Vanquish for fat reduction

This non-invasive body contouring treatment uses radiofrequency energy to reduce fat and improve skin laxity. The treatment is designed to target and reduce stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the stomach, hips, thighs and arms. We use a large applicator that delivers radiofrequency energy to a large area of the body, such as the abdomen and sides, in a single session. This can result in a reduction of inches in the treated area.

This device is the second generation of contactless technology for fat cell disruption. The device has the largest treatment area in the industry, ensuring an unrivaled level of patient comfort and safety, without BMI < 30 limitations.

We are the only clinic to date with the this type of device in South Africa. This treatment is suitable for people with significant excess fat and high BMI looking for non-invasive options for fat reduction.

Rarely, patients develop painful lumps in the treatment area due to necrosis (destruction of fat cells) and we postpone the treatment until the lump disappears. Such lumps are not dangerous and do not need any special treatments and resolve on its own with time. We have brilliant results in terms of fat reduction with a combination of our other treatments and will be thrilled to share before and after photos during your consultation.

How does the treatment work?

The radiofrequency energy heats fat cells that either die because of the high temperature (induced apoptosis) or shrink (lipolysis). The dead fat cells are washed out by our lymphatic system. The energy released by lipolysis is burned by our body and organs. The radiofrequency energy also stimulates collagen production, which can help to improve skin laxity and tightness.

    FAQs

    This treatment is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to reduce fat and improve skin laxity. The treatment is designed to target and reduce stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the stomach, hips, thighs and arms. We use a large applicator that delivers radiofrequency energy to a large area of the body, such as the abdomen and love handles, in a single session. This can result in a reduction of inches in the treated area.

    The treatment works by heating the subcutaneous fat tissue, causing the fat cells to break down and be eliminated by the body’s natural processes. The radiofrequency energy also stimulates collagen production, which can help to improve skin laxity and tightness.

    The number of treatments needed can vary depending on the individual’s goals, the size of the treatment area, and the amount of fat to be reduced.

    Typically, a series of four to six treatment sessions are recommended, with each treatment session spaced one to two weeks apart.

    During the treatment, the applicator will be positioned over the treatment area and the radiofrequency energy will be delivered for a period of 30-45 minutes. The number of treatments required will depend on the amount of fat and the size of the area to be treated.

    It’s important to note that while this treatment is a non-invasive treatment and has minimal side effects, it’s not a substitute for diet and exercise. A healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, is essential to maintain the results achieved with the treatment.

    This treatment is a non-invasive treatment and it can be combined with all non-invasive treatments.

    The timing of when the treatment results will start showing can vary depending on the individual, the size of the treatment area, and the amount of fat to be reduced.

    Some people may start to see some initial results soon after the first treatment, but it’s more common to see results after the completion of a series of treatments. Typically, a series of four to six treatments is recommended, with each treatment session spaced one to two weeks apart.

    It’s important to note that the results of the treatment may not be immediately visible. The body will continue to process and eliminate the broken-down fat cells for several weeks after the last treatment. The final result can be seen between 4-8 weeks after the last treatment. It is also important to remember that the results of the treatment will be more visible if the person maintains a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise.

    The results of the treatment can vary from person to person, and the duration of the results can depend on a number of factors, such as the number of treatments received, the individual’s overall health, and their commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

    A 2017 study proved the patients maintain 75% of the original body contouring effect after 4 years as measured by circumference!

    This is a relatively new treatment, and there have been several studies conducted to evaluate its safety and effectiveness.

    A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser therapy in 2013 found that people who received four treatments over a four-week period experienced an average reduction of 2 inches in the waist circumference. The study also reported that there were no significant side effects observed.

    Another study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology in 2014 found that the treatment resulted in a significant reduction of fat in the treated area and an improvement in skin tightening.

    There are more than 10 peer-reviewed studies for this treatment.

    Fat freezing is an effective way to kill fat cells. One should however know that for fat freezing:

    • The results will be seen in 2-3 months after the treatment only
    • Some report the treatment as painful either before the treatment or soon after it
    • 4-6 total sessions are required using different size of the applicators
    • The treatment only works on the tissue that can be sucked between the two freezing panels inside the applicators (that is why pain before the treatment in case of some body areas)
    • There is no skin tightening happening during the treatment and therefore the patients need to book the skin tightening treatment too.
    • Incidence of PAH – paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is small, however the medicine cannot predict to which patient it will occur. Instead of slimming in the treated area, the body creates more fat cells and the client becomes “wider”.

    For this treatment – none of the above conditions apply. The slimming results can be measured after the first session in most cases. The reduction after the first session is 1-2 cm only and the patients may not notice it, but it can be measured. This is due to lipolysis, which is shrinking the volume of the fat cells. The biggest volume reduction happens 2-3 months after the first session due to apoptosis, which is death of fat cells and the time necessary to wash out the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system.

    The patients feel heat during the treatments but it is not intolerable or painful. 4-6 sessions are required too. This treatment covers the abdomen from flank to flank and it also covers all thighs or upper arms for slimming results. It also tightens skin while killing fat cells / shrinking their size.

    Firstly, is non invasive, so doesn’t involve any surgery or incisions. It therefore doesn’t have the costs such as theatre fees, anaesthetist or rehabilitation through physiotherapy.
    It cannot achieve results with the same speed or precision as liposuction but it will not have the pain, side effects, recovery time or any risk of complications.
    2 to 3 weeks after the first treatment, the body starts eliminate fat cells with optimal results after a couple of months
