Dermatologist in New Orleans describes Vanquish treatmentBy Dr. Mary Lupo
Vanquish is a method of removing unwanted fat on the body using a special device that targets the deep tissues of the skin with selective radio frequency energy. It does this through a panel that does not touch the skin but instead hovers over the body. It is great for addressing large areas of the body such as the midsection, where it is most commonly used.
Dr. Mary Lupo finds that many patients enjoy the results they obtain from Vanquish without having to go through plastic surgery. She educates patients on how it works by targeting fat and allowing the body to flush out the fat cells naturally. This results in gradual improvements in the treatment area and can assist patients in achieving natural results. Patients report pants fit more loosely and the need to tighten those belt loops.
Patients often have questions regarding this treatment because they typically cannot believe that a product like this really does work. This FDA-cleared device has helped thousands of patients across the United States and Europe achieve better body contours and reducing the circumference of their abdominal area. Patients are very comfortable during the treatment and only experience the heating sensation, which is comparable to the placement of a heating pad on the area. Patients do not need to schedule any downtime or recovery after their procedure, allowing them to get back to their busy day.
Our team of professionals recommends that patients speak to our dedicated dermatologist, Dr. Mary Lupo, to learn about Vanquish as well as other body contouring devices available for use in our practice including Exilis and Ultherapy. They are also used regularly in our facility to assist patients in feeling more confident in their own skin and addressing cosmetic imperfections that make them feel self-conscious.
Our mission at the Lupo Center is to provide patients with innovative, effective and ethical care to make each person look and feel their personal best. To fulfill our goal, we provide state-of-the-art medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments to all patients.
