What is Zerona?

Zerona® is a fat-eliminating treatment using cold (low-level) laser technology to make you look slimmer. The treatment doesn’t involve incisions or injections of any kind and is completely safe. 

The laser energy targets your fat cells in the treatment areas you specify. The low-level energy isn’t warm enough to heat your body tissues, so the treatment is very comfortable.

The laser energy disrupts the membranes around your fat cells. The fatty material then leaks out of the membranes, and your body clears it out of the spaces between your cells naturally. 

In this way, Zerona shrinks your fat cells without killing them. Your shrunken fat cells can still serve their purposes of regulating metabolism and supporting your immune system. 

Once your Zerona treatment is complete, your treatment areas look slimmer and more toned. You might even see more muscle definition. 

The team at 43rd St. Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation helps you define specific goals and tells you how many treatments it will take to reach them. 

Which areas can I treat with Zerona?

Zerona works to treat many different areas. You can get Zerona on a single problem area or several parts of your body for an overall slimming effect. People commonly use Zerona to target and slim:

  • Neck
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Ankles

Research states patients lost an average of 3.72 inches from areas like their waist, hips, and thighs with Zerona. You can get the treatment regardless of your body type and your age. 

What should I expect during a Zerona treatment?

Zerona treatments are painless, so you don’t need anesthesia. You can expect your treatment to take about 40 minutes. 

During this time, you can relax, read, or even doze off. You won’t feel any uncomfortable sensations like heat, tugging, or pain. You might need as few as six sessions to reach your fat loss goals.

After your Zerona treatment, there is no downtime required. There are also no side effects from the treatment, so you won’t have to deal with pain, swelling, or discomfort in the hours or days following each treatment. You can go back to work right away, even the very same day. 

Am I a good candidate for Zerona?

In order to be a good candidate for Zerona, you should have a relatively positive body image and have a few specific changes in mind you’d like to make. 

The team also encourages you to start living a healthy lifestyle before your treatments and continue your healthy habits after you finish Zerona treatments. You should be able to commit to six treatment sessions with no more than 72 hours between each of them.
