Are you looking for a solution to remove stubborn pockets of unwanted fat from your body? Body contouring is an excellent way to remove fat without excessive diet and exercise. There are a variety of treatments that can help you reach your goal. At Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, LA, we offer Vanquish ME as the best solution.
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring, or body sculpting, is a treatment that removes fat and reshapes the body to improve the aesthetic. The treatments are usually carried out by non-surgical methods, but some patients choose to undergo liposuction or surgery, like a tummy tuck. At Allure Enhancement Center, we focus on non-invasive and non-surgical treatments because of the minimized risk and simple recovery time involved with the treatments. In non-surgical body sculpting, the fat is heated and eliminated through a source of energy, like radiofrequency, lasers, or electromagnetic waves, with no incisions necessary.
Body Contouring with Vanquish ME
Vanquish ME is a body sculpting treatment developed by BTL that melts away unwanted fat with radiofrequency energy. Patients with stubborn fat that is difficult to remove through diet and exercise alone can experience relief with Vanquish ME. The treatment is unique among other body sculpting treatments because patients with a BMI over 30 can still be treated. Vanquish ME’s harness can also be used to treat a larger target area than most handheld treatments and will not touch the patient’s skin.
Vanquish ME can treat a large portion of the body simultaneously. The harness focuses on the patient’s waist and can treat the lower back, bra strap area, thighs, abdomen, and flanks to eliminate fat from many parts of the body at the same time. This can reduce treatment time for patients wishing to treat a large section of their body when compared to handheld treatment devices.
What Results Can I Expect?
Vanquish ME can provide body contouring results with a fat reduction of up to 59% in the target area. Patients can lose two to four inches of fat from the waistline. This can help clothing fit more comfortably and allow patients to reduce their pants or dress size. Patients will have an improved self-image and confidence. The treatment is effective without diet or exercise, but patients can improve their results by practicing healthy habits.
What Happens to the Destroyed Fat?
The fat cells are destroyed by the radiofrequency energy of Vanquish ME and will not regenerate. Destroyed fat cells are removed from the body as waste in the weeks following a treatment session. The lymphatic system naturally removes destroyed fat cells, and this process should not impair a patient’s daily life.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
Vanquish ME is the perfect way to eliminate fat from the midsection of healthy patients. Men and women of every age and skin tone can enjoy fat elimination treatment. Vanquish ME is exceptional for patients who have lost a good deal of weight and still have stubborn deposits of fat. Since the treatment time is quick and there is minimal downtime, patients with busy schedules can enjoy treatment during their lunch break and return to work immediately after the session. Patients who want to avoid the risks of surgery or liposuction see non-surgical body sculpting as a good alternative.
Is Vanquish ME a Good Liposuction Alternative?
A liposuction procedure is a powerful option for removing large amounts of fat from many areas of the body. Vanquish ME can remove large amounts of fat from the body without several days of downtime and the risks involved in liposuction. Liposuction patients will have to go through an invasive procedure and require an overnight stay for inpatient care. Unlike many non-surgical body sculpting options, even patients with a BMI over 30 can benefit from Vanquish ME. This means patients who may have needed liposuction in the past can be treated with Vanquish ME instead.
How Does Vanquish ME Compare to Other Body Contouring Options?
CoolSculpting provides fat elimination of up to 25% using a handheld device. The treatment can take as little as 35 minutes but can take longer depending on the size of the area. Vanquish ME can eliminate up to 59% of fat and can target multiple treatment areas simultaneously. CoolSculpting generally takes one or two sessions, but the final results may take up to six months to appear. Vanquish ME may take four sessions on average, but patients reach their goal only two weeks after their final session. Some patients may not receive CoolSculpting because of a condition that causes sensitivity to cold.
EMSCULPT uses a harness device that is strapped to the abdomen to stimulate muscle contractions. The device can stimulate 20,000 contractions in a single 30-minute session, providing patients with the results of hours spent doing crunches in a single session. The treatment can leave the muscles feeling tender as if the patient just went through an intense workout session and provides a fat reduction rate of up to 19%. Vanquish ME can provide a fat reduction of up to 59% and does not touch the skin. The treatment is painless and will not cause tenderness.
