TriPollar STOP Facial Skin Renewal
Order fulfilled by CurrentBody
A neat little device which will firm and tighten the skin in 8 weeks if used for 20 minutes a time 2-3 times a week. It achieves this – which should mean fewer wrinkles – by using radiofrequency to create a kind of ‘shrink-wrapping’ effect on the collagen in your skin.
This is a neat little device for firming and tightening the skin, which uses radiofrequency energy to create a kind of ‘shrink-wrapping’ effect on the collagen in your skin. You pick an area of your face that you want to work on, cover it with the conductive gel which comes with the product – and then work the device in small circles while it heats the skin up to 40 deg C – at which point the collagen in your skin contracts – which gives a small, immediate tightening effect — and then, because the skin detects an injury, it starts to create new collagen, which over the next few weeks, will lead to firmer skin, and we hope, fewer wrinkles.
It’s very easy to use, though you’ve really got to commit with a device like this, because you will need to use it two or three times a week, for 20 minutes at a time, for eight weeks, in order to see results.

Because this device works by heating up your skin to a point (just above 40 degrees C) where the collagen in the skin starts to contract, you need to work around your face section by section. I find it easiest to mark out the area I want to treat with white eyeliner pencil – say, the chunk of crow’s feet to the sides of my eyes – (this doesn’t interfere with the treatment) –
Once you’ve picked the area of your face that you want to work on, cover it with the conductive gel which comes with the product – plug the device in, switch it on and select your power setting. I would suggest starting with the lower power setting until you are comfortable with using the device and know what it feels like. Then make sure that all the contact points at the end of the device are in contact with the skin, and move the device in small circles while it heats the skin up. It will feel hot, so you need to keep it moving steadily. You won’t damage your skin by overheating it as there’s a sensor in the device which buzzes when the skin that you are treating is hot enough, then you can move on to the next area.
It will take around 20 minutes to do your whole face. The brand recommends that you use it 2-3 times a week for eight weeks in order to start seeing results.
