What is Zerona?
The ERCHONIA® Zerona-Z6 Laser is specially designed for use during non-invasive body contouring (ZERONA®). The Zerona-Z6 Laser is applied externally and has proven through four double-blind clinical trials to emulsify adipose tissue.
Zerona-Z6 is a new body-sculpting procedure designed to target fat and contour the body without invasive surgery. Zerona-Z6 unlike other procedures, allows the client to continue their daily activities without interruptions from surgery, pain, wounds or garments. Zerona-Z6 works by utilizing the Erchonia’s patented low level laser technology to emulsify adipose tissue which then releases into the interstitial space. Our bodies remove the fat from the area and transport the fat through the lymphatic system creating a slimming effect. The Zerona-Z6 was proven through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site, and placebo controlled study in which clients averaged a loss of 3.72* inches compared to the placebo group that lost only a half an inch.
How Zerona Works
The technology employed by the Zerona Z6 laser was initially developed as an adjunct to liposuction procedures to help speed up the recovery process. However, it was found that these cold laser treatments could be used as a stand-alone procedure that promoted the liberation of stored intracellular fat.
Zerona utilizes cold laser treatment, also called low-level laser technology (LLLT). This “cold” laser technique uses low levels of light that are not enough to heat your body’s tissue.
When it’s used cosmetically to target fat cells, the Zerona procedure creates an overall body slimming effect that can be used to reduce fat in your: Waist, Chest, Pecs, Back, Neck, Arms, Thighs, Hips, Ankles, and more!
The Zerona Z6 laser uses low-level laser stimulation to disrupt the membrane of fat cells. This disruption induces the formation of a transitory pore that causes the fatty material of the cell to seep out and move into the interstitial space regulated by the lymphatic system. The result is that fat cells within adipose tissue are shrunk instead of being killed, which can be harmful to the integrity of bodily tissue.

With some patients, results using Zerona will be seen after a few treatments, others will see results towards the end of the treatment cycle as their body will take more time to process the fat.
