DermASAP offers a non-surgical way to eliminatethe “muffin top” or “love handles” that don’t budge no matter how consistently you exercise or how well you eat. VanquishME™ is within the wide range of minimally invasiveprocedures that have emerged in recent years to target stubborn deposits of localized fat in areas such as the belly, waist, upper back, and arms.

Historically, you either had to learn to live with a new shape or had to undergo a much more invasive surgical treatment such as liposuction to be rid of these trouble areas. Of course, the latter option is not without risks and, depending on your medical history; it is possible you may not be a suitable candidate for liposuction or prefer a less invasive approach. To learn more, please contactDermASAP and schedule a consultation with Dr. Reed today!


VanquishME™ uses radiofrequency energy to treat fat cells. Other minimally invasive procedures use cooling temperatures to destroy fat cells, such as CoolSculpting™. This treatment effectively addresses fat pockets with an applicator that lifts up, isolates, and applies controlled cooling.

The VanquishME™ applicator that delivers RF energy to the treatment site never touches delicate tissues. This feature helps to minimize any discomfort and side effects during and after treatment. Also, the design of the Vanquish™ applicator allows larger areas to be treated, which minimizes the number of appointments and costs.

All devices have their own unique advantages and considerations. This type of approach to dissolving fat is advantageous over other methods, partly because it both delivers controlled heat to fat cells in targeted areas and tightens underlying tissues. The latter benefit is accomplished by targeting the collagen protein in the deeper layers of skin. As part of the aging process, the body produces less natural firming collagen. The result is sagging, lax tissues. This distinction is important because some areas of the body (such as the “bat wings” under the arms) may be more fleshy than fatty. Dr. Reed, in certain cases, will also recommend to combine a cellulite treatment, such as Cellutone, to ensure the best resultspossible.

The BTL Vanquish ME™ (Maximum Energy) builds on the success of the original BTL Vanquish™ non-invasive technology to reduce stubborn fat pockets around the midsection. Like its predecessor, BTL Vanquish ME™ device creates a high-frequency energy field that precisely targets the thermal effects into the fat layer while protecting surrounding skin tissue. In this way, it destroys unwanted fat cells over the course of four to six treatment sessions FDA cleared for non-surgical circumferential reduction of the abdomen.

Higher temperatures lead to higher fat disruption rates. The technical advances produce a more effectiveand consistent procedure with optimal cosmetic results for patients.
The newly engineered BTL Vanquish ME™ increases performance Selective RF™ tuning to deliver even more concentrated thermalenergy to the fat layer and less scatter than previously possible. The newly designed applicator delivers more concentrated power to the tissue in more homogeneous manner.

This prevents sensitive hotspots and allows for higher overall temperature elevation.

In our clinical experience, BTL Vanquish ME™ is an excellent non-surgical option for patientswith stubborn fat pockets that accumulate around the midsection — what patients refer to as a muffin top, bulging waistline or love handles. One of the key benefits of the device is its large spot size, allowing us to produce improvements over entire body areas in one treatment session.

In general, a healthy adult who is looking for a noninvasive treatment solution to reduce unwanted belly fat without the downtime and expense of surgery is a good candidate for BTL Vanquish ME™. Women and men who are no more than about 20 pounds overweight and carrying extra weight or have irregular contours in the abdomen area can expect positive results. The treatment goes after what is commonly referred to in yoga or pilates as the “core.” We also find that BTL Vanquish ME™ especially appeals to women who are getting ready for a beach vacation, a major event or special occasion and, despite diet and working out, want to whittle the waistline and smooth the body contoursaround their midsection. The same applies to men who have flab around their abs that they can’t seem to shed.

Patients should already be in relatively good health already or in the midst of developing healthy habits as this treatment is not a weight loss substitute.

Although VanquishME™ treatments require no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime, Dr. Reedencourages his patients to drink about one gallon of water daily starting the day before treatment through the day after each treatment. When coming in for your VanquishME™ session, you should wear comfortable clothing. At this time, if you have any additional questions, please contact our office and speak with one of our helpful members of staff.

BTL Vanquish is an advanced, convenient body slimming treatment. The experience of the treatment is an easygoing process requiring no preparation, although it is recommended that you stay well-hydrated. With no incisions or needles, the treatment involves no anesthesia and no downtime. If you opted for Cellutone treatments to be performed in conjunction, this will be done so prior to beginning the Vanquish ME procedure.

You’ll be awake, seated or lying comfortably during your treatment session. The applicator is brought around your midsection and powered on. During the session, some patients can read, browse on their phones or just relax.

DermASAP patients frequently refer to the heat as feeling like a warm, spa treatment. Because this treatment is non-invasive, you can return to work or other activities (even the gym!) right after. You can achieve desired results in as little as two half-hour sessions. In the following months, you will notice firmer skin and a more lean physique as heat destroys the fat cells and collagen production is stimulated.

