As the holiday season approaches, men and women may feel concerned about how they will fit into their best cocktail-party clothing. The distress felt at the holidays may be outdone only by that which is felt as the warmer days of summer approach. The fact is that we always want to look our best. There may be several times throughout the year when we utter the words “if only I were a size smaller.”

In our Portland anti-aging center, you can consult with our experienced staff about body contouring treatments that give you the results you want. Dr. Maddox, demanding the best for patients near Lake Oswego and other areas, has spent a great deal of time and energy on our selection of services and technologies. One of the ways we assist patients in reducing the size of their midsection is with Vanquish.

The evolution of body contouring

Over the past several decades, technologies dedicated to the reduction of unwanted fat have been in a continual state of development. First we had liposuction. The surgical removal of fat may offer relatively quick results – noticeable once postsurgical swelling has subsided – but there are also inherent risks with anesthesia and incisions.

Non-surgical methods of reducing fat have also been developed. Ultrasound technology, which has been safely used in diagnostic medicine for decades, has shown results by sending sound waves deep into the skin. This heating approach, as well as the cooling method, or cryotherapy, may cause some discomfort due to direct contact with the skin.

Cryotherapy has been known to cause discomfort both during and after treatment. Patients often report swelling and tingling that lasts anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

Vanquish uses heat to destroy fat cells, but the panels are situated off of the skin. Precise settings deliver heat to the target area at just over 100 degrees. On the surface, this feels like standing in front of a heater. Beneath the skin, tissues are warmed to about 120 degrees, prompting fat cells to shrink. This “smart” device reads your unique body composition and customizes the delivery of thermal energy for optimal comfort and results.

Thrive has a menu of services that can meet your needs for fat reduction, skin tightening, and much more. Contact us today.
