TriPollar system safe for wrinkle reduction

Article-TriPollar system safe for wrinkle reduction

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. — A radiofrequency device by Pollogen is safe and effective for reducing facial wrinkles, according to results of a recent clinical trial.

Pollogen’s TriPollar Apollo device was tested in a blinded clinical trial, headed by Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic surgeon Steven D. Shapiro, M.D., PRWeb reports. The study included 37 female patients who received eight weekly treatments with the device to reduce facial wrinkles. The patients were scheduled for follow-up visits at one and three months following the last treatment.

There were no unexpected adverse side effects, PRWeb reports. Pre- and post-treatment photographic analysis conducted by two physicians revealed improvement of 94 to 97 percent.

“We performed 136 treatments in our study without any side effects,” PRWeb quotes Dr. Shapiro as saying. “Patients reported a pleasant and pain-free experience and were satisfied with the results. I observed a significant reduction in wrinkles.”

According to PRWeb, the TriPollar Apollo is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for the noninvasive treatment of mild-to-moderate facial wrinkles.

The study was published in the August issue of Lasers in Surgery and Medicine.
