Thrive introduces an exclusive new protocol to permanently eliminate abdominal fat – Vanquish™ ME Plus Portland, OR

Vanquish technology is an easy, pain-free approach to removing those last stubborn inches of fat from the abdomen and flanks. While individual results will vary, clinical studies show patients lost an average of two inches of fat, as early as two weeks after their fourth Vanquish treatment. Learn more by reviewing the Vanquish Patient Q & A.

Vanquish works beneath the skin where deep tissue heating induces apoptosis (natural death of fat cells), without harm to skin, internal organs, or muscles. It achieves optimal results with unsurpassed patient safety, treatment ease, and clinical effectiveness.

Unlike liposuction or fat freezing treatments, Vanquish is totally contact-free. You feel only a gentle warming sensation as the Vanquish panel hovers over your skin. Vanquish works beneath the surface, utilizing high frequency waves that target fat cells without harming skin, muscles, or internal organs. The fat cells are heated to a temperature that permanently destroys them, after which they’re processed by the body and eliminated naturally.

Vanquish is the only body sculpting therapy with all these advantages:

  • Largest treatment area of any fat reduction device
  • Comfortable, non-invasive, and pain free
  • No anesthesia, injections, cutting, sutures, or scars
  • Zero downtime
  • Outstanding safety and FDA approved
  • Administered only by trained, certified clinicians

Exclusive to Thrive, each Vanquish treatment is now a combination protocol called Vanquish ME Plus. Utilizing Vanquish in tandem with Exilis Ultra and Cellutone achieves aesthetic results more effectively than with Vanquish ME alone. This advancedapproach melts fat, tightens skin, and improves the appearance of cellulite for toned, attractive contours.

Impress everyone with a slimmer look, courtesy Vanquish!

Vanquish is the newest advancement in cosmetic technology for non-invasive removal of fat. The technology is based on radio frequency or rf multipolar technology. It is specifically tuned to target fat cells, So, the machine will not affect skin or muscle tissue, will only be targeting the fat cells. It’s really pretty simple. It’s kind of like laying in a tanning bed for anybody that’s done that even though we’re not supposed to do that anymore. It’s just a real kind of warmth. The lights are low, it’s kind of relaxes. There’s music. I could fall asleep and take a nap while they’re doing it. It’s just that easy. Most patients will see results in about four to six sessions. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes. There’s no down time that’s required with it. I can go, go, back to work, you know, do whatever I have to do and nobody can tell that I’ve had a treatment. Vanquish is specifically designed for the mid-section, it’s a very common area where that those areas typically will not respond to diet and exercise. All my clothes fit better. I probably dropped at least a size. Vanquish can actually remove or reduce the area by anywhere from you know, 1 to 2 dress sizes extremely common. I actually was able to put a bikini on and feel like I could go out in public this year and my husband really noticed and it just it made such a huge difference for me and it’s made a huge difference in our relationship. When people compliment me at first I didn’t want to tell them what I was doing and now I’m blabbing it everywhere because it’s just it’s So, cool. It’s so easy and I am really impressed with the results.
