Zerona laser represents a new FDA-approved, pain-free, non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction. Used to contour the body shape, the Zerona requires no physical insertion, rather it relies on a high fluence, low level therapy designed to perforate the membrane of fat cells. This results in the release of triglyceride from the cells, which is ultimately removed by the bodies own lymphatic elimination systems.
Zerona laser is best for areas such as:
- Bra-line fat
- Inner knees
What is treatment like?
The Zerona laser experience is simple. Patients lie on their front side for approximately 20 minutes, and their back for 20 minutes. During this time, an array of lasers focus painless energy on the target areas simultaneously. This relaxing experience means patients can sleep, read, or simply enjoy the solitude. There is no pain, heat, or swelling involved.
There is no downtime post-procedure, and patients are free to resume normal activity such as work, exercising, etc. However, it is recommended that patients stay hydrated, maintain a healthy diet, and abstain from excessive alcohol and caffeine, as these substances can impede the lymphatic metabolizing process and decrease results.
*Results may vary.
How many sessions will I need?
The Zerona laser typically requires around six to ten sessions for optimal results. These sessions are ideally spaced every other day, with no more than 72 hours elapsing between treatments to prevent reuptake by fat cells. Therefore, prior to beginning a treatment plan, patients should be committed to the schedule.

What is the difference between liposuction and Zerona laser?
Zerona laser does not require the insertion of cannulas to physically remove fat with suction. Instead, it emulsifies subcutaneous fat using “cold” lasers, and therefore is a non-invasive alternative requiring no compression garments, bandages, sutures, or anesthesia. Eliminating the need for a surgical procedure also eliminates the bleeding, bruising, soreness, and down-time of traditional liposuction. Consulting with Dr. Rokhsar can help you make the body-contouring treatment plan that is best for your specific needs.
Am I a good candidate?
Due to its gentle and non-invasive nature, almost everyone is eligible for Zerona laser. However, those who are pregnant should not participate, as well as patients with pacemaker devices, diabetes, or certain thyroid disorders.
How effective is Zerona laser?
Clinical trials prove that Zerona laser, when used in the correct treatment regiment, helps patients lose an average of 3.64 inches in the waist, hips, and thighs. Patients can expect to see a difference in 4-6 sessions, and often lose a clothing size during the process. The results are long-term, when combined with a healthy diet and exercise plan.
