How does the Zerona laser work?
The Zerona laser works by targeting exercise stubborn fat. It is a non-invasive low-level laser that evenly contours the body without causing an uneven surface. The laser deflates the fat cells while keeping them intact. This works by liquefying the fat, which drains out of the cells, making them collapse to provide the patient with a reduced body volume. It is then eliminated through the normal digestive process.

What areas of the body is the Zerona laser best at treating?
Stubborn belly fat and love handles are the most commonly treated areas. The Zerona laser can eliminate about 40 to 60 grams of hard-to-lose fat in one session. Each gram of fat is 9 calories which provides the patient with at least 360 calories of pure fat.

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.

What are the benefits of the Zerona laser?
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 to 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.
