Zerona Reviews: A Patient's Experience


Patients all over the country are interested in non-surgical inch loss. One patient from Michigan shares her experience with Zerona, the first FDA approved device for circumferential reduction. This is Emily's Zerona Patient Review

Zerona is a non-invasive device that's used to help patients lose inches in only a couple of weeks. Low level laser technology (LLLT) helps patients lose inches with treatments lasting only 40 minutes per session. Zerona was the first non-invasive aesthetic device to receive FDA market clearance in the U.S. for circumferential reduction of the waist, hips, and thighs.

Dr. Robert Burke, a cosmetic surgeon who offers Zerona in Ann Arbor, MI, has had several very satisfied patients. His patient Emily lost 4.5 inches and 4.5 lbs with Zerona and says part of the reason she chose Zerona was to avoid undergoing a surgical procedure. "I personally wanted something that was not invasive. I didn't want any downtime. I currently work out 5 days a week, generally for about 6 hours, so for me I just didn't want to take any time away from working out and my life."

Many physicians recommend following a diet, exercise and vitamin supplement plan in order to see improved results. Emily was already active and in good shape, but had a hard time with some spotty fat deposits. "I've always had a couple of those extra inches that I've never been able to lose. Dr. Burke presented me with the Zerona option which at first sounded too good to be true."

Treatment was simple and painless. As Emily describes, "I just laid there for 20 minutes on each side and read a book and relaxed. It was easy and nice." With the Zerona treatments, she was able to get back into many of her size 2 jeans and says she'd suggest the procedure to her family and friends. "I would say try it. I was close to my ideal body weight and I think I'm a good candidate to show that even if you're struggling to lose those last couple of inches or pounds, this is an amazing option without having any downtime."

It should be noted that according to the manufacturer, in their clinical trial they saw an average loss of 3.64 inches. Many physicians pass on a Zerona guarantee to their patients that if the patient doesn't lose more than 3" in total circumference, the patient will receive another series of treatments for free. A treatment session runs for 2 weeks, coming to the physician's office every other day for 40 minutes under the lights.
