Let’s face it. Most of us wouldn’t mind losing a few inches around the waist. But the sheer effort needed to get that perfect body puts off a lot of us. We’re busy with our professional and social lives and juggling a hundred other things. It’d be great to burn excess fat with just diet and an active lifestyle, but often the slow progress is just too discouraging to keep up motivation levels. Or sometimes things get in the way and we can’t continue the regimen.
With Zerona®, you don’t have any more excuses. It’s time to show-off your shapely curves and strut away in the LA summer! Blue Medi Spa offers Zerona® fat-reduction laser treatments in one of the most advanced and well-equipped facilities in Los Angeles so you can slim down and turn heads, whether at the beach or the high streets.
Zerona® is a modern marvel in body contouring technology. Using cold laser to pinpoint and annihilate fat, it sheds inches from where it matters and gives you a more toned and defined shape, all while you’re lying down in a comfy bed. Our Zerona® fat-reduction treatments are administered by trained specialists in a modern facility that complies with all safety standards.
From celebrities like Dr. Oz to the hit television show “The Doctors,” Zerona® has been hailed as one of the most effective treatments in fat-reduction by body contouring experts far and wide. If you’re short on time and just about given up trying to zap the fat away, Zerona® is the first non-invasive, non-surgical laser treatment that busts fat from even the most stubborn areas, giving you the curves you’ve always wanted—and all in the right places.
Zerona® is an FDA-approved treatment and an excellent alternative to traditional procedures such as liposuction. If you’re not too keen on surgical methods to get rid of excess fat, it’s the perfect way to a great body. Zerona® speeds up your weight-loss goals and complements diet and exercise regimens, or acts as a speedy, standalone solution to remove excess fat, without diet, exercise or other weight-loss solutions.
The Zerona program uses a low level or cold laser that produces no heat on the body tissue. It’s a painless, non-invasive alternative to liposuction and other painful procedures that carry a serious risk of complications. The excess fat naturally leaves the body through normal pathways without any downtime. The patient will be evaluated and given specific nutrition and guidelines for optimal results.
How does the laser work?
Zerona’s low level laser therapy, causes the fat contained in the fat cell to liquefy. The laser causes the fat cell membrane to become temporarily porous, allowing the liquefied fat to leave the cell and accumulate in the interstitial space around the cells (your lymphatic system). There is no damage to the cell membrane and after 48 hours the pores close up. Once the fat is in the interstitial space, the body via the lymphatic system naturally removes it. Of course this is where the system shines with nutritional support (ask during your consult for recommended eating plan), percussive lymphatic massage, re-hydration therapy, and more.
How much can I expect to lose?
Everyone is different and so results will vary. The success of the treatments depends on your body’s ability to detoxify emulsified cellular debris. Therefore, not all patients will obtain the same outcome at the end of the therapy. In double-blind, randomized, multi-site, placebo-controlled clinical trials that tracked the circumferences of patient’s waist, hips, and thighs, the average total loss was 3.64 inches, up to a maximum of 9.5 inches, compared to a placebo group that only lost a half inch.
Who can receive treatment?
You may not be a good candidate for the treatments simply because you want to lose weight. During our specialist’s thorough examination, it will be determined if you’re a good candidate for the program and if weight/inch loss will improve your overall health. If you’re a candidate for the program, the specialist will determine a treatment and nutritional protocol that is best for your body. There are few patient contraindications, specifically, active cancer and/or illness that can be spread through your system.
Are there any risks?
There are no known risks associated with low-level laser therapy. This treatment causes no discomfort before, during or after the treatment.
Is the procedure painful?
Treatment is painless and requires no surgery, no anesthesia, no needles, no recovery, no healing, and no downtime.
What will the treatment be?
Typically, you will receive six, 40-minute laser treatments during a consecutive two-week period. Additionally, you will receive nutritional support and other take home instructions for optimal results. Programs vary depending on the patient’s needs and goals. Often a patient will be so thrilled with the results that they will want another series of treatments.
