Energy boost

Aesthetic treatments using energy-based devices have grown rapidly over the past 20 years.

More recently, a combination of lasers and other heat-based energy sources have been used to target fat invasively. Many potential non-surgical patients, however, are waiting on the sidelines for an alternative that suits their needs.

Venus Concept clinical specialist Justina Augustaite says, “Today’s busy patients are looking for less invasive treatments with minimal downtime. In addition, we hear regular inquiries from patients searching for treatments that provide a more “natural-looking” result without undesirable surgical scars. A non-invasive hyperthermic method offers a highly desirable alternative to many patients unwilling or unable to undergo an invasive procedure.”

The Venus Bliss system is a new and exciting platform that brings an ideal combination of technologies to address the complex components of body aesthetics.

COMBINATION TECHNOLOGY

Venus Bliss includes three in-demand, effective technologies in one small footprint, providing options for treating your patients without added machines and no per-treatment cost to the provider.

Venus Bliss comes with four diode laser applicators that can be activated individually and placed in various configurations on a belt. With a wavelength of 1064nm and the skin-contact cooling mechanism, the Venus Bliss laser applicator energy is capable of effectively penetrating into the hypodermis to affect adipose tissue without harming the skin’s surface. Over time, the body is able to naturally process and eliminate the disrupted fat cells through the lymphatic system.

The (MP)2 applicator, powered by a combination of multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed electro-magnetic fields (PEMF), as well as VariPulse technology, allows patients a comprehensive body solution by tightening lax skin, leading to a more contoured appearance, as well as targeting cellulite on the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs for a smoother overall appearance. The delivery of the three into the tissue induces thermal and non-thermal tissue responses and furthers the removal of lymphatic waste, stimulates collagen production, and synthesizes angiogenesis.

MECHANISMS FOR SUCCESS

The Venus Bliss generates optical energy which is delivered to the subcutaneous layer of the tissue over a period of 25 minutes. The absorbed energy creates heat in the targeted subcutaneous tissue in the range of 42-46°C. Adipose cells are highly susceptible to temperature increases. It has been shown that a temperature increase of 6°C-7°C can affect the structural integrity of the fat cell and its cellular membrane.

Dr Suzanne Kilmer states, “At the beginning of each treatment, the applicators cool the skin without laser emission for 30 seconds to ensure patient comfort. Once the treatment is complete the patient can return to regular activities immediately and throughout the course of treatment process. It is recommended that a series of sessions is required to achieve an attractive aesthetical result. In conclusion the Venus Bliss system is a great technology to have in your arsenal to address the needs of every patients.”
