What is Synergie technology?

The Synergie systems created by Dynatronics give skin care providers a way to sculpt the body and restore the appearance of youthful skin using vacuum massage. Three different instruments allow the skin care provider to work on any part of the body which needs toning or firming. These machines create the relaxing suction which is used to smooth away cellulite, improve skin elasticity, increase skin exfoliation, and take away inches without additional dieting or exercise.

How does the Synergie technology work?

By using Synergie instruments to massage underlying tissue, the skin care provider can energize the lymphatic system to release toxins from the body. By stressing and stretching the fat just below the skin surface with a strong vacuum, Synergie treatments break the bands of cellulite which cause the lumpy appearance on the skin surface. The pressure of the vacuum also activates the skin to produce more collagen which provides a stronger structure for the epidermis. This results in fewer wrinkles and less drooping of the skin.

Can Synergie be used on all areas of the body?

The Synergie AMS system is used for cellulite deposits on various parts of the body. The Synergie MDA and LT machines are predominantly used for facial rejuvenation.

How is Synergie better than other similar treatments?

Synergie is performed in thirty minute sessions twice a week until the optimum results are achieved. Then, maintenance sessions once a month will keep the skin from returning to its previous state. Patients actually enjoy the Synergie treatments and often compare them to a good massage. Synergie treatments condition the skin without burning, blistering, or cutting. All Synergie treatments, performed by trained providers, and never require anesthetics or numbing agents. The manipulated skin is not damaged in any way so in most cases, patients immediately return to their active lives.

Who make a good candidate for Synergie treatment?

Males and females wishing to achieve a more youthful, athletic appearance may find Synergie an appropriate avenue to success. All skin types have seen excellent results with a Synergie program of treatment. Those with chronic blood diseases or people on medicines which thin the blood should discuss Synergie treatment with their doctor. Pregnant women should not schedule Synergie treatments.

What are the Synergie procedures like?

The clinician uses a hand-held vacuum device in a continuous motion over the skin. The patient will feel a pulling sensation as the vacuum lifts the upper skin away from the underlying fat. In most cases, Synergie causes no pain and can aid in fluid elimination.

Does Synergie require a long recovery period?

No recovery period is needed after Synergie treatment, but the skin may be red for several hours afterwards because of the suction that has been applied. Doctors highly recommend an increase in fluids for the next day or two to help wash away the toxins which have been released from body tissue through the Synergie treatment. A good moisturizer may also be applied to the treated skin.

What will the skin look like after Synergie treatment?

For most patients, the skin after a Synergie treatment will appear firmer, and fewer lines and wrinkles will be less apparent. Cellulite deposits will begin to break up so that the skin is left taut and smooth. Patients who take measurements before and after several weeks of Synergie treatments may find that they have lost several inches from the treated areas.

Are many risks associated with Synergie treatments?

Providers of Synergie have documented no serious side effects of this treatment. Bruising is possible because of the suction, but it is rarely reported and is not dangerous to the patient.

Has Synergie been labeled a safe procedure in the U.S.?

Synergie has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment. It has been performed thousands of times in the United States by skin care providers.
