DermASAP offers a non-surgical way to quickly eliminate the “muffin tops” or “love handles” that don’t budge no matter how consistently you exercise or how well you eat.

VanquishME™ is among the range of minimally invasive procedures that have emerged in recent years to target stubborn deposits of localized fat in areas such as the belly, waist, upper back, and arms.

vanquish-model-plymouthHistorically, 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.

VanquishME™ uses radio frequency energy to treat fat cells. Other minimally invasive procedures use very cool temperatures to destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting™, for example, effectively treats 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. In addition, the design of the Vanquish™ applicator allows larger areas to be treated, which minimizes the amount of appointments and costs.

Why Use Radio Frequency Energy?

Vanquish_issue_selectivityAll devices have their own unique advantages and considerations. This type of approach to dissolving fat is advantageous over other approaches, 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.

DermASAP patients frequently refer to the heat as feeling like a warm, spa treatment. Since it is so non-invasive, you can return to work or other activities (even the gym!) right after treatment. 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.

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.

BTL Vanquish ME: FAQs

What Is The BTL Vanquish ME™ Device? How does It Work?

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, the newly engineered BTL Vanquish ME™ increases performance Selective RF™ tuning to deliver even more concentrated thermal energy 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. Higher temperatures lead to higher fat disruption rates. The technical advances produce a more effective and consistent procedure with optimal cosmetic results for patients. In our clinical experience, BTL Vanquish ME™ is an excellent non-surgical option for patients with 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.

Am I a Good Candidate for The Procedure?

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 contours around their midsection. The same applies to men who have flab around their abs that they can’t seem to shed.

How is BTL Vanquish ME™ Different fFrom Other Fat Reduction and Body Contouring Treatments?

A study was recently published in The Journal of Drugs and Dermatology comparing Vanquish ME with other non invasive body contouring such as CoolSculpting. Results determined Vanquish ME is the leader in non-invasive fat removal alternatives. Click here to read the full article.

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 reduction technologies require that the applicator clamps onto the body or is placed and moved against the skin for close to an hour — which can be cumbersome and uncomfortable. 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 spotsize 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. Invasive procedures, such as tummy tucks or tumescent liposuction, are associated with varying degrees of discomfort, side effects and downtime.

How Much Time is Involved in This Procedure and How Soon Would I Notice Results?

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 in our office for a 45-minute session and typically require four to six treatments about a week apart. A visible improvement is noticeable in only four to six weeks. In some cases, results are experienced after a single treatment.

What Are Biggest Benefits of The Device?

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.

What Feedback Are You Getting From Patients?

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 more self-confident in their personal and professional lives.

Is There Anything you Would Suggest Patients do Beforehand to Prepare for Treatment?

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.
