Vanquish™ is a relatively new cosmetic fat removal procedure that is noninvasive and painless, requiring no downtime. Advantages of this unique treatment method are that it can treat larger areas in less time than many other fat reduction methods and that you can expect to see results in only a matter of weeks, rather than months.
Vanquish™ offers results that come close to providing the body contouring benefits of surgical methods. Not only does the device treat larger areas, it is more precise because the chances of human error are removed.
The Vanquish™ system is also direct in its production of noticeable results. In summary, you can have three areas treated in about 30 minutes with no pain or downtime, and you’ll achieve approximately two inches or more of permanent fat loss in only a few weeks’ time. Some patients may lose up to four inches.
How It Works
The Vanquish™ treatment uses heat to destroy fat in a safe and effective manner. Scientifically speaking, adipose tissue is heated during treatment to the degree of apoptosis, which is basically the death of cells. This kind of cell death is both highly regulated and controlled. The tissue surrounding the targeted area is not touched and remains completely unaffected.
Thermal sensors in the Vanquish™ device are able to detect the areas of excess body fat. These sensors then send the precise amount of energy to the area in order to destroy the targeted fat cells.
Areas that are most commonly treated with Vanquish™ are the abdomen, bra line, male breasts and love handles. You will feel a heating sensation and may sweat a bit, but you should not feel pain associated with this procedure.
Most people desiring to reduce or remove excess fat from a portion of the body are good candidates for the Vanquish™ procedure. However, those with any metal implants such as hip replacements or surgical screws should not undergo this treatment. A short consultation will help you to determine whether Vanquish™ is right for you.
Possible Side Effects
Side effects are not commonly seen with Vanquish™. After treatment, your skin may be a bit pink and warm. This will dissipate shortly following your session.
While results vary from person to person, you will likely begin to see a difference a few weeks after treatment. Be sure to hydrate well prior to your session, and never hesitate to ask questions if you would like to know more.
