Zerona Sculpts Away Stubborn Fat

Over the last 15 years, Erchonia, makers of the Zerona Laser, has been conducting research and development with the world’s leading physicians to advance the science of low level lasers for body sculpting and other uses. Prior to market introduction, all Erchonia lasers are proven safe and effective through independent clinical trials. Currently thousands of Erchonia’s lasers are used daily to reduce body fat, eliminate pain, and treat acne.

The testing of the Zerona laser involved a placebo-controlled, randomized, double blind, multisite clinical investigation. 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.

In the August 6, 2013 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 research for the 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.

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."

Family Doctors of Green Valley have added this service to their weight loss programs because they believe in its safety and effectiveness, have studied the research into its safety and effectiveness, and believe it is a powerful way to get rid of stubborn fat.
