Abdominal fat reduction achieved via BTL Vanquish and Vanquish ME lasts for at least four years, according to new long-term data released by the company.
Both devices use radiofrequency (RF) energy to reduce fat.
The study evaluated 13 individuals who received the BTL Vanquish treatment four years (+60 days) prior, utilizing the same measurement markers as those at the 1-month follow-up visit in the original Journal of Drugs and Dermatology study. Patients preserved an average 75.2 percent of the original body contouring effect four years post treatment series as demonstrated by abdominal circumferential reduction.
While the treatments cannot prevent any future weight gains, the data showed sustained treatment results and no long-term side effects.
"We're thrilled to have this four-year follow-up data, as most clinical studies only incorporate evaluations 3-12 months following the procedure, and has remained the industry standard for post-treatment assessment,” says Tomas Boleslavsky of BTL Aesthetics, in a news release.
