Don’t believe the hype- trust the science
A recently published JDD study found that BTL Vanquish ME reduces the abdominal fat layer thickness by 5.36 mm (standard deviation +/-1.49mm) on average without manual massage. Compare this result to the 1.93mm reduction (standard deviation +/-1.1mm) for Cryolipolysis and slightly more than 3mm reduction for the 1060 diode laser.
In addition, the study found overall circumference reduction was between 1.93 inches to 2.23 inches depending upon the area of the abdomen treated with the BTL Vanquish ME. Learn more here.
