Use Lasers To Melt Your Fat

Weight loss is something many people struggle with and often turn to cosmetic surgery procedures to help with problem areas of the body. But if liposuction or other invasive procedures aren't something you're ready for, Zerona might be an option. Zerona is a non-invasive procedure that uses lasers to break down fat cells that are then naturally eliminated from the body.

Zerona Treatment Results

According to the manufacturer, Zerona patients lost an average of 3.64 inches from the thighs, waist and hips. It can also help to tighten loose skin. Zerona uses low level laser energy to liquefy fat in cells. The liquefied fat is then absorbed by the lymphatic system and flushed out of your body.

Treatment Sessions

A typical Zerona session will take about 40 minutes, 20 minutes per each side of your body. The laser light will be positioned at targeted areas of fat on one side of your body for 20 minutes and then at areas on the other side of your body for 20 minutes.

Although one treatment can produce weight loss results, it is recommended by the manufacturer that patients have around six sessions for optimum weight loss. Each 40 minute session should occur every other day with no more than 72 hours between sessions. If you wait longer than 72 hours to have another session, some of your liquefied fat might be absorbed by your body again.

Lifestyle Changes Recommended After Treatment

A commitment to healthy eating and regular exercise will of course help with your weight loss and compliment the Zerona treatments. It is also recommended that you drink 8 to 10 glasses of water each day during your treatment course, avoid caffeine and alcohol and walk or exercise 30 minutes a day to help flush out the liquefied fat.

Recovery

Because no anesthesia is used for Zerona treatments and there is no down time, you can resume your normal activities after your session. You will not feel any heat and won't experience any redness or swelling.

Conditions That Would Prevent You From Having Zerona Treatments

People who have a pacemaker or women who are pregnant should not receive Zerona treatments. Additionally, anyone with an impaired immune or lymphatic system due to diabetes or another condition my not respond as well to the treatment.

Cost

Treatment cost varies with geographic location and also is dependent upon the number of sessions required and total body area to be treated. The cost can run anywhere from $1,500 to $3,500.

Always discuss any type of cosmetic procedure, even non-invasive ones, with board certified doctors or dermatologists. Zerona could be a weight loss option for you if dieting hasn't worked and you are willing to follow post-procedure eating and exercising advice for maximum, long term results.
