BTL Vanquish Me™
What is BTL Vanquish Me?
Vanquish ME, or Vanquish Maximum Energy eliminates 1 to 4 inches of unwanted fat from your waist, thighs, abdomen, and flanks. Designed by BTL Aesthetics, Vanquish ME is a new, non-surgical, fat reduction treatment that can eradicate belly fat and reduce the circumference of thighs without the need for surgery or dangerous drugs.
How Does BTL Vanquish Me™ Work?
BTL Vanquish Me™ uses the energy of radio waves to bypass the skin and treat underlying fat. The treated area is subjected to a high-frequency electric field that damages fatty tissue, allowing it to be absorbed and eliminated naturally by the body.
The Vanquish spot size is the largest in the industry and covers the entire abdomen from flank to flank. The treatment panel floats just above the skin, causing an intense warming of the area. Most patients find it to be pleasant and relaxing. Sessions are performed one week apart for 4-6 weeks.
BTL Vanquish ME Side Effects
BTL Vanquish ME is safe and causes very few, if any, side effects for most patients. Any side effects that do develop are typically mild and disappear within hours. Short-term redness and a warm sensation in the treated area are the most common side effects. If BTL Vanquish is positioned too close to a bony area of the body, a “hot spot” may develop. Skincare professionals avoid this side effect by repositioning the Vanquish panel.
BTL Vanquish ME Vs CoolSculpting
BTL Vanquish Me and CoolSculpting are similar in that they both permanently remove unwanted fat, but the two innovative procedures work in entirely different ways.
BTL Vanquish ME uses radiofrequency technology to heat up the fat tissue heat to the point where the fat cells die gradually, in a process known as apoptosis. CoolSculpting cools the fat to cause apoptosis. Both trigger continuous fat loss for 6 to 8 weeks after the initial treatment.
There are other differences too. CoolSculpting requires the treatment area has enough pinchable fat to be suctioned into the handpiece; patients that have fat that cannot be drawn into the handpiece cannot undergo CoolSculpting on that part of their body.
All patients may undergo Vanquish ME, including severely obese patients who may not be good candidates for CoolSculpting. Vanquish ME fat reduction can also treat fit patients who are very fit, but who have just a small bit of fat that does not go away with diet and exercise, and is not in a good place for treatment with a CoolSculpting handpiece. What’s more, Vanquish ME treatment can remove fat from a larger area than can CoolSculpting.
How Many BTL Vanquish Me™ Treatments Are Needed For Best Results
Many report visible improvements after the second session, but it is common for changes to continue over a period of several months. Adequate hydration, mild to moderate exercise, and a healthy diet all work to maximize results.
Is BTL Vanquish Me™ Safe?
The treatment is FDA approved and completely safe.
