Pregnancy, changes in weight, and aging can all result in loose or flabby skin, stretch marks, and other signs that your skin has lost elasticity. Diet and exercise alone often will not tone this loose skin. There are several possible treatments, but if you are looking for a noninvasive, pain free way to tighten your skin without downtime, Accent Laser Therapy might be a great option for you.
What is Accent?
Accent is a type of laser therapy that uses radiofrequency to heat the skin. It is applied with a wand-like tool by a licensed and certified healthcare professional. The treatment works by heating the skin, causing the production of new collagen. Collagen is the nutrient in your body that produces new skin cells and makes the skin tight, firm, and supple.
What Results Can You Expect?
Accent can provide some dramatic results. However, it is not a miracle. If you have severe flabs of loose skin due to extreme weight loss, a surgical lift may be more appropriate. Yet if you have mild to moderate problems with elasticity in your skin, Accent Laser Therapy can tighten the skin significantly for a dramatic if not perfect improvement.
Accent laser therapy has a few other benefits as well. You will notice that your skin looks younger and fresher after treatment, because collagen is being produced making skin appear radiant. You will also notice that stretch marks in the treated area diminish if not completely disappear. You may also notice some wrinkles or lines in your skin fade away as new collagen forms.
What to Expect
Your Accent Laser Therapy treatment only takes one hour, and there is no downtime or recovery time. No one will be able to tell right away that you had a treatment. Over the course of a few weeks after the treatment the body will begin producing collagen in large amounts, and you will start seeing the first results within one week of the treatment.
