Vanquish—The Latest Liposuction Alternative

Amidst all the fat fighting solutions available on the market today, there’s something innovative and new that’s on the cusp of being launched right here in the US. Meet Vanquish, the latest in the non-surgical liposuction category that uses radio frequency energy to zap unwanted fat. Targeting the stomach and love handle areas, Vanquish is of particular interest because it treats these areas without touching the skin, without causing discomfort, and only requiring 4 half-hour treatments for optimal results.


Vanquish is approved for deep-tissue heating, which is known for effectively targeting and destroying fat, with few side effects. Sensors in the panels positioned around the treatment areas “read” the patient’s body fat in order to customize the amount of energy delivered during each 30-minute treatment session. Focused-field radio frequency energy heats the skin to a steamy 101℉ while subcutaneous fat hits a scorching 120℉! Even at those temperatures, however, patients describe the sensation as “warm,” without significant discomfort. Because body temperature does rise during treatment, plan to wear short sleeves or go sleeveless in a lightweight fabric. It’s also advised to be well hydrated both the day before and the day of treatment. As a rule of thumb, plan to drink one liter (8 glasses) of water the day before, the day of, and the 2 days after treatment.


As for actual results, according to a study conducted by Vanquish manufacturer BLT Aesthetics, patients experienced visible results after a single treatment. Following the 4 recommended treatment sessions, each performed a week apart, BLT reported a 59% loss in abdominal fat of those patients treated as well as 2 to 3 inches in waist measurements. Results are said to be long term, as Vanquish doesn’t just rid the cells of fat, but completely destroys the entire fat cells themselves.


Notably, while some patients may see results after their first treatment, most can expect to see actual improvements within a few weeks after their final treatment.


Okay, so you might lose a few inches, but what’s the cost in side effects and downtime? Reported side effects are few, without nerve pain, damage to the top and middle layers of skin, hair follicles, muscles, or internal organs. However, you can expect recovery from Vanquish treatments to include a few days of redness and swelling in the treatment location. The good news is that you can go back to your daily tasks immediately. As noted above, it’s also advised to drink plenty of water to flush your system after treatment to speed recovery and time on the road to results. Experts predict that 4 treatment sessions will cost around $2000. Vanquish is expected to become widely available in the US next month.
