The fat removal medical field has come a long way since liposuction was first introduced. There is technology available that can literally freeze the fat cells in the abdominal area to be eliminated by the human body. There is also technology available that can heat fat out of existence.
How Vanquish™ Works
Vanquish™ is the latest in fat removal technology available. It’s a device that helps to eliminate unwanted fat through the use of high frequency radio-frequency (RF) waves to gently heat the fat cells.
RF energy is a kind of electrical energy. It’s very low-frequency forms of this energy that are used in telecommunication technology, such as wireless internet and cell phones. Higher frequencies of this energy are the kind that are widely used in the cosmetic surgery and dermatology fields of medicine for reducing fat and improving the appearance of skin.
There is a panel on the Vanquish™ device that allows our medical technicians to accurately aim the radio-frequency energy at targeted areas of the body. The energy that is produced can easily penetrate the skin. However, it can’t pass through the layers of fat underneath the skin as easily.
Instead, the radio-frequency energy remains at the surface of the layer of fat, heating it slowly and gently. As the fat cells are heated, they die. The dead fat cells are then absorbed by the body and eliminated as human waste after some time. As the fat cells are removed from the region, the thickness of the layer of fat diminishes.
Benefits of Vanquish™
The Vanquish™ device can treat larger areas of the body at one time when compared with other similar devices. This means fewer visits to the clinic for treating the same area. Usually, an area can be treated for fat removal just once with great success, especially the abdomen.
The RF energy is absorbed into the skin to reach the fat cells. As the skin absorbs the energy, it can shrink significantly. This adds to the overall leaner appearance of our patients once the fat cells have been successfully removed by their bodies.
The Vanquish™ device and procedure have been approved by the FDA as a safe, non-invasive option for deep tissue heating. The procedure is reported to be comfortable and is over in about 30 minutes on average.
