BTL Vanquish ME Fat Reduction
results may vary based on a variety of factors
Vanquish can treat body fat around the abdomen arms, legs, and hips. Vanquish is ideal for treating larger areas of the body such as the entire abdomen or thighs.
How Vanquish ME Works
Vanquish is FDA-cleared for circumferential reduction of the waist, and destroys resistant fat cells to achieve a beautifully contoured abdomen and trim waistline. Vanquish is a painless, non-invasive treatment that precisely targets heat into the fat layer while protecting surrounding skin. Vanquish ME creates a high-frequency energy field and employs a panel array to treat the entire core in one application.
Fat cells will go through apoptosis (natural cell death) if kept below or above certain temperature thresholds for extended periods of time. Vanquish heats the fat cells to 43-45 degrees Celsius, which is required temperature to initiate apoptosis. The overlying skin and muscles below the subcutaneous fat stay at a cooler temperature due to their naturally higher level of moisture.
Unlike any other radio frequency based system, Vanquish ME employs a panel array to treat the entire abdominal area. A larger area being treated at the same time contributes to a higher cumulative circumferential inch reduction from flank to flank. The energy emitted by Vanquish is 12X higher than other FR systems, allowing it to effectively kill fat cells. Additionally, Vanquish ME can provide the added benefit of subtle tightening to the skin due to the heating of the tissue.
Vanquish is conducted as a series of 4 treatments spaced 1 week apart. Patients experience a MINIMUM of a 1 inch decrease from the waist, and up to 6 inches after the 4 treatment!
