What is Accent Pixel
Accent Pixel is a radiofrequency device that efficiently rejuvenates facial skin.
Who is a good candidate for the treatment
The aim of the treatment with Accent Pixel is to induce the restructuring of collagen, to smooth out and tighten the skin and, at the same time, to reduce pores. It also helps to improve certain types of scars.
This type of treatment can be used for example immediately before the treatment by the client´s own plasma (by platelet-rich plasma) when traces left by the device allow better passage of plasma applied on the skin into the skin.
Before the Procedure
If you consider treatment by the Accent Pixel device, it is always necessary to undergo an initial consultation with a physician, unless you are a regular client of the GHC Dermatology Department. The dermatologist will examine you, evaluate the indication for the filler application and the skin condition, hear your expectations, recommend the most suitable course of action and suggest treatment alternatives, if available.
How is rejuvenation by Accent Pixel performed
The procedure is performed on a cleansed skin in the dermatology surgery office after local anaesthesia by a numbing cream. We use a roller which we run over the treated area several times. Because of the way how the procedure is performed, the entire performance is fast and suitable for larger treatment areas – e.g. the forehead.
After the procedure
The treatment should result in a mild smoothing of the treated area. This improvement occurs in the process of the restructuring of collagen in the skin during 1 – 3 months after the treatment. The achieved improvement then persists on a case-by-case basis, depending on the genetic influences and lifestyle. The effect is visible after one treatment already but, depending on the area, it may be repeated, e.g. once a year or less often.
It is advisable to avoid social events for about 4 – 7 days after the procedure. After the procedure, it is recommended to avoid sun exposure. If staying in the sun is necessary, it should always be short and always after the application of a sunscreen with SPF 50 for 3 months after the treatment preferably. It is advisable not to put on make-up until the scabs fall off. However, if necessary, it can already be used within 24 hours. The make-up should be removed carefully to avoid scraping off the scabs. Compresses are not permitted after the treatment. Rinsing with cold water is allowed in the evening on the day of the procedure already, but it is better to wait until the next morning. During the sleep, prop up your head to prevent further swelling. Exercise or swimming may be recommended 10 days after the procedure preferably. Professional cosmetic treatment is suitable rather a month after the procedure or later.Order
