Body Renewal Tip

At Body Renewal we have recognized that before one even starts on any body shaping program it is important that one is close to their ideal weight or BMI (Body Mass Index) as possible. A visit to one of the medical doctors at Body Renewal will determine whether you are carrying excess weight. If patients are overweight, our Body Renewal Medical Weight loss program is recommended. One can expect a weight loss of 8 to 12 kgs in the first month if the program is strictly adhered to. At Body Renewal, since we have incorporated the Body Renewal Medical Weight loss program into our body shaping treatments, hundreds of patients have successfully lost an average of 6 to15 kgs in the first 6 weeks and dramatically changed the shape of their bodies as this weight loss program targets resistant fat.

Unfortunately "a perfect body" has not been handed out by nature - it has to be bought and this usually comes at an expensive price. At Body Renewal we have recognised this problem and have come up with a solution… 3 D Body Rejuvenation - a 5 in 1 solution…which is affordable for most people. After consultation with the aesthetic doctor, a customised solution to meet your body sculpting needs will be recommended. As best results are usually seen after 3 to 6 treatments every client is provided with a 3 month long solution dependant on budget and expectations. Each treatment has prolonged effects thus a monthly treatment can be given over a period of time until the desired result is achieved. The effect of each treatment is accumulative with best results down the line.

Accent is a truly amazing combination as it non invasively treats subcutaneous fat from the double chin and jowls. A major benefit of Accent is that there are no downsides or risks as compared to other fat reducing modalities such as Laser lipolysis or traditional liposuction.

Benefits of Accent pre procedure: no pain medication, no topical anaesthesia, , no surgery, no injection of a tumescent medium, all of which are a significant risk for the patient. This is a truly walk in, walk out procedure.
Benefits of Accent post procedure: no pain medication necessary, no bruising , no swelling, no recovery, no activity restrictions, no compression garments and no downtime. In fact, most patients aliken it to a hot stone massage.

Given the choice, most people would rather choose a non invasive procedure like Accent to improve their unwanted fat than choose invasive procedures like traditional liposuction and laser lipolysis, which are invasive procedures with post operative side effects and downtime.

Liposuction is the most commonly used technique for fat reduction; however, it is associated with severe risks such as embolism, nerve compression, skin necrosis, problems with anaesthesia, infection and seroma.
Furthermore the success of liposuction and laser lipolysis is highly dependent on the skills and experience of the surgeon, therefore results can vary considerably. Hence, there is need for safer, non-invasive technologies such as Accent to achieve fat reduction and improve the facial silhouette.

During the procedure, your specialist will use a hand piece to apply the radiofrequency energy, moving the wand in a circular motion over the surface of your skin. The dual-layer technique allows the Bipolar module to treat the surface layers of the skin, while the Unipolar module treats the under layers for deep, effective dermal treatment. Both modules stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, improving the skin's overall tone and firmness. The Unipolar module uses alternating electromagnetic fields to produce friction in the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in effective contouring of the treatment areas.

At the same time, the unit's built-in cooler minimizes the sensation of heat you'll experience during the treatment. Most procedures take about 30 to 60 minutes to complete, based upon the size of the area and the amount of cellulite being treated.

The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts thereby accelerating the production of new Collagen and Elastin fibers which strengthens the dermis and improves the appearance of cellulite.

Accent is an excellent treatment option for most individuals who are looking for a non-invasive treatment for ageing skin or minimal to extreme levels of cellulite which is noticeably improved in only 8 to 12 treatment sessions two weeks apart.

The Dual-layer Thermotherapy Accent procedure can be used anywhere on the body to treat sagging, wrinkled skin and cellulite. Many individuals use the technique to tighten the crepe-like skin that often developed on the upper arms, abdomen, face, and neck during the aging process, as well as to firm skin irregularities that occur after surgery, traditional liposuction, laser lipolysis or following pregnancy.

In addition, on the body Accent treats cellulite and resistant fat such as:

  • Love Handles
  • Tummy Rolls
  • Buttocks
  • Saddle bags
  • Bra Bulges
  • Crepey skin especially on the upper arms

The results of the Accent procedure are immediately evident, as the skin structures respond and visibly tighten. As your skin develops new collagen, you can expect your results to continue to improve, and your skin to appear firmer and smoother. Cm reduction is also visible after this treatment as well as improved appearance of cellulite.

Accent can be combined with Lipodissolve injections, Carboxytherapy and Cryolipo Fat Freezing for improvement of cellulite, resistant fat pockets, and ultimately will help improve the texture of sagging skin on the body

On the body, a series of 8 to 12 treatments every second week are needed to improve resistant fat and cellulite.

Yes, Accent treatments are safe and recovery time is minimal. Most patients aliken the treatment itself to a warm stone massage. There may be some slight redness in the treatment area immediately following treatment, which generally dissipates within an hour or two of the procedure. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately following Accent XL treatment.

Yes, Accent safely treats all skin types without pain or down-time.
