This non-invasive treatment may help you redefine and reshape your body by improving the appearance of cellulite. It works by combining a low-level laser light with suction massage to rid the skin’s underlying tissue (dermis) of excess fat cells. The treatment also stimulates the growth of new collagen to keep your skin’s surface looking softer and smoother. The primary target of the Triactive Laser is cellulite reduction.
The treatment goal
TriActive can help reduce fat anywhere on the body where cellulite accumulates. According to TriActive’s manufacturer, one study found that more than 80 percent of people who underwent the treatment on their hips and thighs experienced significant improvement in fat and cellulite reduction. The procedure has the approval of the Food and Drug Administration.
The TriActive Procedure
The TriActive procedure, which generally takes about 45 minutes from start to finish, is completely painless. Most patients find the therapeutic massage to be very relaxing and soothing. For a day or two post-treatment, you may notice an increase in your urine output; this is the result of the lymphatic system clearing out the by-products of the dissolved fat cells.
For best results, 10-20 treatment sessions are recommended. Maintenance sessions are also recommended to keep the treated areas toned.
