"The goal of our clinic has always been to provide the best in patient care, and Vanquish will allow us to provide satisfying and natural-looking results along with minimal recovery time."
BATON ROUGE, LA (PRWEB) May 24, 2016
May 24, 2016 — The Dermatology Clinic of Baton Rouge is proud to now offer BTL Vanquish ME, a non-invasive fat reduction procedure, to its clients. Approved by the FDA, the procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat and destroy fat cells.
The Vanquish procedure is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia, downtime or medication. It typically generates results within four to six treatments, and many of its patients report a visible change after the third visit.
"We're really proud to be offering this procedure, and we think it makes a great addition to our patient-focused offerings," stated Dr. Whately, one of the clinic's dermatologists. "The goal of our clinic has always been to provide the best in patient care, and Vanquish will allow us to provide satisfying and natural-looking results along with minimal recovery time."
During the 45-minute procedure, the patient lies prone while a computerized panel, large enough to cover the stomach and flanks without touching, is moved into position by a dermatologist or technician. Because fat cells have greater density and hold less water than skin and muscle cells, the panel's circuitry can deliver a precise, calculated amount of radiofrequency energy to deep and unwanted fat tissues while safely and carefully avoiding the layers of surrounding skin.
During the treatment session, patients can nap, read or listen to music while the heat of Vanquish's radiofrequency waves, often compared to the warmth of a heating pad, works to provide noninvasive fat reduction. Afterward, patients can immediately resume the normal routines of their day. Drinking more water before and after treatments is recommended.
Side effects of Vanquish can be superficial inflammation, redness of skin and some tenderness of tissue, all of which usually disappear within an hour of treatment. Vanquish treatment is designed only for the treatment of troublesome fat cells in the abdomen and flanks; it is not used for the reduction of obesity or as an alternative to such surgical procedures as liposuction. As an alternative to CoolSculpting, which involves mild to moderate pain and treats a relatively small area in two separate treatments, Vanquish offers no pain and treats a larger area, though four to six treatments are needed.
Patients undergoing the procedure must be at least 21 years old, and ideal candidates are more than 20 pounds overweight and seek aesthetic shaping of the body's abdomen and flanks without the recovery time and cost of surgery.
