Body sculpting is often seen as something done with diet and exercise. However, some patients may still experience excess fat in areas that will not improve despite their best efforts. This is when patients come to Pierre Skin Care Institute to ask about treatment options. While plastic surgery is the best known treatment for excess fat, particularly liposuction and tummy tucks, many patients want to avoid going “under the knife” and dealing with the recovery and scarring that occurs with surgery. Instead, patients are seeking non-surgical body contouring options with no downtime such as Vanquish ME, a non-invasive yet effective treatment to remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body.

If you’re seeking circumferential reduction or treatment of larger areas of the body, you will love Vanquish ME. This is the first non-invasive, no pain, no contact, no downtime device used to eliminate unwanted fat of the abdomen, flanks, upper back, arms, thighs and bra line. Vanquish ME uses thermal energy to gently warm the fat layer and kill unwanted fat cells while protecting the skin and muscles. There is a mild, gentle warming sensation during treatment similar to that of a heating pad.
Treatment with Vanquish ME is intended to “Conquer Your Core” – the treatment panel fits over the abdomen and flanks, but never touches the skin, to reduce the size of the tummy and love handles (flanks). However, the panel can also be adjusted to treat the back of the waist to eliminate an unwanted muffin top. Different panels are used to treat the arms and the thighs. Treatment sessions are 45 minutes and a series of four weekly sessions is recommended. You can expect to lose several inches from the treated area with noticeable results seen within a few treatments and maximum results two months after the last session. Individual results may vary and some patients may require more treatments or wish to undergo an additional series of treatments to target additional areas of the body.
Vanquish ME is intended for individuals close to their ideal body weight that struggle with stubborn areas of fat deposition, resistant to dietary and exercise measures. It is not a substitute for liposuction, which allows a greater volume of fat removal, and it isn’t for weight loss. However, for some patients that are not candidates for surgery or who do not wish to undergo surgery, Vanquish ME may be a good treatment option. It destroys fat cells so as long as weight and diet are maintained, the results following treatment are likely to be permanent. The fat cells are naturally flushed out of the body over the course of time allowing gradual and natural-looking results. Patients love that they can change the look of their body without it looking obvious that they’ve had work done.
