There are few things in life that are more stubborn than fat — as witnessed by your efforts to get rid of it. You work out, you cut calories, and the fat just hangs on. You’re exhausted and frustrated at falling short of your body-shape goals.
The good news is that we can help you close the gap with our exciting Zerona® fat-loss technology. While we may focus on heart health here at Humble Cardiology Associates, Dr. Madaiah Revana recognizes the importance of weight loss for your health and for putting the finishing touches on this loss for cosmetic reasons.
This is why we offer both weight management services and a laser technology that can help you in the battle of the bulge. Here, we focus on the latter.
To appreciate how our innovative Zerona technology works, it’s important to understand how fat works. One of the most important roles your fat cells play is storing fat for cellular energy.
After adolescence, you generally carry the same number of fat cells in your body throughout adulthood. When you gain weight, it’s largely because existing fat cells grow in size.
How Zerona can help
Zerona is a technology that’s cleared by the FDA for overall body circumference reduction. Unlike other fat-reduction technologies, Zerona doesn’t destroy fat cells. Instead, it releases the fat stored within the cells.
With the Zerona system, we deliver cold laser energy into your fat cells. This energy temporarily opens the cell and allows the liquid fats to come out, and then they’re naturally flushed away by your body’s lymphatic system.
A noninvasive solution for stubborn fat
The Zerona system features six heads that deliver the cold laser therapy. These devices don't touch your skin, so there’s no:
In fact, our Zerona technology is so safe that we can use it tackle stubborn pockets of fat most anywhere on your body, including your:
- Upper arms
Each Zerona treatment lasts only about 20 minutes, and you can use the time to catch up on emails or some reading. Depending on your goals and the number and size of the areas you want to target, you might benefit from a series of Zerona treatments, which we space apart to allow time for the released fat to be flushed out.
