Lasers are not just for professionals. Winner of the 2014 CEW Insiders’ Choice Beauty Award, the Tria Age-Defying Laser gives women and men the option to experience age-blasting laser treatments in the comfort of their own homes. The first FDA-approved DIY anti-aging laser product safe for use on the entire face, the Tria Age-Defying Laser offers the same laser technology as a professional treatment – for a fraction of the price. With just a few minutes a day, you can discover younger skin in 12 weeks or less.
How does it work?
Created by a team of plastic surgeons and dermatologists, Tria utilizes fractional non-ablative laser technology, in other words, the exact same technology you would see with a professional treatment. In just two weeks, Tria can erase wrinkles and help you rediscover your natural luminosity for a refreshed, radiant appearance that will have family and friends impressed and jealous.
Tria works by sending targeted beams into deep layers of the skin to treat problems from within. The warm sensation you may feel during use is caused by microscopic areas of cellular disruption (the surface of your skin is not affected). This “damage” actually causes your body to begin its natural healing process, which includes the production of collagen. As new collagen is produced, wrinkles and imperfections fade away.
Tria’s at home laser device is 100% safe and includes extra safety features to prevent accidents. Tria is safe for treatment of the entire face including the sensitive area around the eyes.
Expect your friends to notice! While the “full program” is 12 weeks, many users notice positive results after week 2. Benefits include supple texture, enhanced clarity, radiance, and smoothness.
The Tria device is easy to use. For best results, start by washing your face with Tria Priming Cleanser. This cleanser is specially formulated to remove impurities that may block laser light. Make sure to pat your face dry with a towel before treatment.
The laser turns on with the push of a button and is ready for use immediately. With the laser tip flat against your skin, gently move it from side to side, covering the entire face. There are three intensity levels; we recommend starting off with the lightest level. You’ll hear a beep when your session is complete. The device will then turn off automatically.
Finish the process by applying Tria Finishing Serum, a soothing formula that hydrates and brightens the skin. Your Tria Anti-Aging Laser will come with a handy charging station and user manual and weighs 4.5 pounds.

What users liked about the product:
- Diminished crow’s feet after 1 month of use
- 52-year-old received first ever compliment about skin
- Tightened skin and boosted radiance for much less $$ than a professional treatment
- Appeared 20 years younger after 12 weeks
- Must use as directed to see results
- Complete disappearance of age spots after 12 weeks
- Improved texture

- Friends and family said, “You look well rested.”
This beauty product has a 3.5 out of 5 star rating on Amazon. Those who weren’t satisfied with the Tria complained about the following problems:
- Considerable pain during treatment
- Battery lasts for 3 years only; entire device must be replaced
- Any brand of cleanser and serum will work – you don’t need to buy Tria’s over priced versions
- User manual advises not to use on freckles and states the FDA-approval is only for crow’s feet
- Issues with customer support
- Issues with charging port not working
- Some users reported no results even after 12 weeks of use.
According to reviews, Tria is great at erasing age spots and giving users a refreshed, well-rested look. It falls short in that it might not be suitable for people with freckles and is too painful for some individuals to handle.
Alternative Laser Treatments
Norlanya sells a similar, smaller DIY device for just $89.99. The RF Thermage is a mini dot-matrix model designed to treat signs of aging. The biggest differences between the Thermage and the Tria are:
- Tria weighs twice as much
- RF Thermage uses replaceable tips
- Norlanya is not a laser
RF Thermage uses a different type of energy (mono polar radio frequency) to treat the deeper layers of your skin. Benefits include improved contour and tightness. The technology is similar to the laser used by Tria, but the energy is less intense. Like the first product, RF Thermage is also aimed to incite the body to produce collagen.
Norlanya is appropriate for all ethnicities and skin types. Expect to see results after 8-10 treatments (3 months). Specifically, Norlanya claims its product can:
- Improve sagging eyelids and wrinkles in the eye area
- Tighten loose jowls
- Smooth wrinkles and fine lines
- Remodel collagen for healthier skin
RF Thermage can be used on other parts of the body to treat unwanted bulges, sagging skin, and dimples as well as temporarily improve the look of cellulite.
What users said about RF Thermal:
- Device can cause burns if not used properly
- Takes a long time since the device is so small
- Broke after 3 months
- Tightens skin
- Easy to use
- Works, but not as effective as professional thermage treatments
Tria claims that 83% of their customers rate Tria equally effective as a professional laser treatment. This claim matches user reviews. Since Tria utilizes the same technology found in a dermatologist’s office, it makes sense that results would be similar.
Still, Tria’s DIY laser isn’t quite as powerful as a professional-grade device. Although you may be saving money (professional treatments can cost upwards of $900 per treatment) by purchasing the Tria, you won’t have a doctor’s skill or advice. When you visit a professional, he or she will select a specific treatment tailored to your skin type and needs.
Tria’s DIY device is appropriate for women and men who don’t want to shell out the money for professional treatments and are looking for a well-rested, refreshed, younger appearance that is achieved by diligent work in the privacy of the home.
