The search for effective, painless, noninvasive and permanent fat reduction has just come a step closer to reality with the introduction of the Vanquish device! One of the many Holy Grails sought in the aesthetic industry is a device that meets these exact criteria – a method of fat reduction that is permanent, noninvasive, painless and effective.
Several new technologies attempting to deliver these goals have been introduced recently and include fat freezing such as Coolsculpting, radio frequency devices such as Exilis, ultrasound devices such as Vaser Shape and Liposonix. Although each of these different technologies has shown promise with some of the desired criteria for non-invasive fat reduction, each has also shown associated unique limitations ranging from being painful to not being permanent or overly effective on everyone.
The Vanquish treatment is non-invasive; in fact it does not even touch your skin. It requires 4 sessions spaced a week apart, where you lie underneath an apparatus with adjustable panels positioned around the areas of the body to be treated.
Our Vanquish treatments are now offered in conjunction with the Zimmer Zwave to better your results. Radial Pulse Therapy is used for post procedure massage.
Zimmer Z Wave Radial Pulse Therapy (RPT) is a ballistic radial pulse system with an electromagnetic generator as the projectile accelerator.

How does it work?
Sensors built into the device “read” your body fat and customize the amount of energy the machine will deliver during each 30-minute treatment. During treatment, Vanquish heats your underlying fat to about 120 degrees, while your skin temperature only rises to about 101 degrees. Since this causes the device to kill the fat cells themselves, not just the fat within cells, the fat is permanently destroyed. Clients describe the treatment as comfortable and the heat as “a warm feeling, like a heating pad or standing close to a radiator”. The side effects are minimal and can include a few days of mild redness and swelling.

How well does it work?
In the initial study of 25 patients, ALL had visible results after the first treatment and, after the full course of four sessions, an average of 59 percent of the abdominal fat was destroyed! So far, Vanquish has mainly been used for treatment of the abdomen, love handles and back fat, but other areas are possible (hips, butts, and thighs) depending on the size and shape.
Who are these procedures right for?
The BTL treatments are safe for patients of all ages who are showing signs of aging or want to improve those problem areas where exercise and diet have plateaued. This is also an option for those who are looking for the aesthetic improvement without the cost and recovery time of surgery.
How many treatments do I need?
