EMERALD Laser is a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical fat loss treatment which shrinks fat cells in stubborn areas of the body. Patients lose an average of 6 inches over a course of treatment, with no downtime.
Most of us want to maintain a healthy lifestyle and do our best to eat well and maintain a regular exercise regime. However, for some of us, stubborn body fat can still remain in places where it will simply not budge, no matter how much we look after ourselves.
At Dr MediSpa we offer the most state-of-the-art, highly effective and clinically-proven technologies for a range of face and body concerns, and we are excited to now offer EMERALD Laser™, a non-invasive laser device to help reduce stubborn body fat and create a more svelte silhouette. EMERALD represents the most advanced ‘laser lipo treatment’ available worldwide.
The EMERALD treatment process is non-surgical and non-invasive, so it’s easy for anyone to incorporate into their busy schedules. EMERALD is available at DrMedispa cosmetic clinic in London.
DrMedispa is proud to be a Centre of Excellence for EMERALD laser fat reduction treatment in the UK. Dr Munir Somji is a Key Opinion Leader for EMERALD. We are one of the first UK clinics to offer this groundbreaking treatment.

What is EMERALD Laser?
The treatment emulsifies the adipose tissue and releases excess fatty materials into the body, where it is lost through the natural course of detoxification through the lymphatic system.
EMERALD Laser is a totally non-invasive, hands-free treatment. It has:
No heating or freezing of the skin
No pinching or bruising
No incisions required
No common side effects (discussed with your clinician)
EMERALD is a low-level, non-thermal laser which emits 10 532nm green lasers on to the skin, to break down hypertrophic adipocytes (fat cells) without killing them – this keeps the hormonal system balanced. The energy transfer from the laser triggers fat cells to release their fatty content, making the fat cells lean and healthy again.
Your DrMedispa clinician will provide manual lymphatic-draining massage to speed up the fat elimination process.
What can I expect with an EMERALD laser treatment?
With a course of EMERALD laser lipo treatment at DrMedispa, stubborn pockets of fat can be broken down. It also has a collagen-remodelling effect, which can improve the appearance of cellulite.
Common treatment areas include:
Hips (muffin top)
EMERALD laser can also be used on other problem areas such as the arms, neck, calves, ankles and chest. The EMERALD Laser is the only laser fat loss option FDA-approved to treat the entire body, safely and effectively.
What happens during the EMERALD treatment at Dr MediSpa?
At an initial consultation, we will discuss your body concerns and check your medical history to make sure you are suitable for EMERALD.
We will also discussed proactive lifestyle habits, such as diet and exercise, that will help you lose weight and maintain your results.
A treatment plan will then be customised to your goals, and you will be able to book in for your first treatment session at our London cosmetic clinic.
The treatment is straightforward and offers no discomfort or side-effects. Your practitioner will ask you to lie on a treatment couch, whilst 10 lasers are applied to the target areas to be treated simultaneously. The treatment takes around 30 minutes, after which, you can return to your daily activities with no downtime.
What results can I expect?
You can expect an average circumference loss of up to 6 inches with EMERALD laser. However, this will depend on your individual body fat ratio. If you maintain a healthy eating plan and regular exercise regime, this can increase the chances of optimum fat loss and long-term success.
EMERALD Laser results develop between 4-12 weeks as fat cells shrink down into lean, healthy tissue.
What is the difference between fat freezing and laser fat reduction with EMERALD?
Traditionally, fat freezing treatments such as CoolSculpting have been used by clinics to reduce fat cells by freezing and killing them. This has resulted in some fantastic cases, but some patients experience a phenomenon called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. This causes the fat cells to multiply and thicken, which actually causes a gradual increase in fat in the areas treated.
EMERALD laser lipo treatment does not heat or cool the treatment area, and it does not aim to kill the fat cells. The method of action triggers the cells to release their fat without harming the cell. Therefore, EMERALD Laser cannot trigger paradoxical adipose hyperplasia.
*patient results are individual and not guaranteed. Your results at DrMedispa clinics may vary.
Frequently Asked Questions about EMERALD
How many sessions of EMERALD Laser treatments will I need?
This all depends on the amount of subcutaneous fat that you have and how many areas need to be treated. On average expect to have between 8 to 10 sessions for optimum results. Your treatment plan will be discussed at your pre-procedure consultation, here at Dr MediSpa.
How does a laser remove fat without heating or freezing it?
EMERALD Laser draws fat from cells using electromagnetic energy transfer. A photochemical reaction creates a transistory pore in the fat cell membrane; the fatty content of the fat cell is emulsified and then extrudes out into the interstitial space. The fat is then carried away and removed by the body.
Messaging between fat cells also triggers the expulsion of fat from cells over time, meaning that the EMERALD Laser fat reduction treatment stimulates fat loss during and after the treatment appointment itself.
How does EMERALD Laser fat leave the body?
When fat is released from the fat cells during the course of laser lipo treatment, your body’s natural rebalancing removes it. The lymphatic system carries the fat to be excreted.
Lymphatic flow can be stimulated and encouraged via manual treatment in-clinic at DrMedispa, as part of your EMERALD laser treatment.
Does EMERALD Laser hurt?
With EMERALD laser you can rest assured that there is no pain, no freezing, no bruising, no downtime and no side-effects, unlike some other fat freezing and laser technologies on the market.
How long will my results last?
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat a nutritious diet, as well as exercise regularly, the results from EMERALD laser can be permanent.
