- Facial contouring.
- Reduce unwanted fat deposits.
- Cellulite reduction.
- Improves the appearance of stretch marks.
How does tripollar work?
It uses a unique hand held device that delivers controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy to the skin surface and to the subcutaneous fat layers. Optimum energy is delivered by electrodes which is limited to the treatment area. This device is suitable for use both on face and the body. Procedure usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.
Older technologies caused pain and higher risk of skin damage. This relatively newer technology is safer and requires shorter treatment durations. It has a control system which prevents overheating , thus the need for skin cooling which was required with the older technologies is eliminated. Moreover, fewer treatment sessions are required as compared to the older technologies.
This procedure shrinks the fat cells in the subcutaneous layer by increasing their metabolism. The fat cells are forced by the heat to release their fatty acids which are eliminated by the blood and lymph system. It can be used to treat excess pockets of fat on the stomach, hips and thighs and tightens saggy skin caused by weight loss and pregnancy. Multiple sessions are done on weekly basis. In this way the desired result which is fat and cellulite reduction is achieved.
Tripollar treatment increases the tone and elasticity of the skin by regenerating collagen fibers in the dermis layer of skin. As they are heated the collagen fibers are pulled closer resulting in immediately tightened skin. It also increases blood flow to the treatment area. By this tighter, younger looking skin is achieved. It enables treatment of fine lines and delicate areas of the face without causing any damage. These delicate areas include around the lips and around the eyes.
So this is a safe, comfortable and painless procedure requiring multiple treatment sessions to get the desired results.
