A fat treatment with Venus Bliss MAX™ shouldn’t be painful. You may feel a bit of heat and discomfort as the applicators activate, but it should still be manageable.


The area may look a little flushed and feel tender, and some patients may experience a little bit of swelling, firmness, or bruising. All of these are normal and common following an EMS treatment. The tenderness may take up to a week to resolve but it should be mild enough to not interfere with your daily activities. Of course, if something doesn’t feel quite right, always consult with your treatment provider.

There is no downtime and no physical restrictions that you need to worry about. You should be able to resume your regular daily activities immediately after completing an EMS treatment.
