I am glad I can do a Flash and Go vs Tria post because there are some close similarities as well as some huge differences. When I originally started looking at doing serious home hair removal for myself I looked at a lot of different products. Flash and Go vs Tria was one of the biggest questions I had.
I’ll start off with the differences before going over some of the similarities. The biggest difference in my mind is the way that you use the Flash and Go vs Tria. The Flash and Go is much better because it covers a much larger surface with each flash. Also the area that it covers is rectangular in shape. The Tria system also uses flash but it does it in a smaller circular shape. It’s much easier to cover skin with a larger rectangle shape than a smaller circle shape because each flash is supposed to slightly overlap.
Having a rectangle to cover the body is much easier because they naturally fit together easier than circles. Also I didn’t like the fact that Tria claims to be the only FDA approved at home hair removal system. Flash and Go, Silk’n, No No and other products are also FDA approved but don’t claim to be the only one that is like Tria. I personally don’t like companies that lie like that.
The Flash and Go hair removal system has a skin senor directly underneath the light. This makes sure that with every single flash that it won’t burn the skin. The Tria too has a light sensor on it but it is on the very bottom of the handle. This means that I would’ve either had to flip it over every time I was going to use it to check my skin or just hope I didn’t get burned. That is a huge difference in my opinion, the Flash and Go makes sure that my skin doesn’t get hurt in the process and Tria doesn’t.
There are some similarities too. One thing that is similar about the Flash and Go vs Tria is that they both are safe to use on the face, body and bikini line. That’s good that they can both do that but the Flash and Go uses less flashes to cover the same amount of area as the Tria. That means that the Flash and Go saves me more time as well as saves me from buying cartridges more often.
The Tria has a pulse counter which the Flash and Go does not. But the Flash and Go lets you know when you’re almost ready for a new cartridge and the Tria does not. The Flash and Go is good for 3,000 flashes which will last a very long time. Also the Tria requires you to treat every single week whereas the Flash and Go says to do it only every two weeks. I think it’s pretty obvious which one is more powerful and does a better job.
I am very glad that I went with the Flash and Go and not the Tria hair removal system. The last time I checked the Tria was $520 after discounts. The Flash and Go is only $300. That is about half the cost for results that are twice as good. It’s clear to me that the Flash and Go is a much superior system, plus I was able to try it risk free for a whole month.
