Vanquish – Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
The Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay is proud to be the first in the Tampa Bay area and among the first 20 in the US to offer Vanquish to their patients, an innovative new non-surgical technique for reducing fat from the entire abdominal area, including flanks. Vanquish has been scientifically proven to destroy fat cells, leading to fat reduction in the targeted area. The device offers a remarkable difference when it comes to non-invasive fat reduction techniques: with Vanquish, Dr. Jeffrey Hunt and our experienced team here at The Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay are able to target fat collected in the abdomen area all at once, rather than treating smaller areas one at a time. Patients can start to see results after the first treatment, and because of the ability to treat a larger area when compared to other methods, treatment sessions are often much shorter. Most patients complete their full treatment course in four 30-minute weekly treatments, with full results visible after two months.

Benefits of Vanquish
Out of all the non-surgical fat reduction methods available today, Vanquish boasts the ability to simultaneously target the largest treatment area. Due to its unique design, the device does not need to be moved around during treatment, often leading to more consistent results. The state-of-the-art equipment offers patients many other benefits, including:
- Shorter treatment sessions
- Fast results
- Largest treatment area in the industry
- Little to no discomfort during and after treatment
- No contact with skin
- Most patients are good candidates
How Vanquish Works
Vanquish uses a stationary no-touch device that will be placed above the entire targeted area, at least 1-2 centimeters away from the body. Addressing the entire treatment area at once, Vanquish utilizes newly developed Selective RF™ (radio-frequency) electromagnetic energy to target underlying pockets of fat cells in the flank and abdominal areas. The frequency is specifically set to allow the device to target and destroy the unwanted fat cells while leaving skin, muscle, and other healthy tissues unharmed. The RF technology allows the layers of fat to be heated, causing the fat cells to be broken down in a process called apoptosis.
The electromagnetic energy used by Vanquish travels more effectively through well-hydrated tissue, such as skin and muscle. For this reason, Dr. Hunt will ask you to drink plenty of water the day before, the day of, and the day after treatment in order to maximize your results. Following the procedure, the damaged fat cells will gradually be removed from your body through natural processes. Staying well-hydrated assists the body in metabolizing and removing the destroyed fat cells.
During treatment, you may feel a mild to moderate warmth in the targeted area, similar to a heating pad but there should be little to no discomfort. Each session lasts about 30 minutes, and most patients are able to return to their normal routines immediately after the procedure. Minor side effects such as redness or tenderness in the targeted area may occur, but should dissipate quickly. Four sessions are generally recommended for optimal results. Treatment sessions should be at least one week apart.
