Accent Radio Frequency
The Accent machine uses Radio Frequency technology which has been designed exclusively for cosmetic use. The heat produced by the system causes instant tightening of collagen and increases collagen production in the dermis.
The treatment is ideal for face and neck remodeling, tightening and lifting flaccid areas of the face, reduce wrinkles, increasing luminosity of the skin, body remodeling and cellulite, tightening areas of loose skin on the body, cellulite on arms, thighs, abdomen and buttocks. The Accent is currently the only Radio Frequency system in the UK which has full F.D.A. approval.
Accent RF, is completely non-invasive. The treatment works by heating up the skin, the dermis in particular to within 39-43 degrees for approx 5-6 minutes using a rolling probe emitting RF waves. This changes the collagen formation and encourages fibroblast migration and laying down on new collagen, with skin remodeling taking place over months and lasting approx 12 months.
In addition the RF wave passes about 2cm into the fatty skin layer causing breakdown of the fat membrane, so fat is released and picked up by the lymphatic system and disposed of by the liver for excretion. Thus cellulite and body contouring can be improved, although patient expectations must be realistic. It is more about sculpting than direct weight loss.
