The latest benefits of TriPollar technology- its application for stretch marks and acne reduction- will be presented in the upcoming ICAD (International Congress in Aesthetic Dermatology) & 3rd ECAA Asia conference, the most comprehensive EuroAsian Congress in Aesthetic and Anti-aging medicine, held in Bangkok January 22-24. TriPollar technology has become a gold standard in non-invasive aesthetic treatments and has been proven to safely and effectively tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles, cellulite and body circumference. Now, two new applications, stretch marks reduction and acne reduction have been clinically validated and study results will be presented at the congress.
Dr. W. Manuskiatti will lecture on Treatment of Striae Distensae in skin phototypes IV-V with a TriPollar radiofrequency device. In the clinical study, seventeen females with post pregnancy stretch marks underwent six weekly treatments with the apollo device- Pollogen's latest aesthetic solution based on TriPollar technology. Clinically proven results showed that one week after the final (sixth) treatment, 38.2% and 11.8% of the patients were assessed to have 25-50% and 51-75% improvement in the appearance of their stretch marks, respectively. The long term effect of the treatment was confirmed during the 6 weeks follow up which showed that a higher percentage of the patients were rated to have improvement of their post pregnancy stretch marks, including 26.5% and 5.9% showing 51-75% and >75% improvement, respectively. None of the participants were rated as having no improvement in their clinical appearance of stretch marks. Patient satisfaction was also measured and 65% of patients reported that they were very satisfied with the treatment, 23% were satisfied and 12% were slightly satisfied. Full study results have been published in the online edition of the Journal of Dermatological Treatment.
Dr. Jonathan Nevin Yu, will present data on his study, Treatment of acne vulgaris with a TriPollar radiofrequency device: preliminary data. The study included ten participants, four males and six females, that underwent a 6 week treatment session with the TriPollar apollo device. Results showed that after 6 weeks there was a statistically significant reduction of 44% in skin acne and after 4 weeks follow up average reduction was sustained. All patients reported a painless and pleasant treatment experience.
Both lectures will take place on Monday, January 11th in room 6, session 72, between 3.30-4.30 PM.
