Vanquish Treatments

Vanquish Fat Reduction Albuquerque

Vanquish is the first non-invasive body contouring treatment to use “focused-field radio frequency” to painlessly and permanently destroy fat without even touching your body.*

However, truthfully, we have found that our other fat reduction options tend to provide better results (the Coolsculpting and Ultrashape for fat reduction and the VaserShape for skin tightening). We can discuss all of this, of course, during your free consultation (or, you can text us, 505-888-3733, or email Dr. Chavez,, anytime!)


How does Vanquish work?

While only raising the temperature of your skin a few degrees (in general), the focused radio frequency allows the underlying fat cells to heat to 120 degrees, which destroys them. The surrounding tissues are not affected. There is generally no discomfort (it feels like a warm blanket). Because the fat cells themselves are destroyed (not just the fat inside the cells), the results are permanent. Vanquish is also unique in the sense that the sensors in the device actually “read” each patient’s body fat mass to deliver the amount of energy needed during each 30-minute treatment. We get real time readings of the energy delivered into the fat cells, and can adjust the settings as necessary, during the treatment, to increase the effectiveness of each treatment!*

How often do I need a Vanquish treatment to get results?

Most patients begin to see results even after the first treatment (although not “spectacular”!) Most complete a series of four 30-minute sessions, which are scheduled one week apart. In our experience, the average person will lose up to 1-2 inches after the fourth treatment. Some clients choose to do additional treatments, which provide even more reduction, with no additional risk.*

Do Vanquish treatments hurt?

No. Our patients say a Vanquish treatment feels like the application of a heating pad. However, every now and then clients will get a “hot spot” where they feel a tingling/burning in one area. This is often from slight moisture on the skin. We wipe the skin and reposition the radio frequency panels, and any minimal discomfort is gone (within seconds!)*

What are the most common side effects?

Right after your treatment, you’ll notice that your skin is warmer than usual and may be a bit pink in the treated area(s). This is normal, as the surface of your skin was heated during treatment. Your skin’s temperature will go back to normal within a few minutes after treatment. Some clients have a small area of minor tenderness, redness, and can sometimes feel a slight hardening in that area (usually where they had a “hot spot”.) This is not common, but if it does, it’s nothing to worry about. This is simply inflammation of the underlying fat cells (so, you’ll at least be assured the fat is getting “zapped”!) Skin blisters can rarely occur, but we have never seen this in our office.*

How should I prepare for my Vanquish treatment?

VERY IMPORTANT: Drink at least 64 oz of water (~4 bottles, generally) the day before, the day of, and the day after your treatment. It is very important to be well hydrated. The hydrated cells act like somewhat of a “magnifying lens” to focus the energy into the fat cell where we want it! We also recommend that you come for your Vanquish treatment in comfortable clothing. You’ll feel some warmth during the treatment, but we use a fan (and a/c!) to make sure you’re comfortable! You may need to remove your jewelry or other metallic objects (belts, etc.)*

What is the recovery time after a Vanquish treatment?

You can go back to your schedule right after treatment! There are no limitations to your regular activities or exercise!
