Cellulite FAQs

Question:
Who can have Synergie cellulite treatments?

Answer:  Anyone who would like to see a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite and circumferential body measurements of cellulite-treated areas may be a candidate for these treatments.  Although women are the Synergie clients most often treated, men have also found Synergie to be helpful in treating problem areas. 

There are a few contraindications for these treatments, including deep vein thrombosis, thrombophlebitis (phlebitis), recently diagnosed cancer, pregnancy, hemophilia, and uncontrolled high blood pressure. 
 
Question: How do Synergie cellulite treatments feel?

Answer: Synergie treatments are relaxing and invigorating.  You are literally receiving a massage.  Some clients may even fall asleep because it is so relaxing.  The sensation is similar to a deep, invigorating massage.  Treatment levels are adjusted for a client's comfort.

Question: How often do I have to have Synergie treatments?

Answer: The typical regimen is twice weekly for 30 minutes.  The total number of treatments required depends on the individual's goals and needs.  Treatments can be increased to three a week if desired but we recommend at least 48 hours between treatments.

Question: When can I begin to see results?

Answer: Noticeable outward changes can usually be seen within 4-5 treatments.  However, results vary.  A study of 36 women treated twice a week over an eight week period showed loss of inches in 100% of the participants and visible reduction in the appearance of cellulite in 91% of participants.

Question: How long will the results last?

Answer: In order to maintain results, monthly maintenance sessions are recommended after completing the initial aggressive phase.  Treatment regimens can be customized to meet the goals of each client.  Longevity of benefits will vary depending on the individual's lifestyle.

Question: Is there a limit to how many treatments I can have?

Answer: No!  The Synergie treatments are a safe, reliable, non-surgical approach.  A client could have treatments as often as every other day.  Although you may begin to see results in as little as 6 treatments, you may continue to have treatments until individual goals and objectives are met.

Question: Does this replace diet and exercise?

Answer: No. In fact, if diet and exercise are used in conjunction with Synergie treatments, greater results will likely be experienced.  A Synergie study showed optimal results are achieved by following the recommended program which includes Synergie treatments, regular exercise and proper nutrition.

Question: What results can I expect if I choose to only receive the Synergie treatments?

Answer: The Synergie study indicated a client would see tremendous results from receiving Synergie treatments only.  The treatments alone will help the client temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and circumferential body measurements of cellulite-treated areas.  However, optimal results will occur when a client combines Synergie treatments with proper nutrition and regular exercise.

Question: What happens if I begin treatments and for some reason have to stop for a few weeks? Do I have to start over again?

Answer: Each treatment is effective yet subtle.  Noticeable outward changes can usually be seen within 4-5 treatments, however results do vary with each client.  Someone who sporadically receives treatments will see results.  But a client who wishes to see optimal results should routinely participate in the program without interupting the treatment regimen which is twice weekly for two months or until individual results are achieved.

Question: Is Synergie comparable to liposuction?

Answer: No, there is no comparison.  The Synergie Lifestyle System is non-invasive and painless.  Synergie is a non-surgical alternative for the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite and circumferential body measurements of cellulite-treated areas.

Microdermabrasion FAQs

Question: What is Microdermabrasion?
 
Answer: Microdermabrasion ia an aesthetic procedure in which the skin is exfoliated mechanically. Focused columns of fine, sterile, inert aluminum oxide crystals collide with the outer layer of the skin removing cells of the skin's outermost layer.
