Erchonia’s Zerona Z6 is a full body fat loss treatment that allows clients to target areas of stubborn fat, and is the first laser specifically designed for body contouring. The technology is FDA Market-Cleared, non-invasive and clinically tested.
Applied externally, the laser targets excess fat by emulsifying fatty tissue through the use of cold laser technology developed by Erchonia. It provides an alternative fat loss treatment without the adverse side effects associated with surgical and other weight loss procedures like liposuction and body wraps.
How Zerona Works
The technology employed by the Zerona Z6 laser was initially developed as an adjunct to liposuction procedures to help speed up the recovery process. However, it was found that these cold laser treatments could be used as a stand-alone procedure that promoted the liberation of stored intracellular fat.
Zerona utilizes cold laser treatment, also called low-level laser technology (LLLT). This “cold” laser technique uses low levels of light that are not enough to heat your body’s tissue.
When it’s used cosmetically to target fat cells, the Zerona procedure creates an overall body slimming effect that can be used to reduce fat in your: Waist, Chest, Pecs, Back, Neck, Arms, Thighs, Hips, Ankles, and more!
The Zerona Z6 laser uses low-level laser stimulation to disrupt the membrane of fat cells. This disruption induces the formation of a transitory pore that causes the fatty material of the cell to seep out and move into the interstitial space regulated by the lymphatic system. The result is that fat cells within adipose tissue are shrunk instead of being killed, which can be harmful to the integrity of bodily tissue.
Zerona Non-Invasive Fat Loss Procedure
Zerona Z6 is a low-level laser used to target problematic areas of stored fat. Most clients who undergo the Zerona process focus on their waist, thighs and hips, but it can also be used on various other problem areas such as the arms, neck, ankles, chest and back due to it’s clearance to treat the overall body.
The procedure is straightforward and causes no side effects. Your Zerona provider will have you lie on a comfortable table on your back. Six lasers will be applied to target areas of fat simultaneously for approximately 20 minutes. You’ll then lie on your front, where the process will be repeated. By undergoing this 40-minute procedure as few as 6 times, you can see quality results in fat loss.
BENEFITS OF THE ZERONA FAT LOSS PROCEDURE VS. WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY AND LOWER QUALITY SCULPTING PROCEDURES
If you hope to lose weight or stubborn areas of fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of, you may have considered traditional weight loss surgery. However, surgery is not without its risks, including unsightly scars and lengthy recovery periods. Plus, some people don’t qualify for traditional weight loss surgery.
Zerona laser treatment doesn’t come with the risks or side effects of other methods. In fact, you can enjoy many benefits with this FDA Market-Cleared, industry-leading procedure, such as the fact that it’s:
- Completely non-invasive
- Completed in a relaxing treatment atmosphere
- Able to provide effective results
- Scarless & Bruiseless
- Causes no side effects
You’ll remain awake throughout this entire non-surgical treatment, and afterward, you can continue your day without any downtime for healing.
Laser treatment may sound intimidating. However, Zerona-Z6 laser technology is able to target fat cells externally, no intrusive surgery required. Once treatment is complete, you’ll see no signs that you even underwent Zerona treatment apart from the missing inches from your waistline and a massive boost of confidence about how you look.
The Science Behind Zerona’s Cold Laser Technology
Most fat loss lasers rely on freezing or burning fat cells, causing them to die. However, Zerona uses low-level laser treatment technology that emulsifies, or liquefies, fat. Four separate studies were performed to confirm the efficacy of this technique. These treatments do not harm fat cells like other treatments typically do, which is healthier for your body.
With both scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), the adipose, or fatty tissue was analyzed during the Zerona procedure. These devices acquired images that revealed how adipose arrangements collapsed after laser treatment.
Enlarged subcutaneous fat regions cause problematic sections of body fat, which are created by large fat cells, or adipocytes. Zerona’s laser technology induces these cells to form a transitory pore in their membrane. Through this pore, fatty material seeps out into extracellular space, which is regulated by the lymphatic system. As fatty material is evacuated, fat cells shrink, allowing fat loss from the treated area. Check out our page about the science to learn more about this process.
