This 49-year old patient wanted some quick help with overall fat removal, but did not wish to undergo surgical fat reduction at this time. She decided on Zerona treatments instead. Zerona is a non-surgical, FDA-approved fat reduction laser system. Over a period of several weeks, she underwent six Zerona treatments. She lost a total of 4.5 pounds, and 7.5 inches. She was very pleased after her treatments.
Now, about three years later, she wanted to refine some of the natural changes that have occurred with the passage of time, only this time, after discussing her options with Dr. Lepore, she decided to address her situation with a non-surgical intervention. She had heard about Zerona in San Jose, and wanted to know more about it. She decided to undergo further contouring of her inner and outer thighs, flanks and back, using the FDA-approved, non-invasive Zerona laser technology. After several weeks of treatments, she was happy to achieve a dramatic, non-surgical result; in all, losing a total of 14.25 pounds, and 13 inches.
This is a patient who wanted some help in reducing what she felt were "stubborn" areas of excess fat in her abdomen, flanks, and thighs. She's very fit, but like many people, finds that fitness and good diet don't always affect some spots you'd like to target.
She decided to try non-surgical fat reduction, through Zerona. Zerona is a laser light treatment for reducing fat. It's a non-surgical, comfortable, no recovery downtime method of eliminating moderate amounts of fat. The light energy opens the fat cells, releasing their contents. The fat is then flushed out of the body, naturally.
Most patients, like this one, see optimal results in 9 to 12 treatment sessions, lasting approximately 40 minutes each. Patients often schedule treatments at lunchtime, or after work, and follow a program of increased fluid intake, gentle exercise and massage, and maintain a healthy diet.
In this case, our patient achieved a loss of 5 inches of fat, measured in all areas. She enjoyed her Zerona treatments, and is very pleased with her results.
Most of our San Jose Zerona patients are interested in moderate, or minimal changes, without surgery or traditional liposuction. This is a perfect example of the type of result that can be achieved with Zerona . The patient underwent a series of treatments, during a period of about 3 three weeks. At the end of the treatment period, the patient has lost a total of 7 pounds. And, she has lost 10 inches overall. The results are obvious; 2 inches lost from her waist, and 2 inches from the hips. She has also lost inches from her arms, thighs. The patient is very pleased with her outcome.
Zerona for men in San Jose. This is a story typical of our times. A man accompanying his wife or significant other, as they're investigating a procedure, who begins wondering, "What are the possibilities for cosmetic improvement, for me?"
In this case, the man accompanying his wife, was interested in reducing some troublesome areas. In his late 40s, he had gained some weight, and was bothered by the changed dimensions of his abdomen, chest and hip areas. As a newcomer to the "cosmetic procedure" world, he thought he might try a non-surgical method of fat reduction.
The method he chose was Zerona, the FDA-approved laser treatment for overall fat reduction. He looked at Before and After photos, asked questions, and read about the series of treatments. (Most patients elect a course of 6 to 9 brief, painless Zerona sessions, over several weeks.)
After his course of treatments, he had lost a total of 8 inches, (inclusive of all areas). He is very pleased with the results, and states that the treatments have given him the jump-start he'd been wanting for a continuing diet and exercise program.
He is also considering liposuction treatment on the stubborn areas (the classic "love handles" and abdominal areas) that may not respond to diet and exercise.
