Noninvasive body contouring and fat reduction procedures are gaining in popularity among men and women. Vanquish fat reduction is the newest noninvasive body contouring treatment. It is ideal for shaping the stubborn mid-section of the body especially the abdomen and flanks or love handles. It selectively delivers radio frequency energy to heat and destroy the fat cells and delivers measurable outcomes on large areas, without any discomfort to the patient.
The stationary hands-off device is placed above the treatment area at least 1-2 centimeters away from the body. The sensors accurately calculate the radio energy absorption by the fat cells, allowing the surgeon to make adjustments to maximize the treatment. During the treatment, the patient experiences only a warm sensation in the targeted area as the RF waves heat the deeper layers of fat to 120 degrees and outer layers of the skin to about a comfortable 101 degrees. The cutting-edge technology zaps fat without affecting the surrounding tissues.
According to a preliminary care report on the Vanquish system, the device is safe and efficacious for non-invasive body contouring and circumferential reduction. A report in Daily Beauty Reporter says that in a study conducted on 25 patients, visible results were seen after the first treatment with a reduction of up to 59% of subcutaneous abdominal fat after the full course of 4-6 sessions. There was a surprising improvement in the abdominal contour with a reduction in the waistline by 2-3 inches. Studies also revealed that there was no damage to the surrounding anatomical structures — nerves, top and middle layers of skin, hair follicles, muscles or internal organs.
Each body contouring session takes just 30 minutes and patients can return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure. Side effects may include a few days of mild redness and swelling in the treated areas, which subside quickly. Results are visible soon after the first treatment session and will continue to improve over the following weeks. Additional treatment sessions may be needed to get better results.