As soon as the treatmentis complete, you’ll be on your way back to your normal activities.

Some people will compare Vanquish to other fat reduction treatments like Coolsculpting. Although the goals are similar, these are not the same. Coolsculpting is a different technology that uses a process called “cryolipolysis” to freeze fat cells to destroy them. The experience is also a little different since with Coolsculpting, fatty areas are drawn in between two cooling pads and cooled.

BTL Vanquish also differs because it addresses a larger area of the body. Where Coolsculpting is limited to an area treated between the cooling pads, BTL Vanquish uses wide, pad-like sensors that the patient lays under. The design of the sensors also gives the BTL Vanquish system the ability to treat patients in a wider body mass index range. With BTL Vanquish ME™, the device hovers over the treatment area in a panel array of energy that does not come into direct contact with the skin. Industry’s largest spot size treats high volumes of fat at the same time. Fat layer reduction from flank to flank, overall the whole abdomen, leads to significantly higher circumferential reduction than just localized and time-consuming treatment of pockets of fat. Therefore, few, if any, side effects occur, and large swaths of body fat can be treated at a time, providing a cost-effective solution.

The specialists at DermASAP have decades of experience and training in the latest cosmetic dermatology has to offer, including non-surgical fat reduction techniques such as Vanquish™. With convenient locations in Quincy, MA. and Plymouth, MA., patients in the Greater Boston area are always close to qualified professionals and the best modern technology available to improve their appearance and their lives.

Your consultation is where you can be in the driver seat of your body goals. During your consultation where you will meet with one our physicians, you can discuss your cosmetic goals, point out areas you are concerned about and elaborate on your situation. The area you want to treat will be closely examined, and a customized planwill be recommended.
After your treatment, it will take some time for the body to process the broken down fat cells naturally. Most patients experience a clear reduction of the thickness of their fat layer within a month of their treatment. Studies have demonstrated that patients who undergo four to six weekly treatments can experience a nearly 60% reduction in fat of the treated area.

Depending on your particular case, you may benefit from a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results. The recommended procedure paired with VanquishME™ is discussed below.

A treatment that is commonly paired with VanqishME is Cellutone. This is a cosmetic treatment designed to reduce the look of cellulite in various areas of the body. Dr. Reed often recommends combining VanquishME and Cellutone treatments to ensure you receive the best results possible. Cellutone uses vibration therapy to break apart and soften tissue that has been affected by dimpling or indentations caused by cellulite.

At DermASAP, we recommend this combination of treatments to provide sleek, smooth, flawless results. We have found that through combining Vanquish ME with Cellutone we get a more consistent fat loss, and better tissue toning (less tissue laxity).

A study was recently published in The Journal of Drugs and Dermatology comparingVanquish ME with other noninvasive body contouring such as CoolSculpting. Results determined Vanquish ME is the leader in non-invasive fat removal alternatives.

Unlike tummy tucks, there is no surgery, anesthesia or recovery. Plus BTL Vanquish ME™ allows the doctor to precisely shape the body area as it gradually reduces the fat layer. Other non-invasive systems use a point source of energy that damages only a small spot size of unwanted fat cells either by freezing or heating. In most cases, these other fat reductiontechnologies require the applicator clamps to be placed onto the treatment area and moved against the skin for close to an hour — which can be cumbersome and uncomfortable. Invasive procedures, such as tummy tucks or tumescent liposuction, are associated with varying degrees of discomfort, side effects and downtime.

BTL Vanquish ME™ is great fit for patients who are looking for a convenient option and/or have busy schedules. There is no pre- or post-treatment preparations or care. Patients come into our office for a 45-minute session and typically require four to six treatments about a week apart. Visible improvement is noticeable in only four to six weeks. In some cases, results are experienced after a single treatment.

There are a number of benefits of the BTL Vanquish ME™. Most notable is the fact that treatment is virtually pain-free and easy, with many patients reporting that the experience was relaxing and felt like a hot stone massage technique. It’s affordable for most of our patients, and results are consistent and long-lasting. Patients and my office staff tell me thy look better and feel better with a trim, attractive appearance – it’s very satisfying to see them return with a spring in their step.

Our patients have been very happy with their results. Typically, they experience a drop in dress size, a curvy waistline and smooth contours around the middle that allows them to wear fitted jackets, belts, and other tailored styles. Many patients also report they feel moreself-confident in their personal and professional lives.

We find it important to stress hydration before and after treatment, as drinking water helps facilitate optimal results. Of course, a healthy diet and exercise is always a smart regimen, especially walking after treatment.

Average cost: $500-$4,000
