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.
Finally, effective cellulite treatment - Cellulite affects nearly all adult women of all races. Cellulite is far more common among women than men, which indicates that hormonal differences play a major role in its formation. While cellulite tends to appear in parts of the body where excess fat is deposited, it is widespread among both thin and overweight women. Characterized by a dimpled ’cottage cheese’ look, cellulite appears most commonly in the thighs and buttocks. While it does not represent a health threat, cellulite is aesthetically unappealing, and a source of embarrassment to many women. Despite its prevalence, and repeated attempts to find a surefire treatment, no solution has adequately countered cellulite, until now. Accent RF therapy is able to change the shape of fat cells and shrink and remodel the connective tissue that forms this unsightly condition. This technology presents a non-invasive, effective and long-lasting way to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What is cellulite? - Cellulite is formed in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. The fat cells are arranged in chambers, surrounded by bands of connective tissue called septae. As fat cell volume increases and surrounding septae loose their elasticity, it becomes difficult to hold the enlarged cells within the existing parameters. It is here that cellulite makes its appearance, as the fat cells are pushed up against the soft skin surface, resulting in the dimpled skin appearance.
Accent RF Laser for Tightening,Toning & Firming - This revolutionary skin tightening regimen uses advanced radio frequency (RF) technology to treat wrinkles, smooth cellulite dimples & improve skin surface texture non-invasively. As the inner layer – dermis – of the skin heats it induces the formation of collagen, essential for firmer, smoother looking skin. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep inside the skin. This part of the process is called denaturation, which means the loss of structure of a protein (collagen is a chain of proteins) due to, amongst other things, the application of heat. The denaturation of collagen fibers causes them to contract and, because they believe they are undergoing a trauma, they start stimulating the growth of new collagen. This results in firmer and tighter skin for more youthful contoured appearance. It is a totally non-invasive treatment, meaning that the skin is not cut for the treatment to be performed. By stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen in response to the treatment’s energy, the skin looks fuller and plumper, with unwanted lines smoothed and improvement in body contour.
Skin Tightening – Fibroblasts are the major cells in the dermis which produce collagen and elastin fibers. The thickness of the dermis varies from person to person and is affected by age, exposure to sun, cigarette smoke and environmental pollution among other factors. With time, cross links are formed between the collagen strands rendering the fiber less and less elastic. This process leads to the first visible signs of aging on the face including uneven skin tone and texture, wrinkles and folds around the eyes and mouth, and stretch marks on various areas of the body.
Accent RF Skin Tightening procedure utilizes RF energy to assist in breaking the rigid collagen cross links, to strengthen skin’s elasticity and enhance collagen secretion over time. The procedure is suitable for areas of the face including the jowls, cheeks and forehead as well the sensitive areas around the eyes, neck and décolleté. By minimizing collagen deposits, increasing blood circulation and promoting healthy collagen production the Accent RF causes skin shrinkage on the deepest level, the dermis. Best of all, Accent RF Your Body Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy provides steady improvement with excellent, long-term skin tightening results. The effect and result you will notice after the first treatment, and will continue to notice gradual improvement for weeks to come.
On what parts of the body can Accent RF be used? - Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy Accent RF Your Body treatments can be performed to treat loose wrinkled skin anywhere on the body. The procedure is frequently used for smoothing skin, shaping & toning thin, loose and crepe-like skin often found on an aging face, eyes, neck, jowls and the upper arms, as well as, cellulite on the abdomen, thighs & buttocks. It is also excellent for firming skin on the post-surgical or postnatal abdomen.
The Accent Experience - Depending on the size of the treated area Accent RF skin tightening treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes and has been designed so that it achieves maximum comfort for the patient. The Accent RF hand-piece is simply moved back and forth across the area to be treated and because the hand-piece is constantly in motion, the patient only experiences a sensation of warmth, which is minimized by a cooling tip on the device. Your skin may remain slightly red for thirty to sixty minutes after the treatment. All normal physical activities can be resumed immediately following the procedure.
Is Accent Your Body safe? - Absolutely, incorporating advanced safety precautions, Accent directs proven RF energy to precisely the areas of your skin that you wish to improve. Thousands of patients have been treated safely and successfully worldwide using the Accent RF laser system. The Accent XL device has been approved by the FDA in the US.
Does it hurt? - While pain tolerance is subjective, most people tolerate Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy well, and have little or no discomfort. Patients often describe the sensation as a “warm massage.” The risk of significant side effects is extremely low.
Why Accent Your Body Treatments Are Different - From lotions and creams to high-tech devices and medical procedures, it seems like there are millions of so-called solutions to younger-looking skin. Every new development that comes along claims to be an earth-shattering breakthrough, but of course they’re mostly just gimmicks with minimal results. Accent RF Your Body is a new alternative in skin treatment based upon Dual-layer RF (radio frequency) Thermotherapy. The Accent system is the only system on the market using two individual types of radio frequency technology: Unipolar and Bipolar. This unique dual radio frequency technology provides controlled volumetric tissue heating to two distinct depths of tissue.
How does RF work? - Three mechanisms improve cellulite symptoms and reduce fat. Radiofrequency energy targets fat cells in the skin, which generally reside around 20mm, or .75 inches below the skin’s surface. Radiofrequency energy applies deep dermal heating to the fat bundles to bring about new collagen formation and skin remodeling by breaking down rigid collagen cross links and increasing skin elasticity and improving skin texture. During the treatment, increased diffusivity of oxygen released by blood cells and increased cell metabolism stimulates blood circulation. Trapped fatty deposits and toxins drain from the subcutaneous fat cells and fat fluid is absorbed by the body and flushed out in urine. Finally, the thermal activity serves to shrink fat cells. The increased temperature to the treatment area facilitates the breakdown of stored energy (triglycerides) in the fat cell and when released, they result in the shrinkage of the fat cell volume, the skin is tighter and the body is left looking slimmer.
What are the benefits of “dual-layer” treatment? - Basically, the Bipolar module focuses on the surface layer of the skin, while the Unipolar module penetrates further for deep dermal thermotherapy. The Bipolar treatment is well suited for areas where the skin is thinner and more delicate, such as the face, helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The Unipolar treatment generates alternating electromagnetic fields that cause friction and heating in the deeper tissues, which leads to improvements in overall shaping and firmness. Taken together, these dual-layer treatments can create dramatic change without the need for invasive surgery.
When should I see results? - Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away; results are immediately visible. With time, new collagen develops, further tightening your skin and yielding even more beautiful, natural looking and firmer skin. While just one or two treatments can produce good results, your provider may recommend a series of 4-8 treatments to best improve and maintain your body’s youthful appearance.
