ZERONA™ is a non-invasive, body slimming laser treatment, which is designed to remove fat and inches from an individual’s body – with or without diet and exercise. Unlike surgical body contouring procedures, such as liposuction (“lipoplasty”), ZERONA™ laser treatment offers zero surgery, zero pain, and zero downtime. It utilizes patented and clinically proven Erchonia® Low Level Laser technology. ZERONA™ is a revolutionary method that is intended to slim stubborn pockets of fat from nearly any area of the body: the tummy, back, hips, thighs, buttocks, bra-line, love handles, chin and neck, and arms.

Low Level Lasers have been used for more than 40 years in treatment for such conditions as chronic pain, wound healing, and many other orthopedic conditions.

How does ZERONA™ laser treatment work?

This new, non-invasive body sculpting procedure is unlike other cosmetic procedures, as it has the proven ability to remove inches from enlarged subcutaneous fat regions through laser emulsification. The ZERONA™ non-heated laser procedure can have a dramatic effect on an individual’s body because it reduces the volume of voluminous adipose (fat) tissue.

Since 2001, the Erchonia Laser Scanner has been used as a supplemental laser treatment in tumescent liposuction; it helps to prep the body before surgery by zapping and liquefying fat cells. Medical professionals soon realized that this process is able to melt fat without dieting and produce optimal outcomes on its own. During the ZERONA™ treatment, the liquefied fat moves from the inside of the cell through a temporary cell membrane, to the outside of the cell. The liquefied fat is then released into interstitial space (interspaces of tissue), absorbed by the lymphatic system, and passed through the body during its regular cycle of detoxification. Inches are reduced off of areas such as the waist, hips, and thighs due to the fact that millions of fat cells have shrunken.

Am I a good candidate for ZERONA™?

This new laser treatment is appropriately suited for men and women who are between 15 and 40 pounds overweight, and have a storage of excess amounts of fat in certain areas of the body. These individuals should also be physically and psychologically healthy with realistic goals and expectations.

How does ZERONA™ laser fat removal differ from liposuction?

ZERONA™ is a safe, painless, and non-invasive body slimming alternative to surgery. Although it is not intended to replace the natural methods of weight loss, ZERONA™ is still reliable in helping a patient shed multiple inches and reduce the amount of stored, excess fat on his or her body.

Liposuction (“lipoplasty”), on the other hand, is designed to remove the entire area of fat cells from deposits that sit below the skin. As opposed to the non-surgical ZERONA™ treatment, liposuction is an invasive procedure that is performed using a hollow, stainless steel tube (cannula), with the assistance of powerful suctioning. Liposuction requires general anesthesia (absence of pain sensation over the entire body) or local anesthesia (numbing confined to one part of the body). ZERONA™, a liposuction alternative, only requires a low level laser that is externally applied to stimulate the fat cells, as well as emulsify and release fat.

What are the benefits of ZERONA™, a non-surgical liposuction method?

There are numerous benefits associated with ZERONA™. It offers zero surgery, zero pain, zero downtime, and a dramatic loss of inches. Two-week clinical trials have reported that the average patient lost 3.5 inches from his or her waist, hips, thighs, bra-line, and upper arms. With the help of a qualified ZERONA™ doctor, a patient may gain a greater sense of self-confidence in the process.

How long does treatment take?

The ZERONA™ laser procedure typically takes only six, quick and painless treatments, which are administered over a two-week period. During the procedure, the patient will lie under the ZERONA™ slimming device for 40 minutes total – 20 minutes on the front and 20 minutes on the back. If more than 72 hours pass between appointments (each session is to be performed every other day), some of the fat may be reabsorbed by the fat cells.

A patient can discuss his or her options with a ZERONA ™ doctor regarding follow-up treatment sessions after the two-week period.

What are the side effects and risks of ZERONA™?

Loss of inches and fat are the only reported outcomes of this non-invasive body slimming treatment. ZERONA™ is completely non-surgical and there are no known associated side effects and risks.

How do I properly prepare for this laser fat melting procedure?

During a consultation, prospective patients will gain insight to what ZERONA™ entails, and how they can play a role in positively impacting the results of the procedure. In order to maintain and optimize results, it is important that the patient strictly follows the doctor’s guidelines and instructions.

When will the final results appear?

Most people see the difference in their bodies after four to six sessions; some can see results after only a few treatment sessions – their clothes will fit more loosely. Depending on his or her condition and the doctor’s recommendation, the patient can begin an additional series of ZERONA™ treatments immediately following the previous set of treatment sessions.

Is ZERONA™ permanent?

There is a treatment protocol that patients should commit to during the two-week period, such as eating healthy, exercising (walking at least 30 minutes a day), and remaining hydrated by drinking eight to 10 glasses of water a day. It is especially important to refrain from alcohol and caffeine, because they can both interfere with the lymphatic process and metabolizing fat, ultimately decreasing the success of the patient’s results.

By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise, patients can expect long-term, laser weight loss results. In addition to treating patients who are already active but would like to still remove excess pockets of fat, ZERONA™ is also used as a “jumpstart” to losing weight. This body slimming laser treatment is helping to motivate individuals regarding diet and exercise, encouraging a healthier lifestyle.

How long is the recovery period?

There is no downtime. Patients can return to their normal activities directly after treatment.
