FAQ- about TriPollar Technology
When can I expect to see results?
The majority of patients are able to see visible results difference immediately after the 1st treatment – especially following treatment on the face. However, in order to achieve long-term results, you will need to undergo several TriPollar treatment sessions.
How many sessions do I need in order to achieve long-term desired results?
Long-term results vary depending on the area to be treated and the desired result. In general, you will need to undergo between 4 and 8 treatments on average. The number of treatments sessions is determined according to your specific needs by the physician or aesthetic professional. In order to sustain the results, it is important to maintain a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and exercise.
Can I undergo more than one TriPollar treatment session per week?
It is recommended to undergo no more than one TriPollar treatment per week to obtain optimal results. Collagen production and fat metabolism are processes that take time; therefore a complete TriPollar treatment should be scheduled over several few weeks with an interval of one week between sessions.
What does a TriPollar treatment feel like?
A TriPollar treatment feels like a warm massage. It is pleasant and pain-free. Some patients even report falling asleep during treatments. The treatment lasts an average of between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on the treatment area.
What do I need to do in order to maintain the result?
In order to maintain the results it is important to maintain a lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise. In addition, it is recommended to undergo maintenance treatments every 4 to 8 weeks to prolong and enhance the results.
Do TriPollar treatments work on all skin colors?
TriPollar treatments are suitable for all skin colors, including dark and pigmented skin. The treatment is based on Radio Frequency (RF) energy: energy that produces heat in the target area. Unlike lasers or other optical energy-based devices, RF is "color blind" meaning that it has no affinity to skin pigmentation, such as melanin or hemoglobin.
How do I know if TriPollar treatments are right for me?
In general, if you are healthy, then you are a suitable candidate for TriPollar treatments. There are a very few specific treatment contraindications such as: pregnancy, superficial metal implants in the treatment areas, and a pacemaker. Your physician or aesthetic professional will confirm your suitability after taking a brief medical history.
Can I continue my normal routine immediately after treatment sessions?
Your text...After TriPollar treatments, you can immediately return to your daily routine. It is a "walk-in, walk-out" procedure with no downtime.
Is the TriPollar treatment suitable for women after pregnancy?
TriPollar treatments are suitable for women who are post-pregnancy for circumference reduction and tightening of loose skin. However, it is recommended to start the treatment only between 1 and 3 months after delivery, in accordance with each individual's post-partum recovery.
FAQ- about TriLipo Technology
What is TriLipo?
TriLipo is Pollogen's proprietary technology which combines two kinds of energies, TriLipo radiofrequency (RF) and TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) which are emitted simultaneously by applicators on the Maximus system. The TRiLipo DMA energy causes the muscles to contract and push up against the skin's adipose fat layer. The "pushing up" force created by the muscles along with the "pushing down" mechanical force of the applicator moving on the skin enhances drainage of the fatty acids released by the TriLipo RF heat energy the Maximus. The muscle activation also helps spread the heat generated by the TriLipo RF evenly. Contraction of the muscles also improves venous return and accelerates removal of metabolic byproducts released due to the heating effect of the RF energy. In facial treatments, the TriLipo DMA energy enables toning of the muscles and lifting of the superficial muscular system (SMAS) underlying the facial skin.
Is TriLipo technology safe?
TriLipo technology is very safe. RF has been used in medicine for over 75 years and in aesthetic medicine, it has been used for more than 10 years. The Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) parameters are very safe, even at the highest settings the DMA cannot cause injury or damage to muscles.
Which medical device has TriLipo technology?
Only the Maximus system by Pollogen includes the proprietary (patent pending) TriLipo technology.
What does a TriLipo treatment feel like?
The treatment sensation has two aspects. Since the TriLipo technology combines RF with Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA), the sensation is a result of both technologies. The RF effect will be a heating effect of the skin. You should feel a very pleasant heating of the area, similar to a warm massage.
The DMA has various power levels and the sensation is different per DMA strength. The practitioner will adjust the DMA parameters to enable a very tolerable treatment. DMA at low energy levels feels like bubbles bursting on the skin surface. As the DMA parameters are increased, the sensation changes to a sensation similar to rubber bands snapping in the treated area and higher DMA parameters will induce a sensation of real muscle contraction.
What is the down time after a TriLipo treatment session?
There is no down time after a TriLipo treatment; you can resume your regular activity immediately after the treatment.
What does the patient need to do to prepare for a TriLipo treatment?
There are no special requirements or preparations for a TriLipo treatment.
How does TriLipo technology treat cellulite?
Cellulite is visible as a result of enlarged fat cells that are under the skin (adipose fat) pushing up against the weakened dermis. Cellulite is a condition associated with poor metabolism and with hormonal levels. TriLipo technology treats cellulite by a combined effect.
The TriLipo RF induces thermal heating of the adipose fat, increasing metabolism in the tissue. The increased heat induces a natural process of fat breakdown in the fat cells. The byproducts of fat breakdown are released from the fat cells to the extracellular matrix (ECM) and fat cells shrink in size. In addition, the thermal effect also affects the dermis by inducing an immediate effect of collagen tightening along with a long term effect of neocollagenesis (generation of new collagen). The combined effect of reduced size of fat cells along with "strengthening" of the dermis enables an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
The TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) energy that is emitted simultaneously with the TriLipo RF energy increases circulation and improves lymphatic drainage of the released byproducts of fat breakdown. The DMA also tones the underlying muscles, adding to the general improvement of the treated area.
How many TriLipo treatments are recommended?
Typically, the standard protocol for these treatments is 6 sessions. However, if needed, more treatments can be added according to severity of the condition. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 1-3 months to maintain and improve the treatment results.
How long is the TriLipo treatment?
The treatment duration for each body area varies, with most treatments taking from 30 minutes (for smaller areas) to 1 hour (for larger areas).
How soon can I see results?
Results are different per body area and per person. In general, facial treatments will usually produce a nice immediate tightening and improvement of skin texture. Loose skin on the abdomen can feel tighter immediately after the first session. However, in most cases it takes several treatments to notice long lasting results.
