Vanquish, a breakthrough, FDA approved, fat-reduction treatment.

Are you frustrated by stubborn fat around the abdomen that just won’t budge no matter what you do? Exercise and diet don’t always work that way you want, but there is a solution! Vanquish Fat Removal is a new, state of the art, non-invasive treatment that uses focused-field radio frequency (RF) energy to heat and kill abdominal fat cells permanently. This is a big technological breakthrough.

Why is Vanquish Different from Other Fat Removal Treatments?

First, Vanquish does not require anesthesia so there is no risk of infection or downtime. The Vanquish devise does not make contact with the skin and instead hovers over the abdomen initiating deep tissue heating to kill fat cells without affecting underlying skin or internal organs. During the procedure, the device covers a large area and can target the abdomen, love handles, dreaded muffin top, thighs, and saddlebags. This larger treatment area helps to not only reduce inches, but to re-shape and tighten skin. What’s more, the procedure is completely pain free. Patients have described Vanquish as very relaxing, with the warmth of a heating pad.

How does Vanquish Work?

To prepare for treatment, patients should drink lots of water— the more water in the cells, the easier it is for RF waves to target fat. To start, sensors built into the device scan and “read” a patient’s body fat level to calculate the amount of energy needed during each 30-minute procedure. Four 30-minute sessions spaced one week apart are required for maximum results. To kill fat cells, the surface skin is heated to 101 degrees bringing the underlying fat layer to 120 degrees. Because the device destroys fat cells and not just the fat found inside cells, results are long lasting. Some patients notice a visible difference after the first session; however, after the fourth treatment as much as two inches of fat is removed. The Vanquish procedure has minimal side effects that may include redness of the skin and a slight warm sensation at the treatment site.
