DC area dermatologist describes how the Vanquish system works to remove fat

Vanquish treatment from dermatologist in washington

Diet and exercise can only do so much for DC patients who are interested in removing unwanted fat on their bodies. Dr. Cheryl Burgess, a board certified dermatologist, understands that some areas of stubborn fat may be difficult to remove. However, she also knows that plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks may not always be viable solutions for patients who are seeking a less invasive option that does not leave scarring and imperfections, and something that doesn’t require extensive downtime and healing. This is when patients may be introduced to a system known as Vanquish.

before and after safe fat removal with vanquish from dermatologist in washington case 1Vanquish is a device that is used to reduce fat in specific areas of the body without surgery. It is a non-invasive way for patients to enjoy better body contours without needing to go “under the knife.” Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a quality, comprehensive dermatologist who encourages patients to learn about this revolutionary method for improving the body.

Vanquish uses a special panel that never touches the skin. It has minimal side effects, with most patients dealing with mild issues such as a warming sensation on the skin. The treatment never requires patients to have surgical tools touch their skin during Vanquish treatments. This is a highly desirable method for patients who want to avoid surgical procedures but want to achieve a more attractive body contour.

Vanquish is FDA approved to provide exceptional results, and many patients will be able to see results after several treatments. Our team recommends that most patients schedule approximately four treatments to start, each around 45 minutes, and we will determine if this is an appropriate amount for desirable results. Most patients will be able to achieve dramatic changes in just a few sessions and enjoy their changing body.

Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery encourages patients to educate themselves further on the advantages of Vanquish services used for enhancing the body’s natural curves and taking several inches off the waistline using technology like never before!
