Accor – FAQ’s

If you are considering line reduction, skin tightening or even an eye-lid or neck lift, but do not want to go under the knife, then the ACCOR may be just the treatment for you. Even though the treatment is completely non-invasive, there is still a degree of downtime as the treated area heals and skin rejuvenates.

There are a number of contraindications to having the ACCOR treatment, these include:

Diabetes
Haemophilia
HIV
Hepatitis
Cancer
Herpes
Autoimmune disease
Epilepsy
Pacemaker
Keloid tendances
Heart disease
Pregnancy

There are also certain medications and the use of Botox, fillers and the insertion of threads, that can also pose an issue. All of these will be discussed at an in-depth consultation prior to having the treatment.

Before any treatment is carried out, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to numb the area, so that it is practically painless.

This depends on each individual but generally 1 treatment is usually sufficient. Of course, everyone is different and this will be discussed during your initial consultation.

Yes, it is £20.00. However, this will be deducted from your treatment price, should you wish to continue with a treatment.

Yes it is safe.  An ACCOR Plasma Pen treatment is non-invasive and is much, gentler than an operation.  However it is still a treatment so there may be minimal swelling for about 2 days. The treatment leaves tiny scabs which drop off after 4-10 days.  As each scab falls off it may leave a small red mark which usually disappear after a week, although it may take longer in slow healers.

Do not worry about scarring either.  The ACCOR plasma pen only treats the epidermis – not the dermis (that causes scarring).   When applied the heat is 42 degrees, which is hot enough to contract the skin but not hot enough to burn or scar.

We will of course provide you with an Aftercare Information Sheet but it is important not to rub or scratch the scabs off! They need to fall off on their own. You should avoid anything that may make you sweat whilst the scabs are present.

You will also need to clean the treated area with water only and use a sun cream of SPF 50 on the treated area for 3 months.

 

BEFORE your treatment we would need to be aware of the following:

  • If you are taking medication or have recently a medical treatment
  • If you are susceptible to cold sores (Herpes Simplex)
  • If you are a regular smoker
  • Epilepsy
  • Pregnancy/breast feeding
  • Pacemaker

  • Bone disease or complications
  • Nerve damage in area to be treated
  • Autoimmune disease or any disease affecting the immune system
  • Any previous aesthetic treatments you have received, e.g laser, botox, dermal fillers, peels, dermabrasion etc

You will need to bring a list of medication you are currently taking to your initial consultation.
