The Accent technology is a Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy which stimulates the production of new collagen and improves skin surface texture. Treatments with the Accent system are quick and do not require anesthesia or a prolonged recovery time. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately. Best of all, Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy provides steady improvement with excellent, long-term skin tightening results.
On what parts of the body can Accent be used?
Accent can produce skin tightening for face, neck and under the upper arms. Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy Accent Your Body treatments can be performed to treat loose, wrinkled skin anywhere on the body. The procedure is frequently used for toning thin, loose and crepe-like skin often found on the aging face, neck and under the upper arms. It is also excellent for firming skin on the post-surgical or postnatal abdomen or thighs.
How does RF work?
During treatment, your doctor will precisely heat an area of the inner layer of your skin (dermis) using radio frequency technology. As the dermis is heated, a natural reaction occurs that promotes the creation of new collagen. The result: a return to the smooth, shapely and elastic skin of your youth.
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.
