Laser Body Contouring
in South Florida
What is Accent body contouring?
Accent body contouring, also called Accent Your Body, uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to treat cellulite and contour the 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, treatment provides steady improvement with excellent, long-term results. Accent can also be used to tighten loose skin.
What is Accent body contouring treatment like?
During the procedure, we will use the Accent system to precisely heat the tissue just within your skin’s inner layer (dermis). Depending on the size of the treated area, a treatment may take up to 45 minutes. Following each treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice a slight redness, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. Generally, no more than three to five treatments at two week intervals will be required.
On what parts of the body can Accent be used?
Accent Your Body treatments can be performed to treat areas in need of contour virtually anywhere on the body. The procedure is frequently used for firming skin in the abdomen or thighs. Some patients opt to undergo Accent body contouring treatment following childbirth or certain types of surgery.
When should I see results?
Dual-layer RF thermotherapy causes new collagen to develop, tightening your skin and yielding more beautiful, natural looking and firmer skin over time. While just one or two treatments can produce good results, it is recommended to do up to 6 treatments to maintain and improve your body’s youthful appearance.
Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is subjective, most people tolerate Accent body contouring well, and have little or no discomfort. Patients often describe the sensation as a “warm massage.” The risk of significant side effects is extremely low.
