Accent ™ XL RadioFrequency
The Accent™ XL Radiofrequency (RF) treatment is an FDA-approved treatment that offers safe and effective cellulite treatment, body shaping and skin tightening without surgery or downtime.
RF generates heat using the target tissue’s natural resistance to the movement of electrons and rotation of water molecules within the RF field that creates the heat.
Accent™ Radiofrequency therapy is able to change the shape of fat cells and shrink and remodel the connective tissue that forms unsightly cellulite and uneven body contours. By selective dermal heating that stimulates the production of new collagen, Accent has been shown to improve skin surface texture.
It achieves lifting & tightening by tightening of underlying structures to stimulate collagen growth, by increasing blood flow to the treated area, and by destroying fat cells, which are then naturally absorbed by the body. This technology presents a non-invasive, effective and long-lasting way to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Accent™ is effective on the face, upper arms, abdomen, thighs and buttocks.

About The Procedure
Accent™ is a 30 to 45 minute procedure in which a treatment wand is moved back-and-forth across the area to be treated. Because the wand is constantly in motion, rather than the continuous heating of a single spot associated with other treatments, you should experience only a slight sensation of heat. This is minimized by a cooling element. Redness and a sensation of heat or dry skin are normal during the first 24 to 48 hours following your treatment.
About the Machine
Accent™ XL is offering two types of ergonomically designed radio frequency technology handpieces in one platform: BiPolar and UniPolar. This unique dual radio frequency provides controlled volumetric heating for both superficial and deep tissues without the associated downtime or patient discomfort.
The BiPolar handpiece effectively heats up superficial tissues, providing structural skin changes such as smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
The UniPolar handpiece has the capability to penetrate deeper tissues such as adipose or cellulite levels to create therapeutic local circulation, promote fibrous tissue breakdown and manage areas affected by edema through the re-absorption of excess toxins and fluids. The machine is particularly useful for treatment of the following conditions:
- Skin tightening or lax skin
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scars
- Cellulite treatment
- Fat reduction
- Body contouring
- Post liposuction
Post Procedure & Recovery
There is no downtime and no recovery period.
Will There be Any Pain/Discomfort?
A sensation of warmth over the treatment area similar to a “warm massage” is to be expected.
What Activities am I allowed To do
You should be able to return to your normally scheduled activities immediately.
What should I avoid
Avoid saunas, steam and hot baths for at least a week if possible.
FAQ1 Are results from Accent™ XL permanent?
Answer 1 If steps are taken to maintain and improve skin condition and body shape, results from the treatment can be satisfactory as well as long-lasting. Better long-term results can also be expected if you commit to a regular maintenance programme.
