Vanquish, an innovative non-invasive fat reduction procedure is now available at Sanctuary Medical Center, the first practice in South Florida to offer this waist reduction technology. This device was mentioned in “Hot Topics” at the 2013 annual conference of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) held in San Diego, California. Sanctuary has locations in Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, Fort Lauderdale and Lansdale.
Dr. Jason Pozner says, “Patients are able to achieve a significant reduction in abdominal and flank fat with the Vanquish technology. This device gives men or women the ability to comfortably, treat a large area of fat at one time, unlike previous treatments that could only address small targeted areas with discomfort.”
Four to six treatments are needed a week apart to see an optimal result, with final results being seen 6 weeks after the final treatment. The heat causes the fat cells to break down and die. The fat is then used as energy, or is broken down into waste, which the body begins to naturally flush away and eliminate.
