VANQUISH ME BODY CONTOURING AT VITALOGY MEDICAL SPA IN HOMEWOOD, ALABAMA

Dr. Farah Sultan, our physician, and medical director, invested in Vanquish ME for Body Contouring because the system is FDA cleared for fat reduction with a long track record of proven results. VANQUISH is a breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction by BTL Aesthetics (the makers of Emsculpt NEO). Vanquish ME is the second generation system, and treatments are even more effective, pain-free, require no downtime, and take under an hour from start to finish. Patients relax in one of our Boutique Med-Spa suites while Vanquish ME targets fat and reduces inches.

What is Vanquish ME?

Vanquish ME is the second generation of the VanQuish system and the first non-invasive, non-contact, no pain, no downtime device used to eliminate unwanted fat. Vanquish is FDA-approved for deep tissue heating. Vanquish ME Body Contouring uses high-frequency radiofrequency to gently warm the fat layer of the abdomen, creating heat damage that disrupts unwanted fat cells.

How does Vanquish ME Body Contouring work?

Vanquish uses RF technology – radiofrequency energy in an adjustable panel that hovers over the targeted area of unwanted fat. Radiofrequency energy from the Vanquish device is specially tuned to target fat cells. The energy passes easily through the skin but has a harder time getting through the fat. The energy collection in the fat causes heating of adipocytes (fat cells), leading to thermal damage that causes a natural, controlled form of cell death termed “apoptosis.” The elimination of fat cells leads to a decreased thickness of the fat layer in the area treated with Vanquish.

Who is a good candidate for Vanquish ME?

Healthy adults that have areas of fat (not obese) that are resistent to exercise and diet. The best candidates are already somewhat  physically active and adhere to a healthy diet.

What is radiofrequency?

Radiofrequency is a special form of electricity. Radiofrequency is used extensively in dermatology and cosmetic surgery to target certain layers of the skin to help with skin tightening, collagen regeneration, and now deep tissue heating and fat elimination.

What areas of the body can be treated with Vanquish ME?

Treatment with Vanquish is intended to “Address Your Core” but there is more!  The treatment panel fits over the abdomen plus flanks to reduce the size of the abdomen and love handles (flanks). However, the panel can also be adjusted to treat the back of the waist to eliminate an unwanted muffin top. Vanquish ME uses RF technology to reduce fat cells and the circumference of the abdomen and/or thighs. We can also target bra-fat. The system is contactless and doesn’t require hands-on administration of the treatment after the applicators are positioned over the patient.

What does Vanquish feel like? Does Vanquish hurt?

There is a mild, gentle warming sensation during Vanquish ME sessions  that is similar to having a heating pad placed in the area of treatment. Vanquish ME is not painful, and our skilled estheticians measure the patient’s comfort level during Vanquish treatments.

How do I prepare for Vanquish ME Body Contouring Session?

First, remove all metal jewelry from the treatment area. In the 1-2 days prior to treatment, patients are requested to stay well hydrated. Patients should continue to drink appropriate amounts of water throughout the treatment day and even the day after. Water helps to hydrate the skin. This allows the radiofrequency energy from Vanquish ME to travel easily through the skin and makes the treatments more effective. Patients should avoid dehydrating activities in the couple of days prior to treatment. This would include high-intensity, high-perspiration activities such as extensive aerobics, physical training, or hot yoga. Patients should also avoid excessive alcohol intake prior to Vanquish as this can have a dehydrating effect on the body.

How long is a treatment session? How many treatments will I need?

Vanquish ME sessions last 45 minutes each time and the average patient at Vitalogy Wellness & Med-Spa requires 6 treatments per area treated.  Keep in mind individual results may vary and some patients may require more treatments or wish to undergo additional series of treatments to target additional areas of the body.

What should I expect immediately after Vanquish ME Body Contouring treatment?

The skin in the area of the treatment will be warm to touch as the core fat has reached an approximate temperature of 120 degrees Fahrenheit and the skin approximately 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The skin remains warm and slightly pink for  a few hours following Vanquish ME treatments. Temporary swelling is also possible in the area of treatment and resolves within hours as well.

How long does it take to see results following Vanquish ME?

Based on clinical studies in Europe, patients may report an improvement in their waistline as soon as 2 weeks following the 3rd or 4 treatment with Vanquish ME.

Can I combine Vanquish ME treatments with Cellutone to treat cellulite?

Yes, Dr. Sultan recommends following up with Cellutone treatments to achieve even better results.

Cellutone treatments can help to further disrupt fat cells and reduce cellulite when used immediately following Vanquish Me sessions.

 

Can I combine Vanquish Me treatments with Exilis to tighten skin?

Yes, if loose skin is a concern due to age or weight loss after babies, then Exilis is the perfect treatment to combine with both, Vanquish ME and Cellutone.
