The best candidates for Accent treatment include those individuals who have focal fat contour concerns in areas such as the lower abdomen, upper abdomen and hip, outer and inner thigh and desire to have a body contour, fat reduction improvement.

Candidates also do not want to undergo minimally-invasive liposuction surgery or excisional body contour surgery, such as abdominoplasty or thigh lifts.

Procedure

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

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.

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.

The Accent  fat reduction treatment of each zone takes approximately 20-30 minutes and treatments are generally performed once a week for eight 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.

Maintenance

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.

Outcomes

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. 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.

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.

Cost and Payment

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
