Discover the EMERALD non-thermal body sculpting laser by Erchonia
Non-thermal low-level laser (NTLLL) has been in clinical use since the late 1960s, and for many years its method of action was not fully understood or appreciated.
NTLLL covers a broad medical spectrum which can be used to the benefit of your patients and the expansion of your clinical practice. Some patients are not just looking for ways to aesthetically modify their appearance, but many are also looking for ways of restoring, re-energising and revitalising their cells to restore health and wellness and using their own fat to get their health back.
The biochemical mechanism underlying the therapeutic results of NTLLL has a wide range of effects at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels. There is strong evidence to suggest that within the cell, NTLLL acts on the mitochondria via cytochrome-c (COX) to increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. This up-regulates mitochondrial respiration and is the energetic component that produces an energy cascade and electron transport.
Specific wavelengths of light can trigger mast cell degranulation, modulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and free nitric oxide (NO), and the induction of transcription factors. Numerous transcription factors are regulated by changes in cellular redox state. As a result, an increase is seen in cell proliferation and migration, and modulation in the levels of transcription factor. These transcription factors then cause protein synthesis that triggers further effects.1
The EMERALD LASER works by empowering the body to repair and restore itself by harnessing the body’s ability to function at a higher level through cellular activity. This in turn leads to an ability to reduce fat by not harming the fat cell itself, and collagen reprofiling, thus improving the appearance of cellulite. The EMERALD LASER is currently the only device US FDA market cleared to treat those with a BMI of over 30 on overall body circumference. The EMERALD LASER™ experience causes our fat cells to release their fatty content for safe removal from the body by the lymphatic system. These fat cells now begin to act and function like healthy lean fat cells again, releasing the correct messages to your brain and, even more exciting, they begin a communication cascade throughout the fat organ causing other fat cells to react the same way, releasing their content and returning their hormone responses back to the positive!
We look at fat as being bad, but fat is good if correctly processed. It is food for the body to use for energy and essential chemical processes. Through chemical actions, fat protects us and tell us when we are hungry, balances hormones and signals regulation. The EMERALD LASER emulsifies the fat and turns it into free fatty acid, which our body can convert into energy to power and fuel activity. Once this fat is liberated from the fat cell through a transitory pore, a large part of it is used for energy. Some is removed from the body via phagocytosis and lymphatic action, and the remainder returns to any available fat cells. Non-Thermal Laser also empowers the body to create mtDNA and assist in mtRNA synthesis, and this releases usable energy into the body. As we age the viable number of mtDNA is greatly diminished as is our ability to produce stem cells.
The EMERALD LASER and Verju 532nm green diode lasers by Erchonia underwent multiple placebo-controlled, double blind, randomised, multi-centre clinical studies to gauge their efficacy and achieved unrivalled results. There were no adjunct therapies or lifestyle changes in the studies. Erchonia hold 18 of the 21 US FDA market clearances for Low Level Laser and have over $5 million invested in any one time into research. There have been no reported side effects or adverse reactions, and the system is truly inspired by the simplicity of nature.
Erchonia non-thermal lasers use the minimum
amount of power to generate a stable laser
beam which delivers electromagnetic energy
in the body. The body converts this energy into
viable metabolic energy which fuels processes
throughout the system creating a systemic
effect of communication from cell to cell. It
is important to say that this is a true laser i.e.
collimated, monochromatic and unidirectional.
