TriLipo by pollogenMaximus

What is TriLipo?

TriLipo is Pollogen’s proprietary technology which combines two kinds of energies, TriLipo radiofrequency (RF) and TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) which are emitted simultaneously by applicators on the Maximus system. The TRiLipo DMA energy causes the muscles to contract and push up against the skin’s adipose fat layer. The “pushing up” force created by the muscles along with the “pushing down” mechanical force of the applicator moving on the skin, enhances drainage of the fatty acids released by the TriLipo RF heat energy the Maximus. The muscle activation also helps spread the heat generated by the TriLipo RF evenly. Contraction of the muscles also improves venous return and accelerates removal of metabolic byproducts released due to the heating effect of the RF energy. In facial treatments, the TriLipo DMA energy enables toning of the muscles and lifting of the superficial muscular system (SMAS) underlying the facial skin.

Is TriLipo technology safe?

TriLipo technology is very safe. RF has been used in medicine for over 75 years and in aesthetic medicine, it has been used for more than 10 years. The Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) parameters are very safe, even at the highest settings the DMA cannot cause injury or damage to muscles.

Which medical device has TriLipo technology?

Only the Maximus system by Pollogen includes the proprietary (patent pending) TriLipo technology.

What does a TriLipo treatment feel like?

The treatment sensation has two aspects. Since the TriLipo technology combines RF with Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA), the sensation is a result of both technologies. The RF effect will be a heating effect of the skin. You should feel a very pleasant heating of the area, similar to a warm massage. The DMA has various power levels and the sensation is different per DMA strength. The practitioner will adjust the DMA parameters to enable a very tolerable treatment. DMA at low energy levels feels like bubbles bursting on the skin surface. As the DMA parameters are increased, the sensation changes to a sensation similar to rubber bands snapping in the treated area and higher DMA parameters will induce a sensation of real muscle contraction.

What is the down time after a TriLipo treatment session?

There is no down time after a TriLipo treatment; you can resume your regular activity immediately after the treatment.

What does the patient need to do to prepare for a TriLipo treatment?

There are no special requirements or preparations for a TriLipo treatment.

How does TriLipo technology treat cellulite?

Cellulite is visible as a result of enlarged fat cells that are under the skin (adipose fat) pushing up against the weakened dermis. Cellulite is a condition associated with poor metabolism and with hormonal levels. TriLipo technology treats cellulite by a combined effect. The TriLipo RF induces thermal heating of the adipose fat, increasing metabolism in the tissue. The increased heat induces a natural process of fat breakdown in the fat cells. The byproducts of fat breakdown are released from the fat cells to the extracellular matrix (ECM) and fat cells shrink in size. In addition, the thermal effect also affects the dermis by inducing an immediate effect of collagen tightening along with a long term effect of neocollagenesis (generation of new collagen). The combined effect of reduced size of fat cells along with “strengthening” of the dermis enables an improvement in the appearance of cellulite. The TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) energy that is emitted simultaneously with the TriLipo RF energy increases circulation and improves lymphatic drainage of the released byproducts of fat breakdown. The DMA also tones the underlying muscles, adding to the general improvement of the treated area.

How many TriLipo treatments are recommended?

Typically, the standard protocol for these treatments is 6 sessions. However, if needed, more treatments can be added according to severity of the condition. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 1-3 months to maintain and improve the treatment results.

How long is the TriLipo treatment?

The treatment duration for each body area varies, with most treatments taking from 30 minutes (for smaller areas) to 1 hour (for larger areas).
