What is Accent Prime?
Accent Prime is a device that targets and eliminates fat cells by combining radiofrequency and ultrasound technologies into one effective treatment. It is a popular non-invasive way to contour the body, tighten sagging skin and minimize cellulite with minimal pain, shorter treatment times and no downtime. It is ideal for those who have problem areas despite maintaining a healthy body weight and lifestyle.
How does Accent Prime work?
Accent Prime combines ultrasound and radiofrequency technologies to deliver natural, long-lasting results. The synergy of both technologies achieves better results than either technology on its own. Specifically, it works by:
Accent Prime uses both hot and cold ultrasound. Hot ultrasound thermally breaks down fat deposits. Cold ultrasound disrupts fat cell membranes causing them to further breakdown and release stored fat. The released fat is then disposed of by the body through the lymphatic system (a natural process which occurs every day of our lives).
After fat cells are destroyed, radiofrequency energy accelerates the body’s ability to metabolize the released fat. Furthermore, radiofrequency waves penetrate the deep layers of the skin causing the skin to tighten and new collagen to be produced. The heat is strong and effective, improving the thickness and alignment of collagen after the treatment and for several months thereafter as collagen continues to rebuild. The heat therapy is also focused and precise, allowing for uniform results.
How does it treat cellulite?
Cellulite occurs when individual fat deposits under the skin push up against the underlying connective tissues. The result is dimpled, uneven skin. Accent Prime releases stored fat and tightens the dermis, resulting in visibly smoother skin.
What areas can be treated, and what kind of results can I expect?
Accent Prime can treat:
• the abdomen and waist
• the lower back i.e "love handles"
• back fat and bra roll
• upper arms
• inner and outer thighs
Additionally, some clients use Accent Prime after getting liposuction or tummy tucks to smooth uneven surgical results.
Who is an ideal candidate for this treatment?
The best candidates for Accent Prime body contouring are those who maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. Accent Prime is not intended as a weight loss program for overweight individuals or for all-over body fat reduction. It is designed to spot treat specific parts of the body that are stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise. You should also not undergo this treatment if you:
• Have an active skin diseases or infection in or on the area to be treated
• Are pregnant
• Have metal implants or electrical devices in your body e.g. pacemakers
Are treatments safe?
The Accent Prime system is made by Alma Lasers, a globally recognized brand since achieving US FDA approval for its body contouring systems in 2007. The technology is clinically proven and safe for all skin types.
What do treatments feel like?
Accent Prime treatments are generally comfortable. The device has a gradual heating mechanism and an integrated cooling system to prevent pain. Expect to feel some sensations when the radiofrequency and ultrasound energies are delivered to the skin. During treatments, patients typically relax and sleep.
How fast will I see results, and how many treatments will I need?
Improvements are gradual and become more visible after each treatment. Final results are apparent one to two months after your last treatment. The number of treatments you need depends on the degree of fat/cellulite reduction you desire and how your body responds to the treatments. In general, most people need between 6 to 12 treatments, spaced one week apart, for the most visible results.
How long does each session last?
Each session is about 45-60 minutes per body area treated.
What are the side effects?
Side effects are not common, but some patients may experience mild redness, swelling or bruising on or around the treated area. The skin on the treated area may become dry, but this can be remedied with body oils and moisturizers.
How should I prepare for a treatment?
Arrive well-hydrated. This helps the body to eliminate waste more efficiently giving rise to better and faster results. We recommend drinking at least 10 glasses of water the day before, the day of and the day after your treatment. This will result in a more comfortable and effective treatment. Additionally, avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment (e.g. sunbathing).
How will I feel after the treatment is completed?
After each session, you can return immediately to your daily routine. It may feel like you've had a workout or a massage, but you are encouraged to do light exercise and to resume your usual activities.
1 session: S$740
6 sessions: S$4200
