Fat necrosis after Vanquish
Having had Vanquish on myself I can tell you that this goes away in about a week. Its actually a sign that enough energy was transmitted to the fat to cause early cell death resulting in these firm areas that we call fat necrosis. I would wait until it resolves before doing another treatment.
Vanquish: Possible Side Effects
Vanquish is an FDA-approved non-invasive body
contouring, skin tightening and fat reduction treatment requiring no
surgery or downtime. The treatment is designed to sculpt and reduce problem
areas resistant to diet and exercise. Vanquish effectively destroys stubborn
fat in the upper and lower abdomen, love handles, back, saddle bags, inner
thighs and upper arms
individuals may experience temporary redness, puffiness, or tenderness, but can
resume daily activities immediately. Post-treatment hydration and light
exercise helps to improve lymphatic drainage and elimination of fat cells. We
ask our patients to drink at least 8 glasses of water for a few days following
treatment. Results are not seen immediately. It takes time for the body to
expel the dead fat cells and it requires successful completion of your
recommended series of treatments to see the final result. Occassionally, a fat nodule will take several more weeks to completely resolve.

FAT NECROSIS AFTER VANQUISH TREATMENT
This is a condition that occurs in a small percentage of patients . The reason is sudden lysis of a large group of fat cells, it makes a lump. The medical term is fat necrosis. Basically, it proves that the Vanquish treatment works, perhaps too well or too quickly in those instances. If you wait an extra week or so, the mass will soften up considerably and you may continue with the treatment.
