The Accent Ultra is a body contouring system from Alma Lasers that provides safe, non-invasive body reshaping with little downtime or pain. Utilising radiofrequency and ultrasound modalties in one machine, the Accent Ultra aims to reduce body circumference and target stubborn pockets of fat and also has the added benefit of cellulite reduction.
First, the ultrasound targets the fat cells – without damaging surrounding nerves or vessels, the ultrasound damages the fat cell membranes to induce a gradual and natural elimination of the cells post-procedure.
Then radiofrequency is combined with mechanical lymphatic drainage technology for a non-invasive cellulite treatment and skin tightening to enhance the body reshaping treatment.
The UniForm module combines Alma Lasers’ core RF UniPolar technology in parallel with a mechanical lymphatic drainage technology for non-invasive cellulite treatment and skin tightening.
Accent Ultra: Am I suitable?
Accent Ultra is suitable for patients looking for a face or body contouring treatment and aren't ready for or unwilling to have a surgical intervention.
It can be used on all parts of the body including the face, neck, abdomen, thighs and buttocks and is safe for all skin types. There are also no implications as to when the treatment can take place.
Accent Ultra: What's the treatment like?
The treatment lasts about half an hour maximum depending on the area being treated. The ultrasound waves are split between hot and cold waves with the hot waves preheating the treatment area and then the cold waves damage the fat cells. Then radiofrequency is used to help eliminate the fat cells.
Accent Ultra: What about after?
There is no downtime after Accent Ultra and you should begin seeing results immediately after your first treatment session. The ultrasound waves impair the ability of fat cells to store excess fat so the results should be long-lasting.
Accent Ultra: Are there any risks or side effects?
There are no uncomfortable side effects and no downtime after the Accent Ultra treatment so no need to set aside time for recuperation.
