Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring the Vanquish™ in Webster, League City, Friendswood, and Houston, TX
How Does Vanquish™ Work?
Clear Lake Dermatology is proud to offer Vanquish™, a body contouring procedure that helps eliminate that stubborn fat around the abdomen and flanks (think “love handles” or “muffin top”), to the residents of Webster, League City, Friendswood, and Houston. These areas can be resistant to diet and exercise, leaving you feeling discouraged and disappointed in your efforts. The Vanquish™ system is an innovative body contouring procedure that successfully rids the body of excess fat without the expense, recovery time and other issues related to traditional surgical procedures.
Advantages of Using Vanquish™
As an alternative to a surgical procedure such as liposuction, Vanquish™ provides superb results with little downtime and very minimal pain or discomfort. The process only takes 30 minutes, and results can be seen almost immediately!
This procedure is completely non-invasive, and no part of the Vanquish™ system will touch your skin. This eliminates any bruising or swelling that often occurs in other body contouring procedures.
The radiofrequency that is used during the treatment is well-tolerated by most people and allows for a larger target area to be treated.
The greatest advantage associated with the Vanquish™ system is the more symmetrical appearance the treatment gives to the overall body.
The Vanquish™ Process
Vanquish™ is a non-contact RF system that is used to naturally eliminate unwanted fat cells by heating the treatment area with a radiofrequency that will destroy the unwanted fat cells, causing them to rupture and then die. The body will absorb these dead cells and then expel them from the body.
The process is selective, and the device will continuously alter the heat pattern to evenly reduce the fat cells in the treated areas without damaging surrounding muscles or internal organs. As the fat cells reach between 43 to 45 degrees (Celsius), the surrounding tissue will stay at a cooler 40 to 41 degrees.
It is recommended that patients receive at least four treatments of Vanquish™, but results will begin to be noticeable after just two. With a balanced diet and regular exercise routine, you will benefit from the outcome of your procedure for many, many years!
The recovery process begins before you get your first treatment. It is vital for patients to drink at least two liters of water per day, starting the day BEFORE the procedure and continuing until three days AFTER the treatment. This keeps the skin hydrated, which promotes quicker healing and better results.
The side effects are minimal and temporary. The most common side effects are tenderness in the treated area, a temporary feeling of warmth (like you might feel while sitting under a sun lamp), and some redness of the skin where the device was used.
There is no “downtime” with this procedure, and you can return to all your normal activities, including work and exercise, as soon as your appointment is over.
Is Vanquish™ Right for You?
It is recommended that you be within 10 percent of your goal weight and unable to lose those last few inches with diet and exercise. Vanquish™ is not a weight-loss mechanism, so those who are overweight, have cellulite or have excessive skin are not good candidates for the procedure.
Vanquish™ is perfect for those who do not want surgery, do not have a lot of weight to lose, who have had children or those who have had some type of change to their core.
How Much Does Vanquish™ Cost?
Vanquish™ treatment costs depend on the number of treatments you will need to achieve your maximum results. You can schedule a consultation, and our staff will be happy to discuss your individual needs and the price associated with the treatments and also discuss payment options. We can also provide financing if you are eligible!
