Many men and women come to the practice of Dr. Christine Lee with not only medical dermatology concerns but also aesthetic issues. Those who have spent hours in the gym and months of calorie counting may still be dealing with unwanted fat in a specific area of the body, most often, the abdominal area. The fat around the abdomen can be the most stubborn area to address, and many believe that the only option for attaining better body contours is with plastic surgery. Thankfully, there have been considerable improvements in today’s technology that allow patients to achieve better body contours and eliminate unwanted fat in the stomach area. This procedure is known as Vanquish.

Vanquish, Walnut Creek

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute provides Vanquish treatments for patients who are interested in achieving improved contours in the midsection area. The process of Vanquish uses radio frequency energy that can selectively heat fat in the body and allow it to be flushed from the body over the course of time. The Vanquish device never touches the skin, but instead has special panels that hover over the body on the treatment table to administer the radio frequency energy.

Vanquish is highly desirable for patients who want to address unwanted fat in the midsection without surgery. Our team encourages patients to visit The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to educate themselves further on the advantages of this treatment over liposuction and tummy tucks. Many will find that this FDA-cleared device can provide amazing results.

Dr. Christine Lee is proud to offer Vanquish and welcomes new patients to her practice to learn about the ways in which this can dramatically enhance the natural body contours and eliminate unwanted fat on the midsection. Contact the team of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today to book a consultation appointment.
