Tripolar is not a laser it is a radiofrequency device. It heats up tissue below the skin surface to theoretically shrink those tissues and destroy fat. It is similar to cooking where the piece of food shrinks in size at is cooked. The technology does not sound to different from Thermage. It may be of use for mild or early ageing changes but I do not think it will do much if there is more extensive extra skin.
