ZERONA works by utilizing the Erchonia® Laser Scanner. Clinical studies have demonstrated that the low-level laser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within fat cells. The liquefied fat is then released 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.
ZERONA treatments can be done effectively on essentially any part of the body where there are localized subcutaneous deposits of fat, especially those that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients start with treating the waist, hips and tops of thighs which can all be targeted in one treatment session as they are within the target areas of the 5 laser lights.
By following the recommended guidelines for success with ZERONA, patients can expect to experience a combined loss of anywhere from 3 – 15 inches from the waist, hips and thighs and a reduction in clothes size. Additionally, early patients have noticed an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
As a low-level laser therapy, ZERONA is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and lipodissolve and other non-invasive devices which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. ZERONA treatments cause no bruising, scarring and zero downtime. Anesthesia is not used and patients can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment. There are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat. ZERONA is not recommended for patients with thyroid disease, diabetes or any other disorders where the metabolic system could be impaired and/or their lymphatic and hepatic system is unable to process fat.
Disclaimer: Even though the Zerona and Lapex have been proven effective in independent studies, as it is with any medical procedure, results vary and are not guaranteed. A healthy lifestyle is important.
