Fat removal is one of the key methodologies to help in reduction of extra weight and inches. The Vanquish Fat Removal method is an FDA approved treatment in which radio-frequency energy is used to help patients lose inches by literally vanquishing fat without touching the patient’s body. In this, the energy heats up the main fat layer, till the fat cells reach a therapeutic temperature after which they gradually decrease and die through the apoptosis process. This is done without affecting the surrounding non-fat tissue.
Other competitive techniques are Coolsculpt and Zerona, though they use different methodology for weight loss. They are also variants across multiple factors, mainly costs and success. Costs and success can be viewed in terms of time taken to show results and overall benefits, which can be seen in the short and long term.
Direct or short term costs and benefits:
Vanquish Fat Removal is comparable in terms of costs to Coolsculpt but both are costlier than Zerona. In terms of approximate costs and on an average scale, Vanquish costs $2,000 whereas Coolsculpt and Zerona are at $1,900 and $1,700 respectively though these costs may vary based on location and available offers.
In terms of success rates, Vanquish seems to be the most successful in terms of results on weight and inch loss among consumers followed by Coolsculpt which is not far behind. Zerona however seems to be the least successful of the lot. It does not need any pre preparation cost and time for the procedure to be conducted.
Vanquish takes 4-5 sessions of 30-45 minutes each for one person. Overall, the number of sessions and time per session and hence the total time taken for the entire procedure is fairly less compared to other methods while the results achieved is much better. Consumers needs can spend this time saved on more important activities. Vanquish also being 100% painless allows consumers to get back to their regular activities immediately after treatment than others.
Results are visible in the first few weeks itself unlike other methods which take much longer to show effect. Since the area affected is also much larger and even, it shows even results across than others which are more targeted to specific areas and hence may show different results on one consumer itself.
Also, Vanquish does not need multiple sessions beyond the 4 to 5 which is part of the process. Multiple sessions.
Indirect or long term costs and benefits:
The maintenance costs with Vanquish is also low since it does not need special diets and exercise to be followed separately which can be both time consuming and costly for consumers though it is good to do some exercise and diet just as a general rule.
The other hidden benefits of Vanquish which may also be common to other techniques are reduction in risks of lifestyle disorders like coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes etc.
