Accent XL is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure used to increase the tone and elasticity of aging skin. It uses radio-frequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Its ability to treat multiple layers of skin gives it an advantage over other cosmetic procedures aimed at treating loose or sagging skin.
Accent XL was created by Alma Lasers, a manufacturer of radio-frequency, ultrasound and light-based devices designed for medical applications in 2006. Its potential for aesthetic applications was recognized immediately.
Treating Different Types of Skin
Accent XL can treat fine skin layers, such as the face and neck, as well as thick skin layers because of its dual layer technique. The structure of the skin can be contoured, which helps reduce sagging.
Accent XL can reduce cellulite in various areas of the body.
Conditions which Prohibit the Use of Accent XL
Most individuals with loose or sagging skin can benefit from Accent XL. Those that have a pacemaker, have diabetes or are taking photo-sensitizing drugs can not use Accent XL. Pregnant women are restricted as well from undergoing Accent XL procedures.
Accent XL is a cosmetic procedure, so it isn't covered by medical insurance. Each treatment session costs between $400 and $600.
