The Zeltiq procedure utilizes highly controlled cooling technology to safely and effectively reduce and eliminate fat cells from specific areas of the body. Unlike traditional invasive surgical procedures, the Zeltiq procedure is non-invasive. It delivers significant fat layer reduction in targeted areas to help contour the body and reclaim its natural shape. The Zeltiq procedure requires no anesthesia or recovery time.
During the procedure, tissue is drawn into a cup with mild vacuum pressure that may initially cause some discomfort or an unfamiliar sensation. Patients may also experience a mildly uncomfortable cold sensation that usually subsides within ten minutes after the procedure begins.
Once the procedure is complete, patients can immediately return to their normal activities including work and exercise. In most patients, a single procedure is sufficient and will provide noticeable and measurable fat reduction in two to four months.
Zerona® is an FDA-approved body contouring procedure that uses safe, effective noninvasive techniques to remove excess fat from targeted areas of the body. Manufactured by Erchonia, Zerona uses low level laser energy to liquefy fat before it is absorbed naturally by the lymphatic system, allowing for a slimmed appearance in the waist, hips, thighs and nearly any other area of the body with localized fat deposits.
During each Zerona treatment session, the targeted body area is positioned under the laser for 20 minutes treating the front of the body and another 20 treating the backside. Each treatment session takes about 40 minutes to perform, during which time patients can read, listen to music or simply relax. There is no anesthesia required and no downtimes. Most patients require a series of six treatment sessions in order to achieve their desired results, although a specific treatment plan will be developed by your doctor based on your individual needs.
