What is an Accent Your Body treatment like?
“During the procedure, your doctor will use the Accent system to precisely heat the tissue just within your skin’s inner layer (dermis). Depending on the size of the treated area, a treatment may take up to 45 minutes. Following each treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice a slight redness, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. Generally, no more than three to five treatments at two weeks intervals will be required.”
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 system.”
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 doctor may recommend follow-up procedures to best maintain and improve your body’s youthful appearance.”
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.”
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.”