Will this program get rid of cellulite?
This reduces contours due to excess fat, not cellulite. We may recommend additional treatments such as Endermologie or deep tissue massage to help breakdown the fibrous adhesions common to creating cellulite.
Will the fat deposit “elsewhere?”
Fat removed by the laser is metabolized and removed by the body. There is no evidence that this fat deposits elsewhere.
Can I just use the laser instead of dieting?
The procedure is not a program for losing weight or a cure for obesity. Zerona is a fantastic way to get rid of inches in specific problem areas – stomach, thighs, buttock, arms and even the under chin. This is not the best way to lose weight all over the body. It is a great way to ‘kick-start’ lifetime changes toward better health, including good nutrition and proper exercise. Our specialists will help you with this including individualizing a nutritional supplement protocol to help get you to optimum health.
Can the fat return?
This is a very common question and a very simple answer. The Zerona laser itself does not obliterate or remove the fat cells from the body. When the fat leaves the cells, the cells remain intact and collapse to their ‘unloaded’ size. This is that same thing that occurs when you are exercising (burning calories) and watching what you eat (controlling calories you eat). If poor diet and lifestyle habits continue and greater calories are consumed than expended from exercise, the body will store the excess calories and the fat cells may begin to retain fat again. So the short answer is “yes” fat can return, if you are consuming more calories than you burn.
How many treatments can I do?
This should be discussed with your Zerona specialist. Many patients return for second, third, fourth, and more series of treatments to focus on different areas or loose even more inches. There have been no contraindications or side effects found from continued treatments.
Why do some people lose more inches than others?
The physiological ability to process fat has genetic variability from person to person. Variations included function of the lymph and digestive system as well as possible metabolic abnormalities. Your specialist will work with your individual needs to help achieve optimum performance within the parameters of your given physiological makeup.
When can I expect to see results?
Typical results in decrease of body circumference are seen about one week after completion of your treatment. However, some individuals may see results almost immediately and some individuals may not experience decrease of body circumference or weight loss at all.
What signs of change may I notice during my treatments?
Some physiological changes can occur during your program. Initial changes are typically noted beginning around the first week and may include changes in stool, including lightening of color, loosening of texture, and floating. This is due to the increased fat content of the stool as the body rids the fat via the digestive tract. Upon palpation, superficial body fat may begin to feel softer or more ‘liquid’ during the program. Also, finding and tracking the size and texture of any ‘fat nodules’ or lipomas in field of treatment may be a useful monitor of initial change. Due to the hydration aspect of the program, some patients may feel bloated during the first week of hydration. Drinking plenty of water is so important for flushing out the fat that has leaked from the cell and for lymphatic stimulation.
Why do you take my measurements?
In order to accurately gauge your loss of body circumference in inches, it’s important to take accurate measurements. These are taken at specific anatomical sites before the first treatment, after the final treatment, and one week after the final treatment is completed. We also highly recommend before and after pictures of targeted areas. All these steps allow both the doctor and the patient to have accurate pre and post data – the pictures in particular, have proven to be very effective. This is the most objective (it doesn’t depend on how you feel) way to assess your progress.
Do the treatments increase toxins in my system?
During a large study, liver panels were taken pre and post and no changes were shown. Among its 500 or so functions, the liver is one of the body’s major detoxification pathways and any increase in toxin would show as increase in liver activity.
Are there any other changes from the treatment besides loss of fat?
During a large study, it was shown that Cholesterol and triglyceride levels were normalized. This means that people who were 10 points high tended to drop 10 points and people who were 100 points high tended to drop 100 points. Also noted are skin improving changes. The laser has been FDA approved for wound healing.
The science behind ZERONA® The remarkable images demonstrate 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. 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. ZERONA®, the most researched medical procedure on the market. 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 with an average reduction of 4.1 inches in just two weeks.
