Today’s non-invasive fat reduction treatments are making body contouring easier than ever. We proudly offer Vanquish ME™, a radiofrequency treatment that reduces fat on the belly, waist, flanks, saddle bags, and inner and outer thighs with no downtime. What many people don’t realize, however, is that not everyone is a good candidate for non-invasive fat reduction.
To get the most out of your body contouring consultation and subsequent treatment, here are a few key questions to ask yourself:
Are you looking for more dramatic results?
One of the best ways to achieve more dramatic fat reduction is VASERlipo®. VASERlipo uses ultrasound energy to break down fat cells before suctioning them out through a cannula. VASERlipo can reduce unwanted fat almost anywhere. Following the procedure, you’ll need to avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting for two weeks. You’ll also need to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling.
Vanquish ME, on the other hand, is a no-downtime technology that offers gradual fat reduction in the weeks and months following your treatment. We recommend a series of 6 treatments to obtain your desired goal. This non-invasive treatment feels like a heating pad, and may cause you to sweat during treatment, so staying hydrated is essential. You may also experience redness at treatment sites, which will quickly subside.
Do you like the idea of having more control over your results?
We love Vanquish ME because it can improve your contours without surgery or downtime. The only downside is that there’s no way to predict how much fat your body will expel, or how long it will take to expel it. Every person responds differently to the treatment, and has different body goals. If you are seeking more control over the amount of fat of you would like to reduce, including when exactly it will be reduced, VASERlipo is an ideal choice. Dr. Atagi’s precise control with VASERlipo provides more predictable, dramatic improvement to your contours than Vanquish ME.
Are you looking to lose weight?
You may need to rethink body contouring if your main goal is losing weight, because Vanquish ME and VASERlipo are not designed for weight loss. These popular treatments are body contouring technologies that trim specific areas of the body. They aren’t designed to reduce your overall weight.
