EMERALD Laser by Erchonia

Estimated reading time 5 minutes

The EMERALD Laser by Erchonia has achieved significant recognition for its innovative capabilities. In 2022, it was awarded the prestigious ‘Best Aesthetic Technology’ at the Safety in Beauty Awards, showcasing its advanced features. Building on this success, the EMERALD Laser was named ‘The Best Non-Invasive Body Shaping Technology’ at the 2023 AMWC Aesthetic Medicine Awards, solidifying its status as a pioneering device in cosmetic and wellness treatments.

Emerald – Clinically Proven.

Approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019, the EMERALD Laser is a powerful tool for full-body fat-loss treatments. It uses harmless light energy to target fat cells, creating small temporary pores that allow fatty liquids to seep out, causing the fat cells to shrink. The body’s lymphatic system then naturally processes and removes these fatty liquids. Once the fat cells shrink, they regain the characteristics of healthy, lean cells, helping the body manage and store energy normally and reducing insulin sensitivity over the long term.

Developed by laser pioneer Erchonia, the EMERALD Laser uses ten green laser diodes, producing 20% more energy than red diodes, enabling it to emulsify fat without generating problematic heat or requiring cooling. Unlike liposuction, which removes fat cells, or cryolipolysis (fat freezing), which destroys them, the EMERALD Laser shrinks fat cells while keeping them in place, allowing the body to use them normally after treatment.

Why Might You Be Interested in EMERALD Laser?

For individuals carrying extra body fat, EMERALD Laser treatment offers a non-surgical solution for fat loss. It can remove subcutaneous fat not only from common problem areas such as the waist, hips, and thighs, but also from any part of the body.

Why is EMERALD Laser Exciting?

The EMERALD Laser enables body fat reduction and shaping goals to be achieved without surgery, painful treatments, or significant time investment. Its non-thermal ‘true’ laser technology works in harmony with the body, distinguishing it as a wellness device. Remarkably, it can effectively treat individuals with a BMI of up to 40 for fat loss and cellulite reduction.

How Does an EMERALD Laser Treatment Work?

The primary application of the EMERALD Green Diode System is to reduce the circumference of treatment areas and diminish the appearance of cellulite. This treatment is a natural, healthy alternative with no apoptosis (cell death), preserving the endocrine function of fat cells. This holistic approach promotes well-being by providing a cellular anti-ageing effect, leading to various health benefits. Patients often report increased energy levels due to the approximately 400% increase in ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body’s energy currency, resulting from EMERALD Laser treatments.

How Long Do the Results Last?

The results of the EMERALD Laser treatment are permanent. However, maintaining these results requires a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Is EMERALD Laser Treatment Painful?

No. EMERALD Laser treatment is completely painless. Patients may feel nothing at all or experience a slight tingling sensation.

Where Can EMERALD Laser Treatment Be Used?

EMERALD Laser can be used anywhere on the body where there are pockets of fat to reduce or remove.

Who is Suitable for EMERALD Laser Treatment?

Two groups of patients are suitable for EMERALD Laser treatment:

  • Patients with small pockets of fat, such as under the chin, that cannot be reduced through diet and exercise.
  • Patients with BMI values ranging from 30 to 40, where BMI 30 to 34.9 is considered moderately obese and BMI 35 to 39.9 is severely obese.

How Long Does EMERALD Laser Treatment Take?

Each treatment session lasts 30 minutes.

How Quickly Can Results Be Seen?

Results are typically visible after about two weeks, with continued improvement over approximately four weeks. A typical course involves one to two treatments per week for 4 to 8 weeks.

How Much Does EMERALD Laser Treatment Cost?

The cost varies based on the treatment area and whether a course of treatment or individual sessions are chosen. Example costs include:

  • A course of 10 full-body treatments: from £3,000
  • Individual treatments for the chin area: from £90
  • Individual treatments for body areas: from £175

Will There Be Scars from EMERALD Laser Treatments?

No. EMERALD Laser is a non-invasive procedure and does not cause scarring.

Are There Side Effects from EMERALD Laser Treatment?

No. There are no reported side effects from EMERALD Laser treatment.

What is the Aftercare Advice Following an EMERALD Laser Treatment?

  • Follow any specific advice provided by your practitioner.
  • Drink at least 3 litres of water daily for the first three days post-treatment to help eliminate fat.
  • Stay active, with daily exercise or at least a 30-minute walk.
  • Avoid alcohol during and for four weeks after treatment.
  • Avoid carbonated drinks to prevent water retention.
  • Reduce caffeine intake to support kidney function in processing emulsified fat.

Are Any Specific Treatments Recommended Post-Treatment?

Lymphatic massage, wearing a lymphatic drainage suit, or using a vibration plate may help eliminate emulsified fat.

Are There Any Studies on the Effects of EMERALD Laser Treatment?

Three separate double-blind clinical trials have proven the effectiveness of EMERALD Laser, leading to FDA market clearance.

Who Created EMERALD Laser?

Erchonia, a pioneer in low-level laser therapy (LLLT), created the EMERALD Laser, which employs ten green laser diodes emitting 20% more energy than red diodes, allowing fat emulsification without heat or cooling.

Who is Not Suitable for Laser Lipolysis Treatments?

Laser lipolysis treatments are generally not suitable for patients with:

  • Morbid obesity (BMI over 40)
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Cancer, uncontrolled diabetes, or conditions affecting wound healing
  • Photosensitivity due to medication
