Lose 3 to 9 inches in just 2 weeks!

We all like to look our best. As we age, our skin begins to thin, sag and wrinkle. In addition, our bodies tend to accumulate undesirable fat. In many cases, no amount of dieting or exercise seems to reverse these changes. Up until now, spot fat reduction has been impossible without invasive surgery. Now the Zerona non-invasive, low level laser can target and shrink these stubborn and unsightly areas of fat to create a more shapely figure.

Sometimes losing just a few inches is all you need to improve your appearance, help your clothes fit better, and improve your self-confidence. Six painless treatments with the Zerona laser at Dr. Paul Thaxton's Advanced Medical Weight Loss Center in Evans can help you get there in just two weeks.

Zerona is a clinically proven, safe and non-invasive laser treatment designed to shrink fat cells for the purpose of reducing inches from the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, buttocks, love handles, chin, knees, neck and arms. Zerona utilizes a patented low level laser therapy to open the fat cell membrane, liquifying the fat which is composed of triglycerides and cholesterol. This allows the fat to leak out into the space between the cells called the interstitial space. Once the fat is outside the cell, the triglyceride fat is transported by the lymphatic system to lymph nodes where it is broken down into safe components, detoxified in the liver and subsequently used as energy or discarded as waste.

Body contouring occurs and inches are lost when the fat cell is reduced in size much like a large balloon deflates and shrinks to its original small size once an opening is created to release the air. Unlike other procedures that destroy the fat cell, the Zerona laser light does not injure or destroy the fat cell, blood vessels or surrounding tissue. This allows the deflated fat cell to continue its endocrine function of producing hormones that help decrease appetite. Since there is no tissue damage and no downtime, you can lose inches and undergo body sculpting with no one being the wiser.

Zerona is the first and only FDA-cleared low level 635nm laser approved for the circumferential reduction of the waist, hips and thighs. It is a low-level laser designed to get rid of body fat, shape, and tone the skin without invasive surgery. In clinical trials, patients lost on average 3.6 inches from around these three areas in as little as two weeks, but when other areas were measured, losses of 12 or more inches have been documented. Best candidates have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less, but even those with a higher BMI can also benefit.

The 40-minute treatments include 20 minutes on your back and then for 20 minutes on your front under the painless low level laser light while you listen to relaxing music in a comfortable private room. To assure success, it is essential that you follow the Zerona treatment protocol of six treatments administered over a two-week period along with other simple measures that will enhance your success. We recommend a Monday-Wednesday-Friday or Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday regimen (three treatments a week for two weeks).

While the Zerona low level laser offers many benefits over other procedures, no medicine or procedure works in a vacuum. At Advanced Medical Weight Loss, we believe that health and beauty come from within. After contouring your body and losing your unwanted inches, we find this creates a motivating springboard toward a desire for improved and sustained health and wellness. Being Board Certified by the American Board of Bariatric Medicine and American Board of Obesity Medicine, we are equipped and committed to teaching you the medical science of living longer and better. None of us have an option about aging but we can all choose to age optimally
