How to Prepare Zerona Body Contouring Treatments

Saturday, October 15th, 2022

The three ways of fat reduction are weight loss, either by dietary changes or gastrointestinal surgery, liposuction, or externally applied non-invasive means. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Liposuction is best for localized areas of fat. Weight loss is needed when there is generalized excess fat. The non-invasive machines are best where there is not a lot of excess fat but it is more generalized. Non-invasive treatments for helping to reduce stubborn body fat is safe and effective and can aid in contouring your body to help meet your aesthetic goals.

Dr. Buchanan at the Center for Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that is proven effective at eliminating stubborn body fat with no downtime or recovery period.

Zerona Non-Invasive Body Slimming uses cold laser technology to penetrate below the skin and painlessly attack fat cells. Where liposuction uses a small suction device to physically remove fat cells, the cold laser of Zerona creates small holes in the walls of the fat cells, causing them to leak and shrink. The leaked fat is eliminated like other cellular waste.

During each treatment session, you will be on your back for 20 minutes, then on your stomach for another 20. The best results generally occur after 6 treatments scheduled over 2 weeks. Each treatment is painless and you can return to your daily life immediately.

Despite the ease and effectiveness of Zenora treatments, there are a few things that you can do to prepare and have the best experience. It is important to have realistic expectations about the results, especially compared to those of liposuction. Zenora is slower than liposuction but generally produces results that you will be able to see.

However, since the fat cells, while much smaller in size, remain inside your body, there is a chance they will fill up again. This does not usually occur as your brain naturally sees you as smaller and usually makes changes to your eating habits without you being aware.

The best way to see the best and longest-lasting results are to get started on a healthy diet and lifestyle well before the treatment sessions. These habits will carry over after the treatments and keep the fat from returning.
