Many men and women struggling with losing a few pounds and inches undergo extensive liposuction procedures that remove fat cells permanently, and in some cases, sculpt and tone up the tissues to create a contoured, sleek appearance.
While liposuction can be an effective way to achieve the ideal figure, there are some alternatives to going under the knife. Zerona is an innovative laser lipo treatment that promises to help you lose excess pounds and inches without surgery or any incisions.
This body sculpting procedure is designed to remove fat and shape the body without invasive surgery, and allows the patient to resume daily activities immediately after treatment. Zerona produces a low-level, cold laser that does not heat up the body’s tissues in any way. The non-invasive laser penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the fat cells instead, stimulating the metabolism and causing the fat cells to be removed by the body naturally. The Zerona procedure has been proven successful through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site and placebo-controlled study where patients lost as much as 9 inches overall.
Zerona treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and are currently available at many medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers around the United States. Zerona costs anywhere from $2,500 to $4,000+ for a series of treatments, depending on how much fat needs to be removed, and the location of the medical spa or cosmetic surgery center. Most patients need to undergo at least six to eight treatments in order to see significant results.
Zerona is designed to complement a weight loss program and exercise regimen, and is not a “quick fix” solution for anyone who wants to lose weight. Patients are advised to eat a well-balanced diet, maintain a consistent exercise schedule and undergo treatments at least two times per week in order to achieve desired results.
