What are the various Synergie treatments?
Dynatronics has created several products using Synergie technology which minimize the appearance of cellulite, tighten sagging skin, improve circulation, and balance imperfections in skin texture and tone. Skin care providers may use one of the Synergie products or several in combination, but each product uses a suctioning motion to massage the fat just below the epidermis. The vacuum technology applied by the Synergie LT2, Synergie MDA, and Synergie ADS machines restore aging skin to a more youthful state.
How does the Synergie AMA, LT2 and MDA technology work?
The movement created by the Synergie Aesthetic Massage System (AMS) increases the blood flow to the thighs, stomach, or waist and results in a loss of inches in these areas. The vacuum of this instrument also disperses the deposits of cellulite beneath the skin, leaving a smoother outer surface. Increased circulation is an added benefit to treatment with AMS. Studies conducted by Dynatronics proved that Synergie consistently results in toning, even without additional dieting or exercise. Two other models which employ the same technology for the face and neck are the Synergie LT2 and the Synergie MDA.
Can Synergie be used on all areas of the body?
Synergie is safe for most areas of the body, including the legs, hips, abdomen, and waist. The vacuum used in this technology works on fatty tissues which are most affected by cellulite. Synergie is also an excellent choice for treating signs of aging that are evident on the face and neck.
How is Synergie better than other similar treatments?
Synergie is an office treatment which can be completed in less than half an hour. Most patients experience no pain, and some find this procedure to be as enjoyable as massage. Unlike more harsh treatments for aging, Synergie does not abrade nor blister the skin. It requires no anesthetic, and no recovery time is needed.
Who makes a good candidate for Synergie treatment?
Synergie can be used to treat the sun damaged skin or cellulite problems of both men and women of all ethnicities and ages. Doctors warn that it is not an appropriate treatment for pregnant women or anyone who is under the care of a physician for bleeding problems. Those on aspirin or other drug therapies which thin the blood are not good candidates for Synergie.
What are the Synergie procedures like?
If the Synergie machine in being used with a light peel or microdermabrasion, these will be applied before the vacuuming is initiated. Then, the care provider will run the vacuum device over the treatment area, allowing the suction to lift the fatty deposits beneath the skin in a mild, rolling movement until the entire area has been covered.
Is recovery after the use of Synergie difficult?
After treatment with any of the Synergie instruments, the skin may be tinged with pink, but this dissipates by the following day, and patients can immediately return to work or play. A good moisturizer should also be applied, especially if other chemical treatments have been used.
What will the skin look like after Synergie treatment?
Any bags under the eyes or along the jaw line should be significantly reduced due to the increased circulation brought about by the Synergie process. Some of the discoloration in skin tone will fade after the procedure, and face will gain definition and appear more vibrant. Cellulite should be less noticeable, and patients will sometimes lose several inches.
Are many risks associated with Synergie treatments?
Synergie is one of the safest treatments provided by dermatologists because it requires no medication for pain and involves no cutting. Although light bruising may occur, it is rare, and Synergie has not been known to cause allergic reactions of any kind.
Is Synergie approved for treatment in the U.S.?
The FDA has given approval for the use of Synergie as a cosmetic procedure, and it has been performed safely throughout the United States.
Are any of the Synergie procedures covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies list the procedures available through Synergie technology as having only aesthetic value and will not cover them.
