Frequently Asked Questions
What is Legend RF?
Legend Radio Frequency (RF) technology is an innovative proprietary 3rd generation RF technology developed by Pollogen Ltd. Legend harnesses the inherent benefits of RF technology and overcomes the limitations of previous mono-polar and bi-polar technologies. It is simple to use and extremely efficient. TriPollar treatments deliver immediate visible facial contouring effects from the first treatment – and long-lasting aesthetic results without surgery or downtime.
Is the Legend technology safe?
Legend technology is FDA cleared and has been proved safe and effective in clinical studies. RF has been used in medicine for over 75 years. In aesthetic medicine, RF has been used for more than 10 years.
What is Radiofrequency (RF) technology and how does it work?
Radiofrequency, in the context of aesthetic applications, is a general method to heat deep skin layers by delivering High Frequency (HF) electrical current via electrodes into the body. Body cells do not interpret High Frequency electrical current as electricity but rather as an energy source. The skin layers act as resistors to the HF electrical current and depending on their resistance they heat up to varying degrees. The heat which is generated in the dermis and subcutaneous layers is responsible for the clinical outcome.
What is the difference between Legend, mono-polar and bi-polar RF?
Mono-polar, the first generation of RF technology, uses one electrode to deliver electrical energy and a return pad connected to the leg or back to close the electrical circuit. The electric current passes through a large part of the body so that there is no control over the depth of penetration and area affected.
The next generation, Bi-polar technology, uses two electrodes on the treatment applicator, with the current flowing between the two electrodes. This confines the treatment area somewhat, but still does not achieve effective treatment focus.
Since both Mono-polar and Bi-polar RF technologies are not focused, they usually require higher energy levels to achieve clinical results. The high energy heats the skin that is near the electrodes. This can cause pain and a higher risk of burns and skin damage. In addition, these older technologies require cooling mechanisms to mitigate these risks, which result in less efficient heating of the skin layers.
With Legend RF technology, controlled energy is delivered via three or more electrodes, centered between them, and limited only to the treatment area. This focused energy delivery results in improved treatment efficacy that provides immediate visible results from the 1st treatment. The treatment is painless and pleasant because of the relatively low power needed.
Can we combine Legend treatments with other treatments?
How does the operator select the treatment parameters?
What does a Legend treatment feel like?
Legend treatment feels like a warm massage. It is pleasant and pain-free. Some patients even report falling asleep during treatments.
What is the down time after a Legend treatment?
There is no down time after a Legend treatment. One can resume regular activity immediately after the treatment.
What does the patient need to do to prepare for a Legend treatment?
There are no special requirements or preparations for a Legend treatment.
How many Legend facial treatments are recommended?
The standard protocol for facial treatments with the Apollo device calls for 4- 6 treatments. However, if needed, more treatments can be added according to the condition being treated. Touch-up treatments are recommended every 1-3 months to maintain and improve the treatment results.
How long is the Legend facial treatment?
The duration of the Legend facial treatment is about 30-45 minutes. Your practitioner will determine your facial treatment protocol.
How soon can I see results?
The majority of patients are able to see visible results immediately after the 1st facial treatment. However, in order to achieve long-term results, you will need to undergo several Legend treatments.
How long will the results last?
The results should last several months, however, since the body continues to age and the aging process cannot be stopped, it is recommended to undergo preventative treatments every few months in order to maintain the results.
If I have metal implants in my knees, can I have a Legend facial treatment?
Yes, you can undergo a facial treatment if the metal implants are in a different body area. In general, treatment should not be performed over metal implants. If you have teeth fillings, braces etc. you can also undergo treatment. If the area feels sensitive, dental cotton pads or slightly damped gauze can be inserted between the teeth and cheeks.
Can a Legend treatment be performed every day?
