What is Zerona®?
Zerona® is the first non-invasive, FDA approved, body contouring procedure to effectively remove excess fat without the negative side effects associated with surgical methods. Although this technology was originally utilized to help assist tumescent liposuction procedures, it was found that the cold laser treatment alone helped patients to reduce inches from their waist, hip and thighs. This is a quick and painless way to lose unwanted subcutaneous fat.
How Does it Work?
The cold laser technology behind the Zerona® procedure was shown to exclusively release the cellular contents of fat cells while leaving the capillaries and other cells within the interstitial space intact. The release of the fat cell contents is the result of the disruption of the cell’s membrane. This membrane disruption, called a transitory pore, is the result of low-level laser stimulation.
Prior to laser exposure, fat cells have a regular, cluster shape. Within minutes of low level laser exposure, fat cells begin to develop transitory pores. This pore allows the evacuation of the cell’s contents into extracellular space. Once the contents of the fat cell have been emptied, they are released into interstitial space where it can be passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification.
How Long Does It Take?
The typical treatment range is between 6 and 12 40-minute treatments three times a week. The amount of treatments needed will be discussed during your initial consult. Our trained and certified consultants will evaluate the areas of concern and discuss treatment options to best fit your needs.
