The Comfortable Way to Treat Wrinkles, Rhytids and More
The first device of its kind, the the Accent Family is two, unique, multi-application Radio Frequency (RF) based platforms for the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles, rhytids and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite that is virtually painless. Only the Accent Family combines two proprietary radio frequency modes – BiPolar and UniPolar using separate handpieces that provide therapeutic heat at different tissue depths within the body.
The Accent Family dual-layer thermotherapy platforms offer:
- Non-invasive and fractionated ablative solutions in one device
- Fast, easy to use, plug and play technology
- Intuitive interface with pre-set parameters.*
- Easily delegatable with temperature control monitoring for consistent, more reliable results
- Treatment potential over the entire body
- Consistent delivery of results regardless of climate or season
- No disposable or per treatment consumable needed
- Expandable platform technology
Pixel RF – a breakthrough technology in skin resurfacing.
The new Pixel uses micro plasma radiofrequency technology to improve skin imperfections without the skin color limitation. Pixel micro plasma technology both ablates and heats the skin through controlled, focused delivery of energy without using expensive disposables.
Through patient-friendly Accent Your Body procedures, the Accent Family can add proven revenue streams to your practicequickly and easily. With no need to purchase expensive tips, grids, grounding pads or other disposables, the Accent Family offers the treatments patients are looking for with almost no pain or downtime. Alma Lasers supports your Accent investment through theAlma Lasers Marketing Assistance (A.L.M.A.) programs, Office by Alma marketing materials, and an ongoing schedule of training programs.
“I often find the Accent®XL system to be superior to prior generations of RF technology, especially when treating the neck. It is also a remarkable breakthrough that the system is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. AccentXL treatments can be performed rapidly with no downtime.”

Accent Family Radio Frequency Systems.
Fractionated Skin Resurfacing
The Accent Family platforms now features the PixelRF. Using Micro Plasma Technology and In-Motion™ refractive radiofrequency, the PixelRF allows you to both ablate and heat skin through a controlled, focused delivery of energy. Healthy skin around the treated area helps to accelerate the healing process thus improving result and reducing patient down. The result is fresh, smooth and radiant skin. Best of all, the PixelRFrequires no consumables.
Treat Wrinkles and Rhytids the Comfortable Way.
The Accent Family platforms provide you with the industry’s best dual-mode Radio Frequency solution.
Accent Your Body™
With its tremendous media coverage, Accent Your Body has become one of the most recognized treatments available today. The IN-Motion™ technology heats the layers of skin gradually so as to help your patients stay comfortable. The procedure is not only quick and comfortable, it’s effective.
Accent Your Body Equipment
- The UniLarge handpiece provides deep dermal and subdermal heating of large areas.
- The BiPolar handpiece provides local, superficial dermal heating.
- The UniForm handpiece uses the same technology as the UniLarge handpiece but incorporates mechanical rollers to offer cellulite improvements.
- The PixelRF handpiece is designed to provide skin resurfacing by both ablating and heating the skin.
Platform technology gives you better choices

Accent Family Radio Frequency Systems
“Most Promising New Aesthetic Technology”
Accent®XL was named the Most Promising New Aesthetic Technology in the 2006 Laser & Light Technology Choice Awards™. The Accent Family provides effective treatments for wrinkles, rhytids and the temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. The treatments are comfortable with a minimal risk of side effects and require no downtime or expensive disposables.
The key to the Accent Family of systems is the safe production of heat in the dermis and sub-dermis. Therapeutic heat is produced in two ways:
- Tissue resistance to BiPolar RF current creates local, superficial dermal heating
- UniPolar™ RF generates alternating electromagnetic fields that cause rotation and friction in the dipole water molecules of deeper tissue
These two safe and effective heat generation techniques give you all the tools you need to provide your patients with safe and effective treatments.
Micro Plasma Technology.
PixelRF for fractionated skin resurfacing uses Micro Plasma Technology which both ablates and heats the skin through controlled, focused delivery of energy without using disposables. Healthy skin around the treated area is left. This helps to accelerate the healing process by allowing the need for just the targeted tissue to heal and collagen to strengthen. The result is fresh, smooth, radiant skin and reduced downtime for the patient.
IN-Motion™ technology and patient comfort
The IN-Motion™ technology of the Accent Family represents a breakthrough in patient comfort, speed of procedures and repeatable clinical results. It provides a gradual thermal rise to the target’s therapeutic temperature, with minimal risk of injury and with much less discomfort for the patient. The IN-Motion™ technology is administered using a sweeping technique, which enables a larger treatment area.
How the technologies work together
The UniPolar and BiPolar technologies work together to provide optimized results for your patients. By combining the UniLarge and Bipolar modules the Accent Family provides both superficial and volumetric heating. The body responds to this combined thermal delivery by causing the collagen fibers to contract and multiply. The result is a noticeable softening of wrinkles in the treatment area.
Before and after pictures
Accent Family of products works on all parts of the body, regardless of a patient’s age or skin type. In fact, more than 100,000 patients around the world have already chosen the Accent Your Body™ experience for superior outcomes. View some of the best before and after photos below.
What fellow practitioners are saying…
Another dimension in the the fight against aging.
“PixelRF technology has given us another dimension in the fight against aging. Since fractionated resurfacing with RF technology does not harm the skin’s outer layer, the healing time is faster than traditional CO2 lasers. As we noticed during our study The Micro Plasma Technology? creates multiple, controlled microperforations within small zones of thermal injury, similar to the pattern created by many fractionated skin resurfacing lasers. During the procedure, just a small portion of the tissue is ablated. The remaining tissue supplies the healing that leads to the elimination of irregular epidermal pigmentation, tightening of dermal collagen and the smoothing that results from the stimulation of the skin’s deeper layers. The fact that patients are experiencing less discomfort and a shorter down-time has made this technology a hit in my practice. “
