Using the revolutionary elos(TM) technology, the Triniti skin system from Syneron treats skin discoloration, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and tightens the skin. The device is a combination of three different skin treatment technologies in one.
Dr. Sanjay Grover of The Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery discussed the Triniti system with Dr. Drew Ordon of The Doctors today.
- The first step in the treatment process is the Fotofacial RF to address the brown and the red skin discoloration often associated with aging. FotoFacial uses radio frequency (RF) energy to treat a variety of skin conditions and is typically used on the face, neck, and/or chest to treat redness and flushing. It also helps remedy damage caused by sun overexposure.
- The second step is the Refirme RF device for skin tightening, which provides a non-surgical lift to the face and neck. The Refirme RF procedure utilizes RF energy to improve skin texture with almost no pain and fast results. The RF energy stimulates the collagen in the skin causing it to contract and inducing the growth of more so that the results continue to improve over a 4-6 month period.
- The third and final step is the Matrix treatment for fine wrinkles, lines around the mouth and acne scars. Also using RF energy, the Matrix, often referred to as eMatrix, is a fractional resurfacing treatment that does not use lasers. As with other fractional treatments, the skin is treated with several columns of energy that leave healthy skin intact between the small treated areas. These healthy patches of skin assist with faster healing and less pain during treatment.
According to Dr. Sanjay Grover, it takes about 20-40 minutes total to receive all three treatments. Patients generally return every 3-4 weeks for additional treatments, receiving about 3-4 to achieve maximum results.
