What does Vanquish feel like? Does Vanquish hurt? Side effects?
There is a mild, gentle warming sensation during treatment that is similar to having a heating pad placed in the area of treatment. Vanquish is not painful, and the patient’s comfort level is monitored throughout Vanquish treatment. After receiving a treatment, you may experience redness, warmth or mild swelling. This can last a few minutes to a few hours after treatment.
Before and After Vanquish Treatment Expectations:
It is important to get adequate hydration to help the body excrete unwanted fat after treatments. We advise that patients refrain from tanning 24 hours before to 24 hours after receiving treatment. We also advise only moderate exercise for 48 hours after treatment, as these activities can lead to dehydration. Patients should also avoid excessive alcohol or caffeine intake prior to and after Vanquish treatments, as this can also cause dehydration.
How long is a treatment session? How many treatments will I need? Cost?
A typical Vanquish treatment session lasts 30 – 45 minutes. Length of session time varies on location of treatment and treatment tolerance by the individual. 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. Optimal results are seen with consecutive sessions completed between 7-10 days of each treatment. Costs vary by the number of Vanquish sessions completed.
When will I see results?
Patients may report an improvement in their waistline as soon as 2 weeks following the last Vanquish treatment. These results vary with each patient. Full results take approximately 6-8 weeks.
How long will the results last?
With the Vanquish treatment fat loss is permanent, the radio frequency used during the treatment causes apoptosis (cell death) of fat cells. As long as weight, hydration and a healthy diet are maintained the loss in inches will be permanent. Any large increase in weight will cause fat stores to re-accumulate, leading to the gain in both inches and fat stores.
