Does Vanquish Fat Removal Really Work?
What Is Vanquish ME?
Vanquish Fat Removal is a non-surgical fat removal treatment that contours your body. It is a non-invasive treatment that targets fat around your midsection, zoning in on love handles, belly fat, and the unwanted muffin top. The Vanquish ME technology uses thermal energy that does not directly touch your skin and destroys fat cells permanently. It does not damage your skin or muscles, and it covers the largest treatment area in the industry from the revolutionary u-shape design, covering flank to flank. The controlled, targeted therapeutic heat focuses on the problem areas that diet and exercise cannot get.
How Does Vanquish Work?
The treatment uses radiofrequency that turns into thermal heat once it gets under the skin, heating up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The heating of adipose tissue (fat below the skin) causes fatty cell disruption and leads to fatty cell elimination and cell shrinkage. The dead fat cells stay in the body, they are not sucked out or cut out, but rather they break apart and resorb. The fat cell’s lipid content releases into the surrounding space, gets collected into the lymph system, and eventually your body excretes them, eliminating the fat from the treated area.
Is There Any Downtime After Treatment?
Most patients can return to their normal daily activities after treatment and do not experience any side effects or major complications. Since the radiofrequency energy turns into thermal heat, some patients may experience a slight flushing or pinkness of skin where the treatment was administered.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Vanquish?
Good candidates are people who have one or two inches of extra fat around their midsections and prefer non-surgical treatment for fat removal. Patients should have realistic expectations and goals with no existing health issues. Treatment is effective for both men and women and ideal for people who have tried changing their diet and exercise routines with no success in losing the extra belly fat.
There are patients that cannot have this treatment and they are people who have: implants (pacemakers, IUDs, cochlear, defibrillators, insulin pump), metallic implants (screws, rods, stents), tumors in the area being treated, or women who are pregnant. People who are very overweight would benefit more from traditional weight loss methods and the treatment does not work well for people who have excessive amounts of skin from previous weight loss.
Does Vanquish ME Work Better Than Other Fat Removal Treatments?
Can Vanquish ME Replace Liposuction?
Vanquish ME is a great non-surgical option to reduce excess fat in the midsection, is more cost-effective, and requires virtually no recovery time. It is not the same treatment as liposuction and therefore does not administer the same results.
How Does Vanquish Differ From Coolsculpt and Kybella?
Coolsculpt freezes and crystallizes the fat cells and then uses needles to push and pull the tissue into a vacuum, which sometimes can lead to pain and numbness. Kybella is currently only approved for fat removal under the chin. Vanquish ME is the only non-surgical fat removal treatment system that is specifically designed for the midsection, FDA approved for deep tissue heating, pain-free, and has no downtime or side effects.
What Do I Need To Know About Vanquish ME Treatments?
What Does It Feel Like?
Most patients report that the treatment feels like a warm heating pad or a hot stone massage in the designated area. It is not painful or abrasive and some patients find the process relaxing, comfortable, and even therapeutic. No pain medication is needed before or after treatment.
When Will I See Results and How Long Do They Last?
You will typically see results two to three weeks following treatment, although some patients that are young and fit, may see results sooner. Research suggests that patients that have undergone treatment have almost 30 percent reduction in their fat layer and visible results lasting up to four years after treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Treatment plans are tailored per patient and are planned after an examination. However, most patients typically have four treatments that are one week apart.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Sessions usually last 30 to 45 minutes.
What Do I Need To Do Before My First Treatment?
It is recommended to drink a lot of water days before, the day of, and for four days after treatment to accelerate and enhance your results. Light physical activity, like walking, is also recommended after treatment.
Losing Weight With Vanquish
Vanquish vanishes unwanted fatty cells in your body and can eliminate almost 60 percent of fat cells in the treated area. You are transforming your body through contouring, virtually melting away fatty deposits which will reduce your pant size and dress size, making you feel more comfortable and confident.
