Accent Prime

When it comes to skin tightening and body contouring, there is a wide range of treatments available in the aesthetic and surgical markets. Clients are spoiled for choice when it comes to concentrated energy treatment. One such treatment that uses new and advanced technologies is called Accent Prime. Continue reading to learn more about this procedure and find out what Accent Prime treatment involves.

What is the Accent Prime treatment?

Accent Prime is a versatile, state of the art system that uses combined technologies (ultrasound and radiofrequency). It delivers highly customized aesthetic treatments such as skin tightening and body contouring. The biggest advantage of Accent Prime is that it uses as many as nine different clinically proven technologies that are usually found on separate platforms. This means the treatment time is short and can be as little as 20 minutes. What's more, Accent Prime results are natural and long-lasting. Some of the treatments that can be performed on this system include:

  • Face contouring (to tighten loose skin and get rid of a false double chin, for example)
  • Skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction (to get rid of fine lines and improve skin texture)
  • Body contouring (to get rid of excess belly fat and selectively target fat cells in other parts of the body)
  • Cellulite reduction and treatment of stretch marks (in areas with fatty tissue)
  • Blepharoplasty (non-surgical eyelid lifting)

So, whether you have lax skin or sagging skin on your face, an uneven skin tone, buttocks cellulite, stretch marks, a flabby belly, or stubborn fat cells in other parts of the body, Accent Prime could be the solution. This system can help you get smoother skin, smooth cellulite, and eliminate excess fat quickly. The treatments can enhance your natural beauty contours, giving you a slim and lifted effect, without damaging surrounding tissue.

The Prime Accent system from Alma Lasers comes with 11 handpieces that enable practitioners to combine treatments with maximum flexibility. Some of the applicators in Accent Prime include:

  • The UltraSpeed is a large-sized applicator that uses a new type of ultrasound technology, allowing doctors to perform high-speed body contouring. This allows large areas, such as the stomach and abdominal area, to be treated in a short amount of time.
  • The UniBody treatment on Accent Prime utilizes radio frequency RF technology. A mechanical applicator is used to produce thermal deep heating and break down fat cell membranes. The treatment increases the metabolic rate of deep tissues, leading to skin tightening cellulite reduction.
  • The Accentuate applicator delivers radio frequency energy to the treatment area. This system allows adjustable temperature settings and can be used for skin tightening and body contouring of large areas.
  • The MiniSpeed applicator uses ultrasound energy to reduce fat cell volume in small areas. The energy is distributed equally in the treatment area to achieve fat reduction in stubborn areas.
  • The SpeedSculpt Accent Prime applicator is a smaller version of the MiniSpeed and is also used to address subcutaneous fat. It can significantly reduce fat in in very small areas.
  • The UniFace Accent Prime treatment delivers radio frequency RF energy and is designed to treat small areas such as the face (for example, submental, reduce fine lines). It is also used to correct skin laxity, improve skin firmness, and stimulate collagen fibers.
  • The UltraFace Alma Accent applicator produces ultrasound waves that work by affecting deep tissues. It is used for face contouring.
  • The CoaxiPolar applicator is used for skin rejuvenation. It works by heating the superficial skin layers and is useful for visibly smoothing delicate areas without damaging surrounding body structures.
  • The UniLarge applicator can help speed up metabolism of fat cells to get rid of excess fat. The treatment also works by stimulating lymphatic drainage. It is used for skin resurfacing along with fat reduction simultaneously.
  • The Tune Large uses RF technology to achieve tighter skin. A variation of this applicator, the Tune Periorbital, is used to pull back lax skin around the eyes. The Tune Face is used to tighten loose skin on the face.
  • The MicroPlasma + Impact Alma Lasers applicator uses RF and ultrasound solutions (combined technologies) to allow deep penetration of topical skin rejuvenation agents.
  • The Colibri Accent Prime system is used to perform a non-surgical eyelid lift and reduce fine lines in hard-to-reach areas such as near the eyes.

What to expect during Accent Prime?

Preparation

It is a good idea to hydrate well in the days leading up to your Accent Prime procedure. This helps the RF systems to generate heat and the lymphatic system to get rid of the fat cells more effectively.

Treatment

The treatment duration is usually 30-60 minutes depending on where you are having the Accent Prime done (face, body, or both). Your doctor will apply topical numbing cream to the treatment area and give you protective eyeglasses to wear. The appropriate applicator will then be used. The treatments are painless and most clients describe it like a sensation of a warm massage. Once the hand-held device is removed, the doctor will use cool air to soothe your skin.

Aftercare and Recovery

There is no downtime and you can return to normal activities on the same day as your Accent Prime procedure.

Results

You will see smoother skin and improved skin texture in the days following Accent Prime. The loose skin will continue to improve over the next 6 months as collagen fibers continue to grow. The results may be noticeable after just one treatment. However, you may need up to 6 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart to get the desired results. You will also likely need to come back for yearly maintenance treatments.

Is Accent Prime body contouring skin tightening safe?

The Accent Prime system is FDA approved and delivers a range of safe and effective procedures. It is safe for use on all skin types. The treatments can be safely performed in delicate areas like the face, neck, and décolletage. Accent Prime is quick, easy, and painless for clients.

What are the side effects?

You may have some minor redness and swelling in the treated area for a couple of days after Accent Prime. Rarely, blistering, burning, and skin discoloration can occur. However, when performed by a licensed and experienced provider, Accent Prime is safe and complications are rare.

How much does Accent Prime cost?

The average cost of an Accent Prime treatment is around $1,500, but depending on the area being treated, the cost can be as much as $5,000.
