Harvard Scientists Commend Erchonia for Excellence in Clinical Research for the Zerona Laser
Date:8/6/2013

McKinney, TX (PRWEB) August 06, 2013

In the latest volume of the medical journal, Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, three Harvard scientists reviewed the merits of laser therapy for body contouring and concluded that Erchonia’s research for its Zerona low-level laser device has, "set the precedent on how aesthetic devices should be evaluated." One of the article’s authors, Michael Hamblin, PhD., is recognized as the world’s leading expert in low level laser therapy, making the praise all the more significant.

Zerona was the first noninvasive aesthetic device to receive FDA market clearance in the U.S. for circumferential reduction of the waist, hips and thighs. Erchonia tested the Zerona laser using a placebo-controlled, randomized, double blind, multisite clinical investigation evaluating 67 study participants. The patients treated with the Zerona laser experienced an average reduction of 3.51 inches across the waist, hips and thighs in just two weeks.

The article praised Erchonia’s clinical approach for Zerona, noting, "The clinical trial absence of diet restrictions, exercise requirements or any other adjunctive components properly illustrated the clinical utility of the Zerona and set the precedent on how aesthetic devices should be evaluated."

Steven Shanks, president of Erchonia comments, "Having an expert such as Dr. Hamblin recognize the quality of our research and the clinical utility of Erchonia’s Zerona laser is truly an honor. For a small medical device manufacturer like Erchonia, quality clinical research is pivotal for our overall success. Erchonia’s research stands out in aesthetic medicine because more and more devices, such as Erchonia’s competitors, such as fat-freezing devices, are tested in non-randomized, non-controlled clinical trials."

This is not the first time an independent review recognized the clinical utility of Zerona. An article published in Clinics in Plastic Surgery in 2011 stated, "Zerona is in a unique and beneficial category as it exemplifies a truly non-invasive approach, inducing slimming without cell death or upregulation of inflammation."
