Are you looking into a body contouring treatment but are not sure how to get the best results? Vanquish ME is a treatment that provides long-lasting results without difficult plans or programs. Contact Aurora OB-GYN in San Antonio, TX for more information on this treatment. You will no longer need to spend hours in the gym or months dieting with this non-surgical fat elimination method.
What Is Vanquish ME?
Vanquish ME, or Vanquish Maximum Energy, is a body contouring treatment from BTL Aesthetics that removes unwanted fat without any invasive surgery. The treatment uses a harness device that administers radiofrequency energy to eliminate fat cells in the target area. The treatment’s harness device allows your treatment to be completed without touching your skin and allows a greater area of treatment at one time.
The unique treatment method also allows patients with a BMI greater than 30 to be treated with the device. This body contouring treatment is more efficient than other body contouring devices that use similar energy to target fat cells because of the unique harness device. The treatment is also much safer and has less downtime than invasive surgical procedures like liposuction.
What to Expect From Treatment
You will begin your Vanquish ME session with a consultation from Dr. Karen Allsup and our team. When it is determined that the treatment is safe and beneficial for you, we can set an appointment for your first session. The device does not touch the skin and can treat a large area of the body in a single session. Fat cells are heated to 120-degrees Fahrenheit until they are destroyed.
The skin and is not heated to these temperatures, and you will remain comfortable throughout the treatment. You will feel no pain during or after the treatment, and we work to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment process When the treatment session is finished, you are welcome to return to work or your normal routine without interruption.
Getting the Best Results
You can see as much as a 59% reduction in fat from the target area, adding up to a waistline reduction of two to four inches. You may even notice a reduction in your clothing sizes and clothing that was once tight will fit more comfortably. Although you will not need to diet and exercise to achieve the fat reduction results, many patients feel that the confidence and self-image boost from the treatment help them go to the gym more often. Keeping a healthy lifestyle will help the results of the treatment improve and last longer.
You can improve the treatment process by getting some light exercise before and after the treatment. A light meal before the treatment and attention to hydration also aid in the treatment process. You should also stay hydrated before the treatment and after the treatment for the best results.
Parts of the Body That Can Be Treated
Vanquish ME can reduce fat from various parts of the body. The harness system targets fat in the following areas:
- Upper arms
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Bra strap area
One of the greatest features of this treatment is that all the target areas can be treated simultaneously. This cuts down on treatment time and provides life-changing results without invasive surgery. Over several sessions, you will see a fat reduction in all of the treated areas and gain a lean body.
Am I a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Vanquish ME is a body contouring treatment that is not limited to patients with a low BMI, so you can enjoy this treatment at any size. Patients of all skin types, gender, and ages can enjoy the treatment. Ideal candidates are healthy but don’t have to fit a BMI under 30.
The treatment can be an excellent alternative if you are reluctant to undergo surgical fat removal due to the risks and recovery time associated with it. If you choose to undergo this body contouring treatment, you will require minimal recovery and may be able to undergo treatment during a lunch break and return to work immediately after.
How Quickly Is the Fat Eliminated?
Fat elimination from the treatment is not sudden or immediate as with liposuction. The fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and removed from the body naturally. The lymphatic system is mainly responsible for this process but will not affect your daily life. This is an advantage because most people will not notice you have had a body contouring treatment and will assume that you are losing the fat naturally. Your results will be noticeable as soon as two to three weeks after the first treatment session. The results continue to improve in the months following the treatment.
Will I Need More Than One Session?
You will need more than one session to reach your desired goal in most cases. Each treatment is tailored to meet your needs, with most patients requiring about four sessions to reach their goal. The treatment can eliminate as much as 59% of body fat from the treatment area. Each session takes 30 to 45 minutes, taking less time to treat a small section of the body and more time to treat a larger section of the body.
How Long Do the Treatment Results Last?
The fat cells in the treated area are eliminated from the body permanently. The cells will not regenerate, so the treatment results are virtually permanent. You will see fat growth only in certain rare circumstances after being treated. If you live a healthy lifestyle after the treatment, your results will last much longer.
