Does the Tria (or other) home use anti-aging lasers really work?
So here’s the bottom line on these ……..just my opinion. In order to make these home use lasers safe enough that people won’t be constantly burning themselves or causing pigment problems with them (think use over potentially thousands of people), they have to make them “safe.”
Safe means, in this area of lasers, that these home-use lasers have very little or almost no power, because otherwise people would hurt themselves with it and sue the company …….clearly not a desired outcome.
So……if you are content to spend a moderate amount of time and money to see little or no visible results, you may be fine to buy it. You would be buying it mostly in the hope that it will have a preventive effect and there is some data/science to support this concept. It’s just that you’d have to use it consistently over many months/years to know if this was actually a good strategy for you as an individual. There also may be adverse side effects to these devices that just haven’t come to light yet.
I hope this helps, Dr. I
