Cellulite is the cohesion’s of adipose tissue (fat cells) lumping together. The bad news about Cellulite is that it comes in all shapes and sizes. It appears all over the body and often times is not attributed to the size and shape of the patient. 85% of females have Cellulite and of the 15% of women who do not, most of those woman believe they too in fact do have cellulite as well.
The Cynosure TriActive is one of the few technologies FDA Approved for the reduction of cellulite. The Cynosure TriActive technology is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to improve the look of cellulite. The TriActive device smoothes the appearance of skin thus creating that toned and tight look. The laser energy is used to stimulate the skin’s fibroblasts and increase collagen production. The result is improved skin and cellulite appearance and skin rejuvenation.
How the TriActive Works
The TriActive device combines 3 different treatment techniques in one procedure. There is a suction massage which improves the circulation of the skin and improves lymphatic drainage. The second is the laser energy which heats the underlying skin to produce collagen and improve skin texture. The third is a contact cooling technique to maintain patient comfort.
A recent study conducted at our center, showed that the TriActive laser and massage components improved the appearance of cellulite in 83% of subjects as compared to 17% improvement for massage only”, said Kathryn Frew, MD, of the JUVA Skin and Laser Center in New York City.
In addition to temporarily improving the appearance of cellulite, TriActive treatments have also been shown to temporarily relieve minor pain and muscle spasms, improve circulation and be used in conjunction with liposuction and other plastic surgery procedures.
We now offer the TriActive LaserDermology System throughout North America. Originally developed by laser scientists in Italy, it has been in use worldwide for the past four years,” said Michael R. Davin, Cynosure’s CEO. “It compliments the other products in our cosmetic laser line and helps us better serve our markets, which include the thousands of aesthetic medicine practices and the more than 6000 day spas in the United States who do not necessarily have an associated physician relationship.
