Another aspect of the treatment that makes Vanquish ME unique is that no handheld tools are necessary, and the machine does not touch the body at all. The procedure works via a harness system that wraps around the core. Clients are completely comfortable during their treatment and the radiofrequency energy does not affect the skin or other tissues, only fat. Virtually anyone interested in safely reducing fat without surgery might be a good candidate for Vanquish ME.


  • Clients with a BMI below or above 30 benefit from this treatment
  • There is zero discomfort since no handheld devices touch the body
  • Up to 20 percent circumferential reduction
  • There is no downtime


Vanquish ME is best suited for those with larger areas of fat that need to be treated. Although Vanquish ME is still considered a contouring and sculpting treatment, not a weight loss procedure, it has the ability to remove larger amounts of fat than some of its sculpting counterparts. Results from Vanquish ME are not immediate, but clients do start to see results a few weeks after their initial session.

The fat cells are immediately destroyed, but the body requires some time to safely absorb and expel them through the natural metabolism process. When this happens, it is the lymphatic system that eliminates fat cells via waste. A slower reduction in fat cells helps the skin adjust to the newer, more slender you, which drastically decreases any risk of skin laxity from occurring (which is common with liposuction).


Vanquish ME has been shown to “melt” away several inches from the body, quickly reducing a person’s pant or dress size. Fat cells are heated to 120 degrees, the ultimate level needed to destroy them. However, the surrounding tissue and skin is kept to a comfortable 101 degrees, which is cooler than the average heated yoga class. This means there is no risk of suffering burns.

Vanquish ME FAQs

What are the contraindications to Vanquish ME treatment?

Patients that have electrical implantable devices like pacemaker or internal defibrillator, patients with Copper IUD (Mirena is OK) or any other metal implants in the treatment area not candidates for this treatment.

How many Vanquish ME treatments will I need?

Most clients require 4-6 sessions per treatment site depending on the amount of fat and their goals. Treatments take 30 – 45 minutes on average. A minimum of one week is required between sessions in order to achieve the best results.

Can Vanquish ME be applied anywhere on the body?

Almost! Vanquish ME can be used on the most common parts of the body that hold excess fat including the abdomen, and inner and outer thighs.

Can the fat come back following Vanquish ME treatment?

Not exactly. Once fat cells are removed from the body in any capacity, whether from Vanquish ME or CoolSculpting for example, they are gone for good. Diet and exercise simply shrink fat cells, but Vanquish ME actually removes them from the body. However, it is still possible to gain weight after Vanquish ME because other, nearby fat cells can increase in size. A healthy diet and exercise are important at all times, including after Vanquish ME.
