Targeting stubborn fat areas
Cosmetic dermatology leads the way when it comes to non-invasive and pain free ways to remove unwanted and stubborn areas of fat from the body. There is no disputing that a proper diet and regular exercise is the best option for your body.

Vanquish works by heating fat cells by using radio frequency. This allows the clinician to target fat without injuring other tissues.

Fat reduction with thighs is a separate treatment location and appointment.
