Accent Family Radio Frequency Systems

"Most Promising New Aesthetic Technology"

Accent®XL was named the Most Promising New Aesthetic Technology in the 2006 Laser & Light Technology Choice Awards™. The Accent Family provides effective treatments for wrinkles, rhytids and the temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. The treatments are comfortable with a minimal risk of side effects and require no downtime or expensive disposables.

Radio Frequency

The key to the Accent Family of systems is the safe production of heat in the dermis and sub-dermis. Therapeutic heat is produced in two ways:

  • Tissue resistance to BiPolar RF current creates local, superficial dermal heating
  • UniPolar™ RF generates alternating electromagnetic fields that cause rotation and friction in the dipole water molecules of deeper tissue

These two safe and effective heat generation techniques give you all the tools you need to provide your patients with safe and effective treatments.

Micro Plasma Technology.

PixelRF for fractionated skin resurfacing uses Micro Plasma Technology which both ablates and heats the skin through controlled, focused delivery of energy without using disposables. Healthy skin around the treated area is left. This helps to accelerate the healing process by allowing the need for just the targeted tissue to heal and collagen to strengthen. The result is fresh, smooth, radiant skin and reduced downtime for the patient.

IN-Motion™ technology and patient comfort

The IN-Motion™ technology of the Accent Family represents a breakthrough in patient comfort, speed of procedures and repeatable clinical results. It provides a gradual thermal rise to the target's therapeutic temperature, with minimal risk of injury and with much less discomfort for the patient. The IN-Motion™ technology is administered using a sweeping technique, which enables a larger treatment area.

How the technologies work together

The UniPolar and BiPolar technologies work together to provide optimized results for your patients. By combining the UniLarge and Bipolar modules the Accent Family provides both superficial and volumetric heating. The body responds to this combined thermal delivery by causing the collagen fibers to contract and multiply. The result is a noticeable softening of wrinkles in the treatment area.
