Vanquish: A Pain-Free Fat Melter

Credit: Thinkstock

Summer is fast approaching and that means that those bikinis are lurking in your drawer (cue Jaws music). To prepare, many of us hit the gym and start swapping out our burgers for salads, but sometimes we need a little extra help. While there are many invasive and non-invasive treatments out there, there’s one fat melter that can zap your unwanted fat without even touching your body.

A new device called Vanquish that promises to help you get rid of unwanted fat will soon be made available. This Czech-made device requires four 30-minute sessions spaced a week apart to see results. The patient just lies under the machine while the sensors read their body fat to determine the energy level needed. Then focused-field radio frequency heats the skin to 101 degrees and the underlying fat to 120 degrees to help eliminate fat cells. 

But enough about how it works, what we really want to know is, does it work? A study done by the manufacturer, BLT Aesthetics, revealed that patients saw visible results after one session. After all four sessions, 59 percent of the abdominal fat was destroyed and patients lost either two or three inches around their waist. Even better, these results are also long lasting because the device kills the entire fat cell instead of just the fat in the cell like other devices. 

Did we mention it’s also pain-free? Those who have already experienced the device have said that it just gives a warm sensation. Tests revealed no evidence of nerve pain or damage to the skin, hair follicles, muscles or organs. So besides the fat loss, the only side effect is just a few days of mild redness and swelling.

It’s estimated to cost about $2,000 for four sessions when it becomes available in September. Would you try it?

I had it done tech had to stop 4 or 5 times kept telling her it was too hot ended up with third degree burns resulting in necrosis of the abdominal tissue and fat. It will be a long painful recovery. So make sure they know what they are doing. If it is too hot stop them. That's not the way it should feel. Don't think it is the machine its the person using it.

Sorry, I have to take the position of too good to be true. How long is "long lasting?" I would save my money for the plastic surgeon.

I did all the sessions (5) on my back fat. It did work amazingly well! Just a heads up: it works better if you just have a few inches to lose. For deeper fat deposits, or any fat that you can grab a big handful of, a combination of cool sculpting , then follow up with vanquish seems to work the best. At least that was my experience. And drink alot of water! All my back fat is gone, and I'm doing my stomach now. Neither vanquish or cool sculpting tighten skin, so when the fat is gone, your skin does lose its firmness. I have lost 4 inches around my back, and I have my old hourglass figure back. I'm 48, if that helps anyone. Also, I didn't want my husband to know that I did anything, and vanquish makes that possible! I would recommend going to a doctor for this, because it does get a little hot, and the tech needs to know what they're doing!

I have had $5000.00 put away for a tummy tuck-still on the fence. Choosing any surgery is a major decision. If only this would really work. I could save myself from a lot of post surgery suffering, and, of course, some money. Whether spending $2000.00 or $5000.00 ,It's important that I lose the fat; not the money. By the way, I exercise for at least two hours each day and I am physically active. My nutritional diet now consist of mostly fruits and vegetables yet, the pouch is still present. I am feeling very defeated;hence the decision to go forth with the tummy tuck. Is there anyone in N.Y.C. *qualified to perform this procedure? And no Michelle, it isn't vain to be in the best physical and mental health that you can be.

I am in Charlotte NC and tried this last Thursday for the first time. I have a total of 5 treatments. I'm excited to see the results. I don't think there is anything different yet but it's only been 3 days. And, I wasn't aware that you needed to drink 8 glasses of water the day before, day of and day after and have about 20 minutes of light cardio. I did drink 8 glasses the morning of and by the time I was half way through the 30 minute treatment I had to pee so bad it was painful! Ugh! I'm going to schedule later in the day so I can get the water in early and have time to release!
