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 (PMF) treatment on circumference reduction.

Study summary:

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 sex consecutive weeks. There will be a one month follow up which will occur 4 weeks after the 6th treatment. 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 visit. 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.
