Most of the buzz from the Vanquish is because the device never actually touches that patient's body. Likewise it is pain-free with little to no reported side effects. Patient's lie under the device for 30 minutes with the Vanquish positioned around the stomach, love handles and back. The sensors in the device detect the body fat and adjust the energy used.

According to a recent article in Allure Magazine: "Of 25 patients studied, all had visible results after the first treatment and, after the full course of four sessions, 59 percent of abdominal fat was destroyed, on average, resulting in a two-inch (and in a few cases, a three-inch) reduction in waist size."
Four 30 minute treatments are typically required.
The Vanquish works by heating the subcutaneous fat. Patient's describe it as standing in front of a heater, but not uncomfortable. Some report redness and swelling for a few days.
A study by the manufacturer have shown an average of 59% of abdominal fat was destroyed after four treatments, and all patients saw a visible difference after the first treatment. Most patients lost an average of 2-3 inch's on their waist. Vanquish kills the fat cells, not just the fat within the cells which helps the results to be long lasting.
