The BTL Vanquish builds on the success of the original BTL Vanquish non-invasive technology to reduce stubborn fat pockets around the midsection. Like its predecessor, BTL Vanquish device creates a high-frequency energy field that precisely targets the thermal effects into the fat layer while protecting surrounding skin tissue. In this way, it destroys unwanted fat cells over the course of four to six treatment session.
In our clinical experience, BTL Vanquish is an excellent non-surgical option for patients with stubborn fat pockets that accumulate around the midsection — what patients refer to as a muffin top, bulging waistline or love handles. One of the key benefits of the device is its large spot size, allowing us to produce improvements over entire body areas in one treatment session.
In general, a healthy adult who is looking for a noninvasive treatment solution to reduce unwanted fat without the downtime and expense of surgery is a good candidate for BTL Vanquish. Women and men who are no more than about 20 pounds overweight and carrying extra weight or have irregular contours in the abdomen area can expect positive results. We also find that BTL Vanquish especially appeals to women who are getting ready for a beach vacation, a major event or special occasion and, despite diet and working out, want to whittle the waistline and smooth the body contours around their midsection. The same applies to men who have flab around their abs that they can’t seem to shed.
Unlike tummy tucks, there is no surgery, anesthesia or recovery. Plus BTL Vanquish allows the doctor to precisely shape the body area as it gradually reduces the fat layer. Other non-invasive systems use a point source of energy that damages only a small spot size of unwanted fat cells either by freezing or heating. In most cases, these other fat reduction technologies require that the applicator clamps onto the body or is placed and moved against the skin for close to an hour — which can be cumbersome and uncomfortable.
With BTL Vanquish METM, the device hovers over the treatment area in a panel array of energy that does not come into direct contact with the skin. Industry’s largest spot size treats high volumes of fat at the same time. Fat layer reduction from flank to flank, overall the whole abdomen, leads to significantly higher circumferential reduction than just localized and time consuming treatment of pockets of fat. Therefore, few, if any, side effects occur, and large swaths of body fat can be treated at a time, providing a cost-effective solution. Invasive procedures, such as tummy tucks or tumescent liposuction, are associated with varying degrees of discomfort, side effects and downtime.
A treatment plan includes 4-6 sessions depending on the amount of fat that needs to be reduced. These sessions are one week apart and last about 45 minutes. We offer a complimentary consult with one of our doctors to provide a personalized treatment plan.
There is no preparation needed before the treatment. The only important part is to be hydrated before you come in. Hydration is the key to getting rid of fat.
This treatment requires no downtime and you would be able to return to your daily activities. Patients notice a difference after their second to third treatment. A typical change in waist after the complete treatment is between 1-3 inches.
There are a number of benefits of the BTL Vanquish. Most notable is the fact that treatment is virtually pain-free and easy, with many patients reporting that the experience was relaxing and felt like a hot stone massage technique. It’s affordable for most of our patients, and results are consistent and long lasting. Patients and our office staff tells us they look better and feel better with a trim, attractive appearance – it’s very satisfying to see them return with a spring in their step.
