Accent for stretch marks is a device that uses radio frequency technology that works to actually reshape the surface of the skin and encourage new collagen growth to fill in the vacant areas of the skin caused by the stretch marks. Stretch marks are created by many conditions – pregnancy, weight gain, and growth spurts all can contribute to stretch marks. Until recently, there’s been little anyone could do about stretch marks, but with Accent RF treatments, you can see dramatic improvement in as little as six treatments.
What can be expected at an Accent for stretch marks treatment?
The practitioner will be lubricate the skin with a thin layer of oil and a then read the skin surface temperature using a laser guided thermometer (supplied with the Accent ™ system) to assist the practitioner in assessing the heating effect that the RF energy is producing. Regular temperature checks will follow to be sure that the correct degree of heating is being obtained in the treatment area, and also to confirm that a consistent delivery of the RF energy is being maintained.
After treatment, the oil is removed, the skin is dried and you are able to immediately resume your daily activities with no downtime.
