The Vanquish ME system uses radiofrequency in a unique way for deep-tissue heating, a known method for targeting fat and reducing fat cells in layers under the skin. Unlike other radiofrequency systems available, the Vanquish is unique in its ability to selectively target fat while protecting the surrounding layers of tissue. Although the Vanquish heats the skin’s surface to approximately 101 degrees, the underlying deeper fat because of the selectivity of the system can be heated to 120 degrees, which destroys unwanted fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Vanquish ME FAQs
Vanquish ME, or Vanquish Maximum Energy, is a body contouring and fat reduction treatment without the need for any invasive surgery. The treatment uses a harness device that administers radiofrequency energy to eliminate fat cells in the target area. The treatment’s harness device allows your treatment to be completed without touching your skin and allows a greater area of treatment at one time.
The unique treatment method also allows patients with a BMI greater than 30 to be treated with the device and is more efficient than other body contouring devices that use various types of energy to target fat cells because of the unique harness device. The treatment is also much safer and has less downtime than invasive surgical procedures like liposuction.
You will begin your Vanquish ME session with a consultation with out Medical Director. When it is determined that the treatment is safe and beneficial for you, we can set an appointment for your first session. The device does not touch the skin and can treat a large area of the body in a single session. Fat cells are heated to 120-degrees Fahrenheit until they are destroyed.
The skin and is not heated to these temperatures, and you will remain comfortable throughout the treatment. You will feel no pain during or after the treatment, and we work to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment process When the treatment session is finished, you are welcome to return to work or your normal routine without interruption.
You can see as much as a 59% reduction in fat from the target area, adding up to a waistline reduction of two to four inches. You may even notice a reduction in your clothing sizes and clothing that was once tight will fit more comfortably. Although you will not need to diet and exercise to achieve the fat reduction results, many patients feel that the confidence and self-image boost from the treatment help them go to the gym more often. Keeping a healthy lifestyle will help the results of the treatment improve and last longer.
You can improve the treatment process by getting some light exercise before and after the treatment. A light meal before the treatment and attention to hydration also aid in the treatment process. You should also stay hydrated before the treatment and after the treatment for the best results.
Vanquish ME can reduce fat from various parts of the body. The harness system targets fat in the following areas:
- Upper arms
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Bra strap area
One of the greatest features of this treatment is that all the target areas can be treated simultaneously. This cuts down on treatment time and provides life-changing results without invasive surgery. Over several sessions, you will see a fat reduction in all of the treated areas and gain a lean body.
Vanquish ME is a body contouring treatment that is not limited to patients with a low BMI, so you can enjoy this treatment at any size. Patients of all skin types, gender, and ages can enjoy the treatment. Ideal candidates are healthy but don’t have to fit a BMI under 30.
The treatment can be an excellent alternative if you are reluctant to undergo surgical fat removal due to the risks and recovery time associated with it. If you choose to undergo this body contouring treatment, you will require minimal recovery and may be able to undergo treatment during a lunch break and return to work immediately after.
Vanquish ME fat treatment is not sudden or immediate as with liposuction. The fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and removed from the body naturally. The lymphatic system is mainly responsible for this process but will not affect your daily life. This is an advantage because most people will not notice you have had a body contouring treatment and will assume that you are losing the fat naturally. Your results will be noticeable as soon as two to three weeks after the first treatment session. The results continue to improve in the months following the treatment.
You will need more than one session to reach your desired goal in most cases. Each treatment is tailored to meet your needs, with most patients requiring about four sessions to reach their goal. The treatment can eliminate as much as 59% of body fat from the treatment area. Each session takes 30 to 45 minutes, taking less time to treat a small section of the body and more time to treat a larger section of the body.
The fat cells in the treated area are eliminated from the body permanently. The cells will not regenerate, so the treatment results are virtually permanent. You will see fat growth only in certain rare circumstances after being treated. If you live a healthy lifestyle after the treatment, your results will last much longer.
Treatment with Vanquish ME can be faster than many other body contouring treatments. The treatment uses a harness device rather than a handheld device to eliminate fat. This allows the device to target a variety of areas of the body simultaneously. Handheld devices may take over an hour to treat the same amount of area the harness device can treat in 45 minutes. If you are looking to remove fat from a variety of body parts, this treatment is very efficient.
Vanquish ME is not meant to be a weight loss solution. The treatment can be used to address one symptom of obesity and can be used on patients with a higher BMI, but it is not designed to treat obesity. The treatment removes fat, but since fat does not make up a substantial amount of total body weight, the treatment will not result in significant weight loss. With this treatment, you will enjoy a thinner body and share many of the advantages that come from a weight loss plan.
If you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment, you may gain weight and see fat growth in untreated areas of the body. Treated areas of the body have a reduced concentration of fat cells, and these fat cells will not regenerate under normal circumstances. Fat growth in the treated areas will not show in comparison to untreated areas, so even if you experience weight gain, you will not see notable growth in fat.
Patients note that the treatment feels like a heating pad being placed on the treatment area and is not painful or uncomfortable. Fat is heated to as much as 120 degrees Fahrenheit to destroy the cells, but the tissue and skin surrounding the fat are only heated to a comfortable 101 degrees Fahrenheit. During the treatment, you will not be burned or experience any scarring on your skin. What are the side effects of Vanquish ME fat removal?

Liposuction is an invasive procedure that requires an incision and drainage of the fat. As a result of being a surgical procedure, you will spend some time recovering after the procedure and cannot immediately return to work or your regular activities. The results of liposuction can be dramatic and sudden, and liposuction is excellent for removing larger amounts of fat, but with the risks and downtime of surgery. Vanquish ME can provide natural-looking and effective fat removal results of up to 59%. You can also return to work immediately with no downtime or recovery time needed.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that freezes away fat. CoolSculpting is administered by using a handheld device that makes contact with the skin. This means that the device can only treat a small single section of the body at a time. Vanquish ME can treat large areas of the body without touching the skin and without prolonging treatment time. It is also more suitable than CoolSculpting for people with a higher BMI.
Sculpsure is also a non-invasive and uses laser technology to heat the fat cells underneath the skin. As a result, Sculpsure is more uncomfortable for the patient. Additionally, laser technology cannot penetrate into the deeper layers of fat. This means that although suitable for small areas, for larger areas of fat pockets, Sculpsure requires significantly more treatment sessions as compared to Vanquish ME.
In a recent published study (“Noninvasive Body Contouring Devices: Review of Effectiveness and Patient Satisfaction”, Suneel Chilukuri MD FAAD FASDS and Gregory Mueller MD FACS, Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, 2016 November), 3 popular non-surgical body contouring devices were compared by effectiveness and patient satisfaction, including Vanquish ME, CoolSculpting, and SculpSure.
This study showed dramatic results and found that Vanquish ME is 3 to 5 times faster than the others, covers more fat removal areas (see graph below), less pain for patients, lower cost to remove an ounce of fat, and better patient satisfaction.
