Is the Accent system a good way to tighten skin under the chin?
The Accent system is a radiofrequency (read sound waves) based system that uses as it’s marketing point that it uses 2 types of waves in the same system. In my opinion, there really is no proof that it works any better than the other radiofrequency systems on the market like Thermage. And in situations like this, I tend to favor the system that has the longest proven track record. Also Thermage is 1 or 2 treatments as opposed to 6. I’d love to see a company develop something better.
The question is more will you benefit from this treatment. These treatments offer the best results to younger patients (read 30-50ish) who have just very minimal loose skin around the jawline and under the chin. And if the problem is a prominent fat pad under the chin, the sound wave based systems are generally not effective. Hope this helps, Dr. I
