Vanquish is an FDA-approved fat reduction method that is safe and effective at destroying fat in targeted areas. This noninvasive treatment is specifically designed to reduce fat in the thighs, abs, back, and arms to contour your body the way you want.
Vanquish has little in common with liposuction, given that it is a completely noninvasive procedure. Yet, it also has some notable differences compared to treatments like noninvasive laser liposuction and CoolSculpting.
Vanquish diminishes the circumference of your abs and thighs using radiofrequency energy to heat fat tissue selectively. The device used does not contact the skin, leaving the skin and muscle above the fat is unaffected.
Treatment Details and Recovery
Vanquish applicators can treat large areas of the body, which reduces the number of treatments needed to get desired results on the abs or thighs. Unlike other nonsurgical fat treatments, this radiofrequency-based method does not require the applicator to touch the skin above the targeted fat deposits. The radiofrequency energy Vanquish applicators emit only affects fat cells because they are denser and less water-filled, meaning they are more susceptible to heat-related damage. Some fat cells will die immediately, while others will take several weeks to be broken down and processed.
Each Vanquish session lasts about 30 to 45 minutes. Aside from some minor redness or swelling, which typically subsides quickly, you won’t have to worry about any downtime or post-procedure requirements. Most doctors recommend four treatments, each spaced apart by one week. After each of these sessions, you’ll be able to return to your regular activities seamlessly.
How Does a Vanquish Procedure Feel?
One of Vanquish’s principal benefits is that it is considered to be very comfortable, especially compared to other noninvasive fat procedures.
You will feel a consistent warmth on the treated body part, as if you were covered by a hot blanket, relaxing you during the process. This warm feeling may persist for some hours post-treatment.
Some patients may experience discomfort if they sweat during their Vanquish procedure, but a technician will readily wipe away perspiration upon a patient’s request. You will also have the ability to pull a safety cord to terminate the treatment if the heat becomes too painful.
A Vanquish treatment results in a shrinking effect in a specific area rather than an immediate removal of fat, as occurs during surgical procedures. Patients usually see results after their first session; these results become less pronounced following the subsequent sessions.
Some patients have dropped a full pant size and lost up to five inches from their waistlines after the prescribed sessions. These results are long-lasting if you live a healthy lifestyle, given that Vanquish kills the entire fat cells rather than emptying the content from the cells.
Candidates for Vanquish
Vanquish is a viable fat reduction method for men and women looking to improve their shape without the costs of surgical procedures and lengthy recovery time.
Unlike other nonsurgical fat loss procedures, this treatment is viable regardless of the Body Mass Index that you have. It is important to note that the aesthetic improvements will vary depending on each patient.
Vanquish Procedure Prices
The cost of Vanquish varies, with elements like the size of the targeted area and the number of sessions directly increasing prices. Overall, however, this treatment is cheaper than other noninvasive fat procedures and body contouring techniques.
Each Vanquish session should cost between $500 and $800, meaning four sessions can cost up to $3,200. Note that many clinics will offer bundles or deals that reduce the total cost if you purchase multiple sessions at once.
