Zerona Treatments Protocol
With a 40-minute NYC Zerona laser fat reduction treatment every other day, for just 2 weeks, patients lost an average of 3.64 inches on their waist, hips and thighs.
To Enhance Results From Manhattan Zerona Laser Fat Reduction
Staying hydrated, avoiding alcohol and exercising lightly is recommended through out the duration of the treatment.
Long Island Zerona works by creating tiny pores in fat cells from which fat is released and carried away by your body’s lymphatic system. Supplementing your diet with niacin helps bolster your lymphatic system and is recommended during laser fat reduction treatment.
When Can I Expect Results From Zerona?
Zerona before and after results can be seen as soon as after the first treatment, and can continue to develop up to a week after the last treatment.
How Does Laser Fat Reduction Work?
Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that the Zerona® low level laser stimulates a fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller, so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this Long Island Zerona process.
What Can I Expect At My Appointments?
You can expect 40 minutes to relax, read or do absolutely nothing. The Zerona® treatment is completely painless. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. Each treatment you will be met by your Manhattan Zerona laser fat reduction physician or technician who will position the laser at the desired areas of the body, he/she will step out for 20 minutes while the front of your body is treated and then will return to reset for the backside of your body for an additional 20 minutes. After you are done you can get back to your normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, nor pain, swelling or any discomfort. Zerona is a symptom-free process except for losing unwanted inches.
What Happens If I Miss An Appointment?
It is not recommended that you miss an appointment. Prior to starting the Zerona® treatment, it is important that you are committed to the recommended lifestyle protocol which includes at least 6 treatments, every other day for 40 minutes and not to exceed 72 hours between treatments. If more than 72 hours intervenes, some of the fat may be reclaimed by the fat cells again.
How Is NYC Zerona Laser Fat Reduction Different Than Liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia.
In contrast, the Zerona® treatment is a 100% non-invasive that uses a low level laser applied externally to stimulate the fat cells to emulsify and release fat. There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles and no downtime involved with laser fat reduction treatments.
How Is It Different From Other Non-Invasive Body Slimming Techniques?
The Zerona® laser is the only completely safe and effective non-invasive treatment for body slimming on the market today. There is no possibility of injury with Long Island Zerona. No technician will be pushing on you or using any device against your body. You simply lay beneath the Zerona® lights.
Is There Any Downtime?
Absolutely ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each laser fat reduction treatment.
Are there any limitations to what I can do if I’m using Zerona®?
No. During the 2 week Manhattan Zerona laser fat reduction treatment period you can continue your normal activities. It is strongly recommended that you commit to and follow the treatment protocol: stay hydrated (8-10 glasses of water a day), continue to eat healthy and exercise (walk at least 30 minutes a day) and abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it which can decrease your results.
What areas of the body can I use Zerona® on?
The Zerona® treatment can be used effectively on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients start with treating the waist, hips and thighs which can all be targeted in 1 Zerona laser fat reduction treatment. Other areas include upper arms, bra-line fat, inner knees, back fat and buttocks.
Is it covered by insurance?
No, Zerona® treatments are considered elective and are not covered by insurance.
Is Zerona safe?
Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Zerona® low-level laser therapy and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and lipodissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage ,which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. None of these have the proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced like the Zerona®. The Zerona® treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scaring and zero downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each Zerona laser fat reduction treatment.
Is it safe if I have a medical condition such as diabetes?
Yes, with two exceptions. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, Zerona® should not be used. Additionally, if you have a pacemaker, this treatment may not be for you. There are no known detrimental risks but potential unknown risks may exist. Zerona® may not be as effective on patients with diabetes or thyroid disorders where the metabolic system is potentially impaired.
Are there any side affects from Zerona Laser Fat Reduction?
No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects from Zerona Laser Fat Reduction beyond loss of inches and fat.
How long has the Zerona® laser been used?
The Zerona® has been used in studies since 2008 and has been used by physicians for laser fat reduction in practice since early 2009. The same Erchonia® Low Level Laser technology has been used to safely assist with tumescent liposuction since 2001 as it is proven to cause fat to be released from fat cells immediately prior to liposuction surgery. From this important experience, the Zerona® technique was developed for effective, totally non-invasive body slimming.
Is it effective?
Yes, with the Zerona® treatment and by following the recommended guidelines for success, we saw an average loss of 3.64 inches reported in our clinical trial on the waist, hips, and thighs.
How long do Zerona results last?
By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise you can expect long-term results from laser fat reduction. Zerona® is especially ideal for 2 types of people: those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat or drop body fat % OR those who want to use the Zerona® and the recommended lifestyle protocol to ‘jump start’ their slimming efforts as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle.
Can I do the procedure multiple times?
And how soon after my last treatment can I do a second treatment?
Yes, with additional treatments you can expect to see improved results from Zerona laser fat reduction. You can start an additional series of Zerona® treatments immediately following your last treatment. Speak to your technician or physician about any discount programs that may apply.
How soon after pregnancy can I do it?
It is recommended that you wait until after your last postpartum visit with your doctor (usually 6 weeks after birth) to begin your Zerona® treatment. Zerona is not recommended if you are breast feeding.
How long does it take to begin seeing results from laser fat reduction treatments?
Some can see results after only a few Zerona laser fat reduction treatment sessions as their clothes fit more loosely. Many actually see the difference after 4-6 sessions. Family and friends often notice the difference, too, within the 2 week Zerona® program.
Is everyone a good candidate for the Zerona® treatment?
Most are good candidates for Zerona laser fat reduction. Even people who are not overweight can lose inches. Be sure to discuss your health background with your physician and ask any questions about your particular areas of concern.
