How Long Does It Take for Accent Prime™ Body Contouring to Work?

Are you looking for a way to remove stubborn areas of fat without surgery or recovery time? Accent Prime™ body contouring can help you achieve a slimmer, more sculpted figure. This non-invasive treatment targets your most challenging pockets of fat for comfortable, effective body shaping. 

What is Accent Prime™ Body Contouring?

Accent Prime™ uses radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten skin. Accent Prime™ works almost anywhere on your body to slim and sculpt your problem areas with lasting results. Unlike other body contouring methods, Accent Prime™ removes fat, tightens skin, and treats cellulite.

*Individual results may vary.

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:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • 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.

How is Accent Prime™ Different From CoolSculpting®?

Accent Prime™ has several advantages over other body contouring systems like CoolSculpting®. Accent Prime™ is our preferred method of body contouring for several reasons:

  • Specialized applicators to treat more body areas
  • Tightens skin for a smoother appearance
  • Comfortable treatment that feels like a warm massage
  • No risk of paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), an uncommon complication of cold-based body contouring
  • Treatment in as little as 20 minutes

The flexibility of Accent Prime™ makes it ideal for treating many of your most challenging body and facial concerns. From cellulite to skin laxity, Accent Prime™ offers solutions no other body sculpting system can. 

Is There Any Downtime With Accent Prime™?

Accent Prime™ requires no downtime. You may feel some warmth and notice that your skin looks flushed for up to a few hours. You can return to work or your regular activities after treatment. Protecting the treated areas from the sun will protect your new collagen from UV damage.
