Body contouring in Charlotte with Vanquish ME
Body contouring can be non-invasive and involves no downtime. Vanquish ME is the solution, an FDA-approved procedure for eliminating unwanted fat. It does not touch the skin, does not cause pain, and uses radiofrequency to makes the fat cells die off. It is intended for individuals who are closer to their ideal body weight and it is not a substitute for liposuction, which allows a greater volume of fat removal. Vanquish ME treats a large area at one time, making treatments typically more affordable. with more fat removed compared to other procedures.
Who is the ideal candidate for Vanquish ME?
As we mentioned above, Vanquish ME is are designed for adults who want to decrease the circumference of the abdomen or thighs without resorting to liposuction. Patients may have areas of stubborn fat that is resistant to loss from diet and exercise but are already close to ideal body weight. Women who are pregnant or breast feeding cannot undergo this treatment.
How many treatments and how much downtime?
Each session takes approximately 45-60 minutes. Sessions are performed weekly for 4 weeks. There is no downtime after each session. You can expect the skin in the treated area to remain warm and slightly flushed for several minutes to a couple of hours following Vanquish treatment. Some patients experience temporary swelling, which is a possible and normal reaction. The entire procedure is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. You could even schedule the treatment during your lunch break and return to your daily activities.
What to expect following Vanquish ME treatments
You can expect a noticeable reduction in circumference of your abdomen or thighs, dependent upon a number of factors, particularly, your BMI. Typically, patients experience a loss of roughly 2 inches of fat off their waist circumference and 1-2 inches off their thigh circumference. Many patients report these changes happen as soon as 2 to 3 weeks after the first treatment. By then, their body has naturally eliminated a significant amount of disrupted fat cells. The desired results should be accomplished after a couple of months. The disrupted fat cells are permanently eliminated and will not regenerate. Clinical studies have shown that the accomplished results are maintained many years later. Vanquish ME will help you achieve the fat reduction regardless of your lifestyle.
