Step 1: Prepare
Thoroughly cleanse, shave and towel-dry your skin. This will allow the laser treatment to be most effective since the laser works on the hair inside the follicle, under the surface of the skin.
Next turn it on. Unlock the laser by locating the skin sensor (red light) on the device base and hold it against the skin you wish to treat. This will ensure that it's suitable to use on your skin tone.
Step 2: Customise
The sensation of the TRIA Hair Removal Laser varies, depending on the person and treatment area. Some users may feel the sensation of a rubber band snapping on the skin. Others may feel a warm, prickling sensation.
Start at a low treatment level (1 or 2) and then increase by one treatment level at a time until you've reached the highest treatment level comfortable to you. The higher the treatment level, the faster and better the results.
Step 3: Apply
Establish a treatment area and place the laser tip on your skin, on the area you wish to treat, making sure that it is flat on your skin. Hold the laser tip in place until you hear a beep. After each beep, just glide or lift and place the laser tip about ¼ inch and wait for the next beep. You want to make sure that the laser tip slightly overlaps the area that you just treated. "
