HOUSTON, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Skinovative(R), one of the country's premier aesthetic medical facilities, has just added the newest FDA approved non-invasive body contouring procedure, the Zerona(TM) Laser, to their list of treatment options.
The Zerona(TM) is a low-level laser designed to remove fat and contour the body without invasive surgery. Recent clinical studies which tracked the circumferences of patient's waist, hips, and thighs, showed total reduction ranging from 3 to 9 inches with an average of 5 to 6 six inches, in just 2 weeks.
The Zerona(TM) laser is a hot topic in the cosmetic industry; it has been featured on CBS's "The Doctors" and several regional news channels. Dr. Drew Ordon, lead physician on "The Doctors" recently said, "When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. But you cannot argue with the results. Inches are inches, and the Zerona(TM) removes inches, more than seven inches on the 'test' case we did for The Doctors. I have to say, I didn't believe it at first either."
Dr. Michael Gomez of Skinovative(R) explains, "Unlike liposuction, and in contrast to high-power, high-heat devices that melt fat, the new Zerona(TM) laser produces a low-level, or 'cold', output that has no thermal effect on the body's tissue. Instead, the non-invasive laser stimulates a biological reaction in the fat cells causing them to liquefy and discharge their contents. The excess fat is then processed by the lymphatic system and excreted through the body's natural processes, without any negative side effects."
Skinovative(R) director Chris Bailey said, "The procedure could not be easier, during treatment the Zerona(TM) shines it's five low level lasers onto the desired areas. Clients simply relax comfortably, listen to music, work on their blackberry, or take a nap. The laser light is visible, but there is no sensation during or after the treatment. Since no recovery time is needed, clients are able to resume normal activities immediately."
Bailey went on to say, "Zerona(TM) clients are treated six times over two weeks. Each of the six sessions takes 40 minutes. Treatment is delivered 20 minutes to the front of the body and 20 minutes to the back of the body. Clients are able to have the front and back of their waist, hips, and thighs treated all at the same time, or focus on one or other areas."
Dr. Gomez said, "In addition to making a person look better, the new Zerona(TM) treatment may also make them healthier. While the treatment is not yet FDA-cleared for that purpose, blood tests performed before and after the procedure during the clinical trials have suggested some improvement in cholesterol and triglyceride levels."
Dr. Gomez added, "The Zerona(TM) is not a weight loss program, or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. It is a great way to slim stubborn problem areas, and can be a 'jump-start' to a person's slimming efforts or as motivation for maintaining a healthier lifestyle."
