TriPollar STOP - Anti Aging RF Device
STOP is a remarkable new clinical skin renewal device that postpones and reverses the signs of ageing, bringing about a fresh, younger look that until now could only be achieved through professional treatments. STOP has started a revolution by transforming the professional treatments into a self-administered clinical treatment, in the comfort of your home.
STOP uses TriPollar Radio Frequency technology to gently heat the skin from inside. A warm, relaxing sensation is felt over the skin surface while the anti-ageing, therapeutic action is taking place in the deeper layers of the skin. This heat induces an increase in dermal activity resulting in the stimulation of collagen production and thickening of the dermis (the skin’s foundation) leading to visible skin tightening, firming and renewal.
The recommended treatment regimen of 12-15 minutes, 2-3 times a week, for 6 to 8 weeks will significantly reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines, providing you with improved skin texture and long lasting results.

TriPollar RF technology was developed by Pollogen Ltd. for professional medical and aesthetic market. TriPollar RF technology is widely used for body fat reduction, body contouring and skin firming.
TriPollar Radio Frequency technology uses multiple pole electrodes to deliver radio frequency energy deep into the skin. TriPollar technology does not require high power outputs to produce excellent clinical results.
Multiple pole electrodes focus the high frequency electrical current beam into the defined central area between the pole electrodes in a similar way to a laser beam. TriPollar technology delivers high energy in a controlled and focused manner and with a low power requirement, thus making the treatment effective, whilst safe and painless.
The high frequency energy beam penetrates both the superficial and the deep tissues, producing smooth and even multi layer skin heating. Treatment results are immediate and long lasting.

TriPollar Stop Reviews & Testimonials
"I have to tell you something also. I was in Los Angeles last week and was introduced to some people and we got to talking about age and all the different things we do to try to look young. I will be 62 later this month and have been using my Tripollar STOP now for a couple of months. I was reluctant to tell my age (I always am) but finally relented and told them and I was thrilled to see the jaws of about 8 people drop! I was told by all of them that they thought I looked somewhere between 42 and 45!!! Obviously they all wanted to know my secret so I told them. These people were from all over North America and I'm sure they will be ordering and spreading the word to their friends and associates.
So, my point is that this is one of the best things I have ever found to obtain and maintain a young, fresh look. I have tried many things including the excrutiatingly painful Titan treatment which did not work. I do use strong sunscreen and take care of my skin and I think that's vital in the whole process but honestly, STOP is a wondrous device and well worth every penny!"
"As a qualified Beauty Therapist having used various facial lifting machines over many years, I was asked to road test the 'Stop'. As I expect a lot from my skincare and various face lifting gadgets, the 'Stop' was not going to get an easy time.
I started testing the Stop on 28th March 2009 and have not looked back. As well as being incredibly simple to use, its also VERY effective. I am also impressed with the 'after' moisturiser and I now use it even between treatments. The Stop treatment itself is very quick and so unlike to treatment sessions with face lifting microcurrent machines I used in the past, which can be laborious and lengthy.
With my first use of 'Stop', I obtained a more than satisfactory result, I noticed a definite lifting effect. I have now used this for 8 weeks and at the end of each session I have noticed a continued lifting effect, my skin is definitely firmer and smoother, also my uneven skin tone has been vastly corrected. Determined to give the 'Stop' a thorough trial, on a couple of sessions I actually used it on only one half of my face and noticed that the cheek and jowl areas were definitely visibly more defined and lifted on that one side.
Using 'Stop' is a very pleasant experience in that it produces a gentle heat which in itself is very relaxing. I also feel that it is extremely safe as the orange light shows even a novice when the face is heated to its optimum and an additional cut out prevents any risk of overheating. Another benefit I also find pleasing is that foundation goes on extremely smoothly and I look fresh and toned. I am in my early fifties, but I know that my face and neck look much younger now thanks to the 'Stop'.
This is definitely a 'must have' item for anyone serious about their skin care regime."
QUESTIONS and ANSWERS
Q.1: Do I have to use the gel provided with the STOP Clinical Skin renewal Device or can I use something I already have at home?
