Vanquish Fat Reduction in Calgary
Glenmore Healthcare is the first clinic in Calgary to offer the Vanquish fat removal procedure as seen on the View, the Doctors and Dr. Oz. The Vanquish is the newest non-invasive body contouring treatment and the first that incorporates “focused-field radio frequency” to kill fat cells. Now you can lose inches off your thighs, legs, abdomen and saddlebags painlessly.
How does the Vanquish Remove Fat?
The Vanquish heats the skin to 38C and the underlying fat to 48C, which results in the permanent destruction of fat cells. Because the Vanquish kills the fat cells themselves and not just the fat found inside the cells, results are long lasting. Patients typically do not feel any pain compared to other body contouring treatments.
The treatment requires four 30-minute sessions spaced a week apart for maximum results. Some patients notice a visible difference after the first treatment but after the fourth treatment, the average person loses up to two inches from their waistline.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Vanquish will not cause you any pain. The device does not touch your body directly. Most patients report that it feels like a warming sensation or a heating pad. You may sweat a little.
What are the most common side effects?
Immediately after treatment, your skin will be warmer than usual and may be pink. The surface temperature of your skin will have been heated to above its normal temperature. The temperature of the skin will return to normal soon after treatment. Although uncommon, it is possible to have minor tender red areas.
Can I treat my thighs?
Absolutely, in a recent clinical study with Vanquish Flex, 40 patients showed an average of one inch reduction on each leg, over four treatments of 30 minutes per leg. Glenmore Healthcare is one of the few clinics in North America to have this new applicator specially designed to treat inner and outer thighs!
How should I prepare for treatment?
Patients should dress in lightweight, comfortable clothing or layers during colder weather. Because body temperature will increase during treatment, you may be more comfortable in a short sleeved or sleeveless top. We also advise patients to be well hydrated the day before treatment and the day of treatment. Drink one liter or 8 glasses of water the day before treatment, the day of treatment and two days following treatment.
Will there be any recovery time?
You can resume your normal activities after treatment, but it is advisable that you drink extra water.
How soon will I see results?
Some patients may begin to see results after their first treatment. However most patients typically report the greatest improvement within a few weeks after their last treatment.
