Wednesday Bubble: Just melt that fat away

Posted by on Feb 10, 2010 in Uncategorized, weight | 1 comment

What if someone told you that you zap that tired around your middle that’s suddenly appeared? Or melt away the flab on your thighs? According to manufacturers of Zerona™, low-level laser can be applied to the areas of fat deposits lying right below the skin to literally reshape and recontour the body. In fact, you can reportedly lose up to two sizes with only two weeks of treatment. What happens to the fat? It seeps into the body’s lymphatic system and then is used as energy.

Why does this sound too good to be true?

According to an in-depth piece in the New York Times, Zerona is readily available nationwide at a pricetag of $1700 to $3800 for six sessions. Experts say that results depend on the individual, including whether or not they are obese, have had prior surgery on the area that they want re-treated, and if they eat healthy and exercise. However, some experts say that it’s unclear how the body rids itself of fat and remain unconvinced that fat can be eliminated in a non-invasive way. On the other hand, data presented at the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery suggest as much as a 22% reduction of the fat layer in some people.

What do you think? Bubble or not? It might be too early to tell.  Although the company has reportedly submitted clinical information to the Food & Drug Administration in hopes of approval, so far, it’s just an experimental dermatologic treatment that can put a major dent in your bank account.

Zerona. “Reveal your true self.” Hmmmmm.

    did the zerona thing for a reduced rate and two weeks of treatment guess what i gained three lbs and did not loose inches. some areas remained the same some increased. told that i did not follow the procedure of not drinking the 8-12 glasses of h2o, taking the supplements and no caffiene, for me it was my coffee. i guess i was not a candidate. great idea but needs more success stories. i would not do this again if it was for free
