Bodysculpting Q & A

What is meant by the term “bodysculpting?”

Bodysculpting refers to a range of treatments that use hot or cold temperatures to permanently destroy a portion of targeted fat cells. This approach allows you to select an area of your body where fatty deposits linger and create a more refined shape by removing fat.

When you diet and exercise, your body taps into your fat cells for stored energy. However, there is no way to control which fat cells are tapped into first. That’s why you can reach and maintain a healthy weight yet still struggle with “problem areas” where fat remains.  

How does the Alma™ Accent Prime create bodysculpting effects?

Advantage Primary Care is proud to offer the very best bodysculpting system on the market, Alma Accent Prime. This platform combines ultrasound with radiofrequency energy to create impressive fat reduction results. 

During treatment, your practitioner guides the treatment handpiece over the surface of your skin. You may feel a warming sensation, but the device has built-in safety features to ensure the surface of your skin remains at a comfortable temperature while the deeper layers receive more heat. 

That heat damages some of your fat cells, causing them to rupture and release their stored fat. Your body then processes the cell debris and fat through your lymphatic system. Once gone, those fat cells will not regenerate, and the treated area will appear more toned and streamlined. 

Alma Accent Prime treatments do not require any advanced preparation or downtime. It’s a good idea to stay well hydrated after your sessions to help your lymphatic system function properly. 

Which areas of the body respond well to bodysculpting treatments?

Alma Accent Prime is a good fit for many common problem areas. Some of the areas that respond well to bodysculpting treatments include:

  • Beneath the chin
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Upper thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Bra line


You can even have more than one area treated during the same visit. Most people benefit from a series of treatments spaced out over time, but you’ll begin to see results after just one session.
