SINECCH™ - the Only Arnica Montana Clinically Proven to Reduce Bruising and Swelling After Surgery!

SINECCH™ (pronounced sinn' ekk) is an all-natural medicine prepared by Alpine Pharmaceuticals in accordance with the FDA's regulations for Homeopathic preparations. Made from the herb Arnica Montana, SINECCH™ is the only Arnica Montana dosage regimen that is clinically proven to significantly reduce bruising and swelling after surgery.

SINECCH™ has been safely used for hundreds of thousands of plastic surgeries over the past 17 years and has become an increasingly common treatment in many types of surgeries. Physicians and patients alike find that using SINECCH™ helps speed the post-operative recovery process by reducing uncomfortable swelling and bruising and often post-operative discomfort, as well.

What Is Arnica Montana?

Arnica Montana is an herb that grows wild in the Swiss Alps. Also known simply as "Arnica," it's been used in Europe for hundreds of years for the reduction of bruising and swelling and to shorten the recovery period after a physical trauma such as an accident, surgery or injury. SINECCH™ is a Homeopathic remedy made from Arnica Montana at Alpine Pharmaceuticals' FDA-regulated Homeopathic pharmaceutical production facility in Marin County, California. 


A 2003 report published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)'s Device and Technology Assessment (DATA) Committee, the "expert panel" for the nation’s plastic surgeons, stated that Homeopathic Arnica Montana, the active ingredient in SINECCH™, is safe for use in plastic surgery. The report states:

"Arnica Montana, marketed as SINECCH™ by Alpine Pharmaceuticals ( San Rafael, Calif.), is used by many plastic surgeons to limit postoperative edema (swelling) and ecchymosis (bruising). In their advertising literature, the company provides a large number of testimonials from plastic surgeons who use the product and feel that it is effective."

Two randomized, prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials comparing SINECCH™ use and a placebo found significantly less bruising and swelling among the SINECCH™ users. In the facelift comparison, the patients who did not use SINECCH™ had:

  • 25% more bruising
  • 50% longer recovery
  • 41% more bruising 7 days after surgery
  • An average of 9 square inches more bruising on their faces

All the patients love it! Some patients have no bruising or swelling after their procedures which I find to be incredible.
