Which TRIPOLLAR STOP is best? STOP VX vs X vs V vs CLASSIC

So, what’s the difference between the various STOP models and which is best for you?

The key differences are:

πŸ‘‰ Multi- vs single-RF models
πŸ‘‰ Some have DMA (Dynamic Muscle Activation). It’s called ELV in the US models
πŸ‘‰ Some models have 3D thermal mapping algorithm
πŸ‘‰ Smaller vs larger RF nobbles (which heat your skin faster)
πŸ‘‰ Some US models have only one RF level, vs two in all other UK and International models
πŸ‘‰ The colours
πŸ‘‰ Not all models are available in the US
πŸ‘‰ There are some differences in the US models
πŸ‘‰ And of course, price

Available in the UK & International
(exc. US)

Tripollar STOP VX, STOP VX Gold Edition, STOP X, STOP X Rose Gold, STOP X Rose gold, STOP V, STOP Classic

Available in the US

Tripollar STOP VX, STOP X, STOP X Rose gold, STOP V, STOP Classic

All UK and International devices have two RF levels – HIGH and LOW. The US models STOP Classic and STOP X have one RF level.

Tripollar Multi-RF logo

The latest models (STOP VXΒ and STOP X) have larger electrode nobbles and Multi-RF (1 to 1.25 MHz) so are faster and more efficient at heating your skin. The STOP V and Classic have smaller electrode nobbles and single -RF (1MHz), which takes longer to heat your skin so sessions take longer.

Photo comparing the larger electrodes on the Tripollar STOP VX to the saller electrodes on the STOP V
Single RF is 1MHz current, Multi-RF is 1 to 1.25 MHz current – the interchanging mult-frequency RF reaches different depths in your dermis for more thorough and even heating.

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ But the STOP X US model is a little different because, although it has the big electrodes for faster heating, it sends only single-RF into your skin.

Tripollar DMA logo

The STOP V and VX models have DMA mode for muscle toning along your jawline. The STOP V has an earlier version (1st gen) where the small EMS pulses are on and off for around 4 seconds each. The STOP VX is 2nd gen, so the EMS pulses are continuous. In the US, DMA is instead called ELV. It works exactly the same in the US STOP VX model as the UK and International VX models.

Slow gliding movements along your jawline in blue RF + DMA mode.
Jowl-busting DMA for your jawline: causes small contractions in a thin muscle layer called SMAS which gives a toning effect, along with skin tightening from the RF.
Tripollar 3D thermal mapping logo

The special edition models STOP X Rose Gold and STOP VX Gold use 3D thermal mapping algorithm. This is a smarter, more responsive temperature sensor which continuously reads your skin temperature and adapts the RF power as it’s needed. This precisely controls the heat created, and gives a more even and accurate treatment around your different facial contours.

Here’s a quick comparison table of the key features and test results for the different Tripollar STOP models to help you choose…

So, if you demand the latest and best STOP model, buy the Tripollar STOP VX Gold with Multi-RF, DMA and 3D thermal mapping. It’s the most expensive model, but promises your fastest and best results.

Save a little and get the Tripollar STOP VX. It’s the latest Tripollar tech just without the 3D Thermal mapping.

Or choose any of the other models if you’ve a more modest budget. Sessions take longer with the older STOP V and Classic models, but they all work very well.
