Age-Defying Laser FAQs
What is the Age-Defying Laser?
It is essentially a handheld skin resurfacing laser, which promotes collagen production, and in doing so, creates a range of beneficial results. It is FDA-cleared, and completely safe to use at home. It is a real game-changer because this type of laser technology is usually only found in professional salons.
Which technology does the Age-Defying Laser use?
Non-ablative means that the laser does not remove the top layer of your skin, it works by heating up the underlying skin tissue without harming the surface, stimulating collagen to be renewed as part of your skin’s natural healing process. Fractional simply means that the laser’s microscopic beams target portions of the skin at a time.
How does the Age-Defying Laser compare to professional salon treatments?
Tria’s dermatologist-recommended laser is clinically proven to achieve similar skin improvement results as some of the costly professional salon treatments. It encompasses the same technology yet can be safely used in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
How does the Age-Defying Laser compare to the anti-ageing products that I am already using?
Unlike traditional skincare products, our laser reaches below your skin’s surface to work its magic. In clinical trials, 92% said that it worked better than any cream or serum used in isolation.
Which areas can I treat?
The laser is designed to be used on your face. We recommend that it is not used on other body parts including your neck or décolleté area. Important: Avoid your eyes and general eye area; treat below your eyes only where you can feel your bone beneath the skin and treat above your eyebrows.
How long do I have to treat?
Treat your skin each evening for eight weeks, rest your skin for four weeks and then repeat the process until you are satisfied with your results.
Can I use the Age-Defying Laser more than once a day?
No, do not treat each zone more than once per day (once every 24 hours). Doing this could result in increased risk of skin irritation.
Which treatment level should I use?
The lowest treatment level allows for your skin to adjust to the laser’s sensation; once comfortable, move to a higher level for optimal results.
When should I treat?
As you may notice some temporary redness of the skin where you treated, treat in the evening before bedtime to allow skin renewal to begin and redness to diminish overnight.
Do I need to cleanse my face before treatment?
Use a cleanser to prep your skin by removing makeup, sun cream and other impurities that can interfere with the laser light. For best results we recommend using our Purifying Cleanser that is especially formulated for use with laser-treated skin.
When can I expect to first see results?
You should start to see visible results like smoother skin in as few as 2 weeks, followed by fewer lines and wrinkles occurring a few weeks after the full 8-week course of treatment.
What will my skin look like during treatment?
You may notice some temporary redness or slight puffiness of your treated skin. This is completely normal, and most people find it soon diminishes as your skin adjusts to the treatments. Follow your laser treatment with our Age-Defying Serum to soothe and hydrate your skin.
What skin products should I use after my daily treatment?
Follow your laser treatment with our Age-Defying Serum to soothe and hydrate treated skin. Formulated to improve firmness and increase elasticity, this luxurious serum will fit perfectly into your beauty routine.
Is the Age-Defying Laser safe for me to use? / When should I not use the Age-Defying Laser?
The Age-Defying Laser is appropriate for all skin types. Do not use if you are under the age of 18, and do not allow children to play with or use this device. Consult a health care professional first if you are pregnant or undergoing professional cosmetic treatments, such as a skin peel, laser resurfacing or filler injections. Also consult a health care professional if you have a significant medical skin condition, your skin is unusually sensitive, your skin easily develops a rash or allergic reaction or if you are taking a medicine, such as a steroid. The Age-Defying Laser should also not be used on skin that contains permanent makeup or is tattooed, infected, burned or cut.
What are the possible side effects when using the Age-Defying Laser?
During treatments, you may feel mild discomfort such as a slight warming or prickling, which many users say feels like a sunburn. These are all normal side effects and generally subside within a few minutes or hours but may continue throughout treatment. They may diminish with continued use as the skin adapts to the treatment. The Age-Defying Serum can help minimize these side effects.
If I just saw my beautician for an anti-ageing treatment, how long should I wait before using the Age-Defying Laser?
Consult a health care professional first before using the Age-Defying Laser. In all cases, wait until the redness and swelling have dissipated. Do not treat if your skin is significantly red or swollen from a previous treatment.
Can I use it if I had botox treatments or fillers?
Consult a health care professional first if you are undergoing professional cosmetic treatments, such as a skin peel, laser resurfacing or filler injections.
Can I use it if I have tattoos or permanent make-up in the treatment area?
The Age-Defying Laser should not be used on skin that contains permanent make-up or is tattooed.
Is it safe for me to be in the sun during the treatment period?
Protect your skin by applying a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every morning. Daily sun protection will protect healthy skin created by your Age-Defying Laser to maintain results longer and help prevent new photo damage.
Can I incorporate the Age-Defying Laser within my everyday beauty/anti-ageing regime and not use the Age-Defying Purifying Cleanser and/or Age-Defying Serum? Will I see better results if using the Purifying Cleanser and Age-Defying Serum?
Yes, although we recommend using the Purifying Cleanser and the Age-Defying Serum to maximize the full benefits of your Age-Defying Laser. The Priming Cleanser preps your skin by removing makeup, sunscreen and other impurities that can interfere with the laser light. The Finishing Serum helps soothe any temporary redness or stinging that may occur with the treatment while also hydrating and brightening skin. We do not recommend the use of retinol products in conjunction with the laser, as these can cause skin irritation. Plus, if you’re using skin masks or peels, these should be used eight hours apart from your laser treatment.
