They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As a woman, I think we can all agree that sometimes that "eye" is a bit harsher on our bodies then we want it to be. It is not uncommon to stand in the mirror pinching your love handles and stubborn tummy fat—especially after having kids.

So, we hear ya ladies (and gents)! You can finally say "bye Felicia" to that stubborn fat that just won't go away no matter how many sit-ups you do. At Live Healthy MD we are now offering body sculpting with our BTL Vanquish machine! And no, Vanquish is NOT a weight loss program. 

What is Vanquish? 

BTL_Vanquish_MEHave you ever heard of CoolSculpting? Yeah, I thought so. CoolSculpting is the most common fat reduction treatment on the market. Yet, Vanquish is challenging that market standard. 

Vanquish is a contactless and non-invasive technology to eliminate fat cells and is primarily used to treat the abdomen and thighs. 

The BTL Vanquish machine uses radio frequency technology to heat your fat cells, resulting in a shrinkage and elimination of the fat cells all together! CoolSculpting on the other hand freezes these fat cells. Over time, both procedures will rid the body of these dead fat cells, however in an FDA study, Vanquish destroyed 5 to 10% more fat cells than CoolSculpting.


If we have already sold you on Vanquish, you are in luck because we do offer this at our Augusta Live Healthy MD office! We recommend 4 to 6 sessions, scheduled a week apart from each other. Treatments last a total of 45 minutes per session. 

Vanquish-Me-1During the treatments, you will be required to remove all metal and will be unable to have your phone in hand, which means this a great time for a nap! You will be placed in a separate, quiet room with a nurse checking in every 15 minutes to ensure your are comfortable. 

Since the Vanquish machine does heat up, some individuals have complained of discomfort. However, if you are adequately hydrated (meaning you drink water more than just the day of treatment) then the treatments will not be bothersome. 

Benefits of Vanquish 

Vanquish is the only body sculpting technique that does not come in contact with the patient during treatments. Similarly, there is no recovery time after each treatment—meaning you can enjoy your day as normal after your treatment sessions. Vanquish also treats the largest area of fat per session compared to its competitors.

At Live Healthy MD, we offer the best pricing within the CSRA. Whereas most CoolSculpting treatments cost an average of $800 per treatment (depending on your location and your individual circumstances), Vanquish at Live Healthy MD is $150 per session.

Results can be seen within 2 weeks from your first treatment. However it will take about 2 to 4 months to see noticeable results. For CoolSculpting, patients will notice their results 3 to 4 months after the last treatment. 

On average, people will lose 2 inches but we have seen someone lose up to 4 inches off their circumference.
