Vanquish is a technology that is highly acclaimed by doctors in America and Europe
Vanquish is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive fat removal and fat reduction procedure that eliminates fat through radio frequency (RF). The contactless RF technology ensures comfort and safety while treating a larger area.
Treatments are safe for all healthy patients who want to take control of their core and improve the problem areas when exercise and diet have failed. This is one of the many body contouring options we offer for those who desire aesthetic improvement without the cost and recovery time of surgery.
Vanquish is the first non-contact, radio frequency treatment which disrupts fatty cells through selective heating without damaging the surrounding area, a process known as lipolysis. This is the breakdown of triglycerides into free fatty acids in the adipose tissue stores. This facilitates the shrinkage and elimination of fat cells within the targeted area which are disposed of through the lymphatic draining system. Once fat cells are denatured, they do not regrow, the are dead, however, without a continuation of healthy eating and exercise the fat cells surrounding the eliminated ones will grow bigger in size. Fat cells targeted are in the subcutaneous layer of the skin which means that the radio frequency does not penetrate the muscle tissue as these fat stores are above this layer of muscle mass.
The treatment covers an area of 20 x 70cm, making it suitable for larger areas such as the abdomen, or the outer thighs.
Continuous heating denatures fat cells which are secreted naturally through the lymphatic draining system
Selective radiofrequency passes through your body, the treatment is mild with some possibility of a warm feeling. The treatment recommendation for optimum results is 6-8 treatments, preferably once a week, however it may be better for some to have further treatments.
To assess the ultimate effects of the treatment process, a period of 12 weeks is recommended whilst the body continues to work on the area/treated eliminating the fat cells through your lymphatic drainage system.
Vanquish is suitable for “stubborn fat” areas that require contouring. For its success it is essential for you to be willing to put your part of the deal into the programme. This means a sensible diet, proper hydration (recommended 2 litres a day), and regular exercise.
It is not suitable for people who have had a hip replacement or plates in the area to be treated. The other exclusion is if you have a copper IUD (intrauterine device also known as the coil) fitted – you can check with your doctor as not all coils contain copper. The reason for this is metal interferes with the radiofrequency flow.
Doctors in America using Vanquish have reported a reduction of 7cm up to 12 weeks on completion of the treatment.
