Austin Body Contouring


Zerona LipoLaser was FDA approved in 2010 has been proven to assist with body contouring by removing body fat and reducing inches without invasive surgery. 

There are a few key steps to success that should be incorporated in order to achieve maximum results.

By following these steps every day, you will maximize your results for reducing body fat and excess inches.  

Begin the following protocol prior to starting your treatments; continue during your treatments and for as long as 2 to 4 weeks after your last treatment.


It is important to maintain the stated protocol for at least 2 to 4 weeks after your final treatment as 20-40% of your results will occur during this time.

Achieve Your Maximum Success For Eliminating Stubborn Body Fat and Excess Inches by adhering to the following protocol:


Regular Niacin (not flush-free or time-released niacin). Purchase regular niacin (which is a B vitamin, specifically B3) in 100 mg. capsules. Take 1 capsule with water 30 minutes after you have eaten, taking a total of 400 mg per day. Do not take niacin on an empty stomach. Niacin may make you feel flushed, warm, and/or itchy for a short period of time. This is referred to as a "NIACIN FLUSH".


Drink 100 fl. oz. of water each day (3 liters), with no more than 25 ounces in an hour. The released body fat needs to exit the body via the kidneys. Learn more about drinking enough water and your treatments.

Walk (Exercise)

Maintain your regular workout routine. If you do not workout, walk at least 10 minutes each day. We need exercise to stimulate the lymphatic system in order to help remove the fat through normal detox.

Compression Garments

such as Spanx or Under Armour should be worn as much as possible during all phases of the lipo laser treatments.

Eliminate Alcohol

completely. This allows your kidneys, liver and lymphatic systems to quickly purge the excess body fat.

Milk Thistle

200 mg of milk thistle on a daily basis will help detox the liver helping the liver maximize the ultimate removal of the newly released emulsified fats and triglycerides.

Manage Caffeine by Increasing Water

Caffeine causes dehydration which will inhibit elimination. If you do drink coffee, we ask that you add 2 additional ounces for each ounce of caffeinated beverage you have to drink. For example, if you drink one 10 oz. cup up coffee, it is recommended that one drinks 120 oz. of water that day.

Reduce "Bad" Fat Intake

You’ll achieve the best results by following a low-fat diet during and after treatment. Here’s more information on why and how to eat a low-fat diet during treatment. Focus on eating “Healthy” fats that are less saturated versus “Bad” fats that are more highly saturated. It’s perfectly OK to be following a Ketogenic diet or lifestyle keeping this in mind.

Watch for Constipation - Magnesium is a great option

The released body fat needs to exit the body via bowel movements. Therefore, it is important to eat plenty of fiber so as to avoid constipation. Magnesium is an amazing supplement that can help with constipation.

Vibration Plate usage provided by Austin Body Contouring after each treatment

Austin Body Contouring offers its patients the ability to use our vibration plate for 10 minutes after each lipolaser treatment. A vibration plate helps move the contents of the fat cells through the lymphatic system and subsequently out of the body through urination & bowel movements.


Perspiration is a great way to release the fat from the body once the fat has been released from your fat cells.

Lymphatic Massage & Dry Brushing

Help move the newly released fat from the interstitial space through the body and eventually leaving the body through urination and bowel movements. Dry Brushing is a great lymphatic stimulator as well as it is a good exfoliant for the skin.

Keep Your Appointments

Disruption of the treatment cycle will cause your results to suffer. A minimum of 6 treatments is recommended for all patients.

Another thing that sets our treatments apart from other clinics is the use of Triplanar Oscillation Vibration Therapy.

After your Laser Fat Loss treatment each patient under goes 10 minutes on this device. The platform vibrates at incredible speeds and in three separate planes of motion.

This sends sonic impulses through your feet and all the way up through your body. The vibration plate activates every muscle in your body from your feet up to your core.

This motion accelerates circulation causing the fat that was just released to be taken away from the tissues even faster.

Austin Body Contouring combines our vibration plates together with our Zerona LipoLasers to ensure our our patients results.

What You Can Expect

There are no needles, no incisions, and no recovery time needed. Zerona works by emulsifying adipose tissue which then releases into the interstitial space.

The excess body fat is then passed through the body during its normal course of bodily functions.  Dry Brushing is a great addition that will help stimulate your lymphatic system.

Zerona treatments are six to nine treatment sessions, administered over a 4 to 6 week time period.

During the procedure, patients feel nothing.

After you have started our protocol, clinical trials resulted in an average of 3.64 inches lost; with some patients losing as much as 9 inches. As with any procedure, results will and may be more dramatic from one patient to the next.

Lipolaser protocol
When starting your treatments, you will be placed in a room and you will:

Low-level laser (light) therapy, LLLT, is a therapeutic application of light delivered as photons. The ability of absorbed light able to induce physiological effects is known as photobiomodulation.

LLLT photobiomodulation is well-documented to provide clinical benefits of improved rates of healing attributed to anti-inflammatory effects, decreased pain, and enhanced tissue regeneration.

These clinical outcomes correlate to the mechanism of action of LLLT’s photobiomodulation effects of increased generation of ATP and the ability to modulate inflammatory signaling molecules known to influence rapid and optimal tissue healing repair and regeneration.

The clinical benefits of 635 nm LLLT is highlighted from a molecular mechanism of action perspective.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) also known as low-level level laser therapy is the use of red and near-infrared light to stimulate healing, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation.

The primary chromophores have been identified as cytochrome c oxidase in mitochondria, and calcium ion channels (possibly mediated by light absorption by opsins).

Secondary effects of photon absorption include increases in ATP, a brief burst of reactive oxygen species, an increase in nitric oxide, and modulation of calcium levels.

Tertiary effects include activation of a wide range of transcription factors leading to improved cell survival, increased proliferation and migration, and new protein synthesis.

There is a pronounced biphasic dose response whereby low levels of light have stimulating effects, while high levels of light have inhibitory effects. 


Patients with the following conditions should NOT be treated:

Make certain that patients suffering from basal metabolic disorder (i.e. hypothyroid) are stable in order to ensure positive results.

If the patient has a cold, fever or otherwise compromised health it is best to postpone treatment until the patient is feeling better.  This will optimize Zerona’s results.

Patients who have undergone liposuction will have varied results due to fat cells having been previously removed.
