Why Patients Choose BTL Vanquish ME

BTL Vanquish ME is a body contouring device that uses focused radio frequency (RF) waves to heat and kill fat cells without damaging adjacent muscles and skin. It's designed to treat the whole abdomen from flank to flank in one treatment session for people who are in good overall health.

Natural-looking results across the entire abdominal and core area can be achieved in four to six short treatment sessions.


BTL Vanquish ME is...

  • Non-invasive: The radio wave "applicator" never comes in contact with the skin and the targeted fat is removed through natural body processes. 
  • Not painful: Patients describe the Vanquish experience as a hot stone massage
  • No downtime: Patients can resume activities after their 45-minute procedure

BTL Vanquish ME is not a weight-loss treatment. It is not a suitable treatment for obesity, nor as a substitute for surgical procedures such as liposuction.

Please note: BTL Vanquish ME is approved for circumference reduction of the abdomen (June 2015)

Reasons to Consider BTL Vanquish ME vs. a Spot Treatment

  • Although spot treatments are proven to kill fat, they are not for every body. 
  • Lines of demarcation and unevenness are known to occur with spot treatments. 
  • BTL Vanquish ME provides homogenous heating from flank to flank for an overall contoured procedure.
