Accent Radiofrequency (RF) is a relatively recent technology, for treatment to areas in need of skin tightening and cellulite reduction. For those who are looking for improvement without needles or incisions, then this is the treatment for you. Accent Radiofrequency is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment primarily for the face and is ideal for people with mild to moderate sagging of the facial skin, usually suiting those in their thirties to fifties best.
We can use Accent, either as a stand-alone treatment or combined with other treatments to enhance results. It’s a great way to tone, tighten and smooth your skin, rejuvenating the firmness of the skin and giving it a look of toned youthfulness.
Radiofrequency is an energy that causes heating by using radio waves. It’s a non-surgical skin tightening treatment for the face and body, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues. It’s the heating that causes the fat cells to disrupt and the skin to tighten. By heating the skin to a certain temperature you will improve collagen formation, increase the blood flow and circulation, and that will strengthen the tissue and improve the texture. This will address skin laxity and the firmness of the skin.
Accent radiofrequency is excellent for:
- Skin Tightening
- Stretch Marks
- Neck and Jaw-line Tightening
- Face Tightening
- Arm Tightening (aka Bingo Wings)
- Lines & Wrinkles
There’s no need for anaesthetic pain relief for this treatment. At the start of the procedure we lubricated the skin with massage oil and gently heated it until it reaches 42 degrees. The treatment is sometimes compared to a ‘hot massage’ usually with minimal or no pain or discomfort. The Accent treatments can take between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area being treated and you can return to work the following day.
Cellulite and fat reduction improvement, can sometimes be seen after the first session, but most people will see a significant improvement after several sessions. To get a permanent result, it’s recommended to have a course of six treatments, four weeks apart, but more sessions might be required, if the treatment area is extensive.
Collagen reduces as we age, but the good news is we can rebuild it, so the more sessions you have the better the result! It’s not an exact science, and you probably should aim for six sessions, and then reassess. Accent is proven in its effectiveness in tightening loose skin, promoting healthy collagen production and improving body shape. Just a few treatments are able to show a significant difference to how you look!
