Am I a Good Candidate for Accent Prime™?

Accent Prime™ is a treatment system engineered as the most advanced non-surgical skin tightening system in the world. Because it harnesses the treatment properties of both Radiofrequency (RF) energy and Ultrasound energy, this unique laser 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 and skin tightening, while Alma Laser’s patented unipolar technology allows for customized treatments that can be designed according to each patient’s specific facial rejuvenation goals.

  • Skin Tightening
  • “Double Chin”/Submental Fat Elimination
  • Fine Lines/Wrinkle Treatment

The Accent Prime™ laser is used to tighten lax skin, eliminate fat and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face and neck areas. The radiofrequency energy emitted by Accent Prime™ heats up the deeper layers of the dermis, causing them to contract, providing a thermal tightening of the skin, for a tighter, more taught face/neck. In the long term, this treatment will also induce the production of collagen, keeping the face/neck skin firm and tight. 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 the double chin. The damaged fat cells are then naturally filtered away by the lymphatic system.

This dual technology treatment produces an unbeatable combination for noticeable results and zero downtime. The treated skin will almost immediately 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. Many patients will see results in as little as one treatment, but generally patients will need around 4 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart for best results.

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 tissue and no downtime.

Accent Prime is an ideal treatment for any patient in good health (BMI < 30) who is searching for a non-surgical option to lift, tighten, and firm skin in any area of the face or neck. It’s effective for all skin types. Patients with significant skin laxity or large fatty deposits under the chin may not be good candidates.
