Accent uses cutting-edge medical technology, called radio frequency. It uses radio frequency to energy to heat the dermis, your skin's inner layer. This targeted energy helps recognize the cellular environment and stimulates your cells to release toxins, drain retained fluids and produce new collagen. You'll see increased blood circulation and connective tissue shrinkage from the heat therapy. Both of these actions will improve your skin's contour and texture - which gives you that toned, firm look. Depending on the size of the treated area, a treatment may take from 15-45 minutes. You'll see immediate results.
Sure, a fast and easy treatment to get younger-looking skin sounds great — but of course, you want to know what it's really like. We understand that, so we want to give you some idea of what you can realistically expect if you choose to participate in the Accent Your Body treatment. 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 laser 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. http://www.accentyourbody.com/pages/before_after.html
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.
