Manhattan plastic surgeon, Dr. Sherrell J. Aston, offers a new approach to noninvasive fat reduction. VanquishME is a radiofrequency (RF) fat reduction device that uses heat to permanently destroy fat cells in targeted areas of the abdomen, love handles, flanks, and thighs. Patients can enjoy a slimmer, trimmer figure in just a few weeks with VanquishME, without any anesthesia, pain, or downtime. VanquishME is a noninvasive device that reduces fat in patients who either do not want to have a surgical procedure or have a small area of excess fat where surgery is not indicated. The subcutaneous fat cells are heated without damaging the skins or deeper structures and the destroyed cells are absorbed by the body over a few weeks time. This totally painless procedure is safe and effective with patients feeling warm but not overheated during a treatment. A VanquishMe series consists of six weekly treatments with full results. Patients state that their clothes fit better, they feel smaller, and that it is easy and effortless. The results from radiofrequency fat reduction are not as dramatic as a surgical liposuction procedure.
How Does Vanquish Work?
Vanquish is performed during an in-office appointment. The non contact applicator is placed over the areas where fat removal is desired and the device sends radiofrequency energy to the fat cells. This thermal heat disrupts the cells, damaging them and allowing them to be naturally eliminated through the body's lymphatic system. Patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment. It does take several weeks for patients to begin to notice a slimmer appearance as the melted fat cells make their way out of the body.
"Dr. Aston and his entire office staff were extremely attentive and made me feel at ease each and every time I went in for Vanquish treatments. I knew that if I had a question while at the office or away from it someone would quickly get back to me making me even more confident in the care I was under and their respect for me as a patient!"- A. / RealSelf / Oct 29, 2014
On average patients require 4 – 6 treatments to achieve desired results. Treatments are typically done once a week for 6 weeks — patients must be well hydrated during treatments in order for the device to be effective. Treatments last 45 minutes and patients are encouraged to do light exercise the same day following the appointment.
What are the Results Like?
Vanquish has been proven to result in a slimmer appearance. It is an effective form of nonsurgical fat reduction and the results are permanent. This is because fat cells do not regenerate once they are destroyed. As with any weight loss program, or other fat reduction procedure, adhering to a healthy diet and exercise routine will ensure the results are long lasting.
Vanquish or Traditional Lipo?
VanquishME is a fat reduction procedure best suited for patients who are at a stable, healthy weight. It is not recommended for patients who have a significant amount of fat to lose. Some patients will see better, more dramatic results with traditional surgical liposuction. Dr. Aston will evaluate the areas of concern, and determine if Vanquish is a suitable approach, or if surgery will attain the best results.
