Zerona is the exciting new system for inch loss and body contouring. Zerona is the first non-invasive procedure proven to remove unwanted fat, and it does so without surgery and the attendant side effects.I had the opportunity last week to meet the ladies behind Zerona Utah.
Utilizing cold laser technology, the process transforms subcutaneous fat into a liquified substance that can be moved into the tissue between cells and expelled naturally from the body.
Subcutaneous fat - commonly known as cellulite - is located between the skin and the skeletal muscles. Being so close to the surface is what allows the laser to create pores in the cells and remove the emulsified fat.
Patients with excess amounts of visceral fat, which is located deeper in the body beneath the muscles, are not good candidates for the Zerona procedure, although any subcutaneous fat on the body will still respond to the Zerona process.
As always, before beginning any health treatment, patients should seek the advice of their primary care physicians.
If you know me, I am the biggest skeptic. I lack trust in many things, and this was no exception. Today, I will have my fourth treatment with the Zerona, and in the past week I have lost 2" from my body (according to my measurements) and 3lbs in the last week. The laser, in conjunction with nutrition change, water intake and movement, literally changes the fat in the body. You can read more about it on the Zerona Utah site.
Treatment starts with a weigh in and measurements. Then you go through a three day detoxification in order to prepare your body to better eliminate the fat that has been 'melted' through the natural detoxification process. It went something like this:
For three days, it was a lemon, pure maple syrup, and distilled water mixture, with the herbal supplements that you see. Let me be clear, this was terrible for me. I work out very hard every single day and by the third day I was sick and had to have lunch. I did not lose any weight doing the detox, but I do believe it helped me with my cravings for chocolate and the occasional shake from the Chick Fil-a down the street. Also, any herbal supplement makes me dry heave to swallow it. This is no exception. Not sure if it is the coating on the pill itself or the thought, but it was hard for -me- to swallow. Literally. All in all, this detox got me drinking even more water than my usual load, which is never a bad thing.
So, do I think the Zerona treatments are working? I do. I am even surprising myself by this. The fat on my body is really hard. About 36 hours after a treatment I feel it goes gelatinous, and incredibly soft. This is the point I feel the need to run three miles to burn that soft fat off. :) I like this. I feel like my tummy is smaller. My goal going in was two fold, A: help me get over my weight loss plateau. (Which I officially did yesterday when I hit 30lbs of weight loss, WOOT.) and B: Shrink my tummy smaller than my boobs. Yes, yes...gross but true, and so far I think it is on its way.
I love my treatments! Synergie may be my favorite part of the treatments. I get to wear this fantastic white jumpsuit, and have what I compare to a full body massage. I am not doing it justice. Synergie helps in the look of skin, and smooths the appearance of cellulite.

However, my opinions of the treatments are my own, and my mom taught me never to lie, so the things you will read about my experience, results (or lack there of) are true.**
