Vanquish Laser in Manhattan

Vanquish Laser is a brand new radiofrequency device for non-invasive, non-surgical fat reduction. Recently previewed at the American Academy of Dermatology conference in Miami, it has recently become available in the U.S. (September 2013). At this time, the use of Vanquish radiofrequency technology for fat reduction is an FDA off-label use, but radiofrequency has been used safely and effectively for decades in the medical community.

Vanquish differs from other fat removal technologies in several major ways. First, the Vanquish device uses radiofrequency energy for deep-tissue heating to target fat and cause lipolysis, as other devices do, but the Vanquish device is made up of adjustable panels that do not actually touch the patient’s skin. The device’s sensors can detect the fat levels of each patient and customize the amount of energy delivered within the treatment. Once the fat is heated and liquefied, the body will flush these dead fat cells out naturally without the need for surgical extraction. Second, the device is large enough to be used on much more expansive treatment areas than previously; the entire core area and even circumferential reduction can be done in one procedure of about 30 minutes.

Vanquish is a non-surgical method that is painless, and thus does not require anesthesia. Patients report a warming sensation, and may sweat during the procedure, but that is usually the extent of their discomfort. Vanquish also does not require downtime for recovery, and though patients may experience mild side effects such as redness and in rare cases, a burn or blister, patients typically return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.

Results after a Vanquish procedure may develop within several weeks after treatment, but patients vary in their timelines. For full treatment and maximal results, a treatment course of about four to six procedures is recommended, with about a week in between each office visit. Because Vanquish kills fat cells, results are permanent as long as the patient maintains their weight with a healthy diet and exercise regimen. In the limited amount of data available, patients have had an average of a two inch reduction in their waist size.

Our doctor currently does not offer the Vanquish Laser treatment. Our doctor and his team are committed to keeping up with the latest advances in cosmetic and dermatologic technology, as well as to being able to offer the best solutions for their patients. Our doctor will evaluate its effectiveness and test its claims of fat reduction by analyzing more data before he decides if this is a procedure that he would like to offer his patients. Our Manhattan office does offer an extensive range of fat removal and body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting and Vaser LipoSelection. Our doctor will be happy to discuss an alternative, proven effective solution with you.
