CoolSculpting vs. Vanquish

Posted on July 14, 2015 by Dr. Ringler

shutterstock2271385We often have patients ask what is the best non-surgical device we offer for fat reduction – CoolSculpting or Vanquish? Since we offer both CoolSculpting and Vanquish, let’s take the opportunity to compare the devices.

CoolSculpting is the older technology, and because we were the first plastic surgery office in Michigan to offer the treatment, we have seen many results over the past years, some favorable others less so. CoolSculpting is FDA cleared and uses “cryolipolisis” or fat freezing to target the fat cells. The CoolSculpting device works somewhat like a vacuum with paddles that suck the fat between the paddles. At first the device feels very…

Vanquish FLEX – A New Method of Contouring Thighs

Posted on May 5, 2015 by Dr. Ringler

71187630_20-1We’re excited to introduce Vanquish FLEX, a new non-surgical method of contouring thighs through radiofrequency technology. Many of our patients work hard at keeping in great shape, but are troubled by small areas of fat that are hard to reduce through diet and exercise alone. Areas of fat around the thighs can be particularly difficult to address with our existing non-surgical fat reducing technology: CoolSculpting and Vanquish.

The issue in treating the thigh area successfully in the past has been the configuration of the devices. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolisis to freeze fat, but requires the area to be pulled into the treatment paddles:…

Posted on January 12, 2015 by Dr. Ringler

CoolSculpting vs. VanquishAfter all the holiday consumption, January often finds people consumed with losing some of the extra fat they picked up from November to January. It is not surprising that January through March are a very busy times in our office for non-surgical fat reduction techniques Vanquish and CoolSculpting. But what, exactly, is the difference between the two procedures?

Vanquish Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

Posted on September 17, 2014 by Dr. Ringler

71187630_20-1We are happy to announce a newcomer in the non-surgical fat reduction arena; Vanquish by BTL Aesthetics. Unlike CoolSculpting, which reduces a very specific area of fat by freezing,  Vanquish utilizes multi-focused radio frequency technology to heat and reduce fat in a broader treatment area.  Vanquish is able to target fat beneath the skin and heat  it to 120 degrees while maintaining a temperature of 101 degrees on the surface of the skin.  FDA cleared for deep tissue heating, a known form of fat reduction, Vanquish destroys the fat cells which are later eliminated naturally through the body’s own metabolic process.

While not a replacement for weight loss, diet or exercise,…
