(Price depends on treatment size)
What is TriLipo™?
TriLipo combines two effective technologies (TriLipo RF and TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation) that work simultaneously, using a single applicator to deliver non-invasive fat removal, cellulite reduction and lymphatic drainage, as well as skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
The triple action of TriLipo technology consists of RF deep volumetric heating, internal muscle contraction, and external mechanical force, which together yield maximum fat removal, lymphatic drainage, and skin tightening. The TriLipo triple action effect is visible from the first treatment. Long-term body shaping is achieved in a minimal number of treatments.
How does Radio Frequency (RF) work?
RF energy generates heat through tissue resistance in both the dermal and subcutaneous layers. Selective and focused electro-heating of the skin stimulates and increases fat metabolism in the subcutaneous fat layer and collagen remodeling in the dermal layer.
In the subcutaneous fat layer, the thermal effect accelerates the natural fat metabolism process and the release of liquid fat from the fat cells into the extra-cellular matrix. Drainage of the released liquid fat is accelerated by simultaneously applying internal and external pressure on the fat layer.
How does Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) work?
TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) pulses internally stimulate the muscle layer, causing the muscle to contract. This contraction elevates the muscle and pushes the fat cells up towards the surface.Simultaneously, the mechanical pressure of the applicator presses the skin from above.
How do RF and DMA work together for body contouring?
The combined internal and external pressure of RF and DMA increase the removal of the liquid fat via accelerated lymphatic drainage. The simultaneous effect of the RF and the forced drainage results in the homogenous heating, and in accelerated blood and lymph circulation that optimizes tissue oxygenation and detoxification. In the dermal layer, focused RF energy heats the collagen fibers causing them to contract, resulting in immediate skin tightening and smoothening.
How many body contouring treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed depends on the overall condition of the area as well as the needs and expectations of the client. Generally, we start by doing a series of 6 or more.
Does body contouring hurt?
The RF feels warm and should be very tolerable, similar to a hot stone massage. The DMA is set based on client tolerance and may not always be indicated for use. This feels similar to ‘pins and needles’ from a muscle contraction.
How often do I need to come?
Appointments range anywhere from 4-14 days apart depending on the area and type of concern. This will be told to you at your consultation and is critical to your outcome.
How long will my body contouring results last?
If you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle with no major fluctuations in diet or weight, the results will be long lasting. Bear in mind that as we age, our bodies change, so we do recommend maintenance sessions every 6 to 12 months.
