What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring or sculpting are terms for cosmetic treatments used to help achieve a firmer or more toned body hidden under fat or loose skin. Body contouring is achieved by either surgical procedures like liposuction or non-surgical treatments, including Accent Prime. Some patients opt for both for optimal results. If you’re curious which services will provide you with the best results, give us a call today. When you schedule your free consultation, we can assess the areas you wish to treat and customize an optimal treatment plan based on your optimal results.
What is Accent Prime?
Accent Prime is a revolutionary body contouring and skin renewal system. It’s one of the first technologies of its kind, and it’s safe for all skin types. In addition, we can tailor it to treat each patient’s problem areas. Its benefits include face and body contouring, fat reduction, skin tightening, cellulite reduction, and skin rejuvenation.
Accent Prime uses radiofrequency energy for gradual and targeted heating deep in the dermis layer. Because each patient has slightly different needs, Accent Prime is highly customizable, meaning that the energy levels are customizable to focus on specific issues and treatments. However, Accent Prime isn’t just a skin treatment. The second component of the system is the ultrasound technology that penetrates deep into the tissues to disrupt and destroy fat cells, reducing fat deposits. The treatment tightens skin and permanently eliminates fat deposits, making it a one-two punch.
Accent Prime can address both the face and body thanks to the combination of two technologies. First, Accent Prime uses radiofrequency (RF), which uses waves with the highest and safest power and ultrasonic impulses.
The treatment enables body contouring by using ultrasonic technology to melt fat while utilizing radiofrequency thermal tightening of the skin. The result of this combination makes it possible to sculpt the body in areas that have previously been hard to treat, for example, around the abdomen, knees, and arms. This dual technology creates an unbeatable combination and results that are safe and effective with zero downtime. However, maintenance is necessary after the initial treatment series is complete to maintain skin elasticity.
How does Accent Prime work?
Accent Prime is the most advanced body contouring and skin tightening system in the world. It is set apart by the dual capabilities of radiofrequency and ultrasound heating. In addition, the design features Alma’s patented unipolar technology.
This technology offers three levels of penetrating depth (the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis). In addition, unipolar technology allows for customized treatments tailored to a patient’s specific skin and body contouring goals. Thus, this technology will enable practitioners an even greater spectrum of treatment options to customize treatments for optimal results for their patients.
Accent Prime offers two unique technologies that work together for superior results.
Accent Prime features a patented combination of longitudinal and transverse ultrasound wave technology. These ultrasound waves are called Shear waves, emitted by the treatment head resulting in acoustic pressure. This pressure breaks down the fat cell membranes destroying the cell. The cells are then naturally removed from the body through the lymphatic system in the weeks following treatment.
The intensive RF energy induces heating of various layers of the skin, contracting collagen fibers and stimulating the formation of new collagen to improve your skin’s thickness and alignment. Radiofrequency heating modes are ideal for treating sagging skin, especially in problem areas like the face, skin, arms, and thighs.
Am I a good candidate for Accent Prime?
Accent Prime treatments are an excellent non-surgical option for adults in good health who wish to lift, tighten or firm-specific areas of their bodies. It’s also beneficial for adults who want to reduce wrinkles, stretch marks, or cellulite. Accent Prime is also helpful for lymphatic drainage massage alternatives. Accent Prime is an optimal treatment for loose and sagging skin, regardless of whether the sagging is due to aging or fatty deposits.
The best candidates for Accent Prime are non-smokers who are not currently pregnant and have a BMI under 30. Some patients who have a higher BMI or want to see more dramatic results will need to consider more invasive procedures to accomplish the same results. Because of the non-invasive nature of this procedure, it’s easy to combine with other procedures such as BeautiFill for more dramatic results.
Before and After Photos
What are the target areas for Accent Prime?
Accent Prime reduces fine lines and wrinkles and tightens lax skin while eliminating fat. Until now, many patients were only able to receive these results from a facelift. Accent Prime restores skin elasticity for a smoother, more youthful look.
Submental contouring- (also referred to as “turkey neck”) Accent Prime is commonly used to treat sagging skin under the chin. The excess fat below the jaw or chin can be reduced and sculpted to treat the appearance of a double chin or turkey neck. With its skin tightening effects, you’ll notice a more taut jawline and a more youthful profile.
Unfortunately, it’s common to lose muscle tone and develop loose skin on the arms as we age. This tissue can be significantly thinner in these areas, and tightening the skin creates a leaner, more youthful profile. The skin under the arms is notoriously difficult to maintain; even with healthy habits, it is especially vulnerable to the effects of aging. Accent Prime can tone, lift, and treat that sagging skin while destroying excess fat and rebuilding skin-firming collagen fibers.
The abdomen tend to be a problem on even the fittest patients. Even with a healthy diet and exercise, excess fat can quickly accumulate here. Accent Prime can reduce circumferential weight significantly while contorting the body. Patients also like that it can reduce stretch marks and tighten the skin. This area usually requires a series of treatments, but the results are worth it.
Cellulite on this body area is common and a source of frustration to many. Accent Prime can be used to treat this area and has been found effective even on patients who have attempted regular exercise and maintained a healthy weight. Accent Prime uses ultrasound energy to work under the skin to stimulate collagen fibers, thereby restoring a smooth, taut appearance and removing cellulite’s bumpy or wavy appearance.
