Welcome to Nichola Maasdorp No4 Clinic, where we’re dedicated to helping you achieve your body goals with cutting-edge treatments. Today, let’s explore the transformative world of Emerald Laser fat removal, unveiling its wonders and answering your top 10 questions about this innovative treatment.

What is Emerald Laser Fat Reduction?

Emerald Laser fat reduction is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that utilises advanced laser technology to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells. This revolutionary procedure offers a safe and effective solution for sculpting various areas of the body, helping you achieve a slimmer, more contoured physique without surgery or downtime.

How Does Laser Fat Removal Work?

During the Emerald Laser fat reduction treatment, low-level laser energy is emitted through specialised paddles or panels placed on the skin’s surface. This energy penetrates the skin, targeting underlying fat cells without causing harm to surrounding tissues. The laser energy disrupts the structure of the fat cells, causing them to release their contents, which are then metabolised and eliminated by the body naturally over time. As a result, treated areas experience a reduction in fat volume, leading to a more sculpted appearance.

Top 10 Questions About Emerald Laser Fat Reduction:

How Long Does Laser Fat Removal Last?

The results of Emerald Laser fat reduction can vary depending on individual factors such as lifestyle, metabolism, and treatment adherence. However, with proper maintenance, results can be long-lasting.

Does Laser Fat Removal Work?

Yes, Emerald Laser fat reduction is clinically proven to be effective in reducing fat volume and contouring the body. Many individuals experience noticeable improvements in body shape and appearance after undergoing treatment.

Do Fat Reduction Treatments Work?

Fat reduction treatments, including Emerald Laser therapy, have shown to be effective for many individuals seeking to address localised areas of stubborn fat. However, results may vary, and it’s essential to maintain realistic expectations and adhere to recommended treatment protocols.

Is Laser Fat Removal Painful?

Emerald Laser fat reduction is generally well-tolerated by most individuals and is not considered painful. Some may experience mild discomfort or a warming sensation during treatment, but this is typically temporary and subsides quickly.

What Areas of the Body Can I Have Laser Fat Removal On?

Emerald Laser fat reduction can target various areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, arms, back, and chin. This versatility allows for comprehensive body contouring tailored to your specific needs.

How Many Sessions Are Needed for Optimal Results?

The number of sessions required for optimal results can vary depending on individual factors such as the treatment area, desired outcome, and initial fat volume. Typically, a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart is recommended to achieve desired results.

Is There Any Downtime After Treatment?

One of the significant advantages of Emerald Laser fat reduction is that it requires minimal to no downtime. Most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment without restrictions.

Are Results Permanent?

While Emerald Laser fat reduction can effectively reduce fat volume in treated areas, maintaining results requires a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet. Adopting healthy habits can help prolong and optimise the longevity of your results.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Fat Removal?

Ideal candidates for Emerald Laser fat reduction are individuals who are close to their target weight but have localised areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. A consultation with a qualified practitioner can determine candidacy based on individual needs and goals.

What Should I Expect During and After Treatment?

During treatment, you can expect to feel a mild warming sensation as the laser energy targets fat cells beneath the skin. Afterward, you may experience temporary redness or slight swelling in treated areas, which typically resolves within a few hours to days.

“Hi Nichola, I don’t know if you remember but I had tear trough treatment back in November. I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I was initially fairly pleased with the results but now am delighted! The darkness has all but gone even without make-up. I am so much more confident than before.”


“My wrinkled lined face caused me great distress for many years! An opportunity arose to attend an open day with Dr Nichola Maasdorp. I was introduced to different treatments to reduce these lines. Following treatment my lines are smoother and I am very pleased with the results.
