What is Triniti?
Triniti is an affordable, non-invasive facial rejuvenation technique that utilizes three individual cosmetic treatments in combination to improve skin's appearance with little to no recovery time and minimal discomfort. ReFirme Skin Tightening, Matrix IR Fractional for Wrinkles and Fotofacial RF Color Correction are three widely used treatments each on their own, but with Triniti they are combined into one comprehensive treatment.
How does Triniti work?
Radiofrequency and laser light energy are used together to gently heat skin, improving the visible tone and texture of the skin's surface right away, and encouraging collagen growth so that results continue to improve and develop over time. The treatment is initiated with Fotofacial RF Color Correction, which applies pulsed light and radio frequency heat to the skin. Problem areas like spider veins and discoloration are targeted, and because they respond differently to the light than normal cells do, these areas of concern are effectively treated without damaging nearby tissue. The heating element treats imperfections and stimulates collagen development at the same time. ReFirme Skin Tightening is used next, which uniquely combines radio frequency and infrared light to boost new collagen production once again, and it also supports existing collagen, helping it to bond more tightly together. Finally, Matrix IR Fractional for Wrinkles is used, during which powerful fractional infrared light is applied to the skin to cause collagen tightening and reshaping.
What areas of the body does Triniti treat?
Most Triniti treatments are applied to the face and neck areas, two places where skin shows the affects of aging the most markedly.
What are the advantages of Triniti over other procedures?
There are many benefits to Triniti when compared to similar treatments. Triniti is:
-Less invasive than other procedures
-Able to deliver results that improve over time
-Effective in just 1 to 3 treatments
-Able to treat multiple problems at once
Who is a candidate for Triniti?
Individuals in search of a facial rejuvenation procedure to restore skin's natural health and improve the appearance of sun spots, uneven skin tone, sagging skin, wrinkles, spider veins and nasolabial folds may be good candidates for this treatment. Triniti is safe for most skin tones and types.
How is Triniti performed?
When patients first meet with their provider, a treatment plan will usually be created based on the individual's aesthetic goals and skin type. Most patients require around three Triniti sessions spaced every four weeks
for the best results.
On the day of the treatment, the experienced provider will begin by disinfecting the treatment area and encourage the patient to wear protective eye goggles. A conductive cooling gel will be spread on the treatment area and the three-step process will begin. The specialist will use different handheld devices to deliver the photorejuvenation, skin tightening, and wrinkle reduction treatments to the targeted areas. Some minor discomfort may be felt during the process, but will be alleviated when the session is finished. Most treatments take around an hour to complete, but this depends on the size and extent of the treatment area.
What is the recovery like?
Because Triniti is non-invasive, there is no recovery time needed after treatment. Patients can return to their daily routines immediately. Mild side effects such as redness and swelling may occur, but can be concealed
with makeup. In some cases, highly pigmented areas may appear slightly darker in the days following treatment, but will then slough off and reveal fresher looking skin.
What will my results be like?
Results are gradually developed throughout the treatment sessions, and continue to improve as collagen develops over time. Maintenance treatments may be required every six months to continue enjoying results.
Is Triniti approved for use in the U.S.?
Yes, the Triniti skin series is approved by the FDA for the safe rejuvenation of common skin imperfections in patients in the United States.
How much does Triniti cost?
The costs associated with undergoing a series of Triniti skin series treatment sessions depend on geographical location, number of sessions required to achieve desired results, additional treatments that are
included in the overall treatment plan and the fees charged by the practitioner. Financing options and payment plans may be available through your provider to make Triniti affordable for most patients.
