Erchonia’s Verjú laser system is a revolutionary office device designed specifically for the treatment of cellulite. Verjú is the only FDA cleared, clinically proven, non-invasive cellulite laser technology on the market for treating cellulite of the waist, hips, thighs and arms. Verjú is safe, pain-free, has no side effects, and requires no recovery time after the treatment. The Verjú utilizes Erchonia’s patented generated low level unique green lasers which target the pockets of uneven fat causing cellulite just under the skin in the thighs, buttocks and lower abdomen. Dr. Lyle Back is a board certified Philadelphia area plastic surgeon who is one of the US pioneers in this modality.

How does VERJÚ work?

Unlike other technologies, Verjú uses Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to painlessly stimulate the body’s fat cells to open “leaky” pores in the cells’ walls. Dr. Back explains that, “Through these leaky pores, the lipid material (i.e., the fat) is released, allowing the cell to collapse and shrink to a smaller size. Also unlike other technologies, the process does not kill or remove the fat cell. Believe it or not, the fat cell is not the enemy; it’s the size of the fat cell that is harmful to your health.  The collapsing of the formerly bulging cells leads to a smoother skin appearance and a decrease overall in the amount of fat in the area. So you smooth away the cellulite and lose inches of fat – all at the same time! There is ZERO pain involved and ZERO down time – you can continue all your usual daily activities without interruption! ”


What areas of the body can I treat?

Verjú can work on areas of the body that tend to deposit cellulite, such as the lower abdomen, waist, hips and buttocks, thighs and knees. And all of these areas can be treated at the same time, in about 30 minutes (15 minutes, front and back)!


What does it feel like?

Patients are asked to lie on a comfortable massage table, with the target areas positioned directly under the lasers. A technician will turn the Verjú on and the patient will see rotating green laser beams but will not feel any heat. Many people read, work on their tablet, or even take a nap during their treatment.


When will I see results?

“This depends on how fast your lymphatic system can process the liquefied fat and toxins.”  Says Dr. Back.  He adds, “Age and lifestyle are a few items that may influence how fast you see results. In an ideal situation, patients should begin to notice a difference within just two weeks.
To optimize results, we recommended that you make diet and lifestyle changes, including drinking 64 ounces of water per day and cut back on coffee, alcohol and soft drinks. We recommend the concurrent use of a special anti-cellulite lotion to enhance results. Included with every treatment session is a complimentary deep tissue galvanic lymphatic massage which also accelerates and improves results.” Typical inch loss totals with a full series of treatments (6 or more) are between 3 – 12 inches overall!


How long will results last?

The length of results can be permanent depending on you, and your lifestyle changes.  A holistic approach is important not only to maintain these results, but for the overall benefits to your health.


How long are treatments?

Only about 30 minutes – you can easily fit them into a busy schedule. During a Verjú treatment, patients are asked to lie on a massage table, directly under the spinning green lasers. A technician will position the device and adjust the flexible laser “arms”, which can conform to virtually any position to most effectively target the desired trouble areas.
The spinning green laser light will be visible on the surface of the skin – but you feel no heat, nothing, as they coax the fat calls into shrinking! Treatments will last for 30 minutes (15 minutes on each side). Treatments are recommended every other day, or within 72 hours of the last treatment to obtain the best results. A series of treatments over 2 – 3 weeks should do the trick!

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet?

Clinical research has proven that Verjú is safe and effective without supplements, diet or exercise. Certified doctors trained in diet, lifestyle, and nutritional methods will recommend supplements, food intake changes, lifestyle and lymphatic massage to optimize your results. “However, many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after the VERJÚ treatment,”  says Dr. Back

Does Verjú work for overweight patients?

Even overweight patients can benefit from Verjú.  A doctor expert working with you on your nutrition, diet and lifestyle changes will be the best choice to maximize your results. Dr. Back points out that, “Not everyone having cellulite is overweight, but controlling weight and improving your general health definitely helps control cellulite. Some lifestyle changes may be necessary and will only enhance the results for the Verjú ‘treatments.’
