The Tripollar STOP VX models are excellent at-home skin rejuvenation tools, and one of the few that can lift sagging skin. They are suitable for all skin tones but avoid them if you have sensitive dry skin or other skin conditions. Use with RF conductivity gels based on glycerin.
Start-up requires a significant time commitment of 6 to 8 weeks, but maintenance is simple. Lightweight and simple, you can enjoy the lush invigorating warm sensation while watching TV.
What You Need to Know
This FDA-approved device employs third-generation radio frequency, which dermatologists and plastic surgeons use to tighten the skin and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. The Stop Vx is multi-functional and provides targeted benefits in two ways: the first is a traditional Radio Frequency (RF), which helps to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. The second method is to use ELV, the Stop Vx’s electronic vibration mode, which causes the muscles to tighten, giving the appearance of being more lifted.
Apply a thin layer of preparation gel to the application areas.
Set your device to the appropriate mode. I recommend starting with the lower level until your skin can tolerate the heat/pain, then gradually increasing to the higher level.
Separate your face into three sections: the forehead, the left cheek, and the right cheek. Begin moving the device across your skin in slow, small, circular motions. tripollar stop vx usage
Continue to move the device in the same area until you see an orange light and hear a beep. This indicates that the temperature has reached the desired level. Rep 1-2 more circles before moving on to the next area.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you’ve finished the section. We’ll now move on to linear motions.
Move the device slowly from the bottom to the top of the fold in one linear motion for your nasolabial folds. Repeat 10-20 times more.
Next, move the device in an upward linear motion along the contour of your jawline, beginning just below your chin. You can only use the blue DMA + RF mode for this step. Repeat 10-20 times more. tripollar stop vx usage
Gently move the device from the corner of your mouth to the middle of your ear. Repeat 10-20 times. tripollar stop vx usage
Finally, move the device along the bottom of your cheekbones, slightly pushing upward, from the corner of your nose. This will assist in lifting and plumping the apple of your cheeks. Repeat 10-20 times more.
After completing all three sections, rinse off any remaining gel with water and maintain your regular skincare routine.
The Tripollar STOP devices come in a beautiful cardboard box with a little plastic to protect the contents. The boxes are small but sturdy, and they fit in a drawer to hold the device, power cable, and gel when not in use. This small, handheld device sends radiofrequency electrical current into the dermis layer of your skin.
You can’t feel it because it’s so fast. Where the current encounters resistance in your tissues, however, it generates gentle heat. This heat tightens your collagen fibres and stimulates fibroblast activity, gradually remodelling your skin’s collagen and elastin structures. They’re clinically proven to tighten and lift your skin, as well as smooth wrinkles, after the regular start-up schedule. The healthier collagen firms, plumps, and brightens as well.
Ease of Use
This tool is small and lightweight, but it packs a punch. It’s simple; I just plug it in and select my preference. I’m impatient and want to see the magic right away, so I use the RF on high, which warms my skin, and the ELV on high, which tingles a little. The outcomes are truly remarkable! I used it before a wedding attended by all of my college friends. Everyone complimented me on how beautiful my skin was, and a few people inquired if I had done anything special.

Is it Worth it?
Yes, in a nutshell. My longer-term goals, such as addressing sagging skin and pronounced nasolabial folds, are improving after two months of use, but the immediate results are also quite impressive — more so than other options on the market that I’ve tried.
Using it on a regular basis has allowed me to save a few hundred dollars on an in-office treatment such as Botox or radiofrequency, which can cost well over $1,000 and often requires multiple sessions. The results may take longer to see because an at-home device is not as powerful as those used in the office.
