What is Vanquish Me?

Vanquish ME (Maximum Energy)  is a FDA approved, non-invasive fat removal system that reduces fat cells on the abdomen, back and thighs. Vanquish ME's patented radiofrequency (RF) technology promotes death and shrinkage of fat cells via apoptosis without damaging surrounding tissues such as skin and muscle. Once the fat cells have been compromised, your body flushes out the lipids via your lymphatic system.

Vanquish ME can be used to target stubborn, exercise-resistant fat around the waist, abdomen, thighs, and back. As an added benefit, the heat created by the Vanquish process encourages natural collagen production for mild skin tightening effects. At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology in San Francisco, the skilled team of body contouring specialists perform customized Vanquish treatments to minimize patient discomfort and increase patient results. Patients have reported visible improvements after their second Vanquish session but it is common to see gradual, continued improvements over the six months following treatment. Most people will need to complete a series of Vanquish, administered seven to fourteen days apart, to maximize treatment efficacy. As with all of our treatments, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen and drinking plenty of water will help enhance lasting results. 

AM I A CANDIDATE?

People of all ages and skin types who want to improve areas where diet and exercise have plateaued can treat with Vanquish. However, if you are pregnant, have any metal implants or a pacemaker we cannot treat with this particular technology. Our Body Sculpting Specialists are experts and helping you to determine which fat reducing treatment is right for you and your goals.

What should I Expect

  • As with all of our body services, during a Vanquish treatment one of our Body Sculpting specialists will lead you to a private treatment room, provide you with a robe if desired, and make you comfortable.
  • You will recline in the treatment chair and your specialist will arrange the Vanquish handpiece several inches above the area to be treated. They will then turn on the Vanquish device, at which time you will feel an increase in heat. We will leave you to relax; many patients use the hour to read or nap.
  • Periodically, your specialist will check on you to ensure you are comfortable; if you are experiencing any hot spots, they will simply adjust the Vanquish to minimize discomfort.
  • Your body specialist will wrap up your procedure with a quick, three-minute ZWave Pro session at no additional cost. We are the only office in the Bay Area using this combination and our patients have loved their results!

There is no pain associated with the Vanquish treatment, only a sensation of heat. Patients find the sessions relaxing and pleasant. (“Vanquish naps” are a staff favorite!) 

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

HOW MANY TREATMENTS NEEDED?

How to prepare?
