Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is Vanquish?
Vanquish is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that can remove inches from the back and abdomen. The device emits radiofrequency energy that heats the skin and underlying fat cells, destroying them so they can be eliminated through the body’s natural processes. A special sensor assesses the patient’s body fat content, customizing the amount of energy delivered to meet the specific needs of each individual patient.
Who should have Vanquish treatments?
Vanquish treatments are appropriate for nearly every patient with isolated deposits of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. It is usually advised for patients that are already a healthy weight and looking to whittle down areas of the midsection for a smoother, leaner contour. Patients are recommended to adhere to a healthy diet and daily exercise program during and after treatment to ensure the best possible results.
How does it work?
A Vanquish treatment is completely painless and some patients even find the experience soothing and relaxing. You will lie in a comfortable position while the device is positioned over the treatment area. You will feel a warming sensation during the procedure, which some liken to standing next to a radiator. Treatments usually take around 30 minutes to complete.
What is recovery like?
After a Vanquish treatment, your skin will feel warm and may appear red for a few hours. A small number of patients may also have tenderness around the treatment area for a day or two. You are able to return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. Patients are encouraged to drink plenty of water during the first few days after treatment to help the body with the elimination of the destroyed fat cells.
What type of results can I expect?
Some patients will see preliminary results immediately following their very first treatment session. However, we usually recommend a series of 4-6 treatment sessions, spaced weekly, to ensure patients achieve their desired outcome. Best results are usually evident within a few weeks after the last treatment session, as the body completes the elimination process and skin conforms over the new body contour.
Because Vanquish fully destroys fat cells so they can be eliminated by the body, this procedure is considered a permanent method of body contouring. However, if you do not adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program after the procedure, you may find fat deposits develop in other areas.
Vanquish is a non-invasive method of body contouring that can achieve excellent results. In clinical studies, patients lost an average of 2-4 inches from the treatment area. The procedure is quick and painless, and you can achieve full results in just a few weeks.
