Considering AirSculp, CoolSculpting, or Sculpsure?
You might want to look at a non-invasive, FDA approved procedure that does not kill fat cells.
The following is from a Dr. in Toronto Canada: I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in the United States and Canada. For a number of years, I have run teaching workshops for different liposuction techniques including ultrasonic liposuction, laser liposuction and radio frequency liposuction.
Not all body contouring patients want or desire surgery and I have been a big advocate of offering non-invasive options for those seeking moderate but noticeable body contouring improvements without surgery.
All of this is a background leading up to Zerona Laser slimming. I too was suspicious that a photochemical, non-thermal, non-invasive, no pain, no downtime device would produce any results; however having reviewed the literature and following my personal Zerona patient experiences, I do agree with Dr. Kenkel, the ASPS incoming president and respected researcher, that there is scientific evidence for a significant, consistent, predictable, noninvasive, non thermal photochemical effect of Zerona on the fat cell.
After purchasing the Zerona device, I conducted a study on my own patients and I was quite impressed with what the device can do. The Zerona is a high fluence, low level laser therapy involving an array of diode laser devices positioned above the body of the patient, there is no pain, no downtime and no recovery. The patient lies on their front side and on their back side during the procedure.
The 635 array of diode lasers emit up to 15 miliwatts at each source and focus the painless energy on the fat between the neck and the mid thighs. The characteristics of this diode laser light are such that over a series of treatments, an opening is created in the cell membrane of the fat cells and the in triglyceride contents of the fat cells are released into the space between the cells where they triglyceride are eliminated safely and effectively by the bodies normal carry protein systems.
The Zerona distribution and sales company SBMI, believes enough in their product that they will guarantee the 3-9 inches result in a patient or they will provide the MD and their patient with free round of treatments.
Zerona is great alternative to procedures like CoolSculpting, AirSculpt, and Sculpsure. While these treatments make no incision into the body, they will kill fat cells. Remember, when you kill fat and gain wait at a later time, it will come back in new and unwanted areas.
Advantage of Zerona LipoLaser Treatments
Zerona is a recently developed method designed by Erchonia Medical to get the effects of liposuction in a non-surgical manner. Instead of getting cosmetic surgery liposuction, a specially designed laser is used to destroy and mobilize fat cells through the skin. There is no need for an incision and no need for anesthesia.The procedure does not produce the same pain, bruising and swelling that many patients getting traditional liposuction experience. In addition, there is no scar at all because no incision was made. There is no “down” time after Zerona laser treatments because it is not actually a surgical procedure so you don’t have to take time off from work or comply with the traditional recovery period instructions, such as bed rest or limited activity after the laser liposuction treatment.
While liposuction is a highly invasive procedure, there are now non surgical alternatives which have been introduced to the market. These non-invasive methods allow you to experience almost same dramatic benefits associated with liposuction without going under the knife. There are neither tiny incisions nor cannula (the thin hollow tube which was originally used to break up fat and siphon it out of the body). Zerona, is an FDA approved Liposuction Alternative having the benefit of being safe, efficient, and less traumatic for the body and making there no recovery time.
Non Surgical Liposuction Oxymoron
And here is the point where we would like to shed light on a prominent misconception: There is no such thing as Non Surgical LipoSuction! Even Wikipedia has a page dedicated to Non Surgical Liposuction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-surgical_liposuction) but this is a huge oxymoron! As we described in previous articles (What is liposuction) one of the common steps of all liposuction techniques is the suction of fat via cannula! In order for a cannula to reach the fat layer its necessary to make incisions (tiny or bigger)! But when speaking about incisions we speak about Surgery! This is why the term “Non surgical liposuction” is a glorious oxymoron and should be replaced with the term “Non Surgical Liposuction Alternatives” or simply Liposuction Alternatives!
How do they work?
Once the fat is released from the fat cell it is then transported out of your body via your body’s own mechanisms of expelling waste and metabolizing fatty compounds (mostly by means of the lymphatic system). Sometimes a bit of cardio after the treatment can improve the elimination of fat.
Liposuction Alternatives Benefits
Liposuction alternatives appeal to liposuction candidates for a number of reasons.
The first is the convenience and simplicity of the techniques. Most people don’t like the idea of being cut open if they can avoid it—so naturally a technique that doesn’t involve cutting is preferable if you can avoid going under the knife.
Non surgical techniques have the potential to be more gentle to your body; you don’t have to deal with bleeding, bruising, and swelling, and much of the discomfort is reduced.
There is also no need for general anesthesia, which carries many risks and should be avoided when possible.
The Recovery period of a non surgical technique is practically zero
Non surgical options are generally cost-effective comparing to liposuction
