Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that the Zerona LipoLaser 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.

You can expect 60 to 120 minutes to relax, read or do absolutely nothing. 

The Zerona treatment is completely painless. There is no freezing, no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. 

Each treatment you will be met by your trained 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 the next 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.

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 6 to 9 treatments.

Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire fat cell 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, Zerona is a 100% non-invasive FDA approved procedure 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.

The Zerona laser is the only completely safe and effective non-invasive treatment for body slimming on the market today. 

There is no possibility of injury. No technician will be pushing on you or using any device against your body like with AirSculpt or CoolSculpting. You simply lay beneath the Zerona lights.

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.

No. During your treatment period you can continue your normal activities. 

It is strongly recommended that you commit to and follow the Zerona protocol: stay hydrated (100 ounces of water or 3 liters), continue to eat healthy and exercise (walk at least 30 minutes a day) and keep alcohol consumption at a minimum, Alcohol can interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it which can decrease your results.

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.

No, Zerona treatments are considered elective and are not covered by insurance.

Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Zerona LipoLaser and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction, 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.

Yes, with two exceptions. 

If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, Zerona should not be used. 

Additionally, if you have a pacemaker, this treatment may not be for you. 

There are no known detrimental risks but potential unknown risks may exist. 

Zerona may not be as effective on patients with diabetes or thyroid disorders where the metabolic system is potentially impaired.

No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.

The Zerona was FDA approved in 2010 and has been used by physicians since 2001.

Yes, with the Zerona treatment and by following the recommended guidelines for success, we saw an average loss of 3.65 inches reported in our clinical trial on the waist, hips, and thighs. See Austin Body Contouring client results here.

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.

Yes, with additional treatments you can expect to see improved results. 

You can start an additional series of Zerona treatments immediately following your last treatment. 

Speak to your technician  about any discount programs that may apply.

It is recommended that you wait until after your last postpartum visit with your doctor (usually 6 weeks after birth) to begin your Zerona treatment. 

It is not recommended if you are breast feeding.  Click here to see a list of contraindications.
