At Aurora OB-GYN in San Antonio, TX, we know that stubborn fat can affect your body image and overall sense of confidence. If you’re looking for a way to tighten and tone some specific areas of your body, we have the perfect treatment: Vanquish ME. This body contouring treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat the fat cells in your problem areas and kill them. Once your body eliminates these cells, they’ll be gone for good, and you’ll look and feel your best.
How Long Do the Results of a Vanquish ME Treatment Last?
Once you undergo a Vanquish ME treatment, expect permanent results. This treatment destroys fat cells that the body then eliminates slowly in the months following your treatment. Once the body eliminates the dead fat cells, they cannot return to the body, nor can your body grow new ones. The best way to maintain permanent results is by living a healthy lifestyle, eating a healthy diet, and getting plenty of activity to ensure that you don’t gain weight post-treatment.
Gaining weight gain post-treatment will affect your results and can cause any existing fat cells in your treatment area to expand, which will negatively impact your appearance.
How To Maintain Long-Term Results
The easiest way to maintain long-term results after your treatment is to eat a healthy diet and exercise consistently. Doing so will help you avoid post-treatment weight gain and enable you to enjoy your new body composition long-term. A diet defined by moderation that incorporates clean, lean, and green foods will help you maintain a healthy body composition post-treatment.
Additionally, getting enough exercise each day can help you not only maintain your results but enhance them. You can continue to reach new goals post-treatment after eliminating those areas with stubborn fat that keep you from looking and feeling your best.
What Is Vanquish ME?
Vanquish ME is a body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat and destroy fat cells in the treatment area. It helps eliminate stubborn fat from problem areas in different body areas to tighten and tone those areas and improve body composition. One of the benefits of this particular body contouring treatment is that those with a BMI higher than 30 can undergo treatment.
Additionally, the entire treatment can be performed without the device ever touching the body. The treatment device uses accuracy and precision to target the fat cells in your problem areas without any invasive techniques.
What Areas Can It Treat?
Vanquish ME treatments can eliminate stubborn fat from some of the most common problem areas of the body. It can reduce the fat volume in the inner and outer thighs, the upper arms, the back, abdomen, love handles, and the area around the bra strap. Additionally, you can choose to treat one or multiple areas during the treatment process, which will enable you to reach your goals twice as fast and target fat in one or more problem areas.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Your treatment will begin with an initial consultation to determine that these treatments are right for you. During your first session, you should arrive wearing comfortable clothing. We recommend that patients drink an adequate amount of water before and after their treatment to ensure the best results. Once you’re situated in the treatment room, your technician will place the device over your planned treatment area.
Never at any point will the device touch your skin, but it will heat the fat cells in the treatment area to 120°F, the temperature that results in cell death. One of the benefits of this treatment is that it does not affect the surrounding tissue or heat the skin, just the fat cells in your problem area. You can expect a pain-free treatment during which you can relax and enjoy the session without any discomfort or pain.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is There Any Downtime?
Once your treatment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities and won’t have to plan around any downtime. Since this treatment doesn’t involve any surgical measures, techniques, or anesthesia, you can go about your day as soon as the session is complete.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
You will not notice any initial changes in your body composition immediately following your treatment, but those changes will come. Patients achieve up to a 59% reduction in the total fat volume in their problem areas post-treatment. If you treat your abdomen or waist, you can expect anywhere from a two to four-inch decrease in your waist measurement.
Expect your clothes to look and fit better because once your results appear, you will be able to enjoy a tighter and more contoured physique. You won’t have to diet or increase the amount of exercise you perform every week post-treatment, but you will be more motivated to maintain your results and achieve new goals once you experience the results of this treatment.
How Long Will It Take To See Results?
Once you undergo this treatment process, you can expect to see results within two to three weeks of your initial treatment. Your results will continue to improve over time as your body flushes the dead fat cells from your system.
One of the benefits of gradual results is that you’ll never at any point look as though you went and had a treatment done. Also, unlike liposuction, you won’t have to plan around downtime or a post-treatment recovery period. This treatment will deliver results, and the trade-off is completely worth it.
The Importance of the Lymphatic System
Your body will utilize your lymphatic system to eliminate these dead fat cells, so you can rest assured that you will achieve results, and your body will perform the necessary functions to help you achieve results. You can help increase the rate at which your body reduces these stubborn fat cells by helping support your lymphatic system.
Drinking plenty of water, adding more movement to your days like walking or other forms of exercise can help stimulate your lymphatic system and increase the rate at which your results appear.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients require a series of treatments to achieve the best results. You can treat multiple areas during one 30 to 45-minute session and, by the end of your treatment plan, lose as much as 59% of the fat volume in your problem areas, so the multiple sessions will be well worth it.
When you come in for your initial consultation, one of our experts will evaluate your problem areas, confirm you are a good candidate and give you a better idea of how many sessions it will take you to achieve your desired results.

Is This a Weight-Loss Treatment?
Vanquish ME is not a weight-loss treatment. It is designed to help fine-tune specific areas of the body and eliminate stubborn fat. Those who need to lose a significant amount of weight will not make good candidates for this treatment because it is not designed to help individuals lose weight.
However, those who want to take their weight loss results to the next level can schedule this treatment to target different areas of the body that have not responded to their diet or fitness routines.
