Watch the video to hear what Dr. Oz has to say about the TriPollar Apollo.
TriPollar Skin Tightening RF Device
TriPollar technology was first introduced outside of the United States in 2006 and has since been used on millions of satisfied patients in over 60 countries. The Apollo TriPollar has currently been FDA approved and is being used in several states across the United States. Sewickley Med Spa is the FIRST and ONLY in the Pittsburgh area to carry this advanced technology. TriPollar Apollo was featured in several news television broadcasts in Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, and Dallas as well as magazines such as,New Beauty, Star Magazine, W Magazine, and Aesthetic Guide.
Dr. Andrew Ordon from the hit television show "THE DOCTORS" talks with leading Los Angelos dermatologist and plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald Moy on Aesthetic TV about the benefits of the TriPollar Apollo.
TriPollar technology is an advanced third generation radio-frequency (RF) based solution for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, fat reduction, cellulite reduction, and body sculpting. It is a safe, non-invasive treatment that requires no recovery time. This pleasant treatment feels like a warm massage with no pain, even on sensitive and loose skin. Apollo TriPollar is effective for all skin colors and does not affect pigmentation.

1.) Does the TriPollar Apollo treatment hurt?
No, there is no pain associated with the treatment. The treatment feels like a warm massage which is why some patients fall asleep during the relaxing treatment.
2.) Is there any downtime after a TriPollar Apollo treatment?
There is no downtime. Therefore, one can resume their regular activity immediately after treatment.
3.) How soon can I see results?
For facial treatments, the majority of patients begin seeing results after the first treatment. For body treatments, some patients feel a change after the first treatment, but most see visible results after 6 treatments.
4.) How long will results last?
Results will last several months. Due to the body's continuous aging, preventative maintenance treatments, 3 times a year, are recommended to maintain results.
5.) What is Radio Frequency (RF) technology and how does it work?
Radiofrequency heats deep layers of skin by delivering High Frequency (HF) electrical current via electrodes into the body. Body cells interpret HF as an energy source instead of electricity. The skin layers act as resistors to the HF electrical current and depending on their resistance, they heat up to varying degrees. The heat generated in the dermis and subcutaneous layers is responsible for the clinical outcome.
6.) What's the difference between TriPollar, Bi-polar, and Mono-polar Radio Frequency?
A.) Mono-polar is the first generation of RF technology, which uses one electrode to deliver the electric current. Part of the energy heats the skin, putting the skin at risk of burns, and the rest of the energy flows uncontrolled throughout the body. Since the electric current passes through a large part of the body, there is no control over the depth of penetration and the area affected. Treatment is painful and results are visible after a few months.
B.) Bi-polar is the second generation of RF technology which uses two electrodes, allowing the electric current to flow evenly between the two electrodes. Even though this confines the treatment area somewhat, it still doesn't achieve effective treatment focus. Treatment is painful and results are visible after a few weeks.
Mono-polar and Bi-polar require higher energy levels to achieve clinical results, putting the skin at risk for burns and skin damage. They also require a cooling mechanism to mitigate these risks, which results in less efficient heating of the skin layers.
C.) TriPollar RF technology is the third generation which uses 3-6 electrodes that control the energy and center the energy between all the electrodes. The focused energy delivery results in improved treatment efficacy that provides immediate visible results from the first treatment. Variable depth of penetration allowing for simultaneous heating of both the dermis and hypodermis skin layers, without injuring the epidermis. The treatment is painless and pleasant because of the relatively low power needed.
7.) Why is glycerin used during TriPollar treatments?
Glycerin is found to be the most suitable treatment lubricant due to its high resistance to RF. It allows the RF to penetrate to the deep layers of the skin while protecting the epidermal layer from becoming overheated or harmed. Glycerin also helps the applicator glide comfortably over the skin.
8.) How soon after pregnancy can a TriPollar Apollo treatment be performed?
At least three months as long as the woman is not breast feeding and her health permits treatment.
9.) Can TriPollar treatments be combined with other treatments?
Generally, one can combine TriPollar treatments with other treatments. The secondary treatment should be performed only after one is completely healed from the primary treatment. Even though the question of combining treatments varies per individual, general recommendations are as follows:
a.) Botox: 2 weeks
b.) Natural Fillers: 3-4 weeks
c.) Fractional Laser: 1 month or until complete healing
d.) Laser, IPL procedures: 1-2 weeks
e.) Superficial/ Light Peels, AHA & BHA: 2 weeks
f.) Deep peeling/ Liposuction/ plastic surgery/ laser resurfacing:
1-3 months or until fully healed.
g.) Ultrasound, LED devices: 24 hours
h.) Mesotherapy: depends on formulation and skin healing rate
i.) Synthetic fillers, gold/ plastic threads: not recommended to combine
10.) Some contraindications: You should not have this procedure if you have any of the following:
a.) Pacemaker or internal defibrillator, implanted neurostimulators or any
other internal electric device.
b.) Metal implants in the treatment area
c.) Pregnancy or nursing
