How Does Accent Prime™ Work?
Accent Prime™ works by targeting layers of fat underneath the skin. Ultrasound energy creates pressure waves that break apart fat cells. The body’s lymphatic system will filter away the remnants. At the same time, radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the dermis to tighten collagen fibers, and trigger increased collagen production. As a result, the treated area looks sculpted and smooth without loose skin.
How Long Does it Take for Accent Prime™ Body Contouring to Work?
Since Accent Prime™ is a non-invasive treatment, fat removal is processed through your body’s natural filtration system to remove the damaged fat cells. While some tightening may be immediately noticeable, the most noticeable results will develop throughout the weeks following treatment as the body removes fat cells and skin cells produce more collagen. This collagen will support and tighten the skin, leading to long-lasting results. The removed fat cells will never come back, but your results could change if you have a significant weight change.
The skin-tightening effects will become visible within days after treatment as collagen fibers in the skin contract. You will notice your skin become firmer and smoother over the following weeks as cells in your skin produce new collagen. Most patients require a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart for optimal cosmetic results.
What Can Accent Prime™ Treat?
Accent Prime™ works on many challenging areas, including:
- Under the chin
Unlike most other body contouring treatments, Accent Prime™ can also treat cellulite. Its dual energy sources break up uneven fat and tighten the skin to reduce dimpling and bulging. Accent Prime™ also works to tighten and rejuvenate facial skin for a more youthful appearance.
