Mequon, WI (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
World renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Campbell is pleased to announce the revolutionary new product offering, Vanquish™, a body sculpting technology and body contouring breakthrough. Quintessa Medical Spa, led by Dr. Campbell, is the first in the state and one of 12 in the country to offer this new innovative fat reduction procedure.
Even with healthy eating and exercise habits, many of us still have unwanted fat. Vanquish™ works on those tough to lose areas such as the abdomen, love handles and back fat. Vanquish™ is an FDA approved device that uses selective multipolar radio frequency (RF) technology to eliminate fat cells effectively with permanent results. The procedure is quick, painless and is extremely effective.
How it works
Patients lie underneath adjustable panels that are positioned around the desired treatment areas. The apparatus never touches the skin. Sensors built into the device read a patient’s body fat and customize the amount of energy delivered during the 30 minute treatment. The underlying fat is then heated to 120 degrees while the skin temperature remains a comfortable 101 degrees. At 120 degrees, entire fat cells are killed, not just the fat within the cells, allowing fat to be permanently destroyed. Patients feel a warm sensation as the high temperature initiates fat cell death, also known as apoptosis. According to the manufacturer, BTL, after four, 30 minute weekly sessions, studies have shown a 59% reduction in treated fat. Good hydration, and light physical activity is encouraged after treatment to increase lymphatic drainage and “flush” the fat from the treatment area. Patients may see minor redness of the skin which typically dissipates soon afterwards.
How it differs from other fat removing devices?
Unlike other devices, Vanquish can treat larger areas of the body safely in a shorter period of time without discomfort. Vanquish treats 6 times the area of the current most popular fat reducing device. Patients can return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment. There is no downtime. While fat freezing technologies such as Coolsculpting by Zeltiq have had some success, the device has limitations including longer treatment times per session, longer recovery time and more discomfort. Heat also destroys fat quicker than freezing fat which translates into faster results. Typically, patients who have undergone Vanquish see results in 3-10 days whereas freezing can take up to 8-10 weeks.
