BTL Vanquish, referred to primarily as “Vanquish,” is a very recent FDA cleared device for body contouring. It is considered an alternative to plastic surgery, and like its competitors- CoolSculpting ® and UltraShape- Vanquish is 100% free of surgery, with no recovery time or long term risks.
Vanquish by BTL Aesthetics is an interesting new technology. Like several other products that are currently being explored for fat loss and body contouring, Vanquish is a heat based fat reduction tool that uses thermal energy to break down fat beneath the skin, causing the fat cells to permanently rupture and get removed by the body naturally.
Vanquish is a popular new technology, and since it was FDA cleared, it has been spreading around the Orange County / Southern California area quickly.
It is praised a great deal for its comfort. The Vanquish technology provides a much more gentle warming sensation than other heat based body contouring products. Some even say it is slightly more comfortable than CoolSculpting ®, although CoolSculpting ® does have a very high comfort rating as well. It also holds a positive approval rating on the plastic surgery review site RealSelf.
At the Aesthetic Center of Orange County, we carry a variety of non-invasive body contouring options. We are also paying close attention to Vanquish, but we have decided that at the moment it is not an option that we want to carry in our office for several reasons:
This is not to say that Vanquish isn’t a good choice for your body contouring needs. Only that there are simply more reasons to prefer other forms of technology, such as CoolSculpting ® and UltraShape, that all have more scientific evidence, similar or better results, and greater control over the areas that are targeted.
As more information comes out about Vanquish technology, we’ll continue to monitor them and see if they are right for our clients, and provide as useful or better body contouring options than those that are currently available. Vanquish is not quite at the point of consideration of our practice.
