About Zerona low energy laser therapy.
Zerona treatments involve the application of a patented 635 nm low energy laser, which has been shown through extensive research to cause the fat within the adipocyte (fat cell) to leave the cell and accumulate in the interstitial space around the cells. The Zerona laser used for this treatment has no thermal effect on tissue. Instead, the non-invasive laser helps the body absorb fat by creating a micro pore in the fat cell wall allowing the “fat” components to seep into the interstitial space. This excess fat is then removed naturally by the body’s lymphatic system and subsequently excreted without the negative side effects and downtime associated with more invasive procedures such as liposuction.
How do I know if I am a candidate for Zerona treatments?
Initially, you will consult with a specialist to determine if you are a candidate for low energy laser therapy. During this time period you will have the opportunity to ask questions you may have concerning this treatment. If it is determined that you are a candidate for this procedure, there will be a few preliminary steps consisting of: paperwork, measurements, and photos.
Is Zerona as effective as traditional liposuction?
Zerona treatments are not intended to replace more invasive procedures such as liposuction; but as an alternative, more conservative procedure. While many patients do experience liposuction results, not everyone will. Patients with small, localized areas of fat that are non-responsive to diet and exercise may benefit from treatments other than Zerona which have been shown to permanently remove/destroy the unwanted fat.
Is there anything else I should do after each treatment?
It is recommended that patients undergoing Zerona treatments should drink pleanty of water to remain well hydrated and, in addition, take the following supplements: Lysine, Omega 3 Fatty Acids (EPA/DHA), L-Carnitine, EGCG (Green Tea Catechin), Beta-glucan, Niacin and Lecithin. The use of Niacin is especially important because niacin is used to assist your body in removing the fat from your blood stream. Niacin also helps to reduce LDL-cholesterol, reduce triglycerides, and increase HDL-cholesterol.
