How Long Will Vanquish Results Last?

Doctor Answers (2)

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.
