I'm struggling with aging wisely and gracefully and I know many of you are in the same boat (and for the 20 year old reading this--get ready the next few decades to go at warp speed after the kids come along.) I ask myself: "How far are you willing to go to look young?"
Tria Age-Defying Laser was developed for women like me who don't really want to go the invasive route. Yep, I cannot imagine face peels that leave my skin looking like uncooked bacon and I'm terrified of surgery. I want to know what's out there that is affordable, convenient and really works.
I'm almost done my 12-week trial with the Tria Age-Defying Laser. Here's what I learned about myself:
- Taking care of my skin is a priority
- I'm willing to invest time in my at-home skincare routine to avoid expensive in-office treatments
- I'm not ready to go the invasive route
Here's what I learned about the Tria Age-Defying Laser:
- It's easy to master
- It works to give your skin a boost
- It won't work HUGE miracles, but it will make noteworthy changes
The biggest change I saw was in the overall texture of my skin--it's getting softer, smoother and yes, the fine lines are dissipating.
5 Pretty Ways To Organize Your Jewelry
I admit - I'm guilt. Despite my best efforts, my "jewelry drawer" has become a tangled mess of necklaces, bracelets and earrings. This cluttered collection not only makes it hard to see what I have, but difficult to untangle the pieces I do want to wear! This summer, I'm ...read more

I want to share some of my tips to make using the Tria Age-Defying Laser easier and more effective:
1.) Skip the Clarisonic. While I love my cleansing brush, I found the brush in combination with the Age-Defying Laser was a bit too aggressive for my skin.
2.) It's only recommended to use the laser 5 days a week. Map out the days you'll use the Age-Defying Laser. I like Sunday-Thursday. I take the 2-day break during the weekend.
3.) Mark your calendar or phone so you remember to switch the setting from each level if you’re ready.
4.) Use the serum, it's soothing and light enough to layer under moisturizer. I found the serum really reduced redness.
5.) Keep out of the sun, or use a good sunblock.
TIP: I don’t recommend jumping right to level three! The gradual process works best and pays off.
Here's my routine, I do a deep-cleanse at night using the Tria Priming Cleanser. Then I used the Tria Age-Defying Laser and then the Finishing Serum. Then I used my normal nightly moisturizer and eye cream. In the morning, I simply rinse my face and add a sunblock.
TIP: I prefer not to use a retinol while using the Age-Defying Laser. This was too much for my skin. I recommend resuming products with retinol in them AFTER your 12-week treatment.
Here's where I am: I have explored in-office treatments with my dermatologist. I am not ready for anything drastic yet. The Tria Age-Defying Laser is a perfect next step when added to lotions to delay the aging process. Overall I've seen the look of my skin improved. If a radiant glow is what you are after, this is a great investment of time and money.
