Targeting Stubborn Areas of Fat with Non-Invasive Treatments

standing on a scaleAnyone that has ever struggled with losing weight can understand the frustration. Losing weight is difficult.Even when you reach your target weight, there may be areas that are stubbornly holding on to fat. Because we can’t dictate where the weight will be lost, trouble areas like the belly, thighs, and buttocks may still have deposits of fat. In order to lose weight in your problem area, you must lose it from all over. There are many different methods available to target those stubborn areas of fat removal include invasive (surgery such as liposuction) or non-invasive (such as the Zerona Laser).   

When most people think of body contouring, the first option that comes to mind is liposuction. This option is the most invasive and usually, requires the use of general anesthesia. Recovery time depends on the area of the body the fat is removed from and how much is removed. It is not uncommon to need a week for recovery. The physician and patient decide together on how much fat can safely be extracted as removing too much can result in lumpiness and visible skin indentations. Keep in mind that the more fat removed, the higher the surgical risk.

Laser and Skin Care Medspa has invested in one of the safest ways to contour those pesky problem areas. Zerona Laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure that can help you achieve the results you are looking for without the complications of surgery. Zerona utilizes a low-level (cold) laser technology. This low-level laser therapy is applied externally for 20 minutes on the front and then 20 minutes on the back. Once the treatment is completed, you can get dressed and continue on with your day.

The Zerona laser is both FDA and Health Canada approved, making it a safe choice of treatment. Administered by professionals that are fully trained in Advanced Procedure Protocol. While the number of treatments required will be dependent on each individual patient, the suggested treatment schedule to see measurable results is six treatments over a two week period.

The Zerona procedure has been proven through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site and placebo-controlled clinical study. There are well over 200,000 treatments performed in Canada with an average of a three-inch reduction in fat measurements. As with any treatment, results will vary depending on the individual, and this information should be used as a guide only.

While the results from the Zerona Laser treatment may be seen one week into the plan, the long-term results are up to you. Zerona Laser works best when paired with a change in lifestyle choices such as eating a healthy diet and incorporating daily exercise into your life. These modest changes are necessary to maintain your new shape for years to come.
