Accent Prime™ Skin Tightening
What is Accent Prime?
Accent Prime is a total body contouring, skin renewal system. It’s safe for all skin types and can be individualized to treat each patient’s problem areas. Its benefits include face and body contouring, fat reduction, skin tightening, cellulite reduction, lymphatic drainage and skin rejuvenation.
Accent Prime uses radiofrequency energies that are harnessed for gradual and targeted heating deep in the dermis layer. The energy levels are customizable and can be focused on specific issues and custom treatments. The second component of the system is the ultrasound technology that penetrates deeply into the tissues to disrupt and destroy fat cells, reducing fat deposits.
Accent Prime can treat both the face and body thanks to the combination of two technologies. The Accent Prime uses Radiofrequency (or RF), which uses waves with the highest and safest power and ultrasonic impulses. This enables body contouring by using ultrasonic technology to melt fat while utilizing radio-frequency thermal tightening of the skin. The result of this combination makes it possible to sculpt the body in areas that have previously been complicated 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 completed to maintain skin elasticity.
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring or body sculpting are terms for cosmetic treatments used to reveal a firm and toned body hidden under fat or loose skin layers. Body contouring can be achieved by surgical procedures like facelifts and liposuction or nonsurgical treatments, including Accent Prime. Some patients opt for a combination of both for optimal results.
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. The system features Alma’s patented unipolar technology.
This tech offers three levels of penetrating depth (the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis). Unipolar technology allows for customized treatments that can be tailor-made according to a patient’s specific skin and body contouring goals. Accent Prime offers two unique technologies that work together for superior results.
Cold Shear Wave™ & Hot Ultrasound
Accent Prime features a patented combination of longitudinal and transverse Ultrasound wave technology. These ultrasound waves are called Shear waves, are 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.
