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.
