TriFractional clinical FAQs
What conditions does TriFractional technology treat?
TriFractional technology is intended for treatment of wrinkles and for skin resurfacing. It is also very effective for treatment of acne scars, lax skin, reducing pore size, treatment of facial discoloration (hyper pigmentation or hypo pigmentation), treatment of stretch marks and general brightening of skin tone.
How long do results of TriFractional treatment last?
Results for laxity or wrinkles typically have a longer lasting effect, but as the aging process continues, it is recommended to have a TriFractional maintenance treatment for preventative measures.
How deeply does the TriFractional treatment affect the skin?
TriFractional treatment affects the epidermis and dermis. The depth of penetration and the depth of effect of the TriFractional treatment depend on the power used.
Due to tissue physiology characteristics, at the skin’s surface, the result is mostly micro-ablation. Inside the tissue in deeper epidermis and dermis, RF creates more diffused effect of coagulation and necrosis. RF density is further decreased deeper and lateral, resulting in “thermally activated” dermis. Porcine (pig) skin biopsies showed effect to a depth of about 0.5 mm.
Is there a pulse limitation on the TriFractional tip?
The TriFractional disposable tip does not have a pulse limitation, unlike some of the other fractional products. Each treatment tip is for a single treatment and should be disposed of after the treatment session.
How is the TriFractional disposable tip cleaned?
The disposable tip should not be cleaned. If, during a treatment, the tip accumulates debris on the treatment grid, it is advised to replace the tip.
Can the TriFractional disposable tip be re-used?
The TriFractional tip is intended for a single treatment use. The tip should not be used even for treatment of the same patient as there might be debris on the tip and in addition, cleaning the tip might cause damage to the pins (electrodes).
How many passes on the same area should be performed during a TriFractional treatment?
The TriFractional treatment protocol calls for only one pass on an area during a treatment. You can adjust the treatment power level according to the treated area and according to the initial skin response.
Should we perform over-lapping “stamping” when performing the TriFractional treatment?
When performing a TriFractional treatment, you should avoid overlapping pulses during treatment as the overlapping might result in areas of over treatment.
What is the TriLipo MED protocol?
The TriLipo MED protocol combines TriFractional treatments with the TriLipo technology treatments. The treatment protocol is as follows:
- Week 1: TriFractional (A3F)
- Week 3: TriLipo (focused RF + DMA)
- Week 5: TriFractional (A3F)
- Week 7: TriLipo (focused RF + DMA)
