VASER LipoSelection and Zerona Lipo LaserNo Longer Available Visit our liposuction procedures page for a listing of all of the current procedures available from Dr. Serrão.
ZERONA® is a new non-invasive body sculpting procedure designed to remove fat and contour the body without invasive surgery. ZERONA®, unlike other procedures, allows the patient to continue their daily activities without interruptions from surgery, pain, wounds, or garments. ZERONA® works by utilizing the Erchonia® Laser Scanner, which is also FDA market cleared for laser assisted liposuction. The Laser Scanner allows for the emulsification of adipose tissue, which releases into the interstitial space. The excess fat is then passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification. The ZERONA® procedure was proven through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site, and placebo-controlled study in which patients, on average, lost 3.64 inches from their waist, hips, and thighs. This result is dramatic compared to the placebo group, which only lost an average of half an inch.
HOW IT WORKS
Voluminous adipose tissue can appear when fatty material is present, and this, in turn, can bring about enlarged subcutaneous fat regions. Because subcutaneous fat is close to the skin's surface, laser emulsification can have a dramatic effect. The collapse of adipose arrangements have been noted after laser therapy, reducing their volume and providing effective body contouring results. Four separate histological studies were performed to assess the efficacy of laser in the emulsification (liquefaction) of fat. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were utilized to analyze adipose tissue. SEM and TEM images revealed the collapse of adipose arrangements subsequent to laser therapy. The voluminous state of an adipocyte cell is reduced due to the emulsification process. The fatty material is evacuated from the cell and moves into extracellular space. The voluminous nature of adipocytes due to the accumulation of fatty material is what gives rise to an enlarged subcutaneous fat region. ZERONA® induces the formation of a transitory pore in the membrane of the fat cell. The pore enables the fatty material to seep out across the aperture and into extracellular space.

Treatment takes 40 minutes and needs to be administered three times a week for two weeks for best results. The laser will be applied over the targeted area i.e.…waist, hips, and thighs for 20 minutes and then the patient will turn over and do the same treatment on the opposite side. This should be a minimum, for maximum results consult your physician about doing more than one two week series.
What You Can Expect
After completion of the two week protocol clinical trials resulted in an average of 3.5 inches lost; and some patients losing up to 9 inches. Many patients do not see noticeable results until after the last session. Don't get discouraged and stay with the protocol. As with any procedure results will vary and may be more dramatic from one patient to the next.
