Vanquish™ is the first non-surgical device to melt away unwanted fat deposits around the mid-section and thighs that approaches liposuction results with no discomfort, incisions or down time
The Asarch Center for Dermatology, Laser and Mohs Surgery was the first medical office in Colorado to provide Vanquish for the mid-section and is the first to offer a fat reduction device designed specifically to target the thighs.
Asarch Center will be the first in Colorado to offer the brand-new Flex applicator for the well-known noninvasive fat reduction device Vanquish. Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to target and destroy fat cells, bringing about a reduction in waist circumference. The new Flex applicator allows for this proven technology to target the thighs, reducing saddlebags and slimming the entire circumference of the thigh in a painless and comfortable procedure.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to offer this innovative new technology at our practice,” said Dr. Richard Asarch. “To have a non-invasive alternative for treating saddlebags and thighs is a major advancement.”
The Flex applicator has had great success in Europe. It can be used on both the outer and inner thighs, providing full circumferential fat reduction and smoothing. Stubborn deposits of fat on the outer thighs, often called saddlebags, can be reduced, and the entire thigh can be smoothed and tightened, resulting in a younger, thinner thigh. The Flex applicator can help people with these fatty areas who are hesitant to try more invasive methods of removal, such as surgery or liposuction.
The procedure is a completely noninvasive fat reduction procedure and patients can relax with the comfortable applicator positioned around the thigh. The procedure takes only four 30-40 minutes sessions over four weeks.

What Is Vanquish? While several energy-based systems make the non-invasive claim, Vanquish™ has succeeded in creating a truly painless, effective fat reduction device. Vanquish device uses so-called “focused-field radio frequency” to zap fat without ever touching the patient’s body.
Why Vanquish? Vanquish is also the first device that can treat your abdomen and stubborn love handles all at the same time. And because the device kills fat cells themselves, not just the fat within cells, the results should be long lasting. The latest advances in Vanquish now allow for the treatment of the thigh and saddlebag areas.
What Should I Expect During the Procedure? The patient lies underneath a device that positions panels close to, but not touching, the abdomen and flanks or thighs and saddlebags depending on the requested treatement. Using radio-frequency waves, the device heats the skin to a surface temperature of 101 degrees while the underlying adipose tissue reaches 120 degrees. Patients have compared the feeling to sitting next to a radiator or under a sun lamp. The machine distinguishes between fat and muscle tissue; the RF waves do not penetrate deeply enough to affect any internal organs.
It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a maximum of an hour to perform the entire treatment session. The duration is dependent upon the concrete procedure and specific patient request.
It’s important to drink plenty of water for 24 hours before the procedure and for a couple of days afterward so your body can whisk away the destroyed fat cells through its normal processes.
What Results Can I Expect? You may start to see improvements of your appearance just days after your first treatment session. The treatments are effective even without a strict diet or exercise regimen. Your results will last as long as you maintain your current weight and healthy lifestyle.
Of 25 patients recently studied, all had visible results after the first treatment and, after the full course of four sessions, 59 percent of abdominal fat was destroyed, on average, resulting in a two-inch (and in a few cases, a three-inch) reduction in waist size. In clinical trials, the average loss in waist circumference was 2.23 inches with some patients reporting up to five inches lost after two months. It is truly a device that can change everything.
Am I a Good Candidate? The Vanquish candidate is fit, within 10 percent of her ideal weight and one whose weight does not fluctuate more than about 10 pounds in a year. “Vanquish is ideal for someone with stubborn areas that just do not respond to diet and exercise,” Dr. Asarch says.
What Are the Possible Side Effects? Although Vanquish heats the skin to 101 degrees, and the underlying fat to 120 degrees, the treatment “just feels warm”. There can be a few days of mild redness and swelling, but these side effects should have no direct impact on your everyday life. You can return to your daily routine right after the treatment. It is important to drink plenty of water before and after, which helps the body eliminate the dead fat cells. There have been no complaints of nerve pain, and no damage to the top and middle layers of skin, hair follicles, muscles, or internal organs.
