A few of the biggest insecurities people have with their bodies are cellulite, loose skin and stubborn fat in trouble areas. Unfortunately, many of these areas we are insecure about are presented to the world when we are met with an otherwise exciting weekend at the beach. But there is hope! There are a number of non-invasive treatments we can employ to help improve the appearance of skin and help stimulate and shape stubborn problem areas. Step out in confidence this summer with our body contouring and skin tightening treatments using Accent Radio Frequency.
Accent Radio Frequency
Accent Radio Frequency is regarded as the best treatment for tightening skin, reducing cellulite, and reshaping stubborn areas of the body. It is a completely non-invasive treatment that allows you to tighten the skin and improve tone without any pain or healing time. The Accent is a unique apparatus in the realm of radio frequency treatments, using two specialized tools to provide the most efficient treatment on the market:
- The Unipolar handpiece promotes the healthy production of collagen, your body’s natural mechanism for creating firmer skin. This tool is designed to penetrate deep into the skin, targeting fat and cellulite cells.
- The Bipolar handpiece provides a shallower penetration, targeting the outer layers of the skin. This tool is specially designed for more detailed work, such as skin tightening in problems areas.
Body Contouring and Skin Tightening
The Accent Radio Frequency tools send high frequency electrical currents to the cells of the body, causing targeted layers of skin to safely heat up. Selectively heating the skin tissue where collagen fibres are embedded causes the collagen fibres to contract, fat cells to drain and shrink, and stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce new collagen. This process tightens and rejuvenates, smoothing the appearance of the skin and reducing stubborn areas of fat.
Cellulite is a type of fat tissue that gives the skin a dimpled, nodular appearance. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not directly connected to diet or exercise – it is actually more dependent on genetics and hormones. This can be frustrating for many people, as changes in your diet and exercise regime, while positive for your health and body in other ways, will not yield substantial results in the reduction of cellulite. However, there is a positive side – Accent Radio Frequency treatments can help substantially reduce the appearance of cellulite, using electrical currents to break down the fat tissue under the skin, and help you step out with confidence this summer!
