What is Vanquish?

Vanquish is a specialized procedure that provides the removal of unwanted fat on various areas of the body without cutting into the skin or patients having to schedule downtime for healing. This device has been cleared by the FDA for use of deep tissue heating that can be used for nonsurgical reduction of abdominal circumference. While treatments such as CoolSculpting will freeze fat away, Vanquish will heat it and cause it to permanently diminish. This treatment damages the fat cells to provide better body contours.

Does Vanquish work?

Dr. M. Christine Lee has seen many patients in her practice achieve amazing results using Vanquish! With the use of radiofrequency energy, individuals can look great without having to visit a plastic surgeon for the removal of unwanted fat. This energy is completely safe, especially for the surrounding skin and tissues, while being extremely effective in removing unwanted fat cells.

Who is a candidate for Vanquish?

The best candidates are adult patients who are dealing with unwanted fat on the body that is not responsive to diet and exercise. Candidates for treatment are those that are already physically fit and healthy but want targeted results without plastic surgery. This is a more natural way of dealing with unwanted fat. Candidates who should avoid Vanquish treatment are patients that are pregnant, nursing or have metal implants in the body.

What does Vanquish feel like during treatment?

Patients experience a warming sensation on the skin that is comparable to the use of a heating pad. It is not considered painful, though we do closely monitor patient comfort throughout the treatment.

What can I expect after Vanquish treatment?

It is essential that patients understand that the results from Vanquish are not immediate. Instead, they occur over time as the fat cells are destroyed and naturally flushed from the body over the course of time. Patients who have treatments done regularly can experience amazing transformations that cannot always be achieved with traditional dieting and exercising. Most patients will notice changes in the way their clothes fit in approximately two weeks following their first treatment session. The changes continue to occur, and when patients have several treatment sessions, they will enjoy optimum results.

Is Vanquish a safe procedure with no side effects?

Vanquish is extremely safe for the deep tissues as demonstrated by studies in both animals and humans, and clinical trials that were performed well before the release of treatment. It is a device that is cleared by the FDA for body contouring and continues to be a popular choice for patients who have otherwise considered the risks of plastic surgeries. Some patients may experience warming and the attraction of heat to the area that was treated, but this is still relatively comfortable for most of our patients. This is called a “hot spot” and can occur as a short-term side effect. However, when we monitor our patients throughout their treatment, we reduce the risk of this side effect and allow patients to just enjoy their treatment with few worries!
