Nonsurgical Fat Removal with Vanquish
Vanquish is a state-of-the-art contouring device that permanently removes fat non-surgically. Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to heat and kill fat cells without injuring muscles and skin. The applicators never touch the skin, unlike CoolSculpting. And, they are large so the tummy and love handles can be treated at the same time. Vanquish can also treat inner and outer thigh fat, back fat, and bra bulge fat too, providing newly defined contours and improved body confidence. Best of all, because Vanquish uses heat, this device helps tone and tighten the skin in addition to destroying stubborn fatty deposits.
There are virtually no side effects with Vanquish treatments, and you can get back to your life right away. The actual procedure feels like lying under a warm lamp, and there is negligible pain, so surgery, scars or downtime. Although Vanquish is not a substitute for liposuction, it is perfect for those who are active and hope to fit better in their clothes.
- 4-6 weekly Vanquish sessions can yield up to 59% fat reduction in the treated area, vs. CoolSculpting that offers only 20-22% reduction.
- CoolSculpting can only treat discreet deposits of stubborn fat in someone who is at optimal weight, while Vanquish can treat people with larger fat volumes, and reduce waist circumference by up to 4 pant sizes.
- Time to optimal results – Vanquish 2 months, CoolSculpting 3-4 months.
- Pain from treatment- Vanquish – none, CoolSculpting is associated with moderate discomfort that can last up to 2 weeks.
- Flat stomach flank to flank- Vanquish, CoolSculpting flat tummy bulge only.
Surgical Body Contouring with Liposuction
If you’re looking to reduce more fat, minimally invasive liposuction is a safe and very successful procedure that is popular because it works. It requires some downtime compared to noninvasive Vanquish but provides more dramatic results. Liposuction is a good option to reduce large deposits of excess fat. While you may receive medication for comfort, you will be awake during the procedure. Here at NY Medical Skin SolutionsFacial Plastics & Dermatology, we use tumescent anesthesia which numbs the treatment areas, facilitates fat removal and reduces bleeding. A cannula used to draw out the fat is inserted into tiny incisions placed strategically in natural body folds.
Everyone heals differently, but generally patients can return to work in just a few days, wearing a compression garment. Results become visible by three months, and full results will take a year.
Pollogen Skin Tightening
If your skin is less elastic due to aging, genetics, pregnancy, weight fluctuations and lifestyle, we also offer treatments to help tighten skin. These are ideal when combined with Vanquish or Liposuction fat reduction because they keep you looking tight. Nothing is worse that sagging skin after fat removal! Pollogenâ is one such skin tightening options that targets loose skin, increases collagen productions and restores elasticity. Pollogen uses radiofrequency waves and the skin is treated directly with a warm probe. Typically a series of 5-7 treatments is ideal for maximal tightening. Pollogen treatments are noninvasive and painless with no downtime!
