Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a form of noninvasive aesthetic treatment that targets areas of fat that aren’t shifting despite following a healthy diet and exercising, but it’s not a substitute for healthy weight loss in people with more serious weight problems.

Dr. Alperovich’s team uses the Accent Prime platform, a state-of-the-art device that combines two safe and effective methods of breaking down fat cells without patients needing to undergo a surgical procedure.


How does body contouring work?

There are different approaches to body contouring, including using cooling technology that freezes fat cells, or laser technology to heat the cells. Accent Prime combines two techniques that are proven to reduce unsightly areas of fat.

Cold ultrasound technology called Shear Wave™ destroys fat cells in the target area, and UniPolar™ radiofrequency energy speeds up the body’s natural disposal of the dead cells. Your practitioner can isolate precisely the right fat cells for treatment, leaving other tissues completely unaffected. Once dead, fat cells can’t regrow, so the results are permanent.

Radiofrequency waves also apply heat to the skin in the treatment area, causing it to contract, resulting in tightening and an improvement in skin texture. The heat also promotes the growth of new collagen fibers in the skin and underlying tissues, adding to the rejuvenating effect.

Would body contouring treatment work on my face?

Accent Prime is sufficiently technologically advanced to enable your practitioner to apply treatment to your face and other delicate areas, unlike many other aesthetic platforms. Using the same combination of ultrasound fat reduction and radiofrequency skin rejuvenation, your practitioner can reduce signs of aging such as:

  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sagging skin
  • Drawn complexion
  • Double chin

The combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency is more effective than using either approach by itself, and you can have your skin problems and areas of fat reduced during the same treatment session.

How soon will I see the results of body contouring treatment?

Unlike open surgery or liposuction, the results won’t be immediately obvious. This is because your body has to break down the dead fat cells and dispose of them, and the growth of new collagen fibers takes time.

You should notice an improvement in the texture of your skin after treatment, followed by a gradual improvement in your overall appearance over the following months. After a couple of months, the effects should be noticeable, but it can take up to six months to see the final results.

Body contouring is safe, painless, and doesn’t require you to take time out of your life. It’s ideal for people wishing to reduce stubborn pockets of fat without the need for invasive procedures.
