What is TriPollar/Skin Tightening and how does the procedure work?
TriPollar is a non-invasive RF(radio frequency) anti-aging technology that rejuvenates the skin and effectively treats wrinkles, including fine lines around the lips and eyes. An immediate, long-lasting skin tightening effect is achieved from the first treatment.
The TriPollar technology is based on focused RF energy that heats the dermis, while sophisticated algorithms ensure that the epidermis remains unharmed. The heat causes collagen fibers to contract and stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This results in immediate skin tightening and smoothing, and the appearance of younger, glowing skin.
Who is a good candidate for TriPollar/Skin Tightening?
TriPollar/ Skin Tightening is suitable for individuals who want to address mild to moderate skin laxity or sagging. The treatment is most effective for those with mild to moderate skin sagging, but may not be as suitable for severe sagging, where surgical procedures like facelifts might be more appropriate. Typically sought by individuals aged 30 and older, skin tightening procedures become more common as people experience a decrease in collagen and elastin production, contributing to sagging skin.
How soon after the treatment will I see results and can I return to my regular activities?
The timing of visible results from TriPollar or similar skin tightening treatments can vary among individuals, but some may notice initial improvements immediately after the session due to temporary collagen contraction. However, optimal and more lasting results usually develop gradually over several weeks as collagen remodeling occurs. Most people can resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment, as there is typically no downtime associated with non-invasive skin tightening procedures. Mild redness or warmth at the treated area is common but usually subsides quickly. It’s essential to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by your healthcare professional, including sun protection measures, to enhance and maintain the results.
