Am I A Candidate For Vanquish ME Body Contouring?BTL VANQUISH ME treatments are designed for those who want to decrease the circumference of their abdomen and thighs – regardless of their BMI. The BTL VANQUISH ME is an option for those who desire aesthetic improvement without the cost and recovery time of surgery.
How Long Are The Treatments?Each treatment session is scheduled for 45 minutes to get the most of each session. It is recommended that patients undergo 4 treatments scheduled 1 week apart to achieve the desired results. More sessions may be needed on a case to case basis.
What Does It Feel Like?Comfort is the main advantage of BTL VANQUISH ME compared to some other shaping therapies. All you will typically feel is a warm sensation in the treated area (similar to sitting in the sun on a beach) which may last for a few hours post therapy. The treatment is performed in a lying position so you can easily relax during the procedure.
When Will I See Results?Many patients report changes as soon as 2 to 3 weeks after the first treatment, when their body starts to naturally eliminate disrupted fat cells. Optimal results can be usually seen after a couple of months.
What Are The Pre-Treatment Recommendations?Rest and beauty sleep. The BTL Vanquish/EXILIS is non-surgical, so you’ll be able to return to your normal, daily activities once the procedure is finished. It’s still important that you get enough rest and allow your body to rejuvenate after the procedure. This gives your body the time it needs to function normally again as it rids of the dead fat cells. Stay hydrated. It’s important to drink enough water to keep your body hydrated. As your body deposits all the dead fat cells, you’ll want to keep yourself replenished and hydrated as it goes through its natural processes. Make sure you come to your treatment hydrated and stay hydrated after it’s complete. Aim for 6-8 cups before your treatment. A few days before and after your treatment is even better. Promote the lymphatic drainage! Give the BTL Vanquish time. The results from the BTL Vanquish are not immediate. On average, it can take about three weeks to start noticing results, and a few months to notice the most dramatic results. During your wait period, it’s important to relax, continue your exercising, and maintain a healthy diet. Schedule a follow-up. Results will continue to be seen two months after your last treatment so we want to be able to show you your before and after photos, and we can also gauge the next course of action. You may need to continue treatments in the same area or other areas. Patients who have more than one treatment tend to see faster and greater results. It’s your goal, and we’re here to help you achieve the best results as much as we can! Don’t ditch your diet. Post BTL Vanquish treatments, don’t get caught in bad eating habits. Make sure you get proper rest, and work out as usual. We see many of our patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after a treatment. BTL Vanquish is excellent for fat reduction, but the maximum results will be achieved if you pair your treatment with a healthy lifestyle. Don’t fall victim to the idea “I can eat and do whatever I want.”.
What Are The Post-Treatment Recommendations?There isn't a lot of things you have to do post Vanquish ME. BUT, if you want to optimize your results, here are a few ideas to consider. 1- Sweat it out. Get your blood flow moving to enhance your lymphatic system. This will help to accelerate your weight loss results. 2- Infrared sauna's help to boost lymphatic flow. It's great for detoxification and purging the body of "extras" including the ruptured fat cells. Talk to your medical professional to ensure infrared is safe to use. 3- Keep hydrated. 4- Don't fall into bad eating habits. Healthy eating is still a super important aspect to body contouring therapy. Bad eating habits still promote fat gain. 5- Stay on your Vanquish ME schedule. Skipping weeks will delay results.

why laser hair removal (LHR)?
For many of us, unwanted hair growth is a daily chore that takes up time and energy and results in razor burn and cuts. Laser hair removal provides a solution to this problem by eliminating the need to shave, spend time looking for razors, and creating sensitive skin.
How Does LHR Work?
Kelowna laser hair removal means using advanced technology to permanently remove hair. This works differently than waxing or shaving because lasers target the hair follicle and stops its ability to continue to grow resulting in smooth and flawless skin. Because hair follicles all grow in cycles, it takes on average 6 treatments to see the best results but many people see great results in as little as one treatment.
At our Kelowna Skin Care Clinic, we a laser hair removal device that combines 3 wavelengths.
3 combined wavelengths covering the optimal treatment spectrum
Proven safety record
Safe for all skin types, even tanned skin
TRIO CLUSTERED DIODE TECHNOLOGY:
The Soprano ICE Platinum offers the synergistic benefits of the 3 most effective wavelengths for hair removal, each targeting different structures within the hair follicle. The 3 main anatomical targets include the Bulge, Bulb and Papilla. What does this mean? Better results in fewer sessions!
ALEX 755NM WAVELENGTH
For the widest range of hair types and color.
The Alexandrite wavelength offers more powerful energy absorption by the melanin chromophore,
making it ideal for the widest range of hair types and color- especially light-colored and thin hair. With more superficial penetration, the 755nm wavelength targets the Bulge of the hair follicle and is especially effective for superficially embedded hair in areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip.
SPEED 810NM WAVELENGTH:
Half the treatment time.
The classic wavelength in laser hair removal, the 810nm wavelength,offers deep penetration of the hair follicle with high average power, a high repetition rate and a large 2cm spot size for fast treatment. The 810nm has a moderate melanin absorption level making it safe for darker skin types. Its deep penetration capabilities target the Bulge and Bulb of the hair follicle while moderate tissue depth penetration makes it ideal for treating the arms, legs, cheeks and beard.
YAG 1064NM WAVELENGTH:
Specialized for darker skin types.
The YAG 1064 wavelength is characterized by lower melanin absorption, making it a focused solution for darker skin types.At the same time, the 1064nm offers the deepest penetration of the hair follicle, allowing it
to target the Bulb and Papilla, as well as treat deeply embedded hair in areas such as the scalp, arm pits and pubic areas. With higher water absorption generating a higher temperature, the incorporation of the
1064nm wavelength increases the thermal profile of the overall laser treatment for most effective hair removal.
