What is Skin Tightening?

Our skin starts to lose collagen and firmness as we progress through the aging cycle. Your skin may also show the effects of weight loss, surgical operations, and pregnancy. The skin can start to wrinkle and sag but fortunately, there are revolutionary new technologies available to help your skin regain the appearance of youthfulness.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

This treatment provides smoother and tighter skin with a non-invasive procedure. Our Skin Tightening RF radiofrequency technology treats fine lines and wrinkles and is effective in tightening skin. In clinical studies, thousands of patients experienced toning results and skin tightening. RF promotes the production of healthy collagen and improves the contours of the body.

The bipolar heating treatment works on the skin’s surface layer, which is more delicate and thinner than the skin below it. This type of radio-frequency would be used on areas such as the face to smooth wrinkles and fine lines*. The unipolar heating treatment penetrates deeper to provide thermotherapy. Electromagnetic fields are generated that provide heat to these deeper tissues and this provides overall tightening to the area. This is a non-invasive method.

Am I a Good Candidate For Skin Tightening?

You’re a good candidate for skin tightening if you’ve been having problems with skin laxity and have noticed more sagging and loss of firmness.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

A technician will heat a precise area on the skin’s inner layer, which is the dermis. Two types of radio-frequencies are used to produce this heat called bipolar and unipolar. In combination, these two radio-frequencies are able to reach different levels in the skin. As these different depths are heated, new collagen is formed. Elasticity returns to this skin that is now smooth and firm.

What Results Will I See?*

You’ll begin to see skin tightening effects almost immediately after your treatment; however, you may need to undergo more than one treatment to see your ideal results.

Is There Any Downtime?

Your skin texture may improve, as new collagen is stimulated into production. The Accent system is a quick and easy procedure that doesn’t require any anesthesia or a long recovery time. You’ll be able to resume your day-to-day activities immediately after treatment.
