For countless years, mankind has attempted to vibrate, shake, stretch, bend, and pound excess fat from problem areas. We’ve used all kinds of equipment and gadgets, but muffin top and love handles just don’t budge. Today, there is a scientifically-proven solution called Vanquish. This effective, non-surgical body sculpting method is available to women and men in central Oregon, at ExthetixMD Spa & Laser Center.
Spot reduction is the age-old misbelief that exercising a certain area will reduce fat specifically in that zone. For example, that doing hundreds of sit-up or crunches will diminish abdominal fat deposits. While regular exercise is generally good for your overall wellness, it does not work for spot reduction. You may tone muscles and lose some weight, but fat loss from physical activity occurs all over.
Historically, the only genuine method of spot reduction was liposuction – breaking fat up and sucking it out through small incisions in the skin. Liposuction works, but it carries the risks of anesthetic and surgery (including scarring), and requires significant recovery time.
Vanquish uses the science of radiofrequency (RF) energy to destroy fat cells in targeted zones. Sensors in the device determine just the right amount of RF energy and the depth to which it should be delivered for optimal results. As fat cells die, the lymphatic system harmlessly flushes them out*. The adult body does not produce new fat cells, so once they are gone, the improvement is long-lasting*. We recommend four to six once-a-week Vanquish treatments. Each session takes about 30 minutes. Treatment is well tolerated – you may feel some warmth, but most patients relax and read or watch television. There is absolutely no downtime. You may return to work or other activities right away.
The touch-free Vanquish system has the largest treatment area available, for fat melting from flank to flank. It is ideal for love handles, abdominal fat, and bra fat on the back. On average, patients can expect a two-inch reduction in waist size, and a reduction in fat in all treated areas of about 59 percent.
Simply put, Vanquish works for spot reduction, with no needles, sutures, or scars. Call EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center at (541) 303-9155 to learn more above Vanquish, as well as our full range of body, face, and day spa services.
