Zerona Mechanism of Action:
A Zerona Laser is a non-invasive, effective and safe body contouring technology. It reduces fat from those areas in your body, which are unable to lose fat, despite all your efforts. Unlike many other fat-reduction procedures.
Zerona is painless and you are not required to follow any restriction after the procedure. Barring a few exceptions, the procedure is suitable for any individual who are medically healthy.Generally, despite a proper diet and exercise, your hip, waist and thighs may find it more difficult to shed fat than the other parts of the body.
Zerona is a non-invasive body contouring technology which enables you to reduce the subcutaneous fat from your hip, thighs and waist.
The laser technology leaves the other cells and capillaries between the fat cells untouched.
Target audience Zerona Laser is suitable for almost anyone in any age group. However, Zerona works best with patients who have been exercising regularly and having a healthy diet. The treatment, however, may not be suitable for you if you have one or all of the following conditions:
You have a pacemaker implanted.
You are pregnant or are breastfeeding.
The technology may not be as effective as with a medically healthy person, if you are suffering from diabetes or thyroid disorders.
Therefore, it always makes sense to consult your doctor before deciding to use the technology.
On an average, people who have used Zerona tend to lose 3.64 inches from the hip, waist and thighs. Though the duration may vary, people usually derive long-term benefits from the treatment. The results may become visible after just a few sessions when your clothes fit loosely. Generally, your family and friends notice the changes in your body shape after two weeks. To get the most out of the procedure, you must drink at least eight to ten glasses of water every day and have a healthy diet during the course of the procedure. The procedure is approved by FDA in the United States and has no side effects. Since the technique is non-invasive, there is no possibility of an injury. You are not required to follow any restrictions after you have used Zerona. Before you use Zerona Laser, it may be wise to talk to your physician first. To get the best results, carefully follow the instructions given during the procedure. Most doctors’ offices have the patient lie on a comfortable table for 20 minutes on each side while the five lasers are applied to the target areas simultaneously. Thousands have tried this procedure, and have lost an average of 3.64 inches around the waist. Imagine going from a large to a medium, or a medium to a small, just by relaxing for forty minutes, a few times a week. For a noninvasive, alternative medical solution to the traditional fat removal procedures and surgeries, consider use of the ZERONA® laser procedure.
How does it work?
Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that the Zerona® low level laser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
What can I expect at my appointments?
You can 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 physician or 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, nor pain, swelling or any discomfort. This is a symptom –free process except for losing unwanted inches
What happens if I miss an appointment?
It is not recommended that you miss an appointment. Prior to starting the Zerona® treatment, it is important that you are committed to the recommended lifestyle protocol which includes at least 6 treatments, every other day for 40 minutes and not to exceed 72 hours between treatments. If more than 72 hours intervenes, some of the fat may be uptaken by the fat cells again.
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. The Zerona® treatment was proven effective in a double-blind clinical trial on the waist, hips and thighs where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise.
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?
A. No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
How long has the Zerona® laser been used?
The Zerona® has been used in studies since 2008 and has been used by physicians in practice since early 2009. The same Erchonia® Low Level Laser technology has been used to safely assist with tumescent liposuction since 2001 as it is proven to cause fat to be released from fat cells immediately prior to liposuction surgery. From this important experience, the Zerona® technique was developed for effective, totally non-invasive body slimming.
Is it effective?
Yes, with the Zerona® treatment and by following the recommended guidelines for success, we saw an average loss of 3.64 inches reported in our clinical trial on the waist, hips, and thighs.
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.
