Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Pollogen maximums TRI-POLAR RF skin tightening is the latest offering at Brighton Beauty + Medispa.
This treatment tightens the skin using TRI-POLAR RF technology that has a unique configuration of sophisticated controlled algorithms that prevents overheating and eliminates the need for skin and applicator cooling. The elastin fibres of the skin, collagen and elastin, are produced by fibroblasts. As they are heated, they contract and collagen strands are pulled closer resulting in immediately tightened skin.
The deep heating effect in turn accelerates the fat cell metabolism to augment collagen regeneration over the full treatment course. The desired result: tighter, younger looking skin immediately and long term skin remodelling.
Unlike laser/IPL treatments which tend to be absorbed or scattered by the upper layers of the skin and can cause some burning, TRI-POLLAR RF skin tightening works in the deeper layers of the skin without doing harm to the upper layers.
How does it work?
The handpiece is slowly rotated over the target areas transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis. A high Frequency electric wave is generated which penetrates the skin and moves the water molecules causing them to collide with each other, generating heat, and this heat contracts old collagen and stimulates the formation of new collagen.
Clinical research has shown that the bulk heating of the connective tissue in the lower layers causes the skin to tighten. RF skin tightening is achieved by the effect of the heat on the collagen fibres which causes them to lose their long fibre structure and shrink into more compact from. This causes an increased tension within the skin which has a tightening affect.

Pre and Post treatment recommendation
Avoid any type of sun exposure (eg. laying in the sun, artificial tanning beds, self-tanners) for approximately 2 weeks before and after RF treatment. After RF treatments, you should follow your therapists recommendations for an at home skin care regime to maintain between treatments and to provide longer lasting results when you are done with your series of treatments.
How long does the treatment take?
Allow 40-60 minutes for the procedure.
What areas can be treated?
Areas that are mainly treated are face (neck, eyes, forehead, jaw), tummy, thighs, upper arms and buttocks.
Do I need to take time off work?
Absolutely not, the RF will only cause a little heating under the skin. It will cause a slight pink tone which will subside within 1-2 hours.
How does the RF treatment feel?
The treatment feels like a progression of heat building up, warming until slightly hot. Skin temperature needs to build up to 40-45 degrees for best results.
What can I expect after the first treatment?
You will see and feel that your skin is firmer and lifted, and your pores will be tightened. Some clients see dramatic results after their first treatment, but some clients need more than 1 treatment for the the same results.
How will my skin look after the first treatment?
Your skin will feel slightly warm and will look pink. Your skin will look and feel great!
Can RF improve the condition around the eyes (dark circles)?
Yes, the heat from the RF energy helps promote blood circulation, new collagen growth and collagen tightening which lifts the eyes.
How long do the results last?
In general, a course of 6 treatments is recommend to get lasting results. Treatments are recommended 1-3 weeks apart. Maintenance may be required (1 treatment every 6-12 months).