A.1: The STOP Preparation gel is especially formulated to use with the STOP clinical skin renewal tripollar rf device. It is the only gel that should be used during the treatment with the TriPollar STOP. TriPollar STOP Preparation Gel forces the TriPollar energy deep into the dermis layer that the STOP treatment targets. The STOP Preparation Gel prevents the overheating of the epidermal layer during treatment. Other types of gels may cause the skin surface to overheat and will also block the energy from reaching deeply into the dermis.
Q.2: How many applications would I get from the gel provided?
A.2: The amount of Preparation Gel provided with the TriPollar STOP clinical skin renewal device should last for a full block of treatments (approximately 12 + individual treatments). You should apply a thin even layer all over the face or over the area you intend to treat. There is no need to apply thick layer of the gel to get desired results.
Q.3: Can I use other types of After Treatment Creams?
A.3: The TriPollar STOP After Treatment Cream is specially formulated with the highest quality of ingredients to provide your skin with the required nutrients and vitamins that complement the TriPollar STOP treatment. Using other facial creams might reduce the outcomes of the STOP treatment.
Q.4: How often should the TriPollar STOP Clinical Skin Renewal device be used?
A.4: For optimum and long lasting results, it is recommended that the TriPollar STOP is used 2 – 3 times per week for 6 - 8 weeks (12 - 20 treatments). You should wait at least 48 hours between sessions to allow the natural processes of collagen regeneration to take place within the skin. After the initial course of treatments as recommended above, the TriPollar STOP should be used for maintenance and enhancement of outcomes once every couple of weeks or as needed. There is no limit on the use of the STOP device.
Q.5: What happens if I stop using the STOP clinical skin renewal device?
A.5: TriPollar STOP treatment protocol was designed to provide the best long term results. TriPollar STOP treatment provides the optimal conditions for the collagen build up process that takes several weeks. It is important, therefore, to complete the full course of 12 – 20 treatments followed by the maintenance treatments as recommended. Not following the recommended protocol will result in diminished long terms results.
Q.6: Does the STOP clinical skin renewal treatment hurt? Why is there a skin redness after treatment? How long does the redness last?
A.6: The TriPollar STOP clinical skin renewal is specially designed to deliver effective treatment without pain. The TriPollar technology focuses the energy delivery directly to the treated area, whilst using low power. Treatments with STOP are virtually painless. Additionally, the TriPollar STOP treatment provides a pleasant warm sensation underneath the skin. The slight post treatment redness is natural and indicates the beginning of the therapeutic regeneration process. The redness disappears within few minutes to an hour following the treatment. The STOP After Treatment Cream completes the treatment and make up can be applied on skin immediately post treatment.
Q.7: Can TriPollar STOP clinical skin renewal device cause any skin surface damage?
A.7: Since the TriPollar Radio Frequency delivers highly focused RF energy, it does not require high power to get the desired clinical results. Using the Preparation Gel properly ensures that the energy is delivered effectively to the Dermis layer of the skin rather than stay on the skin surface (Epidermis). Moreover, the TriPollar STOP device has a built in thermostat that continuously measures the skin surface temperature and activates safety mechanism that turns the device off, if the skin surface temperature reaches a pre-set safety limit.
Q.8: Can I use the TriPollar STOP skin renewal device on all parts of my face?
A.8: STOP device should not be used on the eye lids, over closed eyes or on the ears.

A.9: The STOP clinical skin renewal is a TriPollar rf device that is safe to use on any skin type and skin colour.
Main contraindications include pacemaker or internal defibrillator; permanent fillers on the treated area; abnormal skin conditions; during pregnancy or breastfeeding; severe concurrent conditions (i.e. cardiac disease);
The User Manual enclosed with the TriPollar STOP clinical skin renewal device lists all contraindications and precautions in detail.
Q.10: Can I use the TriPollar STOP clinical skin renewal device on broken skin?
A.10: TriPollar STOP must not be used, if you have sores, blisters or any abnormal skin conditions.
Q.11: Can I use the TriPollar STOP on sunburn?
A.11: The STOP can be used on tanned skin. However, if you have a sun burn and your skin is red and sensitive avoid the STOP treatments until the redness and sensitivity pass.
Q.12: Should I stay out of the sun when using the TriPollar STOP Clinical Skin Renewal Device?
