CELLULITE TREATMENT AND BODY CONTOURING WITH ALMA ACCENT TECHNOLOGY
Alma Accent Prime is the most advanced FDA approved medical device in the world that is used for fat reduction, skin tightening, cellulite treatment, and stretch mark removal. This platform enables safe and harmless treatment which reshapes targeted areas of a patient’s body. The results are long-lasting because they reduce the number of fat cells in the treated region.
Alma laser is among the top five medical laser manufacturers in the world. The unique platform combines SELECTIVE ULTRASOUND AND UNIPOLAR RADIOFREQUENCY.
Selective US is a combination of hot and cold ultrasound. Cold ultrasound waves selectively target fat cells, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. Waves vibration affects cell membranes, which leads to gradual breakdown and release of stored fat. Damaged fat cells are then removed from the body by the lymphatic systems. Accent Prime also uses hot US technology that creates compressive US and generates cavitation. Doctors decide whether to use hot or cold US waves, or to combine them to achieve the desired results.
Radiofrequency (RF) enables skin tightening. Unique unipolar technology used by Accent Prime is based on the transfer of energy directly to the tissue, causing rotation of water molecules. This leads to friction that creates focused and effective heat. Unipolar technology allows for the tissue to be heated at various depths. The doctor controls the depth at which the tissue should be heated based on the type of treatment and the treated area. Accent Prime produces radiofrequency with the highest energy on the market, which reduces the time required to achieve the desired temperature.
How does Alma Accent Prime shape the body?
Accent Prime shapes the body through the combination of the US energy that causes fat removal (lipolysis) and the RF energy that facilitates fat metabolism and skin tightening. Once the fat gets removed, the applied RF energy causes skin tightening, improves its complexion, and boosts the production of new collagen.
How does Alma Accent Prime affect skin tightening?
Skin tightening is achieved with the help of radiofrequency – the RF energy is used to heat the skin to a certain temperature while leaving it intact. The treatment facilitates the production of collagen and elastin and causes stimulation of fibroblast in the deep layers of the skin. The advantage of this method is that it increases the resistance of the skin, improves its appearance, complexity, and quality.
How does Alma Accent Prime work on cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by fat cells increase, circulatory disorders, and fluid retention. It is often genetically predisposed and around 90% of European women suffer from this aesthetic problem. Alma Accent Prime uses the combination of the RF energy and mechanical massage to accelerate adipose tissue metabolism, reduce fat cell volume, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and improve skin complexion.
What are the advantages of the Alma Accent Prime platform?
The US and RF energy allow for targeted volume reduction and cellulite treatment of a certain region of the body without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The gradual heating of the targeted tissue and the integrated cooling system prevent pain, which makes the treatment extremely pleasant.
Alma Accent Prime treatment is effective for all skin types, as well as for thin and sensitive facial skin (including eyelids), neck, and décolletage.
Accent Prime platform can be used not only to treat obesity and cellulite, but also to tighten the skin and muscle even if a person is not overweight.
Patients can resume their everyday activities immediately after the procedure.
How many treatments do patients need in order to see results?
The number of treatments is individual and depends on the region in question, as well as the cellulite type. Only one large region (the back or the front of the legs), together with a smaller region (the upper arm, stomach, double chin), can be done during a single treatment. The recommended number of sessions is 3-6 spaced 10-14 days apart. If a patient has a minor problem with obesity and cellulite, the results and improvements can be seen after the first treatment. Every patient is photographed before and after the treatment (the treated area), so the results are clearly visible.
What are the contraindications?
Metal implants in the treated region, patients with a built-in pacemaker, certain systemic and autoimmune diseases, pregnancy. Prior to the procedure, the doctor checks the patient’s medical history and performs a clinical examination to ensure the safety of the patient.
