What is radio frequency?

Radiofrequency is a special form of electricity. Radiofrequency is used extensively in dermatology and cosmetic surgery to target certain layers of the skin to help with skin tightening, collagen regeneration, and now deep tissue heating and fat elimination.

What does Vanquish feel like? Does Vanquish hurt?

There is a mild, gentle warming sensation during treatment that is similar to having a heating pad placed in the area of treatment. Vanquish is not painful, and the patient's comfort level is monitored during Vanquish treatment.

How should I prepare for Vanquish treatment?

All metal jewelry should be removed from the treatment area.
Starting 2 days prior to treatment, patients are required to be well hydrated drinking at least 1 quart of water per day. Patients must continue to drink appropriate amounts of water through the treatment day and 2 days afterwards. Water helps to hydrate the skin. This allows the radiofrequency energy from Vanquish to travel through the skin and target the fat layer more effectively and flush the fat cells through your lymphatic system.
Patients should avoid dehydrating activities in the couple of days prior to treatment. This would include high-intensity, high-perspiration activities such as extensive aerobics, physical training, or hot yoga. Patients should also avoid excessive alcohol intake prior to Vanquish as this can have a dehydrating effect on the body.

How long is a treatment session? How many treatments will I need?

A Vanquish treatment session lasts 30 - 45 minutes. Clinical studies on Vanquish were based on a total of four weekly sessions. Individual results may vary and some patients may require more treatments or wish to undergo additional series of treatments to target additional areas of the body.

What should I expect immediately after Vanquish treatment?

The skin in the area of the treatment will be warm to touch as the core fat has reached an approximate temperature of 120 degrees Farenheit and the skin approximately 100 degrees Farenheit. The skin remains warm and slightly pink for a period of minutes to a couple of hours following Vanquish treatment. Temporary swelling is also possible in the area of treatment and resolves within a few hours.

How long does it take to see results following Vanquish?

Based on clinical studies in Europe, patients may report an improvement in their waistline as soon as 2 weeks following the last treatment with Vanquish.

What should I expect following Vanquish treatment?

According to clinical studies, patients experienced approximately 2 inches of fat loss off their waist circumference. Individual results will vary. Some patients may experience mild weight loss, although this does not always occur.

Animal studies using Vanquish demonstrated a 60% reduction in fat in the areas of treatment. Human studies are currently underway to measure the decrease in fat thickness using ultrasound measurements.

What happens to fat cells after they are treated by Vanquish?

Fat cells that undergo apoptosis (the natural form of cell death) are broken down by our own body's scavenger cells, filtered through the lymphatic system, metabolized by the liver, and finally eliminated from the body, primarily through urine.

Who is a poor candidate for Vanquish? Are there contraindications?

Individuals with a metal or implantable device should not be treated with Vanquish. Women who are pregnant or breast feeding cannot undergo treatment with Vanquish.

Is Vanquish safe? Are there any side effects from Vanquish treatment?

Yes, Vanquish is safe for deep tissue indicating as validated by animal and human studies.

There are very few side effects from Vanquish treatment. A "hot spot" may occur if Vanquish is positioned too close to a bony area of the body. This is remedied by repositioning the Vanquish panel around the body.

During treatment, patient's skin may warm causing light perspiration that can attract heat, leading to an increased warmth sensation. To avoid this or the opportunity for a skin burn, the individual is monitored during treatment and excess sweat is removed mid-way through Vanquish treatment.

Can Vanquish hurt my skin or internal organs?

Vanquish is very safe and has built-in safety measures to ensure patient comfort and health during treatment. The high frequency nature of the device preferentially targets fat. Skin, sweat glands, hair follicles, muscle, and internal organs are not affected by treatment, as proven by clinical studies of the Vanquish device.

If the skin accumulates moisture during treatment, or if the Vanquish panels are positioned too close to an underlying bone, the patient could feel a "hot spot" on the skin. The panel is simply repositioned and perspiration on the skin is removed by the operator if needed to ensure that treatment is comfortable.

A safety cord is provided to the patient during treatment, and if discomfort is experienced, treatment can be stopped through this device. Furthermore, there are automatic shut off mechanisms built into the device. The Vanquish device continually adjusts the level of energy delivered to the tissues through feedback mechanisms and monitoring of the tissues.
