Double-blind clinical trials of the Zerona fat-loss laser indicate that it is effective in stimulating emulsification of fat within the body’s cells, according to the manufacturer’s website, MyZerona.com. Patients typically begin to see results after four to six sessions of therapy.
In clinical trials on the thighs, hips and waist, patients treated with the Zerona laser saw an average loss of 3.64 inches, notes MyZerona.com. Physicians have used Zerona since 2009. The laser offers an alternative to more invasive procedures such as liposuction. Treatments with Zerona are painless and are most effective for people looking to remove localized fat pockets or reduce body fat percentages.
