The Accent Laser, (Dual-layer Radiofrequency Thermotherapy System) 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. 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. 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 treatments can be performed to treat loose mild to moderate lax 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. The unipolar module penetrates below the suface layer of the skin for adeep dermal thermotherapy. 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. The unipolar does not improve fine lines in thinner skin.
When should I see results? Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten, results are visible about a week later. With time, new collagen develops, further tightening your skin and yielding even more beautiful, natural looking and firmer skin. The number of treatments varies on every patient, your doctor may recommend follow-up procedures to best maintain and improve your body’s youthful appearance.
