The Verjú Green Diode System is a piece of low-level laser therapy equipment used to remove fatty lipids from body cells.
Unlike other systems, the green diode increases collagen concentration in the dermal layer and remodels collagen within the fibrotic septae. This puts the green diode system ahead of all others when treating circumferential and cellulite reduction.
Six low-level lasers are placed over the patient’s treatment area(s). Photonic energy from the lasers excite the body’s cells, causing the release of fatty lipids and shrinking of fat cells. A percussor is then used to help release the liberated fat via the lymphatic system.
Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that the Verjú™ low-level laser system stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips, and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
The Verjú Green Diode System is used to reduce the circumference of the treatment area(s) and to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
You can expect to relax, read, or do absolutely nothing. The Verjú treatment is completely painless. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. Each treatment you will be met by your physician or technician who will position the laser at the desired areas of the body, he/she will step out while the front of your body is treated and then will return to reset for the backside of your body. After you are done you can get back to your normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, nor pain, swelling, or any discomfort. This is a symptom-free process except for losing unwanted inches and cellulite.
It is not recommended that you miss an appointment. Prior to starting the Verjú treatment, it is important that you are committed to the recommended lifestyle protocol by your physician, not to exceed 72 hours between treatments. If more than 72 hours intervenes, some of the fat may be uptaken by the fat cells again.
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia. In contrast, the Verjú treatment is a 100% non-invasive that uses a low-level laser applied externally to stimulate the fat cell and emulsify and release fat. There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles, and no downtime.
The Verjú laser system is the only green laser completely safe and effective for non-invasive treatment in body slimming and the appearance of cellulite on the market today. There is no possibility of injury. No technician will be pushing on you or using any device against your body. You simply lay beneath the Verjú lights.
Absolutely ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used, and you can resume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
No. During the treatment period you can continue your normal activities. It is strongly recommended that you commit to and follow the treatment protocol: stay hydrated (8-10 glasses of water a day), continue to eat healthy and exercise (walk at least 15 minutes a day), and minimize alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it, which can decrease your results.
The Verjú treatment was proven effective in a double-blind clinical trial for non-invasive body contouring of the waist, hips, and thighs where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise and for the appearance of cellulite in the hips, thighs, and lower abdomen.
Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Verjú low-level laser system therapy, and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and lipodissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage, which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. None of these have the proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced like the Verjú. The Verjú treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scarring, and zero downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used, and you can resume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Yes, with two exceptions. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, Verjú should not be used. Additionally, if you have a pacemaker, this treatment may not be for you. There are no known detrimental risks but potential unknown risks may exist. Verjú may not be as effective on patients with diabetes or thyroid disorders where the metabolic system is potentially impaired.
No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive, and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches, fat, and the appearance of cellulite.
The Verjú has been used in studies since 2012 and has been used by physicians in practice since early 2014.
Yes, with the Verjú treatment and by following the recommended guidelines for success, we saw an average loss of 4.0 inches reported in our clinical trial on the waist, hips, and thighs and a decrease of 1 grade of cellulite on Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Scale (25% reduction).
By maintaining a healthy diet and exercising, you can expect long-term results.
Yes, with additional treatments you can expect to see improved results. You can start an additional series of Verjú treatments immediately following your last treatment. Speak to your technician or physician about any discount programs that may apply.
It is recommended that you wait until after your last postpartum visit with your doctor (usually 6 weeks after birth) to begin your Verjú treatment. It is not recommended if you are breast feeding.
Some can see results after only a few treatment sessions as their clothes fit more loosely. Many actually see the difference after 4-6 sessions. Family and friends often notice the difference, too, within the 1st 2 weeks of the Verjú program.
Most are good candidates. Even people who are not overweight can lose inches. Be sure to discuss your health background with your physician and ask any questions about your particular areas of concern.
Studies have shown a significant reduction in a patient’s overall circumference as well as noticeable reduction in their amount of cellulite.
The depth of penetration is dependent on multiple factors including mass and density. Low-level lasers have been proven in clinical studies to effect subcutaneous cells. Low-level lasers do penetrate, as opposed to the heat lamp devices that do not.
The Verjú laser underwent a placebo controlled study to gauge its efficacy and achieved great results. You can learn more about the study and others here.
The FDA clears devices with specific indications of use for market. This is sometimes referred to by persons outside the FDA as “FDA Approval”, although it is a term unacceptable to the FDA. All Erchonia low-level laser therapy equipment and devices have received a FDA market clearance or were self-certified in accordance to FDA regulation.
Verjú develops, designs, and manufactures devices in accordance to both FDA and International Standards for Medical Device Quality Standards. Prior to release, finished devices are tested to Medical Safety Standards for Laser Controls, EMC, and Safety.
There are no code regulated contraindications; however, since there are no long-term evaluations on certain conditions, Verjú does not recommend use on pregnant women or persons with a pace maker.
No. Low-level laser by virtue of design is non-heat producing and does not alter the cell structure. The laser irradiation is non-ionizing, meaning it does not collect in the tissue.
Some persons have reported a sense of deep relaxation that may cause drowsiness.
There are no known and/or published adverse effects of low-level laser therapy.
