5 Interesting Facts About Laser Sculpting

Would you like to lose an inch or more of body fat on your lunch hour? Who wouldn’t? Laser sculpting, also known as body contouring and non-invasive fat reduction, is an effective way to lose stubborn love handles, a belly pooch, or extra thigh lumps — without surgery.  

At Joyce Family Chiropractic and Wellness, Dr. John Joyce uses the FDA-approved Zerona® body sculpting laser to zap away unattractive fat deposits. Zerona body sculpting uses a low-level laser therapy treatment to emulsify your fat, or turn it into liquid, so that it can be easily flushed away.

Each treatment session lasts for only 40 minutes. Dr. Joyce applies the laser for 20 minutes on one side of your body, and then you flip over for him to apply the laser for another 20 minutes on your backside. Six sessions are recommended for maximum results.

This quick non-invasive treatment, which produces natural-looking results, has numerous additional benefits. Here are five:

No downtime

You can walk into Joyce Family Chiropractic and Wellness on your lunch hour, before work, or even before a big event or trip, and walk out of the office to your next appointment without missing a beat after a laser sculpting treatment. Unlike surgery or liposuction, which require weeks of rest and downtime, a Zerona treatment requires zero downtime to recover.

It works!

While this simple treatment might sound too good to be true, numerous clinical studies have confirmed its effectiveness in treating unwanted body fat without surgery. One study published in the Journal of Clinical Aesthetic Dermatology found that patients who had one treatment a week for six weeks lost about 4.5 inches combined around their treated areas and that the majority of the people who had the treatment described their experience as very satisfying.

Pain-free and side-effect free

Because there is no cutting or incision, no anesthesia is required. The laser uses low-level energy, so the procedure is comfortable and pain-free. Patients simply relax on the table as Dr. Joyce applies the laser. There is no bruising or redness following the procedure, and your risk of infection and other complications is negligible.

See results in weeks

Unlike other fat-reduction technologies that require you to wait months to see results, the results of the Zerona laser are apparent within a couple of weeks after you finish your treatments.

Treats numerous problem areas

The Zerona laser targets all your problem areas, not just one, for an overall slimmer look and improved figure. The treatment can help reduce fat in the following body parts:

More and more people are turning to laser sculpting to reduce fat and contour or shape their figure. The Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank reported that non-surgical fat reduction therapies have increased in popularity more than 200% since 2012.

Zerona is not a weight-loss treatment. Ideal candidates for this procedure are people who are in reasonably good shape with diet- and exercise-resistant fat.
