I was given the opportunity to experience the Pollogen Face TriLipo at Versus Med Spa last Monday. The Pollogen face treatments are the safe, effective, and non-invasive way to tighten, firm, & smooth the face and neck. Not only can the treatment do this, but it can also reduce acne scars! To me, that’s the main reason why I want this treatment! I have accumulated quite a few scars over my never-ending battle with acne!
Before I go on to talk about the actual treatment, I want to first talk about my experience with the clinic, Versus Med Spa. The clinic is located at 280 Sheppard Ave East. The clinic can be a little hard to find for first time goers, so I would suggest looking at the satellite photos on Google Map or a sign like the one above.
Once you have arrived at the plaza, you’ll need to take the stairs to the second floor because the clinic is on the upper level. It’s not difficult to find because there are signs everywhere.
Once you enter the door, you’ll see a sign and with the room number of the clinic, in this case, it’s 208.
When you enter the clinic, you are greeted with a very warm and pleasant room. It has a very warm and cozy atmosphere that the owners, Victoria and Vadim tries hard to maintain. Since it’s a family owned clinic, there are a lot of privacy and the highest standards of service. What’s really unique is that both owners are trained as plastic surgeons and dermatologists. That speaks volume to their professionalism.
This is the room where my treatment took place. It’s still very cozy and comfortable. So I’m going to take sometime now to explain a little bit more about the procedures and the treatment.
By heating the collagen fibres, Pollogen FACE Treatments cause the immediate contraction and tightening of the fibres and, firming and toning loose skin. In addition, any unwanted fatty pockets in the face and neck area, such as under the eyes or in the ‘jowl’ area, are reduced when the MyPollogen Face treatment stimulates natural metabolism of the fat, reshaping the treatment area.
Meet the Maximus machine by Pollogen! Or what I call it, the miracle worker! The three fundamental components which allow the Maximus to deliver one’s desired results are the TriLipo RF, TriLipo DMA, and TriFractional. I was given the TriLipo RF and TriLipo DMA treatment. I’ll go into details about each below.
The Maximus system effectively utilizes small, medium, and large applicators which specialize in the correction of certain cosmetic imperfections. For example, the small applicator is specifically designed to target the treatment of more delicate areas, the medium applicator would help take the double out of double chin, and finally, the large applicator would be ideal for the improved appearance of problematic body issues. Only the small and medium applicator was used on me because the treatment was only targeted towards my face.
TriLipo RF: The RF (Radio Frequency) energy generates heat through tissue resistance in both the dermal and subcutaneous layers. It’s suppose to stimulate the skin and increases fat metabolism. My skin was 35 degrees prior to this treatment and afterwards, it was 40 degrees. But don’t get the heat scare you, it’s nothing that you cannot bear.
TriLipo DMA: Internally, TriLipo™ Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) pulses stimulate the muscle layer causing the muscle to contract. This contraction elevates the muscle and pushes the fat cells up towards the surface. I thought this treatment was really cool. Your muscles actually contracts out of your control. It doesn’t hurt at all.
Both of these procedures took around 45 minutes in total. You can watch the machine in action in the video below.
This is me after the treatment. (This is my bare face! And yup, I have lots of imperfections) One of the side effect is that your skin will become red due to the treatment. However, it’s only temporary and will disappear. My acne is mostly concentrated on the lower parts of my face so Vidam actually gave me a drying mask to put on my face after the treatment. Before I left, Victoria also gifted me the DERMAQUEST Pumpkin Peel for my acne. I like how there’s extra care that’s given to the customers.
To me, the results aren’t too drastic. Well, first of all, I’m still rather young and thus, I don’t have that many wrinkles. The treatment is recommend for any women between the ages of 35-60 years of age. I just wanted to see some reduction in my acne scars and to my surprise, one of my scars have started to fade. Can you spot which one? Haha! I did feel extremely refresh after the treatment, maybe it’s because all the muscles on my skin have had some “exercise”. And I honestly feel that my V-line has gotten more apparent! Not sure if that’s just me! Haha! My skin is anywhere from perfect, but I must work hard to keep improving my skin!
