Fat & Cellulite Reduction
A new non surgical, non invasive treatment for body contouring, skin tightening, cellulite reduction and fat removal. It can treat most areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, arms, face and neck.
The Accent provides controlled radio frequency energy using Unipolar and Bipolar handpieces, for deep (up to 20mm) and superficial (2-4mm) penetration of RF field, respectively. The Accent RF Unipolar handpiece alleviates cellulite symptoms by means of three major mechanisms: (1) Dermal tightening of the fibrous septae due to thermal injury affecting the vasculature, which in turn initiates a cascade of inflammatory events, including fibroblastic proliferation and apparent up-regulation of collagen expression (neocollagenesis/remodeling); (2) Enhancement of local blood circulation (vasodilatation and hyperemia) and drainage of fatty deposits to the lymphatic system; and (3) fatty acid dissolution and thermal-induced fat cell apoptosis. In addition, the Bipolar handpiece promotes local dermal heating and subsequent contraction of the collagen tissue and a tightening of the skin.
