what is emerald laser?
Emerald Laser 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.

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 by Erchonia is a safe, effective, FDA-cleared fat reduction process that usually takes less than 30 minutes per session. Read on to learn more about laser lipo treatments and whether or not Emerald Laser is right for you.
Benefits of laser lipo
Emerald Laser has several benefits over other fat reduction systems. For more detailed information, contact an Emerald Laser provider in your area.
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. If you gain weight after those treatments end, the body can only store fat in the remaining cells, resulting in increased fat accumulation elsewhere, including around vital organs. With Emerald Laser, you shouldn’t regain the fat if you maintain your weight with a reasonable diet and exercise. On the other hand, if you do gain weight, it won’t concentrate around different areas of the body.
Frequently Asked Questions about Lipo Laser Treatments
Before undergoing any medical procedure — even a safe, non-invasive technique — it’s essential to be informed. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions by our clients.
How Long Do the Effects of Laser Lipo Last?
As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid gaining weight, this type of fat reduction can last indefinitely. Your Emerald Laser non-invasive lipo provider will give you additional advice on how to prevent future weight gains through diet and exercise.
How Quickly Can I See Results?
The gradual fat reduction process begins almost immediately after your first procedure, but you probably won’t see noticeable gains for at least four weeks. Most patients see substantial changes in the 4 – 12 week period.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Laser Lipo?
If you’re an adult with a BMI under 40 and you are seeking an established fat-reduction procedure, contact an Emerald Laser provider. If you are unsure of your BMI, contact a provider to determine whether or not Emerald Laser is right for you.
