We have all dreamed of a magic machine, pill, or procedure that would instantly make us slimmer. For years, traditional liposuction (and a combination of healthy diet and exercise) was the closest option to realizing this dream; but now body contouring technology has gone one step further with the introduction of Zerona®.
Zerona® isn’t magic (in fact it is laser technology), but it can provide exceptional body slimming results (similar to liposuction) with no surgery, no pain, and no recovery time. Instead of traditional liposuction where the excess fat is surgically removed from the body with a tube, the Zerona® treatment is done outside of the body using a low-level laser. This laser targets fat storing cells or adipose tissue (the fatty tissue that makes up those “problem areas” on our body) that is close to the skin surface and creates a very small pore in each fat cell’s protective membrane. This causes the excess fatty matter in the cell to be pushed out and eventually flushed out through our body’s natural detoxification system.
Because the fat is pushed out naturally, instead of surgically, patients can return to their daily activities right after the laser treatment. On the other hand, a single Zerona® cannot remove as much fat as traditional liposuction, so patients must come back for an average of six treatments.
Zerona® has been proven effective to reduce cellulite, contour and reshape the body and tighten and tone loose or sagging skin. Like traditional liposuction, it can also target specific problem areas of the body to reduce fat and trim inches.
Zerona® may not be the best option for severely overweight or obese patients. Also, like any other weight loss plan needs to be done in conjunction with healthy eating and exercise.
