What is Vanquish?
Patients in and around the Portland area who are interested in learning about noninvasive body sculpting solutions may be interested in a treatment called Vanquish. Vanquish is a contouring option specifically designed for the abdominal area. It works on the stomach area by using high intensity focused radio frequency energy emitted by special panels that hover above the body and never touch the skin. Patients will experience a warming sensation on their skin, but what is actually happening deep down is the radio frequency energy is focused on the deep tissues and it induces apoptosis – the natural death of fat cells. The fat cells are flushed out of the body and eliminated in a natural manner. This means that patients will see gradual results instead of immediate results, but this is often preferred to avoid the look of having “work done.”
Dr. Adam Maddox is a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist at Thrive and he reviews with patients the benefits of treatments such as Vanquish. Most patients will be able to see amazing results with four to six treatments spaced weeks apart, and even those who are not at their ideal weight may be considered positive candidates for this procedure. Contraindications include pregnancy or nursing, as well as men and women who have internal metal implants. While the results of Vanquish cannot compare to liposuction, it is a great option for those with mild to moderate fat deposits in the midsection that can be easily controlled with radio frequency solutions such as this. Vanquish does not require any downtime or healing, is done without anesthetics and injections, and is approved by the FDA for ultimate safety and effective results. At our practice, we administer Vanquish treatments by a trained professional who has the experience to provide comprehensive services.
