Zerona NYC

Even with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, many people still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. These often accumulate in the midsection, forming love handles, muffin tops, and belly pooches. Zerona is a non-invasive body sculpting solution that seeks to reduce body fat in targeted areas without surgical incisions.

Zerona is an FDA-cleared laser technology for the removal of body fat. It is cleared for use on the midsection, including the waist and hips, the thighs, and upper arms. Zerona works by utilizing Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to liquefy the fat within the body’s fat cells and allowing the fat to pass through pores in the cells’ walls. Zerona is thus different from the other body contouring solutions, because it does not destroy the body’s fat cells permanently, but merely reduces the amount of fat in each cell. The liquefied fat will then be processed by the body’s natural processes without the need for surgical extraction.

A Zerona procedure will begin with the patient being positioned under the Zerona laser device. The doctor will target the Zerona lasers onto the targeted treatment area, and though patients may see the red laser beams, they do not feel heat or discomfort during the treatment. A single procedure takes approximately 20 minutes to an hour, depending upon the treatment area, and many patients choose to relax, read, or nap during this time.

A Zerona treatment course requires on average at least 6 procedures, with no more than 72 hours between each procedure. A patient must be committed to the time and frequency of a Zerona treatment course for efficacy. Because the fat cells are not permanently destroyed, if too much time is allowed to pass between treatments, the liquefied fat in the bloodstream may be reabsorbed by the fat cells, undoing the body contouring work of the procedure.

On average, patients have reported results of a reduction of up to 3.5 inches combined from their waist, hips, and thighs (not just waist circumference alone). Results may begin to be seen after about the 4th procedure, depending upon each patient’s body’s ability to process the liquefied fat. Because the fat cells are merely reduced, not destroyed, patients may regain their weight and belly fat quickly if they do not adhere to a healthy lifestyle after treatment.

It is important to note that while Zerona may be the right solution for some patients, this is not the preferred technology recommended by our doctor. At our Manhattan office, we offer a wide range of non-invasive and minimally invasive body contouring options like CoolSculpting and Vaser LipoSelection that may be more suitable for your body contouring needs. Please come in for a consultation with our doctor, one of the foremost cosmetic dermatologists in New York, and he will help you determine which procedure will help you attain the best results.
