Cellulite is extremely common, although when you’re self-conscious about it, it can feel like you’re the only one. However, you’re not alone! Approximately 80-90% of women who have gone through puberty have it on some part of their bodies. More women have it than men, and things like genetics, body fat, hormones, and age play a role in how much you have. Fortunately, we have treatment options if you want to restore the smooth skin of your youth. The Accent Prime device is remarkably effective at tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Let’s discuss this treatment, how it works, and how you can get started.
What Is Cellulite?
What is cellulite and what causes it? Firstly, the lumpy appearance that is characteristic of cellulite comes from an irregularity in how your skin attaches to the muscles. These fibrous bands can tighten up, leading to gaps where the underlying fat tissue peeks through. While the exact cause is unknown, it is believed to be the result of a variety of factors. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, which makes age a significant contributor to the appearance of this pesky skin condition. Estrogen may also play a role and help explain why more women suffer from it than men.
Accent Prime Treatment For Smoother Skin
Accent Prime is incredibly versatile, utilizing a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound (US) energies to stimulate cell turnover and tighten the skin. During treatment, we apply US energy, which disrupts the fat cells. Over time, these fat cells break down and the body removes them through the lymphatic system. Then, RF energy is used to gently heat the area, stimulating tissue remodeling and repair. After a few weeks, you’ll notice that your skin feels and looks tighter, with visibly reduced bumpiness. Accent Prime treatment sessions are comfortable. Most people describe a warming sensation, with no pain. Depending on the severity of your cellulite, we may recommend several sessions to get the results your desire. To learn more about Accent Prime treatment, schedule an appointment today!
