1. What is body contouring? Back to Top
Body contouring is a non-invasive treatment alternative to liposuction to target areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.

2. How does body contouring work? Back to Top
Body contouring is done with devices that provide controlled heat therapy to reshape bulges and sagging skin on any part of the body. It helps melt that fat and shape. The Alma proprietary UniPolar mode, delivers RF energy deep into the dermal and sub-dermal layers to efficiently treat large volumes of tissue. Unlike other RF based technologies, the Accent system does not require consumables. Therefore, treatments are clean, efficient and economical.

3. How soon can I see results? Back to Top
This heating action causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away. With time, new collagen grows to further tighten your skin, yielding even more beautiful, natural looking, firmer skin.

4. What areas of the body can be treated? Back to Top
Any part of the body that needs a reduction in small pockets of fat can be treated by the body contouring treatment.
