When you’re on a weight loss journey, it can be difficult to target stubborn fat without medical assistance. No matter what you seem to do, you just can’t get rid of those stubborn areas. When you’re trying to lose those last few pounds, there may be ways that your doctor can help. Dr. Rolando Alvarez M.D., M.S. -Age Management Medicine Specialist /Nuclear Medicine Physician at PharmXhealthOne in Boynton Beach, FL, Palm Beach, FL, and Port St. Lucie, FL, can explain how the Emerald laser can help with your weight loss goals.
When you’re dealing with being overweight and trying to lose weight, it can be difficult to achieve your goals on your own. Even with a proper diet and exercise, you might struggle to lose the weight you’re dealing with. We might recommend the Emerald laser to assist with weight loss.
The Emerald laser helps target specific areas where you’d like to get rid of stubborn fat. The device is cleared to help people that have a BMI of up to 40. The laser emulsifies fatty tissue with cold laser technology. The whole treatment can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes and there is no downtime needed after.
During treatment, your doctor will have you lay on your back where the cold laser is applied for 15 minutes. Once that’s over, you’ll flip over onto your front and the process will be repeated on your back. The number of treatments needed will depend on your specific goals and needs.
