Zap the Fat Away, Literally www.mynews4.com May 19, 2011

It’s a laser that literally shrinks the fat cells in your body. There’s just one place in town where you can find the new technology. A fat zapping laser sounded too good to be true, so News 4’s Mackenzie Warren took a closer look…

Carrie Anderson has fought the scale most of her adult life. She’s tried everything-wacky fad diets, even surgery. “I actually did have liposuction several years ago and while happy initially with the results fat came back in other spots,” says Anderson.

Anderson decided to try a newer procedure that targets those trouble spot. She chose the Zerona laser at the Esteem Medical Spa inside Posh Salon on Crummer Lane. After 12 weeks, Anderson lost nearly 14 inches. Doctor Michael Glass, owner of Esteem Medical Spa, says the cold laser reduces the size of fat cells in the body, creating tiny holes in the cell. Once the contents seep into your body’s circulation, they’re metabolized and exit the body harmlessly. After a double-blind study the FDA approved Zerona for both safety and effectiveness.

The machine looks like an octopus with five arms. Each projects laser beams onto the stomach, thighs and waist: all in an attempt to sculpt your body into how you’d like it to look. “I’ve lost inches all over my body-places I didn’t expect my neck,” Anderson says proudly.

Each session takes 40 minutes and about six sessions in two weeks for a full effect. There is no anesthesia, pain killers needed, or down time afterwards. Anderson says she can’t even feel a thing when she’s getting the treatment.

Zerona isn’t cheap. Esteem charges $1800 for a month-long program that includes a two-week session with laser sessions every other day. There’s a week of prep beforehand and a week of measuring and assessments after the sessions. Dr. Glass says results are best if patients work out during the treatment. He also tells his patients to avoid coffee and alcohol since those beverages can change the water balance in your body. Dr. Glass says the procedure is safe with no known side effects.

And for Anderson the feeling of buttoning those forbidden skinny jeans makes Zerona worth every minute and penny.

Can You Zap Away Fat With a Laser? Self’s Beauty Director Gives Her Results

Can You Zap Away Fat With A Laser?
Friday, July 22, 2011 at 9:41 AM   |  posted by selfeditor
SELF’s Beauty Director, Elaine D’Farley tested out three revolutionary anti-aging beauty treatments and bravely documents every detail. First up, the Zerona laser!
I love learning and when it comes to fat reduction I’m fascinated. There are lots of exciting things going on in the world of lasers, lights, and radio frequency treatments. For example, I was interested in Zeltiq when I heard about it. Cleared by the FDA in 2010 as a body contouring treatment, it uses a gel patch attached to a machine that freezes fat cells, making them self-destruct and get re-absorbed into the body over several months. I quickly set up an appointment and suddenly found myself strapped to a chair getting ready to freeze my pooch off, i.e. destroy my fat, when I realized I didn’t want to. Personally, the idea of killing part of my body to be slimmer seems counter intuitive to being healthy. When the nurse offered me ‘my last chance’ to disengage from the machine and call off the procedure, I did. I ran back to the office a bit traumatized but relieved. Then I heard about Zerona and WENT FOR IT..read on to see and hear about the results!
Zerona is a cold laser that helps fat cells develop pores allowing the stuff inside to empty out, flattening the fat cells, and then your body excretes it, just like when you detox, no self destruction required. I was intrigued. I liked the idea that my fat cells would remain intact, merely getting opened and drained, it made me feel more secure to know that the Zerona laser was encouraging and helping the body to do what it does naturally when you lose weight. I signed up for a consultation. I showed up at Dr. Jame Heskitt‘s office a bit wary. She was concise, quick and completely thorough in her description of the procedure along with being really knowledgeable about everything else out there, I trusted her. I decided to sign up for the six treatments.
On the designated day I showed up at 8:30am after dropping off my daughter at school and we did the “before” photos. Knowing how detailed SELF’s research team can get regarding these types of photos I was pleased to see little foot marks where you place your feet so that when you take the after photos you stand in exactly the same spot in the same way. Then I got measured. Next, I lay down on the bed with the lasers above me. It is completely painless; in fact it’s relaxing. I read and relaxed and 20 minutes later Dr. Jame popped in and turned me over. I marveled at the lights lingering over me like a benign octopus, noiselessly targeting my fat. It felt a little too good to be true. I returned five more times.

In between sessions I felt great, it was fun this idea of melting my fat while doing – ahem – nothing. You can’t drink alcohol while doing the treatments, so perhaps my diminished wine intake over 2 weeks helped melt a little fat too but however it works, I’ll take it. After the last session Dr. Jame told me to come back a week or so later because more fat would melt. I returned, we measured, and I lost! It worked: 9.5 inches overall. Here is the data to prove it:
