Skin Tightening with Accent XL

A youthful body - at any age

We all age, yet none of us wish to see the signs of aging. Even if we eat right and exercise, the skin on our bodies grows looser and laxer, losing the firm, toned look of youth. Accent radiofrequency therapy can bring back that fresh appearance. Non-invasively, Accent's RF rightens loose skin, promotes healthy collagen production, and improves your body's contours.

Is Accent safe?
Incorporating advanced safety precautions that cool your skin to prevent discomfort or burning, Accent is risk-free.

How does Accent work?
During treatment, your doctor will precisely heat an area of the inner layer of your skin using Accent radiofrequency technology, while simultaneously cooling the outer layer of skin. As the inner layer is heated, a natural reation occures, promoting the creation of new collagen. The result: a return to the smooth and elastic skin of youth.

Where can Accent’s RF treatment be applied?
Accent RF can be used to treat loose sagging skin anywhere on the body. The procedure is frequently used to treat the thin, loose and “crepey” skin often found on the neck and under the upper arms. It is also excellent for firming skin on the abdomen, thighs, chest, and breasts.

Treatment – what to expect
During procedure, your doctor will use Accent radiofrequency to precisely heat the skin’s inner layer (dermis), while its outer layer (epidermis) is continually cooled. Depending on the size of the treated area, treatment may take up to 45 minutes. Following treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice slight redness, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. Generally, no more than 6 to 8 treatments at two-week intervals are required.

When should I see results?
This heating action causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away. With times, new collagen grows to further tighten your skin, yielding even more beautiful, natural looking and firmer skin. While a few treatments can products good results, your doctor may recommend follow-up procedures to best maintain and improve your body’s youthful contours.

Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is individual, most people tolerate Accent RF treatment well, and have little or no discomfort. Patients often describe the sensation as a “warm massage”. The procedure is not accompanied by any significant side effects.
