a Czech-based company is planning to release a device which can “target and eliminate fat without ever touching the patient’s body.” The new technolgy relies on deep tissue RF heating, which has shown to have little to no side effects after preliminary tests were performed at the Maryland Laser Skin and Vein Institute.
The Vanquish Fat Removal machine uses “focused-field radio frequency,” from movable panels that are positioned around the patient’s body in relation to where the fat needs to be removed. Electronic sensors built into the device measure the amount of body fat present and determine the amount of energy needed to heat it. The treatment is delivered in four 30-minute increments spread out over the course of a month and typical cost is estimated to be around $2,000.
A recent Allure article reported visible results for all 25 test study participants after the first session and an average waistline reduction of two inches upon treatment completion with little to no side effects. The best part? Vanquish claims it actually kills fat cells, not just the fat inside the cells, so results are expected to be long lasting.
