One of the top concerns among women is the constant battle against that cottage cheese skin, commonly known as cellulite. How does it happen? Where does it come from? How can we stop it?
Let’s start at the beginning: cellulite is normal fat, which we all carry. This particular fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, which in turn causes the skin to pucker. Also, it’s important to understand that having cellulite does not mean you are fat or overweight (even thin people have it!). That said, if you are carrying a few extra pounds, losing weight may help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite is more common in women than men, and genetics do play a role in your susceptibility of carrying cellulite. Other factors that increase the likelihood include: poor diet, slower metabolism, lack of physical activity, hormonal changes, dehydration and the thickness and color of your skin. Have you ever noticed how if you have a bit of a tan, your cellulite looks better? That’s because cellulite tends to be less noticeable in darker skin (hello self tanner!).
Liposuction is usually thought to help the appearance of cellulite, however liposuction is designed to remove deep fat deposits from the body, not cellulite, which is just beneath the surface of the skin.
Synergie Elite is a cellulite reduction treatment that we offer here at Abbracci Med Spa, and is an effective non-surgical, non-invasive alternative treatment. This procedure uses vacuum massage technology to smooth and tighten the skin, improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to flush fat cell fluids, while reducing water retention.
Synergie is not a weight loss tool, but it is recommended for those who desire smoother skin. For maximum results, 2 treatments a week for 8 weeks, combined with a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, exercise and lots of water, are suggested. This helps to flush away toxins that have been accumulating in those targeted fatty pockets.
The Synergie treatment is performed by a trained therapist, and as mentioned, combines suction, and pressure which feels like a invigorating massage. The whole body will be treated, and treatment can also be administered to targeted areas in one session, .
It’s important to note that this procedure is not designed to totally eliminate cellulite, so you may still see some bumps, even after treatment. Synergie is also not a permanent solution to removing cellulite, however, with a healthy diet and exercise, you can prolong the effects of the treatment.
Right now, Abbracci Med Spa is offering a special on Synergie Elite, and the treatment series is an especially good deal.
