Think of that playdough that you played with as a kid (or an adult). Wouldn’t you like to remold parts of your body?
What is it?
Face & Body contouring treatments effectively remove stubborn fat deposits, reduce the appearance of cellulite, tighten loose skin, and visibly improve the shape and contours of the face and body. Alma Accent uses combined technologies to eliminate excess fat and loose skin, visibly improving the shape and contours of the body. The synergy of ultrasound and radio frequency technologies achieves superior results to those of either technology on its own. Cold ultrasound shear waves selectively destroy fat cells while UniPolar radio frequency accelerates their metabolism for fast lymphatic drainage. The application of RF heat energy following fat destruction induces a volumetric contraction effect, tightening the skin and improving its texture while also building new collagen.
Does it Hurt?
The treatment is virtually painless and has absolutely no downtime. The treatments site can get a little warm as we heat the skin. It should not be uncomfortable though. We will talk with you throughout the treatment to assure that you don’t develop any “hot spots.”
What Can It Do?
Face & Body Contouring
A combination of ultrasound and RF technologies achieves superior results, giving you a naturally sculpted appearance without the pain and downtime of more invasive procedures. Look thinner, feel better and reveal the beauty of your natural contours.
The dimpled, lumpy skin associated with cellulite is a challenging concern that plagues many women today. Numerous remedies are available, but ultimately, most are ineffective.
Accent Prime offers a clinically proven solution that effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite.
Over time, the smooth texture and volume of youthful skin give way to signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.
Accent Prime uses high RF energy to lift and tighten mature skin of the face and body, enhancing your natural beauty and revealing smoother, younger, healthier-looking skin.
As we age, the tone and texture of our skin changes.
Accent Prime uses microplasma RF technology to smooth out and balance the skin- improving overall skin tone and texture, improving the appearance of stretch marks, and reducing superficial pigmentation, while helping to bolster the skin against future aging.
Why is it different than CoolSculpting?
While CoolSculpting does work to reduce pockets of fat, here is what the manufacturer says:
“The applicator will be placed on the treatment area and there will be a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by that signature cooling effect. During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.”
During the cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting is only one of the fat freezing technologies on the market), the technician attaches vacuum-like paddles to your body. The paddles suction your fat into them and cool it. This takes an hour or two and in two to four weeks, your body’s lymphatic system will flush out the dead fat cells.
WebMD states: You should avoid cryolipolysis if you have:
- Loose skin
- Poor skin tone
- Cryoglobulinemia (a condition where abnormal proteins in your blood thicken in cold temperatures)
- Cold urticaria (a skin condition that causes hives on your skin when it gets cold)
- Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria (a type of anemia that destroys your red blood cells when you’re in cold temperatures)
So, what are you thinking of doing with that loose skin? At Vivo, WE WON’T LEAVE YOU HANGING!
Your stubborn fat won’t always fit the size of the CoolSculpting applicators. With Accent Prime, we can customize even the smallest area, or the smallest person. Our radiofrequency tightens the skin after we heat the fat! This results in a much better outcome. What will you do with that saggy skin after the fat loss? We can take care of both issues, and we will hand-sculpt your body with precision!
Think about small areas of your body that you would like sculpted, like under your chin, or maybe your knees. Our ultrasound and radiofrequency technology can treat practically any area of your body.
Is it safe?
Treatments with Accent Prime are safe and effective for all skin types (I-VI) as well as for thin and delicate areas of the face, neck and décolleté.
Is there any downtime?
You can go back to your activities immediately.
What happens to the fat?
Accent Prime features patented Cold Ultrasound Shear technology that selectively target fat cells, while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. The transverse wave vibrations disrupt fat cell membranes, leading to gradual breakdown and release of stored fat. Damaged fat cells are then disposed of the body through the lymphatic system.
How many treatments will I need before I see results?
Well, depending on the indication that you want to treat, we recommend 4-8 sessions, but mostly results can be seen by the second session!
How long does each treatment take?
That depends on the indication, the area of treatment, and the patient’s individual profile. Treatment can take between 20 minutes to an hour.
The newest and most advanced workstation for body contouring and skin tightening:
Focused Depth Control
Patented Alma Unipolar technology allows for focused, safe and deep heating of tissue at various depths within the skin. With variable depth control, practitioners have the flexibility and precision to treat the target area for optimal results.
Shear Wave Technology
Accent Prime features a patented combination of longitudinal and transverse Ultrasound wave technology. This wave is called Shear wave which allows to selectively target fat cells, while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. The shear wave vibrations disrupt fat cell membranes, leading to gradual breakdown and release of stored fat. Damaged fat cells are then disposed of the body through the lymphatic system.
