Hello members,

I recently purchased a Tria anti-aging laser. I've worked up to the second level (OUCHIE!) I'm still needing ice packs on my face after use. My question is this...I've been using a retinol product, but I've been afraid to use it since beginning Tria 3 weeks ago. Is it safe to do so? I'm so afraid I'm going to cause damage to my fragile skin. Forgive me if this has been asked and answered. The tria threads are extensive, and I couldn't find the answer even after a search. Thanks for any info you can provide.

There are a few comments on the big Tria thread that you might find helpful:

Is anyone using Retina-A during the same time period as using the Tria? Any problems as a result? I'm renewing a Retin-A prescription but not sure if I should hold off using it until the 4 week rest period.


Hi Miss Jane, I used Retin A throughout my treatment with no problems, however, I have very tough, oily, acne skin and YMMV. If I were you, I would take it very slowly - maybe once or twice a week to start - and see how your skin tolerates it. Very dry, sensitive skin seems to be a common side effect of using the Tria, so you may not be able to use the Retin A at all. Take it slow and see how it goes. Doodles

There is another small related exchange in the Tria thread that starts here: http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?p=6495931#6495931

There was also some discussion on the ReAura thread starting here http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?p=6464389#6464389 Smile
