Body Contouring TRIPOLLAR
Over time, our skin reacts to gravity and hormonal changes by losing elasticity and volume. Skin is composed of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. The dermis contains proteins, including collagen, elastin, and other important fibers, which affect skin’s strength and elasticity. The effects of gravity and loss of hormonal support leads to a loss of supporting glycoproteins and support network, leading to accumulation of damage in the form of wrinkles and drooping and sagging skin.
Tripollar radiofrequency painlessly delivers focused RF energy to the dermis and subcutaneous fat layers through a handpiece held by your provider; the goal is to heat both superficial and deeper layers of the skin. This simultaneously stimulates adipose cells to break and leak stored fat, and activates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, leading to a tightening of the skin in the treated area. Its benefits include a significant reduction in the appearance of cellulite, tightening of lax skin (of the neck/décolletage, at the jaw line, on the stomach following childbirth), and slight volume/fat reduction in treated areas.
The benefits of tripollar are most evident when treatments are performed in a series of three on the target area, although results are noticeable with even a single treatment! This treatment is best suited for the neck, bra bulge, abdomen, upper arms, and thighs; it excels at tightening skin that has become lax and lost its tone, that may have developed loose/fatty deposits not responding to diet and exercise, and has started to thin or develop fine lines. Its results are amplified with the combination of microneedling to the treated area, or with Vanquish.
Approximately 30-45 minutes. The Tripollar treatment is not painful whatsoever! Your provider will apply glycerin over the area to be treated and then apply the handpiece, which has three rounded, smooth metal probes which gently glide over the skin’s surface while heating the tissue. Many clients report that it feels a bit like receiving a hot stone massage!
