The TriPollar™ by Pollogen effectively treats cellulite and resistant fat at the root of the problem. TriPollar’s unique configuration selectively heats the fat cells under the skin without adversely affecting the surrounding tissues, wherein increasing metabolism and secretion of liquid fat. At the same time, TriPollar simultaneously heats deep and superficial layers of fat, doing so by combining the dual effects of mono-polar radiofrequency RF and bi-polar RF in one applicator.

TriPollar RF Technology selectively increases the temperature of fat cells doing so simultaneously in the deep and superficial layers of fat. This increases metabolism and the release of liquid fat from the fat cells

For Facial Rejuvenation after a TriPollar™ treatment, the fat cells shrink in size and skin is restored closer to original form, reducing or eliminating the double chin or flabby jowling appearance . This jowling appearance is also improved by the localized heating which causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts thereby accelerating the production of new Collagen and Elastin down the line. This strengthens the dermis and tightens loose, saggy skin especially on the neck and jowl area. The treatments are accumulative i.e. the results of each previous treatment is improved with each additional treatment. Each treatment stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the major support structure for the skin and reduces the fat content of the skin

A double chin and flabby jowls does not necessarily come with age and these signs are usually recognised when one sees oneself in profile or in photographs. Double chins or neck waddles are the result of excess fat or hanging loose skin or both. At Skin Renewal we offer non surgical combinations of treatments such as TriPollar, Titan, Velashape and RAIL-THIN that reduce fat cells and tighten skin on the face and body. The sooner these procedures are started to improve collagen levels, the better the long term outcome.

On the Face TriPollar treats:

  • Double chins
  • Fat or Flabby cheeks
  • Facial sculpturing
  • Sagging jowls
  • Crepey necks

Studies have shown that over time, adipose tissue becomes lazy and begin storing excess fat. As one age, the skin’s elasticity declines dramatically, and gravity constantly pulls on our bodies. Today’s savvy patients and consumers are looking for treatments and services that work in concert with their home products to provide more discernible results for anti-ageing . The good news is that the latest treatments involve combinations that are more effective than ever and treatments should be started before the sagging and double chins deteriorate to a level which is more resistant to treatment. TriPollar™ stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the major support structure for the skin and TriPollar also reduces the fat content of the skin. If thirty -year-olds + opt for preventative non invasive procedures, a new trend will develop resulting in a much different type of ageing than older generations

There are different types of skin and we all age differently. No matter how gorgeous we are and how well we look after our skin, the inevitable ageing will take place. One can maintain “a perfect skin” by keeping one’s skin firm and taught with collagen to avoid the inevitable sagging that takes place over time. Tighter firmer skin supports the face and prevents the other soft tissues in our face and the muscles from sagging.

The new concept today is to start with tightening and collagen rejuvenation treatments early so as to and avoid or postpone surgical solutions for as long as possible. With TriPollar 6- 8 treatments are needed one week to 2 weeks apart.

Skin Renewal is excited to offer the next step in multi-modality therapy in treating facial rejuvenation. We call it Skin Renewal’s 3D Skin Rejuvenation, our signature non surgical face lift. Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it’s not sufficient. 3 D Skin Rejuvenation™ is one of the most effective non ablative skin rejuvenation solutions available and involves combining three clinical applications viz. Titan, Photo Genesis and Laser Genesis Separately each clinical application presents a powerful solution for the most in demand, fastest growing procedures with no downtime.

At Skin Renewal TriPollar is commonly performed with 3D Skin Rejuvenation™, Lipodissolve, Transdermal mesotherapy and Carboxytherapy treatments for best non surgical face lifting results. At Skin Renewal, with combination treatments every 2 weeks, in 3 months we can take any skin and make it into great skin: luminous, smooth, blemish free and tight

On the face 6 to 8 treatments are necessary every 1 to 2 weeks. Maintaining “The perfect skin” isn’t a sprint — it's a marathon .Rather than waiting until their problems are bothersome again, patients must appreciate that maintenance goes a long way and a TriPollar treatment every 4 to 8 weeks will help maintain results.

Luminous, smooth, blemish free and tight

With the TriPollar™ treatments, the prospects of more defined cheek bones and a sleeker jaw line are all now possible

As best results are seen with after 6 to 8 treatments every client is provided with a fully customised yearlong solution dependent on the patient’s age, relevant skin problem, budget and expectations. The effects of each treatment is accumulative meaning that the results of each previous treatment is improved with each additional treatment and the best results come down the line when new collagen that is stimulated remodels and a further tightening effect is noticed.

At Skin Renewal thousands of TriPollar™ treatments have been administered to our patients with great results with virtually no side effects. The only patients who cannot be treated are pregnant females or patients with pace makers.

Yes, TriPollar safely treats all skin types without pain or down-time. It can tighten skin and improve skin texture in a series of 6 to 8 treatments
