MDLSV offers the new Flex applicator from Vanquish

January 2015
Maryland Dermatology Laser Skin and Vein, one of the premier cosmetic dermatology practices in Maryland, will be one of only 7 sites in the entire United States to offer the brand-new Flex applicator for the well-known non-invasive fat reduction device Vanquish. Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to target and destroy fat cells, bringing about a reduction in waist circumference. The new Flex applicator allows for this proven technology to target the thighs, reducing saddlebags and slimming the entire circumference of the thigh in a painless and comfortable procedure.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to offer this innovative new technology at our practice,” said Dr. Robert Weiss, director of Maryland Dermatology Laser Skin and Vein. “The thighs are an area that many people wish to slim down, but there are few options to do so non-invasively. The Flex applicator for Vanquish is a great solution for women with saddlebags or thighs that rub together.”

The Flex applicator has had great success in Europe, and January of 2015 marks the first time it will be available for consumer use in America. It can be used on both the outer and inner thighs, providing full circumferential fat reduction and smoothing. Stubborn deposits of fat on the outer thighs, often called saddlebags, can be reduced, and the entire thigh can be smoothed and tightened, resulting in a younger, thinner thigh.

“Fatty deposits on the outer thighs can be extremely tough to get rid of,” explained Dr. Margaret Weiss, co-founder of MDLSV. “These stubborn areas are often passed down genetically and are resistant to diet and exercise. The Flex applicator can help people with these fatty areas who are hesitant to try more invasive methods of removal, such as surgery or liposuction.”

With the Flex applicator, there’s no need to undergo the discomfort and recovery time associated with surgery or liposuction. The procedure is a completely  noninvasive fat reduction procedure, and patients can relax with the comfortable applicator positioned around the thigh. The procedure takes only 30 minutes, and for full results, only four sessions in four weeks are required.

“The Flex applicator is the latest in noninvasive thigh slimming technology, and we are looking forward to being able to share this revolutionary device with our patients,” said Dr. Karen Beasley. “Slimmer thighs are just a quick, painless procedure away!”
