TEL AVIV, Israel, October 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Worophong Manuskiatti has been invited to present results of his study "Treatment of striae distensae in skin phototypes IV-V with a TriPollar radiofrequency device" in the upcoming meeting of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Conference held on October 7-10, 2009 in Berlin, Germany.
The oral presentation will take place on Thursday, October 8, 2009 at 10:15-11:45 in session FC 2 Lasertherapy, room 43.
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.
Full study results have recently been published in the online edition of the Journal of Dermatological Treatment.
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(R) 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 delighted to have results of its study presented at the upcoming EADV congress. TriPollar offers a proven alternative to invasive treatments and it is important that dermatologists are exposed to leading technologies and solutions that they can offer their patients. A primary audience for this treatment is post-pregnancy women who would like to eliminate abdominal stretch marks safely, effectively and in a completely painless and fast procedure.
