Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is TriPollar RF?
A: TriPollar Radio Frequency (RF) technology is an innovative proprietary 3rd generation RF technology developed by Pollogen Ltd. TriPollar harnesses the inherent benefits of RF technology and overcomes the limitations of previous mono-polar and bi-polar technologies. It is simple to use and extremely efficient. TriPollar treatments deliver immediate visible facial contouring effects from the first treatment – and long-lasting aesthetic results without surgery or downtime.
Q: Is the TriPollar technology safe?
A: TriPollar technology is FDA cleared and has been proved safe and effective in clinical studies. RF has been used in medicine for over 75 years. In aesthetic medicine, RF has been used for more than 10 years.
Q: What is Radiofrequency (RF) technology and how does it work?
A: Radiofrequency, in the context of aesthetic applications, is a general method to heat deep skin layers by delivering High Frequency (HF) electrical current via electrodes into the body. Body cells do not interpret High Frequency electrical current as electricity but rather as an energy source. The skin layers act as resistors to the HF electrical current and depending on their resistance they heat up to varying degrees. The heat which is generated in the dermis and subcutaneous layers is responsible for the clinical outcome.
Q: What is the dierence between TriPollar, mono-polar and bi-polar RF?
A: Mono-polar, the first generation of RF technology, uses one electrode to deliver electrical energy and a return pad connected to the leg or back to close the electrical circuit. The electric current passes through a large part of the body so that there is no control over the depth of penetration and area affected. The next generation, Bi-polar technology, uses two electrodes on the treatment applicator, with the current flowing between the two electrodes. This confines the treatment area somewhat, but still does not achieve effective treatment focus. Since both Monopolar and Bipolar RF technologies are not focused, they usually require higher energy levels to achieve clinical results. The high energy heats the skin that is near the electrodes. This can cause pain and a higher risk of burns and skin damage. In addition, these older technologies require cooling mechanisms to mitigate these risks, which result in less efficient heating of the skin layers.
