What is Vanquish?
Vanquish Fat Reduction is an advanced high-tech procedure performed to help reduce fat in the midsection of the body. This noninvasive technique carries none of the risks of infection or side effects of liposuction or other forms of surgery. Vanquish focuses on the fat stores in the abdomen and love handles and successfully destroys targeted fat cells without harming the skin or nearby tissues.
Patients typically lose two to four inches of stubborn belly fat that has not responded to a healthy diet and exercise routine. No anesthesia is necessary when undergoing treatment with Vanquish and patients experience no pain.
Am I a good candidate?
Vanquish Fat Reduction is a safe and effective method of trimming fat from the abdomen. The best candidates are men and women who are close to their ideal weight but cannot get rid of a pocket of abdominal fat. These patients may be similar to those considering abdominal liposuction, but do not want to have to undergo a surgical procedure. Individuals who need to lose the extensive amount of weight typically achieved with bariatric surgeries are typically not the ideal candidates for treatment with Vanquish.
The Vanquish fat reduction procedure
Vanquish uses a Selective RF™ system that delivers radio-frequency energy directly to the targeted fat cells. This heats and destroys the fat cells only, without affecting the skin or any surrounding muscles or tissues. Patients are positioned on a treatment table and the Vanquish device is directed toward the intended area of the abdomen but does not touch the body. Patients may feel a sensation of warming, but no pain or discomfort is associated with this procedure.
A treatment session typically takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. No downtime is necessary after a Vanquish procedure, and patients can resume their normal daily activities immediately.
Vanquish fat reduction results
While a noticeable slimming around the abdominal area does begin to appear in the first few days after a Vanquish treatment, the results become even more substantial over the course of the following weeks as the fat cells are eliminated from the body. Optimal results generally require multiple sessions. The number of treatment sessions may vary by the individual, but typically goals are met after four treatments. The results are long lasting as well, and will remain in place in those patients who maintain a steady weight.

Side effects of Vanquish fat reduction
Vanquish generally produces few if any side effects. The most common side effects associated with this procedure include a slight redness to the skin around the treatment area and mild tenderness. They typically resolve on their own within a few hours following the procedure.
