Skin Tightening Description

Over time, as we grow older, our skin loses its firmness and strength, leading to wrinkles, laxity, facial hollows. Collagen is the skin’s primary structural support — it’s a protein that ensures your skin remains firm and taut. However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce new collagen fibers is compromised, drawing your skin downwards due to gravity, thereby leading to a sagging appearance. The continued accumulation of wrinkles, sagging skin, and laxity eventually make you look old.

RevIVe MedSpa & Wellness uses TriPollar radiofrequency to tighten the skin tissues and encourage collagen production, reversing the effects of age and hormonal changes on your body. We use the Tripollar radiofrequency device to tighten the skin tissues in your body and face.

Skin Tightening with TriPollar

Description

TriPollar is a collection of devices that use radiofrequency energy for skin tightening. The device delivers focused radiofrequency energy to the dermis and subcutaneous fat layers, heating the epidermis and deeper dermal layers of the skin. The radiofrequency energy simultaneously breaks down the adipose fat tissues and encourages collagen production. As such, the gradual loss of subcutaneous fat tissues and collagen production tighten your skin tissues, reversing the effects of age. Tripollar also reverses skin laxity caused by childbirth, hormonal changes, and other factors.

Procedure

Skin tightening with TriPollar is a quick and painless procedure that concludes in 30 to 45 minutes. The procedure starts with a comprehensive consultation with the nurse practitioner, who carefully examines your skin tissues, reviews your health history, and discusses your goals. They choose the ideal TriPollar device and adjust it to address your specific concerns. The provider applies glycerin to the treatment areas to ensure comfort and glides the handpiece over your skin. As the smooth metal probes glide over your skin, they deliver radiofrequency energy to heat the underlying tissues. Patients often compare the sensation to a hot stone massage!

Treatment Areas

Skin tightening with TriPollar is suitable for various parts of the face and body. The collection includes specific devices targeting the face, neck, abdomen, flanks, back, bikini line, trunk, and thighs. As such, if you’re self-conscious about fatty deposits or loose skin on any part of your face and body, you can consider TriPollar radiofrequency treatment for skin tightening.

Post-Procedure/ Downtime

You might experience mild redness, swelling, and irritation for a few hours after the treatment. However, skin tightening with Tripollar doesn’t involve any downtime — you can resume your daily activities immediately.

Wellness

  • Avoid strenuous workouts for about 24 hours.
  • Avoid excessive exposure to direct sunlight for a few days.
  • Wear sunscreen with an SPF of more than 30 whenever you step outside.

Results

Skin tightening with TriPollar doesn’t produce immediate results. In most cases, the results appear gradually over several weeks as your body produces new collagen and elastin fibers. Over time, your skin will start looking smoother, tighter, and younger.

Treatment Frequency

Most patients need multiple sessions for optimal results. However, the nurse practitioner will recommend the ideal treatment frequency according to your specific goals and needs.
