Do you want to get rid of stubborn fat that won’t disappear no matter how many hours you spend at the gym? Body contouring treatments such as Zerona and CoolSculpting help you reach your body shape goals. Both of these non-invasive body treatments are FDA-insured and target stubborn fat. Find out which one is best for you!
The Zerona body treatment involves a 635 nanometer red light that activates chlorophyll and causes the cells to react similarly to how a plant responds to sunlight. Fat cells contain a light-sensitive enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase that gets activated by Zerona’s cold laser.
A temporary pore located in the fat cell develops to allow lipid droplets to leave the cell and enter the space in between. The droplets travel through the lymphatic system towards the liver where it gets burned off as fuel.
Ideal candidates for Zerona are healthy adults with a healthy lifestyle who find it difficult to lose weight due to genetics, metabolism, and age.

The CoolSculpting treatment involves innovative technology that targets, freezes, and kills fat cells, which is a procedure known as cryolipolysis.
