Zerona laser liposuction is the newest option in body sculpturing. It offers the benefits of less invasive therapy than regular liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits.
Advantage of Zerona Liposuction 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.
The Zerona treatment uses cold laser therapy rather than a high heat laser to dissolve fat, essentially melting it away to improve the appearance of the fatty areas and promote weight loss. Patients are completely comfortable during the no anesthesia procedure and are even allowed to read, relax, listen to music or sleep while being treated on a comfortable massage table in the cosmetic surgery or clinic rather than in an operating room.
In fact, Erchonia Medical presented study results to the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery which showed that patients lost an average of up to 6 inches from thighs, abdomen and buttocks after treatment with Zerona laser liposculpting. Some patients may lose much more weight and inches after only 2 weeks of treatment.
Erchonia Medical has a long standing reputation of developing “state of the art” lasers for cosmetic surgery uses including acne treatment, chronic pain treatment, carpal tunnel syndrome and breast augmentation.
Erchonia had also previously developed a laser liposuction treatment which used a laser to assist the mobilization of fat during traditional liposuction. Offering great results with little medical risk and no recovery time, this new Zerona laser liposuction treatment appears to be much better than traditional liposuction
Though many people are simply looking to lose stubborn fat deposits and improve their appearance, Zerona laser treatment may have an added benefit. Studies have shown that reducing fat deposits will help to lower low-density lipid in the blood which may have the benefit of reducing cholesterol levels and decreasing the chance for the development of cardiac problems.
This happens because people with large amounts of fat may become resistant to the satiety hormone “Leptin”. Leptin is supposed to reduce hunger but over time people can become desensitized to it. Reducing the amount of fat in the body through use of the Zerona laser will reduce the amount of Leptin in the body – allowing the brain to resensitize itself to the Leptin so it will start to work again. Over time reducing the amount of fat in the body may have the benefit of reducing hunger levels so the weight loss is not only immediate but may be continued over time.
Zerona laser liposculpting generally requires 6 visits over a 2 week period. Patients are encouraged to resume normal activities immediately. Patients are often advised to drink plenty of fluid, particularly water to hydrate the body before the procedure which will allow the body to more easily mobilize the fat out of the body.
During the 2 week treatment period, daily water consumption should remain at 8 to 10 glasses per day and to massage the areas being treated to increase fat movement out of the thighs, abdomen and buttocks. Supplementing with B Vitamins may increase the effectiveness of the Zerona liposuction laser therapy.
