Accent™ RadioFrequency (RF) energy treatment is technology for non-surgical skin tightening for either face or body for the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those people who either don’t want, or don’t believe they are old enough to have a surgical procedure.

Accent™ is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid 30s to 50s, of all skin tones and colour. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck. However, the Accent skin tightening treatment can be used to treat other areas of the body such as underarms (bingo wings), buttocks, chest, stomach, back, hips, knees, flanks, thighs, mild cellulite.

Top 5 FAQs for Accent RadioFrequency

How does Accent RadioFrequency work?
Open Close

In simple terms Accent uses radio frequency energy (RF) that causes the water molecules in your tissues to twist and vibrate. This motion causes friction, which in turn creates heat at very specific areas deep in your skin and the superficial layers of fat generating a focused wound healing response that can take 4-6 months to complete. This realigns and regenerates the collagen in your skin to improve aging and sagging, resulting in fresher, younger feeling looking skin.

How does the Accent Medispa device work?
Open Close

The Accent™ device provides controlled radiofrequency energy by using two types of hand pieces, a Unipolar one for deep (up to 20 mm) penetration and a bipolar one for more superficial (2-6 mm) penetration of the Radiofrequency energy. The Unipolar hand piece can improve and treat the appearance of cellulite by tightening the underlying tissues, improving the blood circulation and drainage of the fatty deposits to the lymphatic system. This ultimately results in fatty acid decomposition or breakdown and heat-induced fat cell death. The Bipolar hand piece penetrates less deeply into the tissue and is therefore more useful in facial areas such as the temples and jawline, where controlled heating at a more superficial level is required thereby avoiding any deeper more sensitive areas. By applying the RF Bipolar energy at a higher radiofrequency of 40 MHz (compared to 6 MHz with ThermaCool™ from Thermage or 1 MHz with Elos™ devices from Syneron), the Accent™ promotes controlled and pain free (for most people) heating of the skin in the treatment areas, with subsequent contraction of the collagen tissue and a tightening of the skin.

What is the Accent used to treat?
Open Close

The Accent device generally tightens, smooths and re-contours your skin from the inside out, leading to improved skin firmness and texture. In addition Accent can also help reduce and re-contour fatty areas in various parts of the body. It can work on virtually any part of the body. As a result, Accent™ treatment applications include: Cellulite treatment; Fat reduction on the arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs; Skin tightening on the face, arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs; Complete body contouring; Pre liposuction skin tightening; Post liposuction smoothing and skin tightening; Lipoma (benign tumour composed of fat tissue) treatment.

Will I lose weight with the Accent treatment?
Open Close

It is important to note that although Accent can lead to superficial and volumetric changes in your tissues and therefore a reduction of size in a given area, Accent is not a weight-loss program and it will not significantly alter your weight.

Am I a good candidate for Accent RadioFrequency?
Open Close

Anyone who has signs of aging or sagging skin is a candidate for Accent. The best candidates are in good health, have good health habits and typically take good care of their skin. Furthermore for patients who would like slight to modest body re-contouring using non-surgical means Accent can be considered.
