Holding Back The Years With Tria Beauty Age-Defying Laser

Holding Back The Years With Tria Beauty Age-Defying Laser

So there I was studying eery crevice and line on my face as wondering if there really was any truth in the concept of growing old gracefully. Magnifying mirrors are both a gift and a curse. I totally get that there is no shame in sporting the odd line here and there, laughter lines, to me,  are a trophy of happiness which should be worn with pride. It’s those pesky frown lines which I can’t abide though, hate the bloody things but I’m a prolific squinter on a sunny day and at the grand age of 41 mine are proving a permanent feature along with a few tell tale signs of  a miss-spent youth.

I’ve actually got quite a good skincare routine which was given a boost 8 weeks ago with the introduction of a  Tria Beauty age defying laser. It has never even occurred to me that there was an option of tackling fine lines with an at home laser promising to

 restore the natural luminosity of your entire face, reduce discolouration, improve skin texture and smooth hard-to-treat wrinkles in the comfort of your own home. Penetrating beams of light continuously rebuild collagen beneath the skin’s surface for a more youthful, radiant and refreshed look in as little as 2 weeks.

Was I nervous to try out something which was usually only available in a salon? Yes, yes I was.

But none the less I was keen to see exactly what it could do.
So after a thorough cleanse of my face to allow the laser to really work it’s magic I sat in front of the mirror, put it on the lowest setting and glided it over my face in an up and down motion concentrating on each area starting with the forehead, each side of the face and then the chin and lip area.

The laser beeps when it’s time to move on and feels like a hot finger nail running along the surface of your skin. Nothing uncomfortable but the sensation did feel a lot more noticeable as I moved up through the settings over the weeks, especially around the lip area which tended to be more sensitive.

As the weeks turned into a months, the effects were starting to become more and more apparent. Initially there was just a general smoother appearance but after 8 weeks of daily use I’ve noticed my freckles have faded along with some larger areas of pigmentation making my skin look a lot clearer, the fine lines around my eyes and mouth a lot less visable and my deep frown lines much less apparent.


I’ve changed the way I’m using the Tria now that I’m use to the sensation and concentrating on the deeper lines. It’s still very much part of my evening skincare routine and will report back after a full 11 weeks of continuous use.

    It’ll be interesting to see what the results are after you’ve used it for some time. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Almost a month after your initial post, have you continued to see much more improvement. Thank you!

      I’ve just had a month off as suggested and have started using it again this week and am noticing a difference once again. It’s quite subtle but it’s certainly made a difference
