TriActive is a cosmetic device that treats cellulite and tightens skin. TriActive is a non-invasive treatment that uses mechanical massagers, infrared energy, and six low-energy diode lasers to physically break up trapped fat, improve blood circulation, and increase collagen production. After treatment, skin contracts, temporarily banishing cellulite.

What It's Good For

TriActive is primarily used to reduce cellulite around the thighs and midsection, though the handpiece is also small enough to treat saggy skin and unwanted fat deposits on the face and upper body. The neck is one of these regions.

TriActive may also enhance the results of liposuction by tightening the skin. Men who use TriActive are primarily concerned with excess weight around their waistline.

Who it works for: TriActive is a good option for individuals who already maintain a healthy diet and workout routine, and are within range of their ideal weight. The younger and more elastic a patient's skin is, the better the outcome of TriActive treatments will be.

Recommended age range: There are no age restrictions for TriActive, though for best results skin should still retain its elasticity (which starts to decline in the 50s.)

When will I see results?: Noticeable improvements of cellulite and skin quality take between five and seven sessions to see. Most patients achieve the best results sometime between the tenth and fifteenth sessions.

How long it lasts: Although frequent TriActive sessions can produce long-lasting results, cellulite can't be eliminated permanently. Continual TriActive treatments may prevent its return, however.

Key benefits of TriActive: TriActive lessens the appearance of cellulite and improves skin texture without the need for surgery.

Licensed uses: TriActive was approved by the FDA in 2005 for cellulite reduction.
