The body sculpting process is one that you’re going to want to feel confident about. We know that there are probably tons of questions that you have, and we are more than ready to to answer them! Check out some of the questions that we are most frequently asked about the Verjus process here, and if you need any further assistance or have further questions, feel free to reach out to us.
1. How Does It Work?
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.
2. How is it Different than Liposuction?
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.
3. What Can I Expect at My Appointments?
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.
4. Is There Any Downtime?
Absolutely ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
