Accent XL Face & Neck Contouring

Accent-Face-Contour-before and afterThe Accent XL utilizes radiofrequency (RF), which is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment performed on many people who lack recovery time. Radiofrequency is generated though the hand piece and creates heat as it is moved along the skin. This heat stimulates fibroblasts in the skin to restart their production of collagen and strengthen the skin’s elasticity. By stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen in response to the treatment’s energy, the skin looks fuller and plumper, with unwanted lines smoothed.

The Accent XL is a totally non-invasive treatment, meaning that the top layers of the skin are not damaged for the treatment to be performed. Most patients leave the office appearing slightly pink in color, but this fades rapidly and most people can go immediately back to their regular schedule with no recovery time. There are no special creams or products that are required to be used in conjunction with the treatment, but we often combine the treatment with hyaluronic- based topical products to enhance and maintain the results obtained.

A treatment may last approximately 30 minutes and feels like a warm massage. The session involves the use of two hand pieces which are passed over the area/s you are looking to improve. Most patients initially require a series of 4 to 6 treatments done a month apart from each other to obtain the best results. Then, once the initial series is completed, most patients will progress to a maintenance program with a treatment done every quarter to maintain the results.

Accent XL is often performed in conjunction with Botox or Fillers, such as Juvederm or Radiesse to enhance the results. These treatments may be performed on the same treatment visit. This combination has been very successful in improving the skin from the inside and on the outside.
