What is Lumenis triLift™
The effects of aging can lead to sagging of facial skin and the underlying muscle and fascia layers. Collagen production declines with age, weakening the skin's natural support system. At Retuva, we are the only medical spa in Missouri that can help you undo the effects of aging with our non-surgical Lumenis triLift™.
This treatment provides dramatic lift and firmness without surgery, discomfort, or recovery time. It offers an alternative to invasive procedures for those who want improved facial structure and smoothness. Lumenis triLift™ improves all three of the main causes of facial aging: gravitational sagging, sun damage of the skin, and volume loss.
How Does Lumenis triLift™ Work?
TriLift™ is the hottest new treatment in aesthetics. This facial treatment utilizes Dynamic Muscle Stimulation (DMSt) so you can achieve an effect similar to a face lift. It tones the muscles for a lifted and rejuvenated look, resurfaces the skin for a smoothened texture, and plumps the underlying cell structure by regenerating collagen and elastin. The result is an immediately visible effect similar to a face lift that is safe, pleasant, quick, and improves over time with every additional treatment session.
Unlike surgery, noninvasive energy based treatment for the face has minimal to no downtime and does not require any anesthesia or special preparation. All this while still achieving an effect similar to a facelift.
TriLift targets 3 aging elements simultaneously: structure, contour, and texture. It utilizes complementary technologies and energy sources to stimulate the natural rejuvenation process in each element:
- It stimulates and activates the facial muscles with Dynamic Muscle Stimulation (DMSt) to achieve a well-defined, toned, and lifted look.
- It thickens and strengthens the dermal layer to treat the facial wrinkles with third generation TriPollar® RF by regenerating collagen and elastin.[i]
- It increases the natural volume and tightens and smoothens the skin texture with triFX RF microneedling skin resurfacing.

TriLift is patent pending and is the first treatment in the market to use Dynamic Muscle Stimulation (DMSt) in sequence with two other modalities to tone healthy muscles, reduce facial wrinkles, smooth, and resurface the skin: achieving an effect similar to a face lift.
What to Expect During a Lumenis triLift™Treatment?
Your triLift™ treatment will consist of three steps. First, an applicator with electrodes will be moved over the skin surface, emitting electrical stimulation to induce muscle stimulation, similar to a workout. Next, the RF microneedling device will create tiny punctures in your skin while emitting RF energy into the deep dermal layers.
Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, and you can return to your daily activities immediately after. TriLift is the first-ever treatment that tones, defines, and contours your facial muscles utilizing dynamic muscle stimulation without surgery in a 30-minute lunchtime session.
RF energy generates heat to provide an additional lifting effect while your body's natural wound-healing process stimulates collagen and elastin production to restructure the dermal tissue for firmer skin. TriFX microneedling works similarly but targets the surface layers of the skin to even out skin texture and improve the appearance of surface imperfections, including fine lines and wrinkles.
For optimal results, patients should start with a series of four treatments scheduled one week apart. These results will last 6-8 months and can be maintained with an additional treatment session every 3-5 months. There is no downtime after each of these procedures.
TriLift™ significantly improves facial volume, softens facial wrinkles, and lifts the muscles and skin for a naturally rejuvenated, youthful appearance. These are immediate results that will continue to improve after each treatment.
Following your non-surgical triLift treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling. Depending on your course of treatment, this may last a couple of hours or up to a few days. In the days following your treatment, you may see and feel minor scabbing that will naturally heal and disappear.
