Laser Lipo vs. Cool Sculpting

There are so many web pages floating around the Internet that attempt to explain weight loss and body contouring options. You’re willing to read up and discover which one is right for you — but where do you even start?

While diet and exercise are logical solutions to many health and beauty concerns, they’re not a perfect fix. Beyond surgical procedures like traditional liposuction, there are safe, non-invasive fat removal options that produce incredible, long-lasting results.

Emerald Laser and CoolSculpting are both non-invasive fat removal procedures. Read on for a thorough comparison of these two popular laser fat loss techniques.

Emerald laser is the latest FDA Market-Cleared full body fat loss treatment that allows clients to target areas of stubborn fat. Emerald Laser treats overall body circumference and is the only device FDA cleared to treat those with up to 40 BMI . Applied externally, the laser targets excess fat by emulsifying fatty tissue through the use of cold laser technology developed by Erchonia.

It provides an alternative fat loss treatment without the adverse side effects associated with surgical and other weight loss procedures like liposuction, cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) and body wraps.
