Many people are interested in losing weight or toning body areas that they want to enhance. While dieting and exercising can assist in weight loss, oftentimes, there will still be places that people would like to contour for a better visual effect.
Zerona is a new, FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment that uses laser technology to reduce excess fat. It may be a good option for those who wish to reduce fat in certain areas but don’t want invasive surgical procedures.
What Is Zerona?
Zerona is a low-level laser treatment designed to slim or contour certain areas of the body. It is considered to be a cold laser treatment, but its output doesn’t use the extreme cold that cryolipolysis treatments such as CoolSculpting do.
Instead, Zerona passes laser energy through the tissues to damage the fat cells (rather than destroy them), which results in small holes in the cell membranes. The holes release the fat content of the cells, which is then naturally passed through the lymphatic system.
Zerona is not considered to be a weight loss solution. Instead, it is intended to reduce stubborn fat deposits that appear on certain common areas of the body.
Typically, the treatment will aim for areas in your waist, chest, back, neck, upper arms, thighs, love handles, hips, and ankles. You can discuss the areas that you would like to improve with our team at Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center during a free consultation with us.
What Are the Advantages of Zerona Laser Treatments?
Zerona laser treatments provide many benefits. First, this is a completely non-surgical fat reduction treatment.
Second, the Zerona laser treatment process is very quick. Typically, clients will spend only forty minutes for each procedure. Finally, there is virtually no downtime associated with receiving a Zerona treatment. After the treatment, our patients may resume their daily activities.
Zerona is also a great way to jump-start a weight loss program. It can enhance the slimming effects of healthy lifestyle changes, like drinking more water, eating a healthy diet, and getting more exercise.
If you’ve already been dieting and exercising for a while but can’t seem to get rid of specific fat pockets, this procedure can help to eliminate them.
How Does the Zerona Treatment Process Work?
Before you undergo a Zerona treatment, you’ll meet with one of our experienced team members to discuss the results you would like to see. We’ll work with you to understand your needs and examine the areas you want to reduce. We will also discuss your medical history and the potential side effects of the procedure.
Typically, you may need to undergo multiple Zerona sessions to see the full results. Our team will design an appropriate treatment plan to obtain the results you wish to see.
Once you’ve decided to go ahead with Zerona laser treatments, you’ll come to our office for the scheduled appointment. You’ll lie on one of our comfortable tables for 20 minutes on your front, followed by 20 minutes on your back.
During these sessions, our qualified team members will target the specified areas using the Zerona lasers, usually three to six inches away from your skin.
It’s important to drink lots of water before and after your treatment. This can assist your lymphatic system with releasing the fat that will be eliminated from the targeted cells.
For best results, you should follow a healthy diet well balanced in carbohydrates, fat, and protein. Try to get at least 15 minutes of vigorous daily exercise. You should avoid any caffeine or alcohol for the duration of your treatments and drink the recommended eight glasses of water per day.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
It is common for patients to undergo multiple treatments over a period of several weeks to obtain the best results. You may receive treatments every 72 hours. However, a member of our team will design an appropriate treatment program with you.
We’ll discuss the number of sessions that you may need to obtain the desired results during your consultation. Keep in mind that while Zerona can result in some weight loss, its main benefit is body contouring, which is designed to get rid of stubborn fat deposits.
How Soon Will I See Results?
It takes time for your lymphatic system to eliminate the fat that has been released from your cells. Thus, your visible results may take a few days to a few weeks to become visible. Additional sessions with Zerona may be required to see full-scale changes.
Each person’s results will vary according to the areas that were treated, how many sessions were completed, and the length of time on the program. You must also take care to follow a healthy diet and exercise program before, during, and after your treatments. Doing so can help to improve your results.
How Long Do Zerona Laser Treatment Results Last?
To maintain your Zerona results, you’ll need to follow a healthy diet and get regular exercise. With Zerona, your fat cells will shrink due to the laser that will cause them to expel fat. However, the cells may grow again in the future if you gain weight.
