Fat creeps onto the body in all sorts of frustrating ways. Sadly, there is no way to predict how and where stubborn fatty deposits will stick, nor a way to spot reduce with diet and exercise. Historically, the only way to do this has been with the surgical liposuction procedure. Patients of Park Avenue Skin & Spa can discover a new way. Non-surgical fat reduction can now be achieved using innovative technologies. We are pleased to offer Vanquish treatment for individuals who would like to whittle down and tone up areas such as the arms, abdomen, and thighs.
Vanquish is one of several new devices through which body contouring can be performed in a non-surgical, non-invasive manner. This device is based on powerful thermal energy that has shown promising effects on fat cells, as well as the skin.
Addressing Thigh Fat without Surgery
The thighs can be an area as difficult as the midsection when it comes to toning and tightening. Vanquish Flex, a smaller device than the original, has been designed specifically for this area. Similar to traditional Vanquish, thigh treatment targets unwanted fat with radio frequency energy delivered via two panels, which encompass the thigh area (saddlebags, too!). Panels do not come into contact with the skin. Radio frequency energy radiates from a few inches above, passing through the epidermis to affect cells beneath. Here, energy transfers to cells as heat, provoking shrinkage and elimination.
Vanquish can be an ideal alternative to liposuction for patients who are not looking for an immediate change such as what is possible with surgery. Treating fat with radio frequency elicits an ongoing response through which circumference decreases gradually. In most cases, obvious improvement is most noticeable at the six-week mark, after several Vanquish sessions have been performed. Though a slightly longer process, non-invasive fat-reducing treatment can achieve results that last years when supported by healthy lifestyle habits.
Patients of Park Avenue Skin & Spa can feel the utmost confidence in their appearance with our selection of non-invasive, non-surgical facial and body treatments. We are happy to speak with you about what you would like to achieve! Schedule your visit with Dr. Sobel at (212) 288-0060.
