BTL Industries, the creators of the Vanquish device for fat reduction, has announced FDA approval of Vanquish for circumferential reduction of the abdomen area.
Vanquish is a gentle non-invasive fat reduction treatment that utilizes selective radio frequency (RF) energy to target the fat cells of the abdomen area. The fat cells are permanently and naturally destroyed by the RF energy, while the skin and muscle is left un-touched.
Vanquish has been clinically tested and scientifically proven to be a very safe and effective fat reduction treatment for the abdomen and love handles. Vanquish has been found to decrease belly fat by two or more inches by eliminating up to 59% of the targeted fat cells.
Vanquish set’s itself apart from other heating or cooling systems at med spas. With the industry’s largest spot size, the Vanquish body shaping system treats the entire abdomen in one application and does not touch the body at all during treatment. Vanquish has been found to remove more fat per session in comparison with other non-invasive fat reduction techniques, and is usually less costly.
Patients will be comfortable throughout the entire Vanquish treatment and will only feel mild to moderate heat, but generally no pain at all. There’s no anesthesia, harsh side-effects, or downtime involved. This 30-minute body shaping treatment can be performed any time of day – during a lunch break or between running errands, after exercising or even right before an important event.
BTL’s Director of Clinical Development, Andrea Morrison, has said, “FDA clearance of BTL Vanquish marks a defining moment in our journey to provide physicians and their patients an elegant treatment option to target fat cells and bring about a reduction in the waist circumference.” Andrea adds, “BTL is proud to offer patients a comfortable, affordable and noninvasive body shaping experience. This regulatory milestone underscores BTL’s commitment to deliver meaningful solutions to aesthetic patient care.”
Danyo Plastic Surgery recommends a series of at least 4 Vanquish fat reduction treatments for best results, along with a healthy routine of exercise, plenty of water, and a nutritional diet incorporating whole foods such as fruits and vegetables.
