Great question! Vanquish utilizes radiofrequency waves to selectively target fat instead of surrounding tissue. Since it is a large panel with side panels, it can cover the entire abdomen and love handles. Currently, the primary area of use is on abdominal fat and love handles. The biggest advantages of Vanquish are that it doesn't hurt, doesn't have any recovery, is an easy 30 min treatment, and the patients with the most fat have the most dramatic improvement.
