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 can I expect at my appointments?
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. You will be met by your physician or technician at each treatment who will position the laser at the desired areas of the body, 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.
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 at least 6-8 treatments, 1 to 2 times/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 100% non-invasive 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.
