Venus Bliss™ Cellulite Reduction
Cellulite is much more common than you'd think. It impacts as many as 90% of women at some point in their lifetime, often due to hormonal changes, genetics, diet and other lifestyle factors.
But as common as it is, cellulite is not something you have to live with!
Venus Concept's MP2 non-surgical cellulite reduction treatments use advanced multi-polar radiofrequency technology to safely target and shrink cellulite and underlying fat cells, while boosting collagen production to improve the appearance of bumps and dimpling. These treatments are very comfortable and can be customized to target cellulite and/or laxity at any stage with no downtime.
Venus Bliss Cellulite Reduction FAQs
Venus Bliss Cellulite Reduction
Am I a good candidate for this treatment? Will this treatment work for me?
The best candidate for the Venus Bliss MP2 treatment is someone who has pockets of cellulite and/or excess body fat that they can’t get rid of with diet and exercise alone, but who doesn’t want surgery, or someone who has mild to moderate laxity and is seeking to tighten and smooth a specific area.
For safety reasons, the following conditions are treatment restrictions:
- Active inflammation, irritation and/or infection in the treatment area, including sunburn
- Current treatment or history of cancer
- A degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease around the treatment area that’s stimulated by heat (e.g. herpes)
- An internal defibrillator/pacemaker
- Metal implants (excluding dental) in the treatment area
- Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder
- Varicose veins
- Pregnant or are undergoing an IVF procedure
- Skin-related autoimmune diseases
- Silicone implants and/or silicone injections in the treatment area
- Excessive skin and/or severe laxity in the area to be treated
I have darker skin. Can I still get this treatment done?
Yes. Venus Concept’s MP2 cellulite/tightening treatments use technology that is safe for every skin tone.
How long does each treatment take?
Venus Bliss Cellulite/Tightening Treatments are generally quick and easy, and in some cases, they can even be done on your lunch break! Exact treatment times will vary depending on the patient and the size of area to be treated.
Depending on the size of the area to be treated, proper clinical endpoint is typically reached within 15-20 minutes, and the maximum time we will book for any single appointment is 60 minutes. Therefore, if you wish to treat multiple areas, we may need to split up the sessions. During your initial consultation, your technician will assess your individual treatment needs and provide your estimated total treatment time.
What body areas can be treated?
The Venus Bliss MP2 can be used to smooth cellulite and tighten laxity in the areas of the abdomen, arms, back/bra line, buttocks, flanks, knees and thighs.
Can I treat multiple areas in a single visit?
Yes, it is perfectly safe and clearly convenient to have multiple areas treated within the same day. However, each area requires an allotted amount of time for proper treatment, so patients treating more than one should plan accordingly for a longer overall treatment time. Our maximum treatment time per session is 60 minutes total, so your technician will advise on how many areas we will be able to fit in for you per visit.
How many sessions will I need to see results?
The smoothing of cellulite and/or the tightening of skin are cumulative processes that take place over time. Therefore, a series of treatments is required in order to achieve results. Most patients should expect to receive 6-10 treatments per area with minimal maintenance thereafter. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
Most patients begin to see some overall improvement after they’ve received 3-4 treatments (i.e. 3-4 weeks).
How often/far apart should the treatments be?
For best results, cellulite/tightening treatments should be done once a week during the primary course of treatment.
After a series of treatments is completed, patients will be at the maintenance level for that particular area. While the need for maintenance sessions will vary between individual patients, patients should generally expect to receive treatment once every 1-3 months to retain optimal results.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
Before a Venus Bliss treatment can be scheduled and/or received, you must first have a mandatory consultation with one of our trained and certified Medical Aestheticians where key factors such as specific treatment area(s), current BMI, lifestyle and realistic expectations will be assessed. Once a full evaluation has been made and you have been identified as a suitable candidate for treatment, you may proceed onto treatment.
On the days of your actual treatments, simply make sure that your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup to the treatment area(s) prior to your session, and remove all jewelry around the area being treated.
What is the science behind this treatment? How does it work?
