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.
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.

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.
Overview of Results
In a 2009 double-blind study, of the individuals who were treated with laser lipolysis, “the changes in total circumference measurements between groups were statistically significant.” The astonishing results in this study were part of a series of three separate double-blind studies leading to Emerald Laser’s historic FDA market clearance.
