Accent™ Skin Tightening
Accent™ is a safe and effective way to tighten skin on the neck, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, and even the face (for what has been described as a “non-surgical face lift” by our Edmonton patients). Accent uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat tissue just below the dermis. This process stimulates the production of new collagen and improves skin tone and texture. The end result: more youthful-looking skin that lasts *.

The aging process causes loss of collagen in the skin. As the skin loses collagen, it also loses elasticity and begins to sag and wrinkle. Accent uses precise heating to restore collagen, increase blood flow and thereby improve wrinkled, loose, and “crepe-like” skin.
Accent RF treatments can create dramatic change without the need for invasive surgery or even topical anesthetics. Unlike lasers, it works on all skin types. An added benefit is that there is no downtime, so you can quickly resume your normal routine *.
During the procedure, a hand piece is moved over the treatment area, delivering radio frequency energy to the skin. Our patients describe the sensation as a gradual, comfortable heat. Treatment time and number of sessions will differ based on the desired level of tightening; however, treatment time is generally 45 minutes or less and no more than 3 to 5 treatments are usually needed.
Accent can also be used as a form of cellulite treatment in Edmonton.
You should be able to resume your usual activities immediately after treatment *. You may see increased blood flow and slight redness in the treated area, but this is normal and will subside quickly. Most people see tighter skin in 2 to 6 months *, as collagen levels are replenished. Some of our patients have reported seeing results earlier than this. With more treatments over time, results will become more noticeable.
