What is Skin Tightening?
What it wasn’t possible until now, today with Accent Radiofrequency technology, the skin is collected and contracted without the need for surgery. The areas that can be treated are the face, neck, hands, legs, arms, abdomen and glutes. Treatment is for both men and women.
The equipment uses an ultrasound that allows the destruction of the fat in the area to be treated producing a gradual heating on the skin, once this is achieved the bipolar radiofrequency that acts on the existing fibers of collagen, strengthening them and producing in the skin an effect called collagen genesis (formation of new collagen), creating the effect of contraction of the skin and therefore reducing sagging. The homogeneous energy penetration avoids temperature peaks in the skin surface that resulted in acute burn sensations that forced the therapist to cease in the application with the consequent cooling of the tissues and loss of the therapeutic effect that is obtained by keeping the warm tissues for longer.
Duration of Therapy:
You can perform four to five sessions every 15 days or each month depending on the area and the needs of the patient, each session takes about 90 minutes.
Among the contraindications are patients with dermal alterations, pacemakers, defibrillators or cardioversors and metal implants in the area to be treated.
The result can be seen in two phases: the first occurs immediately after contraction of existing collagen, and the second is that over the weeks will improve the result, achieving the maximum effect, around the first 3 months, which is when the formation of the new collagen is completed.
The special design of the handpiece makes the treatment absolutely painless despite being working at much more power.
