Flatten Tummy and Trim Thighs With Surgery-Free Vanquish®

If you’re fighting weight creep that seems to mock your every effort, it might be time for some outside reinforcements in your battle against the bulge. Now imagine that this help comes without any invasive techniques, such as scalpels, needles, or long, thin tubes.

Here at Vitality Institute of Agoura, we’ve equipped ourselves with the ultimate weapon to battle stubborn pockets of fat around your abdomen and thighs: Vanquish. As the name implies, this FDA-cleared laser technology is helping our patients in Agoura Hills, California, whittle away the extra weight without the need for liposuction or other more invasive fat-busting procedures.

No matter your size, let’s explore how Vanquish can flatten your tummy and trim your thighs.

Fat, by the numbers

To better understand how we’re able to appreciably reduce fat in your trouble areas, it might be helpful to step back and take a look at the science, and numbers, behind your fat. Once you pass through puberty, you carry, more or less, the same number of fat cells throughout your life. When you gain weight, these fat cells grow larger in size, not in number. When you lose weight, your existing fat cells shrink.

Our Vanquish technology eliminates the number of fat cells in your body. And they don’t come back. Here’s how:

No touch technology

The Vanquish system at our practice relies on radiofrequency energy to target the fat cells below your skin without harming the surface area. The energy we use targets and heats up, your fat cells, causing them to die off, and your body flushes them out through your lymphatic system. These fat cells don’t regenerate, which means you’re left with a fewer number overall to deal with.

Not only is this procedure noninvasive, the Vanquish equipment never touches your body. When you come in, you lie down on the treatment table and the device delivers energy over large areas, such as your abdomen or thighs, without ever making contact with your skin.

The timeline

While it’s hard to say how many treatments you need to reshape your body, during your initial consultation we sit down with you and come up with a timeline to give you a better idea. Most of our patients have four treatments, spaced a week apart. Each treatment lasts 30-45 minutes and there’s no downtime afterward, which means you’re free to return to your daily activities.

Your body may feel some warmth from the radiofrequency energy, which can last for a few hours after your visit, but this side effect rarely presents any problems.

The results

Vanquish works with your body to get rid of unwanted fat, which sets you up for long-lasting results. It also means you need to give your body time to process the treated fat cells and flush them out. Your skin also needs a little time to reshape itself over your new, slimmer form.

Most of our patients see gradual improvement in their bodies, with optimal results 6-12 weeks after their final treatment.

If you still have questions about our surgery-free and fat-reducing Vanquish technology, or you’d like to schedule a consultation, please give us a call or use the online scheduling tool on this website to request an appointment.
