Of course a fast and easy treatment to get younger-looking skin sounds incredible but it is important to understand how it works and what you can realistically expect from your Alma Lasers Ltd. AccentXL System treatment. From lotions and creams to high-tech devices and medical procedures, it seems like there are millions of products promising to give you younger-looking skin. Every new development that comes along claims to be a miracle breakthrough but unfortunately, most produce minimal results. The real scientific evidence that makes Accent different is that it works by gradually heating the dermal and subdermal tissue to tighten and re-contour both superficially and volumetrically.
Accent Your Body is a new alternative in skin treatment based upon Dual-layer RF (radio frequency) Thermotherapy. Radiofrequency energy targets fat cells in the skin, which generally reside around 20mm, or .75 inches from the skin’s surface. Fat fluid is then absorbed by your body and removed in urine. 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. Basically, the Bipolar module focuses on the surface layer of your skin, while the Unipolar module penetrates further for deep dermal thermotherapy. The Bipolar treatment is well suited for areas where your skin is thinner and more delicate, such as your face. 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. Together, these dual-layer treatments can create dramatic change without the need for invasive surgery. The result is a return to the smooth, shapely, and elastic skin of your youth while your body is left looking slimmer.
Depending on the size of the treated area, the Accent RF skin tightening treatment takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes and has been designed so that you experience maximum comfort. During the procedure, Dr. Moelleken will use the Accent system to precisely heat the tissue just within your skin’s inner layer (dermis using radio frequency technology). As the inner layer of your skin heats, it induces the formation of collagen which is essential for firmer looking skin. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep inside your skin and this part of the process is called denaturation, which means the loss of structure of a protein (collagen is a chain of proteins) due to, amongst other things, the application of heat. The denaturation of collagen fibers causes them to contract and because they believe they are undergoing a trauma, they start stimulating the growth of new collagen. A Handpiece is simply moved back and forth across the area to be treated and because the hand-piece is constantly in motion, you will only experience a sensation of warmth and a cooling tip on the device minimizes this. Your skin may remain slightly red for up to an hour after your treatment and you may resume all of your normal routines immediately following the procedure.
While just one or two treatments can produce excellent results, Dr. Moelleken may recommend follow-up procedures to best maintain and improve your youthful appearance. Generally, no more than three to five treatments at two weeks intervals will be required. The Alma Lasers Ltd. AccentXL System has been proven to be extremely safe. Incorporating advanced precautions, Accent directs proven RF energy to precisely the areas of your skin that you wish to improve. While pain tolerance is subjective, most people tolerate Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy very well and the risk of significant side effects is extremely low.
The first device of its kind, the Accent Family is a unique, multi-application, Radio Frequency (RF) based platform for the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles, rhytids and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite that is virtually painless. Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away so the results are immediately visible. With time, new collagen develops, further tightening your skin and yielding an even more beautiful appearance. The benefits of a “dual-layer” treatment are that basically the Bipolar module focuses on the surface layer of the skin, while the Unipolar module penetrates further for deep dermal thermotherapy and compared to other skin treatment systems, you’ll see noticeable results much faster.
