Zerona LipoLaser is the first F.D.A Approved, non-invasive body contouring procedure to effectively remove excess fat without the negative side effects associated with surgery. Zerona utilizes painless laser technology to safely break up fat and dissolve it from your trouble spots (hips, thighs, stomach). The Zerona technology was shown to release the fat from fat cells while leaving the skin, tissues, and blood vessels unharmed. The fat cells are only made smaller; they are not injured in any way.
About the Procedure / How it works
During the procedure patients most often do not feel anything, the laser that is being administrated is a low level laser that does not produce heat, it is completely non-invasive & painless, and has never shown any side effects. Similar Low Level Lasers have a long safety history and have been in use for over 40 years for treatment of many different conditions such a chronic pain, wound healing, and many others.
The Zerona cold lasers provide patients with a safe alternative to surgery like liposuction, which can result in bruising, swelling, and damage to other tissues. Unlike other non-invasive approaches, Zerona low-level lasers do not rely on heating or freezing tissue, which can cause discomfort. After each treatment, the patient is able to go about their normal daily activities, no matter how strenuous. This means no time off from work and no days away from the gym!
Zerona Q & A
Is it FDA Approved?
YES, Zerona is the first FDA approved laser for slimming of the hips, waist, and thighs. The Zerona procedure was proven through a double blind, randomized, multi-site, and placebo controlled study in which patients averaged a loss of 3.5 inches, and some lost up to as much as 9 inches compared to the placebo group that lost only half an inch.
What areas of the body can I use Zerona on?
The Zerona® treatment can be used effectively on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients start with treating the waist, hips and thighs which can all be targeted in 1 treatment. Other areas include upper arms, bra-line fat, inner knees, back fat and buttocks.
How long do results last?
By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise you can expect long-term results. Zerona® is especially ideal for 2 types of people: those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat or drop body fat % OR those who want to use the Zerona® and the recommended lifestyle protocol to “jump start” their slimming efforts as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle.
Is it safe?
Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Zerona® low-level laser 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 Zerona®. The Zerona® treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scaring and 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.
Are there any side effects?
No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
How is it different from other “non-invasive” body slimming techniques?
The Zerona® laser is the only completely safe and effective non-invasive treatment for body slimming on the market today. There is zero possibility of bruising or injury unlike Coolscultping and SmartLipo.
What can I expect at my appointments?
You expect 40 minutes to relax, read, or do absolutely nothing. The Zerona treatment is completely painless. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. Each treatment you will be met by your technician who will position the laser at the desired areas of the body, he/she will step out for 20 minutes while the front of your body is treated and then will return to reset for the backside of your body for an additional 20 minutes. After you are done you can get back to your normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, no pain, swelling, or any discomfort. This is a symptom-free process except for losing unwanted inches.
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 Zerona® 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.
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.
Are there any limitations to what I can do if I’m using Zerona?
No. During the 2 week 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 30 minutes a day) and abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it which can decrease your results.
