Vanquish™ is well tolerated and produces noticeable body contouring results. FDA approved, safe and effective, Vanquish™ has shown clinical proof to reduce stubborn fat.
Restores Your Curves Safe and Non-Invasive Reduces Fat
How Does Vanquish™ Work?
Vanquish™ can be used to treat stubborn fat on the abdomen, waist, flanks, lower back and flanks and inner/outer thighs. The treatment uses selective heating therapy to permanently damage surplus fat cells. It is recommended that patients drink plenty of water and remain hydrated throughout the treatment time period and keep to regular exercise routines.
During a treatment session, radiofrequency energy is admitted to the localized area(s) to heat up the fat cells. At a certain temperature, some of the fat cells perish. The body then filters the damaged fat cells through the natural lymphatic system and flushed out of the system.
Advantages of Vanquish™
There are many reasons why patients love treatment with Vanquish™. Some of the most popular include the following:
- Noticeable reduction in fat and circumference
- Non-invasive, no-contact treatment
- No anesthesia, injections or incisions
- Does not effect or compromise surrounding tissue
- Very safe; FDA-approved
- 45 minute treatments (4 treatments required)
- No Downtime
What to Expect During Treatment and Recovery
Vanquish™ is an in-office, non-invasive treatment that takes about 45 minutes. The treatment applicator hovers above the targeted area and emits radiofrequency energy. The energy penetrates well hydrated skin to reach the unwanted fat. The heat from the radiofrequency energy warms the fat cells in that time period to over 100 degrees, at which temperature they are permanently destroyed. Over time, the body naturally filters the damaged fat cells through its lymphatic processes and flushes out the system.
The treatment is relaxing. Some have described the treatment as comparable to sitting under a warm blanket for 45 minutes. Thanks to the special design of the technology and equipment, the applicator does not come in contact with the body at all. It is calibrated to target the unwanted fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue, overlying skin, hair follicles or sweat glands.
There is no downtime associated with the Vanquish™ treatment. Patients can immediately resume their daily activities. The skin may be warm and slightly pink, but these side effects are minimal and subside quickly.
Patients require a minimum of 4 treatments spaced a week apart to achieve the desired results. Results may vary from patient-to-patient as each patient will respond differently. The majority of patients experience measurable reductions in the circumference area treated. A visible result is usually seen within 4-6 weeks post treatment series. Patients are often heard saying “my pants fit better”, ‘my pants are looser in my thighs”, and “there is better contour”. One of the best benefits of Vanquish™ treatment is that it inspires many to continue making healthy lifestyle habits. Patients are excited to maintain their body contouring results with diet and exercise.
