The Zerona Laser has been around for several years and claims to help patients lose weight without the need for cosmetic surgery, diet or exercise. A non-invasive procedure, the Zerona Laser is said to be a good alternative to having liposuction.
The Zerona laser fat removal procedure works by using a low-level Erchnoia laser (which is also used in liposuction and in the treatment of acne) to emit cold laser energy into the areas with problem fat. The fat is said to be broken down by the laser pulses and channelled out of the body naturally. It is claimed that using this laser fat removal technique, patients can expect to see a loss of up to nine inches in the affected area.
The pilot studies showed that patients could lose up to nine inches after their first set of treatments with the average loss being five to six inches in just two weeks. No side effects were reported. Many people were excited by the news of the Zerona laser fat removal technique because it means weight loss without the pain of diet or exercise, and it is a non-invasive procedure therefore there is no recovery time after treatment.
However there are no long-term studies on the effects of using the laser in this manner so it is unknown what the long-term side effects, if any, are of this technique. There is also no research to show whether patients kept the inches off or whether the fat regained the inches in the short-term.
