It was an easy, painless, quick procedure, like laying under a heating pad for 30 minutes.
That being said, I paid $1300 for 3 treatments spaced one week apart. 2 weeks after the series of 3, I have NO VISIBLE or Measurable results, as if I never had the treatment.
Unless something shifts over time, it was not worth the money. Most of the before/after photos I've seen from the company don't show visible results, they look the same before and after, just like me.
Results may show up over time....
To be fair, I've been told the results show up after months. I will update. What concerns me is the photos Vanquish has put out, I see no visible results.
I'd like more information from the Vanquish company about how the product works, and what to expect and when. Despite my review, I would be willing to continue to try Vanquish for additional sessions, in the hope that results would show up in several months. I would like to do at least 6 sessions. I encourage people to try the procedure and post visible results.
In all fairness there is some promise in this product
After posting last night and realizing I can not edit my initial post, I've taken some extra time to study my before and after photos, and I'd like to update my post to communicate a more favorable review. I think that perhaps the volume in my belly has gone down a tiny bit, and that my waist has contoured. I think 6 treatments is more realistic for a more pronounced result, if results are possible over a longer course of time with this treatment. I am wondering if I will see more results in the next couple of months, and if I do I will certainly post. I will possibly try more treatments, but I'd like to see a more compelling marketing package to assure me of the potential of my investment.
I do think the Vanquish line needs to put more convincing photos of effective results. I do not think the Vanquish company photos are a favorable promotion of the product. I also believe it would be useful to show a full line of progression of treatments. "After 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6" and then a "3+6 months later" photo.
I've tried Vaser Shape and now Vanquish. I think the concept of Vanquish is exciting, and I do encourage others to give it a shot. As in any product on the market, the better educated we are about the product and process the better prepared we are to have realistic expectations. I suggest photos that show better results, a technical video explaining the process and what EXACTLY happens with the fat and when and how it is expected to exit the body, and a detailed brochure explaining expectations and timelines for results.
Going to try more treatments-subtle but something.
I am going to try more treatments. I think the treatment is potentially worth it, albeit subtle. You will notice I got a good deal in Atlanta, especially compared to the other review.
Think of it as Body Contouring not as lipo

i am becoming more happy with the results. If what I have now lasts, i am thinking it will be worth it. Think of this treatment as body contouring rather than laser liposuction. I can't wait for vanquish to put up MORE INFORMATION about how this works from a "how does the laser kill the fat and how does the fat leave the body" standpoint.
Like I've been saying, I think I will get even better results with 6 treatments. The real test in effectiveness will be as the next 6-12 months pass.
When I did Vaser Shape (not Vanquish), my results lasted for about a year.
Right now I am happy with the contours of my waist and feel that Vanquish has made a subtle impact. Ps. I am a slender woman with curves. My only real fat is and has ALWAYS been in the pooch of my stomach and around my waist.
I give it a thumbs up-1 year later
I give my 3 Vanquish treatments a thumbs up after almost 1 year.
I believe my "pooch" has been less trouble this year....and I am going to go ahead
and give Vanquish some credit. Don't get me wrong, the fat is not gone, but the volume feels less burdensome.
I'd love to try another 3 pack of Vanquish treatments, especially with the new time settings.
No long term results
The results are not long term with this product. I would have been better off investing my two rounds of laser treatments (A round in California and a round in ATL) and gotten smart lipo.
