Body Rejuvenation with Accent Prime™
Accent Prime Albuquerque

Body Rejuvenation with Accent Prime™

This innovative system works for body contouring, skin tightening, and cellulite treatment to offer a full face and body skin renewal.

Accent Prime™ is a treatment system engineered as the most advanced body contouring and skin tightening system in the world. Because it harnesses the treatment properties of both Radiofrequency (RF) energy and Ultrasound energy, this unique device can be used to treat both the face and the body.

The Radiofrequency (RF) energy provides for gradual and targeted heating by penetrating three levels of depth – the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis – to stimulate collagen production for firmer, tighter skin, while the Ultrasound energy penetrates deep into the tissues to disrupt and destroy fat cells, creating pressure waves that break apart fat cells so the body’s lymphatic system can remove them. This powerful energy duo is what makes Accent Prime™ so effective in fat removal, body contouring, skin tightening and cellulite treatment, while Alma Laser’s patented unipolar technology allows for customized treatments that can be designed according to each patient’s specific body contouring and skin tightening goals.

Skin tightening and circumference reduction in the following areas:

  • Arms (“bingo wings”) and Back
  • Stomach (abdomen and love handles)
  • Legs (thighs and buttocks)
  • Cellulite
  • Fine lines/Wrinkle Treatment

The patented Shear Wave(™) and Hot Ultrasound energy in the Accent Prime™ laser uses acoustic pressure emitted by the ultrasound waves (Shear waves) to disrupt and eliminate stubborn and difficult fat cells, even from areas other devices can’t optimally target, such as around the knees and arms. The damaged fat cells are then naturally filtered away by the lymphatic system. The Radiofrequency energy then works to provide thermal tightening of the skin, for a tighter, more contoured body area.

The radiofrequency energy emitted by Accent Prime™ heats up the deeper layers of the dermis, causing them to contract, immediately tightening the skin. In the long term, this treatment will also induce the production of collagen, keeping the skin firm and tight.

Often hard to treat, cellulite challenges any body sculpting device. However, the combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency energy works to break up the enlarged fat cells that lead to an irregular surface appearance and tighten the overlying skin. At the same time, vibrations stimulate lymphatic drainage to relieve fluid buildup and clear the fat cells away more quickly.

This dual technology treatment produces an unbeatable combination for noticeable results and zero downtime. The treated skin will appear tighter as the skin contracts in response to the radiofrequency energy, while the destroyed fat cells will take several weeks to pass through the lymphatic system to produce visible results for a sleeker profile. The result is less fat and tighter skin. For most areas, patients typically need about 4 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart. This device can be coupled with other treatments such as Opus Plasma facial rejuvenation.

You can return to your regular activities immediately following treatment, making this an ideal 20-minute outpatient procedure. Because the ultrasound and radiofrequency energy travel through the outer layers of the skin without harming it, there is no damage to the skin and no downtime.
