In an effort to meeting the growing demand for non-surgical fat removal in Orange County, CA., the BioSpa offers an array of contouring treatment options, including the Vanquish system. Vanquish is an FDA-approved non-invasive body contouring, skin tightening, and fat reduction treatment requiring no surgery or downtime. The treatment is ideal for targeting areas resistant to diet and exercise. Vanquish sculpts and reduces volume by effectively destroys stubborn fat in the upper and lower abdomen, love handles, back, saddle bags, inner thighs, and upper arms.
Any man or woman wanting to non-surgically get rid of stubborn fat, tighten skin and improve body contour can benefit from treatment with Vanquish. Individuals must be 21 years of age or older and within 20 pounds of their ideal body weight. Patients should also be able to maintain their healthy weight, as future weight gain can affect their results. Many patients choose Vanquish for their hard-to-tone areas like under the chin, above the knee, and in the bra area.
Vanquish is not an option for removing large amounts of fat. It is only a good alternative to liposuction when the areas are smaller in size. Those who are pregnant or nursing are not candidates for treatment with Vanquish. The treatment is also not recommended for those with a pacemaker or cardio convertor. Vanquish should also not be used over implants.
Vanquish uses controlled radio frequency waves to destroy fat cells without harming the muscle or skin. The fat cells are then filtered through the body and excreted through the natural elimination process. Vanquish can destroy up to 60% of the fat cells in the targeted area while also improving skin laxity and body shape. It is virtually painless and requires no downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately following treatment.
Like any treatment at BioSpa, your vanquish treatment will be customized based on your concerns. It is important to stay well-hydrated prior to a Vanquish treatment. This enables the RF energy to penetrate more easily through the skin and reach the targeted fat layer. The BioSpa recommends drinking a minimum of eight glasses of water beginning a minimum of three days prior to treatment. Avoid dehydrating activities for two to three days prior to treatment, such as aerobics, hot yoga, boxing, cross fit, etc. It is also recommended to avoid drinking alcohol due to the dehydrating effect it can have on the body.
Upon arrival at the BioSpa, you will be escorted to our Vanquish treatment room. Measurements will be taken of the area/s being treated. This baseline will allow us to determine the total circumference lost after the final treatment. The Vanquish device is then placed over the area being treated and the RF waves will begin working. A warm sensation may be felt during the treatment. Some patients say it feels like a large heating pad. Approximate treatment time is 45 minutes per area.
A typical treatment plant consists of a series of six treatments spaced one week apart. This may be modified by our BioSpa nurses depending on the areas being treated, amount of fat, and the desired result. The treatment plan must be followed to ensure optimal results.
After the Vanquish session is finished, there may be temporary redness, puffiness, or tenderness. Although patients will be able to resume regular activities right away, they should also follow these post-treatment tips to enhance fat cell elimination:
- Stay hydrated with at least 8 glasses of water a day.
- Establish a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
- Perform light exercise during the first few days.
Results will not be seen immediately after treatment with Vanquish. The entire series of treatments must be completed first and it takes time for the body to expel dead fat cells. The final result may include a noticeable reduction in fat, improved body contour, and skin tightening. The fat cells destroyed with the Vanquish treatment will not regenerate, but remaining cells can expand with poor diet and lack of exercise. The BioSpa strongly encourages patients to make a long-term commitment to living a healthy lifestyle consisting of proper diet and exercise.
There are plenty of nonsurgical body contouring options on the market including VelaShape III, UltraShape, and ThermiSmooth®. The experts at BioSpa will meet with you to make sure you’re choosing the best options for your concerns and goals.
