ACCENT

Accent gently reshapes your figure and can even help you lose a few unwanted inches …without surgery!

Through selective dermal heating, Accent’s radiofrequency stimulates the production of new collagens and improves your figure. Accent’s body recontouring yields excellent, lasting results and allows for continuous improvement.

Accent heats up fat deposits under the deep dermis to remodel the skin and stimulate the formation of new collagen. This thermal procedure increases blood circulation that in turn, drains fat deposits and toxins, and reduces the volume of fat cells. It is often a complement to Liposonix, Velashape or Thermage treatments.

What does the treatment involve?

The treatment is quick and requires no anesthesia or convalescence. You can go back to your daily activities right after the treatment.

Accent will sculpt your figure without incisions, pain, or convalescence. 

Length of the session: From 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the region being treated
Frequency: 3 to 12 treatments, one week apart
Maintenance Phase: A maintenance treatment  can prolong and improve results.

Are there side effects?

Accent treatments do not cause any unwanted effects.

Is it painful?

During the treatment, while heat is applied on the inside layers of the skin (dermis), the surface of the skin (epidermis) is being kept cool. Patients often describe the sensation as being like “a warm massage.”

While each individual has a different pain threshold, most patients do not require anesthesia. For the more sensitive regions of the body, a topical anesthesia may be considered.

What can I expect in terms of results?

Since Accent causes an immediate tightening of the deep skin structures, results are noticeable shortly after treatment.

The treatment is often applied to flatten and smooth the abdomen, to reduce the size of the hips and legs, and to firm the arms. It will:

  • Thin and redesign the contours of the figure
  • Tighten tissues and tone the skin
  • Minimize sagging skin
  • Reduce the circumference of the treated zones
  • Stimulate circulation

Accent technology: for a firmer and better-proportioned body 

What skin conditions can Accent correct?

  • Cellulite
  • Sagging skin

Important: the Accent treatment is not a substitute for liposuction nor is it a way to lose weight. However, a reduction in the volume of the treated regions can be observed in almost all patients.

Is this treatment for me?

Not all skin types react in the same way to cosmetic dermatology. Only a qualified dermatologist can diagnose the best course of action. As part of a first consultation, Dr. Charbonneau, cosmetic dermatology specialist, will be happy to answer all of your questions and give you the tools you need to make an informed decision.
