Focuses localised heat to above 40 degree beneath the skin’s surface via radio frequency liquefies the broken down fatty acid chains for enzymic action. Multipolar RF energy dispersion provides more surface area for the enzymic breakdown of fat cells.

X3 Tripolar RF technology is specific purposed to solve or dramatically improve the following problems:
• Cellulite
• Fat Reduction – Bipolar & Tripolar
• Skin Tightening – Bipolar, Tripolar, Dot Matrix
• Post Liposuction Smoothing and Tightening
Monopolar vs Bipolar?

For the purpose of aesthetic treatments monopolar radiofrequency is delivered by applying a single electrode to the treated area and an opposing electrode that is relatively far removed so that the current goes deeply through the body. Unipolar (RF) penetrates deeper and more intensely than bipolar(RF). Thermage uses monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten and contour skin.


For the purpose of aesthetic treatments bipolar radiofrequency is delivered by applying two closely positioned electrodes to the treated area. The electric current travels from one electrode through the tissue and back up to the other electrode, the current that goes between the electrodes is small and shallow. As a result, the tissue in the treated area is heated less deeply and less intensely than monopolar (RF). In aesthetic treatments bipolar RF is usually combined with light or energy based sources, including lasers, intense pulsed light, infrared light, or vacuum assisted. Infrared light heats the tissue down to the deep dermis and acts to “pre-heat” tissue, for improved (RF) penetration.

Bipolar RadioFrequency Used with Laser and IPL
Unlike laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) energy, radio frequency is not absorbed by a specific chromophore. When RF is combined with other energy sources such as lasers and IPL, the laser or IPL energy will be absorbed by the targeted chromophore (melanin or hemoglobin), resulting in an increased temperature in the target areas. The increases in temperature lowers the tissue impedance to those areas and the RF energy will stream preferentially to the warmer areas with lowered impedance. Elōs is the first and only technology that simultaneously harnesses the power of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy.

Herkins Dual Frequency Radio Frequency (RF) treatment uses electrical pulses to effectively tighten skin and reduce wrinkles. It works by selectively delivering heat energy to the middle and lower levels of skin stimulating new collagen growth without damaging the upper skin layers. Dual Radio Frequency (RF) safely delivers targeted bursts of heat energy to the middle and lowers levels of your skin. The heat energy tightens the skin’s existing collagen and stimulates the growth of new collagen, which plumps the skin, making it appear tighter and more youthful. Radio Frequency is FDA approved for the tightening of skin.
Perfect for:
Stubborn fat melting and body sculpting. Weight loss results when combined with other treatments.
Dual Radio Frequency for dissolving lipids for enzyme breakdown.
Treatment time: 20 mins onwards
Price: From $488 per visit, per area
Dual RF (Dual RadioFrequency)
Dual RF frequencies allow a more intense discharge of RF energy to provide intensive fat melting and lifting effects. It is strongest rf heat based machine in the industry despite being one of the older machines available.
Tripolar / Multipolar RF
Tripolar and Multipolar RF are perfect for tightening and lifting. The multipolar conductors allow contouring and shaping of loose skin without the risk of sparking. Most clients can see very profound results when tripolar is used with cavitation and vacuum therapy.

Dot Matrix, Fractional and Lattice RF
These all refer to the small pin head conductors.
