I don’t think I had ever hated my skin as much as I did back in January of this year. I’ve always had a skin issue, even as a teen, and never went a day without my CoverGirl Clean Liquid Foundation and the matching powder. Years went on, and I had cystic acne issues that left scars and other types of skin problems that left channels under my cheek on the left side. The last thing I needed was large pores, which popped up in my early thirties along with a slick of oil that covered my face by 3 pm every day. Needless to say, taking care of my skin was a constant struggle and I’d never go in public without a full face of foundation and powder on top.
When I started working at Nordstrom, I was exposed to skincare worth thousands of dollars per jar, and I was certain that one of those jars would work miracles on my red and irritated skin. Even a $1200 jar of moisturizer couldn’t save me. I wasn’t seeing any improvement or even a change in the feel of my skin. It felt the same every single day.
I saved some money to purchase a package deal of Clear + Brilliant laser treatments. Costing over $1300 for 6 sessions, I was sure something was bound to happen for me. After 1 year of treatments, I saw no huge difference in my skin at all. Even the pimples were still appearing.
I started working for a brand called Tria, and I received several products to try that used Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Technology to stimulate my collagen production the same way that my Clear + Brillant treatments were doing at a fraction of the cost! The product I use is called Tria SmoothBeauty Laser, and it really does work on all of my skin issues.

Progress report! It has only been less than 4 weeks since I started using my @triabeauty SmoothBeauty Anti-Aging lasers and my transformation is unreal! 🤩I've hated my skin since high school–large pores, acne, uneven color and texture has been my skin's life for many years. Now, I don't even wear foundation or concealer most days. Living my #laserlife! ♥️#antiaging #younger #skincare #beauty #transformation #throwbackthursday #acne #wrinkles #glow #skingoals #igbeauty #triabeauty #trialaser
As you can see in the photo above, the laser cleared up my acne, which was a surprise since it is not marketed towards acne sufferers. It also tightened my pores, evened out my skin tone and just smoothed the surface out so nicely that my foundation pumps became less and less. Some days I didn’t wear foundation at all!
HOW I USE MY SMOOTHBEAUTY LASER
Simply watch my video above to see how I use my lasers. I also started using the SmoothBeauty Eye Wrinkle Laser as well as Tria’s luxurious Nourishing Eye Renewal Cream on a daily basis. Once per month, I use the Nuvesse Firming Masks and serum on my face to give myself a big hyaluronic acid boost to plump up my skin.
Here are a few tips to get the most out of your SmoothBeauty Laser treatments:
- Treat your skin with the laser 5 days per week for 12 weeks. It’s a big commitment, but think about all of the money you are saving on Botox and in-office laser treatments!
- Follow your laser treatments with a good hydrating serum, like Tria’s Finishing Serum or Anna Sui’s Hydration Charger Serum.
- Use an intensive hydrating monthly mask since laser treatments may dry your skin a bit.
