The Vanquish system utilizes patented Radio Frequency (RF) technology to effectively eliminate fat cells around a patient’s stomach and “love handles.” It is completely non-invasive and painless, and there is no down-time for the patient.
In FDA trials, 85% of all test subjects reported being “very satisfied” with their results, and the average patient achieved a reduction of 2.2 inches around their waist and “love handles.” Further, 94.7% of the patients reported the treatment as “comfortable to very comfortable.”
The patient lies down, and the Vanquish hovers over them without making contact with the patient’s skin. Through the use of Focused-field radio frequency, the patient’s skin is heated to 101 degrees, while the underlying fat layer is heated to 120 degrees. BTL’s patented Focus-field RF is frequency tuned specifically for the impedance of the fat, which targets fat cells. It is these higher temperatures that cause the elimination of the fat cells, but during treatment the patient feels only a warming sensation and no pain. An added benefit is a longer-lasting result, because the actual fat cells – not just the lipids inside the cells – are being destroyed.
Most patients require four weekly treatments, and final results are four weeks following the last treatment. Many patients from the FDA trials reported seeing a difference within the first two treatments.
Side effects are minimal. The skin will be warmer than normal immediately after a session and the area may be pink for a short time before returning to its normal color. Regular activities can be resumed immediately following treatment. The Vanquish offers no pain; no down-time; no surgery; no anesthesia; no post-surgical drains; no surgical garments; and for the first time, a procedure that specifically targets and eliminates fat around a patient’s tummy and “love handles.”
