Zerona Procedure Guide

ZERONA®  is a safe, new body slimming, low-level laser proven to remove fat and reduce inches without invasive surgery. There are no needles, no incisions, and no recovery time needed. ZERONA works by emulsifying fat which is then released into the empty space around the fat cells. The excess fat is then passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification.

Dr. Paul Thaxton, medical director of Advanced Medical Weight Loss Augusta in Evans, has been approved as the only doctor in this area of Georgia to use this state-of-the-art laser treatment.

Your Treatments, Step-by-Step

ZERONA is six treatment sessions, administered over two-weeks. For added results, discuss additional ZERONA treatments with your physician.

The low-level, cool touch laser does not produce heat, it is completely non-invasive, and has never shown any recorded side effects. During the procedure, patients generally feel nothing.

  • Before your first treatment and after your last, your measurements will be taken and recorded. You can write your measurements in your ZERONA Patient Folder to easily track your success.
  • Remove your clothes, leaving your undergarments or bathing suit on, and lay down on the table wearing the safety goggles. The technician will direct the ZERONA lasers at the target areas.
  • Each treatment is 40 minutes – 20 minutes laying on your back; and 20 minutes on your front.
  • For best results, it’s critical to schedule your appointments every other day (three treatments a week) for two weeks.

Achieve Your Maximum Success

By following these steps everyday, you will achieve the maximum results from ZERONA:

Take CURVA™ supplements – Begin one week before your treatments, and continue for one weekafter. CURVA is a proprietary blend of Niacin, L-Carnitine, Gingko Biloba and Green Tea extract, scientifically designed to aid in the detoxification process. Niacin may make you feel flushed or warm

Hydrate – Drink eight 8 oz. glasses of water each day (2 liters).

Walk – Maintain your regular workout routine. If you do not work out, walk at least 10 minutes each day. If you don’t work out, wear a compression garment such as Spanx or Under Armour.

Watch your diet – Eliminate alcohol completely, and reduce fat intake. This allows your kidneys, liver and lymphatic systems to quickly purge the excess fat.

Keep your appointments – Keep to your scheduled treatments, with no more than three days between appointments. The fat tissue responds more quickly when treated every 48 hours.

What You Can Expect

In clinical trials, patients lost an average of 3.64 inches after two weeks; with some patients losing as much as 9 inches. Many patients do not see noticeable results until after the last session. Don't get discouraged and stay with the protocol. As with any procedure, results will vary and may be more dramatic from one patient to the next.
