The areas best improved with Synergie are the buttocks, thighs, legs, and hips. However, the treatment can also be applied to the face for tightening loose skin and reducing wrinkles. Following the completion of treatment, most patients report a reduction in size around the hips, tummy and arms, and noticeable weight loss.
Synergie treatments are administered with a machine called the AMS, or Aesthetic Massage System. This system is unique in that it is able to stimulate the subcutaneous level of the skin not accessible through traditional massage. Subdermal massage can change the fat content of the cells and eliminate the excess fat through the lymphatic system.
The typical treatment schedule consists of 30-minute sessions every three days or so for about 2 months, followed by maintenance visits to improve firmness and skin tone once a month. A facial treatment may take less time to perform and normally can be completed in 2-3 weeks.
The initial quantity of treatments will be determined by your physician based on your individual needs. During the procedure, you will wear a body suit specially designed for the treatment to eliminate the uncomfortable situation of being nude during a massage. You will also be provided with dietary support designed to control fat intake supervised by your doctor.
In 1998, a clinical study confirmed the efficacy of Synergie with 91% of the patients in the study noting a significant reduction in cellulite. These results have remained consistently positive since then, with thousands of satisfied patients nationwide.
There are few conditions that prohibit patients from undergoing Synergie treatment. As with any medical procedure, there are exceptions. Ask your physician to discuss your candidacy, any risks, and what the results you can expect with you before beginning treatment.
