Date:8/18/2009

TEL AVIV, Israel, August 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Pollogen's TriPollar(TM) technology, the most advanced 3rd generation radio frequency solution for facial and body contouring, has been clinically proven to be effective in treating stretch marks or striae distensae.

In the clinical study, seventeen females with stretch marks underwent six weekly treatments with the apollo(TM) device-Pollogen's latest aesthetic solution based on TriPollar(TM) technology. Results showed that at one week after the final (sixth) treatment, 38.2% and 11.8% of the patients were assessed to have 25-50% and 51-75% improvement in the appearance of their stretch marks, respectively. The long term effect of the treatment was confirmed during the 6 weeks follow up which showed that a higher percentage of the patients were rated to have improvement of their stretch marks, including 26.5% and 5.9% showing 51-75% and >75% improvement, respectively. None of the participants were rated as having no improvement in their clinical appearance of stretch marks. Patient satisfaction was also measured and 65% of patients reported that they were very satisfied with the treatment, 23% were satisfied and 12% were slightly satisfied.

Dr. Manuskiatti commented: "Stretch marks are a skin condition that has been traditionally very challenging to treat. The study confirms that collagen remodeling induced by RF heating is an effective mechanism for improving the surface appearance of stretch marks. I am delighted that TriPollar(TM) technology delivered significant measurable results that were maintained during the long term follow-up examination and that patients reported a pain-free and pleasant experience".

Company Founder and CEO, Dr Zion Azar, stated: "Pollogen is dedicated to providing patients with a wide range of aesthetic solutions. In addition to facial rejuvenation and body sculpting, TriPollar(TM) is a fast, effective, non-invasive way to significantly reduce stretch marks. A primary audience for this treatment is post-pregnancy women who would like to eliminate abdominal stretch marks. Pollogen is delighted with the results of the clinical trial which provides clear scientific evidence supporting the safety and effectiveness of TriPollar(TM) technology."
