I had my first Vanquish ME treatment yesterday and now I am very swollen. Is this normal?

Pain and swelling with vanquish
pain and swelling with vanquish may occur after treatment. Drink water and massage the area. The swelling indicates the deep fat has been targeted. So long as the skin is not damaged or blistered everything should resolve with time.
Swelling after Vanquish
Swelling is a good indication that fat has been targeted, and treatment was successful. Although Vanquish should not be painful, there are areas that can feel as if they have hot spots. If this should happen, it is important you let your provider know so that they can adjust the applicator and settings to your comfort.
