Reduce your body fat and contour your body with Vanquish™ ME in Portland, OR
Almost everyone stores extra unwanted fat in their thighs, abdominal area, or both, and oftentimes, a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen can do little to make that fat budge. That’s where the revolutionary new body contouring technology, Vanquish™ ME, comes in! With Vanquish ME, you can reduce your body fat in these areas safely and comfortably without surgery, injections, or other invasive procedures. The professional team at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center is excited to offer this therapy to its Portland, OR area clients.
What is Vanquish ME?
Created by the cosmetic technology company BTL, Vanquish ME is an effective, non-surgical body contouring treatment that has been proven to kill fat using radio-frequency technology. It is safe and has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the reduction of fat in the thighs and abdominal area. Vanquish offers patients numerous benefits:
- It has been proven to be effective at reducing your fat
- The treatment is truly non-invasive, with no downtime – you can return to work right after your treatment
- Vanquish can be used on larger treatment areas than other body sculpting technologies such as CoolSculpt
- Instead of needing to restrict movement after your Vanquish treatment, which is necessary with some other body contouring technologies, exercise is actually encouraged to help your body eliminate the treated fat cells
- It is painless and requires no anesthesia, incisions, injections, or discomfort; in fact, the applicator does not even touch your skin during treatment
- The treatment sessions only last about 30 minutes
- After a series of treatments, up to two to four inches can be lost in the areas that were treated
- It is affordable
- The results can last forever when you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine
How it works
In a series of four to eight sessions, the Vanquish device emits radio-frequency energy to heat the fat cells in the desired treatment area to about 41 degrees Celsius. When the fat cells are heated to this temperature, they transform into lipids, at which point your body naturally flushes them from the body as waste products. Vanquish does not harm your surrounding tissues, skin, or muscle in this process. After your treatment, only very minor side effects typically occur, such as temporary redness, swelling, or the feeling of warmth in the treatment area. Because your body needs to metabolize the treated fat cells, results are usually first noticeable about three weeks after your first treatment, and you’ll see your final results about 30 days after your final session.
Who is a good candidate
Vanquish ME works best on patients who already maintain a healthy lifestyle and only have some extra body fat they’d like to eliminate, but it does not have any BMI restrictions like other body contouring treatments do. It does not penetrate below the muscle, so it cannot eliminate visceral fat that accumulates around your body’s organs. Implantable devices that contain metals, such as hip replacements or copper intrauterine devices (IUDs), interfere with the machine’s energy; if you have one of these devices, the team at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center will discuss alternative options with you.
Preparing for your treatment
The treatment works best if you are well-hydrated because the radiofrequency targets the cells better if they have water in them. Other than making sure you drink ample water prior to your procedure, there are no preparations or restrictions necessary prior to your Vanquish treatments!
