Zerona Z6 Laser Fat Reduction
Zerona Z6 is a progressive body-slimming system that is designed to remove fat and contour your body without any pain, needles or surgery. As a noninvasive body fat removal treatment, you now have access to an easy and effective method to trim target areas and avoid the potentially dangerous side effects of surgical techniques. The FDA has approved Zerona Z6 laser treatment for the safe and effective non-invasive circumferential reduction of the waist, hips, and thighs. The Zerona laser emits neither hot nor cold – in fact, you can’t even feel it The laser creates a pore in the fat cells; the fat tissue is changed into a liquefied state, allowing the fat to leak out of the cell. The fat is then processed by the body as waste and eliminated permanently through the lymphatic system. Fortunately, the cell is not harmed or destroyed and can still secrete the body’s beneficial hormones.
The Science of Comfortable, Easy Weight Loss
By emulsifying fat cells with safer laser light, Zerona Z6 efficiently eliminates inches from common areas of you body such as your thighs, waist, upper arms and hips. The process works by emptying fat cells of their contents while the essential cell components remain undamaged. This is a achieved by low-level lasers temporarily weakening the fat cell walls.
You will be scheduled for one session per week, for an 8-week period. You can expect 40-minutes to relax, read or do absolutely nothing. The Zerona Z6 treatment is completely painless. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. Each treatment your laser technician will position the laser at the desired target areas, he/she will step out for 20-minutes while the front of your body is treated and then will return to reset for the backside of your body for an additional 20-minutes. Following the laser, you will stand on a vibration plate for 10-minutes. After you are done you can get back to your normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, nor pain, swelling, or any discomfort. This is a symptom-free process except for losing unwanted inches.
Zero Recovery Time
It is nearly impossible to reduce specific areas of fat through just exercise. Zerona Z6 makes it easy to target troubles areas of unwanted fat, and unlike surgery, Zerona also does not require an invasive procedure that may damage surrounding tissues, cause swelling and require significant recovery time. There is no pain involved, so anesthetics are not needed. This treatment also does not require you to wear bandages or other restorative aids since there is no harm done to your skin. Your daily routine can continue uninterrupted right after your session.
Extensive clinical tests and research have been completed that show that Zerona Z6 is a safe treatment that has impressive outcomes. During a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-site clinical trial, clients treated with the Zerona laser lost an average of 3.72 inches from their waists, hips and thighs without any dietary changes, exercise requirements or supplements. For best results, a series of eight Zerona Z6 laser treatments are completed; one 40-minute treatment over the course of 8-weeks, at which time remarkable results are noticeable.
Zerona Z6 FAQ’s
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that the Zerona Z6 low level laser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS AN APPOINTMENT?
It is not recommended that you miss an appointment. Prior to starting the Zerona Z6 treatment, it is important that you are committed to the recommended lifestyle protocol which includes 8 treatments, 1 time a week for 40 minutes. If more than 7 days intervenes, some of the fat may be re-absorbed by the fat cells again.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT THAN LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia. In contrast, the Zerona Z6 treatment is a 100% non-invasive therapy that uses a low level laser applied externally to stimulate the fat cell and emulsify and release fat. There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles, and no downtime.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER NON-INVASIVE BODY SLIMMING TECHNIQUES?
The Zerona Z6 laser is the only completely safe, painless, and effective non-invasive treatment for body slimming on the market today. There is no possibility of injury. No technician will be pushing on you or using any device against your body. You simply lay beneath the Zerona lights.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
Absolutely ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
ARE THERE ANY LIMITATIONS TO WHAT I CAN DO IF I’M USING ZERONA?
No. During the treatment period you can continue your normal activities. It is strongly recommended that you commit to and follow the treatment protocol: stay hydrated (8-10 glasses of water a day), continue to eat healthy and exercise (walk at least 30-minutes a day) and abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat which can decrease your results.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN I USE ZERONA ON?
The Zerona Z6 treatment can be used effectively on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients start with treating the waist, hips, and thighs which can all be targeted in 1 treatment. Other areas include upper arms, bra-line fat, inner knees, back fat, and buttocks.
IS IT COVERED BY INSURANCE?
No, Zerona Z6 treatments are considered elective and are not covered by insurance.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Zerona Z6 low-level laser therapy and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and lipodissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage, which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. None of these have the proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced like the Zerona. The Zerona treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scaring, and zero downtime.
IS IT SAFE IF I HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION SUCH AS DIABETES?
Yes, with two exceptions. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, Zerona should not be used. Additionally, if you have a pacemaker, this treatment may not be for you. There are no known detrimental risks, but potential unknown risks may exist. Zerona Z6 may not be as effective on patients with diabetes, thyroid disorders, and hormone imbalances where the metabolic system is potentially impaired.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE AFFECTS?
No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
HOW LONG HAS THE ZERONA LASER BEEN USED?
The Zerona Z6 has been used in studies since 2008 and has been used by physicians in practice since early 2009. The same Erchonia Low Level Laser Technology has been used to safely assist with tumescent liposuction since 2001 as it is proven to cause fat to be released from fat cells immediately prior to liposuction surgery. Fro this important experience, the Zerona Z6 technique was developed for effective, totally non-invasive body slimming.
IS IT EFFECTIVE?
Yes, the Zerona Z6 treatment and by following the recommended guidelines for success, we saw losses of 3 to 9 inches reported in our clinical trial on the waist, hips, and thighs.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise you can expect long-term results. Zerona Z6 is especially ideal for 2 types of people: those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat or drop body fat % OR those who want to use the Zerona Z6 and the recommended lifestyle protocol to jump start their slimming effort as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle.
CAN I DO THE PROCEDURE MULTIPLE TIMES? AND HOW SOON AFTER MY LAST TREATMENT CAN I DO A SECOND TREATMENT?
Yes, with additional treatments you can expect to see improved results. You can start an additional series of Zerona Z6 treatments immediately following your last treatment.
HOW SOON AFTER PREGNANCY CAN I DO IT?
It is recommended that you wait until after your last postpartum visit with your doctor (usually 6-weeks after birth) to begin your Zerona Z6 treatment. It is not recommended if you are great feeding.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BEGIN SEEING RESULTS?
Some can see results after only a few treatment sessions as their clothes fit more loosely. Many actually see the difference after 4 to 6-sessions. Family and friends often notice the difference, too, within the Zerona Z6 program.
IS EVERYONE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE ZERONA TREATMENT?
Most are good candidates. Even people who are not overweight can lose inches. Be sure to discuss your health background with your physician and ask any questions about your particular areas of concern.
As of June 4th, 2012 the Zerona Laser is FDA approved for the reduction of arm circumference. The study shows patients could lose 1.6 inches off their arms. This loss continued after the second measurement 7.6-months later. To find out more visit www.myzerona.com.
