We are fielding questions about Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH), in light of Linda Evangelista’s Instagram post and recent article in People Magazine on her negative Cryolipolysis treatment experience, that has left her in pain and deformed. As a result, we are sharing some basic information with you that will inform you about procedures, specifically, VanquishME, the fat reduction treatment we perform at Tighten & Tone LV.
What is PAH?
Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia causes an enlargement of the treated region. It occurs when the the freezing of fat cells activates a reaction in the fatty tissue thickening and expanding fat cells, opposed to breaking them down. PAH typically cannot be confirmed until about 6 months post-procedure and has been found as an adverse result in treatments such as Cryolipolysis. While PAH is a rare adverse effect, it has been connected to the freezing of fat cells. Most notably, patients complain they are experiencing an enlargement in the treatment area in the exact shape of the applicator.
Advantages of choosing VanquishME:
🧡 In a recent report from BTL Aesthetics, VanquishME patients report up to a 59% fat reduction at the treatment site.
🧡 Treatment areas are not left looking uneven or even lumpy. VanquishME treats entire areas at one time which helps ensure a smoother, even result.
🧡 VanquishME treatments are 45 mins. per session.
🧡 Patients prefer the warm sensation of VanquishME. Some of our patients are comfortable enough to even fall asleep.
🧡 VanquishME hovers over the treated area without direct skin contact. No skin tugging or numbness.
Always be as informed as possible about any body aesthetic treatments or procedures you undergo. Anyone treating you should be thoroughly trained, certified and/or licensed, as required. You should never feel a “hard sell” when you are determining what is best for you and your body.
