The science behind ZERONA®
The remarkable images below show the low-level laser’s ability to emulsify adipose tissue. The pictures highlight the collapse of the rigid adipose cell, and secretion of triglycerides and fatty acid from the cell.
Filled Adipose Cell
The most researched medical procedure on the market.
The low-level laser technology utilized by ZERONA® has been researched by Erchonia and published in numerous peer reviewed journals for cosmetic and health benefits. ZERONA® is the only device that contours the waist, hips and thighs simultaneously with no side effects, pain, bruising or surgery and you see results in weeks not months. Physicians using Zerona have treated more than 40,000 patients, with an average reduction of 4.1 inches in just two weeks.
An outcome only achieved by ZERONA®
ZERONA® forms a transitory pore within the protective membrane of adipocytes. Stored lipids and fatty material traverse the membrane via the transitory pore entering the interstitial space where the lymphatic system is readily capable of removing the fatty debris. The formation of the transitory pore enables ZERONA®to bypass a key fat catabolism step by photochemically liberating the fatty material.

Who should undergo Zerona treatment?
The beauty of Zerona is that, as a non-invasive low-level laser treatment, many types of people may undergo the procedure. Those with excessive amounts of weight to lose may not be ideal patients, but patients near their goal weight are.
How is the Zerona treatment conducted?
The Zerona treatment takes about 40 minutes to complete per session. When you are lying under the laser, it targets the fat cells, causing them to liquefy. This, in turn, causes your body to reabsorb the fat and flush it out of the body.
Is treatment with the Zerona laser painful?
No. Though the word laser may imply a strong heat, Zerona's low-level laser is actually a cooling laser. You will not require an anesthetic for the treatment and there is no recovery time following Zerona.
How many sessions will I need?
Zerona patients undergo a series of treatments to target their fat cells. Most often, patients undergo six 40-minute sessions during a two week period.
When will I experience the results of my Zerona treatment?
Most patients begin to see the results of the Zerona laser one week after the treatment. As long as a healthy diet and exercise are maintained, the results can be long-lasting.
