TriPollar technology is an advanced 3rd generation radio-frequency (RF) based solution for facial and body contouring. TriPollar technology is unique in that it harnesses the inherent benefits of RF technology and overcomes the limitations of previous mono-polar and bio-polar technologies- it is less painful, safer and more effective.
Patented TriPollar technology focuses the RF current between 3 or 6 electrodes and limits the energy to the treatment area only. The current flows between the electrodes and a sophisticated algorithm controls the polarity and activation of each electrode. As a result, the depth of penetration is variable allowing for the simultaneous heating of both the dermis and hypodermis (subcutaneous) skin layers, without injuring the epidermis.
Since the RF energy is highly focused, less power is required with TriPollar than with other RF technologies (mono-polar and bi-polar). The control algorithms prevent overheating of the skin and eliminate the need for skin and applicator cooling. This ensures a superior safety profile and a virtually painless treatment.
TriPollar technology was first introduced outside of the United States in 2006 and has since been used on millions of satisfied patients in over 60 countries. Eight peer review papers validating the safety and efficacy of the technology have been published and the technology has been showcased in global conferences by leading aesthetic physicians.
