All metal jewelry should be removed from the treatment area. In the 1-2 days prior to treatment, patients are requested to stay well hydrated. Patients should continue to drink appropriate amounts of water through the treatment day and even the day afterwards. Water helps to hydrate the skin. This allows the radiofrequency energy from Vanquish to travel easily through the skin and target the fat layer more effectively.
Patients should avoid dehydrating activities in the couple of days prior to treatment. This would include high-intensity, high-perspiration activities such as extensive aerobics, physical training, or hot yoga. Patients should also avoid excessive alcohol intake prior to Vanquish as this can have a dehydrating effect on the body.
