Our team at Sun City Laser in El Paso, TX, knows how frustrating it can be to tone areas of the body that aren’t responding to exercise or a healthy diet. That’s why we’re bringing you some information on BTL Vanquish Me, so you can educate yourself on this exciting treatment option.
BTL Vanquish Me: Does It Permanently Remove Fat?
This Is a Permanent Treatment
BTL Vanquish Me doesn’t just temporarily hide fat cells away, it completely eliminates them through the process of apoptosis. Apoptosis is a natural process in which biochemical events cause cells to change or die. Vanquish Me harnesses this ability and gives treated fat cells a permanent eviction from your body.
It Reduces Fat but Will Not Prevent Weight Gain
This treatment is used to contour the body and reduce fat in desired areas. That said, it can’t stop weight gain or future weight storage. This is why we recommend pairing your treatment with a healthy, balanced diet and exercise routine. This will help you get the best out of your results, with the benefit of being good for your health at the same time!
Each person is different, and if you’re not sure about the best diet or exercise program for you, a doctor, nutritionist, or dietitian should be able to give you helpful tips for your unique needs.
How Does It Work?
Vanquish Me uses a high-frequency energy field that targets the fat layer under your skin while protecting your skin at the same time. That’s because the frequency is specialized, so anything besides the fat layer won’t be affected. This thermal process leads to the death of the treated fat cells.
Vanquish Me is an excellent tool used to help tone your body, and it can provide a non-surgical solution for those wanting to sculpt their bodies but not go through the cost or stress of surgery. This treatment is especially handy when it comes to firming up the waistline and abdomen area.
It may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but this form of electricity is widely used today. Oftentimes you’ll see it used in dermatology, to help regenerate collagen, eliminate fat, and tighten the skin. It’s even used during some cosmetic surgeries. It may be a type of electricity, but you won’t be getting shocked! It’s safe to use on the body.
How Is This Different From Other Treatments?
While a surgical tummy tuck would require anesthesia and a sometimes extensive recovery, Vanquish Me doesn’t need either. There’s no downtime associated with it, you just come in and specify the areas you’d like to be addressed. This treatment will precisely shape the body as the fat layer is reduced in key areas.
Some other non-surgical fat reduction treatments require direct contact with the skin, or for a device to be clamped onto the body. Some people find this direct contact a little inconvenient or awkward-feeling. Vanquish Me adds another layer of comfort by hovering over the area instead of pressing right up against it. You can whip out your favorite book or pop in some earbuds, and relax to a mild warming sensation, similar to a heating pad.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated?
This treatment shines when it comes to treating your core. Your flanks and abdomen can be treated to firm up the appearance of your stomach area and “love handles.” These are the most common areas to be treated, but Vanquish Me isn’t necessarily limited to them.
Reducing and firming up the waistline can help improve the fit of your pants, and treating the back of your waist is possible too. The outer and inner thigh areas, bra line, and arms may also qualify to receive treatment.
What Are the Top Benefits?
1. No Pain
Going in for any sort of treatment can be unnerving, but once clients realize how comfortable BTL Vanquish Me is, many start to actually look forward to their treatments!
Not only is it exciting for them to know they’re getting closer to their personal goals, but the fact it can feel similar to a hot stone massage at the same time is definitely a bonus, especially if you can’t squirrel time away to visit a spa very often.
2. More Affordable
Surgery is expensive, but this treatment is considerably less of a strain on the wallet. Not only is the treatment itself less expensive, but it also doesn’t require you to take time off work or take a break from life.
If you underestimate how much recovery time you need from surgery, you may find yourself missing work days and not having enough paid time off to cover it. Rather than forcing yourself back to work before you’re ready, or watching your bank account dwindle, why not choose a treatment that’s both easier on your body and your budget?
3. Excellent Results
The results can be truly impressive, and since your results will continue to improve over time, you may find your friends pestering you to know what you’ve changed about your routine. Unless you tell them, no one should be able to guess that you’ve had this treatment.
4. It May Be More Effective
High volumes of fat can be addressed at once with this technology, which is yet another thing that sets it apart. Other non-surgical treatments may be limited to treating small areas at a time, which can be great if you only want a very specific area treated.
However, if you want a general toning across the abdomen, Vanquish Me can help you get the job done in a more time and cost-efficient way.
5. It Can Be More Accessible
Even if you can afford surgery and have enough time off you can dedicate to it, that doesn’t mean you’ll qualify for it. It can be discouraging for patients to save up and plan for surgery, only to discover that their body type or immune system would make it unsafe.
There are a lot fewer limitations when it comes to body contouring treatments, since it’s not nearly as hard on the body and it can work on a wide range of body types.
What’s the Timeline?
What To Expect From the Treatment Time
When you’ve got a busy schedule, convenience is key. This treatment is about as convenient as they come. You’ll want to make sure you’re hydrated and remove any metal jewelry, like belly rings, from around the area that’s going to be treated. Other than that you shouldn’t have to set aside any extra prep time.
Recovery time is nonexistent. You won’t have to sit around or take the day off, you can just come in for treatment and walk right back out. You should expect each treatment to take right around 45 minutes.
What To Do During Treatment
Some people like to see it as a time they can set aside to finish a podcast episode they haven’t gotten to, or even to sneak in a quick nap! The comforting warmth of the treatment makes it pretty easy to relax and enjoy the experience.
When You Can Expect Results
We recommend a series of treatments spaced about a week apart to really nail your results. Each treatment should bring you closer and closer to your goal, and around four to six treatments is when most people are thrilled with their results.
While it’s not uncommon to notice improvement after just a single treatment, don’t be discouraged if it takes a few weeks to show up. Some patients need up to eight weeks until they start to see their body really respond to treatment. Each body will react on a slightly different timeline as their fat cells are dying and being disposed of, but don’t worry, the process is underway.
What Temperature Will the Treated Fat Layer Rise To?
The core of the treated body fat may reach around 120 degrees Fahrenheit, but the skin will only reach around 100 degrees. If 100 degrees sounds like a lot, remember that the normal human body temperature is almost 99 degrees already, so an extra degree or two is only enough to feel comfortably warm to the touch.
The treated fat cells are the only things that are damaged during treatment, and once they’re damaged they’ll be harmlessly removed by the body’s natural disposal process.
So There’s No Recovery, but Should I Still Do Anything After Treatment?
Make sure you’re well hydrated after treatment. Good hydration, as well as a balanced diet and exercise program, can provide long-term health benefits and will help you attain your goals even faster.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you’re in good health and having trouble contouring your body on your own, this could be the right treatment for you. This treatment can be applied regardless of your gender. The best results are experienced when a person is generally fit but has areas that they want to firm up and tone.
It’s great for whittling down the waistline if you have an upcoming big event you want to look your best for, or if you just have an area you’re self-conscious about and want to improve the appearance of. Men sometimes will seek out treatment if they want to improve the appearance of their abs, for instance.
