Official Title

Clinical Evaluation of Venus Versa Octipolar Applicator for Reduction of Abdomen Circumference

Brief Summary

      The octipolar applicator is intended for circumference reduction treatment by reduction of
      adipose size and enhancement of collagen synthesis as the result thermal and non-thermal
      collagen stimulation. This trial is intended to evaluate the effect of radio frequency (RF)
      and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) treatment on circumference reduction.

Detailed Description

      This is a multi-site, prospective, controlled, randomized, double blinded clinical trial.
      This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a series of treatments using
      the Venus Versa Octipolar applicator. Up to 60 healthy subjects at 10 sites shall be
      recruited by the investigator from within the investigator's subject population. Subjects
      shall have abdomen circumference to reduce for the designated treatment area.

      Each subject will undergo 6 treatments at an interval of one treatment per week for six
      consecutive weeks. There will be a one month follow up which will occur 4 weeks after the 6th

      At the first treatment visit, the investigator will collect demographic and medical
      information and randomization will take place. Subjects have an equal opportunity to be
      selected for the treatment or the control group.

      The duration of the treatment session will be approximately 60 minutes. Expected immediate
      response includes temporary mild to moderate erythema and/or edema. Skin safety assessments
      will be conducted by the investigator after each treatment session and at the follow-up

      Photography will be conducted at baseline, the beginning of 4th & 6th treatment and at 1
      month follow up visit. Subjects will be asked to complete a questionnaire after each
      treatment and at the one month follow up visit.

      Circumference measurements will be conducted at base line, before each treatment and at
      follow up visit. The treatment will be considered successful if the treated area
      circumference, reduces by at least 2.5 cm.
