Radio Frequency Treatments including:
- Tripolar – Fat Lipolysis
- Hybrid & Trifractional – skin tightening
- The Dermis and Hypodermal connective tissue contain Fibroblasts – cells that maintain skin structure by constantly producing new collagen and other structural proteins
- The number of Fibroblasts in the skin is reduced with age and their metabolism slows down
- Effective heating of skin tissue results in:
- Contraction of existing collagen fibers
- Production of new collagen at an accelerated pace due to Fibroblasts’ increased metabolism

How does it work?
TriPollar™ is marketed as 3rd generation RF technology that simultaneously combines the effects of mono and bi-polar radio frequency in a single treatment.
TriPollar’s key advantage is that it utilises three or more poles/electrodes which it is claimed allows for greater focusing of the RF energy and a broader RF wave density which means that it can achieve variable depths of penetration into the target tissue being treated, (both superficial and deep) giving a more uniform result, according to the manufacturers. Collagen in the tissue is heated and stimulated to create an immediate visible contraction and lifting effect, followed by remodelling with new and accelerated collagen production in the deeper layers over time.
It also claims to be virtually painless, with only a mild heating sensation being felt, meaning that it requires no contact cooling to the skin during treatment.
How long does it last?
Results are said to be visible right from the first treatment and can last for months to years if maintained. It also depends on the chronological ageing of the patients and their life style.
According to the manufacturer, however, ongoing maintenance every 4 – 8 weeks could be required.
Side effects & risks:
- Redness and warmth in the treated area for an hour or so after treatment.
- Swelling that may last from 24 to 48 hours after the treatment.
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why patients should not undergo this treatment.
Although there is no evidence that this treatment is harmful for pregnant women, you would generally be advised to wait until after you have given birth before embarking upon a course of treatment.
People with electrical devices e.g., pacemakers, or metal implants in the treatments area cannot undergo treatments.
Patients with current cancer or cancer history, especially skin cancer or pre-malignant moles.
A treatment session can be expected to last about 10 – 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated, and are usually recommended once every week with an average of 4 – 8 sessions in a treatment programme, followed by ongoing maintenance to prolong the results
