ZERONA® Body Contouring

Most of us have areas of unwanted fat that we would like to make disappear, but the thought of surgery and required recovery time can make you hesitate. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman offers ZERONA®, a new non-surgical treatment for body contouring in San Jose and Palo Alto.

Unlike tumescent liposuction, which is a surgical body contouring method, ZERONA is applied externally. It does not require incisions, anesthetic, or downtime. This completely non-surgical procedure uses the Erchonia® Laser Scanner to shrink targeted subcutaneous fat, which lies just beneath the skin, and enable the fat to be absorbed by the body's natural cleansing process. Patients can lose inches with ease.

ZERONA has been scientifically proven to reduce unwanted fat on the waist, hips, and thighs.1 For patients who desire more dramatic body sculpting, Dr. Hoffman offers liposuction, a proven surgical body contouring solution.

The Procedure

ZERONA body contouring treatments are performed as an office procedure, are completely non-invasive, and require no anesthesia. You simply lie back and relax comfortably as the laser is positioned over the targeted areas of fat. Each session typically lasts 40 minutes; 20 minutes on the front of the body and 20 minutes on the back. CoolSculpting® and SculpSure®, other noninvasive fat reduction treatments Dr. Hoffman offers, are also body contouring options to consider.

If the main cause of concern is cellulite, there are also minimally-invasive options to directly target the fibrous bands of connective tissue that cause dimples in the skin. Cellfina™ works by using a microblade to gently release the bands; Cellulaze™ works in much the same way, but uses a laser.

Recovery and Results

After your ZERONA treatment sessions, you may resume your normal daily activities without restrictions as there is no required recovery time. The treatment protocol consists of a series of 6 sessions, spaced out over 2 weeks. It is important that you stick to the prescribed treatment schedule to ensure fat reduction is optimized.
