Vanquish is a new FDA-approved fat reduction technique that uses body contouring principles to get rid of abdominal fat, specifically. We offer this exciting treatment at Renew You MD; contact us today to schedule a consultation!
The abdomen is a trouble spot for men and women alike, and often is the site of unwanted, stubborn fat that just won’t move through normal means like diet and exercise. Carrying excess fat around your abdomen, as well as being unsightly, also can be a health concern. Vanquish offers a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that eliminates and destroys belly fat with a short, 45-minute treatment with no downtime following.
It appeals to those seeking an all-over abdominal fat treatment rather than a spot treatment such as more targeted body sculpting procedures. It is available at both our Houston and Lake Jackson offices, and Dr. Yarish and our trained medical staff are on hand for consultation to help you determine whether this would be the right treatment to achieve your goals.
When To Consider It
Both men and women in good overall health, but who have unwanted excess abdominal fat, can benefit from Vanquish fat reduction. It’s not designed for allover weight loss, however, or for patients who need to achieve a great deal of weight loss. Vanquish uses natural metabolic processes to shed the fat over time after treatment. It’s great for busy patients, as you can have the procedure done in less than an hour and return to work or normal activity. Dr. Yarish cautions, though, that this is not a weight loss or obesity treatment, but a body contouring procedure to remove targeted fat.
What To Expect
Vanquish consists of a painless process using radiofrequency, or RF, energy, to heat fat cells across the abdomen using a wide belt-like applicator that does not come into contact with the skin. The heating process is homogenous across the midsection, rather than targeted to specific spots. It reduces the size of the abdomen from hip to hip with focused RF waves, which heat and kill fat cells without any invasive or chemical means. The surrounding muscles, tissues and skin are not affected or damaged during the procedure. Patients report the experience as being similar to a hot stone massage.
What Happens Afterward
Typically, Dr. Yarish and his staff will recommend a series of Vanquish treatments for best results, commonly in four to six treatments. No downtime or side effects are expected afterward, as the fat loss will happen over time as your body disposes naturally of the heat-damaged fat cells. Patients can expect to see natural-looking results across their abdomen and midsection over the course of the series of short treatment sessions.
