Here's what one 26-year-old patients had to say to Harper's Bazaar magazine after her six week Zerona laser treatment at a New York physician's office:
"I was searching for a non-invasive procedure that would help me lose weight and sculpt some problem areas like my thighs and stomach. I wanted something that required no recovery or downtime. My friend went (to the doctor) and ended up with phenomenal results that have lasted for six months. Since we have similar figures, I immediately sought out the doctor for a consultation. I felt nothing, which was the best part! I lay on a table in a dark room as the lasers focused on my stomach and thighs. Each treatment was about 40 minutes.My pants were much looser after the first week. After two weeks of six treatments and now six weeks later, I've lost a total of four inches and around three pounds and went from a size eight to a size six. Would I do it again? If I had the money, yes. The price of course was more than I wanted to spend, but I do not regret a penny. I've maintained a healthy diet so the results have remained consistent since my last visit. I promised myself that this procedure would be my kick-off into an overall lifestyle change that incorporates healthy eating and exercise.
Dan Blustin, 44, the general manager of a LifeTime Fitness gym, can't say enough good things about Zerona:
"It changed my life. There I was, running a gym and 30 pounds overweight. I felt like a hypocrite every day. As a former bodybuilder and MMA fighter, I knew what I had to do to get in shape, but because of my age it just wasn't working like it used to," he says. Anxious to get a little help, he decided to try Zerona, which promises to blast off stubborn fat cells and sculpt a smaller, firmer body. (Hey, we already know lasers can do wonders for your skin.) In addition to the thrice-weekly laser treatments that last about 30 minutes, Dan says he was instructed to eat a low-carb diet, drink lots of extra water, and keep to his regular exercise routine. Initially, he was skeptical. But as he started to see results, he became a believer, he says.
