Before You Go
Questions to ask your doctor:
- Will TriActive get rid of my cellulite?
- How many TriActive treatments will I need?
- How long will my TriActive treatments last?
Pre-procedure prep for TriActive: Hydrate your body before and between treatments. Drink at least eight ounces of water a day to help minimize swelling and bruising.
On the day of treatment: Avoid oily skin products the day of treatment.
What To Expect
Two hand pieces can be applied during a TriActive session: one on the face, the other on larger parts of the body. The devices are guided over the surface of your skin as you lay down on a massage-like table. Skin can be pink or swollen after the procedure.
Who should do it: TriActive is offered in medispas, the device which is operated by aestheticians and spa professionals. However, it's a good idea to make sure a licensed physician is present during treatment.
If you're interested in TriActive treatments, speak with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can ensure the procedure is carried out effectively and safely.
Duration: TriActive sessions last 30 minutes to one hour.
How Painful Is It?
Mechanical rollers apply rigorous pressure to your skin during treatment. While some have described treatments as soothing and relaxing, others find TriActive less than tolerable.
Options for anesthesia: Anesthesia is not used with TriActive.
