Zerona Laser Treatments Zap Fat According to a Study at the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery


Recent news stories in Cincinnati and Rochester New York discussed the new Zerona Laser which uses light to zap fat, shrinking the cells without surgery.

Dr. Shalini Gupta with Dermatology Laser & Vein Center in Cincinnati said in the interview "What it basically does is, it melts fat and it stimulates the fat cells to weaken their cell walls, and the fat just kind of leaks out of the cells and your lymphatics actually gets rid of it."

The patient in the story claims to lose 2 1/2 inches after 6 treatments which is impressive results for a procedure with no shots or surgery.

This is our first coverage of this procedure on American Health and Beauty and we will research it further and get opinions from some of our advisory doctors on whether the lymphatic system can actually remove fat or just redistribute it around the body.
