Beauty: TRIA (session #2)

1/21/2010 08:23:00 PM Ashley 0 Comments

Today was my much anticipated second session with the TRIA. So after a good shave, I got to it. There isn't really a change in my hair growth. I have a few patchy spots, but I'm guessing that's because of my hair growth cycles.

I was quickly reminded that it hurts a bit more on darker freckles. Now TRIA says to stay away from them, but I have a lot of them and sometimes they get hit. If I know I am coming up on one I try to drop the power to the lowest level. Again, the pain is like the snapping of a rubber band and you will for sure feel something if you have freckles.

Also there is this sweet little grid that they include in the pamphlet that shows you how many times you should set off the laser on a square inch of skin.


Lets just say that I have not exactly been setting off 25 laser pulses in a square inch. It's hard to do when you don't have a grid to follow on your leg. I do the best I can, but understand that I may have to do an extra treatment or two because of my lack of perfection.

Other than that, I don't have a lot to update on. Though if you have any questions, please let me know. Also, if you want a refresh here is how it all started...
