Reduce Love Handles, Flank & Belly Fat In New Jersey

While diet and exercise effectively work to improve health and reduce fat, the problem with these strategies is that they can't always get rid of fat everywhere. Despite your best efforts, stubborn pockets may remain, keeping you from enjoying sleek, slim contours. Vanquish ME at New Jersey's Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care is the solution for anyone looking to reduce their persistent love handles or belly fat—and to do so without incisions, injections, or downtime.

Vanquish ME, or simply Vanquish, removes fat cells by destroying them with heat. The process is quick and easy and leads to satisfying results. Because of its completely noninvasive application, it is often chosen by people who want to get rid of fat, but who want to avoid the surgical route offered by liposuction. Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care patients who choose the treatment say they enjoy that it is painless and provides fast results.

What is Vanquish?

Vanquish is a painless, nonsurgical body-contouring system that uses radiofrequency energy to reduce fat—especially the kind that resists exercise and dieting—and tighten lax skin. We use Vanquish to treat the stomach, love handles, and thighs. No downtime is necessary after a session.

Who is Vanquish For?

Because Vanquish is not a weight-loss or weight-management system, it is intended for healthy men and women who are at or near their ideal weight.


Vanquish results in fat destruction in the treated areas. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer contribute to a flabby appearance. This is in contrast to fat cells that shrink due to lifestyle changes, but that can return to a larger size given the opportunity. Once fat cells are destroyed, they cannot regenerate.

Vanquishâ„¢ is ideal for reducing fat at the midsection without surgery in New Jersey.
The Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care team uses the nonsurgical Vanquish at their New Jersey practice to destroy unwanted fat cells with heat. Areas to be treated include the abdomen (where a bulging belly can form) and flanks (prone to love handles).*


Vanquish is a sophisticated and technologically advanced system that can identify fatty tissue and specifically target it with thermal energy. When a significant amount of heat reaches the precisely chosen area, it triggers what is known as apoptosis, the scientific term for the process fat cells go through as they die off and are eliminated from the body. Surrounding tissues are left unharmed.


The Vanquish device is shaped like an arch, designed to surround a patient's midsection, covering but not touching the abdomen and both flanks. This allows for circumferential reduction, eliminating fat in a larger area to save time and yield consistent results. In fact, Vanquish has the largest treatment area of any device available today, making it a useful tool for anyone seeking to get a handle on their love handles—and muffin top, bulging waist, and thick thighs.

A single treatment session lasts about 45 minutes, during which the patient is required to do nothing more than lie on a table while the device does its work. Patients will feel some heat, as the radiofrequency energy heats the outer layer of skin to 101 degrees—the temperature of the water in a relaxing spa. The unwanted fat is raised to a temperature of 120 degrees, damaging the cells and triggering natural body processes that flush out the fat via the lymphatic system. Since there is no body contact with the device, patients who have received the treatment have described the sensation as similar to wearing a heating pad. No special recovery is necessary. Patients may experience some mild redness for up to several hours after their Vanquish visit, but this will fade. There is also occasionally some mild tenderness that will resolve after a few days as patients go about their typical daily activities.

Is the Procedure Painful?

Patients typically describe what they feel during a Vanquish treatment session as heat—and some even say it's relaxing. Though there are no post- surgical side effects to worry about, you may experience mild tenderness and redness in the treated area for a few days.

How Many Treatments Are Recommended?

Patients are recommended to complete four to six treatments in order to achieve their ideal results.


Patients usually start to notice improvement four to six weeks after their first session, and improvement continues four to six weeks after their last.

Vanquish is a radiofrequency device. Unlike many other fat-reducing devices which cannot tighten skin, radiofrequency energy is known to stimulate collagen, a beneficial protein found in healthy, youthful skin.

How Long Do Results Last?

The fat cells impacted by Vanquish are destroyed, so they will extremely unlikely to "grow back." That said, an effective diet and exercise regimen is the best approach for maintaining defined contours.

Since every patient is different, the Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care team will work with you during your consultation to determine the best course of action and scope of treatment necessary to give you the shapely new look you're aiming for. While Vanquish is the ideal treatment for many patients looking to lose unwanted belly fat, it is not the only option for changing body contours and getting a newer, slimmer shape.

While you are slimming down your belly and flanks, you may also want to reveal more defined contours on your face. Kybella® also destroys fat cells but does so by dissolving them with deoxycholic acid. This treatment is intended only for submental fat, which is the culprit behind the dreaded double chin.

Neither of these fat-reducing treatments should be chosen as a weight-loss method. They are for aesthetic contouring only.

Patients who have fat removed via Vanquish, Kybella®, and other methods are encouraged to eat well, exercise, and maintain their goal weight. Weight gain and the accumulation of fat in other areas is still possible.
