How Zerona Produces Safe, Nonsurgical Body Contouring in New Albany

If you love the idea of appearing slimmer and trimmer but you're less fond of the prospect of cosmetic surgery to achieve that result, then you'll be excited to learn how the Zerona treatments offered at 1st Choice Health & Wellness can produce safe, nonsurgical body contouring in New Albany. This technique employs laser fat removal technology that stimulates your body's own fat release mechanisms. Let's take a look at how this extraordinary method works.

Understanding Nonsurgical Body Contouring

Nonsurgical body contouring is a non-invasive alternative to procedure such as liposuction. Traditional cosmetic surgery to remove fat actually removes fat tissue, limiting your body's ability to store energy as needed and possibly interfering with its fluid balance. Liposuction also requires sedation or anesthetic and carries the same risks as other forms of surgery, including infections, embolisms and loss of nerve function. Nonsurgical body contouring avoids all of those pitfalls by helping your body release its fat stores without removing the fat cells themselves.

Zerona therapy uses an instrument called a low-level or "cold" laser to achieve this effect. When directs on areas of fatty tissue, the laser energy creates tiny openings called transitory pores in the fat cells while also liquefying the fat within those cells. This allows the fat to pass through the pores into the body, where it is taken up by the lymphatic system. A course of Zerona therapy can help individuals anywhere from 5 to 11 inches total off of their thighs, hips and waist.

Principles of Cold Laser Fat Removal

Don't confuse cold laser fat removal with other medical techniques that use a higher-energy laser. The cold laser used for Zerona nonsurgical body contouring does not cut or burn the skin; it simply passes right through it without doing any harm whatsoever. Nor does it damage any of the capillaries or other structures surrounding the fat cells. In fact, cold laser therapy is employed in other medical applications as a method of tissue healing and injury rehabilitation. It's certainly much safer and easier on the body than liposuction. You won't experience any of the post-operative bruising, pain, swelling, neuropathy or other side effects associated with surgical fat removal.

Since laser fat removal sessions last only about 40 minutes and require no recovery time afterward, it is also uniquely convenient and practical, allowing you to schedule sessions without missing a beat in your busy daily life. Zerona is the currently the first and only form of laser fat removal to be approved by the FDA.
