WHAT IT IS
Non-surgical skin tightening with the Alma Accent is a very popular procedure. The Accent uses radiofrequency, which is similar to microwave energy. Radiofrequency transmits heat deep into the skin, resulting in smoothing and tightening.
BENEFITS OF TREATMENT
- firmer, tighter skin
- decrease in cellulite
- no downtime
- virtually painless
- very affordable
What to expect
Accent treatment provides gentle and thorough heating deep into the skin. Circular motions of the treatment handpiece and non-invasive temperature monitoring ensure that heating is uniform. Treatment lasts about 30-60 minutes and most areas on the body can be treated. There is usually mild redness and swelling after the procedure. There are no significant restrictions on activity before or after the procedure. A series of treatments followed by maintenance treatments once very 3-12 months are recommended.

accent rf thermotherapy F.A.Q.’s
1) What is it like to receive an Accent treatment?
The Accent’s handpiece is applied in a circular motion to the part of the body being treated. Heat is transmitted to the dermis and subcutaneous layers of skin with the radiofrequency energy but discomfort is minimal. Depending on the size of the treated area, a treatment may take up to 45 minutes. There are no activity restrictions after the procedure.
2) Am I a good candidate for Accent treatment?
Accent is a safe and well-tolerated procedure in all skin types and colors. However, radiofrequency technology is not a substitute for surgery in patients with more severe skin looseness who may need a tummy tuck, thigh lift or arm lift.
3) Is Accent safe?
Accent Dual-Layer Radiofrequency incorporates multiple safety features. Unlike treatment with lasers for skin tightening, the energy is not concentrated on the surface of the skin but is diffused deep into the skin, greatly decreasing the risk of severe side effects.
4) When should I see results?
Accent Dual-layer RF Thermotherapy causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away; results are often immediately visible. The long term results are based on the development of new collagen fibers and are progressive over 6-12 months. 6-12 treatments every 2-4 weeks followed by a booster treatment every 6 months produce and maintain optimal results. A single treatment is unlikely to lead to visible improvement.
5) Is it painful?
Although pain perception is individual, most patients have little or no discomfort with Accent treatment. The sensation is best described as a hot massage.
6) Who will perform the treatment?
Accent is performed by our nurse.
