Erchonia, driven by our commitment to research, has significantly contributed to the global body of knowledge concerning low-level lasers. In addition to the empirical evidence substantiating our claims, each new level (1) clinical trial we sponsor provides us with a more unique understanding of the diverse biological responses that occur when low-level laser therapy (3LT®) is applied to living tissue. The new knowledge gained becomes the foundation for our future studies. Our application of low-level laser therapy in the GREEN spectrum is no exception.
Erchonia changed the medical community when it discovered 635nm laser effects on fat cells, and with this foundation, Erchonia examined different ways to affect adipocytes and their surrounding tissue, and Verjú was born.
WE PROUDLY INTRODUCE VERJÚ – THE FIRST AND ONLY GREEN LASER FDA CLEARED!
As with all great technological advancements, our pursuit to develop the most advanced non-invasive body contouring procedure stemmed from unrelenting determination and a commitment to the scientific method. Because of this, we have developed a more efficient laser device for body contouring and appearance of cellulite.
Verjú offers critical advancements:
- Concurrent body contouring and cellulite treatment
- Shorter treatment times
- Greater overall inch loss
- User-independent treatment
- Convenient patient protocol
VERJÚ BY ERCHONIA® —REVOLUTIONARY & EVIDENCE BASED
Below is an electromagnetic chart of radiation and was the basis for our theory. This chart indicates that there is more energy in a green photon than a red photon. What is interesting to note is that according to so-called experts, everything in the electromagnetic radiation chart penetrates through or deep into the body except visible light. This theory we believe may be flawed based on the fact the energy in the visible spectrum has about 40% more energy per photon than infrared light and this has nothing to do with power of the laser which is measured in milliwatts or watts. If low level laser therapy works by cell transfer and not power, then our theory could be correct.
Erchonia has completed 6 separate clinical trials demonstrating the utility of 635nm (red) laser to safely and effectively collapse enlarged fat cells. Verjú delivers a wavelength that carries more energy at 532nm (green) and as a result, liberates more lipid material while stimulating the synthesis of type I and III collagen.
VERJÚ BY ERCHONIA: A COMMITMENT TO RESEARCH
Verjú is supported by solid histological and clinical evidence, evidence that ensures your patients will undergo a proven non-invasive body contouring and cellulite treatment that is free of pain, side effects, or recovery time. Verjú made history by becoming the first ever green non-invasive procedure for circumference reduction to be granted FDA market clearance; this monumental occasion actually created a new category with the FDA called OLI-Fat Reduction Laser. After our historic clearance, we remained steadfast in unlocking the potential benefits of LLLT by exploring subtle changes within the adipocyte function that could modulate DNA expression, protein, and hormone synthesis, ultimately affecting endocrine function and the immune system.

CELLULITE REDUCTION & DOCUMENTED RESULTS
According to the doctors that performed the Verjú cellulite clinical trial using the green laser, the 4 measurement points in the Nurnberger-Muller scale that was implemented, may not be sensitive enough to measure the changes the doctors were seeing with their eyes and that by using a 10 point scale, it may have even produced better results.

NURNBERGER-MULLER CELLULITE DEFINITION SCALE
The Nurnberger-Muller scale has been published in many papers but not many if any have implemented this scale in a level (1) blinded and controlled clinical trial. The reason is that there are only 4 grades of cellulite and to change from 1 grade to another would be a 25% difference based on the doctor’s perception of cellulite reduction. Please see an example of the scale below.
No dimpling or apparent visible alterations to the skin surface upon standing or lying down or upon pinching the skin.
No dimpling or apparent visible alterations to the skin surface upon standing or lying down. Dimpling appears with the pinch test or muscular contraction.
Dimpling appears spontaneously when standing but not when lying down. The orange peel appearance of the skin is evident to the naked eye, without need for manipulation.
Dimpling is spontaneously present when both standing and lying down, evident to the naked eye without need for manipulation; Orange peel skin surface appearance with raised areas and nodules. In addition to classifying cellulite severity, the Nurnberger-Muller scale can be used to assess changes in severity following treatment intervention. Assessments using the Nurnberger-Muller scale were made at baseline, 2 weeks (following the last treatment session) and 6 weeks (4 weeks after the last treatment session) for the Erchonia clinical study.
