Zerona™ Body Contouring Laser
For those who carry stubborn excess body fat, it can be a frustrating and difficult battle to regain a slender figure once again. As anyone unhappy with their weight knows, having unwanted fat is not very healthy for self esteem or the body itself. In the past, there were few options for those looking to lose fat, except for diet and exercise. As liposuction appeared and became more popular, some were still not willing to undergo a potentially painful and stressful procedure in order to lose a few extra pounds. Today, with advances in laser technology, Paul Nassif M.D., F.A.C.S., and Aubrie Cook, Clinical Esthetician, perform Zerona™ Body Contouring Laser treatments, which can take inches of fat off your body with no surgery whatsoever!
Zerona™ Laser treatments not only remove fat from problem areas, they shape the contours of the body into a sleeker, firmer look. Erchonia® LipoLASER™ is used to break down adipose tissue (fatty tissue), which is then naturally discharged from the body via normal detoxification. Ideal candidates for Zerona™ Body Contouring Laser treatments are people who wish to reduce excess body weight, and are committed to this goal. A consultation with Dr. Nassif or Aubrie Cook at Spalding Cosmetic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California will help to determine what course of treatment is best for you by examining your goals and individual needs.
Because Zerona™ Laser treatments are non-invasive, the procedure only takes forty minutes to an hour. First, one side of the area to be treated is exposed to the laser for twenty minutes, then the other side is exposed for the same length of time. The procedure leaves no scars, which often come with the territory of liposuction and tummy tucks. Additionally, most patients experience no pain during the procedure, despite the fact that no anesthesia is used. Because the low level laser is so gentle and does not produce heat, there have been no reported side effects, and most patients cannot feel the treatment. Low level lasers have been utilized for over forty years to treat orthopedic problems and pain, and the Erchonia® LipoLASER™ used in Zerona™ treatments is FDA approved.
In order for Zerona™ Laser treatments to be most effective, a minimum of three treatments a week for two weeks is necessary. Depending on the patient’s needs, more treatments may be recommended. Results vary, however the average number of inches lost after two weeks of treatment is 3.5”, though some have lost as much as 9”. Since none of the fat removed in the process is water weight, the inches lost represent actual fat lost.
Unlike surgical alternatives for fat loss, there is no recovery period following Zerona™ treatments. There are no stitches to be removed and no painkillers to take. In addition, exercise does not have to be suspended and is, in fact, encouraged in conjunction with the treatment. Patients may return to their regular activities right away.
Removal of stubborn fat no longer has to be painful and invasive. Call today at (310) 275-2467 to schedule a consultation for Zerona™ Laser treatments with Aubrie Cook at Spalding Drive Cosmetic Surgery.
