Brief Summary:
Open-label, baseline-controlled, multi-center study evaluating a 1064 nm diode laser, pulsed electromagnetic fields and vacuum assisted radio frequency for non-invasive fat reduction of the abdomen and flanks.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Subcutaneous Fat Disorder Device: Venus Bliss Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The study will enroll up to 200 subjects requesting non-invasive lipolysis of the abdomen and flanks. Each subject will receive up to 3 study treatments of the diode laser and up to 3 treatments of the pulsed electromagnetic fields and vacuum assisted radio frequency study treatments. Subjects will be followed at 24 weeks post diode treatments to observe their satisfaction with treatment outcomes.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Patient Treatment Group
Up to three Diode and Radio Frequency treatments and up to three additional radio frequency treatments will be performed per patient at the discretion of the principal investigator. Diode treatments will be spaced six weeks apart while the radio frequency treatments will be spaced between 2-3 weeks apart.
Device: Venus Bliss
The investigational device (Venus Bliss™) is a non-invasive medical aesthetic device designed for body contouring. The device is comprised of a console, four 1064 nm diode laser applicators (60 mm x 60 mm). A belt is included to allow the operator to secure the laser applicators on the lipolysis treatment area, allowing hands free operation. The device uses vacuum assisted radiofrequency (RF) and PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) technology which has been shown in clinical studies to be safe and effective in body circumferential reduction and skin tightening.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patient Overall Satisfaction [ Time Frame: Week 26 ]
    Patients rate their satisfaction with treatment outcomes at the final follow up visit using a patient survey by answering 12 questions

  2. Patient Treatment Satisfaction [ Time Frame: Week 26 ]
    Patients rate their treatment satisfaction using a 5 point Likert Scale. The Likert scale ranges from 1 = very unsatisfied 2 = unsatisfied 3 = neutral 4 = satisfied 5 = very satisfied
