ZERONA is a new body-sculpting procedure designed to remove fat and contour the body without invasive surgery. Unlike other procedures, ZERONA allows the patient to continue their daily activities without interruptions from surgery, pain, or wounds. ZERONA works by utilizing the Erchonia® LipoLASER (FDA market cleared for laser assisted liposuction) to literally shrink the adipose tissue (fat cells). The excess fat is passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification. 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 a half an inch.
About the Procedure:
During the procedure patients most often do not feel anything, the laser that is being administered is a low level laser that does not produce heat, it is completely noninvasive, and has never shown any recorded side effects. Low Level Lasers have been in use for over 40 years for treatment of many different conditions such as chronic pain, wound healing, and many other orthopedic conditions.
About the Protocol:
Treatment takes 40 minutes and needs to be administered three times a week for two weeks for best results. The laser will be applied over the targeted area i.e. waist, hips, and thighs for 20 minutes and then the patient will turn over and do the same treatment on the opposite side. This should be a minimum, for maximum results consult your physician about doing more than one two week session.
What to Expect:
After completion of the two week protocol clinical trials resulted in an average of 3.5 inches lost; and some patient’s losing up to as much as 9 inches. As with any procedure results will vary and may be more dramatic from one patient to the next. This is not a quick weight loss program we are targeting the adipose tissue and are not taking off excess water weight. We are removing the excess fat to successfully shape the body for a more desirable outcome. Think of the last time your waist was 2-3 inches smaller, your hips had that natural curve, and your thighs were thinner. With the ZERONA treatment you now have an alternative to a shapelier figure without having to endure the fear, and sometimes painful process of a surgical procedure.
