ZERONA® The first non-invasive body contouring procedure to effectively remove excess fat.
Unlike invasive weight loss surgery, ZERONA® is applied externally. This revolutionary method provides results without the dangers associated with surgery, while at the same time allowing patients to remain active during treatment. The ZERONA® protocol utilizes Erchonia®’s patented and clinically proven low-level laser technology.
Treatment with Zerona Laser is easy, painless and carefree
Each session takes less than an hour; the Zerona low-level laser is used for a total of 40 minutes. The laser is applied to the targeted area, which is generally a combination of the waist, hips, thighs, arms, chest, knees, ankles and back or bra fat for 20 minutes on the front side (anterior). The client then turns over and the very same treatment is applied to the back side (posterior). The minimum suggested treatment period is two weeks, with three full sessions each week.
You simply lay in a comfortable, stationary position for twenty minutes at a time, in a relaxed environment, while the cold laser does all the work. Since the Zerona uses cold laser technology, you feel nothing during the procedure. You may feel a bit different and lighter as you exit the treatment center due to the bio-stimulation that begins in your body.
Four separate histological studies were performed to assess the efficacy of laser in the emulsification (liquefaction) of fat. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were utilized to analyze adipose tissue. SEM and TEM images revealed the collapse of adipose arrangements after laser therapy. The voluminous state of adipocyte cells was reduced due to the emulsification process. The fatty material is evacuated from the cell and moves into extracellular space. The voluminous nature of adipocytes due to the accumulation of fatty material is what gives rise to enlarged subcutaneous fat regions. Zerona induces the formation of a transitory pore in the membrane of the fat cell. The pore enables the fatty material to seep out across the aperture and into extracellular space. The following images show the result of laser energy on a single fat cell and a group of fat cells.
