Home / Blog / Frequently Asked Questions: Vanquish Fat Removal
What is Vanquish and how does it work?
Vanquish is the latest FDA approved radio frequency device that melts the fat between the skin and the muscle layer. It heats it up to about 120 degrees and destroys the fat cell permanently. It’s a non-invasive non-surgical technology specifically designed to redefine your core.
Vanquish vs. CoolSculpting, what’s the best?
They both eliminate fat cells, however, CoolSculpting panels come in direct contact with the skin and can lead to some discomfort, whereas Vanquish panels don’t come in contact with the skin making treatments a lot more comfortable. CoolSculpting can take an hour per localize area and Vanquish only takes 45 minutes as it covers a larger area all at once.

Vanquish treats the problematic midsection by targeting deep tissue layers without damage to your skin or surrounding muscle tissue.
