Accent Your Face and Body

For people who are looking for new technology to help firm loose skin, wrinkles or dimpled skin, radiofrequency devices have become a good choice, and now there is a unique advance in radiofrequency platforms called the AccentXL, which combines two proprietary radio frequency modes, bi-polar and uni-polar, using separate handpieces that provide therapeutic heat at different tissue depths within the body.

The AccentXL is a radiofrequency (RF) device that is FDA-cleared and designed to improve the thin, delicate skin that develops on the face, neck, and upper arms as well as the abdomen, thighs and buttocks.

Dual-layer RF thermotherapy stimulates the production of new collagen and improves skin surface texture. Treatments 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?

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 can be used for body contouring, cellulite reduction and skin tightening. It is also excellent for firming skin on the post-surgical or postnatal abdomen or thighs.

How does RF work?

During treatment, the clinical staff 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 is a return to smoother, more shapely and elastic skin of your youth.

What are the benefits of
“dual-layer” treatment?

The bi-polar module focuses on the surface layer of the skin, while the uni-polar module penetrates further for deep dermal thermotherapy. The bi-polar 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 uni-polar treatment generates alternating electromagnetic fields that cause friction and heating in the deeper tissues, which helps in body contouring.
