Accent XL Skin Tightening and Body Shaping
Accent helps treat any problem areas you might have by tightening and firming loose, wrinkled or dimpled skin anywhere on the body. The treatment is frequently used to improve the thin, delicate skin that develops on the face, neck and under the upper arms. Many patients also seek treatment for a post-surgical or postnatal abdomen, thighs or buttocks.
Targeted Heat Therapy
Accent uses cutting-edge medical technology, called radio frequency. It uses radio frequency energy to heat the dermis, your skin’s inner layer. This targeted energy helps reorganize the cellular environment and stimulates your cells to produce new collagen. New collagen is what gives you the smooth texture, elastic quality and beautiful radiance of youthful skin. Depending on the size of the treated area, a treatment may take 45 minutes to an hour.
The Accent Difference: Visible Results
Accent provides visible results, because it is the only treatment of its kind to use a “dual layer” approach. This means it treats tissue at two different depths through both unipolar and bipolar radio frequencies. You’ll feel your skin grow thicker, tighter and smoother because of the dual layer targeting.
Patients often see results immediately. Over time and with follow-up procedures, your skin will tighten even more as new collagen develops. You may notice a slight redness, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. Generally, three to five treatments at 2-4 week intervals will be required. For larger areas, 6-10 treatments may be required.
