Emerald laser is a type of laser device that is used for non-surgical fat reduction and body contouring. Specifically, the Emerald laser is a 650nm laser that is designed to target fat cells in the body and disrupt their structure, causing them to break down and be eliminated by the body's natural processes.
The Emerald laser is typically used in a procedure called "laser lipolysis," which is a non-invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. During the procedure, the Emerald laser is applied to the target area, such as the abdomen or thighs.
It can be used anywhere on the body. The laser energy penetrates the skin and targets the fat cells, causing them to release their contents and shrink in size.
One of the advantages of Emerald laser fat reduction is that it is a non-invasive procedure, meaning there is no surgery involved and no incisions are made in the skin. This results in no downtime or recovery period. No side effects either.
From clinical experience of multiple hundreds of treatments we have not seen any side effects other than losing adipose volume.
The results of Emerald laser fat reduction can vary depending on the individual and the treatment area. Typically, patients can expect to see a reduction in the size and circumference of the treated area, as well as a more contoured appearance.
We have seen some amazing results right here in Durango.
It's important to note that while Emerald laser fat reduction can be effective, it is not a weight loss treatment and is best suited for individuals who are already at or near their ideal weight but have localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
The results of Emerald laser fat reduction are usually gradual and may require multiple treatments to achieve the desired outcome. Some patients may see results as soon as a few weeks after treatment, while others may take several months to see the full effect.
It's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, in order to maximize and maintain the results of Emerald laser fat reduction.
There have been several studies conducted on the effectiveness and safety of Emerald laser for fat reduction and body contouring. Here are some examples:
A 2015 study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology found that Emerald laser treatment resulted in a significant reduction in waist circumference and abdominal fat thickness in a group of overweight and obese patients.
A 2016 study published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy compared the results of Emerald laser treatment to traditional liposuction and found that both treatments were effective at reducing fat and the Emerald laser had fewer side effects and a shorter recovery time.
A 2018 study published in the Journal of Lasers in Medical Sciences found that Emerald laser treatment resulted in a significant reduction in thigh circumference and improved skin elasticity in a group of women.
A 2020 study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery compared the effectiveness of Emerald laser treatment to cryolipolysis (fat freezing) and found that both treatments were effective at reducing fat, but Emerald laser had a faster onset of results.
Overall, these studies suggest that Emerald laser is a safe and effective option for non-surgical fat reduction and body contouring.
