Localized fat and flaccidity are two very common problems that can be associated with being overweight. In many cases they are the result of unruly lifestyles, but in many others, they originate only through genetic or hereditary issues.

In these two situations we recommend: Vanquish, a non-invasive treatment for localized fat, which uses a patented technique of selective magnetic energy. In this way, it acts only on fat in a totally comfortable and painless way.

The magnetic energy generated allows the hypodermis, the area of ​​the skin where the adipocytes (fat cells) are located, to reach around 44-45 degrees centigrade. It is at this temperature that lipolysis occurs (the process by which the body uses fat for energy) and, therefore, a significant reduction in the amount of body fat.

It has no side effects, no pain, no cuts, no anesthesia and no recovery time. The differences are noticed right after the first session and the number of sessions required will be determined according to the assessment and initial diagnoses.

Session duration time: 45 m each zone

How many sessions: between 6 to 8 (* needs individual evaluation)

Recovery: immediate
