How does body contouring with Accent Prime work?

Noninvasive body contouring with Accent Prime technology employs a dual approach that simultaneously reduces fat cells and firms loose skin across multiple body areas. The technology harnesses the power of ultrasound and radiofrequency, enabling targeted fat reduction while promoting skin tightening for a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.

Accent Prime's ultrasound module utilizes shear wave technology, producing a concentrated thermal effect that disrupts and breaks down fat cells. This method allows for precise targeting of stubborn fat pockets that diet and exercise may not reach.

On the other hand, the RF module engages deep thermal heating to stimulate collagen fibers in the dermis layer of the skin. Collagen, a protein responsible for skin elasticity and firmness, is essential for maintaining youthful and supple skin. As the Accent Prime technology induces collagen production, it promotes skin tightening, aiding in the reduction of sagging skin that often accompanies fat loss.

How long does it take to see results after Accent Prime body sculpting?

The timeline for seeing results from nonsurgical body contouring varies among individuals, largely dependent on the specific areas treated and individual body responses. Initial changes may be noticed as early as a few weeks post-treatment.

But, the most significant transformation typically becomes visible over a span of 3 – 6 months as the body naturally gets rid of the disrupted fat cells and stimulates collagen production. As for the number of treatments needed, it's not a one-size-fits-all answer. Depending on the treatment area's size and the patient's specific goals, several sessions may be recommended, usually spaced a few weeks apart.

What can I expect after my body sculpting treatment?

A personalized treatment plan is developed for each patient for the best possible outcomes. This plan considers factors such as the patient's unique body shape, specific goals, and the area to be targeted. This customization is one of the many reasons why nonsurgical body contouring with Accent Prime is so popular.

Post-procedure, patients can generally expect minimal downtime. Some redness, swelling, or bruising may occur in the treated areas, but these effects typically resolve within a few days.

How long do the results of Accent Prime's nonsurgical body contouring last?

One advantage of Alma's Accent Prime technology is its ability to achieve long-lasting results. That's because it not only reduces fat cells but also stimulates collagen production to help maintain the skin’s elasticity and firmness.

That said, the duration of these results can depend on several factors, including the individual's lifestyle, metabolism, and the body area being treated. While the procedure effectively removes fat cells, it does not prevent new ones from forming. Consequently, maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle is crucial in preserving your results.
