Laser fat removal is a groundbreaking, non-invasive technique for removing unwanted fat deposits around your thighs, arms, hips — nearly any part of the body where you have difficulty reducing fat. Emerald Laser body sculpting is a safe, effective, FDA-cleared fat reduction process that usually takes less than 30 minutes per session.
Emerald Laser body sculpting is a system of ten 532-nanometer lasers designed to decrease fat in targeted areas of the body. It is named “emerald” due to the green hue of the laser beams.
When the lasers target a group of fat cells, they penetrate down to the fat cell wall, boring tiny pores into its surface. At the same time, they emulsify (melt) the fats inside of the cell. This permits the fats to pass through the pores, where the body’s lymphatic system naturally disposes of them.
The process occurs gradually over the course of about four weeks per treatment. Because there is no pain with the Emerald System and it has no side effects or downtime, patients can continue with their everyday routines immediately after treatment.
Emerald Laser is a non-invasive medical procedure that involves targeting fat cells beneath the skin. Consequently, it does not require incisions or injections. Unlike lipoplasty or liposuction, there is no need to wait for your incisions to heal because there are no incisions.
Most other invasive or minimally invasive procedures involve some degree of pain. Laser sculpting does not involve pain. Most people feel nothing, and the few who do, only experience minor tingling.
Laser lipo is fast enough to be completed inside of a half-hour. That means you can make your Emerald laser appointment before or after work or during your lunch break. When you’re done, you can get dressed and resume your normal activities or even go exercise if you choose to.
Erchonia, the developer of Emerald Laser, is a pioneer in the laser lipolysis industry. Their green laser has undergone multiple clinical studies that proved not only that it was safe but also that it was effective. Emerald Laser is the only device cleared by the FDA to treat individuals with a BMI over 30.
Unlike liposuction or fat freezing (cryolipolysis), laser lipo empties the fat cells but doesn’t destroy them. This is an important distinction between cold-laser sculpting and some of the competitors. While killing fat cells may sound like a permanent solution to fat accumulation, it can be dangerous.
