Vanquish is among the best non-surgical fat removal procedures near Tigard
Thrive anti-aging center in Portland was established to provide top-notch care to men and women who want to age beautifully. Since our practice was established, we have continued to seek innovative technologies. One that has recently emerged as one of the best non-surgical fat removal procedures is Vanquish. Impressed with the clinical performance of this radiofrequency device, we became the only office near Tigard – the only practice in the Northwest, actually – to offer this treatment.
The extra pounds that many men and women carry across their midsection and thighs can be a difficult problem to solve with diet and exercise alone. Most of us simply do not have the time to devote the daily hours necessary to reduce problematic areas! This also means that there is little time to spend in recovery from an invasive fat reducing surgery such as liposuction. For this reason, the demand for non-surgical solutions is high. Fortunately, it is being met with devices such as Vanquish.
What is Vanquish?
Vanquish is a fat-reducing treatment that requires no major investment of time or money. There is no need for anesthesia, incisions, or recovery. Vanquish doesn’t even touch the skin! Using panels that are positioned a few inches away from the body, the device delivers controlled radiofrequency to target cells. The process is very precise, involving sensors that calculate just how much energy should be delivered.
During treatment, the skin’s surface heats to about 100 degrees. This is not as hot as most hot tubs or saunas. Beneath, dermal tissues heat to about 120 degrees. At this temperature, the heated fat cells die in a process called apoptosis. In most cases, cell death occurs instantly. For this reason, patients report noticing results after their very first session. However, fat reduction becomes more apparent as destroyed cells are metabolized by the body. After about 4 treatments, it is possible to reduce circumference by as much as 2 inches.
We are excited to bring such powerful technology to patients from the Portland area. Vanquish has helped many of our patients feel better about their appearance by reducing abdominal fat and thigh fat. Our Flex applicator can also address the arms.
