Accent Radio Frequency

Accent Radio Frequency treatment is for skin tightening, fatty pocket reduction and cellulite improvement.

The Accent Relax-F is a radio frequency device, using both unipolar and bipolar radio frequency. It causes heating in the deep skin and the fatty tissue (up to 6 mm in the bipolar, and 4 cm in the unipolar modes). Accent Radio Frequency treatment causes breakdown of fatty pockets/cellulite and tightens the skin. Most individuals require a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.

In the Accent Radio Frequencyprocedure, a smooth disc is stroked across the skin as the device is passed into the area of treatment. Gradually, the area builds up heat. The warmth is experienced by the patient/ client, and the staff continuously monitors the sensation, with efforts to keep it comfortable for all. Your skin temperature and appearance is closely monitored and recorded. After an Accent Radio Frequency treatment, the area feels warm for a short time, and then it returns to normal. You can dress and immediately resume your day.

There are a few people who should not be treated with this device. Please let us know immediately if you have any of the following conditions or if any of these conditions arise during the course of your treatment: cancer – autoimmune disease/collagen disease; pacemaker or other implanted electrical device; pregnancy; ‘collagen’ (or other filler) injections in the area of treatment.

There are a few risks with any treatment. The vast majority of individuals have no problems. Normal after effects include: some redness and mild tenderness of the skin (like a sunburn), mild swelling of the tissue, occasionally a few discrete tender areas which may persist for minutes to a few days. A less likely after effect is that the heat generated in the skin and fatty tissue could result in a small skin burn. A rare or unexpected risk would include a small dimpled scar.
