TriPollar Overview

By RealSelf

What is TriPollar Apollo?

TriPollar is a Radio Frequency (RF) technology cleared by the FDA for treatment of facial wrinkles and rhytides.  According to Lumiere Medical, the Apollo treatments will result in enhanced generation of new collagen and tightening of existing collagen which can help with sagging skin, loose jowls, jaw line contouring, sagging skin under-chin (“turkey neck”), wrinkles and fine lines, and a general toning and lifting of the face. A typical facial treatment takes about 30-45 minutes.  The company recommends 4-6 treatments, but states that more treatments can be added if needed and that touch-ups are recommended every 3-6 months.
