About Zerona

The Zerona laser works by emitting cold laser energy into the body tissues; this energy is absorbed by the body fat, and the fat is broken down and then channeled out of the body. The laser virtually stimulates the breakdown and removal of body fat, without affecting the surrounding skin and tissues.

Zerona™, unlike other procedures, allows you to continue your daily activities without interruptions from surgery, pain, wounds or garments.

Results of a pilot study were presented to the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery in 2008, and the procedure has received FDA clearance to be used in the United States.

The Zerons® procedure was proven through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site, and placebo-controlled study in which patients, on average, lost 3.64 inches from their waists, hips and thighs. This result is dramatic compared to the placebo group, which only lost an average of half an inch.

Other key benefits of the Zerona laser include:

  • No downtime
  • No incisions or marks from the treatment
  • No need to wear compression garments
  • Ongoing fat loss days and weeks after treatment
  • No reported side effects
  • Uses the Erchnoia laser, which received FDA market clearance for liposuction in 2004, and for acne in 2005

The Zerona laser treatment has been featured in the national news media including Harper's Bazaar magazine, Allure magazine, the Early Show on CBS, ABC's Nightline, The Doctor's show, the nationally-syndicated Rachel Ray talk show and on the news program Extra. It has also been featured on many local news programs, including Channel 5 in Atlanta.
