DC Derm Docs Exclusive: Pain-Free Fat Reduction System
Vanquish, the newest non-invasive body contouring treatment, is the first that incorporates
“focused-field radio frequency” to destroy fat without touching the patient’s body.
Consider Vanquish if:
- Diet and exercise aren’t working
- You can’t get rid of those last few inches
- You want to look thinner for an upcoming special occasion
Vanquish targets the stomach, love handles and problem areas that diet and exercise don’t fix. Lose up to three inches with Vanquish with just four weekly 30 minute treatments.
Sensors built into the device “read” the patient’s body fat and calculate the amount of energy the machine will deliver during each 30-minute treatment.
Vanquish heats the skin to 101 degrees and the underlying fat to 120 degrees in order to destroy fat cells. Because the device destroys the fat cells themselves and not just the fat found inside the cells, results are long lasting. Patients typically do not feel any pain compared to other body contouring treatments.
The treatment requires four 30-minute sessions spaced a week apart for maximum results. Some patients notice a visible difference after the first treatment but after the fourth treatment, the average person loses up to two inches from their waistline.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Vanquish will not cause you any pain. The device does not touch your body directly. Most patients report that it feels like a warming sensation or a heating pad. You may sweat a little.
What are the most common side effects?
Immediately after treatment, your skin will be warmer than usual and may be pink. The surface temperature of your skin will have been heated to above its normal temperature. The temperature of the skin will return to normal soon after treatment. Although uncommon, it is possible to have minor tender red areas.
How should I prepare for treatment?
Patients should dress in lightweight, comfortable clothing or layers during colder weather. Because body temperature will increase during treatment, you may be more comfortable in a short sleeved or sleeveless top. We also advise patients to be well hydrated the day before treatment and the day of treatment. Drink one liter or 8 glasses of water the day before treatment, the day of treatment and two days following treatment.
Will there be any recovery time?
You can resume your normal activities after treatment, but it is advisable that you drink extra water.
How soon will I see results?
Some patients may begin to see results after their first treatment. However most patients typically report the greatest improvement within a few weeks after their last treatment.
For optimal results, consider exilis to tighten any loose or sagging skin.
