Acne sufferers take note; Tria has recently introduced their latest at-home innovation, the Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light. Created to target and eliminate the very source of acne bacteria, it is clinically proven to deliver clear skin with fewer, milder acne breakouts in less then 2 weeks.
Considering there have been minimal medical advancements in the world of acne since the 70’s, there was much excitement in the early 2000 with the advancements of laser and blue light technology used in dermatologist offices. And now, more affordable at-home systems to mimic similar results are available in the comfort of your home.
I don’t suffer from breakouts; sure, I have the occasional pimple here and there but nothing that warrants serious action. However, I’m no stranger to the emotional and physical trauma for those who do. My sister suffered from terrible acne in High School and regular breakouts as an adult. Accutane, Retin-A, Proactive and a variety of over-the-counter products later, she’s had moderate success over the years, but the trouble with many of these products the prescription based products are side-effects, excessive skin dryness, flaking/pealing and harsh reactions. Not to mention many of them are not preventative or feasible for sensitive skin. That said, blue light is one area she hasn’t explored and a treatment form I’m not as knowledgeable about as I’d like to be. So when I received an invitation to attend a recent presentation Tria was hosting, I jumped at the opportunity.
For starters, the research and clinical studies they performed we’re very interesting. Lined up against blue light competitors, Tria ranked highest in effectiveness and convenience—considering it’s a compact, lightweight unit, which only requires 5minutes a day for effective results. This hand-held acne device is FDA-cleared, and safe for all skin types and works to eliminate blemishes, clogged pores and acne breakouts to leave a bright and clear complexion.
It’s easy to use; just turn it on and touch the light to your face. For best results, use twice a day (on a freshly cleansed face) for 2 ½ minutes focusing the majority of the time on problematic areas of the face. The system includes the TRIA Perfecting Blue Light, Blue Light 2-month cartridge and batter charger for $245. The cartridge offers 60 days of treatment and then will need to replaced. Replacement 2-month cartridges cost $40. And the best part is results should be clear within the first few weeks, so by the end of the month if you’re not getting the results you can return it. Alternatives if it is successful, maintaining clear skin will only cost $20 a month.
I for one am excited; mainly because I received a system for attending the event and am mailing it to my sister to test. I’ll report back next month with her results and feedback!