A.12: It is always recommended to protect your skin when you go out to the sun. Using TriPollar STOP will not make your skin photosensitive. Hence, it is fine to go out to the sun and get tanned. Unless you sustain a sun burn, you can safely continue your STOP treatments.
Q.13: Should I use STOP clinical skin renewal device if I am undergoing other skin treatments?
A.13: The TriPollar STOP should not be used, if you had any surgical procedure, laser resurfacing or deep chemical peel in the treatment area within the last 3 months or have not completely healed after such invasive procedure.
The TriPollar STOP can be safely used in combination with non invasive laser treatments, IPL treatments or non-permanent fillers. In case of natural fillers and Botox injections, it is recommended to wait 2 - 3 weeks prior to using the STOP on the same area. You should always consult your doctor prior to combining any treatments to ensure correct action.
Q.14: How long do STOP clinical skin renewal results last after completion of a course of 12 treatments?
A.14: Keeping in mind that the treatment does not prevent natural aging process to continue, the results typically last for a few months. It is therefore recommended that a maintenance treatment is carried out every couple of weeks. The maintenance treatments prolong and maintain the results of over a longer period of time.
Q.15: If I forgot or was not able to use the STOP clinical skin renewal device once or twice, will I need to re-start the treatment course?
A.15: The more closely you follow the recommended TriPollar STOP treatment regime, the better the results will be. However, missing a single treatment will not cause any damage or reverse the results that you have already achieved.
Q.16: What results can I expect from TriPollar Stop clinical skin renewal device?
A.16: The TriPollar technology has been clinically proven to create a thicker and suppler dermis layer containing higher amount of collagen fibres. Since the dermis layer serves as the skin’s infrastructure, making it stronger creates a better support to the upper layer (epidermis) of the skin and results in the following:
* Reversed signs of aging
* Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
* Younger and suppler skin
* Firmer, tighter and better textured skin
Q.17: How long will it take me to do a full face treatment? Can I split the treatment into few sessions during the day?
A.17: A full face treatment should take approximately 15 minutes and can be performed at any time of the day according to your preference. In order to create the optimal desired clinical effects it is essential to complete a whole treatment at once as recommended to deliver the right amount of energy in a given time. Cumulative heating of the dermis is essential for the success of the treatment. If you prefer to spend less time on each treatment, focus on selected more problematic area and conduct a full treatment on smaller treatment area.
Q.18: I see the green light turn on and off. What does this mean?
A.18: For complete safety, the TriPollar STOP device has a built-in thermostat that continuously measures the skin surface temperature and shuts the device off, if the skin surface temperature reaches the pre-set safety limit. When green light turns on and off automatically, it indicates that the safely mechanism has been activated in order to keep the skin in the optimal temperature and avoid overheating. The TriPollar STOP device will automatically turn on, when it detects a cooler skin surface area.
Q.19: What energy level should I select – High / Medium / Low ?
A.19: The TriPollar STOP clinical skin renewal device is personal and was designed to enable each user to adjust it to their comfort level. You should therefore choose the setting that gives comfortable feeling during the treatment. The setting determines the energy level delivered to the skin and the time it takes to reach certain temperature. Higher setting means faster heating. All levels are equally effective, provided that you follow the recommended treatment guidelines.
Q.20: What happens if I do not see the orange light?
A.20: The orange light is the indication that you have reached the required skin heating level. It is guideline to help you to carry out the treatment correctly. In the event you choose not to perform the treatment in front of the mirror or do not see the orange light for some other reason, perform the treatment on your comfort perception and move to another skin area, when you feel that the treated skin is warm enough.
Please note that the TriPollar STOP device’s safety mechanism will protect your skin from overheating in any case, hence there is no risk, if you do not see the orange light.
Q.21: How does the TriPollar STOP Clinical Skin Renewal Device work?
A.21: The TriPollar STOP is powered by the TriPollar technology. The STOP device focuses four low power beams deep into dermis in a similar way the laser focuses light. The TriPollar power stimulates dermal activity, tightening collagen fibres and increases new collagen production. The skin becomes tighter and suppler with significant reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. In short, the TriPollar STOP device makes your skin look younger and effectively reverses the signs of aging.
Q.22: Can I use TriPollar STOP during travel?

