Skin Tightening Results with Vanquish Treatments

Vanquish uses controlled radio frequency (RF) waves to target fat cells, destroying them without harming the muscle or skin. Over a period of time, the cells are filtered through the lymphatic system, metabolized in the liver, and excreted through urine. Vanquish can destroy up to 60% of the fat cells in any given area and can improve skin laxity and overall body contour by the very nature of its radio-frequency energy, which is well-known to result in skin tightening.

Vanquish Treatments and Skin Tightening

The Vanquish ( Maximum Energy) automatically tunes into targeted subcutaneous fat, to heat the deep tissue and selectively destroy fat layers while it remains blind to non-fatty tissues!

The Vanquish received FDA-clearance for circumferential fat reduction in 2015. Although studies have not been done to prove skin tightening, it is well-known the radio frequency devices are exceptionally effective at causing skin tightening by the nature of the energy.

Vanquish for Skin Tightening?

Vanquish is indicated for deep tissue heating and fat reduction; however, some skin tightening may occur as a result of the treatment, although studies have not yet been done.

Vanquish causes Fat Reduction, but may cause Skin Tightening

Vanquish is FDA-approved for deep tissue heating, and as a result of the specific heating of the fat compartment, results in fat reduction.

When skin is heated to around the 42-43 degrees C point, skin tightening may result. The skin following Vanquish treatment is typically pink and warm for a period of minutes to hours. If skin is heated, skin tightening can occur.

No study has been completed to evaluate skin tightening with Vanquish. There may be some benefit but no definitive answer is possible at this time without proper evaluation.
