The Vanquish ME Laser works by using radiofrequency energy, that senses the fat levels in your body, which delivers a customized deep-tissue heating to eliminate fat. The deep-tissue heating in turn causes lipolysis, or the liquefaction of the targeted fat. Your body will naturally flush the dead fat cells, without the need for surgery.

Anyone who is in good health with minor excess weight is a good candidate for the Vanquish ME Laser. If dieting and exercising just aren’t working, and you can’t lose those last few inches this procedure may be for you.
The Vanquish ME Laser treats:
The Vanquish Laser is painless. In fact, the device doesn’t even touch your skin directly. You may feel a warming sensation that is comparable to a heating pad, which may make you sweat a little
|Surgical Liposuction||Vanquish ME|
How it Works
|An incision is made in the targeted area. The cannula, a long, sharp, hollow instrument attached to a vacuum, is inserted into the incisions and moved back and forth across the area to suck the fat out.||Radiofrequency energy is delivered on top of the skin to heat targeted fat cells, causing their death. Once the fat cells perish, they are flushed out by the body’s natural defenses. Healthy cells are left undamaged.|
|Anesthesia||Yes. Local or General.||No|
|Price||Upwards of $3,500, depending on the location of the facility and the surgeon’s fees.||There are no anesthesia or antibiotic fees so the cost of Vanquish ME is considerably less.|
|Areas Treated||Abdomen, love handles, back, buttocks, inner and outer thighs.||Abdomen, love handles, back, buttocks, arms, inner and outer thighs.|
|Risks||Seromas, unevenness, lumpiness and infection.||No side effects or risks.|
|Downtime||Most bruising and swelling resolves within 2 weeks.
Any remaining swelling and soreness may take 3-6 months to resolve.
|There is no downtime! You may resume all normal activity immediately after your treatment!|
|Results||Results are immediate as the fat has been forcibly removed.
Patients must wear compression garments and let the bruising and swelling subside before they can look good in normal clothing.
|Some patients report immediate results.
Results are progressive, which means they will become more and more apparent within the weeks following surgery as the body disposes of the treated fat cells.
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will be warm to the touch and may appear pink. The natural temperature of your skin will return shortly after your treatment. There is no downtime. You will be able to resume all normal activities immediately after your treatment.
We recommend you stay well hydrated before and the day of your appointment. You should drink 8 glasses of water the day before, the day of, and the two days following your procedure.
Some patients report improvement after their first treatment, but most find they experience the best results within a few weeks of their last treatment.
