New Painless Treatment with 3rd Generation Pollogen apollo(TM) System
Provides Immediate Results
TORONTO, May 5 /CNW/ - Sigmacon Medical Products Corp. announced today
that the new Pollogen(TM) apollo(TM), the most advanced Radio Frequency System
in the world for body sculpting and facial contouring, is now available in
"Despite our tough economic times, projected growth of body sculpting and
skin tightening procedures, is expected to climb at an astonishing rate", says
Jay Herman, President of Sigmacon Medical Products Corp. "To meet this demand,
we have surveyed the global aesthetic industry and carefully selected only the
safest and most advanced RF technology available - the Pollogen apollo(TM)."
Developed with proprietary TriPollar(TM) technology, the apollo(TM) has
several advantages over older RF systems. Compared to existing mono-polar and
bi-polar devices, the apollo(TM) provides a more uniform and higher
concentration of Radio Frequency energy at a controlled depth. This allows for
greater efficacy at lower power settings. In turn, patients can safely achieve
immediate results comfortably and pain-free. As well, the treatment is
suitable for all skin types and colours.
Clinical results range from a reduction of up to 10cm(1) in tummy
circumference and 6cm(1) in thigh circumference. As well, the apollo(TM) RF
TriPollar(TM) treatment is used to provide non-surgical face lifts, localized
fat reduction, reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks, as well as
improve skin texture and tightness (including delicate areas such as the
décolleté and back of the hands).
"We are very excited about the collaboration with Sigmacon and launching
TriPollar(TM) - the latest 3rd generation RF technology in Canada, comments
Ms. Yfat Scialom, CEO of Pollogen Ltd. "We are confident that our clinically
proven, safe and effective products meet the expectations and needs of the
Canadian market. We look forward to the successful expansion of TriPollar(TM)
technology in North America, as experienced in Asia, South America and
How the apollo(TM) TriPollar(TM) procedure works
apollo(TM) RF energy safely penetrates the skin to selectively heat the
fat cells and extra-cellular matrix (ECM) where collagen fibres are embedded.
Localized heating immediately shrinks the fat cells, contracts the collagen
fibres and increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts; thereby accelerating
the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. In turn, the skin tightens,
creating a smoother, healthier and younger appearance.
