Are Body Contouring Results Relatively Easy to Maintain?

By: Dr. Ana M. Sierra de Aragon


With a short series of just 4 – 6 Accent Prime™ nonsurgical body contouring treatments, patients can achieve a dramatically slimmer, firmer, more youthful-looking figure by reducing stubborn fat and tightening loose skin. Accent Prime body contouring provides a fantastic alternative to cosmetic surgery, as this nonsurgical treatment does not require incisions, anesthesia, scarring, or downtime. For men and women searching for a solution for resistant fat and skin laxity, this may seem too good to be true.

A common question asked by patients considering nonsurgical body contouring is how long their results will last compared with cosmetic surgery, and the answer may surprise you. Keep scrolling for more information about the longevity of Accent Prime body contouring results provided by double board-certified physician and aesthetic expert Dr. Ana M. Sierra de Aragon, medical director of Universal Healing and Wellness in Scottsdale and Gilbert, AZ.

How does nonsurgical body contouring work?

At Universal Healing and Wellness, our experienced team utilizes the cutting-edge Accent Prime system to perform nonsurgical body contouring and skin tightening. Accent Prime’s dual-energy technology consists of both ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) energies to target diet- and exercise-resistant fat while simultaneously stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to address skin laxity. During treatment with Accent Prime, which takes about 20 – 60 minutes, depending on the size and number of locations being treated, patients will be able to lie back and relax.

The Accent Prime applicators will then be used to administer the RF and ultrasound energies to the desired treatment areas. Patients may feel a slight warm sensation, though most patients report no discomfort during treatment. Once the treatment has concluded, patients will be able to resume their usual activities almost immediately. Over the next several weeks, the physique will begin to appear slimmer and more contoured as the damaged fat cells are expelled through natural processes, and the body’s supplies of collagen and elastin build up.

Where can Accent Prime be used?

Some of the most common treatment areas for Accent Prime nonsurgical body contouring and skin tightening include:

  • Face
  • Chin/neck
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

In addition to reducing fat and firming lax skin, Accent Prime can also improve the appearance of stretch marks.

How can I maintain my Accent Prime results?

Fat cells destroyed during an Accent Prime treatment are gone from the body and will not return. Patients should keep in mind, however, that gaining weight after nonsurgical body contouring can reverse their cosmetic results, as new fat cells can form, and the remaining fat cells can swell, adding back inches to their figure. Fortunately, maintaining your Accent Prime body contouring results is fairly simple with these tips:

  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Limit alcohol consumption
  • Do not smoke
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Maintain a stable weight
  • Defer treatment until you are done having children and breastfeeding

With these healthy habits and a commitment to consistency, your newly toned and trimmed physique can last for years after nonsurgical body contouring.
