Vanquish for Tummy and Thigh Fat Reduction.
The short answer is yes, it can be used not only for the tummy but also the thighs and in the future with new applicator sizes may even treat other areas. Vanquish uses RF energy to heat the fatty layer precisely, painlessly and selectively to a temperature that causes fat cells to undergo early cell death (apoptosis) by destroying the integrity of the fat cell. Like other techniques that accomplish the same effect, the body then clears the remnants by the lymphatic system. See the below link or make an appointment in our office for a comparison to other available non invasive fat reduction options.

Vanquish and treating the thighs
There is a thigh applicator available very soon that will
allow us to use Vanquish on the thighs which is one of the most requested
Does Vanquish work on areas other than the tummy?
Vanquish does work on areas other than the abdomen. It always requires hydration and proper positioning and in doing so, can be used to reduce fat on the inner thighs, back, and "muffin top" with success.
Vanquish on other body areas
Due to the shape of the Vanquish machine, our office has had success in treating areas other than the abdomen including the flanks, saddlebags, and "banana roll" under the buttock. Since the device has side panels, often the flanks or saddle bags can be targeted during treatment in addition to the abdomen. Your provider can evaluate to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure, and, together, you can determine the best placement of the device.
Can you use Vanquish on other areas of the body?
We and other providers have successfully treated back fat with Vanquish. The key part in treating back fat is getting good hydration and tuning on the machine. We have also worked on saddlebags and inner thighs. These areas are more fibrous so we are careful to watch for any hot spots.
Vanquish on other parts of the body
The answer is to wait a few months for the results to catch up. We encountered the same type of questions when CoolSculpting first came available around three years ago. The initial FDA clearance didn’t refer to fat so there were not conclusive answers about efficacy. When we were just getting started treating love handles, our patients wanted to use the treatment to treat bra fat. What I can answer is that there have been published results about fat loss in the abdomen, which means full sides and front, with an average reduction of close to 2 inches, with four one half hour treatment, a week apart.
Vanquish fat reduction
Vanquish can be used on several areas of the body for fat reduction, including abdomen and flanks,upper back, buttocks, and thighs. Newer applications will allow treatment of arms, calves, etc.
Vanquish Use Beyond the Abdomen
Vanquish has been clinically tested in the abdominal area, which also simultaneously treats the flanks or love handles.
Other areas are very amenable to treatment with Vanquish for fat reduction. Because Vanquish has a large treatment footprint, other large areas of fat deposition can also be treated.
The muffin top, back fat, flanks/love handles, and outer thighs can be treated currently with Vanquish. In the near future, it is likely that there will be a smaller Vanquish applicator to address the inner thighs, upper arms, and even the calves.
According to the clinical study in humans, the average waist circumference was decreased by 2 1/4 inches following 4 weekly Vanquish treatments to the abdomen and flanks. Individual patients outcomes will vary, with some more and some less in terms of inches lost.
