Body Shaping with Accent XL

For a firmer, more proportioned body
You may be dissatisfied with the appearance of your body. Although you may watch your weight and work out, you do not have the shape you desire. Isolated pockets of fat have collected in different places, giving you a bulky look. Possibly due to heredity, this accumulated fat can remain unaffected by both diet and exercise. Accent radiofrequency can help reduce the unsightly bulges that make you uncomfortable in your clothes. Gently reshaping your body, Accent non-invasively improves your body's contours, even reducing excess inches. The procedure gives you a sculpted look - without incisions, pain or downtime.

How does Accent work?
Accent employs three mechanisms to improve your body's shape. It applies deep dermal heating to the fat bundles (a) to bring about new collagen formation and skin remodeling. Stimulating enhanced blood circulation, the procedure also helps drain trapped fatty deposits and toxins. Finally, its thermal activity serves to shrink fat cells (b).

Where can Accent's RF treatment be used?
Accent can be used to improve contours anywhere on the body. It is frequently performed to give the abdomen a flatter and smoother profile, to slim the hips and thighs and firm the upper arms.

Is Accent safe?
Incorporating advanced safety precautions that cool your skin to prevent discomfort, Accent's RF is risk-free when performed under physician supervision. Numerous patients have undergone Accent treatment without any adverse side effects.

Treatment - What to Expect.
During Accent treatment, your doctor will precisely heat skin's inner layer (dermis), while its outer layer (epidermis) is continually cooled. Depending on the size of the treated area, treatment may take from 15 to 45 minutes. This heating action causes the deep structures under your skin to tighten right away and results are visible shortly after treatment.

Following treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. Over time, the heating action will stimulate collagen production, giving the skin a fresh, rejuvenated appearance. Generally, no more than five to seven treatments at 2-week intervals are required. While RF has shown to be safe, effective and long-lasting, maintenance treatment may extend and improve results.

Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is individual, most people tolerate Accent treatment well, and have little or no discomfort. Patients often describe the sensation as a 'warm massage'. The majority of patients require no anesthesia, though topical anesthetic is an option for sensitive areas. The procedure is not accompanied by any significant side effects.
