Laser Skin Tightening in South Florida
What is Accent Your Body treatment?
Accent Laser, also called Accent Your Body, uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to treat cellulite and tighten loose skin. Dual-layer RF thermotherapy stimulates the production of new collagen and improves skin surface texture. Laser skin tightening 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 skin tightening results.
What is Accent Your Body 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 loose wrinkled skin anywhere on the body. The procedure is frequently used to treat the 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, chest, thighs or breasts.
When should I see results?
Dual-layer RF thermotherapy causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away; results are immediately visible. With time, new collagen develops, further tightening your skin and yielding more beautiful, natural looking and firmer skin. 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 skin tightening 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.
