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

Friday, July 22, 2011


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. 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.

Primcogent Solutions Appointed Exclusive Provider for New FDA Cleared
Arm Sculpting ZERONA Laser

Release Date: 2012-06-06


DALLAS, Texas – Proven safe and effective for circumferential reduction of the upper arms


Primcogent Solutions, the exclusive provider in North America and Western Europe for the ZERONA body sculpting and LLLT systems by Erchonia, announced today that it obtained exclusive marketing, sales and distribution rights in those same markets for the recently FDA cleared ZERONA AD system.


The Zerona AD has received market clearance (May 2012) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to safely and effectively reduce upper arm circumference. The ZERONA AD is the first non-invasive aesthetic device to receive this 510k market clearance in the U.S., and the only device on the market to specifically target and sculpt upper arms.


The ZERONA AD received market clearance following Erchonia’s completion of a placebo‐controlled, randomized, double‐blind multi-center clinical investigation of 62 participants. The results obtained from the study showed a combined reduction in arm circumference of 3.7cm (1.50 inches) in the treatment group versus 0.31cm (0.10 inches) in the placebo-controlled group after six treatments over two weeks. Long-term follow-up at an average of 7.6 months showed results persisted with essentially no change from the two week measurement.

“After seeing firsthand the impressive results of the ZERONA non-invasive body sculpting device on patients’ waist, hips and thighs, we thought it was important to assess the efficacy of the low-level laser on the upper arms,” said Mark S. Nestor, MD, PhD, Director of the Center for Clinical and Cosmetic Research and Center for Cosmetic Enhancement. “The upper arms are unique in that no other confounding factors, such as diet and exercise, can affect the circumference over a relatively short period of time. The results of the study indicate that low-level laser therapy (ZERONA) is effective in reducing upper arm circumference and providing long-lasting results with high patient satisfaction without any pain or side effects.”




New ZERONA Device is Placed in Amityville, NY

Release Date: 2012-05-31

DALLAS, Texas – 5/31/2012 - Primcogent Solutions announced today that another ZERONA laser device is in place at Nassau Suffolk Internal Medicine, located at 618 Broadway, Amityville, NY 11701.

Over the last year, Primcogent has seen a significant increase in ZERONA distribution and patient interest since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted market clearance for the non-invasive body contouring device. Over 1,000 ZERONA devices are in medical professional practices throughout North America who have treated in excess of 80,000 patients.

"Consumer satisfaction and demand has helped fuel the increased growth of placements," said Michael Browning, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development of Primcogent. "We are fortunate to have a strong network of medical professionals who have incorporated ZERONA into their practice to help transform bodies with zero surgery, pain, bruising or recovery time."

ZERONA was granted market clearance by the FDA last year and is a low-level laser that has no thermal effect on the body's tissue. Instead, the non-invasive laser helps the body absorb fat by stimulating the biological function. Excess fat is removed naturally by the body without the negative side effects and downtime associated with more invasive procedures such as liposuction.
