Pollogen and Lumiere Medical are planning to unveil Apollo, powered by TriPollar, at the upcoming meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) in San Diego, Calif. from March 16-20, 2012. The technology, which uses radiofrequency energy, is FDA-cleared for smoothing mild to moderate facial wrinkles, but used off-label for body contouring. Apollo, powered by TriPollar is now available in the U.S. through an exclusive partnership between Pollogen and Lumiere Medical.
The procedure takes 30 minutes, and there is no pain or daytime associated with its use. Some results can be seen immediately, and the full cosmetic improvements are visible after six to eight sessions.
“We performed 136 treatments in our FDA study without any side effects,” says Steven Shapiro MD, a dermatologist at the University of Miami School of Medicine, in a press release. “Patients reported a pleasant and pain-free experience and were satisfied with the results. I observed a significant reduction in wrinkles, and I am extremely impressed by the results, technology, and safety profile.”
Pollogen and Lumiere will be located at booth #850 from Saturday, March 17 to Monday, March 19, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
