Patients can enjoy fat reduction with Vanquish treatment in New OrleansBy Dr. Mary Lupo
What is Vanquish fat reduction?To understand how Vanquish reduces fat and contours the midsection, it helps to be clear on what Vanquish is not. It is not a diet or workout regimen. It is not a weight loss program. It is not a cure for obesity. It is not a surgery. Vanquish uses selective radiofrequency energy to destroy targeted fat cells, resulting in a naturally trimmer, more sculpted midsection.
Without touching your skin, the device sends a carefully controlled measure of RF energy deep into fat deposits. Fat cells rupture and are flushed through the body's natural processes. Vanquish has built-in safety features to monitor and maintain comfortable skin temperature. Skin, muscles, and organs are not at risk.
- Who is a good candidate for Vanquish fat reduction?
Because treatment is non-surgical and non-narcotic, most patients are good candidates for Vanquish. However, be assured that you'll have a thorough consultation and examination before treatment is scheduled. It is for anyone wanting reduction of belly and "love handle" fat at the same time.
- What does "no touch treatment" mean?
The Vanquish device never touches your skin, for discreet treatment, comfort, and safety.
- How is Vanquish different from liposuction?
Vanquish is non-surgical and non-invasive. There is no anesthetic, incisions, sutures, or scarring. Treatment is painless. You simply relax comfortably.
- What recovery time should I expect?
There is no downtime. You may return to normal activities right after a Vanquish appointment. The only aftercare necessary is to drink extra water for a day or two to encourage your body to cleanse destroyed fat cells.
- What are the side effects of Vanquish?
Some patients have a bit of redness or warmth in the treatment area, but it resolves quickly.
- Is treatment convenient?
Very. The only advance preparation required is to drink plenty of water. A Vanquish session takes about 30 minutes. Generally, four treatments, several weeks apart, are recommended for maximum fat reduction.
- How effective is Vanquish?
Change can become visible within just a few days of the first treatment. In most cases though, transformation occurs in about two weeks as the body flushes destroyed fat cells. Full results are typically seen within a few weeks of the final treatment. Fat reduction lasts as long as you maintain your current weight and lifestyle. If you gain weight in the future, it won't be in the Vanquish treated area.