Q.25: Has the TriPollar STOP device pass all safety regulations?
A.25: TriPollar STOP has been tested and approved according to all safety and efficacy EU Directives and carries the CE mark. It also carries the cosmetic regulation marks.
Q.26: Has the TriPollar STOP clinical skin renewal device been tested on animals?
A.26: STOP has not been tested on animals. None of the TriPollar technology based devices were tested on animals.
Q.27: Would there be any facial fat loss caused by the TriPollar STOP™ tripollar treatment course?
A.27: TriPollar STOP is a device indicated for facial tightening and as such, the technical parameters of the device have been adjusted to stimulate collagen in the dermal layer and not go deeper into the hypodermis (location of the fat cells). The set parameters (in terms of power, treatment time and the warming effect) are not adequate for treatments on the fat layer. The TriPollar™ energy induces an increase in dermal activity resulting in the stimulation of collagen production and thickening of the dermis (the skin’s foundation of elastin and collagen) leading to visible skin tightening, firming and renewal without any loss in facial fat.
Q.28: How best to use the TriPollar STOP around the eyes and will it help with puffiness and assist in lifting?
A.28: When working around the eye use the orbital bone as your guide. Center the TriPollar Stop along this bone, using it in 3 linear sweeps: above the eye, below the eye and to the side. You can get a wonderful lifting effect when working above the eye and tightening and toning under the eye to assist in reduction of puffiness. Never use the STOP over a closed eye across the eyelid nor move any closer toward the eye away from the orbital bone.
Q.29: Do I need to use the STOP clinical skin renewal device on every area or can I choose problematic areas and focus on them?
A.29: There is no need to use the device on the areas you do not feel you have any need for. For instance – should you have crow’s feet and only want to work on that area - this is fine. The device delivers results in the areas that you want to improve!
Q.30: Can I use the STOP clinical skin renewal device over the centre of my neck?
A.30: Use of STOP over the centre of the neck is not recomended. You can use the STOP on the sides of the neck and over the decolletage. You must also NOT use the STOP over the breasts or arm pits.
Q.31: What is the operational temperature at which the Stop Clinical Skin Renewal Device works?
A.31: When the Stop is switched on and the green light shines, the temperature is 36 degrees C. When the orange light comes on, the temperature is 38 degrees C.When the green light begins to flicker, thus indicating activation of safety mechanism, the temperature reached 40 degrees C.
Q.32: I purchased both tripollar devices - the STOP Clinical Skin Renewal Device for Face & Neck and the POSE Clinical Skin Tightening Device for Body. Can I use the same treatment gel or do I have to continue buying the Tripollar STOP Gel as well as the Tripollar POSE Gel?
A.32: The Tripollar Treatment Gel formula is the same for both tripollar devices. The only difference is the quantity of the gel that the tripollar devices are supplied with. It is highly likely that you will use more tripollar gel with the POSE as you will be treating larger areas of your body with the POSE than with the STOP. If you own and use both tripollar devices, it will make good financial sense to purchase the Tripollar Gel in 130 ml tube as supplied with the Tripollar POSE. As there is only one tripollar gel formula, you can use the same tripollar gel for your Tripollar STOP treatment and for your TriPollar POSE treatment.
Q.33: Should I worry about moisturizing, when carrying out TriPollar Stop treatments?
A.33: It is always important to moisturize and nourish your skin. It is of paramount importance to deliver moisture to your radio frequency treated skin. Radio frequency treatment is a 'hot' treatment that triggers collagen regeneration. However, whilst stimulating collagen regeneration, the heat also increases the 'thirst' of the skin. It is therefore important to deliver plenty of moisture to the surface of the radio frequency treated skin.
You should use the Stop 'After' cream immediately after the Stop treatment and add plenty of your own moisturizer about an hour later. Always moisturize your skin thoroughly on the days between treatments. Some people find the Bio-oil very effective and use it before adding another good moisturizer - day cream or night cream as appropriate. Bio-oil is also very good moisturizer to use prior to make up and also adding extra moisture to areas prone to dryness over the make up in the course of the day. It is simple, fast and refreshing - just put the Bio-oil on your finger tips or palms of your hands and tap touch your face and neck gently, taking care not to disturb or smudge your make up.
