For years, men and women alike have sought an effective way to reduce stubborn fat without surgery. Finally, Vanquish is the liposuction alternative that many of our Toronto-area patients have waited for. Not only is the procedure non-surgical, it doesn’t make any physical contact with the skin at all — ensuring a comfortable procedure and no downtime.
Get to KnowDr. Bertucci
As a globally renowned, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Vince Bertucci has devoted his career to enriching the lives of people from all walks of life.

He welcomes each visitor with an a detailed consultation process and works collaboratively with them to develop a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan.
Vanquish is an effective, non-surgical option for fat reduction that uses radiofrequency energy to destroy unwanted fat. The Vanquish procedure is performed in-office, requires no anesthesia, and is completely non-invasive. Best of all, Vanquish doesn’t require any downtime after a treatment, which means that you can return to your regular activities as soon as you leave our clinic.
How Does It Work?
Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to selectively heat unwanted fat cells. Once these fat cells are heated to the appropriate temperature, they die in a natural process called apoptosis. Vanquish is completely non-invasive – in fact, the device doesn’t make any direct contact with your body at all. Instead, it’s passed over your treatment area without touching it.
Is Vanquish Right for Me?
Vanquish is an excellent option for men and women who are frustrated by stubborn fat deposits, especially around their abdomen and thighs. Keep in mind that, like other cosmetic body contouring procedures, Vanquish is not intended to be a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise. Although it won’t create large-volume weight loss, it is indicated for localized areas of unwanted fat such as the abdomen, flanks, love handles, and more. Vanquish is especially preferred by people who are attracted to the targeted fat reduction offered by liposuction but deterred by the downtime and potential risks of surgery. Depending on your specific aesthetic goals, your practitioner may recommend another treatment, such as Liposonix®, to give you the results you want.
What Can I Expect?
Vanquish is performed in our clinic. You will recline on the treatment table while the practitioner calibrates the Vanquish device based on your individual needs. Your practitioner slowly passes the Vanquish device over your treatment area. During this time, it emits invisible radiofrequency energy to your fat cells, leaving skin, muscle, and other essential tissue unaffected. Each treatment lasts for about 45 minutes, during which time you will note a warm sensation over your treatment area. No anesthesia is required. Immediately after your treatment, you may return to your regular daily activities.
Keep in mind that the results created by Vanquish are not immediate and that it takes about 4 sessions to see results. Depending on your needs, your practitioner may recommend more or less treatments spaced weeks apart. As the weeks progress after treatment, you’ll continue to enjoy more significant results. By following a healthy lifestyle, you can maintain your results indefinitely.
