pollogen_legendsystem2TriPollar is a non-invasive procedure that uses 3rd generation radiofrequency energy to sculpt the body and minimize the appearance of cellulite. This non-invasive procedure effectively works into the subcutaneous skin layers, eliminating pockets of fat and creating improved body contours with no discomfort or downtime afterward. Results can be seen even after the first treatment session and can be long-lasting without more invasive surgical options.

The radiofrequency technology used in TriPollar is concentrated to a single treatment area, unlike previous RF treatments that were not focused. The ability to channel the energy allows for more powerful treatments without concern over damaging the skin. In addition, previous RF treatments have required cooling systems to reduce risk of burning during the procedure; a non-concern for TriPollar technology.

In a treatment that many patients liken to a warm, soothing massage, TriPollar effectively tightens and firms skin, reduces fat deposits and minimizes the cottage cheese appearance of cellulite. TriPollar technology uses three to six electrodes to control and focus the energy, which offers greater concentration of the energy to the treatment area than other types of RF treatments. Depth of penetration can be adjusted to accommodate the specific needs of each patient.

Benefits of TriPollar:

  • Tighter, firmer skin
  • Smoother body contours
  • Reduced body circumference
  • Elimination of isolated pockets of body fat
  • Minimized appearance of cellulite
  • Improved appearance of stretch marks

Patients will often see visible improvement after a single TriPollar treatment. However, a series of treatment sessions may be recommended to ensure best possible results from the procedure.

How does TriPollar Work?

TriPollar treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and take less than one hour to complete. Glycerin is applied to the treatment area and a handheld device is used to deliver the RF energy below the surface of the skin. Patients feel a mild feeling of warmth, which many describe as soothing and relaxing. Some patients even fall asleep during the procedure!

After the procedure, patients may return to work and regular activities right away. The skin in the treated area might be slightly pink for a few hours after treatment, but patients do not report any discomfort or pain after TriPollar. Preliminary results may be seen as soon as the procedure is finished.

To achieve desired results, a series of treatment sessions is usually recommended. Once those results are obtained, periodic sessions will help to maintain results over the long term.
