Vanquish Me (Maximum Energy) is the newest non-surgical and painless procedure to reduce fat cells for those stubborn trouble areas with the use of radio-frequency technology (RF).
Vanquish ME is for those looking for a less invasive and more affordable alternative to liposuction or surgery. Vanquish uses radio frequency to shrink fat cells deep within the skin.
In contrast to other radio frequency treatments, however, Vanquish does not affect the tissue closer to the surface of the skin. While the surface of the skin will reach a maximum temperature around 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the fat beneath the surface will reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The heated fat cells are destroyed and ultimately eliminated from the body. Vanquish is an ideal treatment option for patients who are seeking to eliminate body fat in their torso and thighs easily and comfortably. Common areas for this are the abdomen or thighs, as Vanquish is ideal for larger surface areas. The recommended number of treatments is 4-6 sessions, scheduled 1-3 weeks apart.
The only preparation needed for treatment is for the patient to drink water and stay hydrated in order to achieve maximum results. Then the practitioner will place the applicator over the treatment area for 30 minutes to an hour per area. At this time the patient may read or rest while they wait for treatment to complete. A large applicator is used which allows for quicker treatment of large areas of the body.
During the treatment patients may feel a brief sensation of heat but the practitioner will adjust the heat intensity levels to maintain the patient’s comfort. Many people describe the heat as comforting or soothing. Some patients report a sustained sensation of heat for several hours after treatment. Recovery time is minimal with some patients noticing slimmer and tighter results as soon as after their second treatment and continue up to six months after their last. Although rare, minor swelling or redness can occur but usually resolves after 24 hours. Patients are also able to return to regular daily activities immediately post treatment.
Vanquish results can be noticeable after patient’s second treatment (or occasionally following their first treatment) and can improve for up to six months after treatments.
Vanquish delivers an even shrinking of fat cells across the treated area. Once all treatments have been completed, many patients will have lost up to 4 inches in the treated area. *Individual results may vary.
It is important to stay hydrated and to protect treated skin from sun exposure for several weeks following each treatment.

The treated fat cells are permanently destroyed, meaning patients will have a permanently fewer number of fat cells within treated areas. For most patients, results can be maintained indefinitely with a healthy lifestyle.
Many patients notice that the skin in treated areas looks and feels tighter following Vanquish. While Vanquish is designed to target the fat cells deep within the skin, the radio frequency technology also rejuvenates skin structure.
The radio frequency technology used in Vanquish is extremely safe.
Side effects which may occur following Vanquish treatment are drop in blood pressure, itching, swelling, redness, bruising, discoloration, lumps, blistering, or burns. Many of these side effects will go away on their own.
Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, menstruating, have certain electronic or metal devices, have an infection, have a bleeding disorder, have certain heart or vascular issues, have an inability to perceive hot or cold, or have immune disorders should not receive Vanquish.
Vanquish uses heat to eliminate unwanted fat cells while CoolSculpting uses cold. In terms of efficacy, one study reported that patients who had received a full treatment (multiple sessions) of Vanquish experienced a loss of 59% of body fat in the treated area, and CoolSculpting patients lost between 20 and 22% of fat in the treated area. Also, Vanquish delivers much more even, natural-looking results than CoolSculpting. Vanquish requires less time than CoolSculpting, and is also more comfortable to endure.
Prior to receiving Vanquish, it is recommended to engage in some mild exercise, eat a light meal, and make sure you are properly hydrated. Specifically, drinking 1 to 2 liters of water one day before treatment will make treatment more effective.
After treatment, simple measures taken in the realms of sleep, exercise, hydration, and dietary health can do wonders for maintaining Vanquish results. Also, make sure to follow up with your doctor after each treatment to gauge your results and schedule your next treatment (if necessary).
