Zerona Treatments After Pregnancy - What You Need to Know

Zerona is one of the newest body contouring procedures available in the United States and has quickly made its way to hundreds of medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers around the country. If you have been considering liposuction after pregnancy, Zerona could be an attractive alternative to surgery.

This non-invasive procedure can target the hips, thighs, stomach and arms in one step, and all it requires is sitting under a laser device for about 40 minutes. Here’s a close look at how Zerona treatments work, and whether you are a good candidate for the procedure after pregnancy:

How Zerona Works

Several clinical studies support the fact that Zerona helps to emulsify the fat within the cell so that the fat can be absorbed by the lymphatic system. This means that you can lose those stubborn inches of fat around your waistline, hips and thighs just by triggering this fat emulsification process. The Zerona laser works by stimulating the fat cells in the treatment area so that the fat moves outside the cell through a temporary pore.
Each treatment session lasts for 40 minutes, and the laser is simply positioned onto the desired areas of the body. There is now downtime, so you can return to work or other physical activities immediately after the procedure.

Key Benefits of Zerona

Zerona promises several benefits for individuals that want to change the way their body looks without going under the knife. Some of the key benefits of Zerona include:
  • No downtime
  • Painless procedure
  • No swelling or discomfort
  • Does not require the use of drugs or medications
  • Is performed without anesthesia
  • No incisions
  • Can target all major body parts

Is Zerona Safe After Pregnancy?

Zerona is safe for most people after pregnancy, but if you think you may become pregnant in the near future, Zerona may pose some health risks. In most cases, women who have recently given birth will need to wait about six weeks before beginning the Zerona treatment plan. Most people need to undergo a series of 8 to 10 treatments in order to achieve desired results. These treatments are spaced out over a two to three week period, and the patient must complete each visit in order to trigger the fat loss cycle.

Other Body Contouring Options After Pregnancy

In addition to Zerona laser treatments, women in the postpartum phases can explore several other non-invasive body contouring procedures. Some help to tighten and tone the skin, while others are designed to target cellulite. Other body contouring treatment options after pregnancy include:
  • VelaShape to smooth out loose skin and create a streamlined silhouette
  • Thermage skin tightening treatments to tighten up loose or sagging skin
  • Titan skin tightening treatments to correct sagging skin
  • VelaSmooth to reduce the appearance of cellulite
  • Endermologie to sculpt and tone the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite
