How Does Zerona Laser Liposuction Work?

Unwanted pockets of body fat that do not respond to diet and exercise may be troubling for individuals in the Santa Ana, California area as well as in other parts of the country. Patients may feel embarrassed or self-conscious of these pockets of body fat, but fortunately help is available in the form of minimally-invasive procedures such as Zerona Laser Liposuction. This is a new procedure that utilizes cool-laser technology to eliminate fatty tissue deposits in the body in a non-invasive manner. This may be used as an alternative to liposuction in some cases.

The procedure works by exposing the areas being treated to the laser used with Zerona to encourage fat cells to relase fat into the body. Here it is absorbed and eliminated naturally and results in loss of weight and the loss of inches from the abdomen and leg areas of the body. The procedure may be used to help improve the appearance of the stomach, love handles, thighs, buttocks, arms, chin and other areas of the body. Before receiving treatment with Zerona, it is important that patients speak with a trained medical professional in the Santa Ana area to determine if they are a good candidate.

Candidates for this procedure include those with an established healthy lifestyle looking to lose a few pounds that are separating them from reach their goals, as well as those wishing to speed up their weight loss goals and healthy living goals. It is very important that patients ensure they are good candidates before receiving treatment. Those not considered candidates may include those who are obese or who are looking for a quick way to lose weight without making lifestyle changes. Zerona empties fat cells rather than removing them, so it is possible that these cells will fill up again if the patient does not assume a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Those who are pregnant or who wear a pacemaker may not be candidates.

Patients will undergo a series of six treatment sessions lasting about 40 minutes each. They will be spread out over a two-week period. A low-level or cold laser is applied to the area being treated, but nothing will touch the skin. There is no pain associated with the treatment and patients are typically comfortable throughout the procedure. The laser liquefies the fat within the fat cells, releasing it through tiny, temporary pores created by the laser in the cell membrane. The lymphatic system will absorb, process and eliminate the liquid fat with other bodily fluids. This leaves the fat cells undamaged, but emptied of fat for a loss of inches from the body.

No recovery time is associated with Zerona, as it is non-invasive and does not require healing after the procedure. During and after the treatment process, patients may be encouraged to increase water intake and maintain a supplement regimen to support the lymphatic system. It is important that patients following the recovery process laid out for them by a medical professional in Santa Ana to help ensure that they receive the best results possible.

There are virtually no risks that patients should be aware of with Zerona, as this procedure does not require anesthetic, incisions or dermal trauma. Those who are pregnant or who wear a pacemaker should not undergo this procedure.