Fat Elimination vs. Weight Loss
The main goal of Vanquish is fat elimination that contours your body, not weight loss specifically. Although you may lose weight with Vanquish treatments through the fat elimination process, its main function is not geared toward weight loss. This treatment success is not measured by the scale, but rather how your clothes fit, how your body looks, and how it makes you feel.
What Causes Belly Fat?
Belly fat is not only unsightly but also very unhealthy. Excess belly fat can lead to cancer, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. Knowing factors that can cause belly fat can help you make better decisions to live a healthier lifestyle.
Sugary Drinks and Foods
Most people do not know how much sugar they consume in a day. Added sugar is in soft drinks, flavored coffee, sweet tea, cakes, candies, muffins, and frozen yogurt. Next time you head for a snack, check the label for the sugar content and other ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup.
If you are wondering where the term, “beer belly” came from, it originated from consuming too much alcohol. Alcohol may suppress fat-burning and the excess calories get deposited and stored in the midsection.
Trans fat is the unhealthiest fat you can consume, it is added to unsaturated fats to add shelf life to foods like crackers, muffins, and baking mixes.
More than ever, people are living a sedentary lifestyle. With so much technology in our lives, we are sitting down most of the day and not moving our bodies. Studies show that aerobic exercise and strength training can help keep belly fat at bay.
Low Protein Diets
Getting enough protein in your diet can help you feel full longer, increase your metabolism, and help reduce your calorie intake.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What Is Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?
Non-surgical fat reduction is a treatment process that does not require surgery and it breaks down fat cells in targeted areas of the body. It hones in on the layer of fat underneath the skin and above the muscle.
2. How Do I Get Rid of Fat?
One way to get rid of fat with quick results is Vanquish ME. This treatment process uses radio-frequency waves to heat up and destroy fat cells without physically touching the skin.
3. Why Should I Choose Vanquish Over Other Non-Invasive Systems?
Vanquish offers a proven, non-invasive treatment that is effective at reducing fat and is painless, effective, and has quick results with no side effects or downtime after treatment.
4. Does Vanquish Tighten Skin?
Although the treatment is designed to reduce fatty cells underneath the skin, the skin does tighten somewhat through the process.
5. Can I Treat My Entire Body?
Vanquish is not designed to treat every area of your body. Its unique u-shape design covers a wide range of your midsection, starting at your flanks on your back, the entire abdomen, and then to the flank area on the other side of your back. The midsection is easily treated because this is where stubborn fat cells are deposited for most people.
6. Are the Results Permanent?
The fatty cells that are eliminated during treatment are destroyed permanently. The fat cells vanish and do not come back in the treated area. If the patient gains weight after treatment, weight gain will not be evident in the treated areas but can show up in other parts of the body. When fat cells become enlarged that is when fat gain happens. Most patients feel motivated to stay active and lead a healthy lifestyle after treatments.
7. Is the Treatment Safe?
Vanquish is approved by the FDA using radio-frequency waves to eliminate fat in the body. The device does not physically touch your skin and patients can lie-down or sit-down during treatment. The skin will not be burned or scarred during the treatment and the temperature will remain at a comfortable level. Mobile devices can be used during treatment and will not interfere with the technology we use.
8. Why Does It Work Faster Than Other Non-Invasive Treatments?
Vanquish works faster than other non-invasive treatments because it covers more surface area than other treatments. Vanquish is ideal for people who need to treat a large area of their body or multiple body sections. Treating the entire midsection simultaneously helps accelerate the fat elimination process. Small, hand-held devices take a much longer time to treat large areas of the body. Vanquish is the only device that can treat the entire midsection from flank to flank at the same time.
9. How Much Does It Cost?
Body contouring is most likely not covered by your insurance plan since it is a voluntary cosmetic treatment. Reviewing your insurance policy can give you a better idea of what will be covered. Compared to surgical procedures that require time off work and overnight stays in the hospital, Vanquish is quite affordable.
