Why Accent Your Body Treatments Are Different
From lotions and creams to high-tech devices and medical procedures, it seems like there are millions of so-called solutions to younger-looking skin. Every new development that comes along claims to be an earth-shattering breakthrough, but of course they’re mostly just gimmicks with minimal results. Let us explain the real scientific evidence that makes Accent Your Body truly different.
Accent Your Body is a new alternative in skin treatment based upon Dual-layer RF (radio frequency) Thermotherapy. The Accent system is the only system on the market using two individual types of radio frequency technology: Unipolar and Bipolar. This unique dual radio frequency technology provides controlled volumetric tissue heating to two distinct depths of tissue.
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.
Accent Laser For Tightening, Toning & Firming
Wouldn’t you like to turn back the clock and regain the fresh, youthful skin of a carefree teenager? Sure, we all would. But until science develops a real-life fountain of youth or time-travel technology, Accent Your Body offers the next best thing.
Accent Your Body Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy stimulates the production of new collagen and improves skin surface texture. Treatments with the Accent system 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?
Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy Accent Your Body 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 is also excellent for firming skin on the post-surgical or postnatal abdomen or thighs.
Accent Your Body™ – Skin toning and tightening
With its tremendous media coverage, Accent Your Body has become one of the most recognized treatments for skin tightening and body contouring.
Accent®XL rejuvenates the skin’s firmness and texture in a fast, safe and virtually pain-free procedure. IN-Motion™ technology heats the layers of skin
gradually, so it’s very comfortable. Accent Your Body has created a new segment in the aesthetics market, providing you the perfect platform for treating
cosmetically undesirable laxity due to age, solar elastosis or post-surgical trauma, such as liposuction.
The first device of its kind, Accent®XL is a unique, multi-application, Radio Frequency (RF) based platform for the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and
rhytids that is virtually painless. Only the Accent®XL system combines two proprietary radio frequency modes – BiPolar and UniPolar – using separate
handpieces that provide therapeutic heat at different tissue depths within the body.
Accent®XL Radio Frequency System
The key to the Accent®XL system is the safe production of heat in the dermis and sub-dermis. Therapeutic heat is produced in two ways:
•Tissue resistance to BiPolar RF current creates local, superficial dermal heating
•UniPolar™ RF generates alternating electromagnetic fields that cause rotation and friction in the dipole water molecules of deeper tissue
These two safe and effective heat generation techniques give you all the tools you need to provide your patients with safe and effective treatments. The IN-Motion™ technology of Accent®XL represents a breakthrough in patient comfort, speed of procedures and repeatable clinical results. It provides a
gradual thermal rise to the target’s therapeutic temperature, without the risk of injury and with much less pain for the patient. The IN-Motion™ technology is
administered using a sweeping technique, which enables a larger treatment area for body reshaping.
How the technologies work together: collagen reorganization
The UniPolar and BiPolar technologies work together to provide optimized results. By gradually heating the dermal and sub-dermal tissue, the Accent®XL
provides tightening and re-contouring both superficially and volumetrically. The body responds to the combined thermal delivery in the following ways:
•Collagen fibers contract and multiply, which firms and improves laxity
•Connective tissue contracts to improve the skin’s contour, texture and architecture
•Circulation improves and retained fluids drain from subcutaneous adipose tissue to reduce edema, erythema and overall volume
The combination of both AccentXL technologies provides unparalleled treatment possibilities for your patients and unbelievable opportunities for
Cellulite is a skin condition affecting over 90% of most post-pubescent women. Even those with a slim figure often complain about cellulite external visible symptoms — its lumpy, dimpled appearance.
Cellulite commonly appears on the hips, buttocks and legs, but is not caused by being overweight, as many believe. Cellulite appears in the subcutaneous level of skin tissue. Fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by bands of connective tissue called septae. As water is retained, fat cells held within the perimeters of this area expand and stretch the connective tissue. Eventually this connective tissue contracts and hardens holding the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissue continues to expand with weight, or water gain. This results in areas of the skin being held down while other sections bulge outward, resulting in the lumpy, ‘cottage-cheese’ appearance.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is actually a fancy name for collections of fat that push against the connective tissue beneath a person’s skin, which causes the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker like the surface of an orange peel.
Unfortunately there’s no hard and fast rule about who gets cellulite, some claims are hereditary, poor circulation, poor diet, poor lymphatic elimination, excess estrogen, loss of skin elasticity. While some or all of these may be a factor, no one wants to have unsightly cellulite. Fortunately there are treatments to target this issue that are very effective.
Who gets cellulite and why?
Primarily the women who get cellulite are destined from birth to develop it. It begins to appear in girls around the age of 14 and increases as we mature when the subcutaneous skin layer thins and redistributes. Cellulite often forms in postnatal women and those who take birth control pills because the body’s waste system can’t get rid of the enormous flow of estrogen in the body. Cellulite can develop after a traumatic injury, where the circulatory system has been disturbed. A sedentary lifestyle leads to a hardening of the connective tissue, causing a dimpling of the skin.
Men rarely develop cellulite because their network of fat cells occurs deep in the skin. If you were to look at a map of the female body from the inside out, you would see that the cells are smooth in shape and nearly reach the surface of the skin, causing a dimpling effect. Men’s cells are shaped more sharply and reside deeper in the skin, rarely poking through to cause the ripples we associate with cellulite.
Some of the contributing factors for developing cellulite are:
- Heredity, but unlike the strength of your nails or the color and texture of your hair, you can do a lot to fight cellulite.
- Insufficient water intake. Water helps the waste system operate, flushing toxins from your body. Drink seven or more glasses of water a day.
- Diet. Poor eating habits (alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods) contribute to the formation of cellulite because the toxins they produce get trapped in the fatty tissue. And despite what you’ve heard, crash diets don’t work to fight cellulite. In fact, crash diets increase the risk of cellulite because the body thinks it’s starving and by attempting to compensate, it assists in cellulite formation. All saturated fats help build cellulite. These fats block the arteries and get trapped in the tissue as well, preventing sufficient waste and toxin elimination.
- Smoking is not only bad for the skin and lungs, but it weakens the skin by causing constriction of capillaries. It further damages the connective tissue that causes the dimpling effect of cellulite, too.
- Tension and stress can cause a muscle to seize up in pain; they can also cause the connective tissue that covers that muscle to seize up. Tension also blocks the tissue, preventing proper waste elimination and purification.
- Medication can disturb the body’s natural processes, disturbing the purification system that is naturally in place. Diet pills, sleeping pills and diuretics can also be a factor, oral contraceptives, which increase the body’s estrogen, cause fat cells to enlarge, leading to water retention. Retaining water inhibits the body from flushing the system of toxins, leading to the formation of cellulite.
- Lack of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to the formation of cellulite. Exercise decreases many health risks and also helps fight cellulite. It improves muscle tone, circulation and overall well-being, helping to break blocked tissue and purify the body.
