Cosmetic and medical laser manufacturer Erchonia Corporation has launched a new low-level green laser designed for body fat reduction.
Erchonia explains that the Emerald device emits 10 green lasers onto the skin, aiming to emulsify the adipose tissue and release excess fatty materials.
The company also states that the laser was FDA cleared in three separate clinical trials, with no known side effects.
Julie Davies, events manager at Erchonia, said, “Emerald is the only laser in the world that has been given FDA market clearance for overall body circumference reduction in patients with small pockets of fat, to individuals with a BMI up to 40. The laser works as a natural alternative for fat loss by using low level lasers and electromagnetic energy transfer. It’s a way to preserve your patient's endocrinal cell function.”
