What is the Alma Accent Contouring and Skin Tightening® procedure?
An FDA approved procedure to reduce fat cells and tighten skin. It is not a laser, but uses radiofrequency energy to uniformly heat the lower dermis to cause collagen contraction and remodeling.
How long is the treatment?
It depends on how many areas are treated, but usually takes 30 to 60 minutes.
When will I see the results?
Some patients will have immediate results, but most people will see the results gradually over the next 2-6 months.
How long do the results last?
In general the results are lasting at least two years.
Is there any bruising, bleeding or downtime?
No. The procedure is non-ablative. There is no cutting. You can return to normal activities that day.
Is it safe?
Radiofrequency energy has been used in medical procedures for many years with an excellent safety profile. In FDA trials there were less than 1% of associated side effects. The most common is a slight burning of the skin, similar to a sunburn.
Am I a candidate?
Most individuals are candidates regardless of color, age or previous procedures. In fact, the only contraindications are pregnancy and implanted hardware devices (pacemakers/defibrillators)
How many treatments will I need?
The vast majority of people need only one treatment. However, your doctor will assess if additional treatments are required to achieve optimal results.
Does it hurt?
Every individual has a different threshold for pain tolerance, but your doctor will seek optimal treatment levels with acceptable pain. Patients usually feel a cooling spray followed by a brief sensation of heat in the treatment site, followed by a cooling spray again. We use a cold air chiller which help limit any discomfort.
What areas can be treated?
The four most common areas are the mid-face (below eyes to chin), the neck, forehead areas, and peri-orbital (around the eyes).Prices vary per area. Multiple areas treated receive over a $500 discount.
Prices depend on treated area (determined at consultation).
