Zerona Z6 Fat Loss & Contour Laser
What is a Zerona Z6 Fat Loss Laser?
The Zerona Z6 is a low level laser for fat loss and body contouring developed by Erchonia. The FDA-cleared Zerona-Z6 laser utilizes innovative cold laser, or low-level laser technology (LLLT), to offer clients a non-invasive fat loss solution. Zerona treatments are the first of their kind, targeting and emulsifying excess fat instead of killing fat cells.
The Zerona Z6 is a stand laser with six adjustable heads. The low level laser beams penetrate the skin to target the fat cells. The cells are stimulated to work properly releasing stored fat. This process is through bio-stimulation. The fat cells are not damaged, heated or frozen but are stimulated to open and to release the contents of the cell, the stored fat, into the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system then moves the fatty liquids out of the body through the liver and the kidneys. A good example of this is taking a grape (the fat cell) and stimulating it so that it lets go of its contents becoming flat - like a raisin. The result is a decrease in the volume of stored fat in the area that is treated. When this happens, the cell is open and empty for around 48 hours before it closes back up. It is absolutely essential that several steps are taken to keep the fat moving through the lymph system and not re-stored in the cells. People treated with the Zerona Z6 fat loss and body contouring laser are excited to see changes in as little as six treatments.
What areas of the body can be treated with the Zerona Z6 Fat Loss Laser?
We have stored fat all through the body. Most of us have trouble spots where we cannot reduce fat storage. The Zerona Z6 is FDA cleared for the treatment of the overall body, which means you can treat virtually any body part. The Zerona Z6 laser has successfully decreased fat stores in the waist, chest, back, neck, arms, thighs, hips, and ankles. The treatment does not cause damage to the fat cells but instead causes them to empty. The goal is to decrease the volume of stored fat without causing any damage to the tissue.
What should I expect when I come in for a treatment with the Zerona Z6 Fat Loss Laser?
The treatments consist of 2-20 minute laser applications. The six laser heads are positioned around the area of the body being treated. If the abdomen is a patient’s main concern, then after a pre-treatment circumference measurement is taken, they will lay comfortably on their back on the massage table with clothes pulled up or down so the lasers do not go through any clothing layers. Wearing loose cotton clothing is helpful. The heads of the laser are positioned appropriately and are turned on. All six of the lasers are on a robotic rotation so that they cover the greatest amount of tissue possible. After the first 20 minute session is completed, the person turns onto their stomach. The lasers are again positioned this time on the back and turned on. The low level laser therapy is completed after the second 20 minute treatment is done.
Will I feel anything during the treatment?
There is no pain associated with this treatment. Some people are able to feel the massaging pulse of the low level lasers. Others say that the treatment is very relaxing. The majority of people do not feel any sensation with the 2-20 minute treatment sessions.
Are the fat cells injured with the Zerona Z6 treatments?
There is no damage to the fat cells with the Zerona Z6 treatment. Quite the opposite is true.
Enlarged fat cells can send our entire body into dysfunction but help can be found with a few Zerona Z6 treatments to reset those cells. This cell reset will improve the fat cell’s major functions while helping you drop inches.
Our fat cells are complex and dynamic entities that affect an astounding number of bodily functions. This endocrine organ actually supports the processes that keep us lean and assists our bodies with the following functions. It helps regulate metabolism, supports the immune system, and produces hormones and proteins. When healthy, they assist the liver in processing or removing fat and toxins and assist our muscles in keeping blood sugar down. Healthy fat cells play an important role and ensure that our bodies are functioning properly. When fat cells are enlarged, they don’t produce enough of the hormone, Adiponectin, resulting in dysfunction. Without Adiponectin, the liver becomes less efficient, muscles cannot use glucose for energy, more fat gets stored, and there is an increase in blood pressure. The result is enlarged fat cells. This is where the Zerona Z6 Fat Loss Laser has helped.
Our fat is an organ which has to be cared for. With the importance of fat cells in our body’s day-to-day functioning, cutting out or killing fat cells is certainly not the answer! Liposuction and freezing techniques damage fat. Zerona Z6 Fat Loss Lasers safely penetrate your fat cells causing them to release their fatty content for safe removal from the body by the lymphatic system while keeping the fat cells from harm. These cells now begin to act and function like healthy, lean fat cells again.
What should I expect after the treatment is done?
After the treatment is done, you will stand for 10 minutes on our VibePlate. The vibration plate is a low platform that you will stand on to encourage movement of the lymphatic system. It is essential that you intentionally keep the lymphatic system clearing the liquid fat which has been released. The VibePlate is the first step. You will be given instruction on gentle stretching and movements to do during the time you are on the plate. After the vibration therapy is done, you will be given a bottle of water to drink. It is of utmost importance to hydrate after the Zerona Z6 cold laser treatment! Recommendations on other ways to keep the lymphatic system moving, on supplementation, on attainable exercise goals and on reasonable changes to the diet will be addressed. It is completely up to each individual how successful they are in keeping the inches off. The Zerona Z6 laser treatment works. Zerona treatments are proven effective, having undergone multiple double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials. The rest is up to you!
Are there any other benefits to the Zerona Z6 Treatments?
The only scientifically proven benefit to treatment with the Zerona Z6 Laser is fat loss. However, there have been other documented changes that people have had as they have gone through their treatment plans. Some clients have seen a decrease in their blood sugar and A1C levels. Others have reported a reduction in levels of the bad cholesterol and an increase in levels of good cholesterol. Positive changes in liver enzymes have been observed. Fat cells store pollutants that cause inflammation and metabolic disorders. The Zerona Z6 laser treatments allow the cells to dump contaminants which were stored in the cell so your body can detoxify, decrease inflammation and increase metabolism. Fat cells play a role in the immune system. Keeping them healthy will help you be healthy. The most common reported benefit after a Zerona Z6 laser treatment is more energy and less brain fog.
How many treatments will it take to see changes?
Every person’s body is different! In as little as six treatments with the Zerona Z6 laser, people are seeing differences in fat loss and body contouring. The number of treatments a person needs will vary depending on the treatment goals. Obviously it will take longer to see changes in bodies that need to decrease more fat. We will discuss each person’s treatment plan depending on their need and desire. Treatments can be done as often as every other day. Zerona treatments two to three times weekly are recommended for the best and quickest changes. Clients in Erchonia’s clinical trial study lost an average of 3.72 inches in just 6-40 minute sessions. Mayo Clinical Research Study showed the best results with 12 sessions twice weekly. Individual results using Zerona will vary.
