Vanquish™ is a revolutionary non-invasive, non-contact solution for reducing body regions where excess fat can accumulate. This novel device uses a focused wide field array of multipolar radiofrequency transmitters to heat up the fat around the waistline. Once heated, the fat cells squeeze out the fatty contents inside the cell which is absorbed by the surrounding lymphatics and sent to the liver as an energy source. Over the next several weeks, the areas treated slowly become smaller as the fat content is reduced.
Vanquish™ is indicated for the patient of close to normal body mass index who desires a reduction of fat around the waistline and who either is not a surgical candidate or does not desire a minimally-invasive procedure such as Vaser™ liposuction or Liteshape™ (laser-assisted liposuction).
Patients having the Vanquish™ procedure lay on a wooden table in the medical spa under the array of RF transmitters. A fiber-based spacer may be placed between the patient and the machine, and a fan may be used to help dissipate heat. The operator will position the machine over the desired treatment area and watch for several minutes to optimize the position of the transmitter to maximize the amount of energy transferred to the fat. The patient will feel a warming sensation that is very tolerable. If “hot spots” arise which feel too warm, the operator will re-position the transmitter to decrease these feelings. A series of 4 to 6 treatments are recommended and can be done as soon as 10 days to 2 weeks apart. Vanquish™ can be combined with Exilis™ in one treatment session to add skin tightening to the fat loss.
Side effects include redness to the treated area and possible tender areas that last a week or so. Patients with pacemakers or surgically-implanted metal in the treatment area and pregnant or lactating women are not candidates for Vanquish™.

Vanquish ME is a new and improved version of Vanquish! With more power and different applicator options to fit different areas of the body, Vanquish ME offers superior and effective results. The device uses radiofrequency to heat unwanted fat cells without contact, so surrounding tissues are left unharmed. The fat cells are then destroyed and eliminated naturally by the body for a slimmer silhouette. In fact, patients can see a reduction of 1-4 inches off of their waistline!
Vanquish ME Is indicated for patients with stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Common treatment areas include the abdomen and thighs. Also, those who are not good surgical candidates or do not want to undergo an invasive procedure such as Vaser liposuction can benefit from this procedure.
The Vanquish ME procedure is a non-invasive RF treatment for permanent fat reduction. The newly-designed device never comes in direct contact with the patient’s skin and covers the largest area of any other body contouring device on the market in one treatment. Patients describe the treatment as feeling like waves of comfortable heat. Most patients require a series of four to six treatments spaced a week apart. Patients can see improvement after the first treatment and will continue to see results improve for twelve weeks after a series of treatments is completed. This procedure can be combined with other non-invasive body sculpting treatments such as CoolSculpting or Exilis Ultra for even more dramatic results.
There are very minimal side effects associated with Vanquish ME, including warmth and redness in the treatment area. There is no downtime needed, so patients can feel free to return to their everyday activities directly after.
