Zerona Laser Liposuction is offered at clinics in Tulsa, Oklahoma and in other parts of the country to help patients shed unwanted pockets of fat or to accelerate weight loss and assist in one's weight loss goals. Patients are encouraged to speak with a medical professional regarding their candidacy for this procedure and to determine if it is right for them. As this is a non-invasive procedure, most patients with weight loss or body contouring goals are considered candidates for this procedure, although discussing one's candidacy is important.
Laser technology is now widely used in the medical field due to the precision and effectiveness it offers. Zerona is considered a safe procedure when performed correctly and has been effective for many patients with weight loss goals.
Cool laser technology is used in this procedure to help patients lose weight and shed those pockets of isolated fat deposits. Patients who combine Zerona Laser Liposuction with a healthy lifestyle often achieve comparable results to traditional liposuction techniques, although no recovery time is necessary. The procedure works by exposing treatment areas to the laser, which causes the fat to be released into the body, where it is eliminated naturally.
Zerona Laser Liposuction may be used to treat areas in the stomach, love-handles, thighs, buttocks, arms, chin and in other areas. Obese individuals or those unwilling to change their lifestyle habits may not be considered candidates for this procedure. Zerona requires that patients not only undergo the procedure, but maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the fat off. Pregnant women or patients with a pacemaker may not be considered candidates.
There is no pain associated with Zerona and patients are not required to go through an extensive recovery period. Patients may be required to increase their water intake and to adhere to a supplement program to support the lymphatic system. The absence of pain and the lack of a recovery period are two of the main benefits that attract patients to this procedure.
Many individuals see results sooner than a week following treatment, although most do not begin to see results until about a week after the procedure. Zerona eliminates fat within fat cells, but does not eliminate the actual cells. The weight lost resulting from the procedure may, therefore, be regained unless a healthy diet and exercise program is implemented.
Another benefit of this procedure is that no anesthetic is required. No incisions are required and there is no trauma done upon the skin so no risks are associated with the treatment. The treatments are spaced over a period of two weeks during which the patient will be put through six sessions. Each session lasts approximately 40 minutes.
For more information about Zerona and to discuss its price, patients should speak with a medical professional in the Tulsa area. This procedure is considered a cosmetic treatment and therefore is not covered by most insurance carriers. Patients requiring assistance in paying for treatment should speak with a clinic in their area for possible financing options.