SculpSure is a harness device that performs laser fat removal for patients. Most patients report a warming sensation or tingling sensation, and the device will not scar or harm the skin. SculpSure sessions take at least 25 minutes to complete and may take longer depending on the size of the treatment area. One session can remove up to 24% of fat, but most patients will require more than one session. Treatment results can be long-lasting and no downtime is involved. Vanquish VM provides greater fat removal results for as much as 59% fat reduction, and the entire treatment area can be treated simultaneously.
Kybella is for the elimination of submental fullness. This is fat that is deposited under the chin and jawline to form “double chin”. Vanquish ME and Kybella have very different functions and can be used in combination to help patients lose fat from their midsection and submental fat. Kybella is an injectable treatment that uses a naturally occurring acid to stimulate the metabolism of submental fat. The treatment can be performed quickly and takes only four to six weeks for patients to see results.
Synergie is a massage treatment known as an Aesthetic Massage Device that addresses cellulite in a non-invasive and non-surgical way. The system removes excess liquid that causes cellulite to form. Synergie uses a device that combines massage and vacuum suction to stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage. The treatment can help patients contour their bodies and lose over one inch from their waist in 8 to 16 sessions twice per week. Vanquish ME can provide more substantial fat reduction, helping patients lose two to four inches of fat. Vanquish ME also requires no contact with the skin and can treat a large area of the body at one time.
Preparing for Vanquish ME
Patients will go through an initial consultation before Vanquish ME or any other body sculpting treatments to ensure that the treatment will be beneficial. Patients are advised to eat a light meal on the day of their session and stay well-hydrated for several days before Vanquish ME. Patients should drink at least the recommended ten 8-ounce glasses of water per day and avoid activities that may cause dehydration. Alcohol consumption should also be limited before the treatment session.
Recovering from Vanquish ME
Patients experience no downtime or recovery time after Vanquish ME. Many patients return to their normal routine or work without interruption. The treated area may be pink or red for a few hours after treatment due to the heat. Patients should continue to stay hydrated in the days following treatment, but there is no need for any changes that impact daily life.
When Will I See Results?
A single Vanquish ME session takes around 30 minutes to complete and can treat a large portion of a patient’s body. The eliminated fat is removed from the body naturally, and the patient will see improvements over two weeks. Patients will need multiple sessions to reach their desired results, with most patients needing about four sessions. Each session is spaced one week apart and patients will see their final results two weeks after their final treatment session.
Is Vanquish ME Permanent?
Fat removal from Vanquish ME can be long-lasting. The treatment reduces fat by as much as 59% in the target area. The fat that has been destroyed is removed from the body as waste and will not come back, but fat can grow in untreated areas. Patients who live a healthy lifestyle can experience long-lasting results, as only the areas of the body that are not treated can continue to store fat.
Gaining Weight After Vanquish ME
After body sculpting with Vanquish ME, patients will not generally need touch-up or maintenance sessions. Patients who gain weight after the treatment will experience less fat growth in the treated area, but other areas of the body can still become fat. It is recommended that patients continue a healthy lifestyle after treatment to prolong the treatment results. Additional treatments may be used to target untreated areas.
How Safe is Vanquish ME?
Vanquish ME has been FDA approved for the safe removal of fat. The harness used in treatment will not touch the patient’s skin, and there is no surgery or invasive procedure involved. Patients will not be required to be under anesthesia or stay overnight. Most patients experience only minor redness after treatment and can return to their daily life with no downtime. Vanquish ME heats fat cells as much as 120 degrees Fahrenheit, but it only heats the skin and surrounding tissue to a more comfortable 101 degrees. Patients will not experience scarring or damage to their skin.
Who is Body Contouring Not Meant for?
Vanquish ME eliminates fat but is not meant for significant weight loss. The treatment is not recommended for women who are nursing or pregnant and is not recommended for patients with metal implants.
Is Vanquish ME Expensive?
Vanquish ME can range in price based on the number of sessions needed to complete the treatment. For price information, contact Allure Enhancement Center. Body sculpting is not covered by most health insurance plans because it is a voluntary cosmetic treatment. Patients can find more information about their plan benefits by contacting their health insurance provider.
