{ Accent Fat Reduction }

What is the Accent® fat reduction and skin tightening treatment?

Accent® is an early-generation, non-invasive, radiofrequency bulk skin tightening and body contouring device.

How is the Accent® fat reduction procedure performed?

The Accent® radiofrequency applicator is applied to the skin. Using a thin layer of ultrasound gel, the Accent® applicator is moved over the area of body contouring concern or skin laxity. The gentle high-frequency electrical current oscillates skin and fat molecules, raising the temperature. Increased temperature results in collagen and elastin production and skin tightening, as well as fat reduction.

Who is a candidate for Accent® fat reduction?

SpaMedica’s non-surgical liposuction, fat reduction and skin tightening program combines non-ablative radiofrequency devices with permanent fat cell reduction, together with optimal technology such as the UltraShape™ or Liposonix™ high-frequency focused ultrasound to optimize the permanent fat reduction result. Best candidates for Accent®-type radiofrequency devices include those individuals who have focal fat contour concerns, such as the lower abdomen, upper abdomen and hip, outer and inner thigh and desire to have a body contour, fat reduction improvement, but do not want to undergo minimally-invasive liposuction surgery or excisional body contour surgery, such as abdominoplasty or thigh lifts. The best candidates for these radiofrequency, non-surgical, non-invasive treatments, such as Accent®, are individuals who are realistic in their expectations and are going to be happy with three to six centimeters of circumferential reduction and 700 cc’s of fat reduction. The results achieved with non-surgical liposuction programs are never as noticeable as as those of more invasive liposuction, but pleasing results can be achieved for realistic patients. Contraindications to radiofrequency non-surgical therapy include individuals who may be pregnant, the presence of pacemakers or any inflammatory, cancerous or infective lesions in the areas of treatment.

Once the temperature reaches the target 43-45 degrees it is maintained for 10 minuets per zone. The skin temperature is constantly measured and the energy or duty cycle adjusted as needed. Each zone is treated once weekly for 4-6 weeks to achieve fat reduction and skin tightening

What kind of anesthetic is used during the Accent® fat reduction procedure?

Non-invasive radiofrequency skin tightening and body contouring devices, such as the Accent®, are not painful and therefore no local or topical anesthetic is required.

Is the Accent® fat reduction procedure painful?

The SpaMedica non-invasive liposuction program combines radiofrequency technologies such as the Accent® and high-frequency focused ultrasound (HIFU), such as UltraShape®, or Liposonix™  and these devices are not painful and do not require any anesthesia.

How long does the Accent®  fat reduction procedure and program take?

The Accent®  fat reduction treatment of each zone takes approximately 20-30 minutes and treatments are generally performed once a week for four to six weeks. Combination therapy deploys radiofrequency bulk heating devices, such as Accent®, combined with high-frequency focused ultrasound, such as UltraShape® or Liposonix. The best non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction centers will combine freezing technologies, such as Zeltiq Coolsculpting, together with radiofrequency devices and/or HIFU devices to achieve the best possible permanent fat reduction and skin tightening results.

How long is recovery following each Accent® fat reduction treatment?

As these non-invasive radiofrequency devices are not invasive, there is no recovery period. Patients can return to their activities of daily living and high-impact aerobic activity almost immediately. The area of treatment is somewhat red and swollen for several hours following the procedure, but does not compromise the patient’s ability to wear any clothing or engage in any activity.

What kind of results can I expect following my Accent® fat reduction?

Toronto non-surgical liposuction patients who enter into the SpaMedica non-surgical fat reduction program have combination therapy using Accent®-type radiofrequency devices, high-frequency focused ultrasound and other efficacious body contouring technology, can expect the best possible non-surgical liposuction results. In general, this means between two and six centimetres of circumferential reduction and a one pant or dress size reduction in the area of concern. In general, better results can be achieved with more invasive procedures like the SmartLipo™ and BodyTite™ minimally-invasive liposuction treatments as well as excisional liposuction, but the SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program offers a no-risk opportunity to enhance the appearance of body shape and contour. Furthermore, bulk heating radiofrequency devices also result in skin tightening as well as cellulite reduction.

What are patients saying about their Accent® fat reduction treatments?

Toronto non-surgical liposuction patients generally feel that at SpaMedica they receive the best combination of high-tech technologies available for optimizing the permanent fat reduction, cellulite improvement and skin tightening.

How long will the results of my Accent® fat reduction last?

At SpaMedica, we focus on the permanent reduction of fat cells using high-tech radiofrequency and high-frequency focused ultrasound and other technologies that permanently reduce and remove the fat cell. As such, the results following non-invasive liposuction can be permanent. As long as patients are weight neutral and maintain their programmatic weight, the body contouring and enhancements should last for years. However, any weight gain will be manifested in those excess carbohydrates being stored in other body contouring areas, including the area of treatment and can distort the results that were achieved.

Is there any maintenance required after my Accent® fat reduction treatment?

Although the results of the fat reduction are permanent – that is, the reduction in fat cell numbers is permanent and will not need maintenance – the skin tightening with increased collagen and elastin is not permanent, however. As we age, skin gets increasingly lax. To maintain the tight, smooth skin and enhanced cellulite, maintenance, a single non-invasive radiofrequency treatment is recommended once every three to four months.

How much will the Accent® fat reduction program cost?

The SpaMedica non-invasive body contouring program combines the best possible technologies for permanent fat reduction and, in general, requires a treatment once a week for four to six weeks to optimize the outcome. The charges are by the zone. Treating a single zone costs, in general, one-third the price of a standard SmartLipo™ or a BodyTite™ liposuction. SpaMedica offers financing options to help finance the treatment over several years. Many patients do more than one zone and thus enjoy the preferred pricing reductions for second and third-zone combination packages.
