Laser Lipo Q & A

What is Zerona LipoLaser?

Zerona LipoLaser is a new procedure that can help sculpt and shape the body without the need for invasive and dangerous surgical procedures. This technique allows patients to experience real results with virtually no disruption to their normal daily activities, nor any downtime needed to recover. Zerona LipoLaser is a great option for targeting stubborn deposits of fat in the hips, stomach, and thighs. Many patients are frustrated that no matter how hard they exercise or how carefully they diet, these areas retain a store of fat.

How does Zerona LipoLaser work?

The Zerona LipoLaser works by using a carefully directed laser to create a small perforation in the walls of targeted fat cells. Those cells are not destroyed, but the fat inside is able to leave the cell through the perforation. The body is then able to process that fat through the lymphatic system. The end result is a reduction in fat and lost inches in the hips, waist, and thighs. The treatment itself is quick and painless, and it takes approximately 20 minutes on each side. Once the treatment process is complete, patients are able to resume their normal daily activities.

What is mesotherapy and how can it impact cellulite?

Mesotherapy treatment involves multiple injections of various substances beneath the skin's surface, with the intention of reducing the appearance of cellulite. Each patient receives an injection that contains a customized formula, which can include a blend of medications, amino acids, vitamins and/or minerals. These injections work by dissolving the fat within cellulite. Additional benefits include improved circulation, more efficient lymphatic drainage and a loosening of the connective tissue that creates the lumpy external appearance of cellulite. Patients who receive mesotherapy injections report drastic improvements in the appearance of cellulite. While each patient is unique, desired results are usually attained after a series of 2 to 15 separate treatments, and additional sessions are required to maintain results.
