What is TriPollar Radio Frequency technology: Radiofrequency (RF) is a technique that stimulates collagen production by safely delivering high frequency electrical currents to the surface of the skin. The electrical currents generate heat, at a predetermined temperature, to increase collagen growth within the superficial and deeper layers of the skin.This increase in collagen helps to tighten the skin, resulting in an improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye as well.
How can radiofrequency treatments help dry eyes? About 80% of dry eye syndrome is caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).
Meibomian gland dysfunction occurs when the meibomian glands become blocked or clogged by thick secretions. This impacts the normal flow of oil into the tear film and affects the quantity and quality of your tears— the cause of your dry eye symptoms.
When RF is applied to the skin adjacent to the eyes, the heat melts the thick oil secretions clogging the meibomian glands. This enables improved oil flow into the tears. Radiofrequency also helps to reduce inflammation around the eyes, which may be contributing to your eye condition. Four treatments are the golden standard when it comes to TriPollar RF dry eye solutions, some patients may require more depending on the seriousness of their condition.
This treatment provides dramatic lift and firmness with no discomfort or recovery time. It offers an alternative to invasive procedures for those who want improved facial structure and smoothness. Lumenis triLift improves all three of the main causes of facial aging: gravitational sagging, volume loss, and sun damage of the skin.
TriLift combines three different types of technology in sequence to produce dramatic results. It begins with Dynamic Muscle Stimulation (DMSt). This electrical energy triggers your facial muscles to contract repeatedly. This effectively provides a workout for your facial muscles, and like any other muscles, they become more sculpted and defined. These facial muscles will also shorten, and through their attachments to the skin will shape and hold your skin in a more lifted position, reducing the nasolabial and marionette lines. The “bulked up” facial muscles will also provide an increase in volume in the mid-face area of the upper cheeks. Increased volume in this area has a strong rejuvenative effect.
TriPollar RF, the second technology, uses customizable hand pieces that send radiofrequency (RF) energy pulses into the skin. This energy triggers skin cells called fibroblasts to increase their collagen production. New collagen firms and strengthens the skin, restoring natural volume and support. Third, triFX uses microneedling to deliver RF energy deeply into the skin for even more intensive collagen development. This new collagen makes the dermal layer thicker, restoring youthful-looking contours and the appearance of healthy younger looking skin.
TriLift™ treats three tissue layers to achieve a more youthful appearance. TriPollar RF and triFX treat the epidermis, the outermost layers of skin, and a deeper layer called the dermis. DMSt acts on the muscle layer beneath the skin, giving your features a more toned, contoured look. Studies found that skin looks up to 80% smoother with 30% fewer wrinkles and three times more hyaluronic acid, a natural plumping molecule.
