Zerona FAQs

How does Zerona work?

Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that the Zerona 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?

During your 40-minute appointment, you can expect to relax, read, or do absolutely nothing. The Zerona treatment is completely painless. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. After you are through, you can resume your daily activities immediately without downtime, pain, swelling or any discomfort.
What happens if I miss an appointment?

We do not recommend missing an appointment. Prior to starting the Zerona treatment program, you should expect to commit to the recommended lifestyle protocol which includes at least 6 treatments to be administered every other day for two weeks. Each treatment will last for 40 minutes. You should not exceed 72 hours between treatments for optimal results.

How is Zerona 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. Lipposuction generally requires some form of anesthesia sedation. Zerona is a 100% non-invasive procedure 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.

On what areas of the body can I use Zerona?

Zerona can be used on essentially every part of the body where you find localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients start by targeting the waist, hips and thighs in the first treatment. Other areas many people consider include the upper arms, bra-line fat, inner knees, back fat and buttocks.

Will my insurance cover Zerona?

No, Zerona treatments are considered elective and are not covered by insurance.

Is Zerona safe?

Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Zerona 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. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.

How do I know if I am a candidate for Zerona?

A member of the Complete Clinics medical team will conduct a detailed health evaluation to determine if the Zerona procedure is right for you. We find that most people are good candidates and even people who are not extremely overweight can lose inches with Zerona. Patients who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant should not use Zerona. Additionally, if you have a pacemaker, this treatment is not recommended. Zerona may not be as effective on patients with diabetes or thyroid disorders where the metabolic system is potentially impaired.

How quickly will I see results and how long do results last?

Some patients see results after only a few treatments, most noticeable as their clothes fit more loosely. Within 4-6 sessions, most patients see a significant difference. You can expect long-term results from Zerona by maintaining a healthy dietary program and exercise regime. Zerona is especially ideal for two types of people: (i) those that are already following a healthy lifestyle but want to remove localized pockets of fat or drop body fat percentages and (ii) those who wish to use the Zerona and the recommended lifestyle protocol to “jump start” their slimming efforts as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle.
