How does the Emerald laser compare to other non surgical fat loss devices?
Emerald Laser has a number of benefits that traditional fat-reduction options don’t. Unlike liposuction, a surgical procedure that causes bruises, redness, and swelling, and weeks of downtime, the Emerald Laser is a non thermal fat removal treatment that causes no side effects and no downtime. It uses low-level laser light to penetrate the skin about 4-5 mm and break down fat. It does this by activating a cellular process in the adipose cells that creates transitory pores that can last up to 72 hours.
The treatment is non-invasive, with no discomfort or pain, and none of the risks associated with a surgical procedure such as liposuction.
Other popular noninvasive procedures use fat freezing to break down fat generally involve more discomfort than laser fat removal treatments. The results appear more slowly, and, in some cases, more treatments are required to get the desired results. Also, can cause side effects and deformities called "shark bites".
The Emerald Laser is the only laser fat loss option FDA Market Cleared to treat patients with BMIs up to 40. Cleared to treat the entire body, it reduces fat that causes love handles, muffin tops, and more.