How Are Treatment Sessions Faster Than Other Body Contouring Methods?
Treatment with Vanquish ME can be faster than many other body contouring treatments. The treatment uses a harness device rather than a handheld device to eliminate fat. This allows the device to target a variety of areas of the body simultaneously. Handheld devices may take over an hour to treat the same amount of area the harness device can treat in 45 minutes. If you are looking to remove fat from a variety of body parts, this treatment is very efficient.
Can the Treatment Provide Weight Loss Benefits?
Vanquish ME is not meant to be a weight loss solution. The treatment can be used to address one symptom of obesity and can be used on patients with a higher BMI, but it is not designed to treat obesity. The treatment removes fat, but since fat does not make up a substantial amount of total body weight, the treatment will not result in significant weight loss. With this treatment, you will enjoy a thinner body and share many of the advantages that come from a weight loss plan.
What Happens if I Gain Weight After Treatment?
If you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment, you may gain weight and see fat growth in untreated areas of the body. Treated areas of the body have a reduced concentration of fat cells, and these fat cells will not regenerate under normal circumstances. Fat growth in the treated areas will not show in comparison to untreated areas, so even if you experience weight gain, you will not see notable growth in fat.
Is the Treatment Safe?
Patients note that the treatment feels like a heating pad being placed on the treatment area and is not painful or uncomfortable. Fat is heated to as much as 120 degrees Fahrenheit to destroy the cells, but the tissue and skin surrounding the fat are only heated to a comfortable 101 degrees Fahrenheit. During the treatment, you will not be burned or experience any scarring on your skin.
The treatment is an FDA-cleared fat elimination method. It provides safe elimination of fat without any recovery or downtime. The treatment requires no invasive surgery or anesthetic and is completed in our San Antonio location. You will not be asked to stay overnight or require hospitalization after the treatment.
What Should I Do After the Treatment?
After the treatment session, you are free to return to work, go about your daily routine, and work out. You should always remember to keep hydrated after the treatment to avoid dehydration just as you did before the session. It is recommended to drink ten eight-ounce glasses of water each day and after a treatment session.
How Much Will the Treatment Cost?
The treatment can range in cost based on the number of sessions needed and your particular needs since the treatment is tailored to your goals. For information on our rates, contact Aurora OB-GYN and we will be able to provide an accurate price range. The treatment is not covered by most health insurance providers because it is a voluntary cosmetic treatment. You should call your health insurance provider for more information regarding your benefits and what treatments are covered.
How Does This Treatment Compare to Other Body Contouring Treatments?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that requires an incision and drainage of the fat. You will spend some time recovering in a hospital or facility after the procedure and cannot immediately return to work. The results of the procedure can be dramatic and sudden, and liposuction is excellent for removing larger amounts of fat. Vanquish can provide natural-looking and effective fat removal results of up to 59%. You can also return to work immediately with no downtime or recovery time needed.
CoolSculpting is a popular body contouring treatment that freezes away fat. CoolSculpting is administered by a doctor or specialist using a handheld device that makes contact with the skin. This means that the device can only treat a single section of the body at a time. Vanquish can treat large areas of the body without touching the skin and without prolonging treatment time. It is also more suitable than CoolSculpting for people with a higher BMI.
EMSCULPT is a technology developed by BTL Aesthetics. The treatment is non-invasive but requires a harness-like device attached to the abdominal area that touches the skin. The device stimulates muscles in the abdominal area to contract much like they would during a crunch. The muscles may contract 20,000 times in a single 30-minute session, making a session like hours of intense workouts. EMSCULPT is not permanent and you will be required to undergo maintenance sessions for prolonged results. Vanquish is virtually permanent, and the harness will not make contact with the skin.
Who Should Not Seek Treatment?
Dr. Karen Allsup and our team will ensure that you are ready for the treatment and it is safe to proceed. The treatment may not be recommended to you if you are pregnant or nursing. If you have metal implants, you should avoid this treatment.
