WHAT TO EXPECT
The process from the beginning:
First is the free consultation to ensure candidacy. If it is determined that you are a good candidate based on your medical evaluation and consultation, we will get your appointments scheduled. We will also recommend for you to start on supplements to ensure that your body is primed for maximum results. You then come in three times a week for two weeks, every other day. Throughout the process, we ask that you drink plenty of water, stop alcohol consumption, and exercise 30 minutes at least every other day. We will do measurements and a photo (if you like) on the first session, and again after the sixth session. We then wait a week and repeat measurements and a photo.
What to expect at appointments:
You can expect 40 minutes to relax, read or do absolutely nothing. The Zerona treatment is completely painless. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. Each treatment you will be met by your technician who will position the laser at the desired areas of the body. She/He will step out for 20 minutes while the front of your body is treated, and then will return to reset for the backside of your body for an additional 20 minutes. After you are done you can get back to your normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, no pain, no swelling or discomfort. This is a symptom –free process except for losing unwanted inches.
What the treatment is like:
Once you have signed on to receive your ZERONA ZONE treatment, you will schedule six 40 minute treatment sessions over a two week period. During these painless procedures, you will remove clothing down to your underwear or bathing suit. (Please note that it is your choice what to wear. However, the laser does not work through clothing, so less is best. We are completely professional in a private setting, and we will make the session absolutely comfortable for you.) There is no anesthesia, gels, creams, numbing agents, or needles required. You just lie back in a private room for 20 minutes as the cool laser shines on you, but never makes contact with your skin. The technician will then return and flip you over to treat your backside for an additional 20 minutes.
What to expect during a recovery process:
One of the greatest things about Zerona is that it doesn’t require any recovery time whatsoever. It is non-invasive and does no damage to your tissues. Nothing needs to heal! There have been no reported side effects during or after the treatment process. Patients come before work, during lunch, or anytime throughout the day and enjoy the relaxation of the treatment.
What results to expect and when to expect them:
You can expect a loss of 3 to 9 inches over all that will generally become noticeable after the first week of treatments. Results are optimized in one month. It’s up to you to maintain the lifestyle that will keep the fat from returning. One of the very good things about Zerona is that fat cells are not damaged or removed—it’s a very gentle process. And if you like the results and want to continue — it is completely safe to start a new series of treatments immediately.
How results vary from person to person:
Due to the differences in physiology from one person to the next, individual results will vary. We try our best when reviewing your history to ascertain the type of fat you have and the type of lifestyle you live (diet, exercise, supplements, stress levels, etc.) to ensure that you will be able to maintain the results you receive. The makers of Zerona state that 5% of clients are non-responders. That means that 95% will see results if they follow the program. The more the compliant the client, the better the results have been.
We recommend Fiber, Niacin, and L-Carnitine to assist the body in removing and properly processing fat released during Zerona treatments. This helps to ensure maximum results from your treatment. Once released from the cells, the fatty material is absorbed by lymphatic vessels and transported to local lymph nodes. From there, the material is released into the circulatory system so that the debris can be safely processed by the liver.
Fiber increases the productivity of your digestive system. We want to first make sure that you are regular. You can get anything down the drain if your pipes are clogged!
Niacin plays an essential role in energy metabolism in the living cell and DNA repair. During metabolic reactions such as fatty acid oxidation, Niacin serves as an oxidizing (burning) agent, which helps lead to the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates. Niacin helps to burn the fat and makes it easier to get it out of the body versus getting re-absorbed by the cell. It also makes it possible for the fatty acids and triglycerides sitting in the extra-cellular space to be absorbed into the blood stream rather than reabsorbed by the fat cells.
L-Carnitine is used in the body to regulate fat oxidation (burning). It is responsible for transporting fat to the fat furnace in our cells called mitochondria. Unless fat makes it to the mitochondria, it cannot be oxidized, no matter how much you diet or exercise.
Niacin, L-Carnitine, and fiber can be purchased at our office at anytime, and they are included in some of our packages.
Additional information to know before you start your sessions:
We want to make sure that you are a good candidate and educate you on the procedure as well as find out what your expectations are. Should you be a good candidate and want to start treatments, we will discuss the following:
~ HYDRATION — SO important for elimination of the fat that has been leaked from the fat cells. Staying well hydrated stimulates your lymphatic system and helps to flush out unwanted fat. It also aids the digestive system to work more smoothly.
~ SUPPLEMENTATION – Prior to the Zerona sessions, you will be placed on fiber, L-Carnitine, and a low dose, flush-free Niacin.
~ DIET – Just because you do Zerona laser treatments does not give you permission to eat junk food. It is a waste of your time and money. This laser works, but you have to work a little too. We can help discuss ways to help you control hunger and cravings.
~ LYMPHATIC MASSAGE – This is a very gentle, light massage. This helps release fluid, or in this case, the fat, that is out of your cells waiting to be picked up and eliminated. We include one lymphatic massage during your Zerona treatments. It is a great treatment, and totally relaxing!
