Facial Firming with radiofrequencies (Accent laser)
Radiofrequencies are used in aesthetic medicine in order to deal with cellulite and fat distribution to various areas of both body and face. The thermal effect transferred under the skin contributes to increase circulation while with the help of this controlled heat lipids shrink.
In addition, fibroblasts are “excited” by the radiofrequencies and produce more collagen resulting in a more youthful, firm and smooth skin in just 2-3 months. The Accent Laser system offers the advantage of producing two types of radiofrequencies both unipolar and bipolar. Bipolar radiofrequencies are applied with a special head in order to heat the skin tissues on a more superficial level (in areas like the one around the eyes or the neck area). On the other hand, when the unipolar is applied the heat is transferred through the special head deeper in areas like the cheeks. The doctor after observing each woman’s needs decides to use either a unipolar or a bipolar radiofrequency to achieve the best results.
Accent laser can be applied to the area around the eyes in order to soften and smooth fine lines and wrinkles located on the so-called “crow’s feet” and to deal with the swelling that sometimes occurs in the lower eyelid. It can also be applied to the cheeks in order not only to improve your skin’s appearance but also to tighten the area treated, thus, offering to the face a more youthful look. Jowls is another area where the laser can be applied with satisfying results when there is fat deposition in this area. The doctor properly regulates the intensity of the machine. The effect of the unipolar radiofrequency causes fat to shrink and epidermal nodularity to improve without having to have a surgery. Another area that can be improved with the use of radiofrequencies is the neck. The neck skin is thin enough and due to frequent sun exposure it appears to be wrinkled and sagging. But it is possible to improve its appearance with the help of the special bipolar radiofrequency head.
During the Accent treatment the doctor applies the special head of the device to the area that needs improvement after covering it with a special lubricant. It is a completely safe treatment since the doctor is able to monitor at all times the heat induced to the skin.
In addition, thanks to the special cooling mechanism of the head the patient feels no pain. After the application the skin shows a mild redness that subsides gradually within the next 24 hours. The treatment lasts 10-20 minutes and can be repeated after 2 weeks. Usually a total of 4-6 sessions are needed depending, of course, on the problem’s size and the skin’s response to the treatment.
The procedure is completely comfortable, fast, and painless and after the application you can resume your everyday activities.
Cellulite and localized fat treatment with radiofrequencies (ACCENT)
The Accent mechanism uses both unipolar and bipolar radiofrequencies in order to improve your body’s appearance. The Accent system helps to smooth and sculpt loose or wrinkled skin on any part of your body. This treatment gives you a flat stomach, thinner thighs and hips while it also achieves an overall firming.
The thermal effect induced to the tissues causes fat cells to shrink while at the same time stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen. Therefore, skin quality and blood circulation are improved. The Accent treatment can be applied to areas where excess body fat appears either alone or in combination with cellulite. It improves skin quality in the area of the abdomen, achieves an overall firming and helps in loosing points in this area. Accent also treats localized fat in areas such as on the side of the waist, thighs, buttocks, buns, knees and legs; that is, generally in areas where excess fat and cellulite develop. It offers two heads for body treatments. Firstly, there is the unipolar head which transfers heat to the tissues. Secondly, there is the head that combines unipolar radiofrequencies with massaging for better lymphatic drainage. The radiofrequency treatment (Accent) is repeated every 2 weeks. It usually takes a total of 6-8 sessions. The results are immediate but further improvement is noticed e
ven during the first 3-4 months after the application. The procedure is completely comfortable, fast, painless and you can get back to your everyday activities after the application.
