About Laser Body Contouring
Laser body contouring with Accent Prime is a nonsurgical treatment that uses monopolar radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound technology to eliminate fat cells. Effective and reliable for all types of skin, this technology is generally used on the tummy, quads, glutes, and back. At Renuvia Medical Center, Dr. Arthur Schlyer provides laser body contouring to help patients attain their body and wellness goals without undergoing surgery and needing recovery time. Please schedule an appointment to learn more about laser body contouring with Accent Prime at our New Port Richey, FL location.
If you are interested in laser body contouring, the ideal candidate is someone who:
- Maintains a body mass index (BMI) of 38 or lower
- Maintains a healthy lifestyle and habits
- Has tried getting rid of stubborn fat pockets
- Does not have a metal prosthesis or an internal defibrillator
- Is not pregnant or trying to get pregnant
- Has sagging skin
- Is close to their ideal weight
- Has no prior medical conditions
- Does not smoke
To help you determine whether body contouring is right for you, we will complete an initial consultation and discuss your body goals and concerns. Once we've decided what procedures or therapies work best for you, we can schedule an appointment for your first treatment or if you have time, we can complete it the same day. Because laser body contouring is a non-invasive procedure, patients will not need anesthesia. During your treatment, we'll use a device that emits targeted monopolar RF energy and ultrasonic radio waves to heat and break down fat cells. The Accent Prime handpiece heats up and is applied to the desired treatment area. Patients have compared this treatment to a hot stone massage. The procedure usually takes about 15 – 30 minutes for each region.
What to Expect
After a laser body contouring procedure, you may have some tenderness, redness, or slight discomfort, but these side effects should subside on their own. RF technology does not affect or hurt the skin because it only focuses on fat cells. Usually, in just one appointment, patients can eliminate fat cells by up to 24%. Patients will need to attend a series of appointments to attain their desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Schlyer will help you determine how many sessions you might need.
