The next generation of body contouring

Woman with fat abdomen, overweight female stomach

Virtually throughout the modern history of American culture, women have craved shapely curves with alluring midsections. Attaining a trimmer midriff without surgery, extreme workouts, or strict dieting seemed like something of a fantasy – until now. I’m finding that a revolutionary new system called Vanquish is a real game changer in long term fat removal.

The Vanquish system is cleared by the FDA for deep tissue heating. It solves a number of problems that exist with previous non-invasive fat reduction techniques:

  • Discomfort. Earlier systems that destroyed fat thermally – either with heat or cold – could be uncomfortable, even painful. Vanquish patients feel a warming sensation and the treatment is comfortable.
  • Duration of treatment. Each session takes only about 30 minutes, with four treatments recommended for most patients. Other methods may take an hour or more per session.
  • Treatment area. Some devices can only be used on small portions of the body, where flesh can be pulled into a vacuum. The entire midsection circumference can be treated with Vanquish. That makes results efficient and uniform.
  • Affordability. Vanquish treatment is more economical than surgical fat removal and cost effective compared to other non-surgical methods.
  • Safety. There’s minimal risk of hot spots. A trained clinician monitors temperature, easily making adjustments to the applicator panels if necessary.
  • Recovery time. There is essentially no downtime with Vanquish. Patients return to work or other activities right away.
  • Effectiveness. A recent study in Prague showed visible results on patients with love handles after just two weeks. They lost an average 2.23 inches in waist circumference within eight weeks.

The procedure is simple. The patient just lies down comfortably. Our technician adjusts panels about an inch above the surface of the skin. As the panels heat up they transmit radio frequency energy to specifically targeted fat. Because fat cells are denser and hold less water, this technology differentiates them from skin, muscles, and nearby organs. Those tissues are unharmed during treatment. The radio frequency energy causes the demise of fat cells; some right away and others over the course of several weeks. As fat cells die, they are harmlessly filtered through the body’s lymphatic system and excreted in urine.

The really interesting point is that Vanquish fat loss is permanent so long as you maintain your weight and fitness level. Your body doesn’t produce new fat cells once you reach adulthood. If you gain weight in the future, it won’t be in areas treated with Vanquish.

Patients can expect to lose several inches from waist size and drop about three pounds, without changing their diets. They can lose larger volumes of fat with liposuction, but with Vanquish there is none of the risks of surgery or anesthesia and no healing period.

I see Vanquish as a real technological breakthrough and I’m pleased to be one of the elite corps of doctors offering it.
