Accent Ultra

Accent Ultra is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure used for face lifting, skin tightening, fat removal, cellulite reduction, and body contouring. It is one of the many alternatives to surgical procedures that ensure effective and visible results without the need for cuts, incisions or unwanted scars and other side effects. Originally developed by Alma Lasers in Israel, it uses the latest version of External Ultrasound Lipolysis.

The body contouring treatment combines ultrasound and radiofrequency technologies into one non-invasive technique for removing stubborn fats and cellulite. The combination of hot and cold ultrasound as well as radiofrequency energy destroys fat cells without damaging nerves, vessels, and surrounding tissue.

How does it Work?

Accent Ultra’s body contouring treatment goes deep down the epidermis and dermis finally reaching the subcutaneous fat layers. It combines two advanced ultrasound technologies. “Cold mode” shear waves targets fat cells while “hot mode” compression waves produces thermal energy further enhancing the effects.  A “gold standard” is used for body reshaping.

Disperse shear waves gently deforms the fat cell membrane to induce gradual and natural elimination of fat cells while keeping surrounding non-fat cell tissue intact. The compression waves pre-heat target fat tissues to increase the effectiveness of shear waves. Accent Ultra also has a UniForm module that combines Alma Lasers’ core RF UniPolarTM technology and mechanical lymphatic drainage technology for non-surgical skin tightening and cellulite treatment.


During the procedure, ultrasound technology is used to reduce localized body fats for body contouring. After this, radiofrequency is used to generate heat inside the skin and stimulate the growth of collagen which leads to tighter skin. Motion radiofrequency is then used to massage the treatment area to improve lymphatic drainage and blood circulation.

Multiple treatments are recommended for achieving optimum results. 4 to 8 treatments are usually needed depending on the patient’s goals. Treatment typically ranges between 60 to 90 minutes depending on the size and number of target areas. Patients will need a minimum of one week interval between each treatment and maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months.

From equipment to the manner of how it destroys fat cells, Accent Ultra goes a different route in helping people with their weight loss efforts.

A Slimmer Body with Accent Ultra

Accent Ultra is a treatment that does not require invasive procedures. Accent Ultra aims to reduce the excess body fats and to deliver a more toned contouring. It uses both radio frequency energy and ultrasound to attack fat deposits and lessen the appearance of cellulite. This is done to deliver a tighter and firmer body.
How does Accent Ultra work?

Accent Ultra uses ultrasound and radio frequency together to eliminate the growth of abnormal fats. In preparation for the treatment, an anesthetic cream is applied on the skin area to minimize any discomfort or sensitivity. The major procedure is according to the application of the two sources to be performed in two stages; a series of hot ultrasound waves should be applied first to preheat the area that is undergoing the treatment, and it will be followed by cold waves to eliminate the fat cells.

The second part is when a radio frequency is used to suit the fat cells shrinkage, to clear out the treated area, to get rid of the unwanted waste materials, and to deliver the skin tightening effect. Accent Ultra is made to exclusively focus on the fat cell membranes with the aid of high-level integrated technology that adds a level of safety, without any threat to nearby skin tissues, or blood vessels and nerves.

The session of an Accent Ultra usually lasts from 45 minutes to one hour and a half. After that, the patient is safe to return to his/her normal activities.
