What is Zerona?
A non invasive alternative to liposuction, Zerona is a cold laser treatment used for fat melting that requires no needles or anesthesia. Dr. Bunin uses the low level laser to emulsify (melt) fat cells, moving their content into interstitial spaces within the body. Over the course of six, forty minute treatments scheduled every other day, Zerona can be used to slim the abdomen, hips, or thighs.
Zerona vs. Smart Lipo
While Smart Lipo procedures require small incisions to remove fat, Zerona treatments are non-invasive and require no downtime. Also, Smart Lipo procedures typically rely on heating tissues, which can cause discomfort. In contrast, by using a cold low level laser, Zerona body sculpting treatments cause no bruising or swelling and allow patients to resume their normal activities immediately following a session.
Some patients may see results after a few sessions while most patients begin to see results after the two weeks of Zerona treatments.
What is Lipo-Ex?
Lipo-Ex uses bi-polar radio frequency energy to heat fat cells until they melt and are flushed away through the patient’s lymphatic system. By using a controlled Lipo-Ex electric field, Dr. Bunin and her staff can massage the treatment area and gently raise the core temperature in order to melt fat. Lipo-Ex procedures also tighten skin and stimulate collagen production. Treatment areas include the face, the chin, the abdomen, hips, and thighs.
Lipo-Ex procedures last one to two hours and require no downtime. Dr. Bunin and her staff take the time to discuss the number of treatments each patient will need to reach their goal using Lipo-Ex.
