Everything About Emerald Laser – Non Surgical Weight Loss
Weight loss treatments often belong to the most sought-after cosmetic procedures worldwide. Even those who undergo a strict diet and exercise regime sometimes need a procedure to help them eliminate stubborn fats that cannot be removed through natural means. For overweight individuals, liposuction is often excluded from the options because the treatment is not meant to help them reduce weight as an alternative to exercise.
But what if there is a way to lose weight through a cosmetic procedure without the need for diet or exercise? What if there is an advanced, non-surgical weight loss treatment that is like a magic wand that can make your waistline, thighs, arms, and hips smaller in one go?
Through the Emerald Laser technology, it is possible to remove fats even for those who are considered obese.
What Is Emerald Laser?
Emerald Laser is the latest technology for non-surgical weight loss approved by the FDA. It can be done on the whole body, removing even the most stubborn fats. Additionally, it targets multiple regions in the body and not just a single area like other existing fat removal procedures.
The procedure is called Emerald Laser because of the green light it emits during the treatment. Known weight loss cosmetic procedures remove fat in specific areas to create the desired contour. With the Emerald Laser, the goal is to reduce overall body circumference.
Emerald Laser is a low-level laser therapy (LLLT) commonly used for acne treatment. It got FDA clearance in 2010 for whole-body fat reduction services, which means the technology has been tried and tested to work for non-surgical weight loss procedures.
If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of more than 30, you can enjoy the benefits of this non-surgical weight loss treatment. It is a practical way to start losing weight because it provides visible results that can encourage you to maintain the achieved figure.
How It Works
The procedure is done by pointing the green, cold laser through the skin, breaking down and shrinking fatty tissues. The fat cells are then moved away naturally from the body through the lymphatic system, several weeks after undergoing the treatment.
When the laser reaches the fat cells, it forces the cells to develop pore-like openings. These openings are where fatty liquid seeps out, causing the cells to shrink. The shrinking fat cells become visible as the targeted area of the laser also gets smaller, resulting in a slimmer waist, arms, or thighs.
The treatment is fast and simple. You will be requested in our office to lie down as we point the lasers to the target areas. Once on, the green laser will pass through your skin, penetrating the fat underneath it to start the breakdown process. The whole process will take only 30 minutes to complete, so you can go back to your normal activities without any side effects.
Advantages Over Other Weight Loss Treatments
- Zero downtime
Emerald Laser procedure requires zero downtime after the treatment. You can instantly go back to your usual routine without any side effects.
The procedure is non-surgical and uses a cold laser for a completely painless procedure. Traditional liposuction, while minimally invasive, can still cause trauma to the tissue, which is why discomfort or pain is often associated with the treatment during the recovery period.
- Quick results
The Emerald Laser promises an average of 6% reduction in overall body circumference after the broken down fats have been removed from your body. This can significantly boost your confidence and morale to continue with your weight loss regime because of the noticeable fat loss.
Other weight loss treatments can only be done on certain areas of the body. On the other hand, Emerald Laser can be applied to specific fatty areas and also on larger parts of the body.
Comparison With Existing Fat Removal Procedures
Emerald Laser has a huge advantage over other weight loss aesthetic treatments because it can be done on people diagnosed to be obese, exceeding a BMI of 30. Liposuction and other fat removal procedures cannot be done on those who are overweight. Liposuction is not an alternative to diet but is designed to remove excess and stubborn fats that cannot be burned through exercise.
How about CoolSculpting? CoolSculpting is another popular, non-invasive, and non-surgical weight loss cosmetic treatment. However, it can cause slight discomfort during treatment compared to Emerald Laser. Additionally, results appear later with CoolSculpting, and more sessions may be required to achieve the best results.
Emerald Laser is also different from radiofrequency lipolysis as the latter uses heat to destroy the fat cells. It is also different from ultrasound-assisted liposuction like Vaser Hi-Def treatment since this one uses ultrasonic waves to kill fat cells.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How effective is Emerald Laser?
A study was conducted by Harvard on the efficiency of the technology that powers Emerald Laser. Those who received the treatment lost an average of 3.51 inches on their waistline, thighs, and hips, all within 2 weeks. Some clients even lost an average of 5.9 inches over four weeks after the procedure. All the results were observed without any change in lifestyle or diet.
- Who can undergo Emerald Laser treatment?
Men and women who want to trim down their overall size through a non-invasive, non-surgical weight loss procedure are welcome to try what Emerald Laser has to offer. It is best if your BMI is under 30, although the treatment can also be done on those with a higher BMI ratio.
- Where can I apply Emerald Laser?
Emerald Laser is often requested to be done on the abdomen, hips, and thighs since these areas carry the most fats and produce the most significant outcomes when treated. The chest, back, legs, and neck can also be treated with green laser light.
- How long will it take before I see the results?
Results of the Emerald Laser treatment will start to appear over the next 4 to 12 weeks. This is the time your body needs to carry away the fatty liquid extracted through the treatment. During this period, you will slowly observe your body changing as your waistline gets slimmer, your arms more toned, and your thighs more compact.
It may take around 6 to 8 treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. So long as you commit to the lifestyle plan we will provide, which includes proper diet and exercise, you will see your body transform without any problem.
- How much will it cost me?
Regarding costs, Emerald Laser treatment is way cheaper than CoolSculpting. A session of CoolSculpting will cost you around AED 4,700 (USD 1,300), and you will most likely need multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. On the other hand, the cost of Emerald Laser starts at AED 6,200 (USD 1,700), and that is for the whole package.
