accent rf treatments

Accent RF is a new method of treating cellulite and obtaining tighter skin.


Produced by Alma Lasers, the Accent RF machine uses radio frequency waves to heat the layers under the skin and underlying fat. It simultaneously applies a cooling effect to the skin.

This heating effect causes several effects: collagen formation in and under the skin (think of this as the scaffolding of the skin), fibroblast migration (these are the cells involved in skin healing and repair) and improved circulation.

This serves several purposes outlined below:


Accent Cellulite Treatment:

Cellulite is bumpy, irregular appearing fat mostly found in women implying both a hormonal and genetic cause. Usually found in the extremities it has a poor blood supply and a low metabolism making it particularly difficult to shed, despite the best efforts of diet and exercise.

The Accent RF machine is a clinically proven and licensed treatment for cellulite reduction and fat remodelling. Deeply heating the fat layer causes disruption of the fat cells, improved circulation and lymphatic drainage of toxins. It also increases oxygen levels in the tissues.

It’s not magic, it doesn’t make cellulite disappear but it does reduce it’s volume and improve its appearance.

Unlike surgical methods such as liposuction, Accent RF treatment can be done without any ‘operative’ procedures, anaesthetic or down-time. The procedure is usually pain free, with just a sensation of deep warmth noticed by the client.

Benefits can be noticeable after just one treatment but usually four to six treatments, spread out over two to three week intervals may be needed for best results.

Prior to treatment, problem areas are assessed, photographed and measured to document improvements.


Accent Skin Tightening:

Accent RF can also be used to achieve skin tightening. by heating the dermal layers whilst simultaneously cooling the surface of the skin for comfort.

This has lots of applications and the Accent RF machine is clinically proven to tighten skin and improve its appearance with fda approval for all skin areas including around the eyes. It also can help treat poor skin condition, acne and as a treatment for open pores.

The heating process involved in Accent RF treatment induces a healing process and stimulates collagen production. Collagen comprises 75% of the skin’s dry weight so is very important in maintaining its health, structure and appearance.

With its use around the face the treatment and effects are often referred to as a ‘non-surgical face lift’.

Again, there are no operative procedures, anaesthetic or down-time. Treatment can be completed within an hour and effects can be noticeable after the first treatment but usually several treatments, separated by two to three weeks are recommended for optimum results.

Accent RF also has a big role in tightening abdominal skin after childbirth, helping your stomach to snap back to its pre-natal shape. This can also be applied to people who have post weight and are suffering from lax skin around areas of substantial volume loss.

The procedure is not painful and is often likened to a hot stone massage.

Treatment areas are assessed and photographed prior to and after treatment to asses results.

Prior to any treatment a full consultation with the client will take place, taking into account their wishes and discussing the aims, objectives and potential of any planned treatment course.