The Venus Bliss Cellulite Reduction/Tightening Treatments are performed using their patented MP2 hand-piece. This advanced technology delivers both multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic energy deep into the dermal layers. The applied energy raises the internal temperature of the treated area to a therapeutic level of 41-45° C, which stimulates improved circulation and collagen production and also causes mild lipolysis as some of the fat cells are gradually emptied and flattened. Ideally the VariPulse feature will also be used to lightly suction and massage the area as it gently breaks up dimpled pockets of fibrous connective tissue. Released fats, fluids and toxins will be flushed out naturally through the lymphatic system. Over time, the combination of these technologies will smooth and rejuvenate uneven pockets of tissue as well as minimize subcutaneous fatty deposits resulting in a more sculpted and refined appearance. Once bumpy and unsightly areas of cellulite as well as crepey or wrinkled areas of laxity will appear smoother, tighter and more radiant.
Will I experienced immediate results? Are results permanent?
Most patients begin to see some overall improvement after they’ve received 3-4 treatments (i.e. 3-4 weeks).
Cellulite reduction/tightening treatments are cumulative, so overall results will build over time as you go through your initial series of sessions. After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve for up to 3-4 months. In order to keep the area smooth and sculpted, maintenance treatments will be needed either once a month or every 3-4 months, depending on the person.
How are results determined?
The clinical expectation of the Venus Bliss MP2 treatment is to smooth and tighten areas of cellulite and laxity. The best method to determine textural change is with the use of incremental photos.
Prior to your first treatment, precise pictures of the treatment area(s) will be taken and kept on file in order to track and record your personal progress. Additional photos will be likely be taken halfway through your course of treatment and at the end of your course of treatment as well as anywhere from 8-12 weeks after your final treatment.
Are results guaranteed?
As is the case with any other elective cosmetic procedure, results of the Venus Bliss cannot be guaranteed.
Each patient has their own unique body chemistry and composition making it impossible to predict or control a precise response or outcome. Ultimately results will be affected by a vast number of intangible and immeasurable factors, which include but are not limited to: age, skin laxity, lifestyle, smoking, alcohol consumption, chronic dehydration, poor diet, weight loss or gain, etc.
What does the treatment feel like?
During the first few minutes of treatment, the MP2 hand-piece will slowly get warmer as your technician works to get the tissue to the required clinical temperature. For the duration of treatment, your technician will keep the MP2 hand-piece in constant motion over the treatment area as they seek to maintain the optimal temperature range to ensure peak efficacy. If you feel that it’s too hot, just let your technician know, and they can easily lower the temperature a bit. If the technician is using the VariPulse™ feature, you will also feel a gentle suction on your skin, like a very low-power vacuum, as the applicator moves around the area. This can also be lowered if needed.
Will it be painful?
Venus Concept’s cellulite/tightening treatments are generally very comfortable, especially since the level of heat and suction can easily be adjusted at any time to suit you. Most patients find the treatments rather soothing and describe them as feeling like a warm massage.
How will I feel after my treatment?
You’ll feel relaxed. Most patients find the treatment quite comfortable and soothing, and some patients have even fallen asleep during their session. The area may feel warm to the touch, but other than that, you’ll feel perfectly normal.
Will I experience any downtime?
Venus cellulite reduction/tightening treatments require absolutely no downtime. The treatment area may look a little flushed and warm to the touch, but this will go away within 1-2 hours. Immediately after your session, you can return to your normal daily activities. This includes the application of lotion.
Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
No, you do not need to do anything after your treatment. However, patients should drink plenty of water and other hydrating fluids as maintaining a high level of hydration will optimize your body’s ability to process the effects of the treatment through the lymphatic system.
Is there anything I can do to enhance my results?
To enhance potential results, a healthy diet and active lifestyle are highly recommended. Alternately, it stands to reason that weight gain may diminish the potential for best results.
Also very helpful, is assisting optimal function of the lymphatic system by maintaining peak hydration as well as stimulating it with lymphatic massage and/or vibration. For this reason, after each treatment, we offer an optional 10minute session on our in-house vibration plate at no additional charge.
Lastly, Maintenance Treatments spaced every 1-3 months or as needed will, of course, assist in retaining long-term results.
