Emerald Fat Loss Laser

Emerald Laser

Erchonia’s Emerald laser is an FDA Market-Cleared full body fat loss treatment that allows clients to target areas of stubborn fat. Emerald Laser treats overall body circumference and is the only device FDA cleared to treat those with a BMI up to 40. Applied externally, the laser targets excess fat by emulsifying fatty tissue through the use of cold laser technology developed by Erchonia.

  • FDA Market Cleared to Treat Individuals up to 40 BMI
  • No Bruising, No Swelling, No Freezing, No Downtime
  • Average Circumference Loss of 5.99″
  • Not Applied Directly On Skin


Product Description

Emerald Laser is a system of ten 532-nanometer green lasers designed to decrease fat in targeted areas of the body. 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.

How it Works

Emerald works by utilizing Erchonia’s patented green low level laser technology to emulsify adipose tissue which is then released into the interstitial space. Our bodies remove the fat from the area and transport it through the lymphatic system.

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.

Unlike liposuction or fat freezing (cryolipolysis), Emerald laser treatments empty the fat cells but don’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.

This 30-minute is straightforward and causes no side effects. Your Emerald provider will have you lie on a comfortable table on your back. The lasers will be applied to target areas of fat simultaneously for approximately 15 minutes. You’ll then lie on your front, where the process will be repeated.

Once you find a provider near you, you will schedule a consultation. In your one-on-one consultation, your provider will learn more about you and your health habits, goals, and expectations, so that they may tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs. The number of treatments you can expect in your treatment package will vary based on your individual needs and goals. Depending on your provider, your treatments may also be combined with supplements and nutritional counseling to make the most of your results. This varies from provider to provider, but since the lasers open your fat pores and exit through your lymphatic system, the healthier your lifestyle during treatment, the more drastic your results will be.

For Medical Professionals

Emerald Laser was market cleared after three separate blind clinical trials demonstrated overall body circumference reduction. It is currently the only device to receive FDA clearance to treat individuals up to 40 BMI, which makes our providers able to exclusively treat morbidly obese patients with laser lipo. It’s important to note that this process does not elevate plasma lipids, plasma triglycerides, or cholesterol in the patient.

This professional laser machine utilizes ten low-intensity 532-nanometer lasers to target fat cells in the stomach, hips, back, thighs — virtually anywhere in the human body where adipose cells grow and accumulate.

Advantages Over Other Fat Loss Options

  • This is a non-invasive procedure.
  • It’s not only performed on an out-patient basis; there is no downtime or convalescence after each treatment. Patients can resume normal activities immediately.
  • The process is painless, which means that the patient remains awake and there is no local anesthetic requirement. Patients usually feel nothing and those who are able to feel it compare it to a slight tingling.
  • The process is fast, and each session only takes approximately 30 minutes.
  • After thousands of treatments and several studies, there are no known side effects.
  • Unlike cryolipolysis (fat freezing) or lipectomy, the fat cells shrink, but they survive the process. This is less risky than a cell-killing process, which can result in fat accumulating in other areas of the body, including near the vital organs.
