As I get older I begin to appreciate the idea of devices like the Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser more and more. What is it they say? With age comes wisdom. I think the older you get the more skeptical you become of your skincare. There are so many anti-aging lotions, potions, and creams out there for your eyes but as the years past and you try many of them you start exhausting solutions for those pesky eye bags or those finer lines under your eyes. Perhaps you even lose hope.
I’m not going to say I’ve completely exhausted solutions to treat finer lines, puffiness, and just general under eye aging but I will say I’ve tried a lot and many disappoint. It’s just a fact that there is no secret potion that acts like the fountain of youth to erase those fine lines.
For me, so long as I’m hydrating as much as possible my finer lines look good. But as the Winter approaches and my skin gets even drier it can prove difficult to retain much needed moisture around the delicate area of my eyes. Being exposed to the cold, perhaps not sleeping enough, or even not drinking enough water makes my finer lines look worst and worst.
I’m kinda reached a point in my fine line life where I just wanted to move past eye creams and try something more.
More came in the form of the Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser.
The Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser is a handheld fractional laser, much like a dermatologist would use in their office, which acts penetrate the skin’s surface to create microscopic zones of cellular disruption. Your skin’s natural healing process springs into action to heal the disrupted area by generating collagen and elastin which acts as a cellular renewal process so finer lines and wrinkles around your eyes look smoother and softened.
Dermatologists use fractional laser technology in their offices to treat facial lines and wrinkles but Tria’s little lightweight gadget allows you to do it all at home by treating your eyes daily for a few minutes a day. So no expensive trips to your Dermatologist and no having to schedule another appointment in your likely already busy day.
The thing I noticed first about the Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser was the size. I have no idea what I was expecting but it wasn’t something so lightweight and portable. I have lipsticks that are taller than this little unit. I was delighted with the lightweight feel of the device and the fact it was completely easy to travel with should I need to and of course, easy to store. As I said I had no idea what to expect but I was kinda sorta expecting some sort of massive device. I was every so happy it was small and compact.
I’ve been using this nearly 8 weeks now and I find you have to be diligent about the treatments to get the best results. I’m one of those people that gives up on something if I’m not seeing instant results. With this laser you do have to make a commitment for it to work.
To use the device you’ll press and hold the power light and a green light will appear on the side of the unit. This light turns purple when you have good contact with your skin and will switch back to green if you do not. You want to place to tip of the laser against your lower eye area and gently smooth it under and up towards the side of your eye in a half moon shape stopping near the side of your eye. Obviously you don’t want to use it on your eye lids and don’t point the laser directly into your eyes. TREAT AROUND THE EYE AREA! Very important 🙂
The unit vibrates as you move it around your eye area. The nice thing is the unit has a timer of 1 minute so you don’t have to keep track of the time you’re using it. After a minute the purple light will turn off, the device will vibrant on and off several times, and turn off. Now you can move on to your next eye.
The laser should be used once a night, seven days a week, for eight weeks to see results according to the brand. Word to the wise if you’re sensitive you might want to try it on your arm first. To me it feels like a little tiny barely there pinch as you move it around your eye area and it has a warming feeling. I have fairly resilient skin and I’m not sensitive to the warm and pinching didn’t feel bad or uncomfortable to me. I did experience redness after and felt slightly uncomfortable so a soothing eye cream helped. Tria actually includes a sample of their Nourishing Renewal Eye Cream which I quite liked. It absorbs easily and soothes the treated area.
With a week of use under my belt I felt confident using the laser and aside from a burning sensation, pinching, and the slight redness I felt good about the treatments. By the end of week two I did notice my eyes were considerably drier than normal and this actually got worst as I continued my treatments. I noticed a bit of flakiness around my eyes as well which I treated with Vaseline. It was at the six week mark that I can I saw a dramatic improvement in dryness. My eye cream seemed to be absorbing more fully at this point and my eye area looked considerably smoother as well as my lines weren’t as deep (see below photo). I wouldn’t say my fine lines are completely erased as I entered week six but I will say the area looked smoother. My concealer wasn’t creasing into every single nook and cranny at this point and dare I say I felt like my eyes weren’t as dry as they normally are.
I’m looking forward to seeing how things turn out by week eight. So far I’m excited about the changes I’m seeing under my eyes using the Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser. I have a major addiction to beauty gadgets and ones that actually work and are beneficial to my skin, well, that’s a no brainer as a great item to have in my stash right? So far the Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser is proving to be a pretty darn handy gadget to have around.
