Accent™ Skin Tightening

Despite dieting and exercise, as we grow older the skin on our body ages. We can’t help but wish we could turn back the clock as we watch our skin lose its firmness and now thanks to Neo Surgery Center, you can now do something to regain your youthful tone once again. Double board-certified Dr. Brent Moelleken, M.D., F.A.C.S., offers many procedures to bring back your fresh appearance and one remarkable treatment he recommends is the Accent™ Skin Tightening System. Producing dramatic results, the Accent™ Skin Tightening System tightens loose, wrinkled skin, contracts and restructures collagen, improves skin texture and tone, and revitalizes the contours on your face and body. Compared to other sculpting skin care treatments, results from the Accent™ Skin Tightening System are quicker with less discomfort. The Accent™ provides a non-invasive approach to tightening, smoothing, and re-contouring the skin on your face, eyes, chin, neck, arms, waist, back, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. Today, you can have a youthful body and face at any age so call Neo Surgery Center to see if Accent™ is the right aesthetic cosmetic procedure for you.

The Accent™ Skin Tightening System is an FDA approved therapy device that administers cutting-edge Radio Frequency (RF). Radio Frequency is electromagnetic energy similar to that used in microwave ovens but unlike laser light energy, which has the greatest absorption on surfaces with less energy remaining the deeper you go into the skin, RF energy is not affected by surfaces and penetrates more deeply. Radio frequency energy causes water molecules in your skin to gently twist and vibrate and this causes friction, which creates heat deep in your skin. Targeting this energy helps reorganize the cellular environment and stimulates your cells to produce new collagen. For body reshaping, Accent™ helps cells release toxins and drain retained fluids and because the heat created is deep within your dermis, the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable.

The Accent™ System is the only procedure on the market that uses two individual types of RF technology: Unipolar and Bipolar. The unique dual RF technology provided by the Accent™ RF Skin Tightening System controls volumetric tissue heating to two distinct depths of tissue. The Bipolar treatment is well suited for areas on your face where the skin is thinner and more delicate, helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. 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. Used together, these treatments can create remarkable improvements without the need for invasive surgery. Bithermal RF technology uses dual-layer radio frequency to heat the dermis (your skin’s inner layer) with no damage to the epidermis (your skin’s outer layer).

Although most people find that the treatment produces a slightly warm sensation, before your procedure an anesthetic cream may be applied to your skin depending on your personal tolerance and sensitivity to pain. The area to be treated will be marked into grids with a special marking tool and then lubricated with a thin layer of oil. A reading of your skin’s surface temperature will be taken using a laser-guided thermometer (supplied with the Accent™ system) to assist Dr. Moelleken in assessing the heating effect that the RF energy is producing. Regular temperature checks will follow to ensure that the correct degree of heating is being obtained in the treatment area and also to confirm that a uniform delivery of the RF energy is being maintained throughout your treatment. After treatment, the oil will be gently removed from your skin surface and the area will be dried. No aftercare cooling is required but you may wish to moisturize your skin. You will then be able to go about your normal routine immediately after your procedure.

The IN-Motion™ technology in the Accent™ RF Skin Tightening System heats the inner layer of your skin (dermis) gradually so the process is very comfortable. During your procedure, a Handpiece is moved over the treatment area, delivering RF energy to your skin and patients have described the sensation as a gradual, very tolerable heat. Both RF energies are delivered to your skin’s surface with continuous contact cooling delivered by powerful cooled tips (TEC sapphire) which protects the surface layers as well as providing comfort. The Accent™ is the only Unipolar and Bipolar RF system that ensures that the heating effect required for the desired results is only present in the sub-dermal layers while at the same time the skin surface temperature is maintained at a comfortable level, (within 39-42°C).

The Accent™ Skin Tightening System smoothes and re-contours your skin and body from the inside, which allows it to rejuvenate your skin’s texture and firmness on the surface. The Accent™ system is highly effective at treating loose skin, cellulite, and unwanted fatty deposits. Working in three ways, first it heats underneath your skin causing fat cells to shrink. Secondly, it improves circulation to the area and finally, it stimulates collagen production which makes the area look smoother. The Accent™ treatment helps metabolize fat as well as contours any wrinkled or dimpled skin. By stimulating your cells to produce new collagen, Accent™ gives your skin the firm texture, elastic quality, and beautiful radiance of younger-looking skin.

The Accent™ System is a revolutionary treatment for skin tightening, skin toning, fine lines, and wrinkle reduction on your face and body without the risks or recovery period usually associated with surgery. Multiple clinical studies along with thousands of satisfied patients have proven the Accent™ treatment’s success around the world. Just days after the Accent™ skin tightening procedure, you can expect more youthful, energized and healthier looking skin.

You will be able to resume your usual routine immediately after your procedure and some patients may see increased blood flow and slight redness in the treated area, which is normal and will subside quickly. You will notice tighter skin in 2-6 months as collagen levels are replenished, however many patients see more youthful, energized and healthier looking skin just days after their procedure. Treatment time and the number of sessions you need will differ based on the level of tightening you desire. The procedure typically takes 45 minutes or less and treatments are recommended as a series of 4-6 to achieve optimal results. Treatments can be repeated approximately every three weeks and touch-ups are best if performed every six months to maintain results. With more treatments over time, results will become more noticeable and results are said to last from six months to two years.
