Is Zerona Effective?

You may have heard about Zerona laser fat removal on daily talk shows. It’s getting a lot of attention because it’s completely noninvasive, unlike liposuction.

But is Zerona effective? Is it safe? How does it work? There are so many questions when you have new technology, especially when it seems like it sounds too good to be true. It seems like every day some sort of miracle fat loss system comes onto the market only to disappear because it just doesn’t work. That is not the story for Zerona. It is here to make an impact and will only continue to get better and work more efficiently. That is the beauty of science.

Let’s start at the beginning.

Is Zerona effective?

Zerona has been scientifically proven as effective, but it does take some dedication from you.

Over the years, the idea of non-invasive body contouring has steadily grown in popularity and has quickly become one of the fastest-expanding areas of esthetic medicine. Patients prefer non-surgical treatments due to their fewer side effects and shorter recovery times. Since its inception, there have been many independent, nonbiased studies undertaken to determine the efficacy of Zerona to emulsify the fat contained within our cells and then evacuate that fat.

One such study tested Zerona in a double-blind, randomized, multi-site, and placebo-controlled environment. After a full procedure, patients lost an average of 3.64 inches from their waist, hips, and thighs. This result is dramatic compared to the placebo group, which only lost an average of half an inch.

You can read each of these studies in depth here, but in the end, science is on the side of laser fat removal. Nearly every study corroborates with one another and determines that, with the proper adhesion to the appointment schedule, hydration, and a healthy diet Zerona is effective. 

It's incredibly important to note that "patient adhesion" and commitment to the procedure is absolutely vital to its success. You need to be able to adhere to the rigorous appointment schedule to make sure your body takes to the treatment properly and you also need to be sure to stay hydrated before, during, and after the treatment while avoiding alcohol and caffeine.

Is Zerona safe?

In short, the answer is yes. Zerona produces low-level, or cold, output energy that does not thermally damage the areas treated, making the therapy completely safe and doesn't require downtime for recovery. Additionally, Zerona is one of the few noninvasive weight loss treatments that has been FDA approved for both safety and efficacy in achieving superficial fat dissolving.  

Patients have referred to the treatments as quick, absolutely painless, relaxing and, even Zen like. You simply lay on your back underneath the laser for 20 minutes, then flip over and lay on your front for 20 minutes to ensure that both sides of your body can be treated equally and ensuring positive results everywhere. That's it!

You can bring a book, catch up on your favorite games, call your friends, or just relax and let the lasers run their course. The developing medical team made sure to make the process as comfortable as possible and therefore making it far less intimidating to the consumer and therefore more obtainable. Invasive surgery is scary and can have severe side effects if performed improperly, laying down and reading a book is not.

Why is Zerona effective?

Zerona is effective because it delivers five rotating, coherent, cold laser beams that fully penetrate through superficial layers of fat that then starts a photochemical reaction. This reaction liquefies the fat cells which then get pushed out through a small pore and into the space between cells known as the interstitial space. Once there, the body will naturally collect the fat with the assistance of the lymphatic system, which distributes it into the bloodstream and takes it to the liver for elimination.

There have been concerns that when the liquified fat gets carried away through the lymphatic system it is simply being redistributing it throughout the body and not actually being removed. However, there have been multiple retrospective studies done on the test patients to address these concerns. Those evaluations found that the treatment did not just redistribute the fluid into different parts, but was successful at eliminating it and even helped start a fat reducing effect throughout the entire body.

So, is Zerona effective? Yes. Is Zerona safe? Yes. Zerona is revolutionizing the body contouring field and will continue to get even better. Many studies and clinical evaluations back up the conclusions supporting Zerona. This treatment is revolutionizing fat loss treatments and it makes it easier for everyone to obtain their goals.
