Vanquish is a revolutionary non-invasive fat reduction treatment widely considered to be one of the biggest technological breakthroughs in body sculpting in recent years. Vanquish uses advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology to melt fat and slim down areas that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Since its introduction, Vanquish has received wide coverage in the media, praised as an affordable and effective alternative to surgery.
Designed to target fat cells, the Vanquish device uses radiofrequency energy to selectively destroy excess pockets of fat. Radiofrequency waves can distinguish between fat and other types of tissue, ensuring that muscle and skin will not be damaged as fat cells are heated and liquefied (a process called lipolysis). When the fat has been broken down, the body sweeps away the detritus via its natural elimination channels. The Vanquish laser treatment can be custom calibrated for every individual. It can also treat a large surface area and deliver uniform results. Safe and efficient, a treatment can be completed during a lunch hour appointment.
If you are close to your ideal weight, yet are unable to reduce areas of localized fat, you may be the ideal candidate for Vanquish fat removal. The contouring treatment is not an overall weight loss solution and cannot replace a healthy weight reduction strategy.
The Vanquish device has adjustable panels, which emit the fat-melting energy. Like a heat lamp, the panels are positioned above the treatment area and do not come into contact with the skin. During the treatment, patients experience a heating sensation as the radiofrequency waves penetrate the skin. However, the procedure is well-tolerated and pain-free.
Vanquish fat removal treatment does not have any serious side effects associated with it. After the session, patients report mild and temporary redness and warmth around the treatment area. However, no downtime is needed to recover.
To help your body process the dead fat cells, it is highly recommended that you drink plenty of water (64 oz.) the day prior to your appointment. After treatment, continue to replenish the body with liquids to stay well-hydrated.
Because the body must process the dead fat cells, the results will become increasingly visible over the course of a few weeks. The number of treatments needed for optimal results will vary from individual to individual. Although many individuals note a positive change after a single appointment, the usual course of treatment consists of 4 sessions, spaced about a week apart.
