What is TriLift?

TriLift by Lumenis is the future of aesthetic medicine as it is the first true non-surgical face lift treatment and is FDA-approved. It combines three effective treatments that can be tailored to the individual. Tripollar RF, RF Microneedling, and dynamic muscle stimulation. RF Microneedling transmits high levels of energy waves into the deeper layers of the skin to increase collagen and remodel fine lines, wrinkles, and texture. The concept of dynamic muscle stimulation involves working deeper at the muscle layers. As we age, our muscles lengthen. Because we are not able to exercise our facial muscles, this treatment is an effective method to shorten the muscle and treat the sagging of the tissues. It’s like a face workout!

Where can I use TriLift?

TriLift can be used on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, buttocks, and practically any region of the body.

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

This treatment is perfect for all skin tones and even sensitive skin. If you have minimal signs of aging, TriLift is great for pre-rejuvenation. And if you have extensive signs of aging or already have undergone a facelift or two, you will most definitely benefit from TriLift.

What is the downtime?

Unlike a facelift, there is none to minimal downtime.

How many treatments are recommended?

The recommended number of treatments is 4-5 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart.

Can it be combined with other treatments?

Yes, TriLift can be done alongside other treatments that we provide including botox/fillers, Hydrafacials, and laser. We can customize the combination based on your individual needs.

Will it be painful?

The RF Microneedling needles are 35G so they are wide as a strand of hair. They are the thinnest microneedling needles on the market, so many patients do not require numbing (unlike other RF microneedling devices). Of course, we have numbing always available for anyone. Tripollar RF feels like a hot stone massage. And although the dynamic muscle stimulation feels like a moderately intense contraction of the muscle, it is very tolerable.

How long will the results last?

When 4-5 treatments have been completed, the results will last at least a year based on clinical studies, and if you perform 1 treatment every 6 months the next year, you can maintain your results for the long term.
