
The cartridges do not last very long, and can get expensive, but I feel that it has been very much worth it. The company was also very responsive when I contacted them about an issue with a cartridge. Silk'n sent me a replacement right away, and they were very easy and pleasant to deal with, great customer support!
However, I also don't like spending this much and having zero results, so I purchased a light refill and some carbon (you'll see it suggested) to perhaps help define the hair follicles and make them more laser-friendly and I will report back. If that doesn't work I'd be happy to purchase another TRIA.
This is the first hair removal product I've ever used, other than shaving with a manual razor. I have a fair complexion and medium-brown hair. My biggest problem was skin irritation and razorburn when shaving my bikini area so basically, I always had to choose whether I wanted a bunch of red bumps or I wanted to be hairy (sounds gross, I know) when wearing a swimsuit.
I had done a little research before the box arrived so I thought I knew what I was doing but once the box arrived, I was nervous so I watched the instructional DVD that came inside. The directions were very clear and I didn't have any questions before my first try. My biggest fear was the pain. Most of the reviews compared it to a snapping rubber band, which really scared me so, like it was recommended, I started on the upper part of my legs on the lowest setting. I was freaking out just a little bit before I pulled the trigger for the first time but found that I didn't even feel it. I immediately moved the intensity up to the middle setting, 3. I BARELY felt that one and continued to zap my entire thigh and bikini line. After realizing that I experienced pretty much zero pain, I decided to try the highest setting on my other leg and honestly, it wasn't a problem at all. I felt it a bit, but it was nowhere near unbearable or uncomfortable. Zapping each tiny block of skin was fairly time consuming but for the hope of forever hair loss, it's no big deal. I do have to admit, the zaps stung slightly more under my arms.
As far as hair loss, there are no noticeable differences 2 days after my first use, which is to be expected. My legs were a little red and blotchy in places for a couple hours but again, no big deal. Another notable is that this light is REALLY, REALLY bright. The directions say you can just close your eyes before each zap so that's what I did. And I really like the fact that this package comes with an extra light cartridge. So far, I've zapped my underarms, bikini line and both legs just from the knee up with no indication that my first light cartridge is "running low". I suppose if I have success in those areas, it would definitely be worth investing in more light cartridges (if needed) to do any other parts of my body.
The directions say to do your next treatment 2 weeks after the first so we'll see how this goes and I'll keep this review updated!
