Accent Your Body is a new alternative in skin treatment based on Dual-layer RF (radio frequency) Thermotherapy. During treatment, your doctor will precisely heat an area of the inner layer of your skin (dermis), and as the dermis is heated, a natural reaction occurs that promotes the creation of new collagen. The result: a return to the smooth, shapely and elastic skin of your youth.
Frequently Asked Questions about Accent Your Body Treatment
- On what parts of the body can Accent be used?
Accent Your Body treatments can be performed anywhere on the body. Commonly, it is used to treat the thin, loose and crepe-like skin often found on an individual’s 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.
- What is an Accent Your Body treatment like?
Your doctor will use the 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 weeks intervals will be required.

Absolutely. Incorporating advanced safety precautions, Accent precisely directs RF energy to the areas of your skin that you wish to improve. Thousands of patients have been treated safely and successfully worldwide using the Accent system.
- When shall I see results?
Believe it or not, results are immediately visible! Over time, new collagen develops, further tightening your skin. While just one or two treatments can produce good results, your doctor may recommend follow-up procedures to further improve and maintain your body’s youthful appearance.
- Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is subjective, most people tolerate the treatment 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.
