Vanquish is an FDA-approved, non-surgical body contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to target and shrink fat cells. At The Dermatology Clinic, we offer this treatment to help patients achieve a leaner figure. Learn more about Vanquish and see if it’s right for you.

What Is Vanquish?

Vanquish is a non-surgical procedure that targets pockets of fat by heating specific tissues. Unlike liposuction, this treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat tissues in the target area to shrink or eliminate fat cells. Though Vanquish penetrates deep into fat layers, the device doesn’t make contact with your skin.

How Does This Treatment Work?

The Vanquish applicator can target large areas of the body, which means you may need fewer treatments than other procedures to produce similar results. In most cases, clients have about four sessions each week that last 30-45 minutes. The process is contactless, and patients typically don’t report any pain during treatment. Because Vanquish uses heat technology, you’ll feel warming sensations in the target areas. Many patients compare the experience to the feeling of a heavy blanket and find it to be relaxing. There’s no downtime after treatment, so you can resume your regular activities once you leave our office. However, be prepared to feel a warm sensation for a few hours after your session.

What Are the Benefits of Vanquish?

Rather than an immediate bulge removal, Vanquish can shrink the general target area. Some patients start to see results after a single session; others cite losing up to five inches in the target area after four or more sessions. Because Vanquish affects the entire fat cell rather than just fat inside the cell, its results typically last longer and are easier to maintain than similar procedures.

Am I a Good Candidate for Vanquish?

If you’re looking for body contouring without the recovery period of a surgical procedure, consider trying Vanquish. This treatment is intended to help with specific pockets of fat. If you’ve tried exercising and changing your diet but aren’t seeing results, Vanquish might be right for you. As with all cosmetic procedures, consult a medical professional before moving forward.
