A few weeks ago Tria sent me their SmoothBeauty™ Laser to try and review, which made me really excited since I had heard so many great things about it. In case you are not familiar with the product, SmoothBeauty™ Laser is an FDA-cleared device that allows you to perform laser treatments at home.
So, exactly how does it work?
The technology behind is called “fractional non-ablative“, basically what is does is sending out beams of light to penetrate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen. It is reported to show noticeable improvements on the skin (smoother, more radiant, etc) within a few weeks.
Then, what do I think of it?
Now, I have been testing it out for almost two weeks. Before diving into more details, I need to say that I am no expert on dermatologist treatments, so everything here is based on my personal experience and opinion.
First off, I have to admit the looking of the device is designed to be very sleek and beautiful. The usage is quite straightforward: after washing and drying your face, turn on the laser, choose one of the three levels of intensity. The lowest level (1) is a training level, mostly used to help your skin get prepared to the sensation of the actual treatment levels (2 and 3).
Gently glide the device on your skin. When it touches the skin, the contact light will be on and you will start to feel the sensation. I think it depends on your tolerance level, but there is mostly likely to be a process for your skin to get adjusted.
I remember the first time I turned it on, I had an immediate prickling feeling on my face. Again, I can only speak for myself, as I don’t have super sensitive skin, it didn’t take me long to get used to the sensation. Right after the treatment, my cheek became a bit dry and showed redness, while the following finishing serum definitely helped to soothe and calm.
The whole process is merely a few minutes, which is pretty easy to keep up as a night routine. I followed the instructions and performed the treatment everyday for five days a week, then stopped for the weekend to let my skin take a rest. The entire course takes 12 weeks, so it is fair to say I’m still at the beginning stage. But to my biggest surprise, I can already see the improvements on my skin. The most obvious differences I could tell so far include more even skin tone as well as clearer and brighter complexion.
I hope this review has provided some insight into the Tria SmoothBeauty™ Laser. Their website has a very detailed introduction about the device and is absolutely a great source of information if you are interested. I will keep you guys posted with how I feel about the treatment given more time. Last but not least, don’t hesitate to contact me or comment down below if you have any questions!
