Excellent on time service, Dr. was thorough and explained the appointment and process then answered all my questions. Support staff was very nice too. – PAUL F. H.
In the past, the only options available for getting rid of stubborn fat have been to either have plastic surgery, or liposuction, both of which are surgical, surgical procedures, often performed under general anesthesia, and are not without significant risk and downtime.
Vanquish: Front Abdomen (Female)
Over the past several years, dermatologists around the world have been researching and developing technologies to permanently reduce fat, without the need for surgery and the associated downtime. Radiofrequency is one such technology that has been around for many years, but which only recently has been harnessed to treat fat. The beauty of this type of technology is that it is non-surgical, painless and has no downtime.
Dr. Schmidt spent over 3 years researching and testing the best radiofrequency technologies on the market for non-surgical, permanent fat reduction. Finally, one product, Vanquish™, stood out head and shoulders above its competitors. We have been delighted with the results that we have seen in our patients and are secure in the knowledge that we purchased the best technology on the market for non-surgical fat reduction. The long wait has been well worth it.
The advantages of Vanquish™ over its competitors, like Coolsculpting™, where fat is reduced by sucking fat up into an applicator which then freezes the fat, is that we can treat larger areas of fat in a single session, and quicker, than Coolsculpting™ can. Also, unlike Coolsculpting™, Vanquish™ is not at all painful and is not associated with the numbness and discomfort that so many patients experience for months after having been treated with Coolsculpting™. It is also considerably less expensive than Coolsculpting™.
Vanquish™ is used to reduce love handles, muffin tops, abdominal fat, upper back bra fat, as well as saddle bags and other unwanted fat on the thighs and arms.
We have a second device for treating smaller, more localized areas of fat, called Exilis Elite™, which also uses radiofrequency to achieve the desired result. It has been an excellent addition to the Vanquish™ technology. Thermitight™ is a radiofrequency technology that we use to tighten skin, but it is also able to dissolve small amounts of fat, esp. under the chin. We are fortunate in that we now have multiple different devices for treating fat, which makes us different to many other medical aesthetics practices that only have one type of device for fat reduction.
Also, unlike many other offices, all of our non-surgical fat reduction treatments are either performed by, or are directly supervised by, one of our board-certified dermatologists, board-certified dermatology nurse practitioners, board-certified dermatology PAs, or Master Medical Aestheticians.
As Featured In
1. On what parts of my body can Vanquish™ be used?
Vanquish™ can be used to treat abdominal fat, love handles, muffin tops, upper back bra fat, as well as excess fat on the thighs and arms. For more stubborn areas, we use a similar technology, called Exilis Elite™, which can be used anywhere on the body.
2. Is it painful?
No. Patients describe a “warm” sensation during the treatment. They often describe it as being “like a spa treatment”.
3. Is any type of surgical incision needed?
No. This is a completely non-surgical procedure. In fact, the machine’s applicator does not even touch you. Instead, it is suspended about one inch above your skin at all times. Nothing ever touches you during the entire procedure.
4. Is there any downtime?
No. You can go straight back to work, or to the gym, if you would like.
5. How many treatment sessions are needed and how long is each session?
Depending on the site being treated, as few as two sessions may be all that is needed. At most, you will need 4 sessions.
Each session lasts around 30 minutes.
6. What is the cost?
As there are no expensive consumable costs (like you have with Coolsculpting™), Vanquish™ is one of the most affordable ways to treat fat, and is considerably cheaper than surgery and liposuction.
