 What Patients and Experts Are Saying

I love my neck

Superior technology, virtually painless

My face, jowls are much tighter now! 

I am very pleased with your skin tightening procedure on my neck. I didn’t have a neck for a while. Thank you for giving me back my neck!

Sharon, San Antonio, Tx 

The AccentXL system is superb. As a non-invasive therapy, no anesthesia is required. In fact, an overwhelming majority of my patients thought that treatments with the Accent system were painless

Peter Rullan, M.D. Dermatologist Dermatology Institute – Chula Vista, CA

I am very impressed with Accent and Juvashape skin tightening on my Jowl. Love it!

Jay, Boerne, Tx

I think the AccentXL system definitely has its place in the world. I even used it successfully to contour the face of a patient who had reconstructive surgery. As a non-invasive treatment, it’s the most effective technology on the market right now.

Steven Bloch, M.D. | Former Chief Resident in Plastic Surgery | University of Wisconsin | Body by Bloch – Highland Park, IL

The AccentXL system is safe, easy-to-use, requires fewer treatments than other RF systems for the treatment of skin laxity of the thigh, and the results last longer. The UniPolar mode promotes deep, diffuse tightening of the skin. None of my patients felt that their treatments were uncomfortable. I think the AccentXL is going to become a very popular treatment.

David Goldberg, M.D. | Dermatologist Clinical Professor and Director of Laser Research | Mount Sinai School of Medicine | Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York & New Jersey

We found that both the BiPolar and UniPolar modes of the AccentXL system increased skin tightening of the neck and the periorbital and perioral regions of the face. Unlike similar technology, the AccentXL does something in almost everyone.”

Michael Gold, M.D., Dermatologist Assistant Clinical Professor, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine; Gold Skin Care Center – Nashville, TN

I often find the Accent®XL system to be superior to prior generations of RF technology in the treatment of skin laxity, particularly on the neck. It is also a remarkable breakthrough that the system is painless and requires no anesthesia. AccentXL treatments can be performed rapidly with no downtime and can be applied concurrently with other non-ablative modalities, such as injectables to achieve better results in the ‘non-surgical facelift.’ Immediate skin tightening is evident and the results are often considered striking.

Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, M.D., Ph.D. |Dermatologist Director | Dermatology and Laser Surgery – New York, NY

We obtained remarkably good results with the AccentXL system. It was consistent for all of the patients that followed the protocol. All of them showed an improvement. Some dramatic, some moderate, but every patient expressed satisfaction with the results. Everyone said that their skin felt tighter the day after the first treatment. Of all the RF systems on the market today, I feel the Accent is the most effective technology out there.

Stretch Marks:

Stretch marks (striae) are linear skin marks that develop as a result of rapid weight gain or loss, when the skin is stretched, and as a result of some skin diseases. Stretch marks are due to growth and stretching of the skin in a short period of time when the skin doesn’t have enough time to respond to the pulling force. They are commonly seen in women and occur equally in all races. They are most pronounced on the abdomen, arms, flanks, thighs, and breasts. Treatment includes topical creams, lasers, and skin tightening devices.
