4 Common Myths About the BTL Vanquish
With the demand of non-invasive, fat-reducing procedures, it's important to understand what is true and what is a myth about the BTL Vanquish. Some common myths include:

- It's painful.
- You won't gain weight after your treatment.
Myths about the BTL Vanquish
As the BTL Vanquish becomes popular, there is no doubt there are myths floating around that are deceiving to future or existing patients. Before you decide if the BTL Vanquish is the treatment for you, you'll want to make sure you are expecting the correct results.
You can shed weight by the pounds
One of the biggest myths about the BTL Vanquish and fat reduction methods is that it can help you lose weight dramatically. In reality, the BTL Vanquish is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure and should not be used as a weight loss treatment. It's used to treat fat that's resistant to diet and exercise.
The BTL Vanquish can help reduce your waist measurement and lead to a more contoured, toned body. The actual number of pounds in "weight loss" it equates to is only about 1-2 pounds. The BTL Vanquish can help you look and feel better about your body by minimizing those pesky areas of fat that won't disappear with dieting or exercise.
It's a weight loss alternative
What some people might not know is there is a difference between weight loss and fat reduction. Weight loss causes your fat cells to shrink in size because of a balance between the calories you intake and the amount your burn with activity. The volume shrinks, but the number of cells stays the same.
Fat reduction happens when you use methods like the BTL Vanquish to disrupt cells and eliminate the number of fat cells in an area. This leads to a fewer number of cells that are gone for good.
Since the BTL Vanquish is a non-invasive procedure, it's relatively painless! You may feel a slight warmth for a few hours after the treatment. The best part about the BTL Vanquish compared to other fat reduction methods is that is completely contact-free. The machine does not touch your body, and you get to lay down through the entirety of the treatment. Not to mention there is no downtime, so you can return to daily activities.
You won't gain weight after your treatment
Your results from your BTL Vanquish treatment and their longevity will rely on you. How you treat your body after your procedure with proper dieting, eating, and/or exercise will determine whether or not the remaining cells in your body will increase in size.
Gaining weight is part of the natural growth processes in life, and we are constantly gaining and losing weight. To maintain the figure you've achieved, we suggest a healthy lifestyle, coming back for regular BTL Vanquish treatments.
