We tailor make our treatments to suit your aims, objectives, and personal characteristics. Because of this very personal approach, pricing varies from person to person and can only be provided at your Free Consultation.

We are however, very competitively priced in Cumbria, and our treatments come with a convenient payment plan option that allows you to pay in manageable monthly instalments.

Emerald™ uses 10 x 532nm true green laser beams (monochromatic, collimated, and coherent) to create small transitory pores for the fatty liquids in fat cells to seep out. The fatty liquids are then naturally flushed out through your lymphatic system.

The result is that the fat cells shrink instead of being killed. When this happens, the shrunken fat cells begin to act and function like healthy lean cells, releasing the correct messages to the brain and creating a communication effect throughout the fat organ, causing other fat cells to release their content and return their hormone responses to the positive.

Procedures that have been popular in the past (such as fat freezing) focus on the elimination of fat cells, but recent research has shown this approach to be ineffective, and in the worst-case scenario, providing counterproductive results as the fat may regenerate in other parts of the body, or worse, around your organs.

The Emerald™ Laser effectively trains fat cells to behave and react differently, and all without excessive heat or cooling.

Statements From The FDA:

  • Emerald – 6 inches / 15.24 cm reduction in waist, hips, and abdomen – 1 month.
  • Cool Sculpting / Zeltiq – No reduction. Appearance claim only.
  • Liposonix (Ultrasound) – 1 inch loss at 4 months.
  • Ultrashape (Ultrasound) – 1 inch loss at 4 months.
  • Zerona Z6 – 6.2 inches / 15.78 cm reduction in upper abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs – 6 weeks.

Yes. The Emerald™ Laser is FDA-approved – That’s an even harder status to attain than ‘clinically-proven’. It means that Emerald™ has been put through rigorous scientific testing and has been shown to work for everyone.

Results can vary from person to person, depending on your lifestyle and body type. At your Free Consultation we’ll talk you through the results you can expect.

Very safe. Emerald™ has been rigorously tested and is FDA-approved – One of the hardest certificates to obtain in the scientific industry.

However, although the technology is very safe, it is not suitable for people with certain medical conditions. If you have had liver or kidney failure, heart disease, or if you wear a pacemaker, Emerald™ will not be suitable for you. It is also not possible to treat pregnant or lactating women with the technology.

We carry out a full medical assessment before starting your treatment, so if you are not a suitable candidate, we will find out before your programme begins.

There are usually no side effects at all - No bruising, no swelling, no redness, and no downtime. Emerald™ is the perfect 'walk-in walk-out' treatment.

The results are long term, but this is affected by your lifestyle. To give an example, if someone consumes 4000 calories a day, although they will lose inches during the Emerald™ treatments, they will quickly put these inches back on.

Sensible eating with regular and appropriate exercise will help you maintain your new body.

Emerald™ treats overall body circumference while allowing you to focus on stubborn areas of fat and cellulite. Please examine the image below for the possible treatment options:

Emerald™ Treatment Areas at VL Aesthetics

We recommend that you drink plenty of water which will help your body to break down the fat.

To make sure the energy released by your body is not converted back into fat, we recommend a low calorie diet on the day of your treatment and on the day after your treatment. For the very best results, we recommend a low calorie diet throughout the course of your Emerald™ treatments.

You will be able to see improvements after the very first session. However, the number of treatments that you require depends on your aims and objectives.

Yes. At your Free Consultation we can organise a payment plan that suits you.

Located just outside of the town centre on Kingmoor Road, we are very easy to get to and have lots of free parking space – We’re on the left past Austin Friars School heading towards Rockliffe, or if you’re coming of the bypass on Kingmoor Road (East) roundabout follow the sign for Etterby under the low bridge and we’re ¼ of a mile on the right.
