Atlanta plastic surgeon Louis DeJoseph, M.D., at Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, is the first in Atlanta to offer the newest fat reducer – Vanquish. Vanquish is a non-invasive fat reducing method that utilizes a focus field radio frequency device.
Zap away your fat without any pain or discomfort. In fact, the machine never touches your body. Vanquish is approved for deep tissue heating, a known method for targeting fat, with minimal side effects. For optimal results, it is recommended that patients have 4 Vanquish treatments scheduled a week apart. During the Vanquish treatment session, the patient lies underneath an apparatus with adjustable panels that are positioned around the area of the body that is to be treated such as the waistline, back fat, and love handles. Sensors built into the device “read” the patient’s body fat and customize the amount of energy the machine will deliver. Each session will take approximately 30 minutes.
How Does the Vanquish Procedure Work?
During the treatment, the patient will lie comfortably on a bed with the device positioned over the targeted area at least 1 to 2 cm from the skin, delivering RF-based energy. The Vanquish device is able to selectively heat the fat cells to the temperature of 44-45°C while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected at 40-41°C. Patients report that it feels warm but not uncomfortable, somewhat like standing close to a radiator.
The Vanquish treatment delivers energy based on the impedance of fat tissue in the patient. The device constantly adjusts energy delivery in order to induce and maintain a consistent heating of the tissue. Once the fat cells reach a therapeutic temperature, the cells are fragmented and then die resulting in long term or permanent fat reduction.
Common side effects include mild redness, tissue tenderness, which generally fades away in about an hour after the procedure. Patients can resume normal activities immediately.
What Sets Vanquish Apart From Other Fat Reducing Methods
There is nothing like Vanquish on the market. One of the unique and positive features of Vanquish is that it can treat relatively large areas at one time with consistent results. All of the other non-invasive devices require multiple small treatment areas and lengthy treatment sessions.
Established in 1993, BTL Aesthetics of Framingham, Massachusetts is the developer and manufacturer of Vanquish. The company is considered to be one of the best creators of body contouring, fat reduction, skin tightening and anti-wrinkle and anti-cellulite care. They report that there have been no complaints of nerve pain, and no damage to the top and middle layers of skin, hair follicles, muscles, or internal organs.
Amazing Results in Reducing Inches
Through a group study that BTL Aesthetics conducted involving 25 women, it was reported to have visible results after the first treatment. After the completion of the full course of 4 sessions, 59 percent of abdominal fat was destroyed, on average, resulting in an average of two and up to a three inch reduction in waist size. Atlanta board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Louis DeJoseph, has researched a lot of different non-invasive fat treatments and found Vanquish to be the one he would feel confident in recommending to his patients that are looking for a non-surgical way to reduce fat.
