Safe fat removal with Vanquish™ in Washington

safe fat removal with vanquish from dermatologist in washington

Patients in the Washington area who are interested in safe fat removal without liposuction may want to speak with their dermatologist about Vanquish™. This state-of-the-art treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat the layers of the skin for deep penetration, destroying fat cells, stimulating collagen production, contouring the body, and tightening the skin. All of this can happen in just a few treatments at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery.

before and after safe fat removal with vanquish from dermatologist in washingtonDr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who believes in providing her patients with quality services that offer less invasive ways of addressing problem areas of the body including unwanted fat and aging skin. With Vanquish™, patients can enjoy the results without having to deal with healing, downtime, and going under the knife. Plastic surgery is a last resort for severe cases and it should only be considered when other options have been tried. Plastic surgeries can be expensive, though the results are incredibly dramatic. In most cases, patients want gradual results to avoid the look of having had “work done” and love the fact that the results show over the course of several weeks, even months.

Patients can enjoy safe fat removal with Vanquish™ in Washington, a treatment that has been FDA approved for the use of fat removal, body contouring, and wrinkle reduction. This procedure uses a device that does not touch the skin and administers heat, which damages the fat cells and helps in stimulating collagen. Most treatment sessions last approximately 45 minutes unless multiple areas are being treated in the same appointment. Then patients can expect longer wait times while the radio frequency energy targets the fat and improves the skin from the inside out!

Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a quality, board certified dermatologist is the Medical Director for the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, a cutting-edge dermatology practice. She is excited to offer her patients Vanquish™ along with many other medical and cosmetic dermatology procedures including laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and injectables.
