Skin Tightening Procedures Hawaii
Accent XL Skin Tightening
Another of our skin treatments, the Accent XL, is an advanced modality that improves texture of skin, gently reshapes fat and reduces appearance of cellulite. The Accent XL uses radiofrequency energy to heat tissue to between 39 and 41 degrees Celsius, increasing metabolism in that area. To maximize results, patients are asked to maintain a well-balanced diet and a good exercise program, and to drink plenty of water. Favorite treatment areas for the Accent XL include jowls and turkey neck. Longer, more involved treatments can be done on the back of arms, abdomen, “love handles”, thighs, or buttocks. Patients should be at or near their ideal weight prior to this treatment, which is excellent for the final “stubborn areas”.
- Sagging skin and fat under the neck known as Turkey neck
- Sagging skin on the cheeks and appearance of jowls
Excellent results are visible on these problem areas with the Accent XL, a radio-frequency device that is virtually pain-free. Patients see skin tightening, smoothing and reduced appearance of cellulite with no down time and without painful surgery or general anesthesia.
The Accent XL stimulates collagen formation that helps tighten the skin on the face and neck and larger areas like stomach and thighs. The procedure also helps reshape areas with cellulite by reducing adipose tissue and retained fluids.
Treatment requires no anesthetic and takes approximately 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Some redness may occur on the treated area which subsides within 24 hours. Normal activity man be resumed immediately. Dr. Tantisira will recommend an individualized treatment plan, which is normally 5-7 sessions with each session scheduled 2 weeks apart.
