How Long Will Vanquish Results Last?

Vanquish Results Are Permanent

Thank you for your question!  One of the great things about Vanquish is the results are permanent.  Since the fat cells are permanently removed from the body, as long as you stay relatively close to your current weight, the results will last.  If you gain weight, the fat will distribute equally among your remaining fat cells. However, there will be fewer fat cells left in the treated area to enlarge.  Combined with a healthy lifestyle, Vanquish can be a long lasting body contouring solution.

Vanquish Results

Results from Vanquish treatments are long lasting and permanent, but it’s important to keep in mind that you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Though fat cells are removed with Vanquish, you can still gain weight and fat will be distributed to the untreated cells. With all body contouring treatments, it’s imperative that you keep a healthy lifestyle.

Vanquish Results

Thank you for your question. Never long enough. Coolsculpting has a longterm track record of fat reduction. Vanquish is newer, and does not have the proven track record of years of successful treatments. In time, Vanquish may prove itself a worthy alternative, but the jury is still out. I hope this helps!

Vanquish results permanent

Just like other permanent noninvasive fat reduction devices on the market, Vanquish results last as long as you don't gain weight.  All of the devices remove a percentage of the fat in the area permanently.  However, if you gain weight, it will go to the untreated cells or deposit in another area your body wants to put it.  In a nutshell, it is a great motivator to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen!

Vanquish Fat Reduction is Permanent

Vanquish is a noninvasive, nonpainful, no downtime, no skin contact radiofrequency device used for fat reduction.

Vanquish works by its radio frequency ( a special form of electricity). The radiofrequency of Vanquish is tuned specifically to target only the fat compartment, heating it up to the point that some fat cells do not survive and are eliminated. This is permanent.

Although the fat cells death is permanent, remaining fat cells can expand and grow with weight changes due to dietary choices or lack of exercise.

If patients maintain a reasonable diet and exercise, their results with Vanquish are long-lasting.
